II. Choosing the Best Tampa, FL Therapists

Online Therapy assessed highly-rated Tampa therapists on eight key factors, including credentials, cost, specializations, and availability, to select Tampa’s top 15 therapists. These key factors help ensure that you receive the high-value counseling you need to overcome your mental health challenges at a fair price.

Credentials

You’ll want to ensure that any therapist you see has credentials and experience in the type of therapy you need. All of the therapists on this list have met Florida’s stringent licensing requirements. In Florida, counselors must obtain a master’s degree and complete 1,500 hours of supervised patient work.

Accessibility

Therapy should be convenient, and it’s essential to choose a therapist who has appointment options that fit into your busy schedule. Accessibility options, such as flexible appointment hours and remote sessions, make it easier to connect with your therapist when you need them the most.

Cost

While cost shouldn’t be your main criteria when searching for a therapist, staying within your budget will ensure that you can afford all of the counseling sessions you need.  Many Tampa therapists accept insurance for their services, and some provide a sliding fee scale if you’re uninsured.
