Counselors Assn. of Ga, American Counselors Assn., and International Assn of Christian Counseling Professionals.

FEES:
Our normal fee is $75.00 per 50 minute session. We also have a sliding-scale fee ($30-75)  based on income which is an option for those struggling or out
of work but may change the counselor that you may see.  NBCC accepts check, cash and debit or credit cards as well as insurance (see below).  Fees are
expected to be paid on the day of service unless you arrange with your counselor otherwise.  When you are assigned a counselor, she/he will call you for the
appointment time and you can discuss with her the fees or any special terms.

INSURANCE: Some of our counselors take insurance; please call the office to find out if the counselor you have chosen takes your insurance.  Insurances
accepted are mainly Blue Cross; Blue Shield, Cigna, Coventry, and Aetna but others qualify as well.   Many of our counselors will see a client for the insurance
co-pay price of $30-50 per session without even going through the hassle of insurance forms and the frustrations of others knowing your personal struggles.
You can avoid the hassles and  have the principles that you want shared in session. We can always provide professional invoices which most insurances will
pay as a out of network provider even if not on our list.   Please call our office with your insurance questions or to Schedule an Appointment to talk with  your
counselor about your options. We want your experiences here not to be agitating or money centered.

CONFIDENTIALITY:
All sessions are confidential and our files are kept locked. We do abide by the HIPPA guidelines for disclosure of private health-care information and American
Counselors Assn. Code of Ethics Manual.

COURT TESTIMONY:
If you are particularly needing a counselor who will testify in court for you, please tell us that up front so that the professional degree needed can be chosen
carefully.  There is a professional fee charged for court appearance or certified letters and affidavits.  These fees must be charged because counselors must
choose wording carefully in their documentation and miss regularly scheduled clients due to changes or delays in court schedules.  

PHONE COUNSELING:
This option is great for those that live outside the local area or have a lack of transportation that day. Please fill out the intake forms and mail them back or call
us with your mailing address.  Phone sessions are same length as normal sessions with a long distance charge added if needed which is usually minimal or
free with your phone plan. Your calls, letters or e-mails are private and confidential. Any paperwork, handouts, or books can be mailed to you.  Family
members like this option as well.  Call 770 831-1799 to get started.

LOCATION:
We are centrally located close to the intersection of Sugarloaf Parkway and Old Norcross Rd, being only about a city block away from that intersection. We are
in a green roof office building at 1585 Old Norcross Rd.  We are located right on the Gwinnett Bus line #40 bus route.  We have ample and free parking in our
office complex.

PREMARITAL COUNSELING:
Eight 1 hour sessions of premarital includes the following topics: Communication and listening skills, conflict resolution, maturity for marriage, Love versus
Infatuation, main problems in marriage/statistics, pillars of good relationships, hindrances to intimacy & intimacy needs, male/female differences, temperament
tests & differences discussed, budget & financial issues, children, sexual issues, roles in marriage, influences of family & previous relationships, list of items to
be discussed before marriage, and building your mates self image.  A blue certificate will be given upon completion which will give you a discount on your
marriage license for our county and others. We can probably tell you the areas that will be the greatest struggle for your upcoming marriage so you are
prepared.  Special rates of $50 per session are available or group rates for those wanting a group session with other couples.

YOU CAN CHOOSE WHAT TO BELIEVE:
For the Non-Christian, New Beginnings Counseling Center is a non-pressure secular Counseling Center in Lawrenceville, Ga. We have worked with many
people who do not want a Christian slant or prayer and would prefer that we not share those areas. Hindus, Muslims, Atheists,  as well as other belief systems
have come and derived benefit finding what changes need to  happen for a better life. As with all counseling you can always determine the advice that you
want to engage.  We will  work with you on what is healthy and balanced for life. Tell your counselor at the beginning that you are not wanting any religious
slant.

For the Christian, New Beginnings is a Christian Counseling Center in Lawrenceville Ga. We work with all denominations. We work with people where they
stand in doctrine and are not dogmatic or pushy, desiring to see the body of Christ grow and develop in their local church. We give scriptures for your
interpretation, we work with local pastors rather than against them and we do not proselyte clients into our individual home churches or beliefs.
