Free marriage counseling can be hard to find, but there are some options to consider. First, check with your local university to find out if they offer degree programs in psychology or psychiatry. Chances are, if they offer a degree they also have a clinic where you may see a psychology student therapist for free or reduced charge. They will be under the supervision of a professional, so don’t worry. You also may check with your insurance carrier. Most insurance plans now cover counseling as a preventative service. Lastly, many therapists offer a sliding scale fee schedule that helps people with financial hardship to afford marriage counseling.
