You can't force someone to do something they don't want to do.
You need to lay down the rules for your house though. Let him know that he will be charged rent and be expected to pay for his share of the utilities. If he doesn't have the money then he will need to get a job.
What is he seeing a therapist for? It seems like a bit of a throw in comment that you hope no one will notice or it makes a difference.
