Therapist salary

The salary of a therapist can vary widely depending on a number of factors, including the type of therapy they practice, their level of education and training, their location, and the number of years they have been practicing.

For example, according to data from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual wage for substance abuse, behavioral disorder, and mental health counselors was $46,240 in May 2020. The median wage for clinical, counseling, and school psychologists was $80,370 per year, while the median wage for marriage and family therapists was $50,090 per year.

It’s important to note that these are just estimates, and actual salaries can vary significantly based on the factors mentioned above. Some therapists may earn more or less than these median figures, depending on their individual circumstances.
