"Very Nice. Made me feel better about a situation."
"I only had sessions with Chana for a month but she definitely helped me a lot, especially with my job preferences/search & some good tips so thank you a lot! "
"Mary was really able to help my young teen though a confusing time in regards to gender identity issues. In the few visits they had with Mary, I could tell they seemed more at ease & comfortable with themselves again— which is what I wanted. I hope to be able to reconnect my teen with Mary in the future. Thank you!"
"I love how Jonathon is helping me and giving me little goals to do to keep up with my health! I also like how I can vent to him and talk to him about things I can’t really discuss with my friends"

Simply type in your city, state, or zip code in the search bar above to find a therapist helping people in your area. Finding a therapist near you is helpful if you're seeking in-person therapy. With online therapy, you have more flexibility in choosing therapy with a therapist best suited for your needs.
Just about anyone can benefit from meeting with a licensed therapist. A therapist can also teach you skills to cope with emotional or mental stressors you are facing.
Finding the right therapist for you can seem overwhelming, but you can narrow down your search by considering what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Take a few minutes to read through some therapist profiles to see their different areas of expertise and their philosophies on therapy. If you feel like your matched therapist isn’t the right one for you, you can choose to match with a different therapist at any time. The most important thing in therapy is if you feel comfortable with your therapist.
After taking our short questionnaire, you can instantly message the therapist that you’ve been matched to and schedule a time with them for a live therapy session. You can message your therapist as often as you would like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Online therapy typically allows you to connect with therapists more often than in-person therapy does. In both online therapy and in-person therapy, your therapist will integrate different methods into your treatment plan. For example, cognitive-behavioral therapy is used to challenge and replace negative thoughts (cognitions) with healthy behaviors. Other methods include dialectical behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, psychodynamic therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and family therapy.
Traditional face-to-face therapy typically costs $150-250 per session, while online therapy ranges from $60-90 per week (billed every four weeks). With face-to-face therapy, you're paying for one live therapy session per week, and you generally cannot contact your therapist between sessions. With online therapy, you're paying for one live therapy session per week, as well as the ability to message your therapist 24/7. With BetterHelp therapy, therapists typically check their messages once or twice a day.
When it comes to asking questions to therapists to see if they're a good fit, you can start by emailing or calling the therapists' offices. You can usually find therapists' contact information online. Start by introducing yourself, and mention that you're curious about starting therapy. Ask if the therapist has experience working with people who are dealing with the same specific issues as you are. Keep calling or emailing the therapists until you find someone with past experience treating the same issues in therapy. Once you start therapy, remember that therapists are there to help you. If there's not a good fit between the therapist and client in therapy, don't feel bad about reaching out to a different therapist.
