25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I once fell off a roof over 2 and 1/2 stories to the cement below when I was a mere 20 years old. That near death experience opened my eyes and led me to devote my life to helping others see their innate value and the choices they have to fully experience life. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for over 25 years and love to help people with anxiety and depression issues. You sometimes cannot change your immediate situation but can change how you look at it. I believe in focusing on what is going well and building upon that. I will quickly help you move past what is upsetting you and on to a better view of your self and your life.

23 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been a therapist for 23 years and hold clinical licenses in Kansas and Texas. I use a dynamic approach to positive psychology for living your best life. In therapy, for a client to improve, it’s important that the therapist and client connect. Communication is at the core of this partnership and is integral in positively producing results and successful treatment outcomes. My practice prioritizes healthy connections with clients and I pride myself on breaking communication barriers with a diverse range of clientele. My experience and background support identifying and relating to a myriad of challenges and obstacles that many people - including myself - have faced. Throughout my career, I’ve devoted my time to learning to identify clients’ unique struggles and the strategies that work to get them back on track to achieving their goals and finding joy in their daily life. I take the time to present the techniques I use in a way that’s easily understandable and applicable in order to create change in your life. Taking the first step towards therapy is difficult and can make anyone feel vulnerable. I’m ready to take this first step in partnership with you, at a pace that feels comfortable. I’m currently seeing clients both in-office and online. Choose the setting that works best for you, and let’s start down the path of removing the roadblocks and regaining control.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Buhler 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 Buhler due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Buhler?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Buhler 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.

Buhler 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 Buhler therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Buhler counselor?

Before seeing your Buhler 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 Buhler.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Buhler 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 Buhler 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Buhler, Kansas 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.

Buhler 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
