We all want to feel connected in this world. Unfortunately, we often look in the wrong places. We tend to use things, substances and sometimes people to escape from the pain we feel. But with a little bit of focus and insight we can begin to change the problem areas of our lives. Teaching people how to recognize what is holding them back from achieving their goals is my purpose. In my sessions, I try to focus upon the needs of each client as an individual. No two people deal with their problems in the same way. Habits, patterns, and thinking errors often cloud our judgment. Helping you recognize what you want in life and how to best achieve it is my overall goal. I want to help you be the person you've dreamed of being. Your heart's desires was given to you for a reason. Let me help you find that reason.

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Missouri with 14 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients to address issues relating to depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship issues, and career challenges. Are you feeling: Apathetic? Confused? Tired, worn out? Misunderstood by others and yourself? See life as a bunch of "puzzle pieces"? If you feel any of these emotions, then it's time to make a change. I would be honored to help you take those "puzzle pieces" and empower you to create the mosaic masterpiece you are so ready to see manifest. In my role as a therapist, I am here to help my clients develop healthy ways of thinking about and dealing with the issues you have mentioned. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your circumstance will change, but how you view your circumstances will be crucial in the therapeutic process. I believe in meeting my clients where they are, which means finding out from the client what they believe their needs are and what they would like to focus on at this time. I also believe that clients should be able “pivot”, should their needs change during the course of therapy. The reason being is life is full of ebbs and flow and ever-changing. As situations and circumstances change, so do the needs of the client. The relationship between the client and the therapist is a crucial component to having a successful therapeutic process. As you take this step towards reclaiming and recreating the life you want, you should have someone you trust to work with you in getting your needs met. I am honored and humbled to walk on this journey with you!

Currently my greatest strength is in working with couples. I ran an outpatient clinic as part of a runaway and homeless youth shelter for 18 years. I trained and supervised paid staff and graduate students providing individual, group, couples and family therapies. We worked in conjunction with local universities to conduct research which enabled us to improve our working therapy model and process. During this time I completed 29 hours toward a PH.D in marriage and family therapy. I was also offered a fellowship at one of the universities in their graduate school. I then worked 18 years for managed care as a part of a call center which included phone counseling. My other experiences were in outpatient office settings.

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.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Jameson 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 Jameson 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:

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

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

Jameson 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 Jameson 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 Jameson 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.

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

Before seeing your Jameson 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 Jameson.

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 Jameson 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 Jameson 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 Jameson, 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.

Jameson 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.
