Counselors, Psychologists and Therapists for Your Family

Updated by Sarah Blackwell

Many children and teens suffer from anxiety, hyperactivity, depression, and other issues. It is often difficult to get good referrals and information because parents are not always comfortable discussing the problem with others. To assist our readers, we always try to post businesses and services that we, or our readers, personally recommend so that you will know the service is mom-approved. We put out a call for recommendations of local counselors compiled the list below. They are listed alphabetically by last name, and you can receive more information by clicking their website or contacting them directly.

If you have anyone to add or edit, please feel free to email We hope this list will be helpful to many of you. This list will always be available on our Directories Page.
