Hello, My name is Chase Longnaker and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Kentucky. I am an experienced clinical professional with a demonstrated history of working in the mental health care industry. Some of my skill sets include leadership, provision of therapeutic services and mental health/ behavioral assessments to individuals and families experiencing PTSD, Major Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Suicide, Self-Harm, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder related symptoms. Crisis management and safety plan development, detailed treatment plan development, and organizational/ professional documentation skills in keeping detailed, confidential client records. As a LMFT professional I have had the opportunity to counsel a diverse population of clients economically, geographically, and culturally. My primary focus has been working with children (ages 7 to 11), adolescents (ages 12-17), and young adults (ages 18+). In addition to working with these age groups I also have clinical experience working with adults, marital couples, and families. Recently I obtained my CFRC Certification through Academy Hour. This certification has prepared me to work with first responder individuals (police, fire fighters, EMT, and others), their families, and their communities in the state of Kentucky. As a mental health professional, one of my primary goals is to utilize empathetic, genuine, and evidence based counseling approaches to help provide impactful changes in individuals and families. My primary areas of clinical modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy , Solutions Focused Therapy, Bowenian Family Therapy, and Basic Level EMDR Therapy. The clinical experience that I have obtained as a therapist has taught me that people are resilient and under the right circumstances and stressors have the desire and drive to change for the better. This resiliency and drive in people is where I find true passion and inspiration to serve as a mental health professional. Having the opportunity to guide clients to breakthrough moments is what makes me passionate about my job. This same passion is what also drives me to play a part in helping individuals and families process the past, heal in the present, and move towards a positive and meaningful future. I hope that this information provides you with a little insight into who I am on both a professional and personal level. Thank you, and I look forward to the opportunity to help both you and your family on your therapeutic journey. My Educational Credentials Include: Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Kentucky Campbellsville University Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy Certified First Responder Counselor (CFRC) Training EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Level Training My Specialties Include: Anxiety Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder, Child Abuse, Christian Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Crisis Intervention, Marriage and Family Therapy, Parenting Issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Stress Management

Thank you for stopping by! If you are looking at BetterHelp, odds are that dealing with life’s challenges has been draining your resources. You are not alone, and congratulations for reaching out! People who recognize a need and seek assistance are some of the best and bravest souls I know. You have already taken the hardest step. Now you get to choose who you would like to walk with you to help you identify new resources for growth, healing, and fulfillment. Read on to learn a bit about me to help you decide if my background and approach would be a good fit for this stage of your journey. Clients tell me they feel heard and valued in our client-centered, solution-focused sessions, and that they experience me as a safe, warm, and caring person with whom to think out loud and explore possibilities. Clients appreciate my non-judgmental compassion which is the context that helps them dig deeper to discover solutions and uncover their own wisdom and courage to BE in the world in a healthier, happier way. I have been a Marriage and Family Therapist since 2000, serving individuals ages 6 to adult, couples, and families, from many different backgrounds. I bring my experience as a "Third Culture Kid", having been born in the US but having grown up in Brazil until my last 2 years of high school (my conversational Portuguese is still passable!). As an adult I have lived and worked in Japan, Hong Kong, and in various US states, including nearly 4 years as a family therapist in Kodiak, AK. In my first 7 years out of graduate school I was the Marriage and Family Therapist on a forensic custody evaluation team. I also served as a Parenting Coordinator, helping separated or divorced parents navigate co-parenting more successfully. Most of my non-forensic work has been with people dealing with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, stage of life changes, relationship roadblocks, and parenting challenges. My husband and I – 39 years and counting – have been fortunate to parent three children (now grown up) and are thrilled to be grandparents of four! I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to meet in video sessions, at least initially, as we get to know each other. But I am also available to you via phone if that is more comfortable for you. Each session is 45 minutes and I am available Tuesday - Friday. Please allow up to 48 hours for a response. In a crisis situation, please call 911 or local emergency services, or visit the nearest emergency room. If you have read this far, perhaps you see the possibility of a growth-creating connection. I would be honored to join your journey in discovering resources to refuel, energize, empower, and encourage you.

LIVE SESSIONS: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. CST **Some evening appointments are occasionally available.** ASYNCHRONISTIC MESSAGING: Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. CST I will check messages once in the morning and once in the later afternoon. I will check more frequently when time allows. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Kentucky with over 13 years of experience as a clinical counselor. I have worked with clients with various concerns over the years. I am most passionate about helping people discover and embrace their personal power to cultivate positive change and create their most meaningful life. I enjoy working with people who have a good life but recognize they may need to more fully tap into their personal power to make positive change and bring that “missing” something into reality. My approach is practical, interactive and empowering. I believe that what happens outside of a therapy session is significant to a successful outcome of therapy. That is why my approach includes practical homework for outside of therapy sessions. Real change happens in small, realistic steps-and my passion is helping you find your unique steps and supporting you while you take those steps. My intention is that anyone who works with me is inspired, motivated, and empowered to do what is needed to accomplish their most important goals. I believe everyone needs to be treated with compassion, kindness, and respect. I do not support stigmatizing or marginalizing labels. I approach each person as unique, valued, and believe everyone brings their own wisdom along with questions and goals to the therapeutic process. I have a diverse background in personal growth and self-discovery approaches, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Transactual Analysis, Therapeutic Story Telling, and Object Relations. I also have studied Eastern Based Philosophies and Energy Therapies like Reiki and Buddhism. I enjoy creative, holistic approaches to personal growth and self-discovery, including integrating all I know customized for the person’s unique needs and goals. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling, happier life and to take the first steps toward change. I am here to support and empower you if you are ready to take that step. ***PLEASE REMEMBER: BetterHelp or a specialty site is not appropriate if you are in a crisis situation or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911, or your local emergency services. You also can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk with someone right away. DO NOT WAIT FOR A REPLY FROM THE THERAPIST TO CONTACT EMERGENCY RESOURCES.***

How I help: In my 25+ years in clinical practice, I have helped people with a wide range of psychological issues. These include PTSD, anxiety & panic attacks, as well as those who struggle with bipolar disorder. Over the years, however, I have developed several areas of expertise: First, I have a special focus, in helping the NEURODIVERGENT community, and those who feel they don't fit in with typical society. This includes those diagnosed with Asperger's or Autism as well as those just wondering where they fit on the spectrum. In a related area, I see quite a few GLOBAL WORKERS, those who were raised as THIRD CULTURE Kids, and others who live long-term outside their country of birth. Living globally has so many benefits! But living (or having lived) abroad for a long time can also make it hard to know where you fit in and can lead to culture conflicts or feeling unrooted. Next, due to some twists and turns in my own journey, I have deep experience in helping those with CHRONIC ILLNESS (including functional neurological disorder), invisible illnesses, and the FOOD ALLERGY community. Being unwell, but appearing 'fine' on the outside, is hard! And finally, I have a passion for helping POLICE officers, fire fighters, military, medical professionals (especially ED staff) and first responders. There are many military in my family, so I know well the life you lead, and respect it. I hold licenses as a psychologist (Master's) and a licensed professional clinical counselor from the state of Kentucky.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Madisonville.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Madisonville or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville, 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 42431 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville 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 Madisonville, 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.

Madisonville 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.
