Alexander City is known for its Martin Dam and Lake Martin which was the largest man-made lake of its time back in 1926; as well as the Horseshoe Bend National Military Park. The park honors Major General Andrew Jackson’s battle on the Tallapoosa River which ended the Creek War and turned Andrew Jackson into a military hero.

24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Thank you for visiting my profile! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Certified Integrative Mental Health Professional. I am licensed in the states of Alabama and North Carolina and I am an approved out-of-state telemental health provider for Florida. I work with individuals facing issues including but not limited to: PTSD/trauma, adjustment/transitional stress, anxiety/depression, interpersonal/relational, and sociocultural/identity struggles. With over 29 combined years of working in the mental health field in a variety of public, private, and virtual settings, I integrate systemic, holistic, neuro-biopsychosocial, and, traditional psychotherapeutic approaches to assist you in your journey toward emotional and relational healing and balance. My style is relaxed, reflective, casual, conversational, compassionate, and creative. I am naturally empathic and intuitive and my hope is that these traits assist with alleviating anxiety about the counseling experience. I invite you to ask questions if you have any questions about me or my approach in order for you to make an informed decision about what is best for you on this brave healing journey you have chosen to pursue. Additional info: *I have a pretty quick response time if you send me a message. However, messages will most likely be returned in the early morning and late evening hours (Central/US time). Although I may respond over a weekend, I cannot ensure that will always be the case. *I require at least the first live session to be a video session. Using phone (audio-only) and live chat(text-only) options can be used for future sessions as long as it seems clinically appropriate. *The availability you see is not the only availability I have. Because I do have a private practice in addition to working with BetterHelp, I needed to create an availability calendar that would not likely lead to an accidental double booking. Feel free to ask about a time slot that is not listed. I do not have availability options after 2:00 pm (CST), but I do offer early morning and weekend morning availability. *While I cannot guarantee a specific appointment day/time each week, I do try to offer a predictable, recurring appointment schedule for you when I can so it helps with consistency. *I absolutely love what I do! Counseling is not and has never been just a "job" for me. By nature, I am a helper and an encourager. I love empowering others to find and be the best version of themselves and to learn skills in the area of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-advocacy while still on a path of self-improvement, growth, awareness, and getting out of the rut of a comfort zone that has interfered with individual, relational, or career success. I appreciate that BetterHelp allows for opportunities to engage/encourage/empower/provide psychoeducation in between sessions which is often difficult to do in traditional therapy settings. *BetterHelp has journaling features for the clients and worksheet features for the therapist that can be assigned. There may be times I might assign some in-between session "homework", though not always in journaling/worksheet form. Sometimes it's an observational task or an opportunity to implement a skill we might be exploring in sessions. This will help keep you focused, prepared, and possibly less emotionally overwhelmed about the inner work you are doing by having an outlet of expression that still accomplishes the inner goals you have for yourself. It's also a great way for you to feel successful and empowered! Any task or homework or expressive outlet assigned will depend on your unique situation and the goals you have set for yourself. *As a licensed therapist, I am required by law to obtain your full name, date of birth, contact information, consent for counseling, and verify photo ID. I am unable to work with anonymous clients. *Consent is given when you review and accept the member information form prior to our first appointment. Your full name, contact information, date of birth, and photo ID can be sent as a secure message on the platform or I can obtain that information during our first session. I am happy to answer any questions regarding this process. * I encourage you to upload a headshot photo of yourself in the profile picture because there may be times I have clients that have the same first name and it helps me remember who is who when appointments are scheduled. *If you are experiencing recent and/or frequent and/or intrusive thoughts of harming yourself or others, this platform is not designed for these types of cases. Please seek emergency or crisis assistance, or off-line therapy in your local area. Again, if you have any questions for me to assist you with making an informed decision about your counseling experience and therapeutic goals, please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to working with you!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama with over 20 years of experience. I've always had a desire to help people even as a little girl. My motto in life is "How can I help?" I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including substance abuse, anger issues, parenting/co-parenting problems, relationship issues, intimate partner violence, anxiety, depression, and physical/psychological trauma. My therapy style is direct and interactive. I believe in building rapport in order to establish the therapeutic alliance within the first few weeks of therapy. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, and genuineness. I prefer a variety of approaches to treatment such as cognitive-behavior therapy, solution focused therapy, and person-centered treatment just to mention a few. However, the approach selected will meet the individual exactly where they are. Treatment plans' goals and objectives are formulated based on the individual’s strengths, needs, abilities, and preferences. It takes strength and courage to invest in a more fulfilling and happier life. Thinking for a change will assist in gaining a new perspective and outlook. So if you are ready to take that step, then I ask, "How can I help?"

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Alexander City?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Alexander City therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Alexander City therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Alexander City therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Alexander City therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in AL, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Alexander City counselor?

Before seeing your Alexander City therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Alexander City.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Alexander City licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Alexander City counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Alexander City, Alabama can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Alexander City has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
