How to find a psychologist in NYC

How much do psychologists charge for therapy in NYC?

If your psychologist accepts insurance, you'd only be responsible for the copay, which is usually $20 to $40 per session. If you have a high-deductible plan, expect to pay $175 to $250+ per session until your insurance starts contributing. Similarly, if you’re paying out of pocket, your therapy will cost anywhere from $175 to more than $250 per session.

You can also ask your psychologist if they offer a sliding scale, or reduced fee, to clients with limited financial resources. In NYC, sliding scales can be as low as $100 per session.

Does health insurance cover therapy sessions with a psychologist in NYC?

NYC psychologists accept payment from a variety of insurance plans including Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna and UnitedHealthcare. However, these providers may have long waitlists or few available hours.

You can see a psychologist who isn’t paneled with your insurance, but your out-of-pocket costs will be higher as you’ll only receive partial reimbursement. For details about your out-of-network coverage, contact your plan or search your plan documents for your summary of benefits.

What should I look for in a psychologist in NYC?

All NYC psychologists have a doctoral degree and at least one to two years’ practice under the supervision of an experienced mental health professional. In addition, all psychologists must pass a licensing exam. Many psychologists also pursue specialized training in areas like clinical psychology, child psychology or couples counseling.

Before you start therapy, be sure your psychologist has experience helping clients with concerns like yours. The better your psychologist understands your situation, the more likely it is that your therapy will succeed.

What types of challenges can psychologists help with?

Psychologists are qualified to diagnose and treat a range of mental health issues including anxiety, mood, and psychotic disorders. Most psychologists begin by asking about your thoughts and feelings before trying different evidence-based therapy modalities to help alleviate your symptoms.

Common modalities include CBT, mindfulness practice, and hypnosis. To find the right fit, you may have to experiment with one or more of these techniques.
