Ann G. says, "Ann Gates Middleton CEO at Brit Am Enterprises I have known Rich Prim for many years. I have survived some really bad times with Rich's help, advice and of course his coaching. He has helped me so many times. He get’s me back on track when I decide against his advice to "go it alone". Rich helped me understand that I had to exercise and make meditating a habitual practice in my life. He never lost patience with me; no lectures, Just sage advice. It has now been about 3 years since we have worked closely together, but the knowledge that he is always there for me gives me great strength. I am now happily married and successful again. I owe my life success to Rich, he really gave me the coaching and encouragement I needed in a way that I could accept and understand. Anyone that has the opportunity to work with Rich Prim should grab it with both hands. Just listen to him and follow his lead. I believe he is wise beyond his years with an understanding that I have never found in anybody else." Read more

We know without a doubt that MPS has been instrumental in helping us have a very happy, healthy, and thriving marriage. Each time we attend a session we leave feeling equipped to navigate the love work in our marriage because of the tools we are given. We received homework to complete for the next session, which encourages and enables us to grow as a couple. Three years later we still work with MPS and will continue because of the inherent value that is added to our lives." Read more

James T. says, "I've spent quite a while now trying to figure out how to write a review which adequately encompasses how strongly I feel about Troy as a person and the work he does - it's hard to articulate! I have been seeing Troy now for going on 5 years and I can honestly say that he has saved my life. He has helped me navigate the most difficult challenges in my life and taught me how to have an in depth, loving and meaningful relationship with myself. Most importantly I have learned how to manage and not identify so strongly with my emotions which has developed into a profound sense of personal sanctuary, serenity, and happiness. Troy has a unique method of providing therapy and advice which is different from other therapists I have seen in the past. He sits and listens. He takes notes. He tries to empathize and understand exactly what your story is. Troy is not the type of therapist where you walk into his office and walk out an hour later with enlightenment that he gained from a text book in grad school and dropped on you to solve your particular issue. That wouldn't work anyway, for anyone, even if he did. Its a slow process which requires a lot of effort, patience, and working through difficult emotions. But if you're seeking therapy or coaching seriously to change and improve your life that's exactly the type of situation you should be looking for. There was a time relatively early on when I was seeing Troy where some painful and traumatic events came up and were being discussed. As I explained my feelings and the situation in general, Troy took notes and listened like he does, except this time he was so moved that he got emotional. That's happened several times during our sessions. Troy is too humble to admit it but he is an extremely talented vocalist, a successful businessman and has a host of other talents. He's doing this because he genuinely cares about helping people, and he is extremely passionate about it. That's extremely rare to find in any capacity in my experience. Troy I wish you all the success in the world. I will continue to see you as my therapist as long as you're seeing clients. Thank you for everything." Read more

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?

Elizabeth T. Successful Realtor ​ After complaining to a colleague about the countless hours I had spent with therapists, counselors, psychologists, group meetings and self-help books over the last two years of my life I was referred to a Life Coach named Rich Prim. I could at this point in my life recognize major issues that were causing me problems, however, I struggled to change them. I knew I was not happy, yet I truly did not know how to be happy. I had lots of people telling me what to do, however, when I even tried to take their advice I was not able to do any of it successfully. I did not believe they understood what my personal struggle and situation was like. How could they possibly understand me, if I did not understand myself and why I was the way I was? I recognized I could change my actions every day and become a robot, but it would never last and my feelings inside did not match those actions. I had read enough to identify my problems but none of the therapists, counselors, psychologists, group meetings or self-help books changed how I felt about my situation or offered any solutions that I would even consider a possibility in my life. That is until I met with Rich Prim. Rich had an approach that was far different than any therapists, counselors or psychologists I had ever met with. In 4 visits with Rich I had come farther in my personal journey, and was able to understand more about myself than I had in all the years with the traditional approaches I used to try to learn how to change my life. I was used to being told what to do -and for me that does not work and would never last even when I really tried. I was able to figure out that even if I truly wanted to change my life for the better, which I did, I cannot just do what I am told. I have to understand, in my own mind, why I should make a change and I have to believe this is right for me. Instead of just telling me what to do, Rich was able to help me uncover, understand and identify why and how my brain works, and direct me to thoughts, habits, beliefs I had no idea were in the way of getting me to my end result…changing. I discovered that I am in essence a lazy human and I created habits and beliefs early on in my life that are so ingrained in me that changing them would be as difficult as convincing my brain that grass is purple, not actually green. Many people might say that it is the “Life Coach” approach that has helped me. I would strongly argue that it was a combination of Life Coach and Rich Prim. It took someone willing to put in the extra effort and actually listen beyond the words I was saying, this person for me was Rich Prim. He did not offer me the answers, but even better, he showed me how to find them for myself, which naturally brought about change in my life. When my perspective changed my actions just naturally changed. I highly recommend Rich Prim to anyone looking for direction or change in their life, even if they don’t know what direction that is...especially if they do not know what direction that is.

My experiences with MPS has been great! I have learned life-long coping skills that are beneficial for me personally and professionally. The chronic stress that I once suffered has also improved because of Stephen. Stephen is an awesome therapist and Joanna is extremely communicative and professional. She always ensures that my appointments are set and convenient. I recommend MPS to anyone that suffers from anxiety and stress.

I am the person I am today because of the work that I’ve done with Troy Gremillion. I went to him over eight years ago with a vague sense of unhappiness in my primary relationships and have gained greater insight and self-assurance than I ever imagined possible. I went to other therapists before, and they helped me to successfully manage different situations I was facing at the time. With Troy, however, I forged a truly healing working-relationship that provided the foundation I needed to transform myself into a more grounded, confident self, able to face (imperfectly) whatever inevitable challenges arise. It is because of Troy’s skillfulness, gentleness, consistency, and not to mention hilariousness, that I have been able to do that. He has done the work himself, and it shows. Inspired by the help I received from Troy, I made a career change and am now a therapist for others. I try to pay forward what I have been given by providing the same steadiness, understanding, gentle challenges, and good humor that he has and continues to provide for me. I absolutely cannot recommend him enough.
