Hello, my name is Kimberly Brownridge and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC). I have a MA in Professional Counseling and MS in General Psychology. I LOVE working with couples fighting to strengthen their relationship/marriage. I have experience working with clients navigating the single life, in relationships, pre-marital, and marriage counseling. I am also experienced dealing with depression and trying new ways to help manage symptoms and learning new coping skills. I also counsel in other areas including women concerns, spiritual care, parenting concerns, career, and LGBTQ. My counseling style is solution-focused. The focus of our sessions will be the specific and current situation. Focusing on the coping skills already possessed by the client and teaching new coping skills. My approach is also person-centered since the client is the expert on their life. I look forward to taking the journey to peace of mind with you.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and am able to provide services to those residing in Missouri, Colorado, and Florida. I have many years of experience in helping individuals to manage and overcome their challenges and learn to create the fulfilling lives they are seeking. It is my goal to help guide you through whatever you’re facing so that you don't have to walk through it alone. In counseling, I strive to first understand what you are experiencing and provide a source of support. Once we have identified the areas that you would like to work on, we will discuss the best path to move you closer to your goals. Often, that includes a combination of drawing upon the strengths you already possess, incorporating additional knowledge and tools, and utilizing the support and guidance around you to move forward. If you are ready to start this journey, I look forward to working with you!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri. I graduated from the University of Missouri- Kansas City in 2009 with a Master's degree in Counseling and Guidance with an emphasis in Couples and Family Therapy. While earning my education, I focused on women's issues and relationship dynamics. My work experience includes: domestic violence counselor, crisis therapy, ethics leader, counselor with Child Protective Services focusing on parenting and relationship concerns with mothers, and in private practice with a focus on women's issues and trauma. I am trained in Trauma-focused therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I use a Client-Centered approach in therapy and implement Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Focused Therapy into my practice as well. My therapy style is warm and supportive. My thought process is not "what is wrong with you?" but instead I explore "what happened to you?" I believe that "what happened to you?" is the overarching question in which to begin therapy. Anyone could be in your situation. It's a matter of what would it take in someone's life that would put them in your situation. This mind set allows for a judgment free and supportive approach to empowering you to reach your goals.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Clyde 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 Clyde 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 Clyde 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Clyde, Missouri 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 Clyde 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.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Clyde 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.

You can also try a Clyde 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 Clyde 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 MO, providers may be booked out with clients.

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 Clyde 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 Clyde 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 Clyde, 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.

Clyde 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.
