The city began as Harrisburg when it was settled by Noah Harris in 1867 but when the Gas City Land Company was founded in 1892 due to the natural gas found in the area, the name was changed. Although the gas has been used up, the city’s name remains the same.

You can also find some excellent mental health care experts in and around Gas City who are experienced in all types of mental and emotional illnesses and conditions. Whether you are in need of intense therapy or just have some questions or concerns, there is a counselor in the Gas City area for you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana. I have worked in the field for 30 years in many capacities, but most extensively as a mental health counselor. My experience is predominantly with adults, young adults and couples of all configurations. My specialty areas include anxiety, relationship issues, assertiveness training, mindfulness techniques, mediation, self-image, and grief and loss. Counseling services offer people the opportunity to heal suffering, to increase well-being and to explore and ultimately move through emotional and psychological obstacles in their lives. It is my belief that effective counseling is guided by the expertise you have about yourself and your willingness to enter into a mutually respectful and professional relationship with a counselor. The theoretical basis for my practice is Gestalt Theory, which emphasizes present moment awareness, which is shaped by patterns of our past, and realness. I am a trained therapist, yes, but first and foremost, I am a human being, with flaws, fears and failings. What I offer my clients is a human connection and a safe space for them to also be human, without judgement. I look forward to our work together.

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely you are going through something really challenging and I am proud of you for taking the brave step of seeking help. When looking for a therapist, it's important to find one whose style and experience feels right for you. The relationship and comfort level between the client and therapist can make or break your therapy experience. I want this to be a comforting and safe space for you to share your feelings. I would like to share a little about myself to help you decide if I might be a good match for you. My name is Tianna and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my undergraduate degree in Human Development/Family Studies and Master's degree in Social Work from Indiana University in 2009. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including: home-based, schools, youth shelters, residential programs, and inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. I have years of experience working with individuals of all ages and a wide array of challenges. Some of these challenges include depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, substance abuse, divorce, parenting struggles and crisis stabilization. Growing up in an impoverished area of northern Indiana, I experienced or witnessed many of these issues first hand, which helps me have a greater sense of understanding and empathy for my clients and this is also what lead me down my career path. My style is warm, compassionate and nonjudgmental but I am also honest and direct with my clients. I believe my clients are the experts on their lives and determine the direction and depth of therapy. Using strength-based and solution focused approaches, I hope to draw out a deeper understanding of the challenges my clients face while guiding them to find the solutions by building on the skills, knowledge and abilities they often don't know they have. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist clients in learning how their thoughts influence their feelings and behaviors often keeping them from achieving the progress they hope for. I also believe in the benefits of mindfulness and breathing exercises to help with regulating emotions. I value the feedback from my clients and encourage them to let me know if something we are doing is not working for them. On a personal level, I took several years off to stay home with my twins and also raise my teenage niece. We have moved frequently due to my husband's career who also works in mental health. In addition to Indiana we have lived in Texas and Tennessee. I enjoy outdoor adventures, yoga and interior design in my free time.

I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have been providing therapeutic services over the past 7 years. I have worked with clients on a variety of mental health and life struggles such as: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues, parenting issues, and trying to figure out what comes next in life. In addition, I have worked with many teens and adults on their LGBQTAI+ journey of finding, accepting, and loving themselves. I always want my clients to feel welcome and accepted when working with me. I want clients to feel comfortable because oftentimes they are sharing very personal information and I always want to be respectful of that. I tailor the therapeutic approach that I use based on the needs of the individual client. Therapy is not a one size fits all and I don't believe in getting stuck in one certain therapy type. Some approaches that I draw from are cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, client focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. No matter what approach I may use, I always look at my clients with a strengths perspective framework.

I hold a Masters and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology and have been licensed as a mental health or professional counselor (LMHC) since 1994. Over the past 25 years, I have worked as an individual counselor with college-aged students and adults in clinical, private practice, and non-profit settings. I also have experience working as an Indiana University (Indianapolis) associate professor in their undergraduate and graduate counseling and psychology programs. My specialty as a counselor is helping you to quickly identify and understand your blind spots and move beyond them. Blind spots are those beliefs or areas of your life that often keep us stuck repeating the same patterns that often cause relationship problems, depression, anxiety, and other issues. Many times in our life, we find ourselves stuck or overwhelmed, not knowing how to move forward. As a counselor, I will encourage, support, and assist you in moving beyond your current situation. Using theories or techniques of cognitive psychology, I help identify the distorted thought patterns that no longer work for you and teach you the tools necessary to grow and move beyond your current challenge. Counseling can help you move beyond a state of helplessness by examining new possibilities and helping you make the changes necessary to create the life you want. The counseling relationship is important to the successful outcome of therapy. By building a relational foundation, you can lessen your defenses and open yourself to the possibilities for change. This foundation enables you to explore yourself and your situation, understand self-defeating behaviors, and make the necessary steps for change. You are an active participant in the counseling process. My approach is warm and empathetic, yet also direct and authentic. It's important to remember that as a counselor, I'm not here to judge you but rather to support, encourage, and guide you as you navigate through challenges.

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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Gas City or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Gas 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 Gas City 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 Gas City 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Gas City, Indiana working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Gas City above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Gas City helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Gas City therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Gas City therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Gas 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 lot of people in IN, providers 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 46933 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Gas 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Gas City, 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.

Gas 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?

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.
