In reply to therapist rate hikes, posted by anneke06 on December 31, 2007, at 13:00:17

Unlike a lot of other posters on this subject, my therapist does raise my rate $5.00 each year. Although the increase is small, it is hurtful each year when it happens. The hurt comes from several places. First off, back to what Daisy wrote sort-of, "you mean you want more money to work with me?". Secondly, I do go three times a week --- doesn't that count for something like a quantity discout? So that $5.00, now equals $15.00 per week, $60.00 per month and approximately $700 per year (considering weeks off for our vacations).

And the most hurtful part of the rate increase comes from her participation in a national web site for therapists. It's a place that people can search to find a therapist in their area. Her rate on that site is less than she is charging me. I did mention this to her. She said she would get that changed. When it finally got changed, it is still less than what I am charged.

This is a sore point with me. Having said that, I am a business person and I do understand that her rent and expenses do probably increase each year.
