Couples counseling costs vary widely, in accordance with the therapist’s qualifications, experience, and where they practice. Many therapists offer a sliding scale fee schedule, so that couples with financial problems can still get help. Generally speaking, couples counseling costs about the same as other types of therapy, and will often be covered by insurance or Employee Assistance Plans (EAPs). It’s not a bad idea to shop around for a couples counselor as you would for any other service. Call around and get some information before you try out two or three for a session. You’ll get a sense for how you like them while they learn more about your marriage.
