I have experience working with adolescents, adults, and families.

23 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Greetings, My name is Dr. Aja King, LPCC and I am a seasoned licensed professional with over two decades of experience who currently resides in Minnesota, I am deeply committed to guiding individuals through a spectrum of challenges including addiction, relationship issues, trauma, and struggles with self-esteem. Central to my approach is creating a nurturing and non-judgmental space where clients feel empowered to express their thoughts and emotions freely. My academic journey led me to earn a doctorate from Argosy University in Counseling Psychology, with a research focus on professional identity development and workplace bullying. This research not only shed light on the impact of workplace aggression on individuals' self-esteem and professional roles but also underscored the crucial link between job satisfaction and interpersonal relationships. I firmly believe in nurturing healthy relationships as they are vital components of our existence and deserve dedicated attention to thrive. Throughout my extensive career, I have navigated various settings including geriatrics, child protective services, substance abuse, and corporate wellness, addressing diverse issues such as end-of-life decisions, career transitions, family dynamics, and mental health concerns like PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I view seeking therapy as a courageous step towards a more fulfilling life, and I am dedicated to supporting clients on this transformative journey. To augment my practice, I have invested in professional development aimed at enhancing clients' understanding of the mind-body connection. Integrating mindfulness and meditation techniques into therapy sessions has proven invaluable in promoting holistic wellness. I have also authored "Finding My Cool," a children's book available on Amazon, which introduces meditation to young readers, inspired by my own children's experiences. In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I offer complementary holistic modalities including Healing Touch Therapy, Reiki, and Music Meditation Coaching, recognizing the importance of addressing the interconnected aspects of mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. I design retreat and spa experiences tailored for families, communities, and organizations, offering a sanctuary for relaxation, rejuvenation, and renewal. These bespoke services provide a tranquil space for individuals to unwind, recharge, and reconnect with themselves and others. Whether it's a family getaway, a community event, or a corporate retreat, my offerings cater to the unique needs of each group, fostering a serene environment where guests can exhale deeply and find inner peace. Through curated experiences, I aim to inspire moments of tranquility and serenity, leaving guests feeling refreshed and revitalized. Visit my website for more details www.brave-defiance.online.

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

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 Lismore, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Lismore region and in the state of Minnesota. 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 Lismore 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.

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

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

Lismore 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 Lismore 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 Lismore 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 56155 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 Lismore counselor?

Before seeing your Lismore 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 Lismore.

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 Lismore 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 Lismore 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 Lismore, 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.

Lismore 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.
