Individual, Couple and Family Therapy Services
The Drexel University Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy Clinic offers teletherapy and in-person therapy to residents of Pennsylvania and in-person therapy to residents of Philadelphia and surrounding areas, including students. The fee for service is based on household income using a sliding scale so individuals, couples, and families can access care if they do not have insurance, need a more affordable fee, or prefer not to use their insurance. We provide services to people from childhood through their elder years, using relational and evidence-based approaches. We offer services for people who are seeking support to manage life challenges, find solutions, and develop strength and confidence to achieve your goals. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family problems, or other mental health issues, our Therapy Interns, supervised by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, are here to provide hope and experiences that will support you achieving your goals. The Interns can also help those who are looking for a growth experience such as learning more positive approaches to communicating with others, pre-marital therapy, self-identity work, or going through a normative or non-normative change in your life, such as adding a new member to the household or someone losing a job. To support the mental health needs of our community, the Drexel Individual, Couple and Family Therapy Clinic is offering in-person and telehealth (video) services to new and current clients. To be eligible for services, you must be physically located in the state of Pennsylvania at the time of your telehealth session appointment or living in the tri-state region for in-person services.

In 2014, the Drexel University Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy Services opened. The mission of the clinic is to provide affordable access to behavioral and mental health services to the diverse population of individuals, couples, and families in Center and University City Philadelphia surrounding communities. The Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) degree students see clients at our Center City clinic and via telehealth throughout the academic year, including the summer. The MFT program received its initial accreditation in 1985 and since then has successfully met requirements for reaccreditation from Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE).
