Counseling Services FAQ's

 

TACC is unique in that we provide counseling to all of those who either can or cannot afford a full counseling session fee of $150. Our experienced and licensed therapists work toward the goal of providing a safe non-judgmental environment in which one can experience and explore their entire range of thoughts, feelings, emotions and ideas. We work in the best interest of wholeness and healing. TACC counselors value the diversity of those we serve and, in all cases, honor the beliefs of each individual.

Can you prescribe medication?

No, we currently do not have a psychiatrist on staff. (To prescribe medication, one has to be a Medical Doctor M.D.) However, we will refer you to a specialist who can work with you. Please talk with one of our counselors about how medication and therapy can work together.

 

What if I prefer a certain kind of counselor specifically? Can I meet with a counselor once to see if we are a “match”?

All of our counselors are credentialed mental health professionals and/or pastoral counselors. We will listen to your preferences and our Clinical Director will make every effort to meet your request, as we offer a growing and diverse professional counseling staff. You are welcome to make an initial appointment where you can find out about the specifics of our location, details of policies/confidentiality, and other aspects of the counseling process, as well as determine if you feel like you make a good connection or fit with the counselor. At the end of the first session, you may either decide to continue with that person, request another therapist or determine any other next steps.
