Arizona is a beautiful state with a lot to offer. Crisp, dry heat. Beautiful deserts that give birth to some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes the world has to offer. The list goes on. Arizona is a pretty state to live in.

However, if your mental health is poor, you may feel emptier than the Grand Canyon or drier than the hottest desert. A counselor can be the oasis you need. Talk to a counselor and go back to enjoying

Hi there! Nice to meet you. I am a warm, compassionate therapist who also knows how to be direct and straight-forward. I work best with clients who are motivated to change & are willing to do work outside of our therapy sessions. Most “evidence-based” (research supported) treatments involve some work and effort outside of our therapy hour. Sometimes this can be practicing skills we discuss in therapy or completing written assignments that will help you translate your therapy skills into your everyday life.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How Much Does A Therapist Cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.  

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How Do I Know If I Should Get A Therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. Although therapists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A therapist may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many therapists provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Arizona can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to a therapist's office.

Does Insurance Cover Therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Private practice therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is Online Therapy Safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
