II. Choosing the Best Aurora, CO Therapists

A primary factor in finding the right therapist is whether you can work well together, but you also want someone who provides quality mental health care at a fair price. Online Therapy evaluated top-ranking therapists in Aurora to compile this list of 15 trusted counselors using eight key factors, including availability, credentials, cost, and specializations.

Credentials

Professional credentials are a therapist’s proof that they’re appropriately trained to provide quality care. In Colorado, therapists must be licensed, which includes earning a master’s or doctoral degree with 700 hours of supervised professional practice. Postgraduate requirements include 2,000 hours of experience, 100 hours of supervision, and passing two examinations.

Accessibility

Aurora therapists increase their accessibility by offering flexible scheduling, which may include extended office hours. The best therapists in Aurora offer remote services for increased accessibility. You should also confirm that a therapist’s focus matches your personal mental health needs.

Cost

Cost alone shouldn’t be your deciding factor but it can be a budgetary concern. Aurora therapists typically charge per session, and may accept insurance. If you’re concerned about your ability to pay for therapy, ask prospective therapists if they offer a sliding fee schedule or discount, which they don’t always advertise.
