Hello. I am Tom WIssert a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama. My experience over the last several years has been with drug and alcohol addictions and the co-occurring issues and causes that go along with these addictions. More recently I have dealt with many different marital and relationship problems from intimacy to communication. Using Motivational Interviewing and Active Listening I have been able to help clients see things from a different perspective and to identify problem thinking. I would describe myself as a behaviorist using a Cognitive Behavioral approach and Person Centered counseling to help client resolve problems. Being a good listener is one of my best skills and using things clients tell me to unlock some deeper issues is a great reward for both the client and myself. I am generally available to clients on weekdays and some weekends if necessary. A goal of mine is a 24 hour message return. I usually check messages throughout the day and return messages before leaving the office.

Hello, I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Alabama. My primary background is working with families and helping guide individuals as they find themselves and their place in this world. After working as a therapist for 15+ years, I moved to Los Angeles and I studied further into psychological research and earned a PhD in psychology. My focus of study was on relationships and connecting with others via online venues. This has broadened my expertise and reignited my passion for counseling with others. Since returning to Alabama, I continue to participate in research and I am also doing what I love - counseling. I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused therapy, and client-centered therapy. The approach I prefer to use is an eclectic style, drawing from multiple therapies as needed and tweaking them to be a best fit for the client in their particular situation. I enjoy working with others and supporting them in their journey as they go through life. I also enjoy exploring insight into core feelings and motivations to better understand behaviors and make lasting changes. I have a faith-based perspective, which I can incorporate into our sessions or not based on your preference. I enjoy researching how people use online spaces, such as games and apps, to meet and develop relationships and support systems. Developing grounded theories and discovering processes is my passion. I am a mom, wife, daughter, mental health advocate, researcher, crafter, gamer, and I love learning about things different from myself and what I know. I am an Enneagram Type 9, INFJ. I enjoy anything new, such as experiences, foods, restaurants, ideas, games, cultures, languages, or activities. My personal style of interacting is non-judgmental, honest, and genuine. I look forward to hearing about the current adventures and challenges that you are in and helping you to develop a plan to live out your most authentic self and get the results you want out of life.

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. I take a client-centered approach, draw from a diverse set of treatment modalities and utilize techniques from CBT, Solution-Focused therapy, motivational-interviewing, mindfulness, EMDR, TF-CBT, and DBT.

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

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 Taylor, 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. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Taylor or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Taylor 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 Taylor 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 Taylor 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 Taylor, 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 Taylor 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. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Taylor helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Taylor therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. 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 Taylor 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 Taylor 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. 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 36301 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Taylor 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 Taylor 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 Taylor, 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.

Taylor 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.
