Step By Step Counseling, LLC is proud to introduce our Stepping Stones program. This program offers reduced fee or free counseling through our Graduate Counseling Interns. Our Counseling Interns provide the community with an option to have mental health counseling at a cost they can afford. They have availability in both daytime and evening hours. The Graduate Counseling Interns in this office are qualified to work with adolescents, adults, individuals, couples, families and groups. Some reasons why potential clients may choose this option for counseling would be that they have no mental health coverage, they cannot afford the insurance deductibles/co-pays, or did not qualify/want to use the sliding scale offered by other therapists in the office. Our masters level Graduate Counseling Interns are enrolled in a local university and are in their final year of their graduate counseling programs. Graduate Counseling Interns are always under the supervision of a licensed counselor as well as professors at their university. As clients will notice, they bring a new energy and vitality to the process of assisting clients.
