Clinic Policy

Enhancing Your Counseling Experience

At Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting, we believe in excellence. We want you to experience the best care possible. The following is a statement of our Clinic Policy, designed to enhance your experience. This policy applies to all our counseling services. Insurance, and the Good Faith Estimate portions of our clinic policy do not apply to consulting services. All other policies apply to both counseling and consulting services.

Client Registration

After scheduling your initial appointment, your therapist will send you an individual link to an online portal. It is important to complete your paperwork before you arrive to your first appointment. If you have questions regarding your paperwork, please reach out to your individual therapist.

Client Reminders

Our therapists use automated reminders as a courtesy. However, you are responsible for writing down your appointment time and making it to the appointment, regardless of receiving the reminder. If the you do not receive a reminder for a scheduled appointment, it is recommended to reach out to your individual therapist. If you do not wish to receive automated reminders, you can inform your individual therapist or change the settings on your online portal.

Missed Appointments

A missed appointment is a scheduled appointment in which you do not show and do not provide at least 24-hour notice prior to your scheduled appointment time. You will be responsible for the entirety of the session cost for a missed appointment unless otherwise determined by the therapist. You will not be charged for a missed appointment if it is a weather-related cancellation.

Late Arrival to Appointments

Because counseling is based on 45-60 minute time slots, it is important to arrive on time to your appointment. It is unlikely your therapist will be able to allow you to make up the time you missed if you are late to your appointment. It is also possible clients using insurance may be required to pay a fee for late arrivals. Please let your therapist know if you are running late to your appointment.

Waiting Room Etiquette

We do not have a receptionist at Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting, which means you will make yourself comfortable in the waiting room until your therapist comes out to get you for your appointment. Your therapist will work to be on time to each appointment, but please text or call your individual therapist if he or she is not in the waiting room fifteen minutes after your scheduled appointment. Please be respectful of others working in session by remaining quiet in the waiting room while you enjoy complimentary refreshments.


We love children at Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting; however, children are not to be left unattended in any part of our facilities. It is the parent or guardian’s responsibility to keep all children quiet while others are receiving services. The parent or guardian is also responsible for any damage done to Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting’s property or property owned by other’s in the building in which we lease. Nursing infants are always welcome to join moms in session, but mom is responsible for taking care of baby and understanding the distractions possible in the session. We recommend using childcare whenever possible.

Payment Procedures

Therapists accept cash, check, credit card, or HSA/FSA cards. Therapists are responsible for their own billing and may choose to charge an additional fee to use a card. If choosing to pay with cash, exact change may be required. A $50.00 fee will be charged for all checks returned due to insufficient funds. Your therapist will also offer an Auto Pay option on their client portal. Payment is expected at the time of each session. The therapist reserves the right to terminate treatment until payment is made.

Sickness Policy

Each of our therapists are seeing clients in-person and virtually. Our office does not require vaccinations or masks to enter our office. However, if you or a member of your household is sick, please notify your therapist and your appointment will be moved to virtual or rescheduled for the safety of the therapists and other clients.
It is also important for you to be aware that Katie MacDougall, LPC has a chronic illness that may impact her availability and ability to conduct sessions under certain circumstances. The following aims to inform you of these potential limitations and to seek your understanding and cooperation.

  1. Appointment Cancellations: Due to her chronic illness, there might be times when Katie MacDougall, LPC needs to cancel or reschedule appointments on short notice. This is to ensure their well-being and ability to provide effective therapy over the long-term.
  2. Limited Availability: Katie MacDougall's chronic illness might result in her having limited availability for sessions. She will strive to communicate her availability clearly and work with you to find suitable appointment times. However, if your schedule changes for some reason, she may not be able to accommodate that change.
  3. Immunocompromised Status: Due to being immunocompromised, Katie MacDougall, LPC cannot be around sickness of any kind. If you are feeling unwell, please inform her as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment or schedule via Telehealth. (There will not be a cancelation fee for sickness-related cancelations.)
  4. Supplemental Oxygen: At times Katie MacDougall, LPC will be using supplemental oxygen during session. As a result, no smoking or vaping of any kind can be used in session and it is appreciated if perfumes, aerosol sprays, and/or other strongly scented items are not used immediately before or during session.

