Fee Structure at the Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinic

Fees for Therapeutic Services: The fee structure for most psychological services at the Behavioral Health and Wellness Clinic (BHWC) is a sliding scale. This includes individual, couples, family and group psychotherapy. The fee is established by examining a client’s income and the number of people in the family. For our purposes, income includes earnings from all of the following: paid employment, student loans, disability payments, social security payments, and child support or alimony payments. If you are a dependent on another person’s tax return, then we calculate your fee based on that person’s income.

When you call the clinic to establish services, we will ask you questions about the nature of your problem to determine whether our training clinic would be a good fit for your needs. Then we will ask you about your income and the number of people in your household so we can estimate your fee for our services.
