5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome! My name is Jennifer and I am a licensed professional counselor and certified rehabilitation counselor. Eight years in the mental health field has exposed me to many wonderful people in a variety of settings. My professional experience began in residential group homes and then out-patient care. I have most experience working with people who have anxiety, depression, complex trauma, schizophrenia, and intellectual disabilities. For the past nine years, I have volunteered as a mentor for people who are incarcerated through a national Bible study outreach program. Perhaps the most important lesson I have learned is that, each person already possesses gifts and talents to overcome even the bleakest circumstance. My passion is to help you uncover the emotional gifts that may have been buried under the corrosion of negativity. This lesson drives me to learn more about each person I am fortunate to meet. I strive to always provide a supportive environment as we work together. At times, I will ask difficult questions that are designed to spur your growth and development to the next level. I provide worksheets and information sheets throughout out our time together to help you learn more about anxiety, depression, and emotional well-being. These also help you discover more about yourself. They are part of our therapeutic work together, take a relatively short amount of time to answer, provide meaningful information, and are at no extra cost to you. I do expect the worksheets to be completed. This world is rapidly changing, and this can become overwhelming for many. I believe in planning for tomorrow but celebrating victories and examining defeats on a day by day basis. We can work through emotions, concerns, and often discover root causes to break the power they hold over you. I know there is a great need for LGBTQ counselors. However, I do not have training in LGBTQ issues and can't provide treatment as it is outside my scope of practice. My role as therapist, is to guide and walk with you along your pathway. Using your values and your priorities as the road map to YOUR success. My primary approach is a client-centered approach with motivational interviewing, CBT and/or EMDR incorporated. I always tailor the treatment to your needs. These are your sessions; I will use my training and experience to help guide you along your journey. Each discussion will promote development of the terrific qualities you already possess in order to help you flourish! Any time you have questions in general or the about the process, please let me know.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Allgood therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Allgood due to a higher cost of living.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Allgood 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.

Allgood 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 Allgood 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 Allgood 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 35013 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Allgood 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 Allgood.

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 Allgood 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 Allgood 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 Allgood, 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.

Allgood 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.
