Everything is bigger in Texas, including the cities. Houston is known for many things, with its nickname being the Space City. Sometimes, your life can feel like space. At some points, it feels wondrous and you’re ready to explore it. However, there are times when space can feel cold, empty, and there is no one there to understand you. 

If you’re ready to explore space, a counselor can be the ground control you’re looking for. They can provide you guidance and ways to survive your journey. Speak to a Houston-based counselor today.

Asking for help can be the most difficult decision you can make for yourself. It’s never easy as naturally we like to handle things on our own. Part of life can sometimes be that moment when you take a look at your life and wonder how you got to a certain point. Now is the time for you to start a new journey to a happier and emotionally healthier you. Strength comes in knowing when it’s time to ask for help and understanding that it is okay to need help sometimes. Just as people are not all the same I do not believe in having a “cookie cutter” approach to couns...

Reaching out and trying to find a therapist can be one of the hardest things to do when you are feeling in chaos and in crisis. Once you take that first step, it gets easier and progressively easier. Feeling like someone is actually listening to you and focusing on you is so important, especially now days. As a therapist, I focus on each person’s specific needs and I adjust my style accordingly. I tend to draw from solution focused, strengths based and cognitive behavioral areas in order to help folks problem solve things that are going on currently and in the...

Having a hard time selecting a therapist?

Finding the right therapist can feel intimidating, but there are simple ways to narrow down your search for the Houston area. First, research what type of therapy you’d like to pursue. Maybe that’s psychodynamic, cognitive behavior therapy or couple’s counseling; just pick what’s right for your needs. Next consider whether the gender of your therapist matters, and finally choose a therapist located near you in the city of Houston, elsewhere in the Harris county.

What is the cost difference between conventional therapy and working with one of our therapists above?

The United States has many therapists who are comfortable charging $200 or more per session, but the average price of a therapy session in Houston ranges from $75-$150. Some therapists in the state of Texas 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 Houston and elsewhere throughout the state of Texas, 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 able to work with people like you in or around Houston 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.

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. A therapist wants to support you toward a healthier emotional state. 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, an addiction or issue with their relationship that they’re ashamed to speak about with their friends or partner. A Houston therapist can help you confront this issue and find ways to face it and heal. With more than 2,303,482 people in the city of Houston, 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.
