How Long are the Sessions?

Insurance companies in the USA reimburse therapists for 45-minute sessions. Most therapists bill their sessions in this way, and practice within that time span.

This works for most individual therapy.

“Evidenced-based” couples therapy is not based upon a “45 minute hour.”  The standard for those practicing in this way is one hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes.
