I believe that it takes courage to reach out and accept the fact that you are struggling. it does not necessarily mean that anything is wrong or wrong with you, only that you have not yet found answers with which you can live or accept. We can work together to help find solutions and coping mechanisms that can help you in your struggles.

I am licensed in Kansas and Missouri and have over 20 years of experience working with adult and pediatric populations in hospitals, outpatient medical and mental health clinics and schools. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, and those with Veteran status. I have extensive experience using teleservices. I understand that life can be challenging. We are pulled in many directions and often give so much of ourselves to other people and other activities in our lives. Sometimes we need to allow ourselves time to stop, even for just a short time, to re-center and evaluate why we might be feeling the way we are feeling. Giving ourselves the grace, attention, and opportunity to get our day-to-day lives back to a more comfortable, happy, positive place can be an essential part of the journey. Engaging in a strengths-based approach to therapy can help us uncover and utilize the abilities we have, to keep ourselves in that more positive place, most of the time. I look forward to learning about you and working together to create a plan for the improvements you desire and deserve.

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

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

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Clifton Hill 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 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 Clifton Hill.

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 from a therapist. A Clifton Hill 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 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 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 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 Clifton Hill, 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.

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.
