There's nothing wrong with most people, we get stuck at times and need a place to work that out. Coaching can move you forward rather quickly. You bring the problem I'll help you find the solutions.

Your counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

Counseling costs $50 to $250 per session if not covered by insurance, depending on your location, type of counseling, and the counselor's specialty. Prices are on the high end of the range in major metropolitan areas like New York and San Francisco. The average cost of counseling with insurance is $20 to $50 per session for the copay.

Online counseling membership plans cost $40 to $70 per week and typically include scheduled video sessions and/or 24-hour support through texting or online chat.

Marriage counseling costs $120 to $250 per session for in-person therapy or $90 to $230 per session for online therapy.

You can only use your HSA or FSA for counseling if you have a billable diagnosis—such as depression or bipolar disorder—and the therapy is deemed medically necessary. You can't use your HSA or FSA for marriage or family counseling, grief counseling, or therapy for stress management.

Counselors have a master's degree in psychology and are trained and licensed to practice psychotherapy. A counselor may be licensed or certified in a specific area:

  • Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs)
  • Licensed Practicing Counselor (LPC)
  • Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC)
  • Registered Child Therapist RPT)
  • Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)

A counselor can help you navigate challenging life situations, understand your emotions, strengthen your self-esteem, and improve your communication and coping skills. They provide support through difficult times and guide you in making the necessary changes in thinking and behavior to improve your mental and emotional health.

Counselors can help you with a variety of problems:

  • Depression and mood changes
  • Marriage and relationship problems
  • Grief or loss
  • Anxiety, stress, and panic attacks
  • Self-esteem and body image concerns
  • Eating disorders
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anger management
  • Addiction
  • Gender or sexual identity concerns

Counselors are licensed psychologists but not medical doctors, and in most parts of the U.S. they are not allowed to prescribe medication. Only Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, and New Mexico allow counselors to prescribe medication, and counselors in these states must complete additional psychopharmacology training and certification.

In the rest of the U.S., only a medical doctor can prescribe medication. Psychiatrists are medical doctors and can prescribe medication, but they typically do not provide talk therapy or counseling services.

A licensed counselor can give a mental health diagnosis in all states except Indiana and Maine. However, the counselor must refer clients to a psychiatrist or other medical doctor if the condition requires medication. Consult a counselor near you if you have concerns about ADHD, anxiety, depression, autism, bipolar disorder, or other mental health conditions.

When searching for a counselor, it's important to choose one who makes you feel comfortable, safe, and respected. Follow these tips to find the best counselor for you:

  • If you have a specific concern—such as depression, stress, or relationship issues—look for counselors who specialize in that area.
  • Ask your medical provider for recommendations.
  • Read reviews from other clients on Thervo and Google.
  • Confirm the counselor accepts your insurance or offers a sliding-scale rate.
  • Ask about telemedicine and virtual visit options.
  • Schedule an initial consultation to make sure you're happy with the counselor's communication style and empathy.

Ask these questions to help you choose a counselor who will help you achieve the best results:

  • How long have you been practicing, and what are your certifications?
  • What areas of counseling do you specialize in?
  • What is your philosophy as a counselor?
  • What therapeutic approaches do you typically use?
  • What does a typical session look like?
  • Are you more directive or guiding as a counselor?
  • Do you give homework or reading assignments?
  • Do you offer virtual / telemedicine appointments?
  • Do you accept my insurance? Do you bill the insurance company directly?
  • Do you offer sliding-scale rates for clients without insurance?

Hello 👋 Let me make this short and sweet, Basically I did not know what to fully expect when I was walking into this but the end results have blown my mind (in a good way of course)! I am one of those people who are always looking for spiritual guidance and growth. I personally have a Soul Evolution Coach, aside from Zheni, and I also have had sessions with many hypnosis guides ranging from masters who make you quit nicotine, past life regressions, generational healing etc. However, Zheni is the first guide that I met who is a Master NLP hypnotist. It is, hands down, the best thing I have done for myself personally, and I am definitely going to book another session with her ASAP! She got into my subconscious mind and released limitations and beliefs instantly !!! I was still subconsciously holding onto trauma, which explains why I was facing so much resistance when I was trying to move forward with my life. She did not have me explain my trauma, instead she basically took me to the traumatic event in hypnosis and made me release all the negativity without going into too much detail which I thought was genius. Like I said, I am one of those people who have a lot of experience with these things and looking back no one has ever done what she did to me. It took all day and honestly, I feel like a completely brand new person just one week later! If you feel like you are stuck somewhere in your life and you need some kind of guidance or spiritual growth I highly highly recommend to pencil in a session on your calendar with Zheni! Quick tip: Doing a little bit of research into NLP and understanding the science behind it before your session would help. It truly is remarkable and the word “breakthrough” couldn’t describe it any better. Thank you Zheni for changing my life I am so blessed to have crossed paths with you in this lifetime. 🙏 ((P.S: Investing in your future is NEVER a bad idea)). X0X0 Love Always , Dita
