We do not currently bill insurance companies. We can provide receipts for clinical services for a client to submit to an insurance company for possible reimbursement. However, The Counseling Center at CELA cannot guarantee that any client will be reimbursed by their insurance company for clinical treatment costs.


If you need to cancel a scheduled session, please notify us at least 2 hours in advance. We do understand that this may not always be possible. Clients may be charged a fee, at the therapist's discretion, up to the full session price for a missed or cancelled session if less than 2 hours advanced notice is provided.
