What should I expect when I call?

We will gather information about your reasons for seeking services in order to determine how we can best meet your needs. This will also allow your therapist to prepare for their first meeting with you.  Additionally, we will collect your insurance benefit information and discuss payment options.  Finally, we will discuss your scheduling needs and availability for appointments.

How much does it cost?

Bradley Counseling Center is an “in network” provider with several commercial insurance companies and is also Illinois Medicaid certified provider for youth under age 18.

Costs of services are based on your individual insurance coverage (including deductible and co-pays) and may vary according to the service provided i.e. therapy, psychological testing, groups, etc.  Our client account specialists will assist you in verifying your insurance benefits as well as determining if you have a co-pay and how much it is.

Self-pay options are also available, and can be discussed further upon request.  For qualifying families, fees may be reduced according to a sliding scale.  All fees are due at the time of service.  We accept all forms of payment including cash, checks, credit cards, as well as HSA and flexible spending cards.

What happens at the first appointment?

In the first appointment, client rights and treatment consents will be reviewed to help you more fully understand the therapy process.  A clinical assessment will be conducted integrating information gathered at the initial intake phone call.  From that, an individualized treatment plan will be developed between you and your therapist which shall reflect a shared understanding of your identified goals for treatment.

Your therapist will meet with you at a regularly scheduled time, which will be discussed during the intake call and in your first session.  Sessions are typically 45-60 minutes where you and your therapist will work together on reviewing and achieving your treatment goals.  There may be times in which the therapist may meet with parents separately for youth under 18, meet individually with the youth or work more as a family depending on your identified needs.
