20 years of experience

My formal journey in psychology began in 1992, with one of my college majors, human communication. I went on to study Marriage & Family Therapy at Antioch New England before finishing a masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Webster University. Throughout my life I have traveled within 49 states; of those, I lived in the Midwest, the south, New England, the east coast & the west coast. Some of the places I lived were urban, some of them rural. Most of my last two decades have been urban. My roots though are rural. Very rural. During the last twenty years, I have traveled within over sixty countries. Prior to laying down roots in Oregon summer 2015, I had lived in four “foreign” countries, on three separate continents as an adult. This offers me a unique perspective in culture, values, religion, and life. Every person, every story, is unique. Every person is simultaneously simple on the surface, yet incredibly complicated underneath. I will see you - all of you - beneath the surface that you must maintain. I will respect how complicated you are, and where you are “coming from”… the complexities of your life; your history, the inter generational trauma, as well as what you have been and are currently living through. This is your safe place. Therapy is where you can let those heavy weights & feelings go. Choosing the “right” therapist means so very much in your healing. In first consultation, we will discuss your needs, and my scope of practice, and you can feel out if it’s a good fit for you. I have studied, and have been certified in, several modalities; but find that I lean in most to acceptance & commitment therapy. When we meet, I may draw upon this, or pieces of other modalities, depending on where you are in the moment. Therapy is about, and for, you … I have the education, experience, and tools to adapt to where you are and shift as needed. I am licensed for individual, couples, child, & family therapy in Oregon, California, Washington DC & Georgia. I am approved as an associate by Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors to supervise LPC & LMFT associates. I have also achieved E- RYT internationally and completed two semesters masters level coursework at the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. I continue to study holistic & “alternative” approaches to health. I firmly believe that mental health is “health”. Every part of you is connected, all of your history is connected. The mind feels the body and the body feels the mind. One cannot be “healed” without the other. … they work together. I am here to aid that togetherness with you … and help you find peace & joy in your life.

I am an energetic, efficient Licensed Professional Counselor for both GA and SC. I have experience working in outpatient, inpatient, community, addictions, and virtual settings. I have worked in the counseling arena for the past 13 years. I've had the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life whom are aiming to either make a change or "be the change". It is my belief that being compliant, building rapport and partnering with the client, allows for better identification and a "buy in" of resolutions. I incorporate a client centered approach, which enables me to build the necessary rapport to make the therapeutic process less intimidating for the clients to define goals and work towards the achievement of those identified goals. My compassion and empathetic demeanor encourages the client to discuss their deepest emotions and experiences. My self-less attitude allows me to meet the client “where they are at”, providing a safe space free from judgment, but instead providing respect, transparency and genuineness. One of my favorite theoretical orientations is DBT, as I believe that people as a whole are doing the best they can, and with the practice of mindfulness, we can all manage stress, and better cope with serious illness, anxiety and depression.

It is my hope that each client that I am privileged to work with learns more about their individuality and the purpose they serve in the world around us. I use evidence based therapeutic approaches in my work. These processes are developed to help clients find new thinking patterns while developing healthy coping skills related to life’s challenges.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton, 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hampton 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 Hampton 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 Hampton, 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.

Hampton 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.
