Serving more than fourteen years as a Georgia licensed professional and certified rehabilitation counselor has provided me with the opportunity to address individuals' needs who experience depression, anxiety, interpersonal and family challenges, grief and loss, caretaking challenges, trauma and stress, domestic violence, work, career concerns, disability management (neurocognitive and neurodevelopmental, TBI and vision), mood as well as psychotic and related disorders. Everyone experiences challenges in their life, and my approach is to find out where individuals tend to get "stuck", and enable them to identify concerns in order to move forward. Having a person centered approach that encourages exploration, resolution and wholeness. Engagement, encourages exploration and resolution of who we are, which is (mind) thoughts,(emotions) feelings, (body) physical and spirit (soul, rituals, beliefs, traditions, shadows) selves along with perceptions and blockages related to mother/father wounding. Various approaches are used in sessions including cognitive behavioral, psycho-dynamic, dialectical, narrative, mindfulness, attachment, emotionally and solution focused therapies.

I have had the honor of working with people from all walks of life, providing support to those affected by stress, trauma, and mental health symptoms for over a decade. I believe in creating a safe and welcoming space to process thoughts and feelings and identify your needs. Your services will be based on a professional relationship characterized by trust and respect while collaborating on your personally tailored treatment goals. I vow to meet you where you are and move along at your pace. I acknowledge the courage and motivation it takes to seek support and work on a more fulfilling and happier life. Hope, safety, and healthy relationships (first with oneself and then with others), lead to healing and mental wellness. The process is attained through connection, reflection, and foundation. The primary goal is to help you identify and cope more effectively with problems in daily living and to deal with internal conflicts to achieve more satisfying personal and interpersonal relationships. This purpose is accomplished by 1. Establishing healthy rapport, connection, and attachment in a nurturing and safe environment. 2. Increasing personal awareness of obstacles and strengths. 3. Taking personal responsibility to make the changes necessary to attain your goals. 4. Identifying specific psychotherapy goals. 5. Utilizing all available community, medical, and self-help resources. Psychotherapy involves a large commitment of time, money, and energy, so you should be mindful about the services you select. For psychotherapy to be most successful, you will be encouraged to actively work on things talked about, both during sessions and at home. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to address them as they arise. You will be so glad that you invested in yourself during this time of therapy.

Hello everyone, my name is Christian Waller. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my Master's degree from Augusta University in 2017. Since my graduation, I have provided both individual and group therapeutic services to children, teens, and adults. Although my primary focus is working with processing trauma and reducing the effects of traumatic stress, I have gained experience working with anxiety, depression, OCD, anxieties/concerns with discovering/exploring sexuality and/or gender expression, and other areas that individuals would like to process in session. I have been trained in providing several evidence-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and I tend to use techniques from each in my therapeutic approach. In TF-CBT, I learned about the ABCs and I thoroughly believe that affect (emotions), behaviors, and cognitions are all related in how we experience our own realities. I believe that goals are substantial in the therapeutic process, and although they might be hard to discover, they give us a guideline and somewhat of an endpoint. Not everything can be accomplished in a session, but short-term goals and long-term goals can help us maintain our focus. No goal is set in stone; sometimes when we start off, we realize we want a redirection or to tweak it, and that is totally okay as well. Having options and different routes can be overwhelming at times, but they also tend to show us that we have more choices than we initially thought we had. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion regardless of gender, age, sexuality, or any other difference. Being able to recognize and become open to both differences and similarities help us create a more secure environment and it allows us to figure out how to meet your personal and specific needs. I look forward to working with you.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders.

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 Vidette 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 Vidette area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette, 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 30830 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 Vidette 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 Vidette 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 Vidette, 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.

Vidette 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.
