I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 30 years of social work experience. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Purdue University, and my Master of Social Work degree from Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis (I.U.P.U.I). I also have a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies and a Masters Certification in Christian Theology. I have worked in a number of different settings, to include inpatient and outpatient mental health centers, military family centers, and the Veterans Health Administration. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, domestic violence, sexual abuse, co-dependency issues, marital/ relationship problems, socioeconomic stressors, and other phase-of-life challenges. I utilize a Client-Centered approach with an emphasis on Cognitive-Behavioral principles. I believe a strong therapeutic alliance between client and therapist is paramount to achieving counseling goals and having a positive counseling experience. I am a Christian first and foremost, but that does not mean I will only work with clients who identify themselves as Christians. I am non-judgmental, and I will never attempt to impose or force my spiritual beliefs onto another person. I do believe, however, that one's spirituality is an important, and often overlooked, aspect of who they are as a person and the strengths they possess. I am a warm and empathic person by nature, and a good listener, with a good sense of humor (or at least I'm told!).

Hi, my name is Breo'na, my counseling style is welcoming, non-judgmental, and interactive. I firmly believe that people are experts regarding themselves and realize the importance of meeting individuals, as clients exactly where they are in life. My guiding technique is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on the rationale of an individual’s cognitive beliefs and distorted thoughts as well as the combination of Solution-Focused, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered Therapy. I have experience working with clients that struggle with self-esteem, anxiety, and relationship issues. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also a licensed in North Carolina as a clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC). I attended Wright State University located in Dayton, Ohio where I was born and raised. There I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2011) and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (2014). I strive to make a positive impact on others, while guiding them to recognize their ability to become the person they desire to be, through any given circumstance, hardship, or experience. I have found that my work as a counselor for the past 9 years has allotted me the opportunity to do just that! It should be said that there is never a dull moment in therapy with me, as I enjoy laughing, making others laugh, and creating an organic and relaxed environment for my clients.

Hello and welcome to my profile page! My name is Elissa (Lisa) Both and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have over 20 years of experience working with children, families, and individuals. Specifically, I have spent a significant portion of my career in education as a School Social Worker, where I was committed to serving the needs of students and their families.

I am passionate about helping people embrace their strengths and resources, as well as introduce people to new tools and skills to help guide them through difficult situations. Additionally, client feedback is extremely important to me, as the therapeutic process should be collaborative.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Askewville area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Askewville 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 Askewville 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 a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Askewville may not take health insurance, some in the state of North Carolina may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of North Carolina you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more.

You can also try a Askewville therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Askewville 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.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Askewville 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Askewville, 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.

Askewville 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?

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.
