Mine charges $105 per session which is a little less than what she charges newer patients - I think she charges me a little less because I go 2x a week and I think she tries to keep people as close to the rate they started at as she can. My T has a PhD; I think my pdoc charges her therapy patients more - maybe $165.

Dinah is right - I think a lot of this is dictated by your location. I don't begrudge my T a penny of what she charges and frankly thought she should have raised the rate from where I started ($95) a lot sooner than she did. Also although she definitely needs the income, when I thought I might be losing my insurance coverage, she instantly offered to lower my rate to keep me in therapy. On the other hand, I think a T's overhead probably isn't all that huge in relation to some other professional services
