25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

ABOUT ME Hi, my name is Dawn Brown. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Board Certified Counselor and have been working in my field for more than 25 years. The bulk of my career was spent with people struggling to find themselves or may need a path to (re)discover their capabilities. This may be due to issues involving depression, anxiety or trauma. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families, as well with people over a wide array of ages. I find that there is such a pre-conceived notion about those who may need to reach out to a mental health care professional that I look to put clients at ease. Whether the situation involves family, depression, relationships, grief, anger, work,, etc. As a result, I believe in using a solution-focused approach, which allows us to quickly get to the root of the presenting problem. Cognitive behavioral therapy or more simply, how we think impacts how we behave, is what I most often use. As every situation and individual is unique, I also have other methods to assist in evaluating and exploring obstacles. Most recently, I worked on a military installation providing counseling to soldiers and their families. I spent many years in a brick and mortar private practice, but now welcome and look forward to the opportunity to help those who may be less comfortable in an office setting. I offer phone and video sessions only. I earned my Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Lindenwood University (St. Charles, MO), have earned a certification in Telemental Health Counseling and Supervision and have a certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. SPECIALTIES • Stress & Anxiety • Relationships • Trauma & Abuse • Depression I also have experience in Family, Grief, Intimacy-related, Sleeping difficulties, Anger, Self-esteem and more

Life gets to us sometimes. Sometimes we need help. I'll be your coach, support, and cheerleader through this tough time in your life, and can provide you with the good constructive feedback that you need. If you're motivated to make positive change in your life, I might be able to help you. I find that seeking to answer the common question of "why am I doing this?" is very helpful and freeing for people, and reminds them that they can in fact make changes to get their lives back on track. My approach is based on being direct and honest. Your time and money are valuable. I don't want to waste either of those, and wish to get you pointed in a positive direction. I'll work to help you get out of your own way, so that you can give life both barrels. My academic background is Motivational Psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Though those are my theoretical approaches, I will draw on any treatment necessary to help you achieve your goals. There is no "one size fits all approach" as people are all very different from one another. I do my best to tailor your treatment to you, whether we're dealing with depression, stress, anxiety, or coaching. I have Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Psychology, having graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in 2009 with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology. I have been in practice for over 10 years, and have worked in mental health since 2006. I've had a wide variety of work experiences, such as working in an Inpatient mental health unit(Psych Hospital), drug rehab clinics, eating disorder clinics, and clinical work at a Private Psychiatric Practice. I also draw on my various life experiences and previous work experience prior to mental health to assist my patients. If you choose to work with me, we just might be able to move forward and get the change you've been looking for. I look forward to working with you!

Many of the individuals who come to see me are searching for a therapist they can connect with, someone they feel calm and comfortable around. Often times, this individual is searching for someone to meet them where they are at and to listen to their needs, their wants, their goals. Many have struggled with experiencing adverse events, or traumas, whether from childhood, teen years, or early adulthood; and now, may be struggling with depression, anxiety, fear, low self-esteem, broken relationships, etc. My goal is to meet you where you are at. I work to help individuals overcome life challenges through use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Positive Psychotherapy to name a few. The type of therapy depends on your specific needs, goals, and wants. Life can be difficult at times, regardless of age or experience. Sometimes, all we need is someone to talk to and help sort through our experiences. Other times, we need someone to help us learn ways to overcome the stress. Whatever you are feeling, is OKAY! I want to encourage and support you, by providing a space for you to find comfort and serenity.

13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Jennifer Starks and I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri. I came to the counseling profession after seeing the need in my own life. I was always drawn to helping others but did not formally pursue counseling until becoming a mother to a child with autism spectrum disorder and other mental health-related issues. This inspired me to want to support others in similar circumstances. Since I know what it’s like to need help processing, planning, and finding a new path forward, I want to be that person for you. Overall, I believe therapy should be a safe, inviting space for a person to share, feel seen, explore, heal, and step forward. For 13 years I’ve worked as a mental health professional in numerous settings including in-home, school/university, and non-profit agencies. I’m experienced in counseling both individuals and families with a variety of needs including anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, and grief. My areas of specialization include working with families of individuals on the autism spectrum, and supporting young adults as they transition to adulthood. To provide the best possible care for my clients, I draw from several effective therapeutic approaches including Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I am also trained in exploring values and motivation to help individuals reach their goals. I view therapy as a collaboration; I’m not the expert telling you what to do. Rather using my training and, most importantly, your experience we work together to address your struggles and needs. Whatever reason brings you to this space, it would be my privilege to join you on your life’s path.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Bakersfield. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Bakersfield, 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 in the Bakersfield region and in the state of Missouri. 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 Bakersfield 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield may not take health insurance, some in the state of Missouri may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Missouri you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 MO, 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 65609 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 Bakersfield counselor?

Before seeing your Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield.

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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield 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 Bakersfield, Missouri 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.

Bakersfield 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.
