Everyone has the ability to have joy and happiness, we just need to learn how! I help my clients by taking a positive approach to their lives. I understand the stressors and depression that daily life and trauma has on each individual, as well as their family. It is my goal to find a way out out of this circle and create a meaningful life. I have been working with people while utilizing a positive approach for the past 15 years in order to bring meaning to each person as well as peace within a family. I specialize in working with individuals and families to create positive relationships. In addition, I have been working with veterans and their families for the past 5 yrs in dealing with unique challenges of deployment, reunion and PTSD's role in changing family dynamics. I hope to help each individual find their unique way of creating the life that they envision!

Life has many different roads, avenues, and detours, but the way you find your destination is up to you. Therefore, my goal is to empower my clients to map out effective responses to their environment and situations to promote successful outcomes. I’ve worked in group homes, school settings, office settings, and community settings with children, adolescents, and adults. I understand that overcoming mental health issues is a collaboration and not a one-sided interaction. My extensive work with clients is comprised of managing anxiety disorders, depression disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and numerous other personality and mood disorders. My therapeutic techniques include person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, strength-based therapy, and reality therapy. I believe that everyone’s emotional, mental, and physical health matters. As an eclectic therapist, striking a balance between working with evidence-based theories and individual preferences is supremely important. I’m available for individual and family sessions and I want to help you find what makes you feel inner peace and your purpose in life.

Hi! Welcome to my page. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC in Georgia and South Carolina) & Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC nationally); with over a decade and a half of experience in helping people to move forward. Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, or dissatisfied with your life? Are you experiencing a situation that you think no one will understand? Perhaps your situation is rare and you are not certain if what you are experiencing is real? Are you ready for help that is actually helpful? Is guilt or shame stopping you from getting to the life you want? Where ever you are and whatever you are going through, I am ready to help you figure out the first or next steps. Are you ready to explore options, make choices and start living a better life? Sometimes when we try to change it impacts the system around us, sometimes leading to outcomes we did not necessarily intend, but have no control over. I understand that no two people are the same and that every individual is to be respected as unique with very different feelings, actions, thoughts, experiences, and history. My holistic approach to treatment is tailored to you, an individual. Whether you only need a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to grow and find your own way, or you need help to deal with long term suffering, or someone to make the journey through some dark place, then I am waiting to go with you. I have a very open, honest, engaging style that incorporates humor, metaphor and encouragement into the therapeutic process, a process that is self-directed and empowering for you my client. If I am wrong about any of this please let me know. I utilize various theoretical approaches including: person-centered, humanistic, existential, Adlerian, brief psycho-dynamic, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT); often framed in a skilled helper model. I have years of experience working with both disabilities (any type) and clinical mental health. I likewise specialized in technology assisted counseling, I have a proven record of counseling results including through the delivery of services via text based communication, and have utilized technology as an adjunct to face to face counseling during most of my professional career. I am waiting to begin where you are and start on any of these: Personal growth / development Anxiety / Depression Adjustment or re-adjustment Couple / parent concerns Anger management Interpersonal / social skills Disability (including psychiatric / invisible disabilities) Veterans Acute stress, trauma, post trauma (PTSD) Guilt / shame Bereavement / complex grief And more! Education: I earned my Bachelor's degrees, a BA in psychology and a BS in Chemistry from Arkansas Tech University, While working my way through school, I worked with persons with disabilities and also with persons seeking recovery from addictions. I earned my Master's degree in Counseling from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. While pursuing my Master's I worked for the division of services for the blind, helping persons with visual impairment and blindness. I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness. Experience: I have over a decade and a half of counseling experiences (rehabilitation and clinical mental health) including many referrals from community agencies in situations where the combination of factors was too varied for the system to address. In addition to my education and typical work experiences, I am also a combat veteran who served as a medic in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and have extensive training in helping with trauma, both mental/emotional and physical. I have a solid record of encouraging and challenging people to do the hard work needed to reach successful outcomes. I became interested in technology assisted counseling while working with persons who relied upon assistive-technology for face to face and social interaction, and yet due to the limitations of the portable technology and complexity of synchronous communication I quickly realized that asynchronous, text based communication was the only feasible solution for this person to ever benefit from counseling. Freddy L. Honeycutt is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC).

Humans are like trees in a way. When is tree is bearing fruit that isn’t sufficient, you can cut off the fruit and the branches and hope it regrows to what you want. But, the REAL issue is the roots! We do the exact same thing in our own lives. When we have habits that prevent us from functioning in a healthy way, we try so many temporary solutions and hope things will be better. Reality is…until we address the roots of those habits, we continue to set ourselves up for feelings of regret, hopelessness, and other feelings that can lead to us doubting the fact that it CAN get better! My approach is to look at the whole picture to better address the issues that hinder us. Of course there will be pain and other feelings that may come up. With that said, we will ALWAYS go at YOUR speed. We will NOT dig into places that you are not ready for. I hope that with our continued relationship, that vulnerability will grow, and we can finally face those things together. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor by the state of Georgia. I have my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and my Bachelor’s in Sociology and Anthropology. I have worked in private practice, prison, school, hospital, and partial hospitalization settings. On a personal note, when I am not providing therapy, I am a stage actress. Musical Theatre is one of my passions and I love that I get to do it on the side. My favorite meal is spicy goat and jollof rice. I am a bariatric patient #SleevedLife. I’m the type of person who goes to the beach and can stay in the water for hours. Most importantly, I never give up. Not on myself and definitely not on other people.

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 Homeland, 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. 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 Homeland 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland, 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 31537 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 Homeland 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 Homeland 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 Homeland, 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.

Homeland 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.
