II. The Best Therapists in Cleveland, OH

best therapists in Cleveland badge

Online Therapy selected a list of 15 therapists based on eight key factors, including credentials, cost, specializations, and availability. These factors can make it easier to find quality mental health care at a fair price.

Choosing the Best Cleveland, OH Therapists

Credentials

Checking your therapist’s credentials is a crucial first step to determine whether they’re a good fit. In Ohio, therapists are required to have a master’s degree from a clinical mental health program (or a related program), participate in a 240-hour practicum, and pass the 200-question NCE exam. While LPCs don’t need to complete any hours of supervision, LPCCs require at least 3,000 hours of supervised practice.

Accessibility

After you’re sure your therapist has the right credentials, looking at factors, such as office hours, availability for remote sessions, and specializations, is a good idea. You want to find a therapist who is a good match for your needs and is easy to access when you need them.

Cost

The best therapist in Cleveland is one who can meet your mental health needs while still fitting within your budget. Whether your therapist charges per session or has a monthly subscription cost can play a huge factor, as can the range of insurance they accept or the availability of sliding scale options.
