Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Amarillo, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Amarillo may have flexibility or sliding scales
