It can never be easy to admit when we’re struggling in life, and often times, whether it’s family, friends, coworkers, and or other types of relationships, trying to untangle the balls of confusion and the uncertainty impacting our hearts, can be stressful. Moreover, it may even cause us sadness, worry and affect our ability to sleep at night. Other matters can also clinch at hearts, such as dealing with loss of a loved one, difficulties with life transitions, desiring an enriching fuller life, or even the realization that your child may be struggling. Given these points, if this is you, then you have come to the right place. Together, we will think through what you want to work on and develop a plan to achieve your goals. I will help you sort through confusion and turmoil and equally help you change patterns that may be unhealthy. I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space where you can explore and move from just surviving to thriving. My style is one of many with a focus on recognizing how unhealthy behavior and thought patterns occur, providing tools necessary to manage stress and getting solutions. Without delay, in an objective space you can explore and move towards changing and receiving the life you’ve wanted.

Hello, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia (LCSW) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2004. I have experience working with children, parents and families in many different settings. My work has included guiding families through issues related to neglect and abuse, foster care and adoption, blended families and communication issues. I have worked with parents who are struggling with stresses related to parenting children and teens. In addition, I love assisting women who are struggling with the pressures of motherhood to find peace and confidence in that role. Another one of my heartfelt passions involves supporting young adults navigating the intricate challenges of the adult world. In today's fast-paced environment, finding one's path can be an overwhelming journey. I derive immense fulfillment from aiding individuals in navigating this complexity, assisting them in managing stress, and collaboratively devising a personalized roadmap towards a fulfilling life. I mostly tend to draw from a client centered modality when in a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This means that I make consistent efforts to meet each client "where they are" and to allow a space where each client can feel heard and that their feelings are valued. I also pull from other modalities to guide my work, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy. I enjoy and feel honored to be a part of someone’s personal journey towards growth and peace. I provide a non-judgment, criticism free environment where my clients can feel safe to share their feelings and develop a plan to move forward to a place of peace and comfort. I look forward to working with you!

Hello, My name is Jan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been licensed for over 25 years. After my children were in school fulltime, I decided to get a job. I was I had a degree in teaching but felt that I wanted to teach special education. To do that I went back to school and got a masters in learning disabilities. I loved the job and loved the children but felt that I was missing some information. Many of the children that I taught also had emotional concerns. it was not uncommon for them to struggle in school for several years before they were diagnosed. That often left them with a very low sense of themselves. I wanted to help. I went back to school and got a masters degree in counseling. I loved it so much that I stayed and also got a specialists degree in counseling. All of that led me to leaving teaching and taking a job as a school counselor. I was so fortunate to stay in the school system. In addition to that job, I saw some private clients over the years. Once I retired from the school system , I built my private practice. It has been a few years since I have seen clients but find that I really miss it. This is a perfect solution. I am pretty easy to get to know. Spending time with someone and helping them find ways to be more comfortable in their lives is such a great adventure. showing people strengths that they didn't even know they had is so satisfying for everyone. If I am your counselor or not, I wish you well on your journey!

Life can be challenging, and life transitions (death of a loved one, divorce, infidelity, health decline, loss of a job, school stressors, break-ups, increased financial obligations) can feel unbearable. Even everyday life can get overwhelming. I invite you to allow therapy to be your soft landing space. During our time together, I will utilize CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) along with supportive therapy to assist you in addressing these life challenges.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders.

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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill area can be found below:

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

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

Therapists in Edgehill, Georgia 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill 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 GA, 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 30810 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill 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 Edgehill, 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.

Edgehill 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.
