24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi! I'm Susan Benjaminsen. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in Maine. I was trained in this field at Antioch University, Los Angeles, CA. Marriage and Family Therapists treat relationships, including the relationship with ourselves! In my 24 years of practice, I have worked with people who were struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship, family problems, "burnout" at work, and what's known as "compassion fatigue" or "empathy fatigue", affecting mental health for those of us in the healthcare and helping professions. I have also helped many people affected by adverse childhood experiences, or ACEs, that developed into complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). My therapy style is down to earth, compassionate, and always transparent. I respect and honor your lived experiences that may be very different from my own. It's most important to me that you feel safe and comfortable sharing your truth. The basis of my approach is Person-Centered because this is YOUR journey. I facilitate Mindfulness Based tools customized for you to relax and heal from the effects of chronic stress, tension, and trauma. I believe that having the skills to build our capacity for stress recovery is essential for living, no matter what brings you to therapy. It's my hope that however long we may work together, you'll leave with skills that last a lifetime. Other approaches I've found effective and can incorporate into treatment may include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy with Behavior Activation, Radical Acceptance, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and approaches based on HeartMath practices, and are informed by Polyvagal Theory. Even though we haven't met yet, I can tell you with certainty, that this is your time, to open your heart to deeper self-awareness, to discover, and live in the fullness of your purpose. This is why you are here and why I'm here. I would be honored to help get you closer to where you want to be on this amazing journey.

My name is Rosario Sralla. I was born in Monterey, Mexico but have been a Texan since I was 2 years old. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the State of North Carolina, and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maine. I reside in Western North Carolina with my husband of 23 years, and our 2 giant Schnauzers - Clyde (8) and Thor (7). I have two grown step-children - Nicholas, married to Rachel; and Lindsey, married to Eddie. Together they have blessed us with 5 beautiful grandchildren - Savannah (10), and Nicholas (7), Vivian (1), Ezekiel (7), and Ezra (5). They all live in the San Antonio area in Texas. I have two sons - Ben and Jacob - who have been living with Jesus for 19 and 10 years, respectively. They were 30 and 34, respectively, when they changed addresses. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology. My education and professional background in helping individuals with a wide array of mental health issues gives me a unique and effective approach to counseling. My personal life story enhances my approach, compassion, and empathy. I work to provide my clients treatment plans that they can use in their everyday lives to help them achieve their goals. My experience includes treating adults from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of concerns. My training in Integrative, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Motivational Interview Therapy complements my humanistic philosophy of Client-Centered ideology, and my life story helps me get deep into where my clients are so I can help guide them to a better place. As a therapist, I have a lot of empathy, I am caring, and I am invested in improving my client's life circumstances. I am non-judgmental and believe that no matter how similar or different we may be, we can work together and develop a rapport. We can start right away, opening lines of communication so I can understand where you are coming from and help in anyway I can. My hope is to develop a warm, and trusting relationship in which you feel comfortable, and heard. One of my favorite things to hear as a therapist from a client is, "exactly," because I know we are on the same page, and I smile when a client says after session, " I feel much better."

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Taking the first step of signing up for therapy is courageous. I am honored to join you in this part of your journey. I am licensed in New Hampshire, Maine, and Virginia with three decades of professional work experience. I have experience helping clients cope with addictions, career challenges, exploring authentic self, and life transitions. I also specialize in working with compassion fatigue. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I work directly with my clients to establish a schedule of appointments. This means my availability is not seen on the BetterHelp calendar. Also, since migrating onto the telehealth platform, I have noticed it is a good idea for me to schedule "no screen" time in my calendar-- this has become essential for my well-being and ability to remain fully present with my clients. Therefore, it is important to know I am typically not available from Saturday afternoon to Tuesday morning. I look forward to working with you. Most kind regards, Angela

How to find a therapist for counseling in Belfast

Finding the best therapist close by in Belfast can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Belfast that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Belfast. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Belfast, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

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 in the Belfast region and in the state of Maine. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Belfast or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Belfast area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT

  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Belfast 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 Belfast 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 Belfast may not take health insurance, some in the state of Maine may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Maine you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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.

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

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

Belfast 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 Belfast 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 Belfast 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 ME, therapists 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 04915 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Belfast 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 Belfast.

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 Belfast 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 Belfast 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 Belfast, Maine 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.

Belfast 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.
