Founded in 1885, the first settlement in Corbin, Kentucky was known as Lynn Camp Station and the post office was called Cummins after the founder, Nelson Cummins. However, because those two names were already in use at other Kentucky cities, the postmaster chose Corbin after Reverend James Corbin Floyd, who was a local minister.

The City of Corbin and surrounding areas have some of the best counselors and therapists who are available to help you with any kind of mental health issues you may have. Whether it is counseling, therapy, or just some advice, contact one of the Corbin area professionals today for an appointment.

17 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I earned a Master of Education in Mental Health Counseling and Human Development from Lindsey Wilson School of Professional Counseling in 2008. My experience has been in a range of settings, but primarily in working with individuals and families to explore anxiety, depression, or other underlying concerns that create problems in day-to-day life. I have experience and training working with anxiety and depression, grief/bereavement, perinatal mental health, trauma, parenting, and more. Throughout my schooling and career, I have had many professional influences, through professors, supervisors, colleagues, and various theorists. Theoretically, I find myself often focusing on a cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy. Ultimately, I view the theories and techniques I use through a scriptural and spiritual framework, always striving to better understand God's remarkable creations. I believe that the counseling process revolves around improving relationships with others as well as the self. Life is a learning process. My basic approach is generally to help my subscribers develop and master healthy coping skills (building confidence in their ability to do so), and then work together to dig a bit further to identify and resolve underlying conflicts that lead to common symptoms (such as anger, anxiety, and depression). It's a process with different pieces, and when they all start fitting together, very good things can happen. Counseling is work - it requires effort on both the part of the therapist and the part of the subscriber... but the end result can be life changing! I'm excited to help guide you through the steps to finding peace and personal growth. Keri Kitchen, M.Ed., L.P.C.C., N.C.C.

Hello there. I am a licensed clinical social worker. My professional and life experience is in Kentucky where I was born and raised. I have been providing therapy and supportive counseling to people for nearly forty years. I started with children, adolescents, and their families. Most recently I had the privilege of working with our Veterans. In most cases we addressed depression and suicidality. But it is best when we can start before that stage. It is best to ask for some help when you first notice something is just not right. Something is off. It is my pleasure to work with people as they work to get things back on track. My style is open, encouraging, interactive and hopeful. While I am laid back, I am also respectfully straight forward and expect you to be also. We must communicate and cooperate to make changes. I appreciate the ability to provide services online, however I do not accept clients who want to text only. I personally need to see you or at the least hear you. I do look forward to talking with you.

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

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

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

Corbin 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 Corbin 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 Corbin 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 KY, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Corbin 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 Corbin.

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 Corbin 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 Corbin 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 Corbin, 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.

Corbin 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.
