7 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Montana with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor and mental health administrator. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, serious mental illness, stress management, grief and loss, care-giving stress, dealing with a major medical diagnosis and life transitions. I have given many presentations nationally on coping with cancer as a young adult, grief and loss and caregiver burnout. My counseling approach is dynamic and interactive. I approach areas of concerns with a strengths based approach in order to help clients identify their goals and find ways within themselves to deal with difficult emotions. I feel that we all have the ability within us to become the best version of ourselves, and that sometimes we need an outside perspective to help us achieve those goals. I use primarily cognitive behavior therapy with an emphasis on developing a positive counselor - client relationship. I also will utilize mindfulness skills and other resources individualized to build up coping skills and achieve your goals. In my free time I like to camp and hike with my family in Montana and all over the Pacific Northwest. I look forward to speaking with you and determining how I can help you achieve your goals and cope with difficult emotions.

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been providing therapy in rural Montana for 30 years. I was Director of Services for a Mental Health Center for 5 years before going into private practice in 1995. Practicing in a rural area is a lot like being a country "doc", you treat "everything that walks in the door". This has given me a wide range of experience with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, self-esteem issues, childhood abuse, domestic violence, behavior problems, and life transitions. I have a wholistic, eclectic approach fitting the therapy to the client rather than fitting the client to the therapy. In addition to a private practice, I also teach college Psychology and Sociology. I love these subjects and love teaching. I bring my knowledge and experience to the therapeutic relationship. I have a special interest in nutrition and its effect on mental health. To put the research together in one place I authored the book, “Cooking to Cure, A nutritional approach to anxiety and depression”. “Cooking to Cure” focuses on balancing neurochemistry through nutrition and meal preparation. Nutrition, exercise, and positive social relationships have a profound effect on mental health and our ability to deal with stress. Difficult life transitions can be an opportunity for personal growth. Dealing with change effectively can leave you feeling stronger and more confident. I can help with problem-solving and improving overall mental and physical health through healthy lifestyle changes. I look forward to helping you develop coping skills that will help you through this transition as well as others you will experience in the future. Life can be overwhelming. Sometimes we need help finding our way. This can be by identifying and implementing options. Sometimes we just need someone to listen to us without judgment. Let's talk. Please note that my schedule changes from hour to hour and that may not be reflected in the posted schedule. Don't hesitate to contact me about available times that are not shown.

7 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a strength-based, client-centered clinician. I firmly believe that no two people, and therefore, no two problems, are alike, and deserve honor, respect, and careful attention to detail. I hold three earned degrees with a counseling focus/specialization: Bachelor of Arts (B.A.); Master of Arts (M.A.); and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). I am fully licensed in the state of Montana and have been a Nationally Certified Counselor since 2005. I have served as an outpatient therapist, a day treatment therapist, and the lead clinician of a whole team of mental healthcare workers. I have completed original dissertation research about the importance of self-care for caregivers, an area that I very often explore with each of my clients. My approach to therapy is to help my client decrease anxiety, achieve inward peace and clarity of thought, and approach issues from a calm and collected stance. I have experience working with individuals, couples, groups, and adolescents. I enjoy coming alongside individuals as they navigate life and am honored to play a part in the journey.

13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello, I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you and tell you somethings about by clinical approach and background. In 2010 I received my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from University of Phoenix located in Salt Lake City Utah and returned to Montana shortly thereafter. In my professional career I have worked with a wide range of ages from three years old to eighty-three while working in outpatient, in patient clinics as well as doing therapy in the local detention center. When working with clients I draw from a large range of person-centered modalities with the underling modality being Brief Solution Focused therapy. What draws me to this modality above all others is the alignment of core belief of the client is their own expert in their life the therapist is just a expert in the process of getting the answers the client is unable to find. Other components of Brief Solution Focused Therapy that I find congruent with my therapeutic beliefs are that the interventions are both focused on seeking positive solutions to the issues as well as building upon clients existing strengths rather than focusing on perceived failures negative aspects of clients life. This is important because all too often focusing on negative will bring more negative issues rather then building upon the strengths. It is also important to note that the therapeutic relationship is the utmost importance between a therapist and a client. Research as shown that as long as the clinician is utilizing researched based clinical modalities in their therapeutic practice, clinical outcomes are fairly similar. What is the most telling component in experiencing positive clinical outcomes from the therapeutic process is the relationship between the therapist and client. This also means that not all clinicians meet the needs of their clients and if this is the case then it is the duty of the therapist to find a more suitable clinician for the client. I look forward to working with you Jadin Van Steenvort MS. LCPC, CMHP

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been in the helping profession for nearly 30 years, and have been a licensed counselor for 20. Now, more than ever, I see how the external factors of our world, a divided society, and a pandemic are weighing on people in unprecedented ways, creating real struggles in otherwise very well-functioning adults, due to job loss, anxiety about the future, relationship stressors, and mental fatigue from the constant bad news. I believe it is critical to have non-judgmental support during these times to help people cope and find the path forward in the most "well" way possible.

I am first, a client-centered therapist. I believe therapy should be about the client and be met with unconditional positive regard. There is no place for judgment in therapy, and I am here to help you process and make your own decisions, not to tell you what to do. I’ve been in practice over eight years with a focus on substance use, trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. I can be solution-focused; however, I believe in listening to the client above anything else. I am trained in EMDR and very comfortable in using this modality via telehealth. I use Gestalt Therapy techniques, along with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques to help clients explore ongoing emotions in the here and now. I earned a Master of Science in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Capella University. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CMHC), and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). I am fluent in English and Spanish.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Red Lodge 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.

Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge 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 59068 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 Red Lodge counselor?

Before seeing your Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge.

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 Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge, 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.

Red Lodge 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.
