I am a licensed clinical professional counselor and a national certified clinical counselor. I completed my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision with an emphasis in marriage and family studies at Kansas State University. I have worked as a counselor for over 10 years in many settings which include, corrections, military, hospital, college, mental health agency and private practice. I have worked with all types of clients experiencing depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anger, personality disorders and substance and alcohol abuse. My desire in therapy is to see individuals, couples, and families restored and healthy in every area of their lives.
I use an integrative approach to therapy. My primary treatment approach is client-centered therapy. I find this approach beneficial because it helps to establish and maintain a strong therapeutic relationship. Additionally, I am a trained EMDR therapist, a Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Specialist (CCBTS), and I utilize attachment approaches in my work with individuals, families, and couples who are experiencing distress in their interpersonal relationships.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Ophelia Blackwell. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dr. Blackwell is amazing. She is teaching me how to view life from my kids perspectives and therefore I’m able to better relate and respond to them. Thank you so much!
She is amazing. I thought this would not work and would be a big waste of time and money. I was wrong it's saving my marriage and my life.
Dr. Blackwell is absolutely phenomenal!!!! Words can't even begin to describe how great she is! Right off the bat she has been very supportive and provides logical advice in many different aspects of life. Without her I don't believe I would have been able to change my view on life as much as I already have in this short period of time. I give her the biggest heartfelt thank you as one could possibly give!!
She's proffessional, friendly and down to earth.
Dr. Blackwell is very down to earth and caring! I feel that I have made so much progress on the issues that we have been working through.
She is incredible! I truly feel like she hears me and understands my issues, and is more than equipped to help me work through them. On a rare occasion that she misinterpreted something I was trying to say, I rephrased it, she got it, and was humble. She reflected on it and used that new info to help me. She is not prideful to the point of being so insistent on an ineffective measure that she won’t try anything else or step back to try and truly understand. She has a plethora of resources to help that she has sent me and that we have then discussed in sessions. Woman knows what she’s doing. I can’t speak high enough praises of her.
Ophelia Blackwell has been very helpful in getting me to think through issues. She is available, quick to respond, and communicates well.
