11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Philip Clary, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia. I have over 9 years of counseling experience working with individuals, couples, and families in inpatient and outpatient settings. I earned a bachelor’s degree from Mercer University with majors in philosophy and German. I studied for 1 year at Phillips Universität in Marburg, Germany and received a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fort Valley State University. My ongoing studies in and love of philosophy inform my approach to helping others examine their lives as they seek meaning, direction, and purpose. I am interested in helping you understand, cope with, manage, and reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety and adapt to major changes in life. I work patiently and compassionately with those seeking to understand and come to terms with feelings of shame, loss and grief, meaninglessness, isolation, and ultimately our limited lifespan. I hope to help others, young and old, discover or create their own meaning and purpose in life. I want to help people answer for themselves, “How do I want to live the rest of my life?” and to develop ways to meaningfully connect with others. Please be aware that I am currently only providing text therapy on BetterHelp. My approach to therapy is informed by several useful perspectives. I employ elements of CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), mindfulness-based therapy, existential psychotherapy, and narrative therapy. When appropriate, I incorporate elements of popular culture, such as video games, anime and manga, comics, and super hero literature and movies. These are great resources for story lines that many can relate to in deeper and more meaningful ways than traditional talk therapy. I look forward to working with you to set and meet your goals for your best life. Philip

My name is Carolyn Elaine Smith. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in the state of Georgia with 11 years of experience.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kingsland 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 Kingsland due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Kingsland?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Kingsland 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.

Kingsland therapists 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 Kingsland 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 Kingsland 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in GA, therapists 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 31548 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Kingsland counselor?

Before seeing your Kingsland 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Kingsland.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Kingsland 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 with a Kingsland counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Kingsland, 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.

Kingsland 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
