Jess H. says, "Eli is awesome! I recently went through a bunch of life changes and the stress from that was affecting my relationships (romantic, family, friendships, and work). Eli has helped me to have patience with myself and others, and made suggestions for seemingly small changes to my daily activities that immediately made me feel more grounded & calm. I 100% recommend Eli if you're going through it and can't seem to properly express yourself to anyone else. " Read more

Your couples therapy questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does couples therapy cost?

Couples therapy costs $120 to $250 per session for in-person therapy or $90 to $230 per session for a virtual session. Your location, the therapist's experience, and the number of sessions you're buying also impact the price. Subscription services for online relationship counseling cost $50 to $100 per week.

Since most couples therapy lasts for 12 to 20 sessions, consider buying multiple sessions at once, as many therapists offer a reduced rate on multi-session packages.

Is couples therapy worth it?

Yes, couples therapy is worth it in most cases. Research shows about 75% of couples agree that emotionally focused therapy had a positive impact on their relationship.

To compare, getting a divorce costs $10,000 to $15,000 on average. Besides the high monetary expense, also consider the greater emotional costs of divorce, especially when children are involved.

Is couples therapy covered by insurance?

Most insurance companies do not cover couples therapy unless you or your partner has a medically diagnosed mental illness and the doctor prescribes therapy as part of the treatment.

If you or your partner work for a company that offers employer-sponsored group insurance, some businesses have Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) that often include individual and couples counseling.

How does couples therapy work?

In couples therapy, the therapist first assesses your personalities, needs, and triggers through conversation and often a written questionnaire. After assessing your relationship, the therapist works with you and provides you with tools to practice and improve your communication and conflict resolution skills.

The therapist may assign homework for you and your partner to work on alone or together in between sessions. The therapist may also schedule individual sessions to allow more open communication.

When should you go to couples therapy?

Any couple wanting to improve their relationship and communication could benefit from couples therapy. Emotional distance, infidelity, financial disagreements, lack of sexual intimacy, family challenges, and increased conflicts are all reasons to seek couples therapy.

How do I choose the best couples therapist near me?

When searching for couples therapy near you, be sure to:

  • Ask your primary care physician, trusted friends, or family members for recommendations.
  • Refer to the list of preferred providers if using your company’s Employee Assistance Program coverage.
  • Look for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs) with 2+ years of clinical experience.
  • Confirm their credentials and qualifications.
  • Read their reviews on Thervo, Google, and other online sources.

What questions should I ask when searching for a couples therapist?

Couples therapy is very personal. Consider asking the following question to help you find the best fit for you and your partner:

  • Are you a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)?
  • How long have you been counseling couples?
  • What types of therapy do you specialize in?
  • Have you been successful helping other couples?
  • How long are your sessions?
  • How many sessions should we plan for?
  • What should we expect at our first session?
  • Do you assign homework between sessions?
  • What is your policy for cancellations, late arrivals, and missed appointments?
  • Do you offer a payment plan or sliding scale rates?

Very personable and wants to help. Makes herself available to her patients if needed. Cannot say anything negative about Lynda. Only all positive things and I'm glad to have her as my doctor and friend!

Eli was outstanding. He got straight to the point and dig into the issues that I had. He did not waste time dancing around topics or dragging out sessions. Eli really wants to help people and that came across from the first consultation, which is why I chose him and canceled my other appointments. If you want help Eli, in my opinion is the one to book.

I loved the knowledge Dr. Fred was able to share with me as it pertains to his energy work. I felt educated and informed after my first session and felt empowered moving forward in whatever direction that meant for me. It is clear he is truly a student of his work and will continue his research to help those searching for an enriched life.

I have worked with Dr Z for 12 years. she has helped me reach a point in my life where I can live my life as a mature adult. I have worked through years of self sabotage and loathing. Not understanding or feel like I have any control over my life. She has helped me see and love myself with self compassion and understanding for my humanness and acceptance where I am at.
