I am assuming that you are in the USA, and therefore I am not up to date with how much that is in Australian dollars. But to give you an idea of what I would have to pay here to see a Cognitive Psychologist is about AUS$125 per 50 mins. I don't know what it is for a Psychiatrist, as most people here see Psychologists. I am very, very fortunate as I can see the Psychologist at university for 1hr. absolutely FREE !!! I was so shocked to find out that I could go as long and howevermany times and not pay! So you may want to try something like that. Also in Australia if you are a low income earner then the government will either subsidise it or it's free. If I go to the public hospital for anything then I don't have to pay a cent either no matter how long I stay.
I don't mean to get you down, but I was shocked that you have to have insurance or pay heaps over there. Sometimes we really don't know how good we've got it, and I am very grateful for the opportunities.
