20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, my name is Oliver Harper and I possess a wide range of clinical experiences working within residential settings for adolescents; short term acute care facilities as a clinician and consultant with adults and adolescents; worked in various communities of Metro Atlanta providing in-home therapy and maintained a private practice for 15 years. I graduated with an MS in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University; along with attending Seminary in Atlanta and obtained graduate degrees in Leadership and Apologetics. I also attended business school and worked on Wall Street and have undergraduate and graduate degrees in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. I have specialized and certificate training in REBT, Adlerian Psychology, DBT, and Parenting. I primarily use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy as my primary treatment modality as it is very effective in reducing stress and anxiety while providing pragmatic tools for effective living. Over my professional, life I have had significant exposure to working with traumatized clients and have learnt interventions to address its impact. I have authored two books. I also incorporate Stoic philosophy as a therapeutic intervention in the service of clients. My therapeutic skill set provides a compassionate inquiry into the lives of individuals challenged with childhood shadows induced by family dysfunction, trauma, alcoholism, anxiety, perfection tendencies, and an overwhelming need for approval and validation. My clinical training will facilitate clients to connect the dots between then and now and integrate the fragmentation at the root of their maladaptive patterns. I am a lifelong learner and have dedicated my life to being of service;I believe in the innate capacity of individuals and their potential to be their own rescue with guidance and to know that there is something distinct, unique, and specific about each of us and my clinical task is to guide each individual to share that belief. The therapeutic relationship is a sacred trust and it is a privilege to be a witness to the inner world of others and to support them in their discovery, recovery, and integration of their best self. Allow me to journey with you and I promise to be present with you all the way to a better version of yourself by strengthening your identity capital.

Hi, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I have over 20 years of experience working with adults, teenagers and children. I received my higher education later in my life.

Accomplishing this has made me a much more insightful, respectful, sensitive, compassionate and empathetic human with others. I have gained a lot of experience working with the elderly, adults, teenagers and children. I have worked with clients with many concerns including, depression, anxiety, stress, OCD, ADHD, trauma, emotional abuse, domestic violence, parenting problems, alcohol use and drug use and co-dependency. My specialty is ADHD with adults, teenagers and children. I have attended several ADHD workshops and that together with my experience of working with teenagers and children having ADHD, has helped me to become knowledgeable about the disorder. My counseling style is warm, caring and interactive with my clients. My approach with my clients, combines Cognitive-Behavioral, Motivational Interviewing, Humanistic, Mindfulness and Psychodynamic counseling. Our treatment plan will be tailored to meet your unique and specific needs. You have shown courage and strength when you take a step towards seeking help for a more fulfilling, happier life.

