Fees for Services

There's no charge for the initial assessment. A small fee (determined with your counselor based on your income and a sliding scale) will apply for ongoing counseling. Career testing and counseling is also subject to very reasonable fees. Your counselor will discuss these fees and work with you regarding any financial concerns you may have.
