Huntertown, Indiana was originally called “The Opening” because it’s the site of what once was a natural forest clearing. Eventually, the town was officially named Huntertown after its founder, William T. Hunter. One of the first schools was the Perry Centre Seminary, built in 1856. The school closed for a very unusual reason—the entire faculty and all the students left to join the forces of the Union Army. Huntertown considers itself “A Great Place to Call Home.” When your mental health is doing as well as it should, you may not feel like opening up and letting friends and family support you through it.

Before you distance yourself from others, consider that talking to a professional mental health counselor in the Huntertown area can bring you to a place of closeness and be more accepting of support.

12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

As a therapist and social activist, I have a passion for supporting other world changers in being able to care for themselves while they do the hard work of making the world a better place. I have spent my career in the trenches of community and social activism. I have a passion for helping others and personally experienced the emotional toll this work can have on your personal life. As a person of faith, my work is grounded in my own spirituality but I also realize this does not safeguard us from compassion fatigue. I can help my clients to navigate the stresses of life to find ways to connect to natural and community based supports. My goal is to help my clients to embrace their sense of call to their vocation, while also learning to balance other parts of their lives with outlets for joy and creativity in order to combat stress, depression and anxiety.

“If I can help people lessen the amount of pain in their lives and rid themselves of suffering then that’s what I want to do.” said young adult, Lisa Levin. Nearly 2-and-a-half decades later: Lisa specializes in treating all traumas (also to include racism/discrimination, spiritual/religious), all addictions (including love, sex, pornography, etc.), veteran issues, self-esteem, & depression/emotional dysregulation. These are only some of her passions. Lisa is not a conventional therapist. She does what WORKS (within ethical bounds) even if it’s a little out of the ordinary because she understands each client’s needs are different.She has over twenty years of experience including overseas, and she maintains her passion today. Board Certified (BCD) with a myriad of training like EMDR, PE, CBT, ACT, hypnotherapy, and she’s certified as an Addictions Specialist (CAS) as well as an Emotion Code* Practitioner (CECP). Lisa specializes in treating all trauma and addictions. Trauma can be one event or many. Did you know that trauma can be mental/emotional all by itself? You don’t have to have been hit, sexually assaulted, in a car accident, or in war to have been traumatized. Years of mistreatment and enduring microagressions for example or lack of emotional nurturance take its toll on even the toughest of us. It doesn’t matter if others see the events you’ve endured as traumatic. What matters is how YOUR heart and mind have responded to your experiences. As for addictions, addiction can but doesn’t have to be about drugs and alcohol. Love, sex, porn, gambling, shopping, eating, video games these all are very powerful forces in people’s lives that need to be treated so they can live much freer & satisfying lives. What makes Lisa different? She’s passionate about helping right the societal wrongs of the past and actively works for equality and justice for everyone regardless of skin color, orientation, religion, nationality, and background. ** She helps people of color and those in the LGBTQIA+ communities take charge of their lives in an empowered way and deal with the trauma of discrimination, racism, and microagressions. *Not many people in the psychology world have heard of the Emotion Code because it’s in the realm of energy healing. Lisa researched it, learned it and decided it worked so well it was worth her time and resources to become certified to enhance her clients’ therapy progress. According to Lisa, “I’ve seen EC improve lives of clients in one or two sessions that talk therapy and even EMDR haven’t been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time! It’s really an amazing tool, and I quinsy be the only one in the area that provides this service.” About scheduling appointments: I've stopped using BH's scheduling platform. I'd rather find out what your hours of availability are and schedule with you one on one. **Check out Lisa’s FB pages: Equality & Justice for Black Lives and There’s No Such Thing As Sidelines

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Huntertown 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 Huntertown 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:

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

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

Huntertown 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 Huntertown therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Huntertown 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.

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

Before seeing your Huntertown 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 Huntertown.

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 Huntertown 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 Huntertown 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 Huntertown, 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.

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.
