Am I paying too much for therapy?

I found a CBT doctor here in NYC, Dr. Fader, and he charges $300 per session with no sliding scale. My insurance, United Healthcare, covers 70% after I hit my $500 deductible. So after hitting that I would be paying $90 out of pocket. Is this a typical amount to pay w/insurance? I'm asking because I can always look around, but this doctor is supposed to be very good and if it's a typical price I might as well stay with him. Thoughts?

Therapist reccomendation in metro Chicago

Can someone please suggest a cognitive behavioral therapist in Chicago that they have found to be helpful? I tried talk therapy once with a non CBT person and found it cliched and unhelpful, but I suspect I really should go seek assistance. I have the usual bento box of depression and anxiety, male 30s/40s. Unemployed (not the source of depression anxiety, but certainly not helping), so bonus for sliding scale. Bonus for Oak Park/River Forest/ Forest Park.

Can a reserved, somewhat shy person be a good therapist?

For much of my life I dealt with rather severe depression and anxiety, which I've recently overcome with nearly 3 years of therapy. I'm 24 years old, trying to find a meaningful career that's more than just a paycheck. At this point, all I want to do is be a therapist. I want to help others the way that I've been helped. However, another issue I've been working to overcome is crippling social anxiety. It's gotten much better; I hardly consider myself shy anymore. Still, though, I'm not sure if I have the warm, trust-inspiring personality a therapist should have. Could I be a successful therapist if I'm far quieter and more reserved than the norm? I do love people and want to help, but sometimes I might not come across that way. Can a shy person be a good therapist?

Any recommendations for a good counselor/therapist in DC? I searched previous threads for this and wasn't able to find a match (besides the Women's Center, which doesn't work, for a variety of reasons). Preferences would be: takes Aetna or otherwise affordable and LCSW but am really pretty open. Thanks much!

Scientist seeks scientific shrink

I'm a scientist and wish my therapist were too, because I'm having trouble getting across to him what the research community's norms are and how I'm failing to meet them. How can I make the best of this situation, given that switching therapists, and especially trying to find an [ex-]scientist therapist, would be nontrivial?

Can I change my emotional reactivity without even trying?

Virtually all of my past relationships have had huge amounts of drama, a lot of which I have unintentionally encouraged. I have a tendency to pair up with emotionally withholding men, feel wounded and neglected, and then lash out verbally and emotionally in response. This has been my pattern for almost 20 years, yet now in my current relationship, I haven’t experienced this at all. I feel calm, collected, and content. Yet I haven’t made any conscious decisions to act differently - I just find myself behaving this way without trying. I am really happy about feeling so stable for a change, but it also seems too good to be true. Is it possible for a change like this to be legitimate and lasting? [more inside]

Multiple Therapists: Okay or Outlandish?

I recently asked a relationship question, and came to realize that the main problem was actually my debilitating anxiety and the fact that I need to sort that out before being able to seriously wrestle with my relationship. In one week, I met with 2 different therapists who are very different in their styles, and I have an appointment set up with a psychiatrist for next week (my primary care doctor recommended I see an actual psychopharmacologist.) I am very serious about getting help now that I realize I have been wasting so much time denying the severity of my problems and the genuine abuse I grew up with. My question is, can I see two or even three doctors about these issues? My main fear is getting only one or two perspectives on my problems, and I think I can trust the process more if I feel like I have a diverse set of views, perspectives, and mental frames. Is that outlandish or within the realm of normal behavior? [more inside]
