Hello there! My name is Eric and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working as a counselor since 2011 following graduating with my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I began working in the field as a therapist on an inpatient psychiatric unit leading groups and providing individual counseling for several years before transitioning to providing telephonic support and crisis interventions. Through these experiences I have worked with a wide array of individuals from all walks of life to better understand and cope with mental health concerns, specific diagnosis, and life stress. In therapy my primary style is implementing a person-centered approach to meet you where you are at in this moment, to get a sense of who you are and a basic "snapshot" of the present, discussing and getting an understanding of the current situation that you are experiencing, how it is impacting you and how this led you to seek additional supports and services, then working together to come up with a "game plan" moving forward. As we move forward I often utilize pieces and ideas from Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and as a future-oriented piece Positive Psychology. By working together to set realistic goals and start the process of building up coping skills and strategies moving forward, my hope is that we can walk side-by-side into what hopefully can be a better and healthier future for you. I look forward to hearing from you and working together in the near future!

My name is Chelsea and I am a clinical psychologist, licensed in the states of Illinois and Michigan. I completed my doctoral training in clinical psychology and have a Doctor of Psychology degree. I have worked with a variety of clients in my nine years of clinical work. My approach to therapy is a combination of Family-Systems, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Client-Centered. This means that I like to understand how your environment (family, work, neighborhood, city, country, society) affect you and your ability to solve problems. I sometimes find it helpful to examine the relationships between your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and work to change unhelpful thoughts. I also like to go my client's pace and work on the goals that are most important to you. I have been lucky to work with many different people on several different goals. My specialty is working with individuals affected by substance use, including those currently using, trying to stop, those who have been in recovery for a long period of time, and the family and friends affected by substance use. I have major experience in treating depression, anxiety, and symptoms related to stressful events and trauma. I can also help with family/relationship issues, life transitions, sleep difficulty, body-image/ self-esteem and motivation. Asking for help is not any easy thing for anyone. I am always so humbled by my clients' bravery and the strength it takes to reach out. I am so excited for the opportunity to work with you!

I have 6 years experience as a therapist. I am also a husband and a father of 3. I have a love for the outdoors and learning new things. I am also an avid fan of hard rock music.

My focus is to meet you where you are in your journey and support you as you face life's challenges. I am here to work with you to aid in greater self awareness, utilize strengths to solve problems and discover hope. The process of change can be both challenging and rewarding.

Hello! My name is Ivy and welcome to BetterHelp! Finding a therapist can be somewhat of an overwhelming experience for some and I do believe it is important that you find the right fit for you, as I have also been down this road myself and it took me some time to find the right fit too! As a therapist, I believe it is a privilege to be invited into someone's journey. I hope to provide a space for you that feels safe, supportive, and non-judgmental, where you feel heard. This will hopefully allow you to make progress during our time together. A little background on me- I am a Licensed Professional Counselor through the state of Michigan. I have been working in the field of mental health for approximately ten years with a diverse group of individuals of all ages from varying backgrounds and circumstances. I have experience working with children and families, adolescents, and adults with pervasive mental illness, such as schizophrenia. I have also worked with victims/survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. My therapeutic approach really depends on you and your identified needs. I believe attachment style and unresolved trauma can play a large role in our relationship with ourselves and others and symptoms of depression and anxiety may be a secondary result. I believe in getting to the root of the issue, as this is where I believe healing can begin. I hope that you feel safe to reach out with any questions you might have for me. And please know that it is ok if you decide that I am not the right fit for you, as I want you to work with someone who you feel comfortable sitting alongside. Just know you have taken a step in a positive direction!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Bancroft 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 Bancroft 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 Bancroft may not take health insurance, some in the state of Michigan 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 Michigan 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 Bancroft, Michigan 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 Bancroft 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 can also try a Bancroft 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.

A Bancroft 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 MI, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Bancroft 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 Bancroft 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 Bancroft, Michigan 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.

Bancroft 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.
