If you’re interested in therapy in Utah, consider online treatment. While an independent practice or a mental health center may be available in your area, barriers to treatment, like a lack of available providers or transportation issues, can make it challenging to find an in-person appointment. 

With BetterHelp, you can attend therapy with social workers, psychologists, and other mental health professionals from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you, making treatment more accessible and convenient. This flexibility can benefit busy UT students, professionals, or parents with limited time in their schedules. 

While BetterHelp does not currently provide group therapy or hold support groups, the providers on the platform can provide a welcoming environment for individual counseling and help you through your unique challenges. You can also request to have your counseling records transferred to your medical doctor or other provider if needed.

Whether you need to learn coping skills or mindfulness techniques or want to overcome past experiences, online treatment can help. If you’re looking for an online therapist, UT has many individual counseling services available. The providers on the following list are licensed to provide individual therapy online in Utah. If you need immediate support, please see the resources on our Get Help Now page.

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 Utah 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.
