Luke V. says, "100% A++++++ At a high level. I had a wonderful experience. Before: I had a number of zoom meetings the month before my planned visit with Courtni that helped me prepare but her guide and readings were excellent. I loved the books(audio) that were required, and the overall different areas of preparation helped me be successful. Changing my diet was hard but that paid off during my journey. Day One: I flew in mid-afternoon and took the train into her area then taxied to my hotel. Simple and straightforward, plus the hotel ended being very close to Courtni. I am now a regular texter with Courtni and I am feeling a closeness because of how open, mindful and thorough everything has been since beginning. We planned to meet at 5pm(ish) for a few hours' day one. Day one night was more for cleansing and preparing the body/mind for the journey on day two. I meet Courtni and we are like two old/new friends with open dialog on life, experiences and the next day and a half. All good vibes and feelings from walking through the door. The Kambo medicine process was given about 8pm that night and was interesting. Courtni was thorough on setting my expectations and that all we were really doing was getting me ready for tomorrow. Courtni applied the Kambo and drove me back to my hotel and we planned to start around 11am the next morning. Day 2: Courtni picks me up at11:30 and we head into town to see what is going on. Huntington NY is a cool vibrant place with a lot of shopping and great places to eat. We drive around and down to a water spot then find a fantastic breakfast place. I’m not to eat much so I have an açaí berry bowl which was lovely. Courtni got a crepe that was gigantic, and we laughed about it throughout the day and weekend. After that, we went back to her house and sort of hung out. She was talking through the journey stages and making me aware of things that could come up. The plan was for around 7pm ish, I would start with some capsules and then possibly take another amount every two hours. Seven o’clock comes and we take a walk and talk about our lives but broken up in 13 year portions. Courtni and I are pretty close now and very open. I feel like we are friends. We sort of take a long walk and I end up a bit sweaty. It was good to talk about our pasts and remember things not thought of in years. We get back to the house and it’s probably 8+ now. We are sitting in a room and she sets the mood with music, some sage burning and candles. She gives me six capsules. Courtni also warns again that the medicine could make me sick and brings a bucket close. Two hours go by and no effects. She pours me a Dixie cup worth of medicine and I drink it. It’s not pleasant and something like a barky porter beer that’s been sitting in the sun. Two more hours go by and still no effects. She gives me another Dixie cup of a different kind. She warns me that some people don’t journey for different reasons. After 30 minutes I feel the medicine coming and I ask to take the music and go into a quiet room. I am able to journey now once my eyes are closed. If I open them, it almost stops everything. As soon as I close them I am off. It’s magical and fast. I’m a dragon and I also played games of chess. I really kept thinking of my brother who was having health issues again. I think of past lovers and intimate times. More dragons and dark but fun visions. Courtni brings me more medicine. 3am I purged hard but there was nothing in my stomach. I feel great and strong with focus. I kept going back to my brother and worrying about him and how I would fix him. Throughout the night I would meditate off of dead ends and could guide myself to better things. Chess games kept jumping in my head and it sort of pissed me off. I sort of slept somewhere around 5 and woke up around 7:30 when Courtni and I talked through the visions. I have been integrating this experience in and feel like the medicine was good, but I also feel like my head was not quite ready. I feel better than I have in ten years but that’s also because I have been healthy and cleared out some negativity that was in my life. All and all, it was a wonderful experience and I think it would be great for anyone who can prepare and is ready. I hope this was not too much writing and you are doing well." Read more

Christine O. says, " I want to thank Abriete so very much! Her love and guidance greatly helped in pulling me out of an almost six year very dark depression. I was so lost and no longer felt I had a purpose in life. She helped me navigate the darkness and bring me back to the light. She also taught me that boundaries are my right and that taking care of me first was essential. I followed her advice and my life started to change for the better very quickly. If I ever find I need a pick me up, she will be the first person I reach out to. I cannot thank her enough! " Read more

Your counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does counseling cost?

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.

Can you use an HSA or FSA for counseling?

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.

What are the types of counselors?

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)

What does a counselor do?

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

Can counselors prescribe medication?

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.

Can counselors diagnose ADHD, autism, or other mental health conditions?

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.

How can I choose the best counselor near me?

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.

What questions should I ask counselors?

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?

Working with Courtni Starheart changed the trajectory of my life path. Doing Courtni Starheart retreats multiple times I uncovered deeper truths and layers about myself. Every time I finished a retreat I felt lighter and upgraded to a better version of myself. It takes more than one time to uncover those layers and heal. I recommend diving deep into the amazing healing retreats with Courtni Starheart.

I met Abriete Medore a little over a year ago, and in that time I have found her to be open, caring, non-judgemental and perceptive. During this period I have been in a search for a new, truer identity and in my contacts with Abriete I have found that she has been able to hold for me that space, that image of my truer Self in a way that helped me to believe in it more strongly and to learn to accept it as real. She has such an open-hearted approach to relationships, it feels like she makes herself vulnerable in a positive way that helps those she relates with to find that tender space within themselves, in order to better explore and heal that which needs healing.
