I love this site for the most part. It's nice to be able to talk to someone when you're feeling like your all alone. When your feeling like no one cares. There is always a "Listener" to connect with 24/7...
However when I tried to talk to a professional therapist I was told it's $150.00 per month. Which wouldn't be bad if I had that kind of money. However I live on a fixed income of less than $600 per month. After I pay my bills I have very little left for these kinds of things.
It would be helpful if they would take insurance for the therapist, but I was told that they do NOT take medical insurance. With the state of things in today's world that to me makes no sense. Over 2/3 of our population is out of work and living on very fixed incomes. We are all over stressed and I'm sure there are a lot of people like myself who really NEED the help of a professional.
I personally have been searching for a therapist for over 9 months and all local people within 2 hours of were I live are not accepting new patients. I've looked for person 2 person visits or telemedicine visits with absolutely no luck.
