33 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. After almost 30 years of serving children, adults, families, and couples in a traditional Counseling practice in SW Missouri, I discovered that my client's really could get "Better Help" through this 24/7 online forum. Transitioning my entire practice to the "Better Help" platform says a lot about me as a therapist. Simply put, I am open to state of the art therapy. Whatever is "best for my clients" defines my practice. *In case you would like to read more about my considerations for making this major shift in my practice, I have included that information in a section following this introduction. Clinically, I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help my clients effectively address life challenges. I offer a highly-personalized approach tailored specifically to each of client's immediate needs and life vision. With professional expertise and life experience, I help individuals, couples, and families build on their strengths to bring peace to their lives. Rather than "just listening", I offer options for changing what is no longer working. I listen without judgement and I guide with state-of-the-art clinical accuracy. I generally offer a menu of ideas rather than absolute answers to help my clients personalize their journey. I teach therapeutic techniques to help my clients master their goals, and I believe, with all the tools and techniques available in the mental health field today, individuals can learn to cope with issues that bring them to therapy and when ready for personal growth, they can envision and create for themselves their best life from where they are at any given moment. I will add here that I enjoy my work as a Counselor now as much as when I first began my career.... mostly because I've come to realize there are real answers for real life problems and it is my distinct pleasure to help my clients find the answers that work for their lives. Personally, I believe in and encourage my clients to adopt "The Power of Positive Thinking,, which helps them to deliberately create their lives according to their life vision. I find a way to apply this principle to almost every life challenge. I am known for helping others recover, re-build, and rejuvenate their lives . Above all, I focus individuals and couples on "unconditional love and acceptance and on positive regard and mutual respect. I am especially recognized for my work in the areas of: LGBTQ+ Issues Depression and Anxiety in relationships Marriage/Relationship Resolution *Family Friendly Parenting Extended Family Issues Bereavement Healing wounds of infidelity Recovery from domestic victimization Life Transitions (physical; emotional; spiritual; career; geographical; etc)LGBTQ+ Issues Depression and Anxiety Marriage/Relationship Resolution *Family Friendly Parenting Extended Family Issues Bereavement Healing Childhood Trauma Recovery from Sexual Victimization Life Transitions I specialize in "The Power of Positive Thinking, and believe in life restructuring through "the art of deliberate creation". I teach my clients how they can apply these principles to almost every life-challenge. I am known for helping others recover, re-build, and rejuvenate their lives. Above all, I focus my clients on "Self-Love and Acceptance". From this vantage point, all of life's best becomes possible. Couples can mend the hurts that stand between them and the happiness they seek. Parents can grow deeper relationships with their children, and individuals can "Deliberately Create" the life they desire. So log-in, settle into your easy chair, and click "Work with Me". I am right here to take that first life-changing step with you. Gail *WHY I SHIFTED FROM TRADITIONAL PRACTICE TO ON-LINE: A few considerations for choosing the Better Help platform for my clients include the amenities of the 24/7 message page allows for on-going therapy between live sessions. The "journal option" makes it possible for my clients to easily do their personal work and then share it with me if they choose, or keep it private otherwise. The menu of session modes meets each client at their comfort level and availability. My clients can select for phone or live chat or video on a session by session basis. There is a library of worksheets and information available to therapists that are beneficial to my clients. Plus, my clients can print or upload their messages and worksheets and maintain their own record of their therapy experience. These are all amenities generally beyond the scope of traditional therapy, and is the reason I selected "Better Help" for my clients. Gail

