I view therapy as the journey to reconcile the story we have written for our life with the reality that exists. I am a licensed mental health and clinical addictions counselor in Indiana. I have acquired experience in a variety of settings that include: drug court, community mental health, university counseling center, and private practice. I have been an adjunct psychology professor for undergraduate and graduate studies at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN. I have expertise in treating addictions, mood disorders, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, self-esteem issues, and pornography addiction. I received my master's degree in clinical psychology from the University of Indianapolis. I trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic theory, dialectical behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy. A therapist must perform good self-care in order to provide good care to others. I achieve my self-care by playing guitar, piano, fishing, and playing with my kids. I look forward to making progress with you on your journey to a healthier you!

Hello! If you are reading this, you have found Better Help and probably have a ton of questions about therapy and this whole process. Is online counseling right for you? Am I the right counselor to talk too? I can totally relate to that moment when you start the search for a therapist and make the decision to seek help for yourself. Therapy is scary, at least it was for me when I started. I remember the moment when I sat down on the couch across from a stranger with their clipboard and pen and I was expected to bare my soul. Funny, I was supposed to tell this person all my problems and through words they were magically going to help me… Well it worked! Though therapy is a little more than just talking and Better Help is online therapy, I still believe in the therapy process and my ability to help you during this dark time. My name is Christina and I have been a client before. Today I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for almost seven years. Throughout those seven years I have learned and come to believe that therapy can help! I graduated from The University of Southern Indiana with my Bachelors in Social Work in 2012 and my Masters in Social Work in 2013. I started working for a local mental health agency, providing therapy services to adults, children, adolescents, families, and couples. After six and half years I made the choice to step away from the big mental health agency concept and start a private practice so that I can truly connect and help my clients on a more personal level. I provide my clients with understanding, knowledge, and my own raw emotion in attempts to connect with them, understand their unique situation, and join together in a journey that will lead my clients to overall better health. While I am new to providing online therapy, I am very experience in making a connection with my clients, meeting them where they are in life, and helping them navigate through dark times. My passion is working with individuals, families, and couples in identifying areas in their life that are in need of a change. This change can be through physical health, by learning better eating habits, developing weight loss goals, improving how they treat their body, and/or improving their sleep and physical activity. Many of my clients I work with are working towards more positive thought processes, acceptance of the things they can’t change, healing from past relationships, and healing from past grief, shame, and guilt that has kept their minds and bodies in a state of depression, anxiety, trauma, and anger. I deliver and match the energy and motivation my client brings to me because I truly understand what it is like to experience pain, depression, anxiety, and need to change. I will work with you to reach your full potential and achieve your therapy goals. With a little hard work, determination, and wiliness to achieve change you will leave therapy being thankful for that moment when you decided to go to Better Help.com, find a therapist, and sign on to your first therapy session with a stranger who didn’t actually expect you to bare your soul. Honestly, I just expect you to be broken and honest, just like me!

Hi! I am a LCSW with 6 years of therapy experience. I have worked in several areas of expertise including depression, anxiety, stress management, addictions, trauma, parenting, relationships, domestic violence, and communication and boundaries. I take a client centered, strengths based, approach when meeting with patients, focusing on solutions as well as hidden strengths, resources, and individuals' areas of concern. I come from a community mental health background, in which I learned to identify immediate needs, collaboratively care plan with the patient, and work at the patient's pace. I use person-first language and focus on how people have survived and overcome obstacles. I have experience specifically with domestic violence issues, working with perpetrators of domestic violence as well as focusing on communication and boundary issues in relationships. Each patient is unique, and I will tailor my approach to best meet your needs.

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 Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana 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.

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Cynthiana due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana 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 47612 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 Cynthiana counselor?

Before seeing your Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana.

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 Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana 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 Cynthiana, 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.

Cynthiana 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.
