Frequently Asked Questions
How much do sessions cost?
Our fees vary based upon the experience and professional level of each counselor which range between $75 - $100. For specific fees please contact us.
Do you only counsel pastors?
Although the primary focus of BetterDays is to offer counseling and soul care for pastors, our counseling services are extended to all. Our trained counselors are qualified to address most if not all of life’s issues. For a more in-depth list, please visit our Services & Fees page.
How many sessions will I need?
BetterDays counselors will determine the number of sessions according to your individual needs. Your counselor will work with you to determine the recommended minimum number of sessions, although your total investment is often not known at the onset of counseling.
Do you take insurance?
BetterDays is a faith-based non-profit organization and does not accept insurance. Our year round fundraising extends our services to as many people as possible. If you are unable to pay the full amount, a minimum fee can be discussed. Your inability to pay the full amount does not have any bearing on scheduling sessions or the quality of the sessions.
Can I see someone immediately?
If you are unable to reach your counselor in a timely manner, you should contact a physician, a local emergency room or the local police department when necessary and appropriate by dialing 911.
What is a LPC?
A licensed professional counselor (LPC) is an individual who has satisfied all the state requirements for licensure (i.e., supervised counseling experience, passing a state licensing exam). These individuals are called to abide by ethical standards deemed appropriate by the licensing boards.
Are your counselors licensed?
Not all BetterDays counselors are licensed professional counselors (LPC). Some of our counselors operate solely as biblical pastoral counselors. Whether LPC or not, all of our counselors are trained biblical counselors who embrace a biblical philosophy with experience in vocational counseling. Although not all BetterDays counselors are LPC, all BetterDays counselors seek to abide by the highest of ethical standards and all counseling is conducted in a strictly confidential setting.
How long do sessions last?
Typically counseling visits are in 50-60 minute sessions. Sometimes counselors suggest longer sessions if they feel it will help progress.
