About me

Hello and welcome! I’m so glad you’ve decided to start your journey with BetterHelp and invest in yourself. My name is Nate and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in WV and a National Certified Counselor. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have experience working with adolescents and adults in both group and individual settings. My main experience has been working with a high-risk population in a higher education setting for the past 8 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, OCD, financial stress, self-worth, stress management, and overall life transitions. I currently work on Betterhelp in addition to my current therapy job, so feel free to message me about any availability if you aren't able to find something that fits your schedule.

My counseling style is an inviting, individualistic style because no two people are alike. I like to focus on the overall person so that I can best help you out with whatever you are experiencing. My therapeutic approach is a blend between Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy. Overall, my goals are to make sure you are comfortable throughout your counseling experience, challenge any negative or irrational thoughts you may have, and help be a supportive resource for you. I will gladly listen to whatever is on your mind and help determine together what goals to set and the steps needed to get there. Some of those steps may be outside of your comfort zone but the work that you put in will be beneficial for getting you to the place you wish to be at. I also want you to be satisfied with the counseling experience so I'm more than happy to help you get in contact with additional resources or a different counselor if you find that you'd prefer a different therapeutic approach. Your time and energy is very valuable!

I like to think that we are like scales, sometimes we are delicately balanced while other times we might feel like we’re ‘off-kilter’. The one thing we know for certain is that life goes on whether we feel balanced or not. The main thing is to continue moving forward, even when things don’t seem to go quite our way. I’m here to help remind you that you are capable of getting where you want to be, whether it takes a little bit of work or a lot of work. The process will be worth the payout. Let’s start your journey today!

Nate has helped me tremendously through the ups and downs this past year. He fully listens to me with no judgement and provides validation, advise, and resources that are specific for my current need.

Nate is an amazing counselor! I had no idea what to expect from this platform but he has been a saving grace. He truly cares and has even reached out to me when I went a few days without a response to check up and see if everything was going okay. He is super easy to talk to and makes you relaxed and reassured that he is there if you need him. He treats you like a friend and I appreciate that so much.
