11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Kansas. I have been licensed and working since 2012. After nearly 6 years in rural community mental health, I transitioned into private practice. I've worked extensively with adults and adolescents managing a variety of issues: depression, anxiety, suicidal thinking, relationship problems, issues around identity, problems with sex and sexuality, work and career issues, social problems, and others. Basically, if you can identify it as an issue, I've probably treated it. My goal - as a clinician and a human - is to normalize the idea of having mental health issues, and empowerment in struggle. Or, as I generally put it, "I'm not ok. You're not ok. And that's ok." My style is warm and supportive, but I will push you when I feel you're ready to be pushed. My goal is to help you meet your goals, and I'll push you to do what you've identified you want to do. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, family systems theory, contextual therapy, and interpersonal therapy as the guiding forces of my practice, but there are bits and pieces of others as well. I will pull from whatever I can to help you achieve your goals. I have focused on and trained in trauma-informed care and have a variety of tools to draw on to help you meet your goals. Making the choice to start therapy and begin working on yourself is not an easy choice to make. Congratulations on taking this first step! I look forward to working with you.

Hello, thank you for stopping by and letting me introduce myself. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and I have been practicing since 2012. I received both my Bachelors of Science and Masters of Science in Counseling from Emporia State University in Kansas. I am trained in telehealth, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Informed Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Addictions (LMAC). I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, and couples counseling. It is important for me to have some humor in my life and when the time is right I attempt to bring this into counseling and encourage you to bring yours. Over time, I have gained experience with many diverse populations. Some populations that I have passions for are university students, couples, victims and trauma survivors, active duty military and veterans, and individuals with anger issues. My approach to working with individuals and couples is to meet them where they are and focus on their goals. I believe in empowering individuals to navigate the road blocks they experience in their lives. One thing that I have learned from providing therapy is that people can change and that I love walking with them through that process. If you are finding life is getting hard and having difficulty tackling mental health issues. Please feel free to contact me and we will work on strategies and insights that allow you to address the root causes of your difficulties and work on meeting your goals.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Mount Hope 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.

Mount Hope 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 Mount Hope 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 Mount Hope 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in KS, therapists 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 67108 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Mount Hope 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 Mount Hope.

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 Mount Hope 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 Mount Hope 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 Mount Hope, 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.

Mount Hope 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.
