Thank you for taking the time to view my profile! The field of psychology and behavior has been my academic and career path for over 10 years. My work is my passion and I enjoy watching others grown and flourish on their paths. I completed my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with concentrations in clinical rehabilitation and psychology of addictions in 2006 through Purdue University. While pursuing this degree, I aided in a longitudinal research study focused on intelligence and information processing through the Purdue Institute for Behavioral Sciences. While earning my Master’s, I volunteered for Riley’s Children Hospital as a behavior therapist with autistic children. During the same time, I also completed two practicums and internships (university setting and corrections), focusing my skills aiding adults with intense personal struggles and family dysfunction. While working with adults, I found my passion in those struggling daily with emotional concerns and addictions. My Master of Arts in clinical psychology was completed in 2008 at University of Indianapolis with a concentration in mental health counseling. Since then, I have worked in outpatient as well as inpatient settings, while also teaching psychology part-time as adjunct faculty for a local college. Thank you again for taking the time to learn some history about me and I look forward to sharing more of what I have learned through experience with you on your journey.

You want something to change, but don't know where to start. Maybe it's how you feel: Sometimes your thoughts, feelings, emotions, stories, and sensations try to get in the way of moving toward what's meaningful to you. Maybe it's how your relationship feels: Sometimes the communication patterns between the two of you can erode trust and commitment, leaving your relationship bond damaged or broken. Maybe you're haunted by your past: Like broken glass, many traumatic memories can be fragmented and jagged, stored in your mind and body, emotionally wounding you over and over again, until you're left dejected and exhausted. We're wounded in relationships... and we're healed in relationships. Let me help. Here's what I believe: Things can be different. You can effect change in your life, on the inside and on the outside. You can feel better and get better. You can move toward what's meaningful to you. Here's How I Can Help: Internal "Stuff": The thoughts, feelings, emotions, stories, and sensations that try to prevent movement toward what's meaningful to you. External "Stuff": The conflict that lives in the space between committed people that erodes trust and commitment, preventing movement toward the bond. Traumatic Memories: Fragments of emotional intensity trapped in the mind and body, triggering cascades of turbulence that interfere with daily living. I'm a therapist and clinical counselor based in Westfield, IN, and I'm about helping you move toward what's meaningful to you, when your thoughts and feelings try to get in the way. Know this: I want this to work as much as you do, and I will never judge you.

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello and welcome! My name is Dana Teeter and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana. I take a holistic approach to health and wellness, incorporating a variety of mind management techniques, as well as talk therapy, CBT, yoga, breath work, and other mind- body exercises to address mindset, negative thinking, intrusive thoughts, and coping with negative emotions. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. I have over 10 years experience working with children and teens in the school environment as a counselor/ social worker. I have extensive experience providing services for students struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, and childhood trauma, as well as children and adolescents struggling with areas of identity, self-esteem and self-worth, interpersonal skills and emotional regulation. In addition, I have spent the last 8 years working at home with my two sons, both of who have been diagnosed with ADHD. This has given me the unique perspective of working with students with ADHD as both a social worker, and as a parent. I also have experience writing IEPs, 504 plans, behavior intervention plans, and goals for students with ADHD and have spent time working with school professionals and families to implement these plans successfully. While most of my experience in the clinical field has been with children and adolescents, I have worked with families and adults as well. I also have a personal interest in mental health and wellness, and enjoy working with clients from various backgrounds to address what is weighing them down, assess their mental health and overall wellness needs, and develop a plan to improve their own ability to self-regulate emotions and better manage their mental health and wellness needs. I have experience using CBT, mindfulness, yoga, progressive muscle relaxation, breathing techniques, and a variety of other holistic approaches to managing negative thoughts and emotions. I am also Yogafit certified and recently earned my black belt in Taekwondo, as I have found these practices to be crucial to managing my own mental health and wellness. As a certified Revelation Wellness® instructor, I understand the importance of taking care of the mind, body and spirit when addressing health and wellness, and I want to educate others about the neuroplasticity of our brains and our bodies ability to heal themselves when giving a supportive, healing environment. I enjoy studying the mind, body, spirit connection and using education as a tool to empower my clients. I love meeting new people and learning from others; I believe we all have a story to share and have found my own healing as I have shared my story with others. I hope to create a safe environment for clients to share their own stories and struggles, as well as to learn more about their own mental health and set goals for future growth. I enjoy educating and empowering my clients to become an expert on their own mental health and look forward to collaborating with clients to help them find freedom to live their best lives.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Alamo. 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 Alamo, 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 in the Alamo region and in the state of Indiana. 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 Alamo 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

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 Alamo 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 Alamo 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 Alamo 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 Alamo may not take health insurance, some in the state of Indiana 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 Indiana 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 Alamo?

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

Alamo 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 Alamo 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 Alamo 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 IN, 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 47916 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 Alamo counselor?

Before seeing your Alamo 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 Alamo.

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 Alamo 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 Alamo 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 Alamo, Indiana 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.

Alamo 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.
