FEES:
Our normal fee is $75.00 per 50 minute session. We also have a sliding-scale fee  based on income which is an option for those struggling or out of work but
may change the counselor that you may see.  NBCC accepts check, cash and debit or credit cards as well as insurance (see below).  Fees are expected to be
paid on the day of service unless you arrange with your counselor otherwise.  When you are assigned a counselor, she will call you for the appointment time
and you can discuss with her the fees or any special areas of interest to you.

INSURANCE: Some of our counselors take insurance; please call the office to find out if the counselor you have chosen takes your insurance.  Insurances
accepted are mainly
Blue Cross; Blue Shield, Cigna, Coventry, and Aetna but others qualify as well.   Many of our counselors will see a client for the insurance
co-pay price of $30-50 per session
without even going through the hassle of insurance forms or the frustrations of others knowing your personal struggles.
You can avoid the hassles and  have the principles that you want shared in session. We can
always provide professional invoices which most insurances will
pay as a out of network provider even if not on our list.  Please call our office with your insurance questions or to Schedule an Appointment to talk with your
counselor about your options. We want your experiences here not to be agitating or money centered.

CONFIDENTIALITY:
All sessions are confidential and our files are kept locked. We do abide by the HIPPA guidelines for disclosure of private health-care information and
American Counselors Assn. Code of Ethics as well as Pastoral Counselors Code of Ethics.  Both have high standards of integrity.

COURT TESTIMONY:
Most of our counselors do not wish to testify in court due to long hours waiting for court testimony to be heard.  A professional letter can be given for court
cases, given to your lawyer and placed into your records.  There is a professional fee charged for court appearances or long affidavits.  These fees must be
charged because counselors must choose wording carefully in their documentation or miss regularly scheduled clients due to changes or delays in court
schedules.The Court appearance fee is usually around $400 for a whole

YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT YOU BELIEVE:  (You have Options Here)
For the Non-Christian, New Beginnings Counseling Center is a Professional Counseling Center in Lawrenceville. We have worked with many people who do
not want a Christian/Spiritual slant and would prefer that we not share those areas. Hindus, Muslims, Atheists,  as well as other belief systems have come and
derived benefit finding what changes need to  happen for a better life. We will then work with those clients on what is healthy and balanced for life and increase
their knowledge with understanding.  Tell your counselor at the beginning that you are not wanting any religious/spiritual slant.  We do Cognitive Behavior
Therapy (CBT at NBCC).

For the Christian, New Beginnings is a Christian Counseling Center in Lawrenceville Ga.   We work with all denominations and belief systems. We work with
people where they believe in doctrine and are not dogmatic or pushy, desiring to see the body of Christ growing and developing in their local church. We give
scriptures for your interpretation, we work with local pastors rather than against them and we do not proselyte clients into our individual home churches or
beliefs systems.  Prayer is allowed in sessions and scriptures can be used for encouragement.  Should you, your spouse or your pastor have questions,
he/she can contact our director who will gladly share how we use spiritual insights.  Many of our daily choices are affected by what we believe.
