Protea Counseling & Consultation Group, PLLC does not accept insurance. Our therapists are dedicated to providing high-quality services to every client and are firmly committed to each person’s privacy and confidentiality. At Protea, you and your therapist are the only people that know you are in therapy and your session notes are private records. When insurance companies pay for your treatment, their employees (clinicians or not) have access to your treatment plans and session notes, thus risking your privacy and confidentiality. Insurance companies operate on a medical model, meaning they require a diagnosis to establish that you have “a medical necessity” to seek services in order to pay providers. Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not consider developmental/attachment trauma, existential issues, life-transitions, relationship issues, personal development, or self-improvement as “a medical necessity”. If a diagnosis is given, it will become a part of your medical record. This could present issues for you later on, and your decision-making might be called into question due to your emotional state.
We will provide you with all the necessary documentation should you decide to file with your insurance company, Please keep in mind your insurance company can place diagnostic information on the National Medical Database that is accessible by others.
Fees range from $80-$150 per session for individual therapy, and $125-$175 per session for couples and family therapy.
We offer a full range of counseling services that include:
Sometimes, the challenges and problems we face are too overwhelming to handle on our own. Individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, trauma, relationship issues, and interpersonal issues can benefit greatly from therapy.

Individuals in therapy can learn skills for handling difficult situations and making healthy decisions in order to live a fulfilling life. Our team of therapists will walk alongside you and support you in reaching your goals.
Relationships are hard and can often be challenging. At the same time, our relationships are the most important element that impacts overall feelings of joy and happiness in life. These relationships don’t happen automatically. They take work, time, and energy. Engaging in couples therapy is a courageous investment towards the future of your relationship. At Protea, we are committed to creating a safe place to help you build the type of relationship that will allow connection and build a meaningful, long-lasting, loving relationship together.
Child & Adolescent Therapy
Children and adolescents are facing some of the most challenging times. In addition to everyday stressors; issues such as divorce, bullying, going to a new school, relationship issues, or loss of a loved one can be overwhelming for them to process and work through. As a result, behavioral and educational difficulties often arise. Providing a safe environment for children and adolescents to express their feelings and help them learn healthy coping mechanisms is our goal here at Protea.
Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce, relocation, or the death of a loved one. Family therapy can also be effective in treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and chronic illness, or everyday concerns, like interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents. At Protea, we understand how difficult and sometimes complicated family relationships can be. We are here to guide, support and empower you and your family toward lasting change and commitment.
Many military veterans experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and substance abuse, among other issues. Due to the traumatic environment in which active military serve, veterans are at a significantly higher risk for developing these health concerns. Military personnel are at higher risk for developing post-traumatic stress because service members are intimately involved in wartime incidents that may be frightening, horrifying, and at times, life-threatening. These concerns can often be addressed and resolved with the support of a mental health professional.
