best therapists in MILWAUKEE badge

Online Therapy analyzed all of the top Milwaukee Therapists using eight key factors, including credentials, cost, specializations, availability, and more. The 15 therapists that made our list can offer the support you need at an accessible price.

Choosing the Best Milwaukee, WI Therapists

Credentials

One of the most reliable ways to find a therapist who provides quality care is to check their credentials. In Wisconsin, there are a number of requirements for professional counselors, such as a master’s degree in an accredited program, a criminal background check, passing the National Counselor Examination, and completing thousands of hours of supervised counseling under an established professional.

Accessibility

Forming a trusting relationship with your therapist has as much to do with accessibility as it does the therapist. Keeping a flexible schedule and having the ability to work with a wide range of clients is always an advantage. Therapists were evaluated based on their office hours, ability to provide remote sessions and the number of specializations they offer.

Cost

Seeing a quality therapist shouldn’t be a luxury. The best therapists can give you the care you need while staying within your budget. Therapists were chosen for this list based on their fees, accepted insurance plans, and the sliding scale options they offer.