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi! I'm Tamara and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for 30 years. I have had a wonderfully varied career working with people of all ages and with all types of issues. The first thing to know about me is that I believe in change. I facilitate it, I see it everyday, and I myself experience it. When we are struggling to find our way, it is often hard to remember that change is a constant - it is the one thing we can count on! The tricky thing about change is that it can be very scary - we as humans like to know what is going to happen and how we can prepare for it! Life often just doesn't give a heads up - so each of us need to have the skills within to cope, and thrive, when change arrives. Counseling with me helps discover and strengthen those skills - all within a supportive and caring therapeutic relationship! Because people are different, I have a variety of treatment options in my counseling practice that is tailored to specific needs. I have training in Client Centered Therapy, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma and Motivational Interviewing to name just a few. At the base of all these theories is the relationship between the therapist and the client. This relationship is paramount to successful outcomes - I believe clients need to feel heard, supported and validated. I love my work, I love helping people change and feel better, and most importantly, I love connecting with clients. Hope we work together soon! Tamara Areas of Expertise: Depression Stress, Anxiety Relationship issues Life transitions Psycho-Oncology I also have experience in LGBT and Queer issues, Family Systems, Trauma and Abuse, Grief, Sexual Health, Education, Higher Education Transitioning and Disability Access, Parenting, Coaching, Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care, Social Skills Acquisition and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Have you ever felt trapped? Unimportant and not knowing where you belong or feeling empty? Wondering what is my purpose in life and what steps do I need to take. My name is Shaune and I get it, working as a professional counselor and living this life is difficult. Especially during these chaotic times everyone needs someone to talk to that can encourage them and help lighten the load with a positive conversation or a smile. I’m not just any counselor, but relatable and ready to assist with solving some of life's challenges. Whatever it may be, I can help with finding solutions to ease emotional instability, depression, anxiety and ambivalence. In my seven years of experience people have enjoyed my interpersonal skills, social skills, and most importantly my transparency. I like to use a cognitive based therapy approach, seeing people as human not judging them and meeting them where they are. My specialties would be CBT. Solution Focused therapy, and behavioral therapy. I became a mental health professional because I worked with children in the juvenile system and realized that I was good at encouraging people to think. I enjoy seeing people take action, follow direction, and achieve positive outcomes. Most importantly I enjoy being a part of the transformational process seeing growth and development to more healthier lives. My therapeutic philosophy would be summed up in words as Acceptance, Understanding and Purpose. Last but not least get to know me as a human being first and a therapist second.

My name is Jessica Myers and my greatest passion in for helping people! I help by meeting each client, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships by discovering each members strength and build resilience so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe.

My educational background includes a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with emphasis on marriage and family from Webster University. I have a Bachelors in Arts. in Psychology from Columbia College. I am a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor. My resume is colored with a wide variety of jobs working with diverse populations, from bartender to full time mother to directing a clinical program with a community mental health company, that deeply influence my work with people. I have been a crisis counselor and outreach counselor as well working with families with have a member who have a developmental delay, I have experience counseling in domestic violence shelters as well. I believe connecting people with resources and support can assist in all facets of relationships and allow for each person to gain additional knowledge and support. I allow each person to process and talk about any question or feelings in a safe place where we can work together to learn what will work for each person and client. I will be there to help guide each person with their own skill set to help with any challenging behaviors that may present and we will problem solve together. I’m not a nod-and-smile, sort of therapist, I love to find solutions and I stay current in all research so I can bring tools to help each person — you’ll find that I laugh loudly, wear leggings and love to find mindful moments in my day while looking for all the positive things I can find and I practice yoga, thankfully it’s the effort not the harder poses that count! I know if I’m not real, I can’t expect you to be either. And when you feel safe to be real with me, we can work on how that carries over into the rest of your life. I do that through a variety of approaches. I’m holistic, looking at all aspects of your life: mind, body and spirit. I’m eclectic, drawing from years of my own clinical training, graduate work, and experience. I’m a learner, continuing to research and attend trainings, and “geek-out” on resources to enhance my therapy and leadership skills. My clients appreciate that I offer a ton of support and make them feel safe in therapy, yet I don’t shy away from giving direct feedback and ideas, or challenging a thought or belief that might be getting in the way of progress. I like to hear about relationships, past and present, believing that they hold many keys to your breakthroughs. I’ll provide tools and strategies as needed, and perhaps a book recommendation… or two. Another thing you need to know about me? I truly believe your life and your relationships can get better! It will take work, and some time, but it ABSOLUTELY is possible, and I’m here to help you make that happen. As an avid world traveler, I enjoy working with clients from many different cultural and religious backgrounds. I have been on multiple multicultural competency committee at all places of employment. When you develop a relationship with a caring, attuned therapist and leader you will find new ways to solve problems, heal old wounds, and change the way you live your life. My Mission: Create a Safe Space Where All People Can Grow "We have to be vigilant about creating a culture in which relationship people feel safe, seen, heard, and respected." I am dedicated to creating an open and inclusive space that welcomes and reflects diversity of all kinds.

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

Before seeing your Rock Port 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 Rock Port.

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 Rock Port 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 Rock Port 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 Rock Port, 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.

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.
