Hello and Welcome to BetterHelp! Have you been feeling stuck and hopeless in the intrusive, unwanted, repetitive and distressing thoughts, feelings, images, sensations or urges? Feeling the compulsion perform endless rituals, or engaging avoidance, mental rumination, or reassurance seeking behaviors to relieve the uncertainty? You are looking at Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). OCD has held you hostages, has been affecting your school, work, life and relationship with others. It has prevented you from living a full life. It's time for you to stare OCD in the face, "You don't get to control my life. I will break your OC cycles at the weakest link and claim back my life!" I provide psychoeducation about OCD and help creating exposure hierarchy. I provide coaching for you to break Obsessive Compulsive cycles (OC cycles) using Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Since OCD is all about uncertainty, we will start by learning coping strategies to manage anxiety, regulate emotion, and tolerate distress before facing your fear. You have made it this far on your own, I believe you can do even better. With knowledge, tools, skills, and practice, you will be able to face your fear, resist the compulsion, learn to live with uncertainty, and no longer let OCD control your life. I look forward to working with you.

I am your neighborhood therapist. I’m straightforward and matter-of-fact. I have no judgment and seek to assist you in understanding your patterns as well as increasing your understanding of yourself and the world around you. Therapy can help guide you towards creating the connection to self and to others which may be blocked by past, present, or future issues. I see therapy as a conversation and a safe space to explore your thoughts and possibilities. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups of clients age 3 to 65 with issues ranging from anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, dysfunctional family dynamics, couples issues, domestic violence, child abuse, and transitional life stressors. I have 19 years of experience working in the field of counseling. I have been working in the field of addiction for almost 7 years. I graduated from California State University Fullerton in 2002 with an MS in Counseling and became a California Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in 2009. Let’s talk!

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to my practice, having worked with diverse populations for nearly a decade. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of providing therapy and support to individuals facing a wide range of challenges, including homelessness, re-entry (formerly incarcerated individuals), and serious mental illness (SMI). Over the last 3+ years, I have expanded my focus to work closely with first responders and essential employees, including nurses, doctors, firefighters, and police officers. This unique experience has given me profound insights into the pressures and demands faced by those who selflessly serve our communities. Witnessing firsthand the sacrifices and emotional toll endured by essential employees, I am committed to providing counseling services tailored to their unique needs and experiences. My therapeutic approach is grounded in person-centered therapy, emphasizing the importance of creating a safe and non-judgmental space for clients. By fostering a collaborative and empowering environment, I strive to help individuals explore their strengths, find inner resilience, and work towards personal growth and healing. In addition to person-centered therapy, I incorporate mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques into my practice. Mindfulness offers essential tools for managing stress, anxiety, and depression, allowing clients to develop present-moment awareness and self-compassion. With training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) skills, I assist clients in identifying and challenging negative thought patterns and behaviors. CBT has proven effective in addressing a variety of issues, such as anxiety, depression, and trauma-related symptoms. Drawing from my expertise in drug and alcohol counseling, I provide comprehensive support to individuals struggling with substance use disorders. I approach this work from a harm reduction perspective, meeting clients where they are in their journey and promoting safety and positive change. My background includes extensive experience in treating anxiety, depression, substance use, and trauma. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and am dedicated to helping individuals overcome these challenges to lead fulfilling lives. Furthermore, I have valuable experience in crisis response, suicide education and prevention, and community outreach. These experiences have deepened my understanding of mental health challenges and the importance of early intervention and support. My commitment to cultural competence is integral to my practice. I strive to provide a therapeutic experience that respects and honors the unique backgrounds and experiences of each individual. As we continue to navigate the complexities of life, especially during the pandemic and beyond, I am here to provide compassionate and effective counseling support. Whether you are seeking help for anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, or any other challenges, I am dedicated to supporting your healing and growth. Please feel free to reach out to me to schedule an appointment or discuss any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you on your journey towards improved mental health and well-being. Sincerely, Anthony Moore Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist CA121972

I'm licensed in California with over 20 years of professional work experience. I'm honored to have supported countless clients (youth and adults, families and individuals) to better manage their stress and anxiety; to navigate the loneliness that often accompanies depression; to express and process grief and loss, abuse and related traumas, and various other challenges. We'll work as a team. You won't get trendy clinical jargon from me. I'm not up-to-speed on all of the current terms, nor do I find this necessary for true healing. I enjoy genuine, honest relationships focused on my clients' paths; you are the expert on yourself. I see myself as a mentor-coach-guiding force and objective professional. You'll also receive caring nudges from me, as needed, to enhance your sense of self-worth and improved mental wellness. Aiding my clients towards increased self-love and compassion is my ultimate goal. It takes courage to embark on this process to achieve the positive changes that you deserve. I hope to empower you on this journey.

Hi, call me Katie! I am a master of social work graduate from California State University, Sacramento and a licensed therapist. I have 8 years of work experience, 5 1/2 of which I have been working in a mental health setting (crisis stabilization, crisis residential, outpatient). I specialize in working with clients who: are coping with addictions; are dually diagnosed with mental illness and addiction; are experiencing stress or anxiety; have faced trauma and abuse; and who are coping with grief and loss. Previous clients have described me as easy to talk to, calming, empathic, and warm. Some of the modalities and approaches I incorporate into my practice include: dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and harm reduction. Since we are all unique as human beings I believe it is important to have a personalized approach when working with clients. Your treatment plan will look nothing like another client's treatment plan. There are a few truths I stand by in my practice: 1. DIVERSITY is beautiful and important. I believe in treating everyone with respect, humility, and kindness. I like to approach my clients' unique stories from a lens of curiosity and compassion. I've done my job well if you feel seen and heard in every facet of your identity. 2. YOU ARE THE EXPERT of your own story. Often times we already have the internal wisdom and strength to overcome the challenges we face. My job is to support you with time, a space, and the attention to feel safe to do so. 3. YOU ARE BRAVE. It takes courage to take those first steps towards change. My job is to empower you and support you in doing so. More about me: I live in Northern California with my dog (a corgi named Leo) and in my free time I enjoy writing, going into nature, cooking, reading, traveling, and daydreaming. I am also an Enneagram 4 and an ISFJ.

How to find counseling in Weed

Finding the best therapist close by in Weed can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Weed. 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 Weed, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Weed or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Weed area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Weed, elsewhere in Siskiyou, or in the greater state of California.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Weed 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Weed, California 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 CA, 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 96094 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 Weed 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 Weed 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 Weed, 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.

Weed 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.
