Counseling & School Psychology Clinics

Box Lab Fees for Services

Services are available to faculty, staff, and community clients at the Box Lab on a sliding fee scale. The sliding fee scale is based on a person's income and number of individuals in the session. Occasionally, clinicians may choose to provide pro bono (without payment or compensation) counseling services to clients who are unable to pay. The Box Lab accepts cash or checks only and currently does NOT accept credit cards, bank cards, health insurance, or any other third party payments, Medicaid or Medicare.

Counseling Services

Counseling services include individual, couples and group counseling services. Fees for sessions with a clinician are set on a sliding scale ranging from $10 to $60 per 50-minute session. This sliding fee scale is based on a person's income. Individual and couples pay one flat rate. Group members vary with services. Any proposed deviations from the fees listed below must be approved by the Box Lab Director. MSU students (currently enrolled) who are referred by MSU Student Counseling Services are not charged for counseling services.

Individual/Couples
Income under $25,000: $10.00
$25,000 - 34,000: $20.00
$35,000 - 39,000: $35.00
$40,000 - 44,000: $45.00
$45,000 and up: $60.00

School Psychology Services

School Psychology assessment and intervention fees are set on a sliding scale ranging from $10 to $60 per 50-minute session. Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and feeding related services are set on a sliding scale ranging from $25 - $80 per 50-minute session. This sliding fee scale is based on a person's income, and number of dependents. Fees are based upon a household of four people. If a household is made up of more than four people, clinicians may be able to deduct an additional $5 per extra dependant from the fee.

Fees for testing depend upon the kinds of testing performed, as well as the number of hours of testing required. Charges for assessments include cost of initial interviews, test protocols, administration, scoring, report writing time, and formal face-to-face interpretation of results to parent or employing agency. When providing services for comprehensive assessments, fifty percent (50%) of the assessment fee, or an amount agreeable with the Lab Director, is due following the Behavior Intake. The remainder of the assessment fee is due at the time of final interpretive session; however, partial payment of the remaining balance will be accepted prior to the final session. Any proposed deviations from the above fees must be approved by the School Psychology Director of Clinical Services. A more detailed list of fees can be found on the School Psychology page on this website.
