Welcome! It takes more strength and courage to pursue change than it does to remain in an unhealthy pattern or situation. I can offer a warm, supportive, safe, confidential environment conducive to growth and change. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both Michigan and Indiana. I have many years of professional experience as well as personal experience with difficult situations, transitions, life stresses, and living in another country and culture. If you suffer from trauma, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, communication problems, chemical abuse, or grief, I can help. If you are looking for help with growth in relationships, learning more about yourself, staying present in the moment, transitioning to a new life phase, and generally flourishing in life, I am here for you. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is key in the success of therapy. I have a relational approach to psychotherapy and can tailor therapy and a treatment plan to your specific needs. Together we can look at unhelpful patterns in your life as well as work to heal the hurt life brings. I would be honored to work with you through this very personal process.

I am a clinical social worker licensed in my home state of Michigan. I earned my MSW from Indiana University School of Social Work in 2007. I am a military spouse and my family’s frequent moves have given me great opportunities to work in a variety of clinical settings with all age groups. I have worked as a therapist helping children and teens regulate big emotions and cope with traumas, led group therapy with adults in transition from hospital psychiatric care, provided assessment and care to wounded soldiers, and worked in a private practice group doing individual therapy addressing parenting issues, adjustments, grief, anxiety, and depression. I have had training in many different treatment modalities, but I typically use Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness techniques. Each person is different, so I will always work with you to develop the best course of action. My objective, as a therapist, is to create a safe space, void of judgment, where anyone can feel comfortable working on their goals to achieve the outcomes that they desire. Additionally, I have a certificate of TeleMental Health training.

I am a licensed professional counselor with a background in human services, education, and social work. I have worked with individuals struggling with the grief and loss of a loved one, domestic violence, trauma, diagnosed personality disorders, anxiety and depression, poverty and homelessness, human trafficking victims, and individuals experiencing chronic pain. Although my experiences are diverse, I have learned two overarching truths: human suffering is universal AND there is always hope. My style of treatment is person-centered and eclectic. I know that "one-size-fits-all" is never true with mental health treatment. Each client has a unique story and therapeutic goals are developed cooperatively with that in mind. You are the expert on you. I am often described as a warm and empathetic listener, but I am also willing to provide reflective feedback during "stuck" moments in treatment. If you are ready to move towards a path of healing, hope, and wholeness, contact me and we will begin this journey together.

What if your difficult emotions could be seen as an opportunity for growth instead of as a weakness? It’s true that suffering is universal, but with the right perspective you can learn to see that as a gift; a source of energy you can use to propel you towards your life’s goals and eventual contentment. Many seek to find happiness by changing their circumstances, but I hope to show you that if you find acceptance first the circumstances you want will come to you more naturally. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in my clinical practice, focusing primarily on being conscious of the thoughts that drive our behavior and accepting life’s circumstances before moving on to change them. I’ll work with you at the pace you are comfortable, whether you are looking for shorter solution-focused therapy or serving as a longer-term support. My calling is working with depression and anxiety, but I’m also proficient working with addiction, grief, existential concerns, and family therapy; particularly with families who have children with behavioral concerns.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston, 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 Hubbardston 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 can also try a Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston 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 Hubbardston, 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.

Hubbardston 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.
