Paying for Therapy

Paying for therapy – making the payment decision that’s best for you – is an integral part of the therapy process.  If you are financially secure or have a cadillac corporate health insurance policy the process is somewhat easier: research therapists and see the therapist that best for you, regardless of cost.  For others the decision can be complicated.  You’ll need to balance the many variables that effect dollar cost: standard fees, sliding fees, insurance and duration of therapy.  You’ll also need to balance these dollar restraints with your own therapeutic needs: matching your therapeutic needs with the training and experience of the pool of available therapists.  That’s a lot you can consider.   To read more, just follow the link below.  Or, if you prefer, just contact Russ with the email form at the bottom of this page and begin discussing payment with him.
