Who We Are
We are Sunny Path Counseling, a child and family counseling center in Johnson City, TN. We specialize in helping children, young adults, and families work through struggles using creative approaches.
We want to work with parents who want to support their child in doing well. We give parents the resources and support they need to help their child. The content in our Parents’ Corner Blog will help you understand what your child is trying to tell you behind the behaviors and learn therapeutic techniques to try at home. It’s also a great way to keep the therapeutic progress going at home!
Discover how Sunny Path Counseling has helped children and families like yours improve and become stronger.
Here's The Plan
Free Phone Consultation
Get to Know Us
Schedule your free phone consultation to let us know what your needs are. This is a great chance for you to get a feel for us, too!
60 Minute Intake Session
Schedule an Intake Session
At the intake session, you’ll meet your child’s therapist and get to tell them about the issues your child is facing. You’ll also let us know about any concerning behaviors you’re seeing in your child. You and the therapist will establish the direction for treatment.
45 Minute Therapy Sessions
Individual or Family Therapy Sessions
45-50 minute weekly sessions will be conducted. Sessions could be individual, or with the child and parent, depending on the type of therapy that was agreed upon at the Intake session.
Parent consultations with younger children are conducted every 4th or 5th session. This is a way for the therapist and parent to stay on the same page regarding the child’s therapeutic progress.
Once the therapeutic goals have been achieved, and the child is better able to regulate emotions, termination will begin. Because termination is essentially a separation from therapist and child, termination should be worked towards and not abrupt. Your therapist will establish goals and begin discussing termination early on in treatment.
First, be sure to sign up for your free 15 minute phone consultation so we can meet and be sure we are a good fit for you and your child. Then, we will work with you during a 60 minute intake session to tailor a treatment plan to meet your child’s needs. Once we have a treatment plan with mutually agreed upon goals, we will set up weekly sessions lasting 45-50 minutes each. Every fourth session or so, we will meet individually with you, the parent, to track treatment progress and any progress or concerns you’ve seen at home.
We know parents play an important role in the treatment of a child, and sometimes it takes a change in the structure of the home. We want to keep parents informed, and we will give you access to therapeutic tips and tools you can use at home with your child.
We want to be sure your child receives the right services, and if for some reason we aren’t the best fit for your child, we will help refer you to someone who can help.
We are mainly considered an Out of Network provider. Meaning, we only accept cash payments for sessions. At this time, we are only in network with Cigna and BCBS.
If you opt to use your insurance out of network benefits, we would be happy to give you a monthly statement to send to your insurance company, so they can reimburse you (for licensed therapists only). We also can give you information for a company that will do the work for you! We recommend that you also check your Out of Network benefits to ensure coverage.
If you do not have out of network benefits or use your insurance, and are experiencing a financial hardship, please inquire about our reduced fee application. There are a limited amount of sliding scale options we can offer. Learn more about our fees & services here.
