I am a MA, LPCC, and LADC. My diverse training through the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies, as well as training through the Mayo Clinic has enriched my understanding of holistic wellness. Additionally, I have experience in a wide variety of treatment environments with diverse clientele and understand that treatment is most effective when care is tailored with respect for the individual. To create this tailored therapeutic approach, I use an eclectic process which draws on cognitive, mindfulness based, narrative, and solution focused therapy. Additionally, I identify as a creative and write, record, and perform original music with a specialization in recovery music. These modalities allow for me to provide a creative, experiential, compassionate, trauma informed, and person-centered approach and therapeutic style. I specialize in addiction treatment and recovery and am able to guide you through the initial substance use assessment, all the phases of recovery, and towards ongoing wellness and maintenance. I also have a passion for mental health healing, and am skilled with relationship challenges, familial challenges, families seeking support for their loved ones, self-exploration, and trauma.

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!

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.

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

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 Nashua, 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. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Nashua or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Nashua 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 Nashua 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 Nashua may not take health insurance, some in the state of Minnesota 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 Minnesota 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 Nashua, Minnesota 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 Nashua 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 do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Nashua helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Nashua therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Nashua 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 Nashua 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 MN, providers 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 56565 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Nashua 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 Nashua 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 Nashua, 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.

Nashua 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.
