I am a licensed professional counselor in Georgia with over 20 years of counseling experience. I have worked with clients presenting a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, social behavior, and school issues. I am also a nationally certified school counselor. My experience in the school setting has equipped me with the skills and knowledge to effectively help children, adolescents, and their families. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I employ a holistic and integrative counseling approach. I will tailor communications and treatment plans to meet the unique and specific needs of each client. In the first sessions, I focus on applying a person-centered approach which lays the foundation for a healthy client/counselor relationship. A trusting therapeutic relationship is important for creating a space where the client feels comfortable and safe to share his or her feelings and experiences. As therapy progresses, I will utilize alternate counseling strategies to assist the client in progressing forward. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Hello! I believe we each have the potential to live the quality of life we want for ourselves and those we cherish. It has become my life's work and joy to support others in creating that best life. However you define happiness and fulfillment is what I want for you. I believe you are the power of the human spirit and trust you to know what you need. Seeking help is difficult and knowing that the counselor you connect with will not judge you or shame you helps you take those first steps toward the life you dream of. It is my job to help create a safe space for you to explore yourself in ways that support making positive and affirming life decisions. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 14 years experience working with adolescents and adults; I am currently licensed in Georgia and in Oregon. My own life journey has been one of facing truth and healing emotionally and spiritually. Mine is a life-long journey and by supporting others, I find my life's purpose and meaning. I have learned that being in relationships that are based on trust and acceptance allows the freedom to explore and heal. I can offer you a professional relationship intended to support your personal empowerment through genuine regard and non-judgment. Many times over the course of our lives, we encounter stressful and complicated circumstances. Have you ever wondered if you are truly happy? Have you thought that if you were different, others would love you? Have you felt insecure, depressed, and anxious about who you are and the life decisions you've made? Well, I believe we all have, and these thoughts and feelings are not abnormal or bad, rather they are normal and typical of people struggling with self-worth and personal dignity. Know that you do not need to face your life's obstacles alone. Spending time in therapy can offer you the space and skills to feel confident and capable as the person you are. My hope is to help create the conditions whereby you feel empowered, resilient, self-compassionate, valuable, and lovable. Together we can decide what therapeutic goals you have and how best we can achieve them together. If you choose to invite me into your life, I will honor who you are and who you chose to be.

As an openly gay, transgender therapist I offer a unique, lived perspective to my clients who are part of the LGBTQIA+. My greatest passion is to help those struggling to make the transition from survival to "thrival". Whether that's through providing therapy for depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, trauma, Autism Spectrum Disorder, or offering support for other experiences such as life transitions, grief/loss, LGBTQIA+ related issues, compassion fatigue, burnout, or any of life's other ups and downs. I am licensed in Georgia and have worked for a Community Mental Health facility for over 7 years. During my time there I have gained a myriad of experience with mental health issues and disorders. I take a collaborative approach in working with my clients to help them identify and achieve their goals. I incorporate traditional talk therapy in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities. I work with my clients to find the best fit for them, whether that's using Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Dialectal Behavior Therapy, or Narrative Therapy. I'm usually available in the evenings, Monday through Friday, and in the mornings/early afternoons on Saturday and Sunday. If you don't see a time or date that works for you on my schedule, please don't hesitate to message me for other options.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Riddleville 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.

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 Riddleville 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 Riddleville 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 31035 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 Riddleville 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 Riddleville 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 Riddleville, 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.

Riddleville 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.
