I am a licensed, professional counselor with over 10 years of experience in clinical mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, and school counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including substance abuse and dependence, depression, anxiety, grief, bi-polar disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD, trauma, and change of life/adjustment issues. I believe in treating others with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. In our sessions, I will help you to identify strengths, formulate goals, and navigate a path to achieving those goals. My approach integrates cognitive-behavioral and motivational interviewing techniques within a humanistic counseling framework. Please note, the services I provide through BetterHelp are congruent with supportive counseling. They would not be appropriate for someone in crisis or someone who needs clinical assessment, diagnosis, or intensive psychotherapy. At this time, I am only offering chat and texting sessions, not video or phone sessions. I look forward to working with you!

Welcome! Sometimes life is hard and it is easiest to just lie down and let life happen to us. But because you’re here, I know that there is something within you that realizes that while this may work for a season, it will not lead you towards the happiness you seek nor the life you desire to live. Something within you recognizes that this is a moment to seize. This is a moment that has the potential to bring about invaluable self-discovery that could inspire great change. It is through times of difficulty that we are able to discover the true strength and courage within us. Already you are showing such courage! You have chosen to gain understanding of yourself through whatever challenge you may be facing currently, rather than allowing it to dictate who you are in this world. Owning our own stories is an endeavor worth pursuing. Will it be easy? Not always. Will it be worth it? A thousand times, yes!! I would love to walk with you and support you in your pursuit. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and have 15 years of counseling experience. I am also a Certified Life Coach through the International Coach Federation and have been coaching individuals for two years. Working with clients is something that I truly enjoy. My past and present experiences as a school counselor, a therapist and a life coach have provided me with invaluable experience working with clients of all ages from children to adults, helping them as they process through various experiences and/or reach to achieve goals they have set for themselves. Through these positions, I have worked with individuals and families dealing with such issues as relationships, grief, divorce, anxiety, depression, social difficulties, anger, teen pregnancy, abuse (physical and sexual), rape, trauma, careers and academics. My counseling style is person-centered, meaning that the relationship that we build together is instrumental in helping you to realize your dreams and goals. I will work diligently to foster a safe, honest and caring relationship between us where you have the freedom to fully be yourself and find acceptance in me. Also subscribing to a narrative therapy approach, I believe that the stories we tell ourselves and the meaning we ascribe to the events taking place in our lives have great significance on how one chooses (or not chooses) to deal with life circumstances. So, I’m very curious to know your story. In the grand scheme of life, what story is being told about you and how do you feel about it? Do you believe that you have the ability/power to re-write that story (if need be) to promote a greater sense of self-confidence, identity and satisfaction with your current and/or future life circumstances? Please consider me a guide as you navigate your own personal path of self-exploration. As your story unfolds, I will listen and not judge. I will ask questions to help us both gain better understanding. It is my hope to support, empower and encourage you in the actualization of the goals that you determine are the most important for self-fulfillment at this stage of your life. I would be honored to have you share your story with me and come alongside as you seek to take your rightful position as the hero.

Hi, my name is Nadine, and I am a Doctor of Conflict Resolution (PhD), a Florida Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), a Florida Certified Addiction Professional (MCAP), and a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP). For more than 15 years, I have worked as a Therapist and Clinical Director in a variety of settings such as Private Practice, Agencies and Addiction Rehabilitation Centers, helping individuals tackle complex family issues, including co-dependency, highly conflicted divorces, addictions (alcohol, substances and gambling), domestic violence, and the anxiety and depression which can accompany these experiences. Prior to pursuing a career in mental health, I worked successfully in corporate environments and have a complimentary expertise in organizational conflict, and conflict and crisis management. I take a systems approach to therapy with a goal to help you better function in the areas of life that are important to you. My approach is customized to your needs and goals. I draw on a variety of trainings, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing and various family therapy interventions to customize a treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results. My approach fosters positivity, with an honest, and respectful directness. This relationship is a partnership that requires us to work well together, building on a foundation of trust. For this to occur, we need to be able to communicate freely with one another. I am mindful that some topics might be uncomfortable, and we can work through them together. I look forward to working with you. Congratulations! you’ve already taken the hardest step…

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

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek may not take health insurance, some in the state of Delaware 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 Delaware 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 Little Creek, Delaware 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 DE, 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 19961 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek 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 Little Creek, Delaware 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.

Little Creek 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.
