Anyone who has experienced a traumatic event can potentially develop post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. And sadly, symptoms of PTSD can indeed escalate until they begin interfering with your day to day life. According to the Mayo Clinic, seeking clinical intervention after you begin expressing symptoms of PTSD could be essential in order to alleviate your symptoms and improve your daily functioning. The events most commonly associated with the development of PTSD include but are not limited to:

However, it is important to remember that there is help available if you are experiencing PTSD symptoms, and there are several different therapeutic approaches that have been proven to be quite effective across a wide variety of individuals. The cost of therapy for PTSD can vary widely based on several factors, such as:
One affordable option to combat the negative, potentially life altering effects of PTSD is group therapy. And here at Grouport, we offer affordable, totally online group therapy that is a great option for individuals who are at a high risk of experiencing severe symptoms of COVID-19 and would prefer to seek therapy from the comfort of their own home. Furthermore, engaging in therapy from a familiar location--in this case, your home--may encourage you to open up more than you would if you were in an unfamiliar location, such as a therapist’s office.
Grouport’s services only cost $35 per week, and can be canceled at any time you please. Your card on file will be billed $140 at the beginning of each four week billing cycle, and we will indeed be able to provide you with itemized bills that you can submit to your insurance provider if you would like to seek out-of-network reimbursement. Please keep in mind, however, that the amount you will be reimbursed will depend upon what insurance company and plan you are enrolled in.
Should you choose to enroll in our services, you will first receive a twenty minute one on one consultation with a licensed therapist; during this session, the therapist will get to know you so that they can best match you with one of our therapy groups. This meeting will also be conducted over Zoom, and you will receive a private Zoom link 24 hours prior to the call. You will then be matched with a therapy group that will meet for an hour on the same day and time each week.
Our therapy groups are capped at twelve individuals, and we will continue to populate a therapy group until it reaches its maximum. Furthermore, your privacy is of the utmost importance to us here at Grouport: you may choose to engage with your therapy group using a nickname if you like, and all of our software is HIPAA compliant. If you choose to use a nickname, you can set this via your Zoom settings; only your therapist will know your government name. Rest assured, however, that your group leader will make sure to begin each therapy session by establishing firm rules of confidentiality.
