25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Finding the right therapist is an important and courageous step in the process of creating a more fulfilling life. I’m a licensed psychologist in Minnesota with over 25 years experience working with individuals, couples and families. I’ve worked with clients to address a wide range of issues in both a community social service agency and in private practice. I added both adult ADHD coaching and life coaching to my practice over 20 years ago. I work primarily with clients on issues related to anxiety, adult ADHD (including building skills related to time management, organization, and prioritizing), decision-making, goal setting, communication, relationships, parenting, and life transitions. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation for this work. I take a strengths-based approach in which we will build on your strengths to work toward the personal growth you are committed to achieving. I believe that everyone has their own answers, and I will work collaboratively with you and offer you support, feedback and perspective to help you move forward. I will create a non-judgmental, safe space in which you can address difficult topics. I work from a developmental perspective, where we will look at what you are experiencing in the context of your life’s experiences. I use a variety of approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, and solution-focused therapy. Congratulations on taking this step. I look forward to working with you.

Hello, My name is Sharon Kuhlmann. Thank you for checking me out. Your comfort with a therapist is so important. For the past 20 years, my clients have shared their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and their hopes and dreams with me. They have confessed their indiscretions, explored love and relationships, worked through childhood traumas and improved their mental health. I invite you to share your needs with an senior therapist with many hours of “couch time.” I owned and operated a private practice of counseling, now I have an opportunity to offer my expertise and experience in new way with Betterhelp. I strive to understand my clients’ needs by listening attentively, sharing my insights, and responding openly. I enjoy my role as therapist and teacher, listener, coach, helper, and confidant. My medical education and experience as an RN has provided great benefits to my career as a therapist. I have a useful understanding of the body and its physiological responses in anxiety, stress, depression, pain etc. I will offer tools and strategies to cope and self calm, strengthening the mind body connection. If you work in health care, I would be honored to work with you regarding your experiences with the pandemic. Welcome to a rewarding journey!

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 Dalton 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.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Dalton 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 Dalton 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 Dalton due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Dalton 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 Dalton 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 Dalton 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 MN, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Dalton 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 Dalton.

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 Dalton 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 Dalton 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 Dalton, Minnesota 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.

Dalton 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.
