Please don't "shop by price" for a "good therapist".
I have found excellent therapists by asking around, and making a few calls. Their "off the shelf" rates may have been around $120/hour, but both were in my insurance plan, so they have pre-agreed to lower negotiated rates (like $60 or $80), then I pay my 10% copay. Even without the discount: 10% of $120 ain't so bad.
My son's psychiatrist on the other hand is $200 a visit (usually only a 30 minute session), and "doesn't take insurance". But he gives me a receipt (with an official diagnosis code and procedure code), and I submit it to my insurance and still get about two-thirds of that back.
But you only need to see a psychiatrist if you need meds. (Maybe for anxiety or depression.) If you weren't under psychiatric care before your marital problems came up, you might not need them now. Unless: you had an untreated depression or anxiety issue (which may have lead to marital issues), or you are under such severe anxiety now that you need some Valium to get you through for a few weeks. Then again: your GP might be able to prescribe Valium; call his or her office and ask.
Furthermore: most psychiatrists DON'T do talk therapy. For "talk therapy", you probably need a psychologist (usually a PhD) or licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) (usually a Masters Degree).
But more schooling doesn't mean "better" either! Mostly you need someone you feel you can really "talk to".
