7 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have enjoyed being a therapist for the past 7 years, helping clients with all mental health difficulties. I live a vastly fulfilling life with my family of a wife, 6 kids, 4 cats, and my loving Yorkie named Reggie. I am extensively qualified in using CBT and Gottman couples therapy. I will help you in our sessions to overcome insecurities and develop the skills you need to feel secure, prepared, and proud. You will feel better as a person and learn real solutions for what you need to do. You’ll gain 1) coping tools - including developing better habits, routines, and self care strategies, 2) relationship tools - including improving conversation, being able to comfortably navigate conflict, learning how to avoid relationship-ruining habits, and promoting a more positive perspective, and 3) confidence building tools - including growing a more confident mindset, doing favorite hobbies, performing good mental health activities, and having a future plan for both the short term and long term to live a satisfying, secure life.

Your sessions will be safe, and within a supportive environment where you explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a non-judgmental setting. It is your space to feel understood, and validated which creates a sense of emotional safety and encourages you to be open, and consider the deeper questions we discuss about your life. There will be opportunities for you to discuss anxiety, stress, depressive feelings, grief and loss, life transitions, professional/career issues, life changes, trauma, and relationship issues (personal/professional).

We all have our own answers inside. Sometimes we just need some help getting there. You have demonstrated a willingness to grow, and by being here, you are motivated to end your suffering. You can. My husband died suddenly when I was 35, so I understand devastating loss and know how to navigate the grieving process. I consequently had to overcome addiction, so likewise, I understand how difficult it can be to move beyond that. I have a tremendous amount of experience with Bipolar Depression and a personal understanding of the challenges it presents. With age comes experience, and mine has taught me how to move far beyond listening, and truly hear. Over my decade of experience, It has been my deep pleasure to watch people learn about, and become aware of their true selves. With this comes a release from pain and a sense of purpose and well-being. If you are willing to work a bit, and risk a bit, you are ready to engage in the therapeutic process. It is a life changing experience, and I am looking forward to helping you find your way.

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi! I'm Megan. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) as well as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and I am here to help you! I bring with me 10 years of counseling experience. I earned my BS from Colorado State University in Human Development and Family Studies in 2003 and I earned my MA in Counseling and Human Services from the University of Colorado in 2005. I use an integrative approach to Mental Health and Overall Wellness using coaching methods and interventions that encourage the balance of mind, body and soul. I merge mindfulness coaching, life coaching and cognitive behavioral therapy to treat individuals seeking help with anxiety, emotional regulation, stress relief, life transitions, and coping skills. I am warm, quirky and supportive. I love a good laugh. It brings me joy to help others realize their potential and feel EMPOWERED. I believe in balance and moderation. I believe that we are ALL capable of changing things that are less than desirable in our lives. I believe we all have the potential to be better and sometimes we just need an advocate to hold us accountable, give a different perspective and be our cheerleader. My belief that everyone is unique guides my individualized approach with clients. What works for one person may not necessarily work for another, so a big part of this process is figuring out what works best for YOU – from the type of overall therapeutic intervention to details like self-care or life choices. This may require you to do some “work” between sessions (Examples of assignments may include journaling or focusing on your breath). That being said, I like to focus on progress, not perfection. I will help you take some of the pressure off of trying to be perfect-in-every-way all the time. Sometimes it will still hurt. Sometimes you will be scared. Sometimes you will trip and be mad at me. But each time, I will be there to help you refocus and get back on your feet. It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happy life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Sugar City. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Sugar City, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Sugar City region and in the state of Idaho. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Sugar City or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Sugar City 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 Sugar City due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Sugar City 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.

Sugar City 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 Sugar City 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 Sugar City 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.

With a lot of people in ID, therapists 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 83448 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Sugar City 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 Sugar City.

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 Sugar City 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 Sugar City 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 Sugar City, 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.

Sugar City 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.
