Salem is known for its cherries. Cherries can be sweet and ripe, but picking them can sometimes be a challenge, and it can be hard to figure out what kind of cherries you want. A counselor can be that cherrypicker who gets you the right bowl of cherries for you to enjoy.

It is not uncommon for us to feel stuck, ambivalent, or even apathetic. We can fall into unhealthy and unmanageable patterns. And it is very common for us to go through episodes of this, revisiting familiar, unwelcome emotions when we least expect it.

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

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Salem 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 Salem 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 Salem, or elsewhere in the Marion county or state of Oregon.


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 Salem, OR ranges from $85-$150.

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

With more than 167419 people in the city of Salem, OR 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. If you’re looking for a nearby therapist close to 97312 or the surrounding zip codes (shown below), take a look at other available therapists in the popular nearby cities listed at the bottom of this page.

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 Salem, couples counseling in Salem, family conflict therapy in Salem, 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 Salem, 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.

With that in mind, you can feel comfortable to look at the list of available therapists on our platform ready to both help and work with clients like you; all while building a healthy therapeutic relationship designed to assist you. When it comes to working with a BetterHelp therapist on our platform, it's important to keep in mind that the services offered here normally are not covered by health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare.
