Individual, couples, child/parent, and family counseling as well as school consultation and in-home therapy is provided.  A cognitive-behavioral approach with a Christian perspective is used for most therapy.  It is based on the belief that our thoughts affect our feelings and behaviors.  The therapist’s role in therapy is to listen, encourage, and teach you. Your role is to express concerns, learn and then to implement that learning.  Counseling sessions are very much like a “coaching’ session. The real hard work is often done in between the sessions.  The goal is that eventually you will earn to apply the techniques yourself and become your own coach.  Counseling with children is viewed as a collaborative approach between the child, therapist, parents and significant caregivers/teachers and therefore includes significant others in the therapy process.


Session fees are as follows:

  • Initial Session (80 minutes)       $80.00
  • Individual session (50 minutes) $60.00
  • Family/Couple (80 minutes)       $80.00

**We offer a $25.00 discount for sessions scheduled between 8am and 2pm on Monday-Friday.  Our counseling services are a ministry of Three Strands Christian church, which not only enables us to charge a lower full-fee rate than most therapists, but also allows us to offer limited reduced fee sessions for those with financial hardships.  We will accept cash or checks, payment is due at each session.  We do not accept insurance payments.  There is a $30 charge for missed appointments if not cancelled in advance.


All services are provided by Kathleen Decker, LISW-CP.  Mrs. Decker received her masters degree in Social Work in 1995 from the University of TN.  She has been licensed for independent practice for over 10 years and has helped many individuals, families and children in mental health centers, school systems as well as private practice.


It is important to us- and even more important for you- that our services are a good fit for you.  So that we (and you) can decide if our services will be helpful to you before committing to an initial session, we provide a free 15 minute phone consultation.  You may call or e-mail our office today to set it up.  For more detailed information about the counseling services please see the Client information page.