Hi! Welcome to my page. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC in Georgia and South Carolina) & Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC nationally); with over a decade and a half of experience in helping people to move forward. Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, or dissatisfied with your life? Are you experiencing a situation that you think no one will understand? Perhaps your situation is rare and you are not certain if what you are experiencing is real? Are you ready for help that is actually helpful? Is guilt or shame stopping you from getting to the life you want? Where ever you are and whatever you are going through, I am ready to help you figure out the first or next steps. Are you ready to explore options, make choices and start living a better life? Sometimes when we try to change it impacts the system around us, sometimes leading to outcomes we did not necessarily intend, but have no control over. I understand that no two people are the same and that every individual is to be respected as unique with very different feelings, actions, thoughts, experiences, and history. My holistic approach to treatment is tailored to you, an individual. Whether you only need a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to grow and find your own way, or you need help to deal with long term suffering, or someone to make the journey through some dark place, then I am waiting to go with you. I have a very open, honest, engaging style that incorporates humor, metaphor and encouragement into the therapeutic process, a process that is self-directed and empowering for you my client. If I am wrong about any of this please let me know. I utilize various theoretical approaches including: person-centered, humanistic, existential, Adlerian, brief psycho-dynamic, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT); often framed in a skilled helper model. I have years of experience working with both disabilities (any type) and clinical mental health. I likewise specialized in technology assisted counseling, I have a proven record of counseling results including through the delivery of services via text based communication, and have utilized technology as an adjunct to face to face counseling during most of my professional career. I am waiting to begin where you are and start on any of these: Personal growth / development Anxiety / Depression Adjustment or re-adjustment Couple / parent concerns Anger management Interpersonal / social skills Disability (including psychiatric / invisible disabilities) Veterans Acute stress, trauma, post trauma (PTSD) Guilt / shame Bereavement / complex grief And more! Education: I earned my Bachelor's degrees, a BA in psychology and a BS in Chemistry from Arkansas Tech University, While working my way through school, I worked with persons with disabilities and also with persons seeking recovery from addictions. I earned my Master's degree in Counseling from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. While pursuing my Master's I worked for the division of services for the blind, helping persons with visual impairment and blindness. I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness. Experience: I have over a decade and a half of counseling experiences (rehabilitation and clinical mental health) including many referrals from community agencies in situations where the combination of factors was too varied for the system to address. In addition to my education and typical work experiences, I am also a combat veteran who served as a medic in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and have extensive training in helping with trauma, both mental/emotional and physical. I have a solid record of encouraging and challenging people to do the hard work needed to reach successful outcomes. I became interested in technology assisted counseling while working with persons who relied upon assistive-technology for face to face and social interaction, and yet due to the limitations of the portable technology and complexity of synchronous communication I quickly realized that asynchronous, text based communication was the only feasible solution for this person to ever benefit from counseling. Freddy L. Honeycutt is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC).

Confidence + Clarity + Comunication = THRIVING (Creating Your Life Avatar) What is keeping you from “your” success? Are you disappointed with the results of some life choices, debilitated by emotional pain, under or over-challenged at work, lacking motivation, unable to forgive yourself or others, indecisive, financially insecure……..fear not, there is a way out of personal bondage and into personal freedom. My name is Whitley Greene, Licensed Professional Counselor for twenty-five years and Board Certified Coach for five years, serving individuals and families in private practice, behavior health hospitals, churches, schools, and organizations toward goal achievement and healthy living. I have earned a Specialist (Ed.S.), and four Master (MS) degrees in the fields of Counseling and Education Leadership. I am certified in "Psychology of the Web & Internet Addictions" and "Applied Positive Psychology: Finding Mastery and Flourishing" How can I help YOU? My philosophy regarding personal success is to guide you toward clarifying your desires, wants, and needs which leads to PURPOSE. When you identify what is important, strengthen your confidence, and communicate assertively you will thrive while creating your Life Avatar (who you want to be in the world). My personality and style as a counselor/coach are to be a compassionate listener, intuitive and thought-provoking questioner, and inspirational goal-setter, with clients experiencing enjoyable intrinsic and extrinsic rewards for their hard work. Counseling is only as successful as you determine it will be. The process of growing from emotional pain, navigating obstacles on the path to success, enriching relationships, altering habits, or welcoming forgiveness into your life, all takes energy, time, and effort. As we journey down the path of success together, we will add a little humor, perhaps a few tears, and celebrate achievements along the way. As an accomplished athlete, world traveler, lifelong learner, enthusiastic community volunteer, sensible financial investor, and non-denominational Christian, I would be delighted to partner with you to enhance the joy and success in your life. Once I have the opportunity to know your unique personality, how you wish to be encouraged with your goals, and genuine motivation, we can get to work on clearing the way for your elevated joy and happiness. I prefer to use video or telephone for our sessions and e-mail/text for communication between sessions.

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 Shellman, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Shellman region and in the state of Georgia. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Shellman or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Shellman 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 Shellman 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 Shellman 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Shellman 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 Shellman 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 Shellman 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 39886 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Shellman 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 Shellman.

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 Shellman 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 Shellman 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 Shellman, 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.

Shellman 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.
