> how often do you all go to therapy?

Once a week, every freaking Friday, rain or shine.

> does insurance allow only x number of appointments?

I think my actual insurance only allowed 20(?) visits a year.

> when the # of appts. runs out, what do you do? how do you pay?

I'm lucky enough to live in the same city as a large university teaching hospital that has a psychiatric clinic. I see a fourth year resident and he gives me quite a cut on my fees (only charges $15 a session). However, the resident that I seen before him did not do that. He charged me the full $200 a visit. My insurance DID pay a large amount of it, but that being said, I still owe the clinic a huge amount of money. It's over $1500 at this point and I haven't been able to make a payment in forever. After the first of the year though, that will change. Maybe I'll actually get it paid down. It's a huge guilt trigger.
