Hey there and welcome to BetterHelp! Reaching out for help can be one of the most difficult steps you make, and I want to applaud the courage it took you to make that step today! My name is Whitney, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with years of experience in many different areas. I have worked closely with clients to help them process and overcome trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, attachment, self-esteem and more. I have gained experience in these areas through working with clients in multiple settings to include; community mental health agencies, crisis stabilization facility, college counseling department and work in the school system. I am now in private practice using all the experience gained to continue helping clients on their journey of growth and healing. I received my undergraduate degree at Georgia Southern University and my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at Savannah State University. I had the opportunity to work with and learn from amazing and eclectic mentors and professors during my studies and internships. Throughout that time I learned a variety of skills and therapy interventions. Staying up to date on the latest research and techniques is an important part of my practice to ensure that I am providing the best evidence based methods possible. I believe that you have all that you need within you to be successful, and live a life full of joy and satisfaction. There are times when our circumstances seem so challenging that no one could possibly understand or help. During those times, we are often in need more than ever of a safe and authentic human connection to overcome some of those difficult moments. Through my experience, I have learned that the relationship and connection that comes from therapy is like no other. It can help or hinder a persons healing and growth. It is my honor to help those who are willing to take that first step and allow me to become apart of their journey. I bring the perspective to my therapy approach that you are the expert in you. You decide your goals and when you are ready to challenge yourself. I will be helping to shine a light on unseen potential, skills, and strengths in your life. No one can tackle your life challenges but you, however you don't have to do it alone. Working together we will use evidence based interventions to move you in the direction you want to go, to reach your desired goals and to live a life full of joy and satisfaction. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to reach out with any questions. Whitney

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Buckhead. 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 Buckhead, 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 Buckhead region and in the state of Georgia. 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 Buckhead 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.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Buckhead 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 Buckhead due to a higher cost of living.

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 Buckhead?

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

Buckhead 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead 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 GA, 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 30650 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 Buckhead counselor?

Before seeing your Buckhead 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 Buckhead.

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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead, Georgia 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.

Buckhead 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.
