Life happens to the best of us, and it can be very overwhelming in general. With women juggling more roles, there has been an overwhelming increase in pressure to push through when you may feel like you are operating on fumes. Whether you are amid a positive, exciting life event or more stressful experience, life transitions are inevitable. This is for the woman who may be functioning well on the outside but falling apart inside. You came here because maybe you are feeling disconnected from yourself & others, chronically exhausted, loss in the day-to-day life, and questioning this version of you. It is normal to feel some level of discomfort as life is happening around you. However, no one should have to navigate a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, experiencing intrusive thoughts, or feeling stuck in the dark with no way out without adequate support. Does this sound like you? Feeling on edge, being “snappy” with children/friends/family, easily fatigued with small task, difficulty with being present with your children, not being able to show up in relationships, feeling restless, thinking negatively about yourself, or feeling tensed in your body. Whether your goal is to make lifestyle changes or discover a more aligned version of you, consider taking that journey with me! Examples of major life changes include but are not limited to: Re-entering the workforce, preparing for marriage, relocating, changing careers, taking on a new role, becoming a caregiver, adapting to motherhood, navigating blended family, sudden changes in relationships, etc. No matter what kind of transition you are facing, learning to adapt can impact your personal and professional development. The good news is there’s hope! This could mean an opportunity for you to co-create a healing space and address challenges unique to you. My exclusive 4 step approach can help you become more self-aware and gain insight into how life changes can lead you to personal strength, confidence and help increase your adaptability.

Hello everyone! I have worked in some aspect of healthcare since 1994. I started off as a Medical Assistant in the state of Maryland, then I moved here to GA; where I have been for the last 20 years. As a healthcare professional, I have worked in many specialties; adult, child, family, ob/gyn, neurology, urgent care, emergent care, dermatology, med/surgery and mother and baby. I have taught medical assisting as well as placed Medical Assistant students on their externship. I have worked for large hospitals such as Johns Hopkins University and Dekalb Medical Center. I have also taught in secondary education in career colleges and business schools. I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology from Georgia State University (2010) and a master's degree in Community Counseling (2013) from Argosy University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of GA. I have worked with veterans for several years as a crisis counselor. I started my career working with children/teens as a community counselor. I have a passion for helping one operate in their highest capacity in order to master the basic areas of life; work, family, social lives and purpose. I practice solution focused therapy on a regular basis. This means I am direct and "to the point" as it relates to identifying and working toward solving a situation. However, I will try other modalities if the situation requires another focus. I love helping people and believe help starts with getting one's mental state healthy 1st and that will trickle over to being healthy in all areas of life. I have the unique experience of not only being a teen parent; I had my 1st child at 15 and my 2nd child at 19; therefore, even though I am licensed; I have experienced hardships and life challenges at a very early age! Therefore, I can relate and identify to most people, regardless of their background or trials and tribulations. I am here to help you maximize life fulfillment by overcoming real and self imposed obstacles.

There are times when we find ourselves on auto-pilot, in a state of being that is mundane, overwhelming, and monotonous. We want to take our lives to the next level but do not possess the tools to do so. If you are feeling stuck and want more out of life, I'm here to assist with setting goals, overcoming limited beliefs, and developing appropriate coping skills that will propel you forward in life. I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Georgia and Texas with over 8 years of experience within the counseling field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns to include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, and self-esteem/ self-image. Oftentimes, we focus on past life experiences or are anxious about the future; therefore, I use a combination approach that includes mindfulness (being present) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (thoughts influence behaviors). This technique helps with grounding and appreciating the present moment while identifying belief patterns that are a hindrance. I want you to know that you've already made the right step by seeking out a qualified therapist. In this very moment, you are making a life-changing decision to improve your overall mental well-being. If you are interested in how I can assist in your life's journey, please feel free to reach out. I'm here for you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Hogansville 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 Hogansville 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 Hogansville, 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.

Hogansville 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.
