How Much Does Marriage Counseling or Therapy Cost?

By Alina Gastesi-de Armas, MA, MEd, LMHC

People’s first question about our life changing marriage counseling, career coaching, effective therapy or life coaching is often, “How much does this cost?”

When I hear this I think to myself, “They’re focusing on the wrong thing.”

I’d like you to ask yourself a different question, and one that will be more useful for you: What’s the opportunity cost of NOT getting expert help at the right time?

If you are struggling in your marriage, or in your career, or inside of yourself your future could be hanging in the balance. This is a big deal. Deciding to get expert help during a “fork in the road” moment can be a life-changing investment in yourself, your marriage, your family, and your future.

Your Love, Happiness and Success is Highly Valuable

Working with us is priceless.  It's also affordable.

We offer excellent, expert help that is also affordable. Our effective services are valuable beyond measure — strategic, focused, and proven by research to be the fastest, most efficient way to help you make positive changes that lead to your personal, relational and family’s growth.


We also offer sliding scale rates that are among the lowest in Southwest Broward, because making meaningful help accessible to everyone is one of the core, founding principles of A Place for Growth. “Sliding scale” means that your rate per session would be determined by your income, meaning that your life-changing work with A Place for Growth will fit within your budget.


  • Our advanced clinicians (Andrea Baskin, MS, LMHC, Ivanna Vidal, MSW, LCSW) charge $125 for a 45 minute session, $250 for a 90 minute session and $300 for a 2 hour session.

  • Our early career clinicians are charge between $60 and $105 per session and are able to slide their fees if your financial circumstances warrant it.

  • Alina Gastesi-de Armas, MA, MEd, LMHC charges $175 for a 45 minute session and $350 for a 90 minute session. 

We can help you use your insurance benefits

You can use your insurance for your therapy or marriage counseling sessions if your policy covers behavioral services with out-of-network providers, and you primarily reside in Florida. (If you live out of state or internationally you may also be able to use your benefits, but that will need to be determined on a case-by-case basis).

How our convenient system works: You’ll pay us for your sessions directly, and then we will prepare a receipt for you with all the necessary information ready for you to file your claim to your insurance provider. If you are covered for our of network behavioral health, you’ll get reimbursed for your sessions.

Additionally, our practice accepts payments from Flex Healthcare Spending Accounts (FHSAs) also referred to as HSA accounts

Here’s Our Bottom Line:

Your wellbeing is important to us. We will not allow money to stand between you and the Love, Happiness and Success that you deserve.
