16 years of experience as a therapist

I am a licensed therapist who has worked with clients for 16 years helping people understand, manage, cope with and overcome daily-life and life-span difficulties, struggles and challenges. I strongly believe that the suffering of people can be relieved through nonjudgmental, unconditional positive regard and support. I have witnessed many people experience relief from distress and improved quality of life by using skills they hadn’t acquired during upbringing or education. These skills are actually possessed by everyone, but have yet to be discovered and developed. I’ve been honored to witness this happen for people through counseling support and collaboration guided by the individual’s desires and hopes. Reaching out for assistance is a difficult first step to make and takes courage. You have taken this step by coming to BetterHelp for a client-counselor match, and I look forward to accompanying you on your journey.

25 years of experience as a therapist

I have been an elementary teacher (12 years), and a therapist for over 25 years. During this time, I have gained a vast knowledge in working with families and individuals. It is important to understand that we are all products of a particular family system and the influence that family has/had on our lives. Helping clients to make sense of their purpose in life and finding the optimum way to go about living, is paramount to me! I am certified in TF-CBT therapy, which is helping those who have experienced sexual, physical, and emotional trauma to move past the devastating effects on their life. I also utilize cognitive behavioral approaches such as Choice Theory (William Glasser), REBT (Albert Ellis), and other therapeutic modalities to assist a client in understanding how their choices and thinking can change their daily lives. My personal philosophy is that we become a therapeutic alliance together to problem solve and to gain insights into what is not working in your life, and then work collaboratively together to find effective change. I also believe that building meaningful relationships in life can make life rewarding for anyone, and that it is possible to achieve this with guidance and effort. Thankfully, I have been blessed in the ability to work with men, women, and children from all walks of life, cultures, and ages. They have given more to me than I ever was able to return to them. I like to believe that I can learn and grow each day from every interaction I am blessed to have with others. I'm hoping it will be you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

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.

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

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

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Tennille 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 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 Tennille.

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 from a therapist. A Tennille 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 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 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 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 Tennille, 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.

Tennille 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.
