Therapists that understand you.
Our center has many therapists from all backgrounds and identities. We offer a complimentary 20 minute consultation with the therapist you are matched with to make sure you each feel comfortable to begin your therapy journey together.
Whether you are seeking couples counseling, marriage counseling, sex therapy, or individual counseling, we have someone that’s the right fit for you. Our therapists in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Santa Rosa and Marin, Walnut Creek, Palo Alto, Redwood City, and Los Gatos have flexible schedules to meet your needs, and we offer sliding scale therapist with our associate therapists in each location, too!
We suggest you view the therapy process is a weekly, on-going experience for you – or for you and your partner. Most couples stay in therapy for around 3 months, while individuals tend to continue for longer periods of time. We will work with you to find a process that fits your needs, budget, and expectations.
Our fees for couples therapy, marriage counseling, sex therapy, and individual therapy are detailed below according to the area of service. To accommodate different financial needs we offer lower fee services with therapists who are associates. All associates are supervised by experienced licensed therapists and receive direct training from the founder of The Couples Center. They can sometimes offer an additional $10-$30 off their fee for sliding scale based on financial needs.
Your therapist may recommend a longer session and then the fee will be adjusted accordingly, i.e. a 75 minute session in San Francisco is $270. Please note we have senior level therapists with more training and years in practice whose rates are $20 above the standard quoted fees for licensed therapists.
