Help me to understand your story. Help me to help you find the balance, joy and serenity we all crave. Join me on a journey that begins with your strength and courage in taking the first steps of thoughtful exploration into revealing your best self. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with over ten years experience in the state of Michigan, while my experience helping people goes back more than 30 years. I earned a Master's degree from Western Michigan University in 2010 as a way of bringing my years of diverse experience and training to the level of professional ethics and practices that is such an important part of state licensure. My training and education are ongoing and constant. This nurtures my enthusiasm and dedication to the art of counseling and my ability to be the best counselor I can be for my clients. My approach is person centered first, as I need to determine a plan based on you and your own unique story. Whether your concerns are fleeting or more pervasive and troubling, I can help you explore what will actually work for you. I prefer to stay grounded in practical, solution focused exploration and therapy. This can allow therapy to resonate while remaining grounded in the clients own experience and needs. I've worked with people of all ages from all walks of life and each experience has taught me to be a better counselor while finding what was universal to the human experience, and I continue to learn, adapt and grow, as a therapist, from the individual and specific experience that is that one person's story. Much of what it means to be human is universal to us all, yet each and every one of us is an original. I look forward to working with you.

Most people face challenges in their life and I believe sharing those difficulties with a qualified person can be one of the best ways to overcome any obstacle. Whether the challenge is big or small, mental health therapy can help you find the answers you seek. Often, people just need to be heard and validated for their emotions or they want a sounding board off which to bounce possible decisions. Some might not want to share their thoughts and emotions with another person in their life for fear of being judged. Others may be dealing with issues related to anxiety, depression, addiction or PTSD. Whatever your reasons are for seeking therapy, I would like to walk with you on your journey to better mental and emotional health. My approach to therapy is person-centered, which means you have the power to find solutions that work best for you. You can expect me to listen and empower you to promote healing and change without judgement. Through a solution-focused lens, we will discover and use your strengths to accomplish your goals. In addition, I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) so that we can discover the relationships between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors and how these are contributing to any challenges you are facing today. My goal is to encourage you to become the best version of yourself in a judgment-free environment. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Michigan, I have loved working in both inpatient and outpatient settings over the past ten years. On a personal note, I am a small business owner and clients from my Authentic Living Counseling practice will also use this platform. I am passionate about helping people overcome mental health and addiction issues by assisting them in achieving their personal goals. I look forward to meeting you.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Hudson.

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 Hudson, 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.

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 Hudson 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.

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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). 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.

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

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

Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 MI, 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 49247 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 Hudson counselor?

Before seeing your Hudson 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 Hudson.

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 Hudson 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 Hudson 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 Hudson, 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.

Hudson 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.
