You may be aware that Catalyss Counseling offers an Affordable Counseling Program, but you may still be wondering, “Can the Affordable Counseling Program meet my needs for therapy?” Or even, “Will these therapists be able to help me?” In short, YES! But let’s talk about why.
Starting therapy can be intimidating. You may be overwhelmed by the cost, the time commitment, or the whole opening-up-to-a-stranger thing. (Don’t worry, I get it!)
If you have never been to therapy before, or it’s been a while, it might seem like there are endless options.
You might be thinking, how could I possibly find the right therapist for me?
Or perhaps you are asking yourself, should I pick a therapist with the most or least expensive rate? Somewhere in the middle? Does the price even have anything to do with my experience?
If you are anything like me, when it comes to decisions like finding a provider, I often find the options too overwhelming and put the decision off. That’s totally fair if you tend to do this too! Whether the decision fatigue applies to you or not, I suggest you read on to see how affordable therapy can meet your needs - for healing and saving your wallet.
Work with Someone Trained in the Latest Research
Since the Affordable Counseling Program is staffed by master’s level interns in counseling and/or social work programs, these professionals are currently learning the top trends and best practices in the field. The student intern therapists are a wealth of knowledge. They are also highly motivated to apply what they’ve learned for the last several years of their graduate program to support your unique journey.
You can expect several benefits to working with someone trained in the latest research. Counseling is an ever-evolving field, which means that we therapists are always learning and growing in the field. A perk of working with a student intern therapist is their current education and training are rooted in today’s research. This means they are applying best practices and diverse perspectives to support you.
Student therapists trained in the latest trends also mean they are holding themselves to the utmost standards of professionalism and accountability in the field, which also benefits you.
Access to High-Quality Therapy at a Lower Cost
In addition, therapists in our Affordable Counseling Program work under supervision from Catalyss Counseling’s licensed professional counselors. This means that the student intern therapists are receiving supervision from a fully licensed therapist who has gone through extra training to become a certified supervisor for student therapists.
The student intern therapists in our Affordable Counseling Program are constantly learning, consulting, and getting feedback to show up for you week after week.
Not to mention, their therapy services are offered at a reduced price. Talk about a win-win!
Flexibility to Meet You Where You Are
You might have a schedule that varies by the week. Sometimes you want to meet with your therapist on your lunch break, while other times that’s the last thing you can imagine doing. Our student therapists are willing to meet you where you are, working with you to schedule appointments on days and times that fit your schedule. Therapists in the Affordable Counseling Program also have availability in the evening to meet your personal needs.
Maybe you appreciate the convenience of virtual meetings, but get sick of sitting on Zoom all day. Or maybe, you just like having options. Well, you’re in luck because our therapists in the Affordable Counseling Program can meet with you virtually and/or in the office.
Ready to Get Started?
Our student therapists are available to meet with you within the week! Since we live in an age where therapy is more normalized than ever before, more people are seeking out therapy for the first time. It is not uncommon to have to wait 2-3 months before getting seen. Therapists in the Affordable Counseling Program often have no waitlist, so you can start therapy right away!
