I am grateful to have had the honor of working with clients for over five years and to have witnessed their successful growth and positive change. In the process, I’ve come to see my primary role as someone who sells hope: Yes, it can get better! No, you are not hopeless—you’re human! For the record, I would not sell to anyone else what I do not buy myself. The poet Emily Dickinson instructed us to “Dwell in possibility.” With that as my mantra, my overarching goal is to support hope and help clients uncover alternate possibilities on the way to achievi...

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 San Jose 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 San Jose, elsewhere in the Santa Clara 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 San Jose ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of California 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 San Jose and elsewhere throughout the state of California, 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 San Jose 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 San Jose therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 1,025,350 people in the city of San Jose, 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.
