15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! My name is Cynthia Jones, a clinician with a master level degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Winston-Salem State University (May 2012) and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from High Point University (2003). I am currently a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Clinician (LCMHC). I have devoted most of my career to the field of Human Services, beginning in 2002 as a Behavioral Modification Technician at a Level III group home for adolescent females. I have over 15 years of working experience with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Couples, and Families in individual and group settings; including experience working with Veterans and their families. My interests include working with all populations to overcome adversities and obstacles which may include:  parents and their children  individuals coping with role changes, job loss, career changes  persons coping with grief, anxiety, stress, and depression  youth adjusting to functional deficits and life challenges My belief is that therapy provides an opportunity for growth, self-discovery and insight in the context of a safe, supportive environment. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, significant reductions in feelings of distress and an overall improved well-being. Psychotherapy has been shown to have many benefits. However, it is difficult to predict what will happen in terms of therapeutic outcomes or to provide a clear estimate of time required for each client to reach his or her personal goals. One of the best indicators for success in therapy is 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. Also, my belief is that each client is unique and presents with his or her own counseling needs and concerns. Utilizing one therapeutic approach may not work best for everyone. Therefore, I will utilize integrative models involving insight oriented, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Brief Strategic Family Therapy, Solution-Focused, Person Centered and System of Care. In our work together, it is expected that you will participate in the formation and completion of counseling goals so that our sessions will be meaningful and helpful to you. I may occasionally assign homework as a means of providing you with further reinforcement of concepts discussed in sessions and to prompt further insight and self-exploration. There are many reasons why people seek counseling. 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. I believe that clients have the capacity to learn, change, and grow so that they may experience more meaningful, healthier, and happier lives. Whatever your reasons are for seeking services, I look forward to partnering with you on addressing whatever counseling needs you may have.

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

While many psychologists in Earl 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.

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

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

Earl 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 Earl 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 Earl 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.

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 Earl counselor?

Before seeing your Earl 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 Earl.

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 Earl 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 Earl 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 Earl, 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.

Earl 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.
