Florida is known for its beautiful beaches and amazing clear water and Quincy is no different, with ocean views and nearby beaches that everyone loves. However, the town also has a historical factor making it known for growing tobacco before the Civil War in 1861, when the practice became difficult. Until the 1950s when the crops again were booming due to a new process called shading. However, the tobacco industry became taboo and Quincy once again turned to other crops such as tomatoes and oranges.

Whether you are a farmer or a beachgoer, everyone needs some extra support once in a while. When you are feeling down or stressed or just have questions about something in your life, talk to one of the Quincy area therapists. They can help you work things out and get the answers you are looking for.

Hello, I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. My practice in mental health involves work in a broad range of programs such as my private practice, corrections, schools, hospitals, and mental health centers. I know that no single approach to therapy works for every person, therefore I integrate a variety of therapeutic modalities, such as: CBT, Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness. I will offer my experience and expertise to help you to strengthen coping skills, to discover creative ways to resolve conflicts, to empower you to make changes and to support you through a personal crisis. I have worked with adjustment issues due to major life/career change, crisis, loss, trauma, substance and alcohol addiction, relationship issues, anxiety, depression and behavioral/cognitive problems related to brain dysfunctions. I offer an empathic, non-judgmental and safe online therapy space to promote growth and healing. This means I do not guide or direct you towards specific religion, believe system and/ or political orientation but towards your personal counseling goals. If you are uncertain as to what to say, have questions, not sure if this is the right approach for you now, I will help you to make the decision about counseling. I am continuously seeking professional growth in my career. I recently obtained the Certified Clinical Trauma Professional level I, C-DBT and completed courses on Telemental Health and Mindfulness. My educational credentials include: Doctor in Biology - Universidade de Brasília, DF, Brazil Master of Science Major: Psychology - Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, Illinois Psychologist - Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida with experience working with I believe that it is a common misconception that people feel that therapy is only for the mentally ill. Sometimes difficult life-cycle transitions such as relationship issues, health problems, work stressors, for example, may overwhelm our ability to cope, to get through difficult situations, and the need for emotional support may arise. Therefore, I believe that most people can benefit from a therapist who can provide an objective, non-judgmental perspective, in an environment of collaboration, and confidentiality. My counseling style is empathetic and welcoming. The type of psychotherapy approach I mostly rely on is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a broad term that is comprised of a diverse group of treatments which, its effectiveness has been demonstrated in several randomized controlled trials.

Hello! My name is Angie and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over five years of experience providing therapy services. My experience is in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, domestic violence shelters and with a community mental health agency. I have worked with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and relationship challenges as individuals, couples and families. Additionally, I am a military spouse and have worked closely with active duty members as well as family members. I can personally and professionally understand the unique challenges associated with this population. As a military spouse, I moved frequently but have finally settled permanently in the panhandle of Florida. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology and my Masters Degree in Social Work from Indiana University. My approach to therapy is client centered as I strongly believe and recognize clients are the experts on their lives and should determine the path, intensity and length of their therapy. I like to use a strengths-based and solutions-focused approach and I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in establishing realistic treatment plans to help them reach their desired therapeutic goals. I tend to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in exploring relationships among their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to assist them in discovering any dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs. I also support clients through developing coping skills using mindfulness and emotion regulation. It takes courage and bravery to take the first steps towards the change you desire. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

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 Quincy 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Quincy 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 Quincy 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 Quincy may not take health insurance, some in the state of Florida 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 Florida 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 Quincy, Florida 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 Quincy 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 can also try a Quincy 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 Quincy 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 FL, providers may be booked out with clients.

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 Quincy 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 Quincy 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 Quincy, Florida 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.

Quincy 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.
