I am a Qualified Mental Health Practitioner with over 15 years experience . While working towards my Clinical license as a Social Worker the focus of my practice was in Geriatric Psych. I primarily worked with Seniors age 60 years and over. After getting my Clinical level license I began to work with outpatient adults in a community mental health center whose ages ranged from 5 years old to 80 plus. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is an eclectic. I employ multiple theories and techniques in order to meet the specific needs of my patients. Today my practice focuses on the treatment of Anxiety and Depression. The tag line in the advertisements for my private practice reads, "Helping you put the pieces of the puzzle together since 2019." This has been and continues to be my passion. If you're feeling confused and stalled let me help. I'm not everyone's cup of tea but I might be yours; Taste and see!

What should you know about me? My name is Kevin Waymire, I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in Kansas and Florida. I have worked with various populations over the course of my practice which includes helping people navigate trauma, depression, anxiety, identity, and relational problems. What is my approach to therapy? I enjoy a positive and solutions focused approach to therapy. What this means is that I know you already have the ability within you to navigate what you may be going through and my role is to help you unravel the complexity of life that has caused you to feel stuck. No one has to walk through the fire alone. What can you expect to take away from sessions with me? After the first session my clients often tell me how much better they feel just from being heard and validated. I believe therapy needs to be a place without bias or judgment. I also believe trust and rapport are crucial elements to your healing process. As a therapist I realize I am only in your life for a season and until those rough waves smooth out, I want you to feel supported, encouraged and empowered as you navigate the change process.

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

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

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

Overbrook 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 Overbrook 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 Overbrook counselor?

Before seeing your Overbrook 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 Overbrook.

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 Overbrook 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 Overbrook 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 Overbrook, 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.

Overbrook 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.
