According to Therapists: Not Understanding the Costs

The cost of therapy varies greatly based on your insurance coverage and your therapist’s financial practices. Be sure to do your research ahead of time so you aren’t hit with a surprise bill.

“When you first consult or meet with a therapist, make sure that you understand what your financial situation looks like so you can ensure that the therapist makes sense financially for you,”. ”It’s the worst feeling to vibe well with someone only to realize that working with them isn’t feasible.”

If you’re on a budget, also look into free consultations. Many independent therapists offer free 15- to 20-minute phone conversations to see if there’s a good fit.

      Yes, research is so important when it comes to finding a therapist. When it comes to cost it is worth asking the following questions ‘Do you offer a sliding scale?”, “Do you offer any type of discounts?” “Do you accept my insurance?” ,” Will you help me navigate insurance reimbursement?”

      Count is all for joy! I often tell clients therapy isn’t forever, but it’s a beautiful short term investment.. That will teach one  self management skills, and to truly understand your worth and your purposes.
