How long are therapy sessions? Therapy sessions generally last 55 minutes although some insurance companies limit sessions at 45 minutes. Your therapist will discuss the length of session that applies to you.
How often are sessions scheduled? Generally, sessions are weekly. Dependent on circumstances, there are occasions that the therapist and client jointly agree that sessions should be scheduled twice per week. As goals are met, some clients reduce their sessions to every other week.
