11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Qualifications/Experience: I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from North Carolina Central University (December, 2011) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from North Carolina Central University (May, 2005). In February 2012, I obtained certification as a National Certified Counselor (#291252). In March 2014, I obtained licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor (#9304). I began counseling work during my graduate practicum in January 2011 at a community mental health agency located in Raleigh, NC. I continued my training during my internship in August, 2011 at a community mental health agency located in Durham, NC. I have ten years of post-graduate experience providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents and adults in individual, group, couples, and family settings. Areas of treatment have surrounded personal, behavioral, emotional, relationship, and family difficulties, as well as working with clients with histories of trauma. Nature of Counseling: There are many reasons people seek counseling; regardless of the reasons, I believe an enhanced sense of self understanding and acceptance is essential including understanding how past experiences have shaped the way we view ourselves, as well as how we understand and relate to others. Therapy provides the opportunity for growth, self-discovery and insight in the context of a safe, supportive environment. Each client is unique and presents with his or her own counseling needs and concerns. For this reason, there is no one approach that may work best for everyone. Overall, I have an eclectic and multicultural approach in providing psychotherapy. With this principle in mind, I utilize integrative models involving Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, and Reality therapy. I may occasionally request that you do “homework” by way of providing you with further reinforcement to concepts discussed in session or simply to prompt further insight and self exploration. Effects of Counseling: It is important to understand the risks and benefits of counseling. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, or frustration. On the other hand, psychotherapy has also been shown to have many benefits. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, significant reductions in feelings of distress, and an overall improved well-being. Given the nature of psychotherapy, it is difficult to predict exactly what will happen in terms of therapeutic outcome or to provide a clear estimate of time required in order for a client to reach his or her personal goals. One of the best indicators though for success in therapy often involves the motivation level of the client such as being open to the process of change, being consistent with attending sessions, and working on goals outside of sessions. Guided Philosophy: My belief is that clients have the capacity to learn, change, and grow so that they may experience more meaningful, healthier, and happier lives. The fact that you are seeking counseling demonstrates your commitment to your mental and emotional health as well as your inner strength in identifying when seeking support is necessary. My role is to facilitate that process and partner with you on your journey, whatever that journey may be. Whether it is healing emotional wounds, enhancing life coping skills or simply general self-improvement, I look forward to helping address whatever counseling needs you may have. Counseling Relationship: Although our sessions may be very intimate emotionally and psychologically, ours is a professional relationship rather than a social one. As such, maintaining professional boundaries is a vital component in the therapeutic relationship, and I will uphold those boundaries in order to ensure an appropriate therapeutic relationship. Use of Diagnosis: I utilize the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association, Fifth Edition (DSM-V) to make clinical diagnoses. While I do accept insurance, it is generally important for clients to understand, that if a client is using insurance, it is typically necessary for a diagnosis to be given in order for claims to be serviced. In addition to a diagnosis, insurance companies may also request treatment plans or summaries. This information, including the diagnosis would become part of the client’s permanent record. Another scenario whereby diagnoses and other clinical information may be shared (upon client’s consent) is if a client transfers to another therapist or collaboration is necessary with a client’s physician or psychiatrist, for example. Confidentiality: Discussions between you and me, and even the fact that you are in therapy with me, are confidential. In psychotherapy, very intimate and personal details of yourself and your life may be revealed and for this, I regard with the utmost care and respect. Having confidentiality and trust is essential to your therapeutic experience and therapeutic outcome. However, exceptions to confidentiality do exist. These exceptions include, but are not limited to, the following situations: 1. If I determine that you may be in danger to yourself or others. 2. If you provide information that leads me to believe that a child (under 18 years of age), elderly person, or disabled adult is or has been abused or neglected. 3. A court order has been issued to release information about you and your clinical record. 4. If you request in writing that I may release information about you. Client Rights: Some clients achieve their goals in only a few counseling sessions; others may require months or even years of therapy. As a client, you are in complete control and may end our counseling relationship at any time, though I do ask that you participate in a termination session. You also have the right to refuse or discuss modification of any of my counseling techniques or suggestions that you believe might be harmful.

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

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

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

Archdale 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 Archdale 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 Archdale 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 NC, 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 27370 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 Archdale counselor?

Before seeing your Archdale 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 Archdale.

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 Archdale 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 Archdale 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 Archdale, North Carolina 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.

Archdale 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.
