Your company’s EAP should have a number of free introductory sessions. Also, finding someone in network through your insurer may help. Sounds like you’re taking on a lot. Hang in there.

^^ dear partner, please make it a priority at your firm (setting an example for the industry), to have more affordable options for mental healthcare. Your people are worth it!

like

Maybe seek out support groups/group therapy as it may be more cost effective

like

The EAP now covers 5 sessions free. Also, check out the resources site for a new AbleTo program where you get 8 sessions with a therapist and a life coach, and it might be fully covered depending on your insurance.

Any local universities? I went and got therapy for $20 a session from a PHD candidate. I know it sounds like ultra low budget - but it helped

There might be sliding scale counseling in your area! The waitlists are usually pretty long, but if you can demonstrate that your budget’s tight, they will work with you on fees

like

My therapy is in network so I only pay a few dollars each time.

I admire all you’re taking on! You may ask if anyone takes pro bono clients or allies you to pay in a sliding scale, if you can’t find someone in network

Second what A1 said - there’s actually a lot of resources at Accenture

Get a therapist recently out of school. Rates are lower

I’m tracking down an article that’s been on my mind but I can’t find it for the life of me. It’s about domestic expectations of men and women, and how often men will express eagerness for domestic and work equality, but stop short of actually doing more domestic work. Domestic things still need to get done, and women fill that gap. It’s a lot of small things, but when you zoom out the collective impact shows massive impact. Death by 1000 paper cuts.
