Many people’s ambitions are held back by their mental state. You may have big dreams, but they mean nothing if doubt, depression, anxiety, or the circumstances in your life hold you back. What can you do? A counselor based in Sunnyvale can help you. 

Sunnyvale is part of Silicon Valley, a place of high technology. Many inventors and entrepreneurs come here in order to make the next big invention. Perhaps your ambition isn't to reinvent the wheel, but to do something to improve yourself. A counselor can help you with that, and any other ambition you may have. Losing motivation is annoying, but there is a way to gain it back, and someone can help you.

I believe that happiness is not something that we seek or achieve, but something that we allow. We all experience stress and emotional pain that affects us, the way we think about ourselves, and the way we see the world around us. There are alot of things that stop us from allowing our happiness. Life is difficult, there is no instruction manual, and you don’t have to figure it out alone. None of us would know what we look like without a mirror, and a good therapist is that mirror. I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years ...

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

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Sunnyvale 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 Sunnyvale 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 Sunnyvale, or elsewhere in the Santa Clara county or state of California.


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 Sunnyvale, CA ranges from $85-$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 Sunnyvale 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 (all of which are in the United States) able to work with people like you in or around Sunnyvale 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.

So if you're dealing with things like relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy, you want to work with one of our experienced cognitive behavioral therapists (specializing in behavioral health), assistance with eating disorders, or support with other common mental health issues (like stress, anxiety, depression, grief, etc)... take a look at our available therapists above and find a therapist that is right for you.


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 Sunnyvale therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.

With more than 152771 people in the city of Sunnyvale, CA finding a therapist can be both costly and hard to do.

Other FAQs:

What is the difference between a therapist and a psychologist?

Both a therapist and a psychologist can help with some of the most challenging times in life. Often times, a psychologist will work along side a psychiatrist who is also a doctor in order to have medication prescribed if needed for a patient's care; but this is not always to case. At the end of the day, both mental health care professionals can provide the different types of therapy that someone needs.

So if you're looking for a professional, it's likely that one of our therapists can be of assistance and help you feel comfortable and confident with online counseling. Our counseling services will connect you with a licensed professional that is ready to work with clients like you to form a helpful therapeutic relationship.
