Money on your mind

We are here to help you. If you'd like more personalized guidance, please let us know at

How much does My Wellbeing cost and what do you include?

The My Wellbeing service is free. We offer you one therapist recommendation at a time to be as anxiety-reducing and intentional as possible. Your therapist offers a free phone consultation so you can gauge your fit together in a low-risk, no-cost way. Should your fit not feel right for any reason, we are happy to facilitate another connection. We will work with you through as many connections as you need to feel safe moving forward. Fun fact: Over 90% of the matches we make stay with their first connection.

Help us learn more about you and your needs; get started with your 5-minute questionnaire.

How much does therapy cost?

The average cost of one session with a private practice psychotherapist in New York City is $275. Therapists in the My Wellbeing community charge on average $175 per session ($100 savings).

Select therapists in the My Wellbeing community also offer sliding scale fees as low as $80-100 per session.

Almost all of the therapists we work with do not accept insurance in-network (learn why here). Out of Network benefits from your insurance plan may save you 50-100% of your session fees, which could still bring your out-of-pocket expenses as low as your co-pay, or lower. Learn more about Out of Network benefits here.

Using Out of Network benefits to lower session fees

You may be eligible to be reimbursed 50-100% of the cost of each session by your insurance, especially if you use a PPO plan, depending on your specific benefits. For example, if the therapist fee is $175, you may only owe $35-$87.

Often, therapists are willing and able to accept your post-reimbursement fee. The therapist will file and manage the Out of Network reimbursement paperwork for you.

Not sure what your benefits are?

That's okay, many of us aren't sure. Begin by calling the number on your insurance card and asking the following questions:

  • What is my Out of Network reimbursement rate for routine behavioral health services?
  • What is my deductible, and how much of my deductible have I already met?

If you would like to use Out of Network benefits, and feel burdened by the process of the paperwork, check out Better. You send Better a picture of your bill, Better sends you 90% of your reimbursement (they charge 10% to handle all of the processing and paperwork with insurance for you). It can be that easy.

Low-fee options

Therapists in the My Wellbeing community offer sliding scales as low as $80 per session. My Wellbeing also partners with community clinics and institutes, where fees can be as low as $35 per session, and most insurances are accepted in-network.
