I have had therapy sessions, not marital counseling, and with my insurance, my copay was 30.  I would not worry about slighting them if they operate in this way, pay as you are able.

If we did not have insurance coverage to see our therapist the cost would be $115 for a 1 hr session.

Ours is $60 for a 90 minute couples session. Or $40 for an hour long single person session.

I don’t do marriage therapy just normal ones and if I did not have insurance I would pay $325 an hour but my insurance co-pay is $70.  And let me tell you it is worth every penny!!

My work pays for some clients to go through counseling and I think the average of the MFT’s locally is $80-$90 an hour, but if $50 is more comfortable for you, I agree that they set it up that way so you can receive the services you need even if the typical cost is outside your reach. So just pay what you can.

I’m applying soon to grad school to be an MFT 🙂 I want to see how much to charge…kidding!! I really have no idea.

When I went to see someone, insurance covered a certain # of sessions and I had to pay a copay of $19. If I needed more sessions, I would be approved for more sessions and then still pay the $19. If I wasn’t approved, I would have to pay out of pocket and I think it was somewhere near $100/session. yikes!

I think donation wise, around $50 seems fair.

We pay $60 whether it’s one or both of us going, we go to a licenced family therapist and our insurance doesn’t cover any of it. If it’s all on donations I would give $40 a session I think.

For our marriage counseling it’s $100/hr session. Our insurance only covers individual and we are out of her income bracket to get a reduced rate.

My SO and I see an MFT… she has a sliding scale fee and we’re on the lower end of the pay scale so we pay $60/hr. It still seems like a lot to me, but we don’t have much soooo :/

I’m not sure sure how much mine would cost without insurance but my copay is only $30.

I’ve never used a MFT before, but teen LK’s ADHD psychiatrist is $150 per session. i would imagine a MFT, at something approximating a LCSW level of training, would be in the $90-100 range, so their $85 suggestion seems reasonable.
