II. Choosing the Best Omaha, NE Therapists

To identify the top 15 therapists in the Omaha region, Online Therapy considered eight key variables: credentials, patient feedback, accessibility, and affordability. The therapists on this list had strong scores across all categories.

Credentials 

Ensuring that the therapist you choose has the proper credentials is vital for getting the mental health care you need. In Omaha and Nebraska as a whole, professional counselors are required to complete an accredited degree program in counseling or a related field. As part of their degree program, they must complete an internship of at least 300 hours, including 150 hours of working directly with clients under supervision.

Accessibility 

Therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution and getting effective mental health services depends on finding a therapist that’s experienced in dealing with the issues you face. The following therapists were selected for their range of specializations, as well as the accommodations they make to provide services that fit clients’ busy schedules, such as telehealth services or sessions outside of traditional business hours.

Cost 

Many therapists accept health insurance or have sliding fee schedules for self-pay clients to make mental health services affordable. Some therapists may also provide subscription fees that are lower than per-session costs, making it financially feasible to attend regular sessions.
