Couples Therapy

  • TIRP couples therapists are bound by explicit, established principles of ethical professional practice
  • TIRP couples therapists are either senior students or graduates who have additional training in relational work with couples
  • TIRP couples therapists will be in required supervision as part of their practicum or voluntary supervision as part of ongoing professional development
  • Your couples therapist will protect your name and all identifying information, respecting your right to confidentiality
  • Your couples therapist will offer an initial $50 session, followed by a negotiated sliding scale fee between $50 and $80 

The following TIRP senior students and graduates offer couples therapy for a fee of between $50 and $80 per session. 

You may contact these couples therapists directly with a brief phone or email message. They reserve a certain number of spaces in their schedules for couples who can't afford full-fee therapy. Please indicate that you found the therapist's name on this site and that you are looking for low-cost couples therapy with a TIRP senior student or graduate for a sliding scale fee. If you phone and leave a message, please speak your name and contact information twice, clearly. The therapist will return your call or email, respecting your privacy in any way you request.

Please note:

Therapists are unlikely to respond to emails addressed to more than one person at a time, whether directly or using bcc.
