Therapists were analyzed based on availability, cost, credentials, practice concentration, and other essential elements to ensure they’d be easy to work with while providing quality mental health care at a reasonable rate.

Choosing the Best San Antonio, TX Therapists

Credentials

Credentials are a key factor because they validate a therapist’s education, training, and experience.

Post-graduation, applicants must complete 3,000 hours of supervised counseling experience and pass two examinations.

Accessibility

A therapist must be accessible, meaning their office hours should mesh with your schedule. Look for flexible scheduling, especially evening and weekend hours. The therapists on this list offer remote services to make it easier to meet on your time. You should confirm that their specializations match your mental health needs.

Cost

Affordability ensures a therapist’s fees work with your budget. Many of these San Antonio therapists work with numerous insurance providers, which may help you cover your costs. You’ll also find several that offer a sliding fee scale or some type of discount for self-pay clients.
