Counseling is an investment in yourself, your relationships, and your future. The growth you make at Brave lasts a lifetime.
You are worth it!
Payment is due at the time of appointment. Cash, check, and all major debit/credit cards accepted. You may also use your flex and health savings account (HSA). As per policy and for your convenience, we ask you to store a debit/credit card with the secure client portal upon intake. You may choose to use your CC on file regularly or as a backup.
Brave does not accept insurance as an in-network provider. We choose to work directly with you, rather than work for insurance companies.
We do provide a receipt for services, also knowns as a Superbill. This helps you obtain reimbursement from your insurance provider. Please be aware your insurance provider may choose to cover all, some, or none of these services. Therefore, before your first session, I suggest you contact your insurance company to verify your out-of-network coverage of outpatient mental health services.
For those who need a reduced rate closer to the cost of a co-pay, work with one of our Counselors in Training!
Psychotherapy is an investment in yourself. The growth you make in therapy lasts a lifetime. Before your intake appointment, your therapist will review your paperwork. During your first appointment, you'll have a chance to dive deeper into your current stressors, symptoms, and history. Together you'll clarify your goals and begin to make a concrete plan.
Our therapists specialize in women's issues. We love working with kids, teens, college students, adults, couples, and families. We want you to find a therapist who's a great fit! Our office is located in Columbia, MO. We are happy to provide virtual appointments using our secure video platform.
Fees vary based on the clinician you choose and the service they are providing. Rates range between $100 to $135 per 55-minute session. Our Clinical Interns also offer reduced fees and sliding scale appointments.
Evening & Weekend Appointments are available. These slots have limited availability. Please contact us and inquire.
Coaching helps you bridge the gap between learning the skills and actually implementing them. Rather than simply discussing the things you want to achieve you'll have the opportunity to perform tasks in real-time with your coach. Along the way, your coach will be providing education, guidance, and feedback. We will explore various ways for you to complete your desired tasks while ultimately achieving your goal.
Individual Coaching: The cost of sessions varies based on which Coach you work with. This is due to the difference in education, training, experience, and licensure. During the intake, we will gather history, current symptoms, stuck points, and concrete goals.
Rates vary based on which coach you choose, and the amount of time you need. Rates begin at $135.
Group Coaching: Depending on your needs Group Sessions can be a great option. We often recommend these sessions for students or professionals needing accountability to complete tasks or assignments.
Group Rates vary based on the educational background and experience of the group leader(s) and how many leaders there are. Rates are less than the cost of the average counseling session led by a fully licensed counselor.
Are you ready to jump into counseling but worried you couldn't afford our fees? We understand your budget might be tight right now. We want to reduce the financial obstacles. Our Brave Counselors in Training offer affordable counseling at reduced rates and sliding scale fees for less than $60 per 55-minute session. We have limited pro bono/free slots. Our Counselors in Training (CIT) are qualified to work with a wide range of ages (i.e. children, adolescents, adults) providing individuals, couples, families, and group counseling.

As Graduate Counseling Interns, CTI’s are under the direct supervision of their professors, our fully licensed therapists, and attend weekly clinical supervision meetings. Similar to many other professions, therapists are required to get hands-on experience to graduate from their master’s program. Our Counselors in Training (CIT) are on the verge of completing the rigorous requirements for their Graduate Degree Program.

It doesn't matter if your child is 5 or 25 years old, you want to be in the loop. You want to be supportive. Many young adults, especially college students, may choose to have a parent be present for a part, or all, of their intake or follow-up appointments. Our doctor wants you to have plenty of time to provide additional history and ask questions. Your participation can be incredibly helpful! We understand these appointments require additional time.
As a parent, you are a critical component of your child's care. Our doctor ensures you and your teen have plenty of time to gather information, ask questions, and develop a treatment plan.

You are welcome to include your teen in this process of completing the online forms if you feel it is appropriate. Your doctor will review this information prior to meeting with you. This allows you to get started!
