ABOUT ME Good day and many blessings to you! My first name is Lisa Robin. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the State of Kentucky (license #261241) and have been serving in the mental health field professionally for seven years (practicum, internships, job site placement and private practice establishment). Prior to this, I spent many years advocating for mental health policy reforms and service accessibility for all at local, state, national, and global levels. Wellness is my passion and supportive transformative counseling is my life purpose and soul’s calling. I am Native American from the Dakotah and Mamaceqtaw Peoples. I walk on, what is known in my cultures, the Red Road (positive way) in Wellbriety (wellness + sobriety). I believe in recovery, in each human being’s ability to create balance and harmony within themselves, and that we are all in this together (interconnected and interrelated). My honored Mohican Elder, Don Coyhis has taught me, “When one suffers, we all suffer and when one thrives, we all thrive.” I genuinely care about seeing others becoming their best self and living their most fulfilling life! EDUCATION and EXPERIENCE By the power and grace of GOD, I received my Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) degree from Murray State University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program on May 13, 2017, wherein I graduated with a 4.0/4.0 gpa and with highest honors (Summa Cum Laude). I hold a Temporary Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor license (#262066) in the State of Kentucky. Additionally, I am certified in Native American Wellbriety, which is a 12 Step recovery approach utilizing the Medicine Wheel addressing addiction and Native historical trauma. I am a certified Telehealth provider, and recently received inclusion nationally as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through clearances afforded by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). I previously worked at an inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility providing individual, group and family therapy; was a regional coordinator for the Iowa Office of Consumer Affairs Behavioral Health Division; and was a Consumer and Family Experience Team advocate for Iowa Advocates for Mental Health Recovery. TREATMENT APPROACH I appreciate that at times one may need assistance through counsel to activate internal resources. The skills and knowledge within you may seem hidden, elusive, and even unobtainable. However, they are there within you. I believe each person is the expert of their own life and with strengths to build upon. I do not view others as broken, rather capable of creating more choices through increased self-awareness. I approach counseling as a partnership with each client, meeting you exactly where you are in each given moment without judgment and creating a safe space for transformation to occur. My role as your counselor will be to provide opportunities for your exploration, enlightenment, and empowerment. I utilize present moment experiencing through an assorted array of interventions and authentic experimentation to increase solutions and decrease distress. There is nothing in life more rewarding than being a part of another’s growth as they learn to create nurturing relationships with self and others, positive experiences outside of themselves, and begin living a thriving way of life full of abundance, joy, and beauty. HOW I CAN HELP I will offer you a safe, non-judgmental, authentic atmosphere (CHRIST-led for those seeking Christian guidance); take the time to really listen to, get to know, and validate you and your life experiences; and assist you with determining your strengths, limitations, goals, objectives, and desired outcomes so that we can effectively co-create a pathway for your transformative personal journey. It is an exciting adventure and I am most appreciative that you have invited me to come along. I know it is not I who does the healing. That comes from the HEALER and YOU! I look forward to supporting you as you progress on your healing journey... Thank you!

Hi! My name is Candice and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor; holding my independent license in both Kentucky and Ohio. I have been working in the mental health field for over 7 years. I have served as both an individual and group counselor for people struggling with addictions, anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, communication troubles, family and/or relationship conflict, and much more. I have extensive knowledge in substance abuse issues, having worked with that population for nearly 5 years. I obtained my bachelor's degree in anthropology and master's degree in clinical mental health counseling, both from Northern Kentucky University. I have always been interested in learning about people through their stories and decided to become a counselor in hopes of making a positive impact in people's lives. I understand that seeking counseling can be a big (and sometimes scary) step, therefore I embrace my clients with kindness and without judgement. I enjoy assisting clients in identifying their own strength and using these to achieve the life they desire (and deserve). I do this by utilizing mostly CBT, ACT, and MBSR strategies, tailoring these to my client's needs. I am grateful for the privilege to work along side of you as you take this step in your life!

6 years of experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 6 years of experience in the mental health field. I initially began in the mental health field while completing my undergraduate degree from Western Kentucky University. Following my undergraduate degree, I further expanded my work in the mental health field and began my Masters of Social Work program while working as a Behavioral Health Specialist at a community mental health agency. In May 2019, I completed my MSW degree and began my clinical practice. I have experience with group, individual, and family therapy and have worked with adults ranging in age from 18 to 65 years of age and in all stages of life. Many clients came to me with significant difficulties in daily life functioning and through services, time, effort, and dedication most saw significant improvement in functioning in day to day life. I have experience working with individuals with a wide range of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, and grief/loss to name a few. I am well versed in several counseling techniques and have a compassionate and approachable demeanor when working with clients. I strongly believe that developing a positive therapeutic relationship is the foundation to a productive client/therapist relationship. I believe in working in partnership with clients to utilize their strengths to help them sort out their challenges and achieve their goals. I also realize how important it is to identify all aspects of an individual’s life that impact their well-being including their physical health, support systems (family, friends, etc.), work or school environment, and faith/spirituality in this process. I utilize a blend of Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, Narrative Therapy, and Psycho-Education for individuals aged 13 and up. My belief is individuals who have the motivation to improve and courage to seek growth through vulnerability and hard work can accomplish all the goals they desire.

Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor with over 10 years of experience in treating people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life. I use a strengths based approach when treating my clients, believing that we all have tools within us that we can use to help during the bumps in life and sometimes need a guide to help us use these tools. As a therapist I hope to be a partner in healing and growth. I've worked with clients who have experienced trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, LGBT issues, relationship problems, chronic illness, and grief. It is most important to me that I build solid rapport with my clients and that they feel safe and accepted. Although not everyone is willing to take the plunge, I think that everyone can benefit from counseling. I look forward to working with you!

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 Robards 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 Robards area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards, 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 42452 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 Robards 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 Robards 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 Robards, 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.

Robards 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.
