How Much Does Therapy Cost?
Good Therapy is Priceless…
Churning in a pit of anxiety, depression, or general unhappiness takes an enormous toll on your life. Therapy does cost money, however there may be a bigger cost to NOT getting good therapy when you need it.
Imagine weeks, months, or years of staying in worry, sadness, or failing relationships — versus having the love, happiness and success you want. You're not shopping for a couch here — you're trying to build a good life.
Good therapy is valuable. We determine value by what we get out of something — either pleasure or utility. We seek to fill our aching hearts with stuff. We can put a price on shoes, on cars, on vacations, but their true value to us is the happiness they bring us. But you know there is nothing that you can purchase with money that will create more than a fleeting ripple in your emotions.
Authentic happiness comes from our ability to have good relationships, meaning in our lives, feeling good about ourselves, and from feeling like we are in command of our destiny. You can't buy any of those things. But investing in good therapy can help you create them.
With the possible exceptions of your health and your family, your happiness is worth more than anything. You deserve to be happy. You've made investments in your education, in your home, and in your career hoping that they would bring you happiness. Now it's time to invest in yourself.
Good Therapy is Priceless… But It's Also Affordable
Growing Self was founded on the premise that everyone deserves access to high quality personal growth experiences. We strive to make therapy with us as affordable as it is meaningful and effective. We keep our standard fees low. Plus, most of the therapists in our practice are able to meet with you on a sliding scale basis. Master's level therapists charge between $60 – $105 per session. Doctoral level therapists charge between $80- $150 per session. Sliding scale rates are determined from your annual household income and size of your family, and are dependent on practitioner availability. Furthermore, by using effective, evidence based therapy, we ensure that your therapy will be meaningful and valuable to you. Our strategies have been proven by research to help people feel better and make positive changes, and we use short-term therapy models. On average our clients get what they need out of therapy in 8-16 sessions.
Yes, You Can Use Your Insurance Benefits
We can help you get reimbursed for your therapy sessions, if your insurance policy covers behavioral healthcare with out-of-network providers. We also accept payments from Flexible Healthcare Savings Accounts.
