How much does counseling cost?
Fieldstone Counseling operates on a contribution basis, according to what each person is able to give. We ask that those who come for counseling invest in their own counseling by donating to Fieldstone Counseling for each 50-minute session of counseling and according to your ability. We have found that similar counseling in the Northeast Ohio area ranges from $75 to $125 per hour. We ask for a suggested donation of $65 for individual counseling and $95 for marriage counseling.
What kinds of counseling issues does Fieldstone address?
People come to Fieldstone Counseling with many different struggles. Some of the issues that we regularly counsel include:
How many sessions will I need?
Fieldstone Counselors determine the number of sessions according to your individual needs. Your counselor will work with you to determine the number of sessions recommended, although your total investment is often not known at the onset of counseling.
How do I make an appointment?
To schedule your initial appointment, you will need to complete the intake paperwork. After that is submitted, a Fieldstone team member will call and schedule an initial appointment.
What if I cannot make my appointment?
We ask that you give at least a 24 hour notice for cancellations. If you fail to give us a 24-hour notice we would ask you to provide a $25 donation for your missed appointment.

Do you take insurance?
Fieldstone Counseling does not take health insurance for counseling payment. For those looking for financial assistance, we encourage you to apply for a reduced fee here or check with your local church for financial assistance.
What forms of payment do you take?
Cash, check, or credit card
Can I see someone immediately?
If you are unable to reach your counselor in a timely manner, you should contact a physician, a local emergency room or the local police department when necessary and appropriate by dialing 911.
How long do sessions last?
Typically, counseling visits are offered in 50-minute sessions. Sometimes counselors will suggest longer sessions if they feel it will help progress.
What is the difference between marriage and family sessions?
Marriage sessions are when both husband and wife are present for a counseling session; it is billed at the suggested donation rate of $95. Family sessions are when a parent/guardian and child are present together in a counseling session; it is billed at the suggested donation rate of $95. If the child/adolescent is seen in counseling without a parent or guardian present, the session will be billed at the individual rate of $65.
Any individual who is seen in counseling must have their paperwork completed and processed. For legal reasons, we cannot counsel individuals who have not completed this step.
May I sit in and observe my child’s session?
We encourage parents to have a conversation with their counselor about what is the best approach to counseling. Some of our counselors like to see the child/adolescent first before moving to joint family sessions, while other counselors prefer a joint family session at the beginning. Fieldstone Counseling believes that God has placed and given parents a unique calling and responsibility in their children’s lives. We seek to involve parents in their child’s counseling when it is helpful and appropriate.
For questions regarding the billing of these sessions, see the question above.
Does Fieldstone Counseling use licensed professionals?
Fieldstone Counseling does not use licensed professionals. Your Fieldstone counselor is trained in the use of the Scriptures in counseling settings. Although some of our counselors have additional training and/or licensure, for purposes of their counseling at Fieldstone, they solely practice biblical counseling, which requires a commitment to the position that the Scriptures provide the authoritative rule of faith and standard of conduct. Please note that, as biblical counselors, Fieldstone counselors are not professional counselors or professional therapists as described in Chapter 4757 of the Ohio Revised Code, and Fieldstone Counseling does not otherwise provide professional clinical counseling or professional mental health services.
Who uses remote counseling?
Anyone! We understand that there are circumstances in life that prohibit us from getting to a physical site for an appointment. While we always would prefer the opportunity to work with you in person, remote counseling is great alternative when that isn’t possible. We hope that remote counseling would be a blessing to meet you where you are.
How do you do remote counseling?
Fieldstone uses a secure, HIPPA-compliant, video-conferencing service called Doxy.Me. Prior to your session, you will receive an e-mail from your counselor with a link to log in. You will be placed in your counselor’s waiting room and when they are ready open the session. It’s that simple; no username and password or creating online accounts.
Is it any different to get started with remote counseling versus in-person counseling?
The process for remote counseling begins the same way. Complete the Intake Paperwork, and our team will get in touch with you to set up your appointment.
Do I need any special equipment?
No! Besides access to a strong internet connection, Doxy.me works on PCs or Apple devices; even a Chromebook can work. Make sure your device and/or computer has access to a camera and microphone.
