15 years of experience as a therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of therapy experience. My therapeutic approach to counseling is holistic and strength based. Holistic meaning that we, as individuals, are made up of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social strengths. When one or more of these “strengths” become weak, (from internal or external factors) we may suffer from depression, anxiety, and/or other stress related issues. My job as a therapist is to help you find your inner strengths and develop new ones to “re-balance” your life! When we are balanced, we are strong and whole!

My name is Catherine Job and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas and Alabama. I have a Master’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Business Administration. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, and family conflict. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ clients, clients with AIDS/HIV, Veterans and First responders. My approach to therapy is client centered which means that I believe therapy is a collaboration between the client and the therapist. I ask clients to identify what their goals are for therapy. I use cognitive behavioral approaches in sessions to help clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are all connected. Once a client understands these, they can move towards making changes and living an emotionally healthier and happier life. My clients have described me as very approachable, nonjudgmental and empathetic. I am available to my clients Monday through Friday for either 30- minute or 45-minute video sessions. I will send you the consent forms after you sign up for a session and these can be completed and returned through the portal. I ask my clients to take what they learn in sessions and practice it outside of sessions. My contact with my clients outside of session is primarily for scheduling and the sending of handouts and worksheets. I will respond to client emails within a 24-hour time frame during the week and on Monday for messages left on weekends. I believe in helping my client establish a good work/life balance and practice this myself by using weekends to “re-energize” so I can give 100% to my clients during sessions. In the event of a mental health emergency or crisis situation, clients should call 911 or go to their nearest emergency room. You have taken a courageous first step for your mental health by seeking therapy services and I look forward to working with you.

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kellyton 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 Kellyton due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy.

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

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

Before seeing your 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 Kellyton.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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 Kellyton 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 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 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 professional 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 Kellyton, 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.

Kellyton 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?

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.
