40 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Idaho and have been proving therapy to adults, families and children for over 47 years. My approach is to listen to the client’s story and help them define what they would like their future story to be. I am interested in not only what is not going well in your life but also what is going well and why you think that is so. I believe in using what works to overcome what does not. Most people have not come this far in life without a good number of skills and abilities that have worked for them. My task is to help you discover what those skills are and then help you use those skills to overcome the challenges you are having. I present ideas and observations and most importantly questions for you to consider. I do not see change happening as a result of what I tell you but rather it comes from what you ultimately tell yourself. I have come to believe that our lack of progress is due to either not knowing what we want or only wanting to do what we know. I encourage questions about the process of our time together and ask for feedback to assess what you feel was helpful and what was not. It is important to me that you feel you are making progress toward what you want to have different in your current situation. We will develop a plan together so that we are both clear about what direction you want to go and what your life will be like when you accomplish your treatment goals.

26 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been working in the mental health field since 1995. I obtained my LCSW, in Idaho, in 2004. My LICSW was obtained in 2009 and my LMHC was obtained in 2001. Both of these licensures are in Washington. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, anger management, OCD, Eating Disorder, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. I also have experience working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. I have completed the Ramsey Finacial Coach master's training and am comfortable discussing financial concerns that may lead to anxiety or stress. I believe it is important for an individual seeking services to be able to participate in creating their treatment plan for therapy in order to assure that their goals are met. It is my opinion that a therapist should be open minded so that individuals are comfortable discussing difficult topics. I look forward to the opportunity to serve you. Thank you, Alicia

12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a clinical psychologist who is licensed in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. I have been practicing for 12 years. I have experience in helping clients with depression, stress and anxiety, codependency, and family conflicts. I specialize in treating trauma, dissociation, and abuse. I believe every person has unique ways to grow and heal so I try to tailor my treatment plan to your specific needs. Many therapists focus on learning general tools to help you change your thoughts and feelings, which is often helpful. However, my approach to therapy is to help you identify internal conflicts or traumas, and then practice ways to work through these difficulties. I use tools such as Gestalt Therapy, IFS, EMDR, Psychodynamic Therapy, and guided imagery. I also try to be gentle in my approach because people need a safe place to explore themselves. I know therapy can be challenging, but I also hope to make it rewarding and fun.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hazelton therapist?

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

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

Hazelton 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 Hazelton 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 Hazelton 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.

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

Before seeing your Hazelton 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 Hazelton.

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 Hazelton 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 Hazelton 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 Hazelton, 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.

Hazelton 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.
