II. The Best Therapists in Fort Worth, TX

Online Therapy used eight key factors to choose the top 15 Fort Worth therapists. Credentials, availability, cost, specializations, and other key features were all taken into consideration. These elements help ensure that regardless of which therapist you choose, they’ll be easy to work with and offer the quality care you need.

Choosing the Best Fort Worth Therapists

Credentials

When choosing your therapist, taking the time to check credentials is a good way to know whether they are equipped to deliver the best mental health services. In Texas, therapists are required to obtain a master’s degree in counseling or a related field, complete a 300-hour internship and 3,000 hours of supervised practice, and pass the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification and the Texas Jurisprudence Exam.

Accessibility

While many therapists have the necessary credentials, they might not be able to meet your accessibility needs. Online Therapy evaluated therapist accessibility based on the number of specializations they have, as well as their office hours and scheduling flexibility.

Cost

Whether you’re working within a budget or just looking to get the most for your money, you’ll want to ensure that your therapist offers rates you can afford. Some offer per-session rates, while others have monthly subscription fees. You’ll also want to make sure your therapist is covered under your insurance plan, and if not, explore sliding scale payment options.
