Minnesota Counseling and Therapy Center

"Supporting children, adults, couples, and families"

We are here to help and to provide the best services for you and your family members. We have a couple different options for covering the cost of sessions at Minnesota Counseling and Therapy Center. 

The first option available to you is billing though your insurance company. If you haven't done so already, please contact your provider and ask if Erin Shobe or MN Counseling and Therapy Center is in-network with your personal plan. You will also want to ask what your out-patient mental health benefits are. They will help determine what will be covered under insurance, if you will have a copay, or if you will need to reach a deductible. Most insurance companies including: UCare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medica, United HealthCare, Preferred One, CIGNA, Hennepin Health Care, Atena, Humana are usually accepted insurances. Health Partners is not an insurance company we are able to work with.

The second option is to pay Out of Pocket or Privately for each appointment. Sliding scale fees are offered and based upon the household's annual salary. They are as follows:

Fully Licensed Providers
Erin Shobe, Melissa Tyler, Carol Strand, Elliott Odendahl 
$75/session <$30,000
$100/session $30,000 - $60,000
$125/session >$60,000

$85/session $30,000 - $60,000
$100/session >$60,000

Claire Debenetto $35/session

*These amounts are subject to change at-will and are not a guaranteed set fee for any client.

*If you require a lower rate than what is offered, please talk to us and we may be able to negotiate in certain circumstances.

You as a client can either pay before or after your current session. Or, you can be setup to receive monthly billing statements by mail. We do not accept online payments, but you can pay over the phone by credit card. We also accept personal checks.

If you come into financial hardships we do offer monthly payment plans in order to keep your account active. We can refuse the rights to service if the client becomes more than 90 + days delinquent on payments to their account.

We have also added packages that can be found under the Web Store tab. This is a new option that can be taken care of before your first appointment. 

If you have any further questions please feel free to give us a call!
