Starting 1/1/2018, Tricare benefits will be managed by HealthNet Federal Services (HNFS).  We have made the difficult decision not to contract with HNFS for TRICARE.

However, we have to providers who are willing to work with TRICARE as non-contracted "Non-Network Providers".  This means that we may be able to accept TRICARE to help fund therapy, but it may result in a higher cost share for the TRICARE member.  We encourage TRICARE members to contact your TRICARE representative to find out what the costs may be for counseling with Non-Network Providers.   For more information on TRICARE benefits for clients seeing Doug Chandler, CLICK HERE.

We apologize, but CCNPS is currently NOT a provider for Medicare.  We hope this will change in the coming weeks.  Until that time, we are unable to accept Medicare payments.  If you are new to us, and are seeking counseling as a Medicare recipient, you may contact us about the possibility of obtaining financial assistance in the interim.  Current Medicare clients should discuss the costs with your provider (John Ortmeyer, or Doug Chandler).

Rising Strong™ 8 -week Group Starts July 12!

Rising Strong™ is our newest group offering.  It is led by Terie Clement, who also brought us The Daring Way™, recently.  Check out this great program.

The Rising Strong™ group focuses on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Most of us experience falling as disappointment, hurt, failure and heartbreak. Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, this group helps you get back up, live a more wholehearted and satisfying life, and own your stories of struggle so you can write daring new endings.
