Ozarks Counseling Center, a regional resource for affordable counseling, has been one of Springfield’s best kept secrets for more than 60 years. Due to overwhelming demand, we’ve restructured our service model. We offer focused, goal-oriented counseling for up to 10 appointments. Our purpose in these sessions is to identify and address the issues affecting you, help build coping and communication skills, empower you to solve problems and resolve conflicts, provide you with tools to process grief, change and trauma, and help you forge healthier, more satisfying relationships.
Counseling fees are based on a sliding scale that takes into account gross annual income and household size. Our sliding scale fees range from a low of $10 to a high of $100 per session and $10 to $135 for the initial intake appointment.
We offer anger management on an individual basis. The program includes a $30 intake and then six sessions at $45 each. Anger Management is based on curriculum approved by the courts. Please note that these are individual sessions.
If a fee quoted on the sliding scale is not affordable, we offer a grant program that may further reduce it. We also accept Medicaid. Some fees may be covered by private insurance. Fees for groups vary.
