Hi. I'm Michelle Carter, LICSW, MSW, SAP, with DBT and Trauma credential (CTTP) eligibility. My primary interest and concern is you, your goals and current or persistent challenge(s). I believe the therapeutic process is a collaborative one. You may know what you want and need, yet you experience obstacles. Sometimes, we aren't sure of what we truly want or need. Sometimes, we get distracted by the "should do's" or "should be's," that are actually someone else's wants or needs. Somewhere along the journey, we can pick up rocks we carry, unaware that we can set some of these down. We can become free to keep and carry those goals, values and ideas we truly want for ourselves in our lives. This then applies equally to others. I act as a guide to assist you in discovering greater self-awareness, acceptance, and strengths I will support you in a nonjudgmental exploratory journey to define and reach your goals that come from the healthy, confident you-- not from fear or symptomatology. We can explore and determine how best to decrease the symptoms or behaviors that are holding you back from more meaningful, free and joyful experiences. I look forward to working with you. toward greater health and personal freedom. Michelle

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 20+ years of experience in an outpatient clinical setting. I have worked with a wide range of individuals and problems. I really enjoy helping people find greater happiness and satisfaction in their lives. My approach tends to be informal. I have had training in many modalities, but I feel the most important part of therapy is the quality of our relationship. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect. When we are communicating, you are the most important person to me in that moment. I want to understand your problems from your perspective. I will bring my years of experience and training to our time to figure out together what will help overcome the obstacles you experience. I know seeking help and trusting a stranger with private things is hard. I respect that. I will try to earn that respect each time we connect.

Hello! I'd like to say congratulations to you on taking the first step towards asking for a listening ear, receiving advice, or whatever other outcome you're looking for by signing up for BetterHelp. I know it can be a vulnerable decision to make but I'm here and ready to help how I can. This entire process only works if I start by supporting you where you are at today. My style is casual, warm, direct, and patient. I work primarily using a person-centered focus and approach which means you always come first and we focus on where you are at currently. If you aren't ready to make life changes that feel big to you, that's ok. We can take as long as you need through working together so you feel comfortable and confident. You might not want to share too much about yourself right away and that's ok too. Part of having a person centered approach means I trust that you are the expert in what is best for you and I am simply here to help guide you towards the goals you are trying to achieve by fostering the strengths you already possess. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with my Master's in Social Work in 2014 and have been practicing in the field ever since. I have my license in clinical social work (LICSW, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker) which means I can practice in a clinical or non-clinical setting independently. My experience has been primarily working with the aging population and very often working with people who have depression and/or anxiety. I've worked with a wide variety of cultures and populations in my 6 years within the field. I love learning from the people I have the opportunity to work with and I value being a part of their support system. I am comfortable interacting with you in whatever format you prefer: live chat, video, or phone calls. The majority of my availability to provide support and consultation will be on weekday evenings. If I sound like a good fit for you, I can't wait to get to know you more! If not, that's ok because you know exactly what kind of support you need and I know you will find the right match for you.

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, my name is Dr. Miles, I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice and I'm located in Minnesota. My training is in clinical health psychology and along with helping clients with various mental health needs, in my private practice I have a specific interest in helping individuals with medical and health-related conditions, and on BetterHelp I provide a wider range of services to assist clients with life stress, changes, career stress, compassion fatigue, burnout, relationship and communication issues, self-esteem, self-compassion, and general counseling. My therapy style is a direct reflection of who I am as a person. I strongly believe that therapy needs to be tailored to each individual that visits with me. I do not feel that any one approach will solve every problem or concern, but I do use several evidence-based techniques to help each of my clients. I practice from cognitive-behavioral (CBT) framework when appropriate, but also borrow approaches from humanistic and other person-centered therapies. I pride myself in being an authentic and straight-forward person. At times my style is very transparent, which I feel can help you as a client. I ultimately see my role as a therapist is to empower you to become your own therapist, your own advocate, and your own champion - and my aim is to help you move towards solutions and problem-solving that will assist you far beyond our time in therapy. The world of app-based counseling on BetterHelp lends itself to many more convenient possibilities that are not available in traditional counseling, and while I feel both worlds have their merits, this platform allows both the client and the provider greater flexibility. Our therapy can be very brief and solution-focused, while also allow greater time and space to address our very innermost workings, our thoughts, our behaviors, our relational styles, and our coping styles. We can approach this in a way that is comfortable for you, and in a collaborative way work to identify your goals and desires within therapy. I recognize that for many seeking help on this platform, it is likely your first time seeking help through counseling. Many may feel that traditional therapy is not for them - walking into a clinic and meeting with a therapist face-to-face feels too uncomfortable, or the time-demands of therapy do not align with your current needs. I get it, and I have been there. I welcome you to reach out to me via messaging/text first, from there we can move into video sessions (if desired) or simply schedule chat sessions if that is your preference. I am more than willing to discuss what therapy might look like for you on a personal level - please don't hesitate to ask. You have taken a huge step already, I am ready to assist.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven 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. 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 56252 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 Kerkhoven counselor?

Before seeing your Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven.

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 Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven 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 Kerkhoven, 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.

Kerkhoven 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.
