To put the cost of marriage counseling in perspective, there is nothing you can buy that will give you the same quality of life that a healthy marriage provides. If you and your spouse love each other and meet each other’s important emotional needs, you’ll be able to do without many other things and still be happier in the end. People seem to earn more and save more after their marital problems are solved.
The money you spend to resolve your marital problem is money well spent. Individual as well as marriage and family counseling costs can vary widely from $50 per hour for a degreed, but unlicensed professional to $250 per hour for a senior licensed therapist. Some psychotherapists offer sliding scale fees based on income. Our workshops including PAIRS cost between $16 and $36 per hour. See our fee chart below.
According to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, mental health services provided by marriage and family therapists are cost-effective. Family therapy has been shown to reduce health care use by 21.5%.The AAMFT states that average costs for psychotherapists are typically 60% that of psychiatrists and 80% that of psychologists. Psychoeducation such as PAIRS is considerably less expensive.
