This page contains answers to common questions that many of
our families may have.
1. How long is the "normal" course of
There really is no "one" answer to this. The
better question is how well you and your therapist connect and
how clear your plan of action is. We have found in our
experience that as long as there is production during and
between sessions, then the process is continually being useful.

3. How much does therapy usually cost?
We at New Horizons take MOST every major insurance. We
also take many smaller insurances utilized by our
families. However, most insurances pay for ONLY a portion
of the full fee. You can expect to pay anything from
15-42.50 per session.
4. How long is a typical session?
Each session lasts for 45-50 minutes each. The first
session may last longer due to paperwork and other information
5. Do I need a referral from my primary care
Each insurance plan is a little different in the requirements
for this issue. Moreover, Preferred Care products, Blue
Choice Option, Preferred Care Option, Child & Family Health
Plus, and Aetna currently require preauthorization from your
PCP. Most of the Blue Choice products no longer require a
preauthorization from your PCP.
6. What is your philosophy with therapy?
We believe that EACH family should be respected and
honored. We also are committed to ensure that each family
caters their own solution based on their values and
7. Do you have any "Christian" counselors on
We do. Mark is a member of the North American Christian
Social Workers Association. He also receives MANY
referrals from area church and clergy members.
8. Who do you work with?
We work with many types of individuals. We specialize
in youth and their families but will work with anyone who
"fits" our style of counseling.
9. Do you see my child alone or do you meet with the
parents as well?
We believe that it takes a family to raise a child. Due
to this, we believe it is imperative that each family supports
the progress of its members. The constellation of each
session will vary (depending on the need) but each one will be
with the focus on working on the agreed upon treatment plan.
