Costs of Psychotherapy

The cost of psychotherapy varies considerably from one therapist to another. The cost can exceed well over $100 per session if the client is seeing a highly educated and experienced therapist such as a psychiatrist. However, if you are covered by health insurance, most of this cost will be paid for by your health insurance provider.
