Tyrone has been home to several notable people, including three professional football players, making football a favorite pastime for the city. In many ways life can be equated to playing football, in that you are constantly reaching for goals and often there are obstacles in your way.

If you are facing obstacles in your life, such as mental illness, it can help to talk to someone outside the situation. Tyrone-area counselors are available now to help you overcome your own obstacles. Contact a licensed therapist today.

I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in the state of Georgia. I have experience working with adults, adolescents, and children both in individual and group settings. I also have experience working with couples and families. I have facilitated psycho-educational groups on anger management, healthy relationships, emotional intelligence, and effective communication. Some of the clinical issues I have the most experience with include depression, anxiety, and stress management. I have been able to assist individuals who are struggling in the areas of home/social life, work life, and in the educational arena. Additionally I have assisted individuals struggling with Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Borderline Personality Disorder. A main focus in my treatment is establishing an effective therapeutic relationship with the individual first, in order to gain their trust so that they will feel comfortable with the mode of therapy and interventions utilized in treatment. Working collaboratively with individuals on their treatment goals is a priority throughout treatment. I encourage open communication regarding what therapeutic techniques and approaches work best for the individual so as to ensure the best therapeutic experience. My counseling styles include the person-centered approaches to help individuals achieve their therapeutic goals. I believe that each person is capable of discovering their own "self-integrity" (Being true to yourself, your values, and your word... being true to who you are, what you say, and what you believe). My counseling approach focuses on the here and now, and as a therapist, I assist the individual in the process of finding their own answers. The goal is to help the individual find hope, decrease anxiety, and find greater "self integrity". I also include in my counseling styles the use of brief solution-focused therapy because I believe that specific changes can occur in a brief time when that time in therapy is spent focused on a particular issue. Information is gathered on day one to learn what changes the individual wants to have occur. The origin of the problem is not of importance, but instead, we focus on defining the problem. In this future focused approach I help the individual to find the areas where they want change. Solution Focused Brief Therapy utilizes a therapeutic relationship to aid in brief alleviation of the problem the individual faces. I look forward to helping you to use your internal resources, as you discover your own self integrity in the process of becoming comfortable with who you are..

25 years of experience

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!

As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) having many years of experience, I have realized that client goals and outcome expectations can differ as much as therapeutic approaches. I use many different therapies in my work with couples and individuals, but I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy more than any other therapies. My belief is that treatments must be designed and implemented in collaboration with the couple or individual being counseled. Therefore, my goal is to provide the program and treatment that my patients are comfortable with, which may result in greater progress, in a shorter amount of time, resulting in fewer sessions. My specialties include marital and family issues as well as treatment for anxiety and stress related disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I also treat those patients having Anger Management and negative self image issues. In my private practice I have had countless successful outcomes with clients of all ages, but especially with adult couples and adult individuals. I truly believe I can help you or your loved ones build more positive and fulfilling futures. Please join with me in helping you to reach for , and achieve, a more positive and desirable lifestyle.

Unregulated stress, anxiety, depression, grief, and hopelessness can truly feel unbearable. Meaningful change is possible with the help of an experienced therapist. I believe therapy provides a safe environment to express yourself freely and make positive long-lasting changes in your life. As a team, we will work together to help gain awareness and compassion for where you have been, and help you get to where you want to be. My approach is based on what will be most helpful to you in establishing goals and creating the change you want to see. I use elements of cognitive behavioral theories along with mindfulness-based interventions. I specialize in addressing anxiety, depression, coping strategies, body-image/self-image, communication challenges, and managing stress. The scope of my experience has taught me how each client is different, and each client needs a treatment plan developed in collaboration with their therapist and tailored to their needs. I look forward to helping you overcome your barriers and accomplish your goals. Please contact me if you have any questions.

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.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Tyrone.

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 Tyrone, 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 Tyrone 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone, 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 30290 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone 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 Tyrone, 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.

Tyrone 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.
