Services We Provide
NorthStar Center focuses on your total well being.  Our services cover
bereavement, trauma, stress, anxiety, sexuality, self-esteem, abuse, anger management, illness,
depression, relationships among many other issues.  But counseling is not about giving you advise.  It is a
process which enables you to reflect upon your experience, and to find the skills and resources to put you
back in control of your life.

The therapy process gives you the opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with a qualified
professional.  You will gain a clearer understanding of what is happening to you, and we will help you to take
on a new responsibility of your own life, choices and decisions.

Confidentiality

At NorthStar Center we realize that having a secure, confidential place to talk about our
problems is one of the most important aspects of counseling.  Your confidentiality is important
to us.  There may be extenuating circumstances where your information can be released and
these will be clearly explained to you at the time of your initial visit.  As a safeguard, before any
of your information is released to anyone, a "Consent to Release Clinical Information" form
must be signed.  We take protecting your confidentiality very seriously.



Financial

NorthStar Center participates with most insurances.  If you have insurance, your policy may
pay for part or all of our services.  We will submit the insurance claims on your behalf.  Please
bring insurance identification numbers with you on your first visit.  You are responsible for the
payment of insurance co-pays at the time of service.  You will be responsible for any balance
for service not covered by your insurance company.  Payment plans may be arranged through
our financial department.

We accept Medicare and Most Michigan Medicaid.

We accept Visa and Master card and have a 5% discount for cash paid at the time of service.
