Appointment Fees and Location

Christian Consulting and Coaching are among the greatest investments you can make for yourself and those in your life.

At The Joy Coaching/Care Center, we do not believe services are only for those who are suffering from a spiritual, emotional issue. Most often people struggle simply due to natural changes and challenges in life. Getting help at these times is just as important for your health and well-being and is often necessary in order to prevent a more severe condition such as depression and panic attacks.

We offer a variety of financial options in order to best serve you and your coaching needs.

We have standard fees for services, primarily at an hourly rate; longer sessions are available as well. Please contact the office for current rates of various services. At times, such as due to financial hardship, a reduced rate can be discussed.




Payments are due at each session.   Balances need to be paid in full before or at the next scheduled session.

Current session fees are as follows: 
$48 per session (regardless of session participants), $58 per initial visit.


Coaching Care:

Coaching Care is typically a fifty-minute session that occurs once per week.  The individual session fee is $48.  We can also provide a sliding fee scale based on income of the client.  The sliding scale payment is available to those who provide tax returns, or paycheck stubs to confirm they are experiencing financial difficulty.  Our hourly sliding scale rate is calculated by multiplying one's gross family income by 0.1%. Fee waivers are available to individuals without income.



Cancellation Policy:

The Joy Coaching / Care Center requires a 24-hour notice (business days) of cancelled appointments. We have a list of clients waiting to fill any open hour. Therefore, with less than 24 hours notice a fee will be charged to the client if we are unable to fill that hour. Please cancel by voicemail or email.

Missed/Failed Appointments & Late Cancellation Fees:

Clients will be charged the equivalent fee for the client’s maximum allowed contracted rate on their specific panel for missed appointments and late cancellations.


Phone Consultation:

The primary services we offer are face-to-face coaching and consulting sessions in the office setting. However, at times phone consultation may become desirable and/or necessary. A cash rate may be discussed with the Coach for such services. Schedule a session now by clicking “Contact Us” above or below this note. 



Zoom/FaceTime/Distance Coaching sessions:

We also have the ability to offer this service while you are in the office with family members who are not local. We would require a consent form from these individuals to be completed and faxed back to our office before the session would take place.

Distance coaching is an approach that takes the best practices of traditional coaching/Christian Care, as well as some of its own unique advantages and adapts them for delivery to clients via electronic means in order to maximize the use of technology-assisted coaching/care techniques. The technology-assisted methods may include tele-coaching (telephone), secure e-mail communication, chat, videoconferencing or stand-alone software programs.

If you do not live in Pulaski County/ Somerset, KY area but are a US resident we can arrange online sessions to take place. If you live or travel overseas, you may be able to work with us regardless of what state you are from in the United States. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation.

Online sessions are great for college students who are from Kentucky or any state or may go to school outside of the U.S.


Why should I pay out of pocket vs. using insurance?

It is important to understand a few issues when choosing to use your insurance for mental health services. When receiving clinical services, you will be forming a record of your status and treatment, just like a medical record.

That means that in order for insurance to cover this treatment, there must be an illness, or disorder, that is diagnosed and reported to the insurance company, just like a flu diagnosed by a doctor demonstrating a reason for the treatment.

Based on the clinical diagnosis, this could mean that if you’re are in a non-group policy your insurance company can place an additional rider, add a supplemental deductible or raise the cost of your monthly premium in the future should they find that their cost of covering your services will increase. In fact, many insurance companies require status updates on treatment which can include requests for specific information about your lifestyle ( drinking, recreational drug use, mood changes, self-injuring thoughts, sleep disturbances, etc). This information can potentially be used to penalize you in renewals for medical and life insurance as we cannot guarantee what your insurance company shares with other companies.

When paying out of pocket for coaching and consultant sessions, there is more confidentiality in the sense that insurance companies do not have access to the record of your treatment. In addition, you are also able to participate in a wider variety of services without being required to have a diagnosis reported back to your insurer. The Joy Coaching / Care Center,  Wellness Associate does not guarantee the confidentiality of your billing and diagnosis codes once we bill your insurance.

Many insurance companies don’t cover sessions more than once per week, or double sessions, phone sessions, group work, marriage counseling, workshops, and other types of assistance that might be especially helpful to you. Paying out-of-pocket means that you can seek these other types of treatment when you and your clinical Christian Care Coach think it is suitable.

Many insurance companies allow only a certain number of sessions per year, which may not be enough to address the concerns that brought you to therapy in the first place. Insurance companies reserve the right to manage how often and how long you can use your benefits and may decide that you cannot use your full number of sessions for certain problems. When paying out-of-pocket for Christian Coaching and Care, you and your counselor will work together to figure out how long you can stay in the Coaching-Care Program and what issues you want to work on as a priority.
