I have been a therapist for 25 years and I feel that people know what's best and what they want for themselves. Many times they don't know how to get there though and need help, support and confidence in themselves to find their way. There are so many variables that get in the way including various forms of abuse, mental health issues, family issues, drug/alcohol addiction and abuse to name a few. I love to help clients work through their issues, restore confidence in themselves and look forward to their future! I am more of a client centered therapist and use mostly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and use some Existential Therapy. I love it when clients tell me "I come from a dysfunctional family." My response is always the same. Show me a functional family because I'm not sure one exists, especially in our present world! The point is that every family has some dysfunction, but there various degrees of dysfunction. Some are much worse than others. Let's talk the dysfunction(s)that has affected you the most! As a therapist it is so rewarding to help clients work through their issues and concerns and watch the positive changes start happening. We have so much available now to help clients with mental health concerns including therapy, medications, inpatient treatment and some very good outpatient treatment. If a person feels ashamed they have a mental health issue they shouldn't. It's very common and nothing to hide. Getting help is taking charge of your life!!

When you feel like you’re just spinning your wheels, therapy can help you gain the traction you need to get your life moving forward again. Therapy can help you learn how to stop struggling with such difficulties as worry, unhappiness, self-doubt, lack of motivation, loneliness, homesickness, or the pain of loss. Therapy can help you get unstuck from repeated struggles with yourself and difficulties with others. In our meetings, you and I will work together to identify the roadblocks that keep holding you back. I will assist you in creating permanent strategies to get past those roadblocks and start living the life you want to live. I am available for live sessions (video or phone) from early morning through afternoon on weekdays. Early risers, take note! Depending on the day, I may have morning appointments available as early as 5:00 AM Pacific/6:00 AM Mountain/7:00 AM Central/8:00 AM Eastern (and sometimes even earlier). I am licensed to provide therapy when you are physically located in California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Vermont.

I am a professional licensed counselor in the state of Idaho. Through counseling, I believe that everybody already has the tools to help themselves. As a counselor, it is my job to help others find those tools to work through difficult times and life problems. My theoretical approach is eclectic, emphasizing CBT, Person-Centered, and Art therapy. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life interested in challenging themselves to increase self-awareness and acceptance. I believe that each person is going to have individualized needs, and there is not a one-size fits’ all counseling approach. Counseling is a collaborative effort between client and clinician to make and meet goals and create meaningful life changes. Taking the first step to seek a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Hello and nice to meet you! My name is Hollie Fisher, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Idaho. My clinical approach is using cognitive behavioral therapy, focusing on the present in order to move to the future. My very basic approach is my belief that true healing occurs within relationships. We will establish a professional relationship built on trust, honesty and compassion. My professional background centers around 28 years working in the education setting: as a high school teacher for 26 years, an assistant principal, and finally as a school counselor. Because of this background, I have a very special place in my heart for adolescents. Growing up in today’s world brings so many challenges and obstacles for our youth, and this is where I can offer my assistance. Mental health is real, and students struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, bullying etc., but there is always hope that life will get better. I will work with your adolescent to develop skills to successfully overcome the challenges they face. I believe every young person deserves to live their best life. Even though my background centers around adolescents, my educational background and life experiences gives me a strong foundation to work with clients of all ages. I love helping people and believe in a very practical and solution focused approach to work through the problems that led you to counseling. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and I will do all that I can to accommodate your specific needs, meeting you where you are at while encouraging you to be the person you want to be. I look forward to meeting you and working with you in your journey to live your best life!

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 Grace, 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 Grace 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 Grace area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Grace 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 Grace 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 Grace may not take health insurance, some in the state of Idaho 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 Idaho 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 Grace, Idaho 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 Grace 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 Grace 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 Grace 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 Grace 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 Grace 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 ID, 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 83241 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 Grace 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 Grace 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 Grace, Idaho 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.

Grace 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.
