Family therapy costs can vary widely as they depend on several contributing factors.

Good Therapy provides examples of some of the factors that can affect the price of family therapy, which include but are not limited to the following:

  • The therapist’s training: highly trained and very experienced family therapists typically charge more.
  • Location of therapy: family therapists located in large metropolitan areas and other regions with high costs of living will charge more to cover their operating costs.
  • Reputation: well-known therapists, in high demand often charge more for their services.
  • Duration of a therapy session: the longer the session is, the greater the fee.
  • Specialization: Family therapy is likely to be more expensive when the therapist is an expert in a highly specialized field.

Family therapy can help a family work through a difficult period (e.g., death of a loved one, major transition, mental health illness of a family member, etc.). Through family therapy, family members have an emotionally safe environment to address specific issues that may be affecting the functioning and overall health of the family unit. The typical duration of a family therapy session lasts about fifty minutes long. Family therapy can range from $65 to $250 per session and in some cases more. It is important to note that there is no across the board, standard fee regarding the cost of family therapy.


Some family therapists will accept insurance as a form of payment, and others will not. Insurance companies are different, as are their respective tiered insurance plans they offer to members. While the exact amount is variable, insurance companies are required to provide full or partial coverage when it comes to family therapy, provided one of the participating family members has a diagnosed illness. Some insurance plans provide extensive in-network and out-of-network mental health coverage with little to no out-of-pocket cost to members, while others may only offer specified coverage for services rendered by in-network providers. Some insurance plans limit the amount of money a plan will cover and/ or the frequency of sessions allotted for family therapy.
