Fees and Payments

Discounted Services —Sliding Fee Scale

Part of the Therapy Center of Philadelphia’s mission is to make therapy more accessible. Therefore, all of our services are offered at a discount, using a sliding fee scale. The fee you will pay is based on your income and number of dependents and is established at the time of your intake. It will be reassessed annually unless your circumstances change. We do not offer free therapy services.


TCP accepts: AETNA Chickering UPenn student health insurance and Penn Behavioral Health Insurance. Please let the intake coordinator know if you have this insurance when you call.

TCP does not accept payment from any other insurance companies. However, we can provide you with receipts that may be submitted to your insurance provider along with your application for out-of-network insurance reimbursement.

Range of Prices

$35-120 for Individual and Couples Psychotherapy
$20-$70 for Group Therapy
Your established rate + $25 for Intakes

Payment in full is required at the time that therapy services are provided. Payment may be made by cash or check, or by credit card via PayPal.

“TCP has been an anchor in my life. When I first came here I was unemployed and wouldn’t have been able to access counseling if not for their sliding scale. My therapist helped me overcome bad experiences that were haunting me. I now am in school, in a relationship, and trust the future. I never thought I would say that.”
