10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

hello! My name is Dr. Lee Look. I am a Licensed Psychological Practitioner and have a PhD from the University of Louisville in Counseling Psychology. I am also a professional firefighter, with over 20 years of experience. I am primarily a cognitive/behavioral therapist, and am trained in assessment. I'm very comfortable using discreet messaging to communicate, as well as the chat and video formats. My goals with any therapeutic setting are: --to meet each client where he/she/ze/hir is. --to make sure each client knows that he/she/ze/hir has control over the counseling relationship; this ensures that the client feels safe, even as one becomes vulnerable. I am able to converse in sign language, if that is necessary. I work with an organization that supports individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As a firefighter, I have survived some workplace trauma (burns). This has given me unique insight to the workplace trauma experienced by others. I am experienced working with issues surrounding trauma, depression and anxiety, post-traumatic stress (especially with first responders), and coping with grief and loss. As a younger man, I spent many years as an artist. I like to cook, and I wish I could sing. I respect anyone that takes the step to participate in counseling. I'd like to help you carry your load.

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.

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

Before seeing your Stamping Ground 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 Stamping Ground.

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 Stamping Ground 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 Stamping Ground counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Stamping Ground, 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.

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.
