III. What You Should Know About Rochester Therapy

How are Rochester therapists licensed?

Rochester therapists must complete a lengthy licensing process before they are qualified to see patients. They must hold a master’s or doctorate in counseling from an accredited institution. Then, they need to complete 3,000 hours of supervised therapy over the course of two years. After that, they must undergo several background checks and pass the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination.

How much does therapy cost in Rochester?

The cost for a single therapy session in Rochester can range from $60 to $200. On average, a 50-minute session costs around $90. Many therapists in the area accept insurance and offer sliding fee scales for patients who are facing financial difficulties. However, not all therapists accept all insurance plans, so it’s a good idea to ask before your first session.
