10 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Licensed Profession Counselor with 7 years of experience. I graduated in 2013 from Lindenwood University with an MA in Professional Counseling. In 2018, I graduated from Maryland Global Campus with an MS in Digital Forensics and Cyber Investigations. My therapeutic orientation is a person-centered CBT approach. I approach therapy by focusing on the client’s strengths and assisting them in learning skills involving thoughts and behaviors that can be used to manage chronic and everyday concerns, even after they have completed therapy. I also have specialized training Mindfulness and use this skill set with many of my clients. I have experience working with couples, families, children, stress-related concerns, anxiety, anger, and Autism Spectrum related issues. In addition, I have experience with survivors with trauma and abuse. I have experience working with patients with online compulsive behaviors related to pornography, gaming, and social media.

Hello! Welcome to the BetterHelp community! My name is Cathy and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over nine years experience providing therapeutic services in an inpatient setting, and over twenty years experience as a Social Worker in the mental health field. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings which include inpatient psychiatric hospitalizations, outpatient mental health care, and correctional institutions. I work with people who are affected by depression, anxiety, trauma, and assist individuals who are experiencing relationship challenges. I received my undergraduate degree in Social Work from Southeast Missouri State University in 1997. I attended the University of Missouri, Columbia and graduated with a Master of Social Work degree in 2009, and subsequently obtained my Clinical License in 2011. My approach to therapy is warm, empathetic, goal oriented and client centered. I use the modalities of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. These approaches are hands-on and practical approaches to assist with a variety of problems. CBT identifies patterns in thinking that contribute to unwanted feelings and behaviors with the goal to change these thought patterns, which subsequently change negative emotions. These approaches will assist with learning better ways of coping with life's stressors. Reaching out for support can be difficult, and I applaud you for taking this step toward a path of emotional well being. I look forward to working with you!

Hello! If you are reading this then it means you are somewhere along the way to seeking therapy - welcome, it's great you are here! Making the decision to talk through personal challenges and struggles with someone takes courage and while it can be a hard step to take, it opens the door to positive and profound change. If you are looking to heal, let's talk. If you are struggling with life transitions or challenges that seem insurmountable, let's talk. If you are wanting to gain a fresh perspective or make some difficult changes, let's talk. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri and have been providing mental health support there and overseas since 2009. I have worked in a variety of settings including outreach centers for survivors of violence, a university counseling center and private practice, and have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages and various nationalities. I practice using a strengths-based approach, focusing on a person's resilience and building on the strengths they possess (we all have strengths, sometimes we are just so overwhelmed by life we are not able to see them clearly). Over the course of therapy I incorporate elements of cognitive behavioral, trauma-focused, solution focused and person-centered therapy. Therapy is not one size fits all and thus the therapeutic process is tailored to meet individual needs. It is truly a privilege to be present with someone on their path of self-discovery and change and I look forward to working with you.

Are you someone who struggles with self image concerns and wants to have a positive relationship with their body? Have you found yourself struggling with symptoms of worry, anxiety or depression? Do you want to start becoming active, both for physical and mental health, but don’t know where to start? I specialize in helping those with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, grief, poor body image, healthy eating, and anxieties surrounding self-esteem and healthy self image. Taking a step forward to improve overall mental and physical well-being can be overwhelming. Our inner worlds can feel disconnected as our bodies often influence what we do and how we feel. Certain physical activity has been shown to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns. As a provisionally licensed counselor and NASM certified personal trainer, I aim to increase quality of life by adding physical activity in session, alongside mental health counseling, to help you feel connected again. Doing this alone can be confusing and stressful, but by working together, we will realize your strength, and move to complete your picture of health.

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

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

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

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

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 Saddlebrooke 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 Saddlebrooke, 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.

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.
