Research has found the most significant variable in Counseling/Life Coaching success is client readiness to explore and to take active steps toward change.
Commitment to counseling usually involves weekly session, however you will ultimately determine the level of support best for you. Counseling/Life Coaching relationships may be brief (a few sessions) or based on need for an extended period. The Counselor/Life Coach relationship is driven by need, strength of connection and nature of support being provided. Don’t be surprised if your Counselor/Life Coach becomes part of your support structure and you know and connect with them periodically over the years.
Counseling service with the majority of Attento Counselors is covered by your medical insurance, the cost of service will be determined by your co-pay or deductible–we will verify for you at point of intake. Life Coaching is a private pay only service, hourly rates differ from Coach to Coach.
While our clinicians are able to adjust some of the self pay rates to meet each client where they are at, please reach out to inquire on if your insurance is accepted. Many of our clinicians accept some of the larger insurance providers. See our online referral form for a complete listing.
This is a common mis-conception about counseling and insurance medical coverage–most major plans cover the cost of counseling support with few or no limitations.
