In 1856, Tell City was founded by a group of Swiss-German immigrants who called it the Swiss Colonization Society. They purchased three miles of land to be surveyed and it was finalized in 1857. It was named after the Swiss hero William Tell and the post office there has been in operation since 1858.

The Tell City area also has some amazing health care including mental health care, which is just as important as your physical health. Luckily, there are plenty of amazing counselors and therapists who are experienced in all types of mental issues. Just reach out and talk to one of these experts today.

Hello, my name is Jennifer Moon. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW/Indiana & Illinois) with over twenty years of experience working in the Helping Professions. I developed a deep affinity for counseling others at a very young age. As a teenager, I began serving the elderly population in my community and in my early twenties I provided support to those living in Mexico, the Netherlands, and West Africa. After completion of my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work, I pursued attainment of an advanced degree in Social Work in order to operate at my optimal level to assist individuals like you with achieving needed change. I believe change is constant and inevitable and that a small change can lead to a bigger one. I can assist with the provision of a non-judgmental, warm, and accepting space in which to share your personal thoughts and feelings. I have provided a copy of my Informed Consent (a.k.a. "Membership Form") on the platform which you will be asked to review and sign upon accepting me as your therapist. Within this form, my on-boarding instructions found under REQUIRED INFORMATION will help guide you in taking the next steps. I typically integrate the Strengths perspective, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Somatic Psychotherapy into my sessions which are proven methods for achieving success in many of our individual journeys. I believe every person is unique, and we have the inherent strength and resources to help ourselves. Together we can develop, explore, create, and co-author an evolving story of possibilities and opportunities for you! So let's get started...

Hi! I'm David and I'm a licensed therapist in the states of Indiana & Tennessee. I have a broad range of experiences in mental health, with a wide variety of people served. I love helping people find hope, find their way and help them on their road to a better life; helping people discover what works for them and their own answers for what matters to them. Over the years I've worked extensively with young people and adults with depression, anxiety, anger, hopelessness, doubt, grief, fear and a host of transitional issues. I don't believe in a one size fits all therapy, so I use an eclectic comfortable style, that provides kindness, compassion, direction, hope and caring, While we work through issues we set a course with goals and objectives to help build hope today and success as we move forward. I like to provide supportive insight, developing understanding and reaching short-term goals as we work towards long-term goals. The goal is for you to experience a sense of hope and support, while helping you identify your goals and a clear sense of how to achieve them. I look forward to meeting you!

I have years of experience helping clients cope with both the symptoms as well as the underlying causes of their struggles with issues of anxiety, trauma and PTSD, depression, difficulty managing anger, alcohol or other substance use disorders, and relational difficulties that often stem from low self-confidence and the need for updated and enhanced communication skills. My clinical style combines a personal approach that aims to make the client feel genuinely understood, supported, and safe. I utilize a variety of therapeutic interventions that help to update coping skills and strategies, while operating from a psychodynamic base that can facilitate both shorter- and longer-term psychodynamic psychotherapy for deeper-reaching, more stable positive change. I am also certified to provide EMDR when appropriate. I received a Master's degree in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago in 2010. I currently reside in Louisiana.

21 years of experience

I am licensed in Indiana with 21 years of professional work experience. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families in several areas of focus, including relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy related issues, parenting issues, mood disorders, and personality disorders. Though I have significant clinical experience with adolescents and young adults, my focus has shifted over time, and I now work exclusively with couples/marriages, and individual adult clients. My practice is foundationally dependent on Christian principles and, as a result, I’ve been able to incorporate essential faith-based tools (such as grace, forgiveness, humility, self-sacrifice, etc.) to my clinical “toolbox”, alongside established, evidence based treatment modalities, including CBT, DBT, EMDR, et al. I firmly believe that the first and most important goal of therapy is the creation of a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients. The strength of that relationship is well understood to be the best predictor of successful outcomes. So, you can expect a therapeutic environment in which mutual trust is paramount, thoughts and feelings are shareable without fear of judgment, and authenticity & empathy are essential to the process. Making the decision to intentionally discuss personal issues with a stranger (regardless of the cryptic letters after their name) can be hard, and even scary. But please don’t think it suggests any kind of “weakness” - it doesn’t, Doing this takes determination and courage, as well as the simple recognition that life is hard, and none of us can do it alone.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Tell 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 Tell 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 Tell 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 Tell 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 Tell 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 can also try a Tell 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 Tell 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.

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 Tell 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 Tell 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 Tell 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.

Tell 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.
