Who We Are

Council for Relationships is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help people from all walks of life improve their important relationships by providing exemplary therapy, educating and training clinicians in the family systems approach, and advancing the behavioral health field through research.

More than 60 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.
