Online Therapy evaluated highly qualified Dallas therapists to provide 15 top-tier recommendations using eight key factors, including credentials, specializations, availability, cost, and other high-priority features. You can be sure these therapists provide quality care at fair prices and offer qualified therapeutic support.

Choosing the Best Dallas, TX Therapists

Credentials

Credentials prove a therapist has the education and training to provide appropriate mental health care. Professional therapists in Texas must be licensed, which requires a master’s or doctoral degree, supervised postgraduate experience of at least 3,000 hours, and passing the National Counselor Examination and the Texas Jurisprudence Exam.

Accessibility

The focus of a therapist’s practice is key in finding the right one for your personal needs. You must also confirm their availability meshes with your schedule, so ask about office hours and flexible scheduling. All listed therapists offer remote services, which enhances accessibility and makes them even easier to work with.

Cost

The best therapists in Dallas typically charge per session but often have differing costs for individual, couple, family, and group therapy. Many therapists don’t accept insurance, but you may be able to file for reimbursement directly with your carrier. While cost shouldn’t be the deciding factor when choosing a therapist, treatment must be budget-friendly, so some therapists offer a sliding fee scale.
