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.

Hello! Glad you stopped by. My main desire is to help you work to achieve your goals.

But even before that we will take time to visit and get to know each other. I want those involved to feel good about moving forward. I find that those who are open to objectivity and a fresh perspective often see desired results sooner. Especially when one is willing to be straightforward, honest and ready to work. But if y...

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.
