Coolidge is a small, quiet community but it has been home to some big names, such as Waylon Jennings, the famous country western singer and songwriter. Waylon Jennings wrote his songs from a place of experience and his own life, and it is easy to be empathetic with his lyrics. Life is not always a song, and sometimes it may seem as though music alone is not enough to bolster the spirit.

If you have fallen on hard times and can find no solace, Coolidge-area counselors can help. They can help you examine your life and goals and work toward a lasting happiness. If you are struggling, contact a therapist today.

Hello, I am Carrie Appleby Kittle, a dully licensed independent therapist with over 20-plus-years’ experience. I hold a license for ‘Professional Counseling’ and ‘Independently Licensed Substance Abuse Counseling’ with the state of Arizona. I have worked successfully with a kaleidoscope of people from various ages along the life-cycle continuum, from birth to elderly, couples, families, veterans, various cultures, race and genders. I have worked in various settings including inpatient and outpatient, in community-based clinics, residential facilities, hospital settings, state agencies, contractual work with the state, as well as tribal health agencies, educational settings, including elementary, middle school, high school and universities both in-person and through teletherapy/health platforms. This has given me a very diverse experience, and a wealth of insight to individuals and groups. I am posted on Linked-in should you wish to view my vitea/resume. I consider myself an eclectic therapist and generally draw on one or more theories of psycho-therapy including: cognitive, behavioral, somatic, motivational, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic, rational emotive, dialectical, holistic, gestalt, and existential therapy with the common thread of motivational interviewing techniques and always client centered used throughout all sessions. My goal has always been and will always be to provide a safe and healthy setting for you to improve your quality of life and rise above any and all challenges you are experiencing. We all have various times in our lives find ourselves challenged by different situations at different times in our lives with education, family/relationships, social connections, work relations, job challenges, traumatic experiences, cognitive impairments, financial stressors, health, overwhelming feelings, that disrupt our ability to work thought things by ourselves. Sometimes we develop other symptoms that cause us to suffering; like depression, anxiety, PTSD, bi-polar, TBI, disruption in attention and thought processing, ADD/ADHD, substance use disorders and many others that can plague us as we try and navigate our way along the path that best fits us to find peace and joy. I very much enjoy learning from my client’s as well; about your cultural, experience and beliefs that I believe are beneficial and core to helping you help yourself. The answers are in you to discover. I have many years’ experiences in working with various Dine’ peoples as well. This has not only allowed me to have insight and connection to understanding Indigenous peoples, but others from other communities other than my own as well. I pride myself on not only having “book learning” but ability to have insight from my own personal experiences and that that has been gained from my experiences in sharing the journeys of others. Our experiences might be different, but there is always common ground to find understanding and compassion with our feelings and thoughts. It is always an honor when someone, or families who allow(s) me to walk with them on their path to provide support while they work though their challenges. It is very rewarding to see individuals find peace and happiness. This is the biggest payoff for me being a counselor. I believe we are meant to support and help one another as a part of our natural make up. Like Wolves, we are pack animals with a complex social system and ongoing growth and learning though development thought our life. The final can only be written after we expire and then an only then, I believe we have “become” our true self at our full potential. It is the respect I have for myself that I am in turn about to understand and respect and honor you. I think this is beautiful. I’m excited to be part of the Betterhelp network as it provides a great opportunity to reach others who might not otherwise may not be able to get the counseling wanted or needed. Should you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me and ask. I look forward to meeting you; learning about you and supporting you to find success in your current journey.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge may not take health insurance, some in the state of Arizona 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 Arizona 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 Coolidge, Arizona 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 AZ, 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 85128 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge 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 Coolidge, Arizona 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.

Coolidge 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.
