Counseling( also known as therapy ) is “talk therapy”, an approach to psychotherapy that involves no use of therapeutic drugs, and is focused on establishing a high level of collaboration between a professional counselor/ therapist and yourself.
The collaboration aims at addressing your immediate psychological needs, as well as examining and correcting erroneous self-held beliefs, negative thought patters, and harmful relationship patterns that are distressing you or causing problems in one of the major areas of life (Home, work, and school).

Marriage counseling is exactly as it sounds. It is an evidence-based method that involves a certified professional relationship counselor guiding you and your partner to get the most out of your partnership and to resolve conflict and discord. Sometimes referred to as couples therapy or relationship counseling, it uses psychotherapy, which opens up the avenues in communication, intimacy, comfort and understanding in a marriage, enabling both partners to improve and strengthen their bond.
Many get confused about the difference between a counselor and a psychiatrist. The main difference is that a psychiatrist is a medical doctor trained in counseling. As such, they see your concerns through a medical model lens, which stipulates that concerns stem from a biological problem, and thus the solution is to administer medicine to correct the imbalance.
In contrast, Counselors and psychotherapists view you from a “strength-based approach”, where we collaborate with you to discover the resilience and strength you have, and leverage that to empower you to effectively address your challenges.
At Naya Clinics our approach to therapy draws from the humanistic school of psychotherapy and the existential school of psychotherapy to create our own unique approach Positive Existential Therapy PET developed by our founder Sam Nabil
What Is A Life Coach?
A life coach is a person who helps you understand what your personal goals are and assists you to create a plan to achieve those goals.
Life coaches do this by providing you with Life coaching service. This could be either a short-term or a long-term, but it typically involves an action-based plan of action.
A life coach is not always a healthcare provider or a medical professional, though some life coaches go through training programs and unofficial certifications. At Naya Clinics, all our life coaches are ALSO licensed therapists, giving you the best of both worlds.

HOW MUCH IS YOUR FEE FOR MARRIAGE COUNSELING/THEARPY/Life COACHING Services?
We use a sliding scale in the practice to determine the counseling fee based of the combined annual income of the household (your income plus the income of your significant other).
When you request an appointment with our therapists or coaches using our online portal, our secure and HIPPA compliant client portal will automatically send you a full intake packet with all the information you will need including the sliding scale, as well as the information you will need to fill out before your first appointment with your counselor, therapist or coach.
Your information is only to secure your appointment, and you can go back to the portal at any time – until 48 hours before- to cancel your therapy appointment at no charge.
For your convenience, we have 4 different pricing options for our clients to suit every need and budget.
1) Our clinical counseling interns see clients for 70$/ individual session and 90$ for couples’ and marriage counseling sessions.

We provide all clients with receipts and or super bills to file with their insurance companies for our Relationship Counseling, Family Counseling and Individual Counseling Services. Life Coaching Services are typically not billable by most insurance providers.
Most of our clients who chose to file an out of network claim for our services get reimbursed a substantial portion of our fee by their insurance. We do not work with insurance directly.
WHY ARE YOUR SERVICES OUT OF NETWORK?
Working with insurance in most cases means we must diagnose you with a mental health illness. Most of the clients we see do not have a mental health illness and are rather dealing with stress or a curve ball that life threw their way in their relationships or at work.
We therefore find it very counterproductive that insurance companies would require us to provide a mental health diagnosis. This is especially troubling because your diagnosis would stay on your medical record for ever.
Insurance companies also often insist on establishing time limits for counseling in most cases.
We believe a diagnosis and how much you want to stay in marriage counseling or therapy should be your choice, and not the choice of your insurance company.
We have therefore chosen to operate out of network and leave you with the choice. You can apply for out of network reimbursements or chose to keep your work with us private
When you have made your out of pocket payment to us, you will automatically receive a bill/invoice in your email.
For easy and convenient reimbursement for your out of network insurance claim, we recommend you use the getbetter app on your phone.
My colleagues and myself practice out of 5 different locations in the Cincinnati area and suburbs as well as Northern Kentucky. We also operate out of 4 locations in the Denver Colorado area.
In most cases, our clients are never more than a 10 t0 15 minutes drive away from one of our locations.
