My name is Arkaya Williams-Abbott and I go by "Kady." I am a licensed therapist in the state of Alabama. In addition to the issues I mentioned above, I have over 29 years of experience working with adult men and women who struggle with substance use disorders (alcoholism and drug addictions) and serious mental illnesses. My counseling approach is client centered and I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change as therapeutic interventions that will help you with the issues you struggle with. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Auburn University and a Master's Degree in Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. There is no doubt that asking for help is hard, however, I think counseling is one of the best gifts one can give to themselves! Together, let's bring clarity to the issues clouding your life. I am an ally.

MARY NORRIS LICSW LICENSED INDEPENDENT CLINICAL SOCIAL WORKER Hi I am Mary! My name is Mary Norris and I am a Licensed independent clinical social worker based in Birmingham Alabama and work with clients statewide via telehealth. I work with adults ages 18 to 100 years of age and specialize in anxiety and stress. I use cognitive behavioral therapy along with acceptance and commitment therapy. I work to help my clients make progress and feel better. My approach to therapy varies based on the needs of each of my clients I work with. I most frequently use cognitive behavioral therapy along with acceptance and commitment therapy. I believe all of these modalities help me build a shared understanding of my client's reality and allow the client and I to channel a path forward. I have discovered that my style and approach is a good fit for my young and older adult clients who may be dealing with life challenges and life transitions .I have found that my clients are wrestling with feelings of depression anxiety and stress. I work with my clients to navigate these changes and to help clients develop skills that will allow them to feel better about themselves and develop a more positive outlook on life. My communication style is calm, empathetic and personable. I wish for all my clients to be comfortable talking with me about any subject and I pride myself on my ability to listen with out being judgmentaI I decided to become a therapist because I have always wanted to help people whether it was volunteering as a candy striper at the local nursing home or being a loyal and trusted friend. It has been natural for me to be drawn to people to help them in difficult times. I enjoy seeing my clients become their personal best. My approach to goal setting is about working together with my clients to help them accomplish goals that they are comfortable with. I will begin by building trust with my clients and help my clients to feel comfortable with being in therapy. I will help clients to set goals and track progress. In our first session my clients can expect that we will be discussing my clients feelings. I will be asking several questions to better understand why my clients feel the way they do. The initial session will be about building a strong connection with my clients and this will help give me a sense on where to guide my clients. Each of my clients are different and I like to listen before I make assumptions. I will work with my clients to help them to know what is best to move forward in their lives.

Are you wanting your relationships to improve? Or to feel more confident at home, school, or at work? Sometimes, managing emotions in healthy ways while navigating life's challenges can feel impossible. I offer a safe, nonjudgmental space for clients to explore problems affecting their lives and work with them to build skills to improve their life functioning and satisfaction. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. I have worked with children, teens, parents and adults in residential, school, and clinic settings.

However, if you choose to explore me as your therapist, I promise to provide a safe space for you.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Eutaw.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Eutaw, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Eutaw region and in the state of Alabama. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Eutaw or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

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

Eutaw 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 Eutaw 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 Eutaw 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 35462 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 Eutaw counselor?

Before seeing your Eutaw 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 Eutaw.

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 Eutaw 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 Eutaw 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 Eutaw, 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.

Eutaw 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.
