I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Mississippi with 6 years of experience working in mental and behavioral health care settings, as well as school settings from the primary to post-graduate level. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, adjustment to various life changes, parenting problems, and survivors of sexual assault/abuse. I have worked with both men and women from early childhood to middle age in both individual settings. My therapeutic approach is to first establish a connection through a warm and inviting interaction. I respect each individual's boundaries and unique capacity to share once a secure connection is made. I respect and welcome all individuals regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identification. I recognize the whole person in their environment and my practice is influenced by family systems theory. I am also trained in TF-CBT and have training in attachment based modalities. Once connected, I will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your unique needs. You've already made progress in getting to this point, as it takes strength and courage to begin the search for a therapist. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I hope to work with you to reach a more fulfilled and content life.

Hi! I am a clinical social worker licensed in Mississippi and Louisiana. If you have been feeling down, hurt, anxious, lost, confused, embarrassed, misunderstood, stuck, overwhelmed, lonely, or dysfunctional, I look forward to working with you. I offer respect, eclecticism, warmth, innovation, humor, depth, teamwork and patience. I have over 17 years experience helping others manage the high demands, frequent transitions and complexities of life. Sometimes you just can't find the energy, courage nor hope to open up even though family/friends have been asking "what's wrong". You find your sense of wellness diminishing and past efforts to cope have created more problems resulting in a heavier load. Things can get tough at times, but you don't have to live hard. Be encouraged! Life strengths often get overlooked during unplanned challenges. I provide counseling services to help others navigate difficult personal situations and determine their best selves. The process of determination is so elevating! I find joy in facilitating a compassionate motivating space for individuals to define how they feel and what they want. My enormous personal and professional experience allows me to connect and engage in meaningful work with great people as we all try to figure things out and be okay in our lives. I have successfully collaborated with a wide variation of individuals as my therapeutic approach is flexible and integrative. There is no one size fits all when addressing life issues. I strongly value individualism, privacy and integrity. Are you ready to begin the amazing journey toward more confident, healthy and complete living? Maybe I am a good fit for you. Let's find out.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Marietta 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 Marietta 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 Marietta may not take health insurance, some in the state of Mississippi may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Mississippi 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?

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.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Marietta therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Marietta 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Marietta 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Marietta, Mississippi 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.

Marietta has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
