20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 15 years experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I earned a Masters Degree in Psychology from Florida A&M University in 1986, and I have been working in the mental health field since that time. I have extensive experience working with those struggling with such issues as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting issues, LGBTQ issues, marital problems, and stress related disorders. I believe in meeting each individual wherever they are in life, and helping them work through issues they are struggling with through a non-judgmental, professional approach towards self-awareness and personal growth. I believe that a Cognitive-Behavioral approach to therapy helps clients achieve this goal. This involves working through feelings, developing coping skills, and challenging thoughts that are self-defeating or negative. I strongly believe in the therapy process and the impact it can have in helping you feel better and achieve greater emotional well-being. I want to emphasize that you're not alone, and that I am available to help you work through this process. As your therapist, I would commit to helping you work through any problems that you are dealing with in a professional, therapeutic manner. I look forward to working with you as you journey towards the process of feeling better.

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here today. I believe that you can get better. I believe your relationships can get better. I believe you care deeply about the people in your life. In short, I believe that with the proper tools, you can change how you function in your life. I thank you for your courage and trust in reaching out to me for help. My past clients have seen improvement in their relationships, increased ability to cope with depression, anxiety, peer pressure, and substance/process addiction. Many of them have reported feeling supported and cared for while in a therapeutic relationship with me, as well as set up for success upon termination. Perhaps most of all, they are able to find their way back to themselves in a world which demands they perform with no off switch . It can be crippling when there’s a misfit between you and your family, your job, or the expectations you have of yourself. You’ll get a safe, supportive environment to challenge the thinking and behavior patterns which no longer serve you well. At the end of our time together, you’ll have a better understanding of yourself and why you’ve headed down this path to begin with. I use a mix of experience based and cognitive behavioral therapies in my work, as well as helping you develop excellent physical and mental health habits. My compassion and fascination with emotions, psychology, and the human body led me to complete my undergraduate and graduate social work degrees at the University of Oklahoma. I have been practicing as a clinical social worker since 2007 in a mix of settings: residential substance abuse center, private practice, and community based mental health centers. I've had training from a wide variety of experts in couples work (emotionally focused therapy), family work (brief strategic family therapy), as well as various mood disorders and their effects. Most recently, I primarily works with folks growing their families. I’m here to guide you through this messy stage of life where everything you thought you knew disappears.I’ve been there as a mama– I know exactly how the hormonal changes can throw you for a loop and understand how this can make you doubt yourself. Add in lack of sleep, heavy bleeding, likely poor diet, and bam! Everything feels like it’s falling apart. In addition to expertise on anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders, I help you build a foundation of practical self-care so you can better weather what life throws at you. I offer prenatal and postpartum coaching for out of state folks as well as prenatal, postpartum, and family therapy for Georgia residents.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Milton 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 Milton 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 therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Milton 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.

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

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

Milton 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 Milton 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 Milton 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.

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

Before seeing your Milton 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 Milton.

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 Milton 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 Milton 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 Milton, 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.

Milton 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.
