Finding a therapist for chronic illness in NYC

How much does therapy for chronic illness cost in NYC?

Therapy for chronic illness can cost anywhere from $175 to $250+ per session if you're paying out-of-pocket. But if you can find a therapist who accepts your insurance, you'd only be responsible for the copay – typically $20 to $40 per visit. If you have a high-deductible plan, you can expect to pay the full out-of-pocket amount until your insurance kicks in.

Where are most therapists for chronic illness located?

NYC therapists who specialize in the treatment of chronic illness are concentrated in Manhattan with the majority seeing patients in the Midtown area. here are also a number of offices on the Upper East and West Sides, as well as in Greenwich Village, SoHo, and the Financial District.

Some qualified therapists who can help with chronic illness have offices in Brooklyn and Queens.

What should I look for in a therapist for chronic illness?

Seek a therapist whom you trust, feel comfortable opening up to, and who treats chronic illness and its emotional effects with a variety of techniques like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

CBT addresses symptoms by developing stress management and positive thinking skills. DBT is similar, but it emphasizes mindfulness practice and learning how to accept and live with illness. Both have been shown to be effective in treating chronic illness, as well as the anxiety, depression, and feelings of alienation that may accompany it.
