We try to make counseling affordable to everyone so we have a team of counselors at each of our locations (Plano, McKinney, and Grapevine) with different levels of experience and specialties. With exceptions, these are the different session rates that we offer at Christian Counseling Associates.* Each session rate that we offer is correlated with the experience level of our therapists.*
Sr. Therapist - $150/session*
Our senior therapists have held their counseling license for at least five years or have a lot of life experience that helps them understand a greater variety of people to a greater extent. That means our senior therapists have seen numerous clients and have the most experience of any of our therapists. They have received training in many different specialties and have a variety of counseling interests.
