I see a lot of people offering "See a therapist," as advice...?
Which is absolutely fine, but how would one go about doing this? How expensive is it? Does insurance cover it? I will be removed from my parent's insurance once I graduate and leave school (which is only within a matter of a couple of weeks).

I agree with the others and I'll add that even if you don't have insurance coverage, check with the clinic or practice. Many times clinics offer a "sliding-fee scale" based on your income in order to accomodate individuals with less money.
