My name is Kathy Reynolds. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I attended Harding University and graduated with my B.A. in Psychology and my M.S. in Counseling. I have 23 years of experience in the mental health field. I primarily treat adults who are suffering from depression, anxiety, trama, PTSD, relationship issues, grief, bipolar disorder, and personality disorder. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Techniques to work with individuals. I also draw from various theories because every patient that I come in contact with is very different and it is important to look at the big picture in therapy and not just get tied down to one theory. I practice a great deal of Humanistic Theory, Systems Theory, DBT, Dr. Sue Johnson with couples, and Positive Psychology. I do believe that clients are inherently good and have the ability to change. I also specialize in working with domestic violence survivors and cancer survivors and their families. I believe that every client I treat deserves respect and has the ability to empower themselves to meet their individual life goals. I love what I do and I love every patient that I have the privilege of walking alongside.

My name is Letitia Trent and I am an Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Arkansas. I hold a degree from Naropa University in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Psychotherapy, which means my techniques are grounded in moment-to-moment awareness, unconditional positive regard, and a belief that the client-therapist relationship is meant to meet the client where they are. I have worked with clients with a wide variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, mood regulation issues, life transitions, trauma, eating disorders, self harm, and grief. As a therapist, my technique is grounded in mindfulness, not only as a technique for the client, but as a way of being. I like to create a warm, empathetic environment where clients feel heard and safe enough to explore difficult personal material. In addition to mindfulness, my therapy includes elements of Gestalt therapy, client-centered therapy, and attachment theory. I know that beginning therapy can be challenging, so I applaud the courage of any clients who take that step. I look forward to working with you!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with over 9 years of counseling experience and 20+ years of mental health experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, psychosis, attention, substance abuse, and trauma. My counseling style is gentle and non-directive while assisting clients to develop their own paths to positive changes in their lives. I will not chastise or talk down to clients; however, I will challenge their irrational thoughts and inconsistencies, but in a non-confrontational manner that does not leave the client thinking he or she is attacked. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, humanistic, and rational-emotive therapy to facilitate self-awareness so the client is empowered to change. I believe treating a person is more important than treating a diagnosis which allows me to listen to the client’s subjective concerns. The majority of people will work towards better emotional health, but often they do not know how to do that. If you are ready to begin a journey to feeling better about yourself and life, I am ready to guide and support you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Humphrey 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 Humphrey 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 Humphrey may not take health insurance, some in the state of Arkansas 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 Arkansas 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 Humphrey, Arkansas 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 Humphrey 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.

You can also try a Humphrey 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 Humphrey 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 AR, 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 Humphrey 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 Humphrey 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 Humphrey, Arkansas 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.

Humphrey 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.
