I didn’t think I could afford psychodynamic therapy, but there’s a program called Open Path Collective, and the rates are about half the market rate. All you need to do is pay a $49 lifetime membership fee to have access to their list of therapists. I already chose a therapist in my area who has weekend and evening hours and who specializes in trauma, PTSD and attachment issues. This is real psychodynamic therapy that gets to the roots of the problems, not just behavioral treatment, which is usually all that’s available when you’re limited on funds.
I feel really good about this decision, because for months I’ve known I really needed it. I can’t do this on my own anymore. I’m actually excited about it. As soon as I get my Member ID in my email, I can set up my first appointment.
