II. Choosing the Best Mesa, AZ Therapists

Using eight key factors, including credentials, specializations, availability, cost, and other vital features, Online Therapy evaluated top therapists in Mesa to compile a list of 15 well-rated options. You can be sure these recommended therapists offer quality care at a fair price and will be easy to work with.

Credentials

Credentials provide proof a therapist has the appropriate training and experience. Arizona has strict licensure requirements to ensure Mesa therapists can dispense professional counseling services. Primary requisites include a master’s degree in counseling, 3,200 hours of supervised counseling experience, and passing the National Counselor Examination.

Accessibility

All the Mesa therapists listed offer remote services to enhance accessibility. Combined with flexible scheduling that may include extended office hours, this makes it easier to meet with a therapist on your schedule. Don’t forget to choose a specialized therapist who best supports your mental health needs.

Cost

A final consideration is affordability, especially if you’re on a budget. The recommended Mesa therapists all charge by the session, and a good number of them accept an array of health insurance providers, which may cover the cost of your therapy. A small number offers a sliding scale if you’re paying for therapy yourself.
