FAQ

1. HOW MUCH DOES COUNSELING COST? 

JUST LIKE ANYTHING, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. COUNSELING COSTS VARY IN OFFICES ACROSS NASHVILLE AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS. AT DR. SCRUGGS COUNSELING, EACH 50-MINUTE SESSION IS THE BASE RATE $125 FOR AN INDIVIDUAL AND $150 FOR A COUPLE OR FAMILY. COUNSELING FEES FOR VIDEO CONFERENCING ARE THE SAME AS REGULAR SESSIONS. IN SOME CASES, YOU MAY QUALFY FOR THE SLIDING FEE SCALE. IF YOU'RE A MINISTER, MISSIONARY, OR EXPAT OUR FEES ARE NEGOTIABLE FOR VIDEO CONFERENCING DEPENDING ON HOW MANY REDUCED FEE CLIENTS I CURRENTLY SEE. A FULL PAYMENT IS EXPECTED AT TIME OF SESSION. YOU CAN PAY BY CARD IN ADVANCE HERE.

 

2. DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE? 

NO, DR. ANGELA SCRUGGS DOES NOT CURRENTLY TAKE INSURANCE. MANY INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL REIMBURSE YOU A PERCENTAGE OF THE MONEY YOU SPEND ON COUNSELING. EACH INSURANCE COMPANY IS DIFFERENT. CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY AND ASK THEM HOW IT WORKS. USUALLY ALL THEY WILL REQUEST IS A RECEIPT FOR SERVICES.

6. DO YOU OFFER ANY GROUPS? 

YES, I ENJOY GROUP THERAPY OR PROCESSING GROUPS. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN A SPECIFIC TYPE OF GROUP - LET ME KNOW AND I WILL PUT IT OUT THERE AND SEE IF THERE IS ENOUGH INTEREST TO START A NEW GROUP. PAYMENT FOR GROUPS DIFFERS FROM GROUP TO GROUP AND BETWEEN SITES. FEES RANGE BETWEEN FREE AND $20 PER PERSON PER GROUP SESSION. IF ANY GROUP IS DESCRIBED AS "OPEN" IT IS FREE FOR NEW MEMBERS TO JOIN AT ANY TIME AND USUALLY RUNS INDEFINITELY. ANY GROUP DESCRIBED AS "CLOSED" CLOSE ENROLLMENT UNTIL THE GROUP ENDS, USUALLY 6-10 SESSIONS DEPENDING ON TOPIC.
