For Clinical Therapists, experience is not a major factor in determining pay, and incremental pay growth is standard. In five to 10 years time, starting salaries of $39K can reach $42K. Salary comes to $47K after 10 to 20 years. After two decades on the job, Clinical Therapists see salary growth dwindle, averaging $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 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10 percent. Most of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
