Hickory Grove offers Clinical Counseling for members of Hickory Grove Baptist Church and non-members. According to the American Counseling Association, “professional counseling is a professional relationship that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals” (American Counseling Association). We blend Christ-centered, biblically based principles, along with proven psychological principles to promote emotional, relational, and spiritual healing. This relationship may be short- or long-term, depending on the issue you present. Clinical Counselors at Hickory Grove are licensed by the state of North Carolina or pursuing licensure. There is paperwork and a fee for counseling with Clinical counselors.
What is the fee?
There is a fee for the professional counselors. This will vary depending on the counselor’s experience, training, and license. The fee normally ranges from $120 to $165 per session. Our graduate interns are $10.00 per sessions, so if there is a financial need, they are a good option.
In Summer 2023, we will be moving out of Hickory Grove and to the Mint Hill area. Please visit our website for more information. TabonucoCounseling.com
Our graduate counseling interns offer counseling at a reduced rate to individuals and couples. This includes adults, adolescents, and children. Our interns are receiving either their masters or doctoral degrees in counseling. They all receive training and supervision from the clinical supervisor in the counseling center, Dr. Christa Phipps, and their respective universities.
The goal of our internship program is to offer quality counseling free to people who cannot afford it while training new counselors on how to incorporate faith-based principles with the clinical skills necessary to be effective. Sessions last from 45 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the arrangement made with your intern. The initial paperwork will be provided once you are assigned an intern - through a secure client portal.
