What To Expect For Your Initial Appointment
Welcome to Southern Wake Counseling Center! We’re happy to have you here.
Our therapy process starts off with an initial assessment. This appointment typically lasts 60-75 minutes, during this time, you will have the opportunity to discuss why you are seeking help. Together, you and your therapist will lay the groundwork to start improving your mental health. We’ll collect general information and answer any questions. If this is your first time going to therapy, don’t worry. Our therapists approach each client with warmth and comfort.

Good Faith Estimate Notice
You have the right to receive a "Good Faith Estimate" explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services.
You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
