Counseling

We all go through seasons of overwhelm, but there comes a time when stress starts to interfere with our lives. That's a huge indication that you should speak to a therapist.

 

If you can’t immediately seek professional guidance face to face, and you're without friends or family support, call one of the crisis hotlines on our Crisis Support page.

Below you will find private practices based on the city nearest you, in addition to county support services. This list a jumping-off point to find a therapist that is a good fit for you. Be patient and kind to yourself. We're so happy you're here, and proud of you towards taking a step to get the support you deserve.
