What if I can’t afford the membership fee?

At Thriveworks, we strive to be the absolute best place for people to get counseling. While we’re not the absolute lowest cost option, we’re not even close to the most expensive; often within a stone’s throw of any of our offices are providers who don’t accept insurance of any kind, charge over $200 per session, and don’t provide a fraction of the benefits or services our clients receive. So that we can continue to provide premium care, our clients support our unique practice by paying a membership fee. We believe this is a small cost, and an exceptional value, for clients who use our service. However, we do not make our practice inaccessible to clients who are unable or unwilling to pay. If this is you, kindly ask when booking your session and a waiver will be provided to you.

What if I’m not satisfied with the care I receive?

First, we want to try to make it right! If it’s not a good fit with your provider, we can connect you with a new provider who is a good fit. If we’re not meeting your needs from a customer service perspective, we want to fix that too. Also, Thriveworks offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on the membership fee portion of your investment. If your first session doesn’t meet your needs, you have 7 days to contact us for a full refund.

What is the cost per session for individual, couples, and family therapy?

The cost per session for any type of therapy is dependent on your payment method, your insurance plan, your location, and additional factors. Our scheduling specialists are happy to provide you with all the details you need to make the best decisions for you and your family. 

What does the membership fee cover? What membership benefits can I look forward to?

The membership benefits at Thriveworks are substantial. When you sign up for a Thriveworks membership, your counselor is available to you between sessions by phone and email; you receive password-protected access to our app Therapy Buddy to help you make the most of your sessions; and you can enjoy text support through our Success Navigator to ensure that you are satisfied with your experience. Additionally, we know that life can sneak up on you, which is why we offer a super flexible 23.5-hour cancellation policy. Learn more here.

Does Thriveworks have a satisfaction guarantee?

Yes, we do! So that clients can choose Thriveworks with confidence, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee when it comes to your membership fee. If your experience at Thriveworks is less than stellar, we’ll work to make it right. If we can’t, we’ll refund your initial membership fee (up to one week after your first session).
