Danelle C. says, "I never knew there was a difference in the types of counseling. It wan't until I experienced the difference of having a certified Restoring-Self-Cohesion therapist at Crawford Clinics that I finally got to the things below the surface that I couldn't get to in traditional talk counseling. Don't get me wrong, my past counselors were great! But they didn't know how to help me identify and resolve the unconscious dynamics causing my depression issues. Now, I am finally seeing a difference in myself and I'm not having to use tons of willpower to try to work against myself. I feel like my life is coming into order in a cool way that I can't put into words. I'm grateful for Crawford Clinics for helping me get here!" Read more

Your Therapy and Counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does therapy cost?

Therapy costs $100 to $250 per session if not covered by insurance, depending on the therapist's experience or specialty, therapy type, and your location. Prices are on the high end of the range in major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles and New York. The average cost of therapy with insurance is $20 to $60 per session for the copay.

Online therapy costs $50 to $110 per week and typically includes support through texting, phone, or online chat. Some plans include one or two live video sessions per week with a licensed therapist.

Can therapists prescribe medication?

Therapists are licensed psychologists or counselors but are not medical doctors, and in most states in the U.S. they are not allowed to prescribe medication. Only five states allow licensed psychologists to prescribe medication—Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, and New Mexico—and psychologists 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 attend medical school and can prescribe medication, but they typically do not provide talk therapy or counseling services.

Can a therapist diagnose ADHD, autism, depression, or other conditions?

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

Can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA) for therapy?

You can use your HSA or FSA for therapy 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.

Can I see my therapist while traveling?

You can see your therapist while traveling only if your therapist is licensed or legally permitted to practice in the state you're physically located in at the time of the session. Not all states allow interstate therapy practice. Check with your therapist before you leave to confirm they can provide telehealth services across state lines.

How often should I go to therapy?

Most therapists recommend starting with one session per week. After your first session, your therapist will work with you to decide on a schedule that will most benefit you. Some issues require only a few sessions, while others require more extensive treatment.

How can I choose the best therapist near me?

When seeking therapy or mental health care, follow these tips to help you find the right therapist for you:

First consider the type of therapy you'd prefer. Common therapy styles and modalities include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy
  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Humanistic therapy
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy

Choose therapists who specialize in treating your condition. Then:

  • Ask for recommendations from your medical provider.
  • Read reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Confirm the therapist is licensed to practice in your area.
  • Meet with the therapist for an initial session to make sure their personality and treatment style is a good fit for you.

What questions should I ask therapists?

Ask these questions to help you find a therapist who is the best fit for you:

  • How long have you been practicing, and what are your certifications?
  • What therapy style or modalities do you practice?
  • What is your philosophy as a therapist?
  • What does a typical therapy session look like?
  • Are you more directive or guiding as a counselor?
  • Do you give homework or reading assignments?
  • How do you determine success in therapy?
  • What is your success rate in treating past clients with this issue?
  • Will you see me if I run into problems between sessions?

Eric knows how to get to the roots of trauma. I was skeptical about counseling because I've seen people stay in counseling for years and never get better. My wife complained enough about how my PTSD is affecting her that I figured I'd try counseling but honestly didn't think it would help much. And now, only a few months, my wife is even commenting on my improvements. I am able to communicate through things that I used to storm off and go into a rage. I am realizing my triggers and learning how to work through them instead of shutting everyone out. The dreams and annoying intrusive thoughts have started to become less frequent which is helping me to be able to focus better at work. I'm starting to enjoy being home with my family because things are so overwhelming as they used to be. I'm grateful for Eric and the Crawford Clinics team because we had our daughter start to see another therapist here and it is nice to know that she is seeing the best.

This lady is just wonderful!!! I feel very free and able to be myself. She allows me to share who I am in a safe, encouraging environment. I would highly recommend to anyone from the most sensitive cases to just those necessary check-ups.
