Finding "the right" therapist, involves searching for the one you feel comfortable with. Communication should flow very easily between you two. Trauma, loss and/ or self dissatisfaction are a constant concern for many. Those pitfalls and disappointments affect everyone just in different ways. Therefore, you should NEVER feel like your therapist doesn't "get it". I'm trained in helping a wide range of individuals to realize their fullest potential, find happiness in life through the development of healthy relationships and to empower them to reach for goals that currently seem impossible. My aim is to help you define your problems. I use my years of training in sexuality, trauma, marriage and family, anger management, addictive behavior, motivational interviewing, and cognitive processes combined with my own life experiences to lead you to discover and embrace your authentic self.

Have you ever felt depressed, anxious, or not good enough? Do you ever wonder how to move past a traumatic incident from your past? I work with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, self-esteem, grief, and addictions. I am caring, empathic, and hope to help you become the best version of yourself, so that you can live your most fulfilling future! I use a variety of interventions including CBT, DBT, Person-centered focus, solution-based focus, and mindfulness. I decided to become a mental health counselor after becoming a law enforcement officer. I found that the mental health and addictions were not being properly addressed, and many “offenders” needed rehabilitation and therapy, not jail and prison. I have now worked in the mental health/addictions field since 2015. I love being able to help someone realize their full potential, become the best version of themselves, and lead a happy life. I an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community, and a judgement free zone. I base our sessions on your current issues at hand, and work with you to find what will best help you. *Please note* I do NOT list all of my available openings on my calendar. Please discuss dates/times with me to set a session.

Hello and welcome! I'm Egypt, a licensed clinical social worker based in Georgia. It is my privilege to offer guidance and support to women navigating through various life transitions, as well as parents seeking assistance along their parenting journey. Parenting young adults can be a challenging phase, as both parents and their children navigate the transition from adolescence to adulthood. It's common for parents to have certain expectations for their children during this period, and when those expectations aren't met, it can lead to feelings of frustration and isolation. Similarly, supporting women going through life transitions like relationships endings, peri-menopause, and menopause is crucial. These are significant milestones that can bring about a range of physical, emotional and social changes. Many women may feel overwhelmed, confused or even isolated during these periods. I hope to provide empathy and practical strategies that can make a difference in their well being and navigate these transitions smoothly. My approach to therapy is rooted in empathy, collaboration and evidence-based practices. I strive to create a warm and non-judgmental therapeutic environment where you can feel heard, understood, and empowered to make positive changes in your life. I invite you to take the first step towards personal growth and well-being. If you're ready to embark on this journey together or have any questions, please reach out. I would be honored to support you during this transformative process.

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.

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 Junction City 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 Junction City area can be found below:

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Junction City 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 Junction City 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 Junction City 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 Junction City 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 Junction City, 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.

Junction City 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.
