Therapy can help you learn more about yourself and lead a more meaningful life. If you’re looking for a therapist, GA has many options for online treatment. Finding a therapist in Georgia can be challenging. Barriers to treatment, like a lack of available providers or transportation issues, can make it challenging to find in-person treatment. 

While BetterHelp does not currently provide group therapy, you can get one-on-one treatment with a licensed psychologist, social worker, marriage and family therapist, or other mental health professional. Every therapist on the platform has a master's of arts or science degree. Note that while BetterHelp providers have a wide range of experience, they do not offer mental health care to children or use techniques designed for younger clients, like play therapy, at this time.

BetterHelp providers use a holistic approach and a variety of therapeutic techniques to ensure that they meet your unique needs. If you need help developing coping skills, improving self-awareness, or facing challenges in your family, counseling can help. Whether you’re in Savannah, Augusta, or Atlanta, GA, or anywhere in between, contact one of the therapists below to start working with a provider licensed to practice in the Peach State.

13 years of experience

I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in North Carolina and Georgia with over 12 years of experience working as an active duty Army Officer in Military Treatment Facilities and community partners. In my 22 years as an active duty Army Soldier, I have worked with clients of different ages with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self-harm, conduct disorder or oppositional defiant disorder, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In the U.S. Army my specialty was combat and military sexual trauma-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Combat Operational Stress. I currently provide counseling services for individuals over 18 years of age, but I also provide behavior modification or Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy for children under 18 who are diagnosed with a neurological condition. My counseling style is warm, humorous, and interactive. I am empathetic and nonjudgmental, and I strive to create a therapeutic environment rooted in acceptance, openness, and unconditional positive regard. However, I am also realistic and honest, and I will always tell you the truth, but in a kind and supportive way. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic or client-centered, reality and rational-emotive counseling. I will work collaboratively with you to create a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and together we will track your progress and revise the treatment plan when necessary. In our journey together, you will be the driver and I will be the passenger reading your map. Sometimes we may take a wrong turn and that is OK, but together we will use your map to get back on the track to the destination of your choice. My regular schedule is: Monday - Friday: 5:00 pm - 9:00 PM (EST) Saturday & Sun: Out of the office (Appointments may be considered on a case-by-case basis) I typically check my messages after 5 PM every day (sometimes more) and try to respond within 24 hours of your message, but this is not always possible, but I will do my best to give a timely response. Please note: Periodically my schedule may change. I try to be as flexible as I can when there are specific appointment requests, and we can always discuss other convenient times when I may be able to open up a one-time slot on another day. MY CANCELLATION POLICY Just a quick message to inform you about my cancellation policy. Your appointments and well-being are very important to me, and I understand that sometimes, unexpected delays can occur, making schedule adjustments. If you need to cancel your appointment, I respectfully request at least three days’ notice. Appointments are in high demand, and your advanced notice will allow another client access to that appointment time. Please note: It is Betterhelp’s cancellation policy that you cancel at least 24 hours before the appointment. I look forward to working with you! V/R Dr. Natalia R. Rivera, DSW, LCSW, CADC

The way we move through the world has a lot to do with who we are and who were evolving to be. Our experiences, often contribute into our decision making, more than we realize. When we live with unhealed trauma, our hurt often displays as anger, depression, and low confidence. I strongly believe that representation matters and equitable mental health is necessary. I am a licensed therapist, with more than 7 years of experience as a therapist and 12 years in mental health. I work with my clients at their pace to discover challenges, explore various origins/triggers, and assist them in creating tools to evolve those behaviors, into healthy relationships and confidence.“One size fits all” therapy is not for me, or for you! I strongly believe in creating safe spaces where vulnerability is both respected and acknowledged. I specialize in trauma, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. You may have wondered why therapy often seems like it’s only meant for a specific demographic. I am here to ensure you that if you have been lost in the struggle, that beginning therapy may be exactly what you’ve been searching for. If you’ve been considering therapy and don’t know where to start, let’s work together to create what you envision for your life.

“You spend most of your life inside your head, make it a nice place to be.” - unknown My Therapeutic Perspective My primary therapeutic approach is rooted in a person-centered approach. I also utilize different therapeutic perspectives such as attachment theory, cognitive therapies, and dialectical behavior therapy. I believe every person is unique so I individualize therapy to meet each person’s specific needs. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own lives and everyone within themselves has the capabilities of reaching their full potential. Through a collaborative therapeutic experience, my purpose is to create a safe space where you can express the fullness of who you are without judgment, be a guide on your healing journey, and provide you with the necessary tools to reach your full potential. I value the importance of the counseling relationship and believe that when a person receives unconditional positive regard, empathy, and safety is when healing can begin. About Me I am licensed in Georgia with 5 years of professional work experience. I have experience in individual counseling working with a variety of client’s experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, self-esteem/self-worth issues, life transitions, stressors related to minority populations/marginalized groups, people living with HIV, LGBTQIA, and sexual identity/gender identity concerns. I adhere to all ethical codes and guidelines as defined by the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). If you are interested in beginning the therapeutic process, I am here to support and empower you.

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 Georgia 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.