Insurance Coverage

None of our therapists at Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting currently accept insurance. Your therapist may give you a statement of reimbursement (superbill) to submit to your insurance. However, there is no guarantee your insurance will reimburse you. By scheduling with a therapist that does not take your insurance, you are choosing to use self-pay in the event that your health insurance does not reimburse you for treatment. The responsibility of your insurance reimbursing you is not the responsibility of the therapist.

Good Faith Estimate

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 1-877-751-2972

Animal-Assisted Therapy

A therapist in the office that is not part of Revive Christian Counseling and Consulting has a dog he uses to incorporate in his psychotherapy work. Numerous studies show that interacting with animals helps people lower their blood pressure, increases engagement, and reduces anxiety/depression. This content outlines the risks and rules needed to ensure your health and safety (as well as the dog's) as we work together. Alexander is currently the only dog and he is primarily working with a sister group called Covenant Counseling and Coaching.

Although working with canines in a therapeutic setting has many benefits, there are risks associated with the intervention. Because we use a live animal, it is important to note in advance the policies and procedures needed to maximize the intervention and ensure safety.

  • Please report any fear of dogs to your therapist prior to coming in the office so the proper precautionary measures can be taken, if any.
  • Although Alexander will remain current on his vaccinations and health screenings, there is always a slight risk of zoonotic disease transmission (i.e., sharing of diseases between animal and humans) when working with an animal.
  • Although every effort will be made to cut and file Alexander’s nails, scratching may occur while physically interacting with the dog.
  • Please be aware that Alexander sometimes plays or shows affection by licking or nibbling, which may result in oral contact from the dog. Although, therapists and coaches will make every effort to monitor and control this, there is a risk for light biting and licking.
  • Dogs use their body to communicate and may brush against or lean into a person. Other body language such as tail wagging or body wiggling may also occur.
  • Although every effort will be made to cut and file Alexander’s nails, scratching may occur while physically interacting with the dog.
  • Clients will promptly report all accidents and/or injuries incurred while in the office to his or her therapist or coach. Clients may also contact Covenant Counseling and Coaching directly at 405-820-4965.
  • Should injury occur, your therapist will work with Covenant Counseling and Coaching to respond accordingly and take proper action to help the client get the appropriate medical care.
  • Do not feed Alexander or give him anything unapproved by your therapist.
  • Wash your hands before and after handling Alexander.

Court Appearances

Clients are discouraged from having the therapist subpoenaed. Though the client's attorney, who initiates the subpoena request is responsible for the court appearance and testimony fees, it does not mean that the therapist's testimony will be solely in the client's favor. The Therapist will only testify their professional opinion (if required) and to the facts required of the case. The therapist will only respond to a subpoena from a judge.

It is a requirement that you are provided those fees prior to your first therapy session.

The following fees apply for court appearances:

Preparation time (including submission of records) $400/hour
  • Phone calls $400/hour
  • Depositions $400/hour
Email or written letters $400/hour
Time required in giving testimony $400/hour
  • Travel time per 15 miles $100 

  • Time away from office due to depositions or testimony $400/hour
  • Filing a document with the court $400 (Plus court fees)
  • The minimum charge for a court appearance $5000

Any and all legal fees and costs incurred by the therapist as a result of the legal action.

Please Note: A non-refundable retainer of $1500 is due in advance. If a subpoena or notice to meet attorney(s) is received without a minimum of 14 days’ notice notice there will be an additional $450 “express” charge. If the case is reset with notice of less than 72 business-hours, the client will be charged $1,000 (in addition to the retainer of $1500).

All fees are doubled if the therapist has to postpone or interrupt plans to go out of town.
