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

The CORNERSTONE of my practice of mediation and clinical services is work with couples, though I do treat individuals and families as well. For 26 years I have worked with non- married couples who crave improving their communication, and if desiring marriage getting their relationship off to a great start, with married couples to strengthen their friendships, commitments, relationships, and if ambivalent about their futures, to clarify their directions. A big part of the practice is to mediate settlements for those who have decided to live apart or divorce. I enjoy an using an emotion- centered approach with psychotherapy clients, helping get...

Your counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does counseling cost?

Counseling costs $100 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 $60 per session for the copay.

Online counseling costs $50 to $110 per week through websites that offer a membership plan. Plans on the lower end of the price range are typically limited to support via text or email messaging only, while plans at the higher end of the range include scheduled video sessions with a licensed counselor or therapist.

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?

Reviews for Malden counselors

Recent success stories from people in the Malden area.
Karun D.
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.

My Experience with Karli K’s life coaching was amazing ! Going in I was at a low point in my life. I never knew I needed a life coach until I met her. She is a great listener and really took the time to understand who I was as a person. Something that stood out to me during our sessions that many of my past therapists lacked was the way that she presented advice to me. The advice she gave was specifically for me and pertinent to my story , not advice on what she would do if she were me . Her passion and positive outlook made all of our encounters very comforting for me. Thank you for inspiring me to live a more successful and purposeful life. I truely enjoyed working with such an incredible person like you !
