Having to face difficult challenges is an expected aspect of life. However, feeling overwhelmed or consumed by these challenges can cause negative feelings such as stress, anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. These feelings can negatively impact your ability to function well and can interfere with your overall quality of life. Many people experience these negative feelings, and it is okay to seek and utilize resources that can assist you during difficult times. Counseling is my passion, and if I can assist someone in overcoming a difficult challenge, then I have fulfilled my purpose. As a counselor, it is my goal to help you achieve your self-determined goals while providing opportunities for problem solving and growth. With the use of therapeutic interventions, I intend to provide guidance in helping individuals gain self-awareness, clarity, and understanding in one’s life views and choices. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. I use person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques when helping individuals, but I primarily use evidence-based techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused counseling. It will be my pleasure helping you live your best life.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama with over 16 years of experience. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and children as well as couples and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting problems, and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma or emotional abuse. My counseling style is laid back and interactive as I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused counseling. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My approach is to help individuals achieve their goals by identifying their strengths and what coping skills can be the most beneficial. I work very hard to ensure that every person feels safe and comfortable in each session. Counseling continues to have a stigma that doesn't allow everyone to feel free to talk about their thoughts and feelings. My hope is that you can feel empowered and more in control of your situation. You have taken the first step in becoming a healthier and happier person and I look forward to helping you in anyway I can!

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!

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

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

Moulton 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 Moulton 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 Moulton 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.

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

Before seeing your Moulton 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 Moulton.

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 Moulton 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 Moulton 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 Moulton, 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.

Moulton 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.
