One of my greatest pleasures of being a counselor is the honor of witnessing and helping a client along their personal journey to a life worth living. I assist my clients, which include adolescents and adults, to find healthy perceptions of themselves, identify skills, and strengthen their relationships to find peace, hope, and joy. There is no single approach for every client, and I have been trained in a range of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and client centered techniques. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Mississippi. I have a B.A. in Psychology from The University of Memphis. I have been practicing as an outpatient therapist in community and private clinic settings since 2013. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Minnesota, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wisconsin, and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC). I have just recently moved to the sunny Southwest - Albuquerque, New Mexico to be exact! So if you're in MN or WI I'm just an hour behind. :) I look forward to talking with you and helping you on your journey towards the life you want. *she/her

Therapy sessions are for you and will provide a safe and validating place for you to explore who you are and who you want to be.

I can help any person who has difficulty with relationships at home or work. I am available for individuals who feel emotionally overwhelmed and misdirected. My passion is helping others help themselves. I look forward to working together to help you navigate life. Once you have selected to work with me, I will contact you within 24 hours to get started.

I welcome you and commend you for seeking help as I know it can be challenging to do so. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan, having graduated from Western Michigan University with a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have 6 years experience as a therapist. I am also a husband and a father of 3. I have a love for the outdoors and learning new things. I am also an avid fan of hard rock music. I would describe therapy as an organic process, much like a relationship. As with any relationship it takes time to develop and requires honesty and vulnerability on behalf of both parties in order to grow. It can be hard to take that first step and ask for help. My focus is to meet you where you are in your journey and support you as you face life's challenges. I am here to work with you to aid in greater self awareness, utilize strengths to solve problems and discover hope. The process of change can be both challenging and rewarding. I am excited to have the privilege to join you on your path and help you discover the next steps.

You know that person you always see nuzzled up with their favorite book in the corner of the local coffee shop sipping on a latte? That’s me. I’m the type of person who loves simplicity. I thrive off spending time with my husband and two kids. I love having game nights with friends and laughing till my cheeks hurt, studying the Bible, working out until my body feels like mush, and taking road trips to new places. This is me. What you see is what you get. Let’s be real though, life doesn’t always look like butterflies and rainbows. In fact, it can feel like an absolute beating. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing this is one of your “sometimes.” Stress, depression, emptiness, anxiety, and self-judgment are constantly knocking at our doors. It’s the worst, but the good news is it doesn’t have to stay that way. For as long as I can remember, my greatest passion in life has been to help people overcome the lows life presents. I absolutely love helping people. It's not what I do, it's who I am. My goal is to listen and equip you, so you can keep climbing higher in this journey called life. I'd love to chat if you're ready to get out of a valley in your life.

Most of the time, most of us, are just doing the best we can. When we get stuck, it’s due not to inability, rather lack of experience or knowledge. Sometimes we just need to be heard and feel understood. Sometimes, we need to add more skills to our toolbox or see things from a different perspective. Throughout the years of my experience in hospitals and private practice, many advances have been made in the field of psychology. We understand so much more about how our brains work! We’ve developed new techniques and refined old ones to help rewrite new neural pathways, change negative thinking habits and heal emotional trauma. I try to approach each client with total acceptance of where you are and who you are right now. As we explore the issues you are dealing with, I hope to be able to teach you some new, highly effective ways to feel more in control of your emotions, reactions and your life. I use a compassionate, multifaceted approach of cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, EFT and even exercise to empower you to help yourself. I look forward to joining you on your life’s journey. You can do this!!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Willcox. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Willcox, 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 in the Willcox region and in the state of Arizona. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Willcox or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Willcox 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 Willcox 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 Willcox 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Willcox 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 Willcox 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 Willcox 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. 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 85644 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Willcox 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 Willcox.

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 Willcox 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 Willcox 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 Willcox, 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.

Willcox 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 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.
