Working with a licensed therapist can provide a non-judgmental space for working through your unique challenges, like navigating relationship difficulties, improving low self-esteem, or managing the symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety or depression.

If you’re looking for a therapist, AZ has many options for online therapy. Barriers to treatment, like transportation issues or concerns about cost, can make finding the right therapist challenging. Plus, you may live in a part of the state where access to Tucson or Phoenix therapists is limited. Telehealth services through a platform like BetterHelp can give you convenient and flexible mental health care from the comfort of your home at a time that works for you.

BetterHelp does not provide group therapy or treatment designed for children, like play therapy at this time. However, the psychologists, social workers, and other professionals on the platform can guide you through various modalities, including narrative therapy, art therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Plus, you can change providers at any time until you find the right therapeutic relationship for you. 

If you’re looking for a therapist in Flagstaff, Phoenix, Tucson, or the surrounding areas, connect with a provider licensed in Arizona below to learn more about the therapeutic process and take a step toward improving your mental health.

The face of someone who looks for support-looks like mine. Sometimes it's struggling with anxiety or depression. Maybe diabetes and the toll the healthy management takes on your life. It could also look like a young adult feeling stuck with so many opportunities in the world. It could look like someone who has lost their job or home and turned to Alcohol or Gambling to ease the pain. Or someone who just can't shake things they may or may not label as TRAUMA in their lives. More important than any of these situations, is the question: How do we regain CONTROL over Happiness and OUR own lives? I believe in taking a holistic and collaborative approach. This means we work together, as a team to improve your whole life-not just your mental or emotional health. There are multiple ways we can go about finding this answer, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EFT, EMDR, Addiction models, Mindfulness-based modalities, Motivational Interviewing and, more. I have been supporting individuals just like you for over 14 years. I am committed to helping people learn how to live their BEST lives! My practice focuses on targeting Anything that stands in your way of functioning as your Best self!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Louisiana and Arizona with over 15 years of experience working with adults in a variety of settings.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker from Boston, Massachusetts (and also licensed in Nevada and Arizona) with fourteen years of experience in providing psychotherapy. I have worked with all different kinds of people, and I have helped them with a variety of challenges and mental health problems. I have post-graduate training in several types of treatment, including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, as well as an academic background from New York University in psycho-dynamic treatment. I know that no two people are the same, so there is no cookie-cutter approach to therapy. When I work with you, my preferred approach is to work together to find the unique approach that works best for you. I like to combine support, empathy and humor with skills-building, problem solving and mindfulness to help people better manage overwhelming emotions and improve their relationships - without any judgment. My goal is to help put you back in the driver's seat of your life and gain mastery over your feelings and relationships. I know how important it is to build a strong and trusting relationship with a therapist, and I provide both validation and truthful insights to my clients. Most of all, I strongly believe in a strengths-based, person-centered approach that recognizes each person's unique abilities and helps them to reach their highest potential. What I love about online therapy is that it's so flexible. When you reach out to me, I will be in touch with you within 24 hours, so you can message me any time, anywhere. I am available for live sessions over instant messenger, telephone or video chat. When it comes to your treatment, you're in charge - we can communicate in whatever way makes you feel most comfortable. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. I know that together we can overcome any obstacles you are facing and put you on the path to a happier, calmer and more satisfying life. I promise to be right by your side every step of the way on your journey, and that we will work at your pace. I am excited to work with you!

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 Arizona 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.
