Life can often be difficult, causing individuals to feel lonely and overwhelmed. Many of my clients begin therapy because they are struggling with an emotional void and they are wondering how to live their best life. My therapeutic style is warm, non-judgmental, strength based and solution focused. The strong therapeutic relationship I work to cultivate is often the catalyst for my clients to become more self aware, insightful and in control of their life. I have over 22 years experience working with adults, children and families. It has been an honor to work side by side with and guide clients through challenges that seem impossible to overcome, including depression, anxiety, grief, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, substance use and unhealthy family dynamics. It would be a privilege to help you to discover your inherent strengths so you can begin to feel better about yourself and your life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 4 years experience working as a therapist and case manager in different settings including community clinics and behavioral health hospitals. I am a proud combat Army veteran and have experience working with military service members and their families, understanding both point of views of serving: that of the service member as well as issues and stressors that occur at home while your service member is away. I've worked with with individuals, couples, and families of all kinds that have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, and more. I understand that you want a counselor that you feel understands and listens. I strive to be that with every client I work with. I believe there is a beauty in the brokenness that we all feel sometimes. by acknowledging that brokenness, we can begin to heal. My approach is to meet each person where they are regarding their readiness to make changes in their life. I treat everyone I work with, with the respect and dignity that they deserve. It can be hard to seek professional help. I provide a judgement free space for you to feel free to be who you are while you share. It takes courage to take those first steps in seeking a more fulfilling and happier life and even more to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take those steps I am here to support and empower you. SCHEDULING **Live sessions are offered on a first come basis (all times EST).

This theoretical approach allows the counselor/therapist to apply components of several major counseling and psychological theories including, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Existential, Person-Centered Therapy, Reality Therapy, and other disciplines within the field of psychology and counseling to allow for maximal results upon the specific needs of the clients. Each of these approaches is well-established, researched, and respected therapies.

I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor and licensed clinical addiction specialist based out of North Carolina. I have been in practice for approximately 10 years working with a wide array of mental health and substance use concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety, compulsions, relationship issues, and drug and alcohol abuse and/or addiction. I really thrive working with women and women's issues including trauma work and women who have survived domestic violence or any form of abuse. My therapy style is warm and approachable. I like to think that people can approach me and feel comfortable talking to me about things they may not feel comfortable talking to others about. It is not my place to judge, but maybe look at life or situations from all perspectives to find the best solutions for problems. Sometimes, there is no problem that needs to be solved - simply talking out a situation to feel better about the circumstances we have been dealt. It takes a lot of courage to seek help - you are not alone and I encourage people to put themselves first in order to live a healthy, meaningful life. I look forward to helping you achieve any goals that you may have.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Bermuda Run 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 Bermuda Run 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 Bermuda Run 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?

Therapists in Bermuda Run, North Carolina working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). 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. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Bermuda Run above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Bermuda Run 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 Bermuda Run 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 lot of people in NC, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Bermuda Run 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 Bermuda Run 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 Bermuda Run, 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.

Bermuda Run 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.
