Counseling Fees

Because CrossLife Ministries is a non-profit ministry, individual counseling fees are reduced from standard for-profit fees.

Standard Counseling Fees and Expenses – There is no fee charged for a 30-minute initial consultation. After initial consultation, our counseling fees are charged at $75.00 per hour (reduced rates are available based on annual income), plus expenses. Travel time is charged at half the normal rate. Expenses include such things as long distance phone calls, materials, and traveling expenses (i.e., meals, transportation, lodging, etc.). Those who need help with fees are encouraged to apply for reduced fees, based on need (determination is based on annual income).

Fees are payable in advance of each counseling appointment.
