II. The Best Therapists in Tallahassee, FL

Online Therapy chose the best 15 Tallahassee therapists using eight key factors that include clinical specializations, cost, credentials, and other key features. Using this set of criteria, you can be sure to find a mental health professional that’s a good match.

Choosing the Best Tallahassee Therapists

Credentials

All Tallahassee therapists must have approved credentials to offer services and checking these is one of the most reliable ways for a prospective client to learn more about their therapist. In Florida, therapists must hold a master’s degree from a regionally accredited mental health counseling program, complete two years of post-master’s supervised experience, pass the National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination, and complete several shorter courses.

Accessibility

A therapist’s accessibility is crucial, as it determines how easily you’re able to fit therapy into your daily schedule. Factors such as flexible office hours and remote sessions can be a big help, as is having a wide range of specializations to accommodate different kinds of clients.

Cost

It’s important to have a clear understanding of a therapist’s hourly rate before working with them, as it can have a major impact on your budget. Some therapists charge per session, while others have monthly subscription fees. For clients with financial limitations, sliding scale plans and insurance coverage can help.
