My degrees encompass Christian Counseling with a Theology minor from Fort Wayne Bible College. A Psychology /Industrial Psychology BS from University of St. Francis and a Masters Degree in Psychology also from the University of St. Francis. My theory of approach is from William Glasser's work on Reality Therapy. How is helping you to do what you do? What do you need to do about that? And, when do you want to Change? I marry that with Christian Counseling applications. Not only do I teach people how to study the Word, but how to apply it to their own lives in todays world. I work best with teens, individual issues, marriage counseling, widows, widowers, new normal life skills. Interview for a new job, nutrition suggestions, personality and behavior issues, and how to deal with difficult people. And, especially Emotional Forgiveness Skills.

22 years of experience

I have been working in the community mental health field for more than 22 years now, and most recently have been working as a clinical supervisor for staff working with those on the autism spectrum or with intellectual disabilities. I have enjoyed the recent shift in our field towards virtual therapy - more than I thought I would, to be honest. My therapeutic approach is very person-centered. I will take your lead and adapt as needed, but I find I tend towards the more cognitive- behavioral approaches. More than anything, being a therapist has taught me that everyone has a story, we are all a work in progress, and there’s no such thing as “normal.” We all need help sometimes, and I would be happy to be that help, if I am able.

Hello and welcome! My name is Dana Teeter and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana. I take a holistic approach to health and wellness, incorporating a variety of mind management techniques, as well as talk therapy, CBT, yoga, breath work, and other mind- body exercises to address mindset, negative thinking, intrusive thoughts, and coping with negative emotions. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds. I have over 10 years experience working with children and teens in the school environment as a counselor/ social worker. I have extensive experience providing services for students struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, and childhood trauma, as well as children and adolescents struggling with areas of identity, self-esteem and self-worth, interpersonal skills and emotional regulation. In addition, I have spent the last 8 years working at home with my two sons, both of who have been diagnosed with ADHD. This has given me the unique perspective of working with students with ADHD as both a social worker, and as a parent. I also have experience writing IEPs, 504 plans, behavior intervention plans, and goals for students with ADHD and have spent time working with school professionals and families to implement these plans successfully. While most of my experience in the clinical field has been with children and adolescents, I have worked with families and adults as well. I also have a personal interest in mental health and wellness, and enjoy working with clients from various backgrounds to address what is weighing them down, assess their mental health and overall wellness needs, and develop a plan to improve their own ability to self-regulate emotions and better manage their mental health and wellness needs. I have experience using CBT, mindfulness, yoga, progressive muscle relaxation, breathing techniques, and a variety of other holistic approaches to managing negative thoughts and emotions. I am also Yogafit certified and recently earned my black belt in Taekwondo, as I have found these practices to be crucial to managing my own mental health and wellness. As a certified Revelation Wellness® instructor, I understand the importance of taking care of the mind, body and spirit when addressing health and wellness, and I want to educate others about the neuroplasticity of our brains and our bodies ability to heal themselves when giving a supportive, healing environment. I enjoy studying the mind, body, spirit connection and using education as a tool to empower my clients. I love meeting new people and learning from others; I believe we all have a story to share and have found my own healing as I have shared my story with others. I hope to create a safe environment for clients to share their own stories and struggles, as well as to learn more about their own mental health and set goals for future growth. I enjoy educating and empowering my clients to become an expert on their own mental health and look forward to collaborating with clients to help them find freedom to live their best lives.

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia, 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 47371 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia 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 Salamonia, 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.

Salamonia 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.
