Hello! My name is Tiffany and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Kentucky with over six years of experience providing counseling services. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including; inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, long-term inpatient substance abuse centers, and intensive outpatient programs. I have experience working with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, co-dependency, dual diagnosis, and relationship challenges. I am native to Western Kentucky. I earned my undergraduate degree in Family & Consumer Sciences from the University of Kentucky and my Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Western Kentucky University. My approach to therapy is client-centered. I believe clients are the experts on their own lives making therapy more meaningful and successful when they decide the direction they would like to go and goals they would like to accomplish. Working through a solution-focused lens clients are helped to identifying meaningful goals and develop treatment plans. Through the use of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) clients are encouraged to challenge negative thoughts in order to improve their emotions and develop positive coping skills. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Hi!! My name is Tina Jones-Wallace and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor - Supervisor (LPCC-S) in the state of Kentucky. I have been practicing all together for 14 years. I started out as a School-Based Counselor working within a public school system seeing all ages from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Then I moved into the outpatient setting seeing anyone who walked through the door. I believe the best way to learn is to be hands on, ask questions when you don't understand, and be very aware of the resources that are at your disposal. During my outpatient years, my youngest client was 3 years old and my oldest was 61. I am well versed in addictions, anxiety, depression, parenting, and working with a lot of severely ill adults. I am a person that loves to help others and to support anyone on their journey to accomplish whatever goals they set forward. I have spent the last 6 years years working in crisis and dealing with people who are suicidal or overwhelmed. If you are ready to start your journey as the captain to your ship, I am more than ready to be your first-mate!!!

Hello. My name is Rebecca Morse and I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have a Masters of Education in Counseling. I have been practicing counseling for 11 years. I enjoy working with people of all ages especially teens and young adults. I believe therapy should be a collaborative process. Therapeutic approaches I use are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I would say that my counseling strengths are that I'm empathetic, caring, and genuine. I've been told that I'm a good listener and help others feel safe and heard. I'm dedicated and determined to help others. I'm non-judgmental and practice unconditional positive regard. With that being said, I'm also able to give perspective and set boundaries. I truly believe that if it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you. If you would like to be challenged in a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment, then I'm the therapist for you. Thank you for your time and I hope that I get a chance to help you navigate & work through your concerns.

I am Coral Haynes, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, licensed in Kentucky, with 29 years of professional experience in the mental health and wellness field. This means over the years, I have gained a wide variety of experience - but I do not claim to be an expert in everything! I have a special interest in empowering women. (Just to clarify - this is not an anti-male approach!) It has been my experience that women are often so focused on relationships, that they neglect their own desires and needs. So my focus is helping women figure out who they are, what they want, and how they can continue to nurture their relationships, while also building a life that is genuine and personally satisfying. I also have significant experience working with men, who often seek help to improve relationship skills, deal with career issues or changes, or to learn to better deal with - and communicate about - their emotions. (All kinds of) Relationships are complicated - and messy! This is another area that I have experience in - with a focus on communication skills, seeing things from each other's perspectives, and finding ways to love each other better. In addition, I really enjoy helping people with: Personal growth and wellness Executive and Professional coaching Motivation Self esteem /Confidence Coping with life changes Boundaries Divorce Recovery Parenting Strategies Stress and Anxiety Depression I also have experience with a variety of other clinical diagnoses and populations that I don't currently serve, but which helps round out my overall understanding of people and of the field of mental health. My counseling techniques are tailored to each individual client and their particular issue(s), as well as their personality and communication style. My goal is to meet each client where they are and help them gain the life tools they need to move forward in a positive and lasting way. Some therapeutic models I often utilize are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Reality Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. For more information on these models, please just ask. I am happy to provide additional information. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I look forward to partnering with you! *Please note that I currently only have weekday, daytime availability. If you need evening or weekend time slots, you may want to try a different therapist that can better accommodate you. **Also, please note that since I also have in-person appointments for my private practice that can not be blocked out on my BetterHelp Calendar, I am unable to show many open time slots without fear of double booking.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Henderson helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Henderson therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Henderson 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 Henderson 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 KY, 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. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 42420 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Henderson 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 Henderson 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 Henderson, 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.

Henderson 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.
