How Much Does Therapy Cost?
For folks who decide to engage in face-to-face counseling services (or online counseling services), we encourage you to commit to at least 4 sessions of therapy before making any decisions about quitting treatment. This is because it takes a substantial amount of time for change to happen and for your therapist to get to know you and develop a plan to help you work towards your own sense of freedom. We highly recommend 8-12 sessions for full benefit of the therapy process. Many of the evidence-based therapy treatments we use request that folks remain in treatment for 12 sessions to achieve maximum results. One of the most important factors that contribute to effective change is the relationship you have with your therapist. We do our best to connect with our clients and make you feel comfortable during this process. If for any reason, you do not feel your therapist is the best fit for you let us know and we will gladly connect you with one of our other amazing counselors. A common question when inquiring about counseling is how much does therapy cost?
So, How Much is Therapy?
Fees: Fees vary by clinician and can range from $100-$180. Please call for more information. Payments for sessions are due at the end of each session.
Insurance: We are in network with Tricare and Triwest/VA Choice. If you have insurance outside of these options, we can assist in contacting your insurance to verify any out of network benefits you might have. We can also provide you a superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement if you would like. Some insurance companies will reimburse all or part of the costs associated with therapy depending on your plan. It is ultimately the client’s responsibility to confirm any insurance benefits with their insurance company prior to treatment. We are happy to assist in this process but cannot make any guarantees of quoted benefits.
Crisis Resources: At Freedom Within Center we offer therapeutic counseling services to our clients, typically on a weekly basis. It is important to know that we are not a crisis center. If you or someone you know is having a crisis it is advised to call 9-1-1 if it is a life-threatening emergency. If it is a mental health emergency, you can contact the San Diego Access and Crisis Line at 1-888-724-7240. Veterans can also contact the Veteran’s crisis line at 1-800-273-8255.
