Scottsdale is one of the most western towns out there, and some consider it like the desert version of Miami. Your life can feel like a western town at times. When it’s good, you feel like you’re the sheriff in charge of the town, and peace is at hand. However, when the town is in chaos, you may need some backup. 

A counselor can be the backup you need when the town needs a new sheriff. By speaking to a Scottsdale-based counselor, you can bring some order into the town you’re in. Why live in a town in chaos when you can enjoy your town?

Welcome! My name is Angela. It is an honor to be a witness to your journey and be a part of the change that you are seeking. I feel that it is quite profound to be trusted and brought into the most vulnerable aspects of a persons life. I do not take that lightly. Sometimes it is just about holding the space and allowing for the process to organically unfold. Bearing witness. Other times, it is much more about guidance, tools, or structure. Whatever route, to me, I see it as being the mirror of change that comes from within you. I am glad you are here and look forw...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Scottsdale area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Scottsdale, elsewhere in the Maricopa county.

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

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Scottsdale ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Arizona 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 Scottsdale and elsewhere throughout the state of Arizona, 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 able to work with people like you in or around Scottsdale 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. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. 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, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. A Scottsdale therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 246,645 people in the city of Scottsdale, finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do. Our goal with the list of therapists shown above is to get you the support you need today.
