Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana with seven years of post-graduate experience. I received both my Bachelors and Masters degrees from Indiana University and have more extensive training in motivational interviewing, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy as well as being a certified yoga instructor. My work-experience thus far has brought me to be most experienced in working with individuals who struggle with interpersonal traumas, abuse histories, PTSD, depression, anxiety and personality related disorders. Additionally, I am currently pursuing a PhD in social work with my research interest being complex-interpersonal trauma and the use of yoga in therapy settings. I believe my laid-back and compassionate personality reflect in my treatment approaches. I believe building a strong client-therapist relationship is essential in providing good therapy and take the time to develop this relationship. I commonly use interventions guided by cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and mindfulness/grounding techniques. Treatment should fit each persons individual needs and I will work with you to develop goals and work to achieve them! Seeking therapy can be a vulnerable thing and I respect that in all seeking services. I look forward to helping bring positive outcomes from therapy into your life!

“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

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 Larwill 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 Larwill area can be found below:

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

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

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 Larwill 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 Larwill 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 46764 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 Larwill 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 Larwill 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 Larwill, 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.

Larwill 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.
