II. The Best Therapists in Baltimore, MD

best therapists in Baltimore badge

For therapy to be effective, you must feel safe and comfortable with your mental health provider. Online Therapy looked for top therapists in Baltimore who rated well on eight key factors, including cost, availability, specializations, and credentials, to compile a list of 15 high-quality counselors who provide fairly priced and accessible therapeutic support.

Choosing the Best Baltimore, MD Therapists

Credentials

Individual states establish licensure standards to ensure you can trust a professional therapist’s credentials. In Maryland, prospective therapists must earn Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor or Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor credentials from the Maryland State Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists before they can practice, which requires specific education and experience.

Accessibility

Therapists who offer flexible office hours, including evenings and weekends, make it easier to work with them around your own schedule. Most of the featured therapists listed also offer remote services to assist with accessibility, which is especially important if their office isn’t conveniently located.

Cost

Most Baltimore therapists charge per session, but some bundle sessions at a discounted rate. Many work with health insurance providers and may offer a sliding fee scale to work with your budget. If you need counseling, you can’t afford to miss out on avenues that could help cover the cost.
