cost/benefit analysis of therapy?

Posted by octopusprime on February 15, 2004, at 20:36:32

hello ladies and gentlemen

i am considering psychotherapy. i have some objectives in mind. i am not depressed enough for medications right now, but i have been in the people to come to me then go away. i basically think i have some bad behaviour patterns that need breaking.

however, my insurance allots $500/year for a psychologist. (i get the feeling that means msw's and others are not covered, but i can check)

there are some other things that would be good for my mental health that cost money: for example, i need to move out of my break-in prone/rodent attractive apartment, i need $900 cash to do this, and it would be good for my mental health (and make me less paranoid)past, and i am getting down again. i need to broaden my social circles, but i'm always telling

so for those of you in therapy, have you performed a cost/benefit analysis? is it better for you than running away to join the circus two weeks a year? would therapy be better than moving, getting a swimming membership, or taking a trip to mexico (which i could also do with my therapy money?)

i'm just soliciting opinions. i'm wondering if it would be a good idea to pay $1000+ out of pocket for therapy, or wait, and make other changes in my life, and hope things go better once i move/go back to school/the spirits align/ etc
