Clients sometimes ask for help seeking out therapy for their own personal reasons (even when it is not court ordered or required in their case). My best recommendation is:
- LOCAL - Seek out a local therapist. Some people interact much better with therapy in-person rather than online. If you know you are likely to fall into this category, there really isn't a substitute for in-person therapists. The downside is some locations have no availability, or even worse, it becomes clear to you after your first meeting that the available therapist will not be a "good fit" for you. You really need someone who will fit into your personality.
- ONLINE - https://www.betterhelp.com/ is a great resource. This is online therapy, but you have such more flexibility in this platform. You can text, call, or video chat with your therapist. Costs average from $60 to $100 a week, it seems. The biggest benefit is they have a ton of therapists available, so if your assigned therapist isn't a good fit, you can just ask for a new one!
