How Much Does Therapy Cost?

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.

Genuine, Warm, and Friendly

As a relationship counselor, life coach and therapist, it is my goal to help you become unstuck, deepen your connections with others, and more understanding and accepting of yourself. I do this through a very collaborative approach that puts you in charge of the process. Those I have worked with in the past have described me as someone who understood where they were coming from and made them feel comfortable from the very first session. They have referred to me as a relaxed, easy to talk to person with a calm and disarming personality. I strive to ensure that each of my clients feels incredibly valued in all of my sessions and my hope is that you will feel the same if we work together.

In my work with individuals, I help clients address issues with anxiety, depression, aimlessness, confusion, grief, adjustment concerns, phase of life issues, and overall emotional well-being. In my work with couples, I help clients navigate general communication concerns, issues with infidelity, grief and loss, divorce, remarriage and separation transitions, general relationship discord, and parenting issues. I also enjoy working with families, particularly when there transition tensions, grief issues, adjustment concerns, or emotional regulation issues present for a child or adolescent. I typically use a blend of solution-focused, narrative, cognitive-behavioral, and emotionally-focused approaches in this work.

If you and/or your loved ones work with me, you can trust that the work we do will be done together. I will never tell you what to do, but I will walk alongside you as we create solutions together. I believe that people are far more equipped than they generally give themselves credit for, and that it is my job to bring a new perspective to the conversation to help shake loose some of the things that might have gotten stuck for you along the way. At the end of our time together, my hope is that you can reflect on the journey and feel proud of all the hard work you did to reach your goal!
