Welcome! I’m glad you’re here today. I believe that you can get better. I believe your relationships can get better. I believe you care deeply about the people in your life. In short, I believe that with the proper tools, you can change how you function in your life. I thank you for your courage and trust in reaching out to me for help. My past clients have seen improvement in their relationships, increased ability to cope with depression, anxiety, peer pressure, and substance/process addiction. Many of them have reported feeling supported and cared for while in a therapeutic relationship with me, as well as set up for success upon termination. Perhaps most of all, they are able to find their way back to themselves in a world which demands they perform with no off switch . It can be crippling when there’s a misfit between you and your family, your job, or the expectations you have of yourself. You’ll get a safe, supportive environment to challenge the thinking and behavior patterns which no longer serve you well. At the end of our time together, you’ll have a better understanding of yourself and why you’ve headed down this path to begin with. I use a mix of experience based and cognitive behavioral therapies in my work, as well as helping you develop excellent physical and mental health habits. My compassion and fascination with emotions, psychology, and the human body led me to complete my undergraduate and graduate social work degrees at the University of Oklahoma. I have been practicing as a clinical social worker since 2007 in a mix of settings: residential substance abuse center, private practice, and community based mental health centers. I've had training from a wide variety of experts in couples work (emotionally focused therapy), family work (brief strategic family therapy), as well as various mood disorders and their effects. Most recently, I primarily works with folks growing their families. I’m here to guide you through this messy stage of life where everything you thought you knew disappears.I’ve been there as a mama– I know exactly how the hormonal changes can throw you for a loop and understand how this can make you doubt yourself. Add in lack of sleep, heavy bleeding, likely poor diet, and bam! Everything feels like it’s falling apart. In addition to expertise on anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders, I help you build a foundation of practical self-care so you can better weather what life throws at you. I offer prenatal and postpartum coaching for out of state folks as well as prenatal, postpartum, and family therapy for Georgia residents.

Well done for taking this first step towards being your best self. It is normal to feel apprehensive about reaching out for help. It is my aim to reduce the barriers to counseling with flexible availability and approaches that work for you! I believe in meeting people where they are at and providing them with an enriching experience that equips them to meet their goals. With over 25 years of experience as a social worker, including extensive international work, I have worked with a large range of clients across the lifespan, with a broad range of needs, desires, and wants. My practice style is relational, strength-based, and individualized. In counseling you can expect professional, empathetic, and targeted support to facilitate the changes you want to achieve. I believe strongly in helping people to leverage their strengths, build resilience, and heal from grief and loss, trauma, and other adversities that they have experienced. I am passionate about giving back to the community. Therefore, I have volunteered in many capacities through-out my career. Currently I am a volunteer assistant swim coach for a local university, where I support athletes to find their feet, navigate the demands of college life, and develop important life skills. I have extensive experience working with young adults as they make important life transitions and forge their unique life paths. As part of my practice I also work with adults with relationship concerns, career challenges, anxiety, and depression. At the core of my work is a belief in the power of transformation through connections, empowerment, and healing. My personal and professional philosophy is that what binds us all together are some common needs, desires, and wants. People want to have a voice and to be heard. We are wired for connections and relationships. Fundamentally we want and need to feel that we belong and have a place in this world. We all have our fears, doubts, and unique experiences that shape our sense of self, choices, and world view. We all have mountains to climb, barriers to overcome, and pains to bear and heal. The idea of counseling is to gain the support and tools you need when you need it most. I look forward to meeting you, learning about you, and helping you during your life journey.

I am a licensed mental health therapist in the state of Georgia with over 5 years of experience working as a clinical mental health therapist. I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications and my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, Bi-polar, Schizophrenia, OCD, ODD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My counseling style has always been focused on building a strong therapeutic alliance with my client. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My motto is that we all have bad situations in life (death, abuse, divorce, etc.) that we experience in life that can trigger some negative thoughts, emotional feelings, etc. and it is important to respond to these situations in a healthy manner or we tend to stay in that negative space longer than we ever intended. I have been there. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, DBT, rational-emotive counseling, and client-centered therapy. My goal is to walk with you through your healing journey as you take steps towards accepting but not allowing challenging events to define who you are and take control of your life. I realize that it is not easy to admit that you need help, but that is the beginning of change!! If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Kyle, I go by my middle name. I am licensed in Georgia with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with, but not limited to, stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, lgbtq+ related issues, & coping with grief and loss. I believe entering therapy is starting an alliance based on trust by the communication of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. This communication goes both ways, from client to therapist, and therapist to client. The need for such an alliance typically results from some part(s) of life becoming unmanageable or unclear. It is my role as a counselor to help you navigate these concerns, set goals, and to foster more effective coping skills to manage stress. Guarantees in counseling are limited, however I can assure you that I will do everything I can with my training and experience to help you achieve your goals. I graduated from The University of Georgia with bachelor’s degrees in psychology and history in 2004. Then worked for The Marcus Institute, as a Primary Therapist for clients with autism spectrum disorders and other ongoing behavioral health concerns for two and a half years. I moved to New York City, New York in 2007. There I was employed with Partnership of Innovative Comprehensive Care, Inc. as a Case Manager Supervisor, assisting other case managers with caseloads of clients with developmental, intellectual, and mental health disorders. I returned home to South Georgia in 2011 and received a Master of Science in Clinical/Counseling Psychology from Valdosta State University. During this time, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant along with interning at Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia. After graduation I worked at Crescent Pines/Anchor Hospital and The DeKalb Community Service Board as an Admission/Intake Counselor from 2012 to 2014. After this I started as an admission Counselor at Ascena Health (St. Jude’s Recovery Center, Inc.) in 2014. In 2015 I accepted a position as a therapist (clinician) providing one on one therapy and case management to individuals in both residential and outpatient treatment. In 2018, I received my Professional Counselor License. After this I continued as a therapist assisting clients with both substance use and mental health disorders in residential and outpatient care. In 2019 I accept a position as the Medication Assisted Treatment coordinator and residential manager supervisor. Within the same year I also started an outpatient program assisting in the reentry of federal offenders on probation. In 2023 I accepted the position of Director of clinical services, overseeing all clinical and residential programs within the agency. Later that year I started my own private practice, where I continue providing professional care and services to individuals with addictive, behavioral, and mental health disorders.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Deepstep 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 Deepstep 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 Deepstep may not take health insurance, some in the state of Georgia 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 Georgia 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 Deepstep?

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

Deepstep 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 Deepstep 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 Deepstep 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 31082 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 Deepstep counselor?

Before seeing your Deepstep 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 Deepstep.

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 Deepstep 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 Deepstep 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 Deepstep, 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.

Deepstep 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.
