Paid out of pocket for therapy instead of waiting 6-8 weeks between appointments

Published Tuesday, August 16, 2022

I have to wait 6-8 weeks between each therapy appointment. It’s gotten so bad I had to pay out of pocket for mental health care not covered by Kaiser at $100/hour because I can’t wait two months for a mental health emergency.
