Scheduling a Counseling Appointment
To schedule an appointment please call 240-582-7513 and our Executive Assistant will add you to our calendar. In most cases, you will get an appointment the same week of your call. If this is not the case, then your appointment will be the following week after you first call.
If you have Medicaid insurance, you will then be instructed to give us your insurance information so that we may receive authorization from your insurance provider to see you or another member of your family for counseling session. If you have private insurance, we can schedule an appointment and see you; please note that we are out of network with most private insurances at this time.
We ask all clients to complete an Intake Form which can be found and downloaded from our Forms section on our website. Please complete the Intake Form and bring it with you to your first session. For couples we ask that you each complete a separate Intake Form. Parents, please download the Child Intake Form if you are seeking services for your child/youth.

Rates and Insurance
PACE Consulting accepts insurance for counseling services. We are in network with Maryland Medicaid. For all other private insurance, we are out of network and ask that you check with your insurance company and ask for out of network benefits.
We are credentialed with several Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), please call us to see if we are credentialed with your workplace EAP provider.
We accept self-pay/out-of-pocket payments. Please call us for rates for individual, group, family and couples counseling.
PACE also offers sliding fee scale payment for sessions based on your income level. Please inquire with a PACE staff to see if you qualify for this type of payment.
Your First Session…What to Expect
Congratulations on scheduling your first counseling appointment! You have made a huge first step in taking care of you and/or your family members’ mental and emotional health. Treat the first visit as a “get to know you” session. This is where your counselor will go over your Intake Form, discuss why you are seeking services at this time, go over your personal and medical history and talk about your current symptoms.
Please see counseling as a team effort and come prepared as well to ask the counselor questions, give details and be as open as possible about your feelings and current condition. This information gives the counselor the insight and information they need to assist them in developing the right treatment plan and care for your situation.
