our office

Come on in and take a seat

 

You can even kick off your shoes if you'd like—it's not unheard of here! At Abundant Living, we proudly maintain a small office environment, affording our clients with an intimate, personal experience in a casual atmosphere. We hope you'll come early and enjoy some relaxing time for yourself in our waiting room, where we offer hot and cold beverages and a soothing ambiance. Have a cup of coffee or tea and unwind for a moment! And because of our small town location, we take extra measures to protect client confidentiality, offering a private entrance and parking at the rear of our building. 

 
 
 
fees & insurance

fees

 

Fees vary with each therapist. Please contact us for more details. If you're concerned that finances may keep you from getting the support you need, please let us know and we will do our best to work with your specific financial situation.

insurance plans accepted

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield

  • Alliant

We can also work with you as an out of network (OON) provider, and many insurance policies will reimburse a percentage for out-of-network providers. Please check with your insurance provider directly to understand your specific coverage. You will be responsible for paying at the time of service and we will provide you with an invoice that you can submit to your provider for reimbursement. If this is an option that you would like to consider, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss the questions you may need to ask to be fully informed of the coverage provided.

You may also use a Health Savings or Flex Account. Using a pre-tax Flex or Health Savings Account for counseling can save you money and avoid the complications of using insurance. Unlike using your health insurance for counseling, this option does not require that we provide your insurance company with your mental health diagnosis. We are typically able to directly charge credit cards associated with your employer sponsored HRA or HSA (Health Savings Account; Flex Spending Account) type account.

payment

We accept cash, check and credit card, as well as Health Savings and Flex Account cards.

cancellation policy

Please provide 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. If you do not attend your scheduled therapy appointment, or you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.

I'm used to doing things on my own. Does reaching out for help make me weak?

Not at all. Asking for help is one of the strongest decisions you can make, demonstrating a sense of initiative and an ability to self-reflect and identify complex issues. Perhaps this particular problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access the qualities and skills you've relied on in the past. In our work together, we'll help you identify those inner strengths and implement them in your current situation.

Do I have to be a Christian to use your services? If I'm not religious, will you try to "convert" me?

Absolutely not! While we're happy to incorporate Christian beliefs and philosophies into our sessions and find that it is valuable to our Christian clients, being a Christian is by no means a requirement. We treat clients of all faith backgrounds and always respect a client's beliefs. If you're not religious, we will never impose our beliefs on you.

How is this different from pastoral counseling or other Christian counseling services?

There are so many types of counseling available, and there are certainly benefits to each approach! While we are happy to incorporate Christian beliefs into our sessions—which may include praying with a client or referencing scripture, depending on the client's comfort level—we are also Licensed Professional Counselors and use science-based approaches based on our years of education and training. This makes for a unique, hybrid counseling model that is not only holistic, but also highly attuned to each client's needs.

Will I be prescribed medication?

For some clients, medication can be a helpful, and even necessary, treatment option. However, we believe that medication is most effective when used alongside regular therapy sessions. In our work together, we'll explore the root of the issue, dig deep into your behavior, and teach strategies that can help you accomplish your personal and/or relational goals.

What does the 10:10 stand for in your logo?

Great question—and we get asked this one quite a bit! 10:10 is actually a reference to John 10:10, "I have come to give you life in abundance." It's one of Mandi's favorite verses and the inspiration behind the Abundant Living practice name. We feel that it really captures the heart of our practice!
