Change is difficult and can be scary. It’s our goal to make you as comfortable as possible during your work with us. According to studies, the effectiveness of therapy depends more on the quality of interpersonal rapport between a therapist and client than a therapist’s techniques, education, or approach. It is believed that the relationship between a therapist and client is the most significant predictor of therapeutic success. Since it may take a couple of sessions before you begin to feel comfortable, we encourage you meet with a prospective therapist a few times before deciding whether they are a “right fit” for you.
Before the conclusion of your first session, your therapist should ask you if you wish to return for another session. They may also ask about your experience of your first session together. It is important to share your feelings as openly as possible. If you do not feel a particular therapist is a “good match” for you they will help you in finding another therapist, or refer you to our administration, who will assist you in finding someone more compatible with your needs or wishes. Remember, YOU are in charge. We have included biographies and pictures of each of our providers. Feel free to read through our Therapists page to see if you find someone you feel might be right for you. Please keep in mind that many of our therapists keep specific hours (example: only evenings or weekends) so please keep this in mind when speaking with our administrators. Keep an open mind!
Cost of Therapy
Affordable Mental Health Care
We believe that everyone deserves access to affordable counseling.
In an effort to make our services more accessible, Mind Your Self offers some reduced fee or sliding scale fee options.
The current average cost of therapy per session within the San Antonio ranges between $140 – $300 per appointment. While we cannot guarantee to accommodate all income levels, we will do our best to make counseling as affordable as possible. We also accept many insurance programs (see below).
- Intake / Psychological Assessments (necessary for all therapy) $200
- Session (50 minutes) $125
Standard rates for therapy services are considered “private pay” and those that are covered by an insurance that we do not accept (“Out of Network”). Out of Network clients are responsible for the full rate at the time of service. A Smart Bill/Invoice will be provided for submission to insurance by the client for reimbursement.
- Intake / Psychological Assessments (necessary for all therapy) $100
- Session (50 minutes) $75
Mind Your Self accommodates several sliding scale sessions. These sessions must be pre-approved; acceptance is based on a variety of criteria. ALL sliding scale sessions use Masters level clinicians that are under Supervision for a higher level license. These sessions are meant for those individuals that do not have insurance or choose not to utilize insurance because of a substantial deductible.
