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!

PROFESSIONAL MISSION My professional mission is to facilitate clients’ ability to live their best lives; to gain clarity on their own vision; and identify/transcend limiting beliefs that may be slowing their progress. Professional counselors should be encouraging, challenging, compassionate, and organized. I support my clients and present myself as an ally. I challenge clients to transcend limiting beliefs and work with them in developing self-efficacy and confidence. THEORETICAL ORIENTATION Being existential/humanistic is my theoretical orientation. As such, I help clients focus on their authenticity and skill development within a respectful, empathic environment. My belief that people have tremendous potential enables me to be optimistic about their possibilities of becoming happy with their lives and I am very respectful of the role I play in their development. EDUCATIONAL AND WORK BACKGROUND I received my Doctorate in Counselor Education from Auburn University, my Master’s of Science in Community Counseling from the University of South Alabama and my Bachelor of Science in Human Development at the University of Alabama. While at Auburn University pursuing the doctorate, I received the national Graduate Student of the Year Award (Glen Hubele) from the American Counseling Association. I published over two dozen research papers in professional peer-reviewed journals and contributed to a book, a book chapter, and encyclopedia entries on various topics of human relations training, human sexuality, and public health. Published work has appeared in professional journals such as the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Southern Medical Journal, The Journal of Counseling and Development, and The Family Journal. I have presented and contributed to more than 80 research presentations at international, national, and regional meetings. My research and evaluation work associated with adolescent pregnancy prevention was supported by a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. My collaborative work with community groups to extend research to facilitate adolescent pregnancy prevention was chosen by the National Campaign to Prevent Teenage Pregnancy as a national case study to demonstrate the effectiveness of promoting science through university/agency collaboration. I retired as Associate Professor in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of South Alabama. I held this appointment since 2007 and now teach counseling students part-time. I have 10 years experience in higher education administration. I joined the Department of Professional Studies in the College of Education as an Assistant Professor in 2001 and earned the rank of associate professor in 2007 with a joint appointment in the College of Education and the School of Continuing Education and Special Programs. Prior to the faculty position, I was Counselor at USA in Counseling and Testing Services. I have maintained a private practice since 1998. In summary, I am licensed in Alabama with 20 + years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & intimacy related issues. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and this in itself is one of your personal strengths. Note: I am licensed in the state of Alabama, United States. I am happy to receive clients from Alabama. I do not offer services to individuals from other states or countries. Ethically, professional counselors are mandated to protect our clients from harm and ensure they are receiving the most appropriate care. If there is a problem in another region, my ability to reach out to help would be severely restricted.

I am licensed in Alabama, Florida and California with many years of professional work experience as a therapist. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, mood instability, overcoming addictions, and healing trauma. Our human condition is one that requires guidance and compassion. Helping my clients elevate out of depression, enduring grief and resolving loss are among the most common services I provide. I work with individuals, couples and families to create a safe space where thoughts and feelings can be explored without fear of judgment. Starting the therapy process, switching therapists, or returning to therapy after a period of time can be challenging. To be vulnerable is to be courageous and to do this often requires help. My skills are designed to help my clients achieve a sense of strength and to have a more consistent state of peace and joy. I do this with a variety of methods. I tailor my model of therapy based on the clients’ needs and individual goals, allowing authentic growth and sustaining mental health. Often simply identifying goals can create immediate shifts in how we think, in turn changing the way we feel. Whether the therapy is brief and efficient to push toward immediate mobility, or the therapy is instead a more long-term plan, depends on my clients’ needs and desires. I am available to help you with your future and therapy process.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Rehobeth area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rehobeth 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 Rehobeth due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

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

While many psychologists in Rehobeth may not take health insurance, some in the state of Alabama may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Alabama you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Rehobeth, Alabama working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. 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. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Rehobeth above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Rehobeth therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Rehobeth 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 lot of people in AL, providers may be booked out with clients.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Rehobeth 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Rehobeth 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Rehobeth, 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.

Rehobeth 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.
