Low Cost Mental Health Counseling

Sage Neuroscience Center is proud to offer a new service to those in our community that may not have access to Mental Health Services due to a lack of insurance coverage or financial hardship.

We have noticed a growing trend of individuals and families that have either lost their benefits due to job loss or cannot get employment or health care due to the recent economic hardships in this country. We would like to offer these individuals quality low-cost counseling with therapist interns and/or post-graduate therapists that are working toward their independent license. A patient can call and ask to be seen in our Community Access Clinic. You will be asked to fill out some paperwork before being screened for therapeutic appropriateness and then scheduled with a provider.

All therapists in training or counseling interns are supervised by independently licensed providers who hold them to the highest in clinical and academic standards. All potential therapists in this program go through a rigorous selection and training process that helps to ensure that only the creme of the crop are providing care. Call today to make an appointment.

      Suzanne, we will absolutely accept your insurance if we take that particular plan. I encourage you to fill out the new patient paperwork or send the new patient interest form and we can determine if you have benefits. Thanks for your interest.

      The cost is about $45.00 per session. All forms of payment are accepted. Thanks for the inquiry and I hope this information was helpful.

    Do you have a sliding scale for people who are indigent? Will you provide services for people under probation or parole?

      Yes, we do have a sliding scale for those who have difficulty affording treatment. And we will work with your probation and/or parole agent to meet your needs.

      Sage does not take UNM Care Insurance, but some of our providers will see patients with Medicare. I would suggest calling the office at 505-884-1114 and asking someone directly.

      Hi Michelle.

      WE do accept Medicare and have a number of providers who do marriage counseling. Generally the wait time is about 30 days out including insurance verification.
