My professional experience includes managing the mental health needs of inmates at a county jail, individual counsel for those suffering from addiction at a methadone clinic, and providing family therapy for at-risk children in Los Angeles County. When I was a pre-licensed therapist I volunteered at a non-profit to offer low-cost counseling services, assisted with intake at a Jewish Family Center in Long Beach, and counseled autistic young adults.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Santa Barbara, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Santa Barbara listed first.
