I am a licensed therapist in California with over 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, dating and relationships, family conflicts, parenting issues, and anger management. I will tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs. You are being very brave and strong to face and share your issues and to seek help. If you were to not do this, your problems may not improve. Seeking therapy gives you a good chance to succeed and move past your current challenges. Now a little bit about the therapy we can do together: I have an eclectic approach. That is, I utilizes different modalities with different clients, depending on what is best for them personally. Often I use what's called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Briefly, this is identifying how your distressing thoughts create the troubling feelings you are feeling which lead to the behaviors you are probably doing. We will start by listing your goals for therapy, and there will also be homework such as journaling and graphing. I have used these methods to overcome my own problems, so I know they work. Finally, here's a little bit more about me: I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), licensed to work as a mental health therapist in California. I am a slightly older therapist (59-years-old); in other words, I've lived long enough to help many people and to see a lot of what life can offer us, both positive and negative. I am a straight man, married, and have over 10 years of clinical social work and therapy experience. As both a social worker and therapist, I am qualified to work using a large variety of modalities (techniques) and to address a variety of issues. I hope to hear back from you and begin working with you soon. And, of course, please remember that if for any reason you don't feel comfortable working with me, it's easy to switch therapists, and BetterHelp has a large number of therapists from which you can choose.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Fremont. 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 Fremont, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Fremont region and in the state of California. 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 Fremont 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.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Fremont 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 Fremont 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 Fremont 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 Fremont may not take health insurance, some in the state of California 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 California 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 Fremont?

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

Fremont 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 Fremont therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Fremont therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

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

Before seeing your Fremont 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 Fremont.

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 Fremont 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 Fremont 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 Fremont, California 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.

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.
