My passion is empowering individuals to achieve overall life fitness, not just mental health. I believe each of us has the power within ourselves to transform our lives by reconnecting to our bodies and our own inner wisdom to effectively manage stress, anxiety, depression, as well as, addictive patterns and behavior. By increasing self awareness, acceptance, and identifying self-defeating beliefs, individuals can overcome concerns related to emotional management, grief, self-esteem, negative self/body image, disordered eating, and relationship issues. To facilitate this transformation process, I utilize CBT, Solution-Focused, & Yoga Psychology practices (mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques, etc.), depending on the client's preferences & needs. I specialize in guiding individuals to curate their own unique self-care practice that supports mental, emotional, and physical balance and wellness. I provide a safe container for my clients to transmute their pain into their blessing and to let go of suffering. My philosophy has always been "If I'm not working myself out of a job, I'm not doing my job."

Hello. My name is Cathy Curry and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the beautiful state of Montana. I have been serving individuals, children and families for over 20 years.. I have helped clients improve and resolve a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, family relationship problems including parenting problems, career change, OCD, ADHD and abuse and trauma related conditions. My focus is on improving relationship with self and others because I believe what gets broken in relationship also gets healed in relationship. I have a very warm and compassionate style that is focused on hearing and responding to my clients needs and concerns. I believe that by treating people with respect and dignity that they will come away from the therapy process feeling stronger, more confident and with a greater sense of competency in their lives. I recognize that while the process of exploring what makes people feel overwhelmed and vulnerable can seem daunting, that the process can be filled with moments that lead to relief and a stronger and more stable outlook on life.

Hello my name is Dawn and I have been individually licensed to practice individual therapy for 6 years. During my time as a therapist I have helped individuals with depression, anxiety and trauma gain the skills and self-acceptance they need to achieve their goals. By gaining skills and acceptance of yourself; you will be able to live the life you desire. I believe that everyone is a unique individual so I approach therapy with an open mind and no judgement on your past or present experiences. This approach allows you to feel in control of your therapy and learn skills through therapy interventions like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and didactical behavioral therapy (DBT) all through a trauma informed lenses. A trauma informed lenses allows me, as your therapist, to see you as uniquely you and how your experiences have brought you to this point. My therapeutic approach can be summed up by the quote from Charles Addams “Normal is an illusion, what is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” This quote speaks to the individual experiences we all have and that we are all unique. Therapy will be successful for you if you are willing to put in the work and practice the skills we discuss outside of therapy sessions. You are seeking supports and encouragement from me to gain the life you are looking for. My job as your therapist will be to guide you through exploring yourself and gaining skills to meet your goals. Throughout my studies to become a therapist and practicing as a licensed therapist I have learned that everyone has their own individual experiences; that we are all unique in how we experience life and seek supports to benefit our lives. Depression along with other mental health symptoms may seem like common experiences today; however you individually experience these symptoms is unique and there is not a one size fits all approach. Using multiple different approaches I can support you in managing your symptoms effectively. I became a therapist because I saw the benefits individuals gained when they had someone who was non-judgmental and accepting of them. I have always been drawn to helping and supporting others. I gain fulfillment out of seeing others succeed and achieve what they want out of life. As a therapist I am able to reach others at any point in their lives to help them gain self-acceptance and encourage them to use skills to meet their goals. This passion to accept others for who they are started with my family values and how my family respects others no matter their walk of life. When I’m’ not working I am having adventures in the mountains with my family including camping, hiking and enjoying nature in its bounty. In addition I enjoy doing pottery working on crafts or trying a new recipes at home. I am excited to begin working with you soon!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Alberton 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 Alberton 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 therapists: $100-300

If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Alberton 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 Alberton 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 Alberton 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 MT, 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 59820 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 Alberton counselor?

Before seeing your Alberton 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 Alberton.

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 Alberton 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 Alberton 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 Alberton, Montana 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.

Alberton 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.
