Hi and welcome! My name is Chami (Chay-me) Kane, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Mississippi and Tennessee. I have been working with families, individuals, and kids for the last twenty years, and I have a masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and a Specialist in Counseling Education. I have worked in a variety of settings including private practice, schools, and mental health agencies. I have been married to my husband, Jon, for twenty years, and we have two miracle daughters, one in middle school and one in elementary. We also have two fur babies, Cookie and Cocoa. I have personally struggled for five years with infertility and battled cancer twice, and I believe that our trials can sharpen us and surprise us with blessings we did not expect. I believe my battles helped me become a better counselor and empathize with and care for those who are hurting on a different level than before. My counseling style is warm and encouraging and a place where you can share hard things and still feel accepted. I use a variety of approaches including cognitive behavioral, rational emotive, and solution-focused, but it is tailored to meet your needs and help accomplish your goals for therapy. You have already done one of the hardest things, which is taking that first step and reaching out! I look forward to learning more about you and walking through this together.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Ruleville therapist?

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

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

Before seeing your Ruleville 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 Ruleville.

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 Ruleville 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 Ruleville 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 Ruleville, 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.

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.
