I originally was going to a LPC for $120 and just wasn’t getting what I needed to address the things going on in my life. $180/session insurance doesn’t cover but I use my HSA, now with an LCSW - Finding a good therapist/switching after months of trying with one was one of the best decisions I’ve made last year.

Man. I wasted time last year dealing with a therapist that couldn’t help me dig deeper. My current therapist told be after 3-4 sessions we will know if we are a good fit for each other.

LICSW, RYT, $180, but with insurance it’s $36.

I’ve had three at different life stages / in different cities. All were PhDs or PsyDs. Going rate for each was 185 - 250/session. The first was before business school when I had no money and my therapist charged me only 50/hr as a low bono. In consulting I’ve had Aetna and after reimbursement it’s come out to ~50/session anyway

There is definitely no correlation between credentials and fees unless you start to see a psychiatrist. I've seen PhDs to MSW and they all charge about the same with a standard deviation of about $30/hour. You should find the best therapist who 1) you feel comfortable with. If there is any hesitation about that person find someone else 2) whose style fits what you want. Personally, I am a big proponent of cognitive behavioral therapy so I look for that

1st. Let me say thank you for your insight. A lot of ppl need to hear this. Pricing:That’s pretty much what I was trying to see. Mainly out of curiosity because I have seen a difference my therapist (PsyD) charges $175. I had a LCSW last year and she charged $80. In my search, I noticed that LPCs and LCSWs charge less than PHDs and PsyDs but another friend I have said her therapist (LCSW) charges $180 per session. Maybe years of experience plays a factor. Maybe area. Maybe school attended. Type of therapy.I was curious and since I don’t have a lot of friends in therapy I couldn’t ask anyone else so I took my question to fishbowl. Years back when I started therapy I wasn’t aware of therapy types. My first therapist utilized CBT (which I didn’t know at the time) however,in my college years my therapist utilized a Psychodynamic approach. Today, my therapist integrates motivational interviewing, psychodynamic,and CBT. At each point in my life that I have done therapy, I feel fortunate to have had the appropriate approach needed for that time in my life but it def took trial and error. Like you said it boils down to what you need. Sometimes trying different therapists helps you get to that point.

LMFT at $200/hr. Aetna chips in. Cigna doesn’t. $200/hr is the going rate for therapy in CA based on my research (PsyD to LMFT).

I dont think it matters what their credentials are (I have seen various therapists with various credentials) but it *does* matter what style they have an issue and does it fit your needs/style I have paid $40 copay on $200/session

Go with what fits your needs. To me, it’s more important that they have experience addressing or extensively researching topics that relate to my concerns - family, relationships, grief. But if I needed someone more equipped to address anxiety or something else, I’d go elsewhere. I found Psychology Today’s search engine helpful, in defining and finding someone to match my criteria.

Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community?

It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
