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 5 consecutive business days. CREARTH is typically not open Sundays and Mondays and does not schedule appointments these days, unless by special arrangement between client and counselor.
  • Synchronous means: the client and therapist are emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.
  • Non-synchronous means: the client and therapist are not emailing and responding at the same time of day on the same day.

 

Synchronous Email Sessions

Email sessions that are synchronous are timed and billed in the same way that in-person, telephone, and video sessions are timed and billed.

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

Non-Synchronous Email Sessions

Non-Synchronous email sessions are billed according to the total number of email exchanges. The typical therapist response time to a non-synchronous, client-generated email exchange is within 2 to 3 business days during regular business hours, or according to special scheduling arrangements between client and therapist.

 

Clients who wish to have non-synchronous email sessions can choose to pay in advance or to pay at the time of service. Non-synchronous email sessions can be ordered one at a time, in Bundles, or as part of our monthly plans.

 

Sessions purchased as Bundles can be carried over for up to 4 months. Clients can order up to 3 individual Bundles per week—for example, 3 of Bundle A, or 3 of Bundle B, or in combinations

 

Non-Synchronous Rates:

  • One Email Exchange – $30
  • Bundle A – $80 (5 email exchanges)
  • Bundle B – $110 (7 email exchanges)
