Hi There! Having lived through a number of difficult experiences I understand the challenges in continuing to share your vulnerabilities with the world. These experiences lead us to hide our pain thinking it will be easier if others cannot see them. In reality, each time we hide our pain we dismiss a part of ourselves that is aching to be seen. As a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri and Colorado, and a Women's Empowerment Life Coach, I understand the importance of guiding women towards their internal strengths, building trust, and exploring their personal authenticity. My work is centered in supporting women through the twists and turns of self-discovery. In working with me, women discover and rediscover parts of themselves that they have buried, lost, or are unknown. I focus on education, elevation, and empowerment. Through my work women are encouraged to take control, reclaim their inherent freedom, and cultivate support that lights a path to the new woman they are becoming. My eclectic approach entwines 12 years of education and experience to help you identify obstacles in your life while steering you towards your goals. I specialize in issues related to anxiety, family conflict, relationship challenges, self-esteem, communication and trauma. As a clinician, my journey has afforded me three key insights; a better understanding of the human condition, how trauma can impact our perceptions of our capabilities, and that the human spirit is resilient beyond imaginable belief. Reach out to me if you are ready to begin your unique journey to healing. **Scheduling: Currently I have availability on Mondays and Tuesdays late mornings/early afternoon. Please be aware of this before moving forward. Periodically their will be other availability. For potential clients outside of the continental US, if you do not see a preferred time, please make contact.

My name is Janet Webb, and I have been teaching and counseling people my entire adult life. My original focus was education; and I worked as a teacher in public, private, and higher education for almost 20 years. Throughout it all, I have been the “listening ear” when others talked about their concerns, so becoming a counselor was just the right path to follow. My 30+ years of counseling experience in Missouri includes work in a community agency, corrections, private practice, public speaking, and insurance. You are the expert on you, so our work together starts with you helping me understand your concerns and what you want to achieve. Using a variety of techniques including Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma Reduction, and others we will work together to help you toward your goals. Everyone is different, so we will figure out together what helps you best. We may laugh some and cry some. We will question and explore. But you will always be respected and heard. You may even tell me I have missed the point! Then we back up and try another way to the path that works for you. My specialties are stress, burn-out, life transitions, anxiety, depression, LGBT concerns including those of family members, chronic illness and pain, trauma recovery, and additions. In over 30 years of experience, I helped adolescents and adults from a variety of backgrounds and cultures along life’s journey. They have learned. I have probably learned more from them. Let’s work together to continue learning how you can reach for the amazing life you deserve.

Hello. If you are looking at therapist profiles it is likely that you are coping with something significant in your life. It is important to find a counselor you think would be a good fit for you and able to understand and help. I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri with 20 years of experience. And, I have a broad range of professional interests, experience and professional expertise. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend several years in South America working with children who have medical needs. And I became involved with indigenous peoples struggles and women’s issues while there. After returning to the US, I coordinated a bilingual domestic violence program for Spanish speaking women in collaboration with the Catholic church . Among other people I have worked with are: court-referred clients, EAP professionals and people with disabilities. I also have a strong interest in spirituality and it’s role in health and healing. I was fortunate to be able to participate as a therapist in a study measuring the benefits of religious beliefs in the treatment of trauma survivors. I was also invited to visit a Buddhist ashram in New England where I was able to learn more about meditation, nutrition and other practices. I believe that spirituality can be an integral part of a person’s healing and development and I take a holistic approach in my work. My counseling style is friendly and compassionate. I can talk with you using a combination of text, phone and video depending upon what we decide. I feel honored to be a part of your journey.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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

Therapists in Naylor, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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

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

Naylor therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

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

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 Naylor 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 Naylor, 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.

Naylor 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.
