Orlando Counseling Providing Anxiety, Trauma and Relationship Therapy

Counseling in Orlando

Hi y'all! As an anxiety and trauma therapist providing counseling in Orlando, I wanted to provide this list of free and sliding scale fee counseling services in Orlando as a resource for professionals and for the people in our community. This list includes free counseling in Orlando, as well as counseling offices that offer a sliding scale fee.  This list is not exhaustive and I encourage you to add to the list by leaving a note in the comments section of this article.

I am not affiliated with any of these agencies or practices.  Because programs and funding change frequently, I cannot guarantee that all the details are accurate at the time you read this article. Accurate information is important to me though, so I will do my best to keep this list updated and current. Each time I update the information, I will add "updated date" at the bottom of the article. Please feel free to email if you notice something needs to be updated.
