Living with anxiety is overwhelming! You're probably noticing how it affects everything from work, school, relationships, and even sleep! Many that struggle need relief but don't know how to find it. Maybe it has taken over and you can't remember what it is like to feel at peace with yourself. Maybe that sounds impossible. It might be hard to make sense of what is happening and why you feel the way you do. You are feeling that way for a reason! When we don’t make sense to ourselves things can feel hopeless. You don’t have to live with feeling overwhelmed forever. We can make sense of your anxiety together.

Questioning your belief system or processing negative experiences that occurred in religious or tight-knit social contexts can be lonely and frightening. Those who speak up about their questions, thoughts and feelings, or traumatic events within the community often feel shame and isolation. Too often, they are left wondering, “Is something wrong with me?” This sense of isolation usually means people suffer quietly, feeling as though there is nowhere to turn.

Life can certainly be overwhelming at times! I have had my fair share of those seasons, times when I wasn’t sure I’d make it out, times when I thought this is how it’ll always be, times when hopeless seemed accurate. Perhaps you are feeling that way now? Or maybe you’re feeling like everything is stagnate, boring, wondering to yourself “what’s the point?” Today more than ever, mental health matters!

It can take a lot of courage to schedule your first counseling session. The therapeutic process involves vulnerability. This might feel pretty intimidating if you’ve lacked a safe space to process your feelings in the past! However, beyond the field of intimidation lies a place of personal empowerment through the therapeutic process. Unprocessed trauma can often leave us feeling paralyzed in a suffocating shadow of our past. Every room in our head might appear dark & without direction. We may even begin to develop distorted perceptions of ourselves and the world around us; which can lead to a lack of clarity & peace.

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.
