25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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!!

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

My name is Garlena Rumsey, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Idaho. I am a Qualified Mental Health Professional (QMHP) in Oregon. I live in a border town in Idaho and Oregon is 4 miles away. I specialize in trauma with a certification of Clinical Counselor Trauma Professional 1 (CCTP-1). I work with a variety of diagnoses: PTSD, depression, anxiety, fears, abuse, substance abuse, and sexuality issues. Populations include adolescents, young adults, adults, the elderly, LGBTQ, sex offenders, and the developmentally challenged. I have worked with adolescents in different settings, shelter care, foster care, and group homes. I utilize CBT, Art, Games, and Narratives depending on the individual. Everyone is unique and one type of therapy may not work for another individual. A relationship is important to working with adolescents. Trying to navigate through the world as it is now can be extremely difficult. Couples counseling utilizing CBT, Art, Narratives, and homework creates knowledge and improves relationships. Honesty is important in working together for a better relationship. The mental health of each individual creates education and understanding. Setting boundaries with each other, learning to communicate, and utilizing active listening skills to be obtained. I am a Christian and give all the glory to God for bringing me to this place in my life. I feel I am guided in my work and focus on treating everyone with respect and dignity. I am culturally diverse in my approach and will not turn anyone away from doing counseling with me unless I feel I cannot help in any way. I believe God brings people together and if we are brought together, it must be a God thing. I am accepting of religions different than mine and consider myself spiritual rather than religious.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Ucon 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 Ucon 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Ucon 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 Ucon 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 Ucon 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Ucon 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 Ucon 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 Ucon 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 83401 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 Ucon counselor?

Before seeing your Ucon 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 Ucon.

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 Ucon 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 Ucon 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 Ucon, 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.

Ucon 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.
