One of my favorite mentors/authors/ counselors is quoted to say "owning our story, and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we'll ever do." Brene Brown. I firmly believe in this quote and work to apply this to my personal life. Learning to be brave and loving ourselves on the journey we are on brings freedom from the multitude of stress life throws our way. My counseling approach focuses on finding those moments of courage and vulnerability to tackle life's struggles. I find that when clients can explore their values and strengths and pursue their goals and dreams they find the most success and peace in life. My counseling approach utilizes ACT, Solution Focused, CBT and Narrative Counseling Theories. I have ten years of professional experience working as a counselor. I have extensive knowledge working with addictions, as well and depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and stress management. In addition I have strength in addressing grief and loss as well as career issues. I have a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and Master degree in Mental Health Counseling.

I offer over nine years of experience working with a diverse range of ages, cultures, and concerns, combining education with professional experience from Chicago hospitals and Montana communities. I specialize in supporting healthcare professionals; those going through divorce; and those who identify as lgbtq+. I provide a therapeutic relationship rooted in compassion, authenticity, and nonjudgement, so that you can feel safe to be vulnerable in our work toward healing, resolution, and positive change. Our relationship begins with a therapeutic alliance grounded in appreciation and respect for your unique history, needs, and goals. Our work includes finding the right balance, tempering the emotional with the practical; addressing unmet needs, unhealthy thought-patterns and perceptions; and employing mindfulness, self compassion, and coping strategies into our work. Finding the right therapist can be quite an undertaking, but if my background and approach resonate with what you are seeking, I would love to hear from you. I offer a space in which you can safely let your guard down, and a place to discover tools and perspectives for positive, sustainable change.

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

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

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

Fromberg 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 Fromberg 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 Fromberg 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 59029 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 Fromberg counselor?

Before seeing your Fromberg 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 Fromberg.

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 Fromberg 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 Fromberg 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 Fromberg, 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.

Fromberg 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.
