Hello! If you are reading this, you have found Better Help and probably have a ton of questions about therapy and this whole process. Is online counseling right for you? Am I the right counselor to talk too? I can totally relate to that moment when you start the search for a therapist and make the decision to seek help for yourself. Therapy is scary, at least it was for me when I started. I remember the moment when I sat down on the couch across from a stranger with their clipboard and pen and I was expected to bare my soul. Funny, I was supposed to tell this person all my problems and through words they were magically going to help me… Well it worked! Though therapy is a little more than just talking and Better Help is online therapy, I still believe in the therapy process and my ability to help you during this dark time. My name is Christina and I have been a client before. Today I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for almost seven years. Throughout those seven years I have learned and come to believe that therapy can help! I graduated from The University of Southern Indiana with my Bachelors in Social Work in 2012 and my Masters in Social Work in 2013. I started working for a local mental health agency, providing therapy services to adults, children, adolescents, families, and couples. After six and half years I made the choice to step away from the big mental health agency concept and start a private practice so that I can truly connect and help my clients on a more personal level. I provide my clients with understanding, knowledge, and my own raw emotion in attempts to connect with them, understand their unique situation, and join together in a journey that will lead my clients to overall better health. While I am new to providing online therapy, I am very experience in making a connection with my clients, meeting them where they are in life, and helping them navigate through dark times. My passion is working with individuals, families, and couples in identifying areas in their life that are in need of a change. This change can be through physical health, by learning better eating habits, developing weight loss goals, improving how they treat their body, and/or improving their sleep and physical activity. Many of my clients I work with are working towards more positive thought processes, acceptance of the things they can’t change, healing from past relationships, and healing from past grief, shame, and guilt that has kept their minds and bodies in a state of depression, anxiety, trauma, and anger. I deliver and match the energy and motivation my client brings to me because I truly understand what it is like to experience pain, depression, anxiety, and need to change. I will work with you to reach your full potential and achieve your therapy goals. With a little hard work, determination, and wiliness to achieve change you will leave therapy being thankful for that moment when you decided to go to Better Help.com, find a therapist, and sign on to your first therapy session with a stranger who didn’t actually expect you to bare your soul. Honestly, I just expect you to be broken and honest, just like me!

As we go through life we face challenges, from these challenges we may experience pain and suffering. As this pain becomes stored within us it creates burdens that may sometimes be too heavy to bear. As I work with clients, to explore and resolve pain and trauma, I work to help them explore what is at the root. We learn to navigate the pain and trauma with self-compassion, and foster skills that help us engage in healthier ways with ourselves and others. Through self-reflection, processing emotions, and learning to respond rather than react the burden of pain is often reduced. I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in Utah & Indiana, with over 7 years of experience in providing mental health and behavioral interventions, in a variety of populations including children, families, and women. I have worked with clients with a wide range of experiences and mental health concerns some of which include depression, anxiety, relationships issues, parenting issues, behavior concerns, ADHD, trauma, complex PTSD, and compulsory disorders. My approach to therapy includes a client based approach through the use of validation, TF-CBT, CBT & ACT, somatic exercises, awareness, and motivational interviewing. I am a compassionate professional and my approach is mindfulness based and solution focused. I believe each client holds within them everything they need to resolve challenges, you are the expert on you and this is your journey. I provide a nonjudgmental space within which individuals and families can explore their options and approach individual issues. I am available M-Th 7am- 2pm EST. I encourage email communication regarding the therapy process, your questions, and any concerns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Wynnedale 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 Wynnedale 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wynnedale 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 Wynnedale 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 Wynnedale, 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.

Wynnedale 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.
