What are previous clients saying?
“I am so grateful – beyond words …I will forever be indebted to you…we think of our time like a magical experience. The bad feelings evaporated and life began again for me.”

Many people believe that a one-hour, once per week session, over a longer period of time is the “appropriate dose” of psychotherapy. However, longer and more frequent meetings over a shorter time span may vastly accelerate recovery. Individual Intensive Therapy is intended to promote skill building and rapid symptom relief. The intensive model provides the most dramatic results as we use time to explore concerns, thoughts, and feelings and, importantly, to move on to set goals, and practice life-long skills to combat depression, anxiety, habits/addictions, and transform relationships.
Which types of problems are a good fit for this program?
Common problems include social anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, generalized anxiety or worries, depression, low self-esteem, procrastination, and concerning habits.
Are there any concerns that are not a good fit for this program?
Unfortunately, our program is not set-up to replace crisis services or hospitalization; Persons who are a good fit for this program are eager for help, but are stable, and desire new skills and further symptom relief. Also, we cannot provide medical services; thus we are not able to provide detox services or accept patients who are actively dependent on substances.
How many hours would I expect to participate?
The format is designed to meet your specific needs and address your treatment goals. Our most common model is twelve hours of treatment booked over the course of two weeks. For example, you might have 90-110 minute video-based sessions three times per week spanning two weeks. Patients will also complete appointments for assessment, prior to booking the treatment, and may be offered follow-up sessions.
Where is Feeling Good Institute located? Is this Video-Based Therapy or Face-to-Face?
FGI has physical offices in Mountain View, CA (approximately 45 minutes South of San Francisco) and New York, NY (Upper East Side). There are no in-person services presently offered due to COVID-19. Our clinicians are eager to provide video-based intensive therapy throughout Canada and in these US states: AZ, CA, CO, GA, HI, IL, KY, LA, MD, MI, NC, NJ, NV, NY, OH, PA, TN, TX, UT, WA.
Is this primarily group therapy?
No. The entire course of Intensive Therapy is tailored to your needs and you meet with your provider without other patients involved. If you would benefit from adding group therapy, we can help you find supplemental groups.
What ages are appropriate for Intensive Therapy?
Intensive therapy is usually a good fit for individuals ages 12 and older. Services for adolescents may not be available in all of the US states listed above as ability to work with adolescents varies across our providers.
How do I move forward to find out if this treatment is a good fit for me?
The first step is to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation with a provider in the state or province where the potential patient resides. This phone conversation will allow us to learn about your needs, start the process of determining if an intensive may meet your needs, and explore whether there is a clinician available in your area. The second step, if both parties agree that Intensive Therapy is a good treatment option, is to complete initial paperwork and complete a 80-110 minute assessment appointment. Your assigned clinician may request additional assessment appointments before scheduled the treatment. Families should expect to be involved in the assessment process when arranging an Intensive for an adolescent.
What are the costs?
We encourage interested persons to carefully consider the finances available for this form of treatment. The outcomes can be profound, however the investment is significant. Each clinician sets their own fees. The 15-minute consultation will help match you to an available provider and clarify the fees. The average cost of a 12 hour Intensive, plus assessment and follow-up appointments is $3750 USD. The range is $1500 – $6000. Costs vary depending on the clinician you work with and the total hours scheduled.
Do you accept insurance?
Our clinicians are considered “out-of-network” with insurance companies and have opted out of Medicare. Our experience has been that most insurance companies do not reimburse a large portion of Intensive Therapy services. Please inquire with your insurance company to find out whether they will reimburse multiple hours per day of treatment in an outpatient therapy setting.
