Who We Are

Council for Relationships is a community-based nonprofit counseling organization that provides a unique combination of comprehensive services, education and research that help people understand, respect, and improve the quality of the important relationships in their lives.

Over 70 therapists and psychiatrists at 9 offices and community-based locations in the Greater Philadelphia area provide counseling to families, couples, and individuals. More than 60 clinical interns per year enrolled in Council’s clinician education programs provide counseling on a sliding fee scale.

We are committed to providing quality service to all those in need, regardless of ability to pay.
