Counseling at The Barnabas Center
Through individual and couple counseling sessions, our licensed counselors come alongside adolescents to adults in the midst of struggles. Witnessing God use brokenness and heartache to move people toward redemption and healing is one of our greatest privileges.
Bringing struggles to light through the safety of confidential, counselor-facilitated groups is often an integral step toward transformation. Groups that have been offered include:
- Sexual betrayal
- Childhood abuse
- Sexual addiction

The Barnabas Center is not a preferred provider for any particular insurance company nor are we equipped to file insurance claims for you. It is the client’s responsibility to check with their individual insurance company to see what their policy covers. If you receive insurance benefits, you will still be expected to pay for each session at the time of your appointment.
Your counselor can provide a form at your request that supplies the information your insurance company will need for you to file a claim on your own. Please refer to your individual counselor’s disclosure statement for complete details regarding our insurance procedures.
Payment for counseling services is expected at the beginning of each session. We accept cash, check or credit/debit cards. We are unable to make insurance claims for you, but will be happy to provide (at your request) a form that supplies the information your insurance company will need when you file a claim. If you receive insurance benefits, you will still be expected to pay for each session as it occurs.
Scholarships are available upon request and will be granted, as available, by considering your household’s annual gross income and any extenuating circumstances.

A Reply to a Scholarship Request is generally given within two business days.Questions regarding the scholarship process for Richmond should be directed to Michelle Conrad or call 804-741-2333.
