Email Session Rates

We offer synchronous and non-synchronous email sessions with various rates as detailed and outlined below. There is no maximum word limit to any email message.

Definitions:

One “email exchange” is: one email generated by the client that is sent to the counselor and one counselor response (to that email) sent to the client.

One “week” is: a series of five (5) consecutive business days. The Counseling Center at CELA is typically not open Sundays and Mondays and does not schedule appointments these days, unless by special arrangement between client and counselor.

Synchronous means that the client and therapist are emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.

Non-synchronous means that the client and therapist are not emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.

Synchronous Email Rates

Synchronous email sessions are scheduled and timed in the same way that video, telephone, and in-person sessions are scheduled and timed.

  • $120 for one 60-minute session (synchronous)
  • $150 for one 90-minute session (synchronous)

Non-Synchronous Email Rates

Non-synchronous email sessions are billed according to the total number of email exchanges. Non-Synchronous emails do not have to be scheduled. The typical response time to non-synchronous, client-generated email exchanges is within 2-3 business days during regular business hours or according to special scheduling arrangements between client and therapist. There is no maximum word limit to any message.

Clients who wish to have non-synchronous email sessions can choose to pay in advance by the week or the month for a certain number of email exchanges or to pay at the time of service. This is highly individualized as each person has different needs.

Many clients go by the week to accommodate fluctuating health issues, often skipping weeks depending upon how they may be physically feeling at any point in time. Non-synchronous email sessions can be purchased one at a time or in Bundles. Sessions purchased as Bundles can be carried over for up to eight months.
