Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my profile. My name is Faith and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Indiana. I have been in the social services field for over 10 years. I have much experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, stress management, anger management, and relationship stressors. Anyone who knows me would describe me as highly empathic, compassionate, caring and committed to making a difference in the lives of others. I have experience in both roles of therapy, as therapist and client. I understand the difficulty in seeking help, being vulnerable and facing personal struggles. I value and respect the lives of each of my clients and admire the strength and resiliency that I am privileged to see in my work every day. In our work together, I will help you connect to these strengths within you and work collaboratively to help overcome the struggles that you face. I believe that each of us has a greater purpose in this life and counseling is one of many tools to help achieve our highest potential. My counseling approach is eclectic, meaning that I draw from a combination of counseling theory and techniques. Each of us is unique in our thoughts, feelings and worldview; therefore, I believe therapy should not be a one-size-fits-all approach. I am continuously researching treatments and perspectives from professionals in the counseling field, and utilize strategies from a holistic perspective, integrating mind, body and spirit for optimum health. If you feel ready to take the next step to a more fulfilling life, I would love to accompany you along that journey!

31 years of experience as a therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker with the state of Indiana and am also a certified life coach. I have almost 30 years of clinical experience working with all ages and their families in a wide variety of areas within the mental health field. This includes depression, anxiety, stress management, communication skills, abuse recovery, grief and many others. Practice locations have included both inpatient and outpatient settings as well as a private practice. In my work with clients, it is my intention to help you find that balance between needing insight into past experiences and current thinking and behavior patterns that influence those experiences, while also empowering you to move beyond them into a sense of healing and purpose. I also emphasize a continuous connection between mind, body and spirit. Each of these aspects of ourselves influences the other and learning how to nurture each of those parts of ourselves can go a long way toward helping someone feel whole again. As we work together, it is very important to me that a client experiences a sense of safety and acceptance for who they are and where they are in their lives. I am especially dedicated to embracing diversity and inclusion. These concerns are not solely from clinical experience but also from personal experience as a woman with a lifelong disability and extensive experience with adapting to life changes as necessary in order to have a fulfilling life. It is very important to me to come to you from a place of authenticity. I incorporate many therapeutic approaches depending on individual needs. I look forward to working with you and am honored by your trust.

I am certified in Motivational Interviewing, CBT, ACT, Mindfulness and REBT and tend to use a mixture of these modalities tailored to each individual person based on need. I am also a certified Suicide Prevention trainer and very comfortable with discussing suicidal ideation along with assessing risk level to refer to different level of treatment if warranted. My personal goal is to provide tools to allow people to help themselves in reducing suffering in order to enjoy a more peaceful quality of life based in resiliency to overcome the stressors life throws at us.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Huntington 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 Huntington 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 Huntington 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).

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

Therapists in Huntington, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Huntington 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.

You can also try a Huntington 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 Huntington 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.

Huntington 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 Huntington 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 Huntington 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 Huntington 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 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 Huntington.

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 from a therapist. A Huntington 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 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 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 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 Huntington, 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.

Huntington 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.
