    Good afternoon,

    I was curious to know if counseling would be covered by benefits?

    Thank you,

    Look for someone to assist my son who is 27 bit has been dealing with the stress of his brothers car accident 14 years ago and the recent suicide of a close friend. He has been dealing with anxiety over both of these issues and other issues.
    He works piece work so is only available outside work hours of 8-5 M-F and doesn’t have the best benefits.

    • Hi Nancy: Thanks for your query. With such limited availability, your son may have to prioritise what he wants most. Some clients work through their lunch break, books appointments during their lunch break, ask for permission to leave work early, book vacation days, and any number of other options, in order to get an available appointment. Making himself available on such a limited basis is going to make it difficult for him to find a therapist. Most therapists will work a sliding scale out for clients who have limited benefits, so he shouldn’t let that discourage him. But the therapist shouldn’t have to work harder than your son to be available for an appointment.

      I hope that helps.

      Dorothy
