In 2004 I worked as a mental health counselor at a psychiatric mental health facility for four years in Atlanta, Georgia. Here, I worked with adults of all ages struggling with mental health and addiction. For the past 24 years I have worked with adults, college students, high school students, middle school students, and elementary students as a school counselor and as an adjunct professor at Mercer University for graduate students in Clinical Counseling. I have also worked as an Equine Therapist, Grief Therapist, Play Therapist, Sand Tray Therapist, Beyond Art Therapy Therapist, E.M.D.R., Hypnotherapy, and Trauma.

I have written over 12 eBooks on counseling techniques on counseling and mental health issues.

Together we will begin the journey into therapy. I will be here to support you all the way. I know how hard it is to make that first step. I have been there myself and have seen how powerful great therapy can be! But first you have to show up for therapy. It's not going to always be easy and fun, but I can promise you that if you are ready for therapy, and do the work involved, you will never regret your decision to start therapy. I tell my clients that they need to come to our therapy sessions with an open mind. It's okay to be open, yet skeptical with what we will be doing and I will be there to keep you safe. I only ask that you bring your trust to the therapy sessions and give it a try. Every technique I use with my clients is one that I have used on myself. The creative therapies are very powerful in the healing process, but you must be ready to try. I encourage you to really think about your being ready to change your life? Please note I am not the therapist for everyone. I only work part time and have to limit myself to 20 clients on my caseload. I cannot accept clients from certain time zones such as Australia and Asia due to the conflict of my time zone which is EST. Also, I am only accepting adult clients at this time. I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you live to the fullest potential in life. Are you are ready to put the time and energy into something that will change your life if you allow it to? If so, then I am the counselor for you! Sincerely, Dr. Michelle Stangline, Licensed Professional Counselor Important; Please note my hours can only accommodate you if you are willing to have a therapy session that will fit into the EST from (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. M-F). Please check your time zone and see if your need for a session would fit into my time zone hours.

Hi, my name is Breo'na, my counseling style is welcoming, non-judgmental, and interactive. I firmly believe that people are experts regarding themselves and realize the importance of meeting individuals, as clients exactly where they are in life. My guiding technique is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on the rationale of an individual’s cognitive beliefs and distorted thoughts as well as the combination of Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered Therapy. I have experience working with clients that struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also a licensed in North Carolina as a clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC). I attended Wright State University located in Dayton, Ohio where I was born and raised. There I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2011) and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (2014). I strive to make a positive impact on others, while guiding them to recognize their ability to become the person they desire to be, through any given circumstance, hardship, or experience. I have found that my work as a counselor for the past 9 years has allotted me the opportunity to do just that! It should be said that there is never a dull moment in therapy with me, as I enjoy laughing, making others laugh, and creating an organic and relaxed environment for my clients.

Good day to you! I’m Tammy, a licensed professional counselor, board certified rehabilitation counselor, psychometrist and trauma specialist with 18 years of experience providing therapeutic interventions (counseling/therapy, psychological testing and clinical assessment). I do believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. My therapeutic orientation is Person Centered (Rogerian); However, I enjoy using an integrative approach to helping others reach their individualized goals in treatment. This includes the use of movies, books, and expressive arts as educational tools and a means to further explore aspects of our lives without the discomfort of directly talking about the experience(s), if those memories are too sensitive to explore in the very beginning. One of the most inspiring messages I received in the beginning of my career was this: Good therapy doesn’t look like therapy at all, but like a very good conversation. Some may disagree with this, but I’ve found that building a therapeutic alliance is essential in helping guide others toward the outcomes they so desire. So let’s have that very good conversation. You’re on a path toward healing, and I’d very much enjoy accompanying you on what may seem like a long, scary, and lonely road. A little about me: I am a native of northeast Georgia. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Georgia and a masters degree in Rehabilitation Psychology from the University of Wisconsin. I’m a mother of three (17, 14 - special needs, 8) and huge fan of all things Disney, Marvel/MCU, Supernatural, and penguins (because I believe them to be the cutest, silliest of all creatures)! I enjoy time with family and friends, practicing capoeira, graphic design, walking around aimlessly in bookstores, attending conventions, and spreading positive light as best I can.

How to find counseling in Omega

Finding the best therapist close by in Omega can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Omega. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Omega, 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 Omega 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.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Omega area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Omega, elsewhere in Tift, or in the greater state of Georgia.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega, 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 31775 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 Omega 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 Omega 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 Omega, 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.

Omega 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.
