AFFORDABLE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT
Recently a colleague shared with me her revamped fee structure for her private counseling practice. Instead of the typical one-size-fits-all model she uses a tiered structure based on income. The more you make, the more you pay.
As a small business owner with only one employee, me, there is a lot on my plate from taxes to treatment. I do everything. Anything I can automate I do to decrease things from slipping through the cracks. My fees were one of those items on autopilot.
Since starting my private practice years ago my fees haven’t changed. I charge the typical, private practice rate for my area. But anyone who is paying attention realizes America is in the midst of a mental health crisis.
It seems like every week there is a news story about people not being able to find a mental health counselor or not being able to afford one. As therapists we can’t solve every problem but we can definitely help this one by making services more affordable to more people.
