Good luck at the new place with your therapist.
A couple years ago, I also visited a clinic that specialized in anxiety disorders called, Anxiety Treatment Center. The people were friendly, but I was surprised how little they knew about CBT and treating clients, in general. For one, the door to the therapist's office was thin, and I could overhear the entire conversation between the therapist and the previous client, as I sat with my magazines in the waiting room. So much for confidentiality.
I hope your treatment center wasn't as bad as mine!
Surprisingly, I had better luck with a knowledgable therapist in a rural town. I guess one thing I learned, is that you never know where you'll find the gems. If one turns out bad, keep searching until you find a good one.

Money is just one factor of many. Holding onto clients might fill an emotional void for the therapist, or possibly boost their own fraile/damaged ego. A therapist once admitted this to me, herself. But this is just FYI, not to mention, highly cynical speculation, on my part. I don't know your therapist and can't judge him, like you can.
