Welcome to Betterhelp and congratulations on reaching out to explore solutions to challenges you may be experiencing! My name is Trudy Buckman and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Kentucky and a US Air Force Veteran (1980-1984). I have been licensed since 2007 and worked primarily with veterans - specifically those who served in combat zones or experienced sexual assault in the military (MST), and their families. I retired amidst the pandemic but wish to continue serving those with challenges that impact daily lives toward learning new ways to cope or resolve those issues. My experience as an undergraduate included 14 years with hospice providing compassionate care to the dying and the bereaved both young and those with more maturity and nearly 2 years within a private psychiatrist's office which saw many living with concerns of ADHD, anxiety, depression and influences of personality that impact daily lives. While trained in methods of Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-focused techniques and receiving certification for Cognitive Processing Therapy, I also incorporate Art and Play Therapy when appropriate. My clinical approach is literally whatever works for any individual. This client centered and non-judgmental approach typically allows for good rapport which increases a positive therapeutic relationship and growth! As a Christian, I am comfortable with including religion into the counseling process, although equally respectful of other religious beliefs or none. I further believe humor has a place in counseling and I look forward to hearing what makes you smile. Connect with me and let's see how we might work together to improve or resolve what concerns you experience!

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

Centertown therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

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

Before seeing your Centertown 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 Centertown.

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 Centertown 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 Centertown 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 Centertown, Kentucky 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.

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.
