My first mental health job was as a Mental Health Technician in an adult inpatient facility connected to a Psychiatric Center in 1972. Next, became a group foster parent (10 foster kids at a time) in Colorado and in Kansas. During the years from 1970-1978, I was a kind of a, 'professional student' studying many diverse subjects (for fun) ultimately graduating with a bachelor's degree in psychology. During my educational career, I embraced physical fitness as a personal trainer, clinical exercise specialist and 1/2 marathon runner (15 years), a fully-certified Stott Pilates Instructor and student of Quantum physics, an evolved approach to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. During these decades, I have tended to move away from a, 'pathology' approach and toward a strengths perspective approach with a focus on holistic health. Subsequently, I worked at Topeka State Hospital, Memorial Hospital adolescent unit and The Menninger Foundation as a social worker. In 1978, I began in private practice with my late husband, Dr Ed Levy, a child psychiatrist and worked as his partner for 42 years until he passed away in 2018-42 years. After Ed passed away, I continued in our practice as a solo practitioner, LSCSW. In the fall of 2018, I began to see clients through TalkSpace as well as my private practice. For 18 years, I have also owned and taught in my Pilates studio which I moved to my home 6 years ago. I continue to teach Pilates/Yoga/Meditation over Zoom and Face Time from my at home studio. Ed and I raised a combined family of 5 children. We were blessed with 11 grandchildren and now have 8 great grand children. Ed was 17 years my senior and only met one of the great grandchildren before he went to Heaven from a pneumonia that seemed to come out of nowhere. I love animals and have 2 kitty cats whom I adore. They are my companions and my joy day to day. This wonderful balance of work and play is my dream. I always want to see how I can help.

I have spent the last 25 years of my profession working in the child welfare system. The experience I have gained has been invaluable. I have had the privilege of working with clients in many different areas, and have learned a great deal about other cultures, socioeconomic status, and the challenges disenfranchised people have faced. I have also worked with countless families who are at an impasse on how to parent effectively in today’s world and be a healthy and communicative family system. This experience has allowed me to learn how to be creative in providing evidence based interventions for depression, anxiety, ADHD, other emotions that come from life stressors and past trauma. My goal is to help you achieve your goals and be as emotionally and mentally healthy as you can be….to be the best version of yourself! Together we will develop a goal of what the version looks like to you. I will be there to support you along your journey and provide honest and supportive feedback.

Are you struggling or feeling overwhelmed? I am glad you are here. I believe everyone could benefit from having an objective perspective on issues. My name is Kristyna (she/her) and my primary goal for my clients is to provide the caring support and compassionate challenge they need to cope with difficult situations. Most of my professional work has been in the medical setting, providing support to patients, caregivers, and staff. I can assist you with coping with a new medical need/diagnosis, caregiver fatigue, coping with grief and loss, motivation, self-esteem and confidence, depression, or just coping with life changes. I believe that you are the expert of your story, so I tailor my strengths-based interventions and use different types of therapy (CBT, ACT, etc) based on your needs and goals. My schedule is part-time but I have flexibility. If you do not see a time/day that works for you, just message me. I am happy to explore a time that works for us both. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and I would be so honored to be a part of your journey. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I understand you have signed a consent form with Better Help. Please review my requirements under informed consent before our first session. Please remember that BetterHelp is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away. During the first session, we will discuss your reasons for seeking treatment and basic background information about you. Policies and scheduling will also be discussed in this meeting. To the extent possible, I will offer you some first impressions of what our work will include. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions to determine whether you feel comfortable working with me. Therapy involves a noteworthy commitment of time and energy. You should be very thoughtful about the therapist you select. If you have questions or doubts about participating in therapy at the present time or specifically with me as your therapist, please talk to me about your concerns. Better help and I will be more than happy to help you set up a meeting with another mental health professional. Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks. Engaging in therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life. Therefore, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like frustration, sadness, guilt, anger, loneliness, and helplessness. On the other hand, psychotherapy may help you change your unhealthy or maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. Consequently, you may benefit by minimizing your overall distress, learning more effective problem-solving strategies, and experiencing more rewarding interpersonal relationships. In general, the law protects the privacy of all communications between a client and a therapist/psychologist/psychiatrist, and I can release information about our work to others only with your written permission. All aspects of your treatment are confidential, and I will need your written permission if you wish me to discuss your treatment with anyone else, including your insurance company. Even the fact that you are a client is protected by confidentiality. However, there are some situations in which I am legally obligated to take action to protect others from harm, even if I have to reveal some information about a client’s treatment. For example, if I believe that a child, elderly, or disabled person is being abused, I am required to file a report with the appropriate state agency. If I believe that a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another, I may be required to take protective actions. These actions may include notifying the potential victim, contacting the police, or seeking hospitalization for the client. If the client threatens to harm himself or herself, I may be obligated to seek hospitalization for him or her or to contact family members or others who can help provide protection. I will make every effort to fully discuss it with you before taking any action.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Susank 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 Susank 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 Susank may not take health insurance, some in the state of Kansas 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 Kansas 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 Susank, Kansas 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 Susank 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.

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist.

You can also try a Susank 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 Susank 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 KS, providers 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.

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 Susank 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 Susank 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 Susank, 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.

Susank 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.
