LICENSES
Our Counselors are state licensed professionals in the state of Ga (LPC, CPCS, LCSW, LMFT) and are supervised by a Ga. Licensed Professional Supervisor.   Our Pastoral Counselors are certified by national certified Christian agencies as well (AACC, GCCA, IAACP,  Logos International)   This is to guarantee you the best of professional services whether you choose secular or faith based.

FEES
Our normal fee is $80.00 per 50 minute session. We also have a sliding-scale fee based on income which is an option for those struggling or out of work but may change the counselor that you might see.   Please don't hesitate to discuss your financial issues with us.  We want to help those needing counseling who come to us.   Contact us first to see.  NBCC accepts checks, cash, Square, Paypal and debit or main credit cards as well as insurance (see below).  Fees are expected to be paid on the day of service unless you arrange with your counselor otherwise. When you are assigned a counselor, she/he will call you for the appointment time and you can discuss with her the fees or any special terms at that time.

INSURANCE  Some of our counselors take insurance; please call the office to find out if the counselor you have chosen takes your insurance. Insurances accepted are mainly Blue Cross; Blue Shield, Cigna, Coventry, and Aetna but others qualify as well. Some of our counselors will see a client for the insurance co-pay price of $35-50 per session. We can also provide professional invoices for your insurance to reimburse. Please contact our office with your insurance questions or to Schedule an Appointment to talk with your counselor about your options. We want your experiences here not to be agitating or money centered.

CONFIDENTIALITY
All sessions are confidential and our files are kept locked. We do abide by the HIPPA guidelines for disclosure of private health-care information. We abide by the code of ethics of the American Counseling Assn.

COURT TESTIMONY
If you are particularly needing a counselor who will testify in court for you, please tell us that when you call so that the professional degree needed can be chosen carefully. Please inform us before your first visit so that the right counselor may be chosen. There is a professional fee charged for court appearance or certified letters and affidavits for court. These fees must be charged because counselors must choose wording carefully in their documentation and miss regularly scheduled clients appointments due to changes or delays in court schedules.

PHONE COUNSELING
This option is great for those that live outside the local area or have a lack of transportation or children. Please fill out the intake forms and mail/fax them back. Your calls, letters or e-mails are private and confidential. Any paperwork, handouts, or books can be mailed to you.  These sessions are just as enjoyable.   Just tell our receptionist the counselor that you want to see.    ;Call 770 831-1799 to get started.

LOCATION
We are centrally located close to the intersection of Sugarloaf Parkway and Old Norcross Rd, being only about a city block away from that intersection. We are in a green roof office building at 1585 Old Norcross Rd. We are located right on the Gwinnett Bus line #40 bus route. We have ample and free parking in our office complex.  It is a red brick building with  short white columns with the number boldly on the building.  There is a top level call 200 level and another one around back which has other offices.  PLease come to 200 building since we are suite 203

PREMARITAL COUNSELING: (Required by Gwinnett County to get a discount on a marriage certificate);
Eight 1 hour sessions of premarital includes the following topics: Communication and listening skills, conflict resolution, maturity for marriage, Love versus Infatuation, main problems in marriages/statistics, pillars of good relationships, hindrances to intimacy & intimacy needs, male/female differences, temperament tests  differences discussed, budget & financial issues, children, sexual issues, roles in marriage, influences of family & previous relationships, list of items to be discussed before marriage, and building your mates self image.  A blue certificate will be given upon completion which will give you a discount on your marriage license for our county and others. We can probably tell you the areas that will be the greatest struggle for your upcoming marriage so you are prepared. Special rates are available or group rates for those wanting a group session with other couples.

SPIRITUAL FOCUS  AVAILABLE IF DESIRED: 
For those who want a faith-based, spiritual  focus you can elect to have prayer and or discuss scriptures, spiritual issues, or any principles with pastoral counselors who have training or degrees in Bible Colleges as well. We work with all denominations and churches and have many that refer us (see above). We work with people where they stand in doctrine and are not dogmatic or pushy, desiring to see the body of Christ grow and develop in their local church. We give scriptures for your interpretation, we work with local pastors rather than against them and we do not proselyte clients into our individual home churches or beliefs.   We do not try to make you feel guilty or condemned.  That is not our job.
