This website seeks to provide a extensive list of locations that offer affordable (as low as $5/session and typically below $50/session) therapy in New York City, as well as to explain the differences between these places and their approaches to therapy. The website also organizes the available resources by type of clinic or venue, type of therapy, and location to help you narrow down your options.
Starting therapy can be difficult enough! There's no reason that finding a therapist who suits you and you can actually afford should be difficult as well. New York City is filled with many therapists, many of whom do not take insurance or adjust their fees for students and those with limited means. There are, however, also many who do.
Currently training to be a mental health practitioner, I am frequently asked for advice about finding a therapist or encounter those who are struggling to find a therapist. I am continually shocked and upset by how inaccessible the information found on this website is to those who do not know for what they should search. Therefore, I have decided to compile a database of what I know, with the help of some of my colleagues.
This website is by no means a comprehensive list of all available options. It is also a work in progress. I apologize if any of the information is outdated or incorrect; please inform me if you find any of it to be so. I will do my best to keep it as up to date as possible. I also strongly welcome any requests, advice, comments or corrections that anyone may have to my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
