Therapy offers reflection and redefines what is possible in your life. For nearly two decades I have been in position to see a number of individuals and families take advantage of the opportunity that therapy provides to create functional responses to the ups and downs of being alive. The therapeutic relationship is sacred to me because it is through the client-therapist connection that the mirror of self-awareness becomes clear. It is not unusual for each member of the relationship to have their life touched and changed for the better. I see it as an honor and p...

As far as the world knows, you're okay. You have tried to "get over it," to "just feel better," and to "move on" but nothing seems to work.

You want to take steps towards helping yourself but you feel stuck. You want to feel happy, to breathe without the weight on your chest and to accomplish the goals you have set out for yourself.

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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, elsewhere in the Duval 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 Jacksonville ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Florida 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 Jacksonville and elsewhere throughout the state of Florida, 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 Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 880,619 people in the city of Jacksonville, 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.
