When our emotions control too much of our lives we can feel powerless and desperate, and it can be difficult to achieve our ideal life or even improve our situation. I aim to give a safe and welcoming space for individuals to grow awareness and skills to better manage emotions, take back control of their lives, and reach their goals. I work with clients who have various concerns such as feeling overwhelmed by stress, depression, anxiety, or more challenging issues they wish to address. I have immense experience working with clients having acute or chronic thoughts of suicide and self-harm behavior, creating workable safety plans. As a former police officer, I have an understanding of what first responders experience in their day-to-day lives both on the job and personally. This enhances my ability to support first responders such as Fire, EMS, Police, Dispatchers, and also the Military. I understand clients' struggles against internal and external challenges can lead to clients losing belief in their ability to cope or make positive changes in their lives. I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Criminology from the University of Missouri- St. Louis. I completed my education with a Master's in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. Through compassion, connection, and practical skills training from ACT, CBT, Solutions Focused Brief Therapy, and DBT I work with clients to create lives that fulfill their values.

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

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

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

Before seeing your Brashear 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 Brashear.

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 Brashear 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 Brashear 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 Brashear, 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.

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.
