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 70 therapists and psychiatrists at 10 offices and community-based locations in the Greater Philadelphia Area provide counseling to individuals, couples, and families. More than 50 clinical interns provide counseling on a sliding fee scale through CFR’s clinician education programs.

We are committed to providing quality therapy services to all regardless of ability to pay. We operate on a sliding fee scale and one-third of our clients receive counseling services at low- or no-fee.
