I am best friends with my twin sister and her family. My cats, Bob and Precious, are so loved, they have their own room with a view. My undergraduate studies at Missouri Western State University included playing in the marching band as a first year music major. As part of my courses, I developed a love for other cultures and how they celebrate life through music. My second year, I took time to explore other studies and fell in love with psychology. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology. I went on to the University of Central Missouri were I completed my Master's of Science in Psychology. My first position as a Counselor was working with urban youth in the area of Substance Abuse.

In Hawaii, I developed skills in Behavior Modification working with troubled youth , their families, and school staff. At Metropolitan Community College, I helped displaced workers develop workplace skills to re-enter the work force in a new career.

Please note, the one area I am not trained in is trauma. As I am not trained in this area, my licenses prevent me from working with anyone who has had a traumatic experience, even if it is not the reason you are currently seeking therapy. Thank you for your understanding in this.

Hi! My name is Jane Perkins. I am a state-licensed counselor who always counsels with her Bible open. The goal of counseling with me will be to discover the "secrets" of scripture that are written plainly for our instruction. When answers for our situations can be lifted off the pages of God's love letter, it is energizingly freeing! The Bible is enough. I provide Online / Virtual Christian Counseling for Illinois and Missouri Residences. See my website: www. A r e Y o u R e a d y C o u n s e l i n g I’m passionate about helping people find purpose-filled lives. Many have no idea where to start looking and instead get caught up in what Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok says about creating dreams, then even begin to pursue those dreams. Pursuing and unlocking who you are is attainable! How I Approach Counseling: I am a solution-focused therapist utilizing short-term goals to help clients create a plan to succeed rather than dwell on the problem. I vow not to misuse your time in reaching these set goals. The implementation of Cognitive Behavioral techniques and Mindfulness approaches in conjunction with Biblical resources provides insight into human nature and emotions to improve relationships and personal struggles, all while encouraging a deeper relationship with God. In the Bible, God gives specific instructions on how to positively restructure patterns of cognitive distortions and encourage behavior change so that we can experience peace of mind and joy. You will play a big part in the healing process, as homework derived from scripture is given after almost every session. I work with clients who have fear and anxiety, struggle with addiction, are sad, have low self-esteem, desire to seek a new direction in their career, and are searching to find their specific purpose in life. If you choose to proceed in therapy with me, I vow not to misuse your time in reaching set goals. Treatment of mental health and other psychological concerns includes Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual health. Physical Health: Physical health plays a significant role in mental well-being. Regular exercise, proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and good physical health can positively affect mood, stress, and cognitive functioning. Emotional Health: Understanding and addressing emotions are crucial in mental health treatment. This involves developing emotional intelligence, coping skills, and communication abilities. Therapy will focus on helping you navigate and manage your emotions effectively. Spiritual Health: Spirituality is knowing there is something out there greater than ourselves. Spirituality is why connecting with God the Creator is essential to mental health and coping with life's challenges. This can include engaging in religious practices, meditative prayer, meditation on scripture, and exploring beliefs and values. Integrating these three components can complement traditional therapeutic approaches and lead to a more comprehensive and effective treatment plan for mental health concerns. It's important to note that individuals may prioritize these aspects differently based on their unique needs, cultural backgrounds, and belief systems. Hence, as a mental health professional, I often adopt a personalized approach to treatment.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Novelty, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Novelty region and in the state of Missouri. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Novelty or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

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

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

While many psychologists in Novelty 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 do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Novelty?

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

Novelty 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 Novelty 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 Novelty 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 63460 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Novelty 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 Novelty.

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 Novelty 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 Novelty 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 Novelty, 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.

Novelty 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.
