People often come to therapy because they seek the absence of the negative in their lives. They tell me that they don't want to be sad anymore. They don't want racing thoughts. They say they don't want to feel the way that they feel at this moment. It's challenging to have a clear vision of the future; of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations when the pain is too blinding right now. When was the last time someone asked you what you want in your life and actually responded in a supportive way? My job is to help cultivate those wants and partner with you on your path ...

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. If you’re looking for a nearby therapist close to 77062 or surrounding zip codes, take a look at other available therapists in the popular nearby cities listed below.
