I am a licensed professional counselor with a PhD in psychology from Michigan, I have over 15 years of experience in outpatient therapy. I have worked with people who have a broad range of concerns including depression, anxiety, life change issues, career challenges and changes, grief counseling, educational challenges, and phobias. I have worked with people who experience obsessive-compulsive disorder, anger management issues, relationship issues, body image concerns, and self-esteem issues. I have worked with people who are having difficulty with coping, emotional strife, aging concerns, and serious health issues. I have worked with LGBTQ+ clients, transitioning teens and adults, teens, adults, the senior population and those from both affluent and economically disadvantaged families. I am eclectic with a down to earth approach, in other words, I use a variety of approaches and techniques to help based on the person’s individual needs and I am a strong believer in homework in therapy. That is, the person will have work to do outside our sessions that will assist in the individual more readily meeting their goals. The goals established will be developed in a collaborative manner between myself and the individual. The sessions will be interactive and unique to the individual and their needs. I treat everyone with respect and do not make judgments. My goal is to help and I consider myself a natural born helper and counseling as a collaborative process in an environment, that is safe and empowering where all are accepted. Counseling is a process that some individuals use temporarily and for some long term, whichever a person chooses I am here to help. Participating in counseling is a step toward self-awareness and I understand how difficult it can be to face complex issues that hinder everyday life. Let’s talk!

I am a licensed counselor with 12 years of experience in mental health, specifically family issues, mood disorders, and addiction. I specialize in self-esteem and communication because I believe we all desire learning to value ourselves and connect with others. I work under the belief that the first step, as we work together, is helping you expand your awareness and discover more about yourself. The focus in sessions is generally less about one's past and more about identifying thoughts and behaviors that are negatively affecting your day to day life. My philosophy is that behavior is learned and can be unlearned and I am here to assist you in identifying meaning and purpose in your life, finding alternative choices, making a plan to act on those choices, and supporting you through practicing such. I am looking forward to meeting you!

I have been a social worker for 23 years. The majority of my career was spent in trauma and loss, foster care and special needs adoption. I have experience with young adults who have grown up in the foster care system, both those who were adopted and those who aged out of the system. I also have extensive experience in grief and loss issues following the loss of a loved one having counseled adults and children in that area. I am currently a full-time school social worker and have experience dealing with typical siblings of non-typical siblings and the issues this brings into a family, even after adulthood. I have experience helping couples deal with fertility issues, grief and loss, and the loss of a child. I have also worked with parents following the death of an older child, or an adult child who passed away. My background is varied, as are my beliefs and practice areas. I personally, am a person of faith, however come from a politically and societal liberal base. I think many of us fit into this, although it can feel very isolating in today's climate. I have successfully worked with adults of all faith, or no faith basis at all depending on what my client was most comfortable with. I have experience working with people of faith who have gone through divorce or blended family issues. I would say I am LGBTQ friendly, but would never pass myself on as an expert, much of my experience in this area with adults has been as a trusted friend or family member. My professional experience has been with kids and young adults. My practice tends to lean toward solution focused therapy. Where are you, and where would you like to be? What changes needed to be made to get there? What will it look like when we get there so we know we arrived? I enjoy helping clients identify their needs, goals and their strengths to help reach those goals.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield, 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield 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 Litchfield, 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.

Litchfield 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.
