WELCOME to the platform! I thank you for learning more about me and my professional experience in counseling. First, let me congratulate your courage in seeking help. I am very proud of you. Life can be challenging sometimes--it just is! Many emotions and states of being are completely normal in context to certain experiences —- depression, anxiety, hopelessness, frustration, confusion, and ambivalence. Still, you deserve to be happy and live your very BEST life! Let's see if we can work together and help you achieve your goals and explore your authentic self. ABOUT ME: My name is Jacqui (pronounced j-a-c-k-i-e) and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and multistate licensed. Connecting with you from the land of many indigenous tribes. (Why land acknowledgment matters; Louisiana's Indigenous People) copy/paste the links below to find out more:;!!Dq0X2DkFhyF93HkjWTBQKhk!FRYH1PwQEwcL0tTuYBDMOb55Mi86bnm7mAZH5FOXwhA201zPbIWt6Cb74nZoiZJ5wTuUW4RJdg$ EDUCATION: I graduated with a Master's in Counseling with a concentration in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling from a CACREP university. I am currently a doctoral candidate (Ph.D.) in Marriage & Family Therapy. EXPERIENCE: I have many years of counseling experience with a wide range of mental and emotional health concerns such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, career confusion/ discontentment, addiction, sexual orientation/gender issues, marital discord, family conflict, unresolved trauma, grief/loss and overall life challenges/transitions that may get in the way of us living our best lives. What this means... I approach issues, concerns, life events and the counseling process from a systems-based and strengths perspective that is attuned to "patterns of being" that may keep us stuck in our unwanted emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and experiences. I believe in focusing on one's strengths while offering validation of feelings as we work toward desired goals---and challenging with direct honesty where necessary. In addition, I am an integrative therapist using modalities such as trauma-informed care, emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused, reality therapy, Law of Attraction theory, positive psychology, and systems theory to name a few (this is not an exhaustive list). Sound okay thus far? Well, let's talk so you can get on your way to healing, feeling better in life, and leaning into your authenticity!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC) and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in Louisiana. I have worked in social services for over 25 years in various capacities--as a direct care worker in a group home for developmentally-disabled adults, as a staff worker at a homeless shelter for teens, as a licensed counselor in a crisis counseling program in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and as a Licensed Mental Health Professional (LMHP) working with children, teens, and adults who receive Medicaid. The clients I have helped have struggled with depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, Panic Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder. I see counseling as a way to help someone express feelings and thoughts in a safe environment, possibly for the first time. My approach combines Rogerian, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Motivational Enhancement. Counseling/therapy is a challenging endeavor and an adventure. I find those who stick with it come out more mature and more whole.

I am licensed in Louisiana with 19 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & coping with grief and loss. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. The type of therapy that I do is psychodynamic therapy. Psychodynamic therapy focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in the client's present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic therapy are client self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. What does a psychodynamic therapy therapist do? In general, the therapist's role is to aid the client in connecting the dots between their past experiences and their current problems, and leverage their internal resources to address these problems. I also focus on the practice of mindfulness which, when done properly and with intention, can reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kilbourne 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 Kilbourne due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Kilbourne?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Kilbourne 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.

Kilbourne therapists 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 Kilbourne 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 Kilbourne 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in LA, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 71253 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Kilbourne 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 Kilbourne.

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 Kilbourne 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 Kilbourne counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

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 Kilbourne, Louisiana 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.

Kilbourne 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 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.
