Trust is one of the most crucial aspects of a therapy relationship. Online Therapy evaluated therapists using eight key factors, including specializations, credentials, cost, availability, and other pertinent features to ensure they offer quality care at a fair price. These15 therapists are some of the best therapists in Wichita and come highly recommended. 

Credentials

Appropriate credentials prove a therapist merits your trust. To become a licensed professional counselor, applicants must receive a master’s or doctoral degree in counseling that includes a supervised internship and pass a nationally standardized competency exam. Licensed clinical counselors must complete 4,000 hours of supervised professional experience and pass another exam.

Accessibility

Credentials and trust are key in finding the best therapist in Wichita for your specific needs. Accessibility is also vital to ensure it’s convenient to see them on your schedule, so compare office hours and scheduling flexibility. All the therapists listed also offer remote services to make it easier to work with them.

Cost

Although you shouldn’t choose a therapist based solely on cost, their services must be budget-friendly. Wichita therapists charge per session for individual, couple, family, and group sessions.
