Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a Christian to use your services?

All Things New Counseling is a faith-based agency, fostering emotional healing and growth in a spiritually informed context guided by the truths of Biblical scripture. However, you do not have to be a Christian to receive services from ATN. The approach of ATN is to simply meet you where you are in your own life journey.

How much does counseling cost?

Your actual cost for services can vary greatly depending on such factors as whether or not you have insurance benefits. Please see the questions below for more information.

Will my insurance pay for services?

Kristin provides in-network for most major insurances and many Employee Assistance (EAP) programs. If you have benefits, it is likely that they will pay for at least a portion of your services. You can check directly with your insurance regarding outpatient mental health benefits, or ATN will be happy to assist with verification of your mental health benefits.

What if I don't have insurance and I'm in a financial hardship situation?

You may qualify to apply for reduced cost services on ATN's sliding fee scale in this circumstance. A limited number of reduced fee sessions are offered at any given time. If you feel you may qualify for reduced fee services, feel free to ask ATN for more information regarding the requirements for eligibility and how to apply.

How long does counseling take?

Counseling sessions typically occur on a weekly basis at first with session times lasting 45-50 minutes in some cases and 60  minutes in other cases. This will be discussed and determined at your intake and assessment process. How long you continue treatment depends on many variables. Some people may prefer to only utilize a few sessions and others may prefer to remain in therapy much longer. Kristin will discuss this with you as she works with you to develop a treatment focus and goals.
