Smiths Station, Alabama is a bedroom community in east-central Alabama. Settlers lived on the land as early as the 1700s but the town was a latecomer in getting incorporated in 2001. Smiths Station gets its name from an early settler by the name of Broadus Smith and the locals affectionately refer to their town as “Smiths.” Each new day brings optimism, but when you’re not feeling your mental or emotional best, you may feel like hibernating to your bedroom rather than face the world.

Smiths Station is new community and you don’t have to miss all that it has to offer. Quaint as it may be, the Smiths Station area offers professional mental health counselors that are a good match for helping you emerge from isolation.

Having a hard time selecting a therapist in Smiths Station? (Here Is How Our Smiths Station Therapists Can Help)

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Smiths Station area; especially when you're having a hard time trying to find therapists accepting new clients.

First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue BEFORE trying to find a therapist or psychologist. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy, group therapy, family therapy, or couple’s counseling; just pick the Smiths Station therapist that is right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, the types of therapy they're most experienced with, and then finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Smiths Station, or elsewhere in the Lee county or state of Alabama.


What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our listed therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, and in some instances you might find that the average price of a therapy session in Smiths Station, AL ranges from $85-$150.

Some therapists in the state of Alabama will work on a sliding scale, meaning they’ll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With our therapists serving both the city of Smiths Station and elsewhere throughout the state of Alabama, you can expect significantly more affordable options with sessions ranging from $40 to $70 per week (billed monthly).


Did you know our therapists are not limited to in-person visits?

Online therapists, including all those listed above (all of which are in the United States) able to work with people like you in or around Smiths Station offer creative forms of communication to help people like you receive the best type of treatment for your needs.

Whether that’s via sms texting with your therapist, video sessions where you see you one another and talk about your problems, live chat or phone sessions, you and your therapist will find the best way to address your mental health challenges.

How to know if therapy is right for you?

One of the rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is that they are listening to your feelings. Our friends and loved ones often hear us, but they may have a hard time providing objective guidance in the way a therapist can; which can be extremely valuable due to the fact that many therapists have experience helping others through similar difficult times.

A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state, no matter what you're dealing with (including behavioral health concerns, grief, anxiety, depression or stress). In addition to developing healthier emotions, another benefit of therapy is you have a safe space to discuss problems that you may be hesitant to talk about with people in your everyday life.

Many people have sensitive topics to discuss; possibly an addiction or an issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends and/or partner. A Smiths Station therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.
