There are times when we are faced with events in life that are beyond our ability to fully recover on our own. Together we can explore the roadblocks that prevent the healing process. Our experiences from the moment we were born shape our perceptions about life and self. Over time we become conditioned to exist in our environment. This conditioning is usually grounded in fear. That fear is usually grounded in distorted perceptions. Lasting change comes from the conscious challenging of those old distorted perceptions of ourselves and the world we live in and finding truth about who we really are.

Sometimes we need help creating a safe space where we can be open and honest while we make sense of an event we want to resolve or our lives overall. Sometimes we need help to heal and someone to simply hear our story. A story filled with our experiences in the world and shaped by perceptions that are human-naturally distorted and flawed. People begin therapy for various reasons, yet wanting change is universal and desiring authenticity is the heart of this path. It is not about being happy, better, fixed. You are not broken. Healing reveals your authenticity and allows you to become... it feels like peace, bravery and truth.

Life can be overwhelming at times. In fact, most people will experience at least mild depression and or anxiety at some time due to life events such as death, divorce, relationship difficulties, and work stress. Traumatic events in childhood create a different kind of stress and can cause only mildly stressful events to be amplified for you. Did you know that most people have at least one event in their childhood that qualifies as a traumatic event? It is normal for individuals who have experienced trauma of some kind to experience anxiety and or depression. So here you are looking through a website full of therapists trying to make a decision! Congratulations on taking the first step to improving your life. Many of the most successful people in life seek the counsel of others in order to increase knowledge and improve their lives. Therapy can be that counsel bringing clarity, collaboration, and change to your life.

I am a licensed independent social worker and I currently provide therapy to kids ranging from ages 4-17. Children may display concerning behaviors and emotions such as a refusal to comply with expectations, inattention, impulsivity, a withdrawal from things they previously liked, excessive worrying, or being overly sensitive to different stimuli in the environment. These behaviors can negatively impact their relationships with parents and/or caregivers, siblings, teachers, and friends both at home and in school.

Life can be overwhelming and, at times, take unexpected turns. In those moments, it is refreshing to know that we have someone to turn to who can support us as we navigate those challenges. After all, just like children, emotions heal when they are heard and validated.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
