Question by WorkingGirl: Average rate for Psychotherapy hours for psych grad student?
Since I am a clinical psychology graduate student, I have to get psychotherapy hours as a graduation requirement. I have been asking therapists for a discounted rate but they have offered 85 to 100 dollars. I have heard of other therapists offering therapy hours to graduate students for 35 dollars but i am not able to find them! …So i am wondering what is the norm? Is 85-100 dollars on the high side? I am looking for services in San Diego.

Have you offered to volunteer your time at one of their office? I would think of something slick to say to get your hours in for free. $ 85-100 is pretty damn pricey for doing nothing.
