Fergus Falls is named for the river falls that occupy a part of the city area. While the falls can be calming, and a great tourist attraction combined with the parkland, they may not be calming to everyone. Some people may feel sadness, anxiety, or stress even when in the thrall of such natural formations. If you are struggling with depression or anxiety, there is help available.

Counselors in the Fergus Falls area are available now to help you and offer support. These confidential and licensed therapists can provide a listening ear and teach you coping skills to help you through your times of trouble. Contact a counselor today.

Hello! I am happy you are here, looking at options. I believe therapy, at it's core, is about finding options so that you can make choices to start creating a life that works for you. Often, we recognize that our life is not working in some way and then we want to change that. Of course, wanting to change and knowing how to change are two different things and that is where therapy can be helpful. My view is that human beings are constantly changing, growing, adapting, whether we like it or not. Consider that you are not the same person you were 10 years ago. In so...

As a clinical social worker at a metro based oncology and hematology clinic, my experience is specializing in work with individuals facing a life threatening illness. Working through adjustments to the diagnosis and the loss in multiple facets of life is difficult to do on your own, and often the individuals and families I work with feel that they are already putting too much of a burden on their loved ones to share some of their mental and emotional anguish. I am here to be with you through all that an illness or other major life change brings.

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

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Fergus Falls 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 Fergus Falls 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 Fergus Falls, or elsewhere in the Otter Tail county or state of Minnesota.


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 Fergus Falls, MN ranges from $85-$150.

Some therapists in the state of Minnesota 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 Fergus Falls and elsewhere throughout the state of Minnesota, 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 Fergus Falls 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 Fergus Falls therapist can help you confront these kinds of issues and find ways to face them and heal.

With more than 13419 people in the city of Fergus Falls, MN 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.

Whether you are here looking for a a child psychologist in Fergus Falls, couples counseling in Fergus Falls, family conflict therapy in Fergus Falls, or a marriage counselor open to working with individuals in you area... BetterHelp can assist you, possibly in new ways that you haven't tried using technology.

Are therapists covered by insurance?

Therapy with a clinical psychologist is often NOT covered by health insurance. While only some health plans in the USA cover counseling in Fergus Falls, this does not have to make your search for therapists in you area a challenge. The reason is our new ways of using technology like text, video, phone, and live chat options have made it easier for therapists working with individuals like you easier and much more affordable; as described above.
