Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Clinical Therapists do not generally earn higher salaries from more experience in the field—in most many but not all cases, experience is not a driving force behind pay increase. Salaries can reach $42K from $39K after five to 10 years. Pay amounts to $47K after 10 to 20 years. Clinical Therapists who stay in the field for several decades see their salaries grow less quickly after 20 years, with incomes eventually hovering around $51K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 16 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10. Most of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
