II. The Best Therapists in Honolulu, HI

best therapists in Honolulu badge

Therapists were evaluated according to eight criteria. These included credentials, qualifications, specializations, office hours, and cost. Online Therapy prepared a list of 15 recommended therapists who offer the best in terms of care, support, and therapy at a fair price.

Choosing the Best Honolulu, HI Therapists

Credentials

Hawaiian therapists must meet stringent requirements. These include a bachelor’s degree in a counseling field, a master’s degree in counseling or a related field, and at least two years’ supervised experience. Therapists must pass the National Counselor Examination before being allowed to register to practice. Therapists’ credentials usually indicate their primary field of counseling.

Accessibility

Apart from choosing a therapist with appropriate specializations, investigate their accessibility. Are their offices close by, and do they offer teletherapy? If you’re working, do they offer counseling after hours or during weekends?

Cost

Therapy cost is a crucial consideration. Studies indicate you normally need several weeks of therapy to achieve a satisfactory result, especially for deep-seated issues like depression and addiction. Some therapists offer therapy packages covering a number of sessions; others charge per session. If you’re insured, does your policy cover therapy and for how long? Alternatively, discuss your financial situation with the therapist and see if they will offer you discounted treatment.
