non-members whose ability to pay has been compromised by their life
It is difficult to predict the
number of sessions needed to maximize counseling. After the initial
consultation and after having identified and gained insight into the Client's

Both Client and counselor will
mutually agree upon the number of sessions to be provided in counseling. An
assessment will be made at the end of those mutually agreed upon sessions to
determine if further counseling is needed. Any further counseling sessions will
be mutually agreed upon by both Client and therapist at that time.
SPECIAL NOTE: All clients (Broadmoor members and non-members) seeking counseling for gambling addiction will be charged a flat fee of $85 per session.
A Member is defined as anyone who
has joined Broadmoor Baptist Church by decision of salvation in Jesus Christ,
followed Him in believer's baptism, attended a Discover Broadmoor class, and
been accepted for membership by the church as a whole OR has joined Broadmoor
Baptist Church through the transfer of letter from another Southern Baptist
Church, attended a Discover Broadmoor class, and been accepted for membership
by the church as a whole.
Fees are assessed on a sliding
scale based on the Client’s annual gross household income. Please see the Fee
Scale below for information concerning fees, payment requirements, and charges
for missed appointments.
Payment is due at the time services are rendered. Checks should be made payable to Broadmoor Baptist Church. Credit / Debit Cards are accepted (A Convenience Fee or 3% will be charged). Insurance is accepted (In-Network Provider Only). You are responsible for any payment denied by your insurance provider.
Services are by appointment only. Because the appointment is reserved for you, it is necessary to charge for appointments that are not canceled 24-hours in advance (charged at 50% of the usual fee). Failure to provide 24-hour notice of cancellation generally means that some other person is not able to use that appointment time.
The length of the therapy hour is approximately 45-50 minutes.
Unless otherwise agreed to by the therapist, accounts in arrears over two (2) sessions will result in the cessation of therapy until the outstanding balance is made current.
