Low Fee Therapy
Low Fee Therapy Services
CFR is committed to offering high-quality therapy services for all, regardless of ability to pay.
CFR interns provide therapy for $15 to $45 per hour. Interns are closely supervised by licensed clinicians on CFR’s senior staff. Low fee sessions are intended to provide access to counseling for those who aren’t able to otherwise afford it. If there is a waiting list for services, verification of income may be required.
Fees to see an intern are generally lower than co-pays, therefore CFR does not provide statements for reimbursement to insurance companies for Low Fee Therapy. Payment for Low Fee Therapy can be made by cash, check, or credit card.
We offer a sliding fee scale based on income and no one is turned away due to financial limitations.
Clients seeking Low Fee Therapy Services work with CFR clinicians or interns who are enrolled in one of two programs:
The Post Graduate Certificate Program in Marriage and Family Therapy is one of the nation’s premier training programs for licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). Three tracks are offered: Clinical, Clergy, and Sex Therapy. The majority of students in this program have prior experience as social workers, case managers, or other mental health professionals.
The Master’s Degree in Family Therapy program, which is a partnership between CFR and Thomas Jefferson University. These students have Bachelor’s degrees in related fields and many already have professional experience prior to enrolling in the program.
Both of these programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).
More about working with our Interns
Interns are closely supervised by senior level CFR therapists. They meet with supervisors for several hours each week to discuss their work and to review recordings of their sessions. CFR believes that clients receive the best treatment from their interns when their sessions are recorded and viewed in supervision. Interns discuss this option with all of their clients, who can then opt out if they choose. Recordings are treated with the utmost care, protected as required by law, and deleted following review in supervision.
At CFR we have provided treatment to thousands of individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds and facing a wide variety of challenges. Our extensive experience and research shows that often the therapy process can be helped when other family members or loved ones are included.
Our therapy process begins with developing a customized treatment plan and goals. When we think it is clinically appropriate, we may ask you to consider inviting a family member or loved one into your therapy. We operate under a collaborative model in which the therapist and client work together to attain client goals.
