Working with a licensed therapist can provide a non-judgmental space for working through your unique challenges, like navigating relationship difficulties, improving low self-esteem, or managing the symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety or depression.

If you’re looking for a therapist, AZ has many options for online therapy. Barriers to treatment, like transportation issues or concerns about cost, can make finding the right therapist challenging. Plus, you may live in a part of the state where access to Tucson or Phoenix therapists is limited. Telehealth services through a platform like BetterHelp can give you convenient and flexible mental health care from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you.

BetterHelp does not provide group therapy or treatment designed for children, like play therapy at this time. However, the psychologists, social workers, and other professionals on the platform can guide you through various modalities, including narrative therapy, art therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Plus, you can change providers at any time until you find the right therapeutic relationship for you. 

If you’re looking for a therapist in Flagstaff, Phoenix, Tucson, or the surrounding areas, connect with a provider licensed in Arizona below to learn more about the therapeutic process and take a step toward improving your mental health.

Hi! My name is June. As you can see, I’m an older person. Some of you may prefer a younger therapist believing that they may identify with you and that could be what you need. I’d like you to consider using me as your therapist because I am older. I have had many of the feelings you are experiencing myself. I’ve had some tough times and poor self esteem and worked through life shifts. I am able to teach some things that are only learned with age. I’ve practiced my skills for over 20 years. I went back to school late in life because I overcame struggles and wanted to help others do the same. I’ve seen a lot so I’m less judgmental. It’s normal to feel uncomfortable when first starting therapy. I may challenge you but will do so safely. I love therapy, listening to others and sharing what I can. You will find I work hard for you. The techniques I use are varied to my clients comfort. My degree is LPC which means licensed clinical therapist. I now live in Montana in the summer and Arizona the rest of the year. I am licensed to work with people from both states and no other states.

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Arizona. I have worked in behavioral health for about 15 years, and have been a counselor for 7. I've helped people who have extensive and complex trauma, depression, relationship issues, loneliness and all kinds of other issues. One of my areas of extra training in is working with for are people who have been sex trafficked, and I have worked with survivors of sex trafficking. I believe in treating clients with empathy and respect. I feel a solemn obligation to be a safe outlet to clients so they can share deep hurts if they need to. I don't believe in judging or critiquing other people's pasts. I also don't push. I believe in letting people steer their sessions and set their own pace. Some clients do better with forward focused therapies with little focus on the past and I can provide that. Some clients feel a need to look at the past to figure it out and I can help you do that too. I am trauma informed and trained/experienced with EMDR, DBT, ACT, MI, CBT, and brief strategic therapy. **Please note, my calendar is always in Arizona time. If it says otherwise, just ignore that. I live in Arizona and have never bothered to memorize when my time zone matches MST or not.**

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. 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 counselor 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 professionals 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 an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. 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.
