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.

How long are visits and how many visits will I need?

Session times can vary. Employee Assistance Program visits are generally 45- 50 minutes long and are based on a brief model of counseling that typically allows for an average of 4-6 visits. You may be eligible to continue further treatment on a self-pay or insurance-covered basis. Other types of visits can vary, but are most commonly 50-60 minutes in length. Session times longer than 60 minutes are also available on a case by case basis. Ultimately, how long you continue treatment depends on your specific treatment goals, your counselor's recommendations, and your own personal preference. 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 you work together to develop a focus for treatment and a plan for how to meet your specific goals.
