Online therapy in Sacramento

Online therapy in Sacramento can be a good choice for busy people who don’t have time to go out and meet a therapist in person.

Most therapists offer phone sessions but some prefer private video chat instead. Video chatting is an excellent way to connect with your therapist from the comfort of your own home or an internet cafe without committing to daily appointments at their office. It’s also really convenient to do therapy and counseling online because you can schedule your appointments around your work schedule.

The therapists on our list offer sessions via phone, video chat or a combination of both so there’s something for everyone.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Mental Health in Sacramento

The Sacramento area is number one in California for mental health condition statistics. The Sacramento County Behavioral Health Services department has stated that the number of reported cases of depression and anxiety in the county has increased drastically in recent years. Disproportionately, the rates of depression and anxiety for children are even higher than those rates for adults. The Behavioral Health Services Department estimates that there are at least 1,350 children who suffer from depression or an anxiety disorder.

The number of people who have committed suicide in Sacramento is also increasing. 12 people per 100,000, which is 10 more than the state average. Suicide rates are calculated by county, not taking neighborhood demographics into account. This information may be surprising to some residents of certain neighborhoods that are usually seen as “safer” or less depressed overall.


One possible factor for this increase in mental health condition statistics is the large homeless population of Sacramento. The percentage of homeless youth has increased from 4% to 9%. The lack of access to quality healthcare and resources available at the federal level means that many young people are having their conditions go untreated or undiagnosed.
