Why We Charge So Much for Therapy

Unlike many in my field I do hold 2 separate Business degrees. My Bachelors is in 'Retail Management' and served me well for more than 12 years - my second Graduate degree in Healthcare Administration helped more directly to understand the real costs of having a true professional, private practice.   It isn't about just the actual contact with clients that counts, there are thousands of dollars spent well before the first client takes a seat.   

A professional who maintains a strong mental health practice for 20 years quickly discovers that they have to maintain an office along with heating, cooling, water, safety/security, comfort, lighting, parking, snow removal, noise control as well as insurances, educational requirements, licensing and ethical regulations, and cover their own mortgages, student loan debts, and health insurance.
