Frequently Asked Questions
What are your fees?
Each 50 minute session is $80. A sliding scale is offered based on availability through OpenPathCollective.org
If you aren't able to financially commit to weekly sessions, consider healing with others in our groups. Group therapy is a great way to get introduced to the therapeutic process in an affordable manner.
Do you accept insurance?
No. However, we can provide you with necessary documentation to provide to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement. Call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask "is out of network psychotherapy by a licensed associate counselor in Arkansas is authorized?" If so, jot down what documents are required and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
What forms of payment is accepted?
Fees for services can be paid before or at the time of service with cash, debit, credit, Stripe, or Paypal.
Can you help me with VA disability claims?
Absolutely. We offer guidance on the submitting claims.
Do you do in-home sessions outside of central Arkansas?
Because of amazing technological advances, I am able to see clients via online technology. I conduct counseling sessions in a secure online conference room with the clients to meet the needs of any Arkansan that may be suffering in silence and can't physically come into my office.
How often do you do NCE exam prep seminars?
Starting in September 2018, there will be monthly 4-hours sessions, usually the 2nd Saturday of the month. Space is limited to 10 in-person or virtual participants in each seminar. The cost is $99. 2-Hour seminars are scheduled as needed. Be sure to "like" our Facebook page to see our latest events.
Do you see families at The Collective?
No. Many times the 50 minutes in session is the only time the client has to be alone and vulnerable. We ask that clients attend appointments alone when possible. If a client has a desire to receive marriage or family counseling, we have a great referral list that can accommodate that need.
Do you speak to groups?
Absolutely. The Collective can speak to your church, human resources department, or group regarding career counseling, coping skills, relationship building, and testing strategies.
How much are group sessions?
Both of the groups offered (Parent Group and Women Veteran Group) are offered bi-weekly and each 90 minute session is $30. Payment is collected in advance for the month.
Can I start a group session at anytime?
No. The dynamics of a group can drastically change by adding or losing group members. The groups that we offer are closed, meaning once the group has started a 6 session block, there won't be any new members added. Groups have curriculum and each session is different. The best way to get the most out of the group is to attend each session.
Do I have to commit to all 6 sessions?
Yes and no. Financially, group members are required to commit to 2 sessions at a time which typically works out to a monthly pay schedule. For example, if groups are the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, members are expected to pay for 2 sessions in advance. It's no different from youth gymnastics or karate classes; payments are generally made for an entire month. During the group application process, applicants will be asked to commit to the group and themselves for the duration of the 6 session group which is typically over the course of 3 months.
