Great day! My name is Shironda Monique Bryant. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina. I have been providing counseling in some form or fashion since 2005 but have been licensed and practicing in the state of North Carolina since 2012 (I began my career in counseling in New Jersey). I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger issues, and ADHD. I have worked in array of environments from prisons to the court systems, schools, hospitals and an army base. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is existential, which in itself pulls from several other treatment modalities. I am confident that I will be able to tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I look forward to working with you in the near future and being a part of helping you create, see and meet your goals!

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) in North Carolina with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families presenting with a wide range of concerns including relationship difficulties, parenting problems, depression, anxiety, and adjustment problems. For the last 12 years before moving to North Carolina in 2019 I worked primarily with active duty or retired military members, their spouses, significant others or family members through the Department of the Navy's Fleet and Family Support program. Military families experience problems arising from frequent moves, extended family separations due to deployments or other assignments, and the anxiety and fear family members feel when the service member is in a dangerous situation or when regular communication is not possible. In addition I assisted clients who had experienced domestic violence or childhood abuse or neglect. I also have extensive experience working with parents to improve communication with their children, learn and apply more effective discipline techniques, and develop helpful behavior management practices. I am a certified clinical trauma professional and also am certified as a clinical telemental health provider. My approach to therapy is individualized and focused on the unique strengths and challenges of each client. My therapeutic style is engaging and collaborative exploring with each client the strengths he or she already has to find solutions. I draw on tools and perspectives from several approaches including Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I know that it takes courage to reach out for help. I would be honored to assist you as you address the concerns that are motivating you to seek counseling services. I believe that together we can find solutions.

12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

It is my passion to partner with therapists and other adults who find themselves depleted, exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious and frustrated with no space to creatively and couragously nurture their own wants and needs. I use a psychodynamic approach in my practice to help you make sense of the behavioral patterns that lead you away from what keeps you from feeling happy. I teach Self/Ego awareness to bring the unconscious to the conscious where action can be taken to change what is causing you harm and keeping you stuck. I align closely with and utilize the principals of ACT and IFS and believe wholeheartedly that you have all the answers within you already and it is my duty to help you discover them. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to support you as you move toward your most authentic identity where anxiety, overwhelm, and resentment cannot survive long because the space becomes filled with love, compassion, and acceptance which are truly powerful forces. I am licensed in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida. I have 22 years of professional Social Work experience; 12 of those years have been under full clinical Social Work licensure. I am trained in various evidenced based practices, however, those I primarily use, have focused my training in and believe in for relief of mental health difficulty are ACT and IFS. I have worked across populations and in diverse environments throughout my 22 year career which helps me be a seasoned, dynamic and well-rounded therapist. I believe in meeting you where you are at in your healing journey and using my unique collection of expertise to help you get to where you want to go. I look forward to partnering with you and helping you be unapologetically and wholeheartedly you. Heidi V. Bailey, LCSW

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Creswell. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Creswell, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Creswell region and in the state of North Carolina. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Creswell or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Creswell 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 Creswell 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 Creswell 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Creswell 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 Creswell 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 Creswell 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 27928 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 Creswell counselor?

Before seeing your Creswell 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 Creswell.

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 Creswell 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 Creswell 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 Creswell, 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.

Creswell 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.
