Sometimes, navigating life's difficulties requires the help of a professional. No matter what your life experience, working with a therapist can be a step toward growth. Barriers to treatment, like a lack of available providers or transportation concerns, can make it challenging to find an in-person provider. An online platform like BetterHelp can make treatment more flexible and convenient.

With BetterHelp, you can work with a clinical psychologist, licensed professional counselor, or clinical mental health counselor from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you. Plus, you can change providers anytime until you find one with whom you have a good therapeutic relationship.

Therapists on the platform are experienced in counseling psychology and familiar with a broad range of treatment modalities. Whether you’re experiencing the stress of navigating the criminal justice system or dealing with life challenges like domestic violence, abuse, or other types of trauma, a therapist will work with you to understand your personal experience and help you learn coping skills for daily life.

If you’re looking for an online therapist, NM has many options. The psychologists, counselors, and social workers listed below are licensed to provide online treatment across New Mexico.

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 New Mexico 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.
