If you need help overcoming mental health challenges, therapy can be a step toward reaching your goals. However, barriers to treatment, like a lack of available counselors or transportation challenges, can make finding in-person care challenging. With an online platform like BetterHelp, you can get one-on-one mental health care from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you.

Whether you need a trauma-informed approach to recover from domestic violence or want to learn stress management techniques to prevent burnout, an online therapist will work with you to determine what therapeutic approach meets your unique needs. Note that while BetterHelp therapists are skilled in a wide range of mental health care modalities, the platform does not offer play therapy or other therapy services to children and adolescents at this time.

If you need help with relationship building or getting over your fear of flying for a future trip to San Diego, a licensed therapist can help. When looking for an online therapist, HI has various options. Whether you are a firm believer in the therapeutic process or have never worked with a mental health professional, connect with one of the licensed providers below offering telehealth services in the Aloha State to learn more.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Nashville. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in mental health, from the University of Southern California. I have worked with individuals who have a variety of physical disabilities and mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders and polysubstance abuse. I also have experience working with LGBT individuals, offering counseling for interpersonal relationship issues and other life stressors including trauma/abuse and stress management. Additionally, I have worked with individuals and couples to attain skills that foster healthy development of peer, romantic partnership, marriage and family relationships. Counseling can be a vital component of a person’s whole health, as it supports understanding of one’s own life experiences that have a direct influence on each person’s continuing journey. My approach to counseling is collaborative. I encourage everyone to consider counseling with a skilled clinician whose experience and therapeutic style is a suitable fit for his or her needs. Through counseling, individuals can gain valuable support and learn tools to manage the daily stressors of life. I enjoy helping my clients navigate their life paths. I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you!

Hey there! I am Whitney Hughes, she/her. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Mental Health and Emotional Wellness Connection Coach as well as a Trauma-Informed Certified Pause Breathwork Facilitator. Many years ago, I graduated from the University of Maine with a BA in Liberal Studies, which allowed me to concentrate on the behavioral sciences. 3 children later, I pursued a Master’s Degree in Counseling Education: Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Western Michigan University. I knew I wanted to use my personal story, my battles with anxiety, depression, CPTSD, PTSD, substance use, my professional experience, and my educational background to support not only myself but so many others on their own, unique healing journey. Some of the most important elements of my therapeutic work are CONNECTION, SAFETY, and INCLUSIVITY. Throughout my journey, I have learned that when I connect with myself, I am able to deepen my connection with others and the world in which we live. When we connect inward, to ourselves, we connect to our intuition, that part of ourselves that creates clarity, peace, and alignment in our daily lives. As humanBEINGS, we are wired for connection. When we lose sight of this connection, our lives can get messy. In order to connect, we must first feel safe, seen, heard, and held. My personal mission is to connect with you, to help you connect with your truest self, and to create a safe space for you to share your story. I am here to encourage, listen, witness, and support you. My continued journey has taught me that we, that YOU, already have the power to shift your world, and sometimes we need someone who we can open up to and trust to help us see the light that is already within. I am looking forward to connecting soon!

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 Hawaii 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.
