How to get the most out of counseling:
- If planning to use insurance to pay for services, check with your insurance carrier for a list of in-network providers. Make sure you know what your co-pay and deductible are so that you are comfortable with the cost of services.
- If you don't have insurance and cannot afford to pay a therapist's established fee, look for a non-profit organization that has a sliding scale fee schedule.
- Review available therapists' profiles on various platforms to obtain information about them.
- Look for language and content on their profiles that feels "right" for you.
- Check the location and hours available: are they convenient for you?
- Plan to attend 5-8 sessions; otherwise, you are limiting your ability to create lasting change.
