Hello. My name is Jayne Praxis. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Kentucky. I am a non-binary transwoman and my pronouns are she/they. I've been practicing for 13 years. I've worked with clients across the life span and from varied backgrounds. I see the therapeutic process as spiritual in nature for the simple fact that it's about figuring out who you wish to be and setting goals to transform yourself into that person. I believe providing a safe space for clients and cultivating a caring relationship build on acceptance is crucial to the therapeutic process. My role is one of alliance, not authority, to provide tools, support and resources during this particular phase of your life journey. My approach is somewhat eclectic so as to best fit the needs of the individual. However my foundation is Mindfulness, as this supports a number of interventions, such as Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Somatic Practices. My undergraduate work was in Mythopoetics: Understanding the Self through Cultural Expression, which provides a context for exploring spiritual, religious, cultural, and personal narratives within the clinical setting. My areas of expertise are gender and sexuality, particularly LGBTQ issues, and trauma. I’m also familiar with a range of spiritual practices, especially Pagan and esoteric practices, and see my role as affirming and supporting client’s spiritual practice to the best of ability. I’m also versed in the polyamory and kink communities and believe that the individuals sexuality are a valid and important part of mental health. My goal is provide a safe space for clients to explore these aspects of themselves should they wish to do so.

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. Therefore, the BetterHelp calendar is NOT an accurate portrayal of my availability. Please reach out to me to schedule appointments, so that I can better prevent double booking. Thanks and I look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park, 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 Lakeside Park 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 can also try a Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park 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 Lakeside Park, 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.

Lakeside Park 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.
