10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to determine if we may be a good therapeutic match. I will share some background information so you can get to know me better. I am originally from the Midwest however I have called Arizona home for nearly 15 years. I have ten years of experience in my field and have worked in a variety of settings. I obtained my original licence (LMSW) in 2015 through the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health and have since superseded to (LCSW) which allows for independent clinical practice. I earned my bachelors degree in 2011 and my masters degree from ASU in 2012 through the Advanced Standing Program. I am experienced in working with individuals who have undergone various traumas such as domestic violence, physical and emotional abuse, abandonment, grief/loss, extreme poverty, as well as those who struggle with depression, anxiety, ADHD, mood disorders, and many other concerns. I have always had a passion for helping others who are suffering for any reason. I have been described as down to earth, easy to connect with, empathetic, and goal oriented. My counseling style is authentic, strengths based, and nonjudgmental. I tend to take a holistic approach and believe mental health is just as important as physical health. Every single person goes through difficult times. We were not put on this earth to go through difficult times alone. I believe everyone has a purpose and is entitled to respect, dignity, and compassion. I am experienced in a wide range of therapeutic techniques and tend to individualize treatment based on specific needs. Since we all have unique needs and situations, I do not have a cookie cutter approach to treatment. I will collaborate with you to create a treatment plan that meet your needs. You have already taken an important step in researching options to heal and/or cope with what you are going through. If you live in Arizona and are ready to get the ball rolling I am here to support and empower you. You do not have to go through it on your own. Seeking help when you need it is one of the most courageous things a person can do. I am typically available weekdays 9-3. Better help allows for sessions up to 45 minutes. I am able to accommodate some requests for appointment times outside of my posted schedule on some occasions. In order to provide quality care in accordance with the licensing board and my professions code of ethics I will ask for your identifying information before providing treatment. (Betterhelp is international and does not share your information with counselors-and every state has different requirements). This remains in HIPAA compliance and I will not contact you outside of better help unless an emergency requires me to do so. This is for safety and documentation guidelines. You can review my licensing information on the AZ board of behavioral health website: www.azbbhe.us Please reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you! Always call 911 in an emergency. You can call the 24/7 crisis line at 602-222-9444 for urgent mental health needs that do not require 911.

40 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed psychologist in both Arizona and California and have over 40 years experience as a Clinical Psychologist with a specialty practice in neuropsychology/medical psychology. I am board certified nationally which less than 10% of licensed psychologists have obtained. My PhD is from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and my internship was in Medical Psychology from the Washington University School of Medicine. Both programs were APA-approved. I have been the Director of Pediatric Psychology for Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Assistant Director of a Family Medicine Residency Program in Scottsdale Arizona, and held multiple appointments at the University of Arizona School of Medicine in the Departments of Pediatric, Family & Community Medicine and Orthopedics (chronic pain issues) before retiring 2 years ago and selling my private practice. I was also Director of a large internal Employee Assistance Program for the hospital system (10,000 employees plus their dependents), for 20 years, and very familiar with life/work balance and corporate stress. My therapy style is eclectic and wide ranging depending upon the age, needs and individual (or families) temperament. I specialize in short-term solution based problem solving coupled with informational/educational supplements as needed. I have always told folks there is a wide range to normal (I am extremely tolerant of different lifestyles and very non-judgmental) but if it is not working for you let's find a way to change it up. I have also found all it sometimes takes is a 10% change to make a 100% improvement.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Somerton 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 Somerton 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 therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Somerton 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.

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

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

Somerton 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 Somerton 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 Somerton 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.

With a lot of people in AZ, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Somerton 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 Somerton.

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 Somerton 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 Somerton 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 Somerton, 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.

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.
