In order to serve the public and increase community involvement Invictus Counseling will be offering a limited number of alternative options (1 sliding scale and 1 free at any one time) counseling services to the community.
About Pro Bono Services
Pro Bono counseling is free service available to individuals who are unemployed, uninsured, under insured, or unable to afford traditional counseling services. This may include individuals who are struggling with situations such as unemployment, life changes, depression, anxiety, grief or marital issues. We will provide short term counseling (approximately 12 sessions or less, depending on the course of time-limited treatment--PE, CPT, EMDR) to the recipient.
Pro Bono Services Eligibility Criteria*
Due to the availability of time there are some clients who may be not appropriate for our Sliding Scale/Pro Bono services.
Individuals and couples not eligible for Pro Bono counseling services at Invictus Counseling would be:
All Sliding Scale/Pro Bono clients are pre-screened for appropriateness. If at any point an individual or couple is determined to need more intensive services than our counselors can offer, they will be referred out to be linked to the appropriate services.
*Your sessions begin when you schedule your first counseling session. If you cancel or do not show up for your first appointment, you will no longer be eligible for pro bono services. If at any point you fail to cancel within the 24 hour cancellation time period, show up late or are a “no-show” for your appointment your pro bono services will be cancelled. You can continue counseling sessions with Invictus Counseling, but you have to pay the fee appropriate for your type of counseling. Fees are $150/hour. Sessions for pro bono are 1 session for 12 consecutive weeks not to exceed 4 months. You will need to sign a Pro Bono Consent form before beginning services.
**Sliding scale clients will sign a regular consent and a No Surpises Act Agreement and are bound to the same consent requirements as full pay and insurance clients.
