$300 does seem awfully high-- but I don't blame you for really wanting to see him-- if he feels right. My analyst once claimed that he charged that. I somehow thought that was what he'd like to charge in his dreams-- rather than what he charged. Maybe he has a few very rich clients-- there are people like that in this city-- but I can't believe he'd want charge that to most people. Some people do of course want or need money-- and it's not just liking money-- although if he does, it's just I guess what he thinks he needs, or should get. And if he has kids, college and grad school are insanely expensive-- and so is rent in some cities, etc. Analysts also don't get job-related health insurance. A combination of needing and being able to charge certain people that fee may leave a few analysts in the position to charge it. I'd chalk it up to necessity. I know my T has twins-- and maybe yours has expenses that just can't be put aside. We really can't know what's driving his fee.

Nonetheless, it's really bad luck if you came upon him when he didn't have flexibility. Still-- even though it's difficult--and may feel too picky-- to go on looking--- it's important to stick with it, rather than make a great compromise, when it's your life on the line. There is someone out there--- I"m sure you'll find him or her.
