Dinah,
I have had a HUGE variation in the amounts paid to different psychs- from a $15 co-pay for my therapist to an in- network psychologist who also charged the co-pay but would bill me $20 for every inter-session phone call (lasting an average of 15 minutes) to my out of network (and fairly famous) psychiatrist who charges $200/ hour with unlimited phone calls and e-mails that are all promptly answered. Quite frankly the psychologist who charged extra for phone calls annoyed me for that reason (even though he was helpful) and I dropped him. I have never negotiated fees, but I never negotiate anything (even cars). If your therp told you he charges what he charges all his clients, then I would believe him. I think you're feeling insecure right now and maybe that's really what the issue is- not the actual money. What do you think?
take care, judy
