I am a a licensed counselor in North Carolina, and have been practicing for 14 years. I have worked with adults in various higher education settings to include disability services, mental health issues and career related topics. I provide counseling specific to disability related issues such as diversity, adjustment, and legal obligations/requirements specific to ADA law. In my work with personal/mental health counseling, common topics of focus are on stress management, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, grief, domestic violence, communication, work-life balance, general life skills, and academic success skills. I have more limited experience with career counseling, but do facilitate career counseling and am qualified to provide supervision from this perspective. I am certified to administer Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and other career inventories. My primary theories of practice most commonly include Solution-Focused techniques and Cognitive Behavioral strategies. I focus on the strengths within the client, promote empowerment, assist clients in exploring the answers within themselves, and utilize a strength-based approach and assignments. In line with CBT, I often assignment home work to clients in an effort to link sessions and continue work outside of our individual or group sessions. I also use role-play as a common strategy in session as well as exploring patterns of irrational or unhelpful thinking. I often utilize hand-outs for clients to illustrate various topics as well as serve as a resource for clients outside of therapy sessions. My counseling style is warm, collaborative and interactive. I treat all clients with respect, compassion and unconditional positive regard. I place high value on empowering clients and meeting clients where they are. I will individualize the treatment plan based on the goals explored and established with the client. Making the decision to attend counseling takes courage. Everyone deserve to be happy and healthy. Doing the work in counseling is worth the effort to achieve a better way of life. I'm ready to assist and support you in this journey.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I was born and raised in North Carolina. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Arts in Counseling both from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I have worked as a counselor in North Carolina and South Carolina for 19 years. I am licensed in North Carolina as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and in South Carolina as a Licensed Professional Counselor. If you are seeking counseling to solely address substance abuse or dependence, that would be beyond the scope of my licensure and I would not be an appropriate choice of therapist for you. I have enjoyed a variety of work experience in my 19 years of counseling. I have helped clients coping with longer-term problems, and clients working through different life stressors. I have helped clients address concerns related to depression, anxiety/panic attacks, self-esteem and motivation, family stressors, grief and complicated bereavement, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, trauma and abuse, career development, and adjustment to phases of life. I would describe my therapy style as being sincere and genuine, and comforting and interactive. I have enjoyed helping people of a variety of age groups, cultures, and lifestyles. My main therapy approach is Person-Centered Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also use interventions from Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused Therapy, skills for relaxation and distress tolerance, and mindfulness techniques. Person-Centered Therapy stresses “unconditional positive regard” and empathic understanding. I believe many of us strongly judge ourselves, and may also experience external judgement, and this often impedes positive change. I will offer a non-judgmental and supportive counseling experience to support you and help you utilize your own strengths. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy promotes change by examining the relationship between our thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. We sometimes develop patterns of thinking, either through our childhood experiences or stressors later in life, that often causes distress or makes it hard to achieve life goals. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help you identify if these patterns of thought are present and replace them with more positive and productive thought patterns. I enjoy spending time with my parents and friends, watching movies and historical documentaries, reading, yardwork, and weightlifting. I hope Betterhelp can help you with any problems you are experiencing. I also hope I can meet you and help in any way possible. For Disclosure purpose, things spoken/written in counseling are confidential, unless I were to think you were in immediate and clear danger of hurting yourself or someone else. At that point, I would need to contact your emergency contact and/or 911.

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 have worked with many students who struggled educationally due to learning, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. In addition, I maintained a private practice throughout the years. I strongly believe that in order to be successful, it is important to build a trusting and welcoming environment for my clients. I put a great emphasis on meeting clients where they are and establishing that respectful, trusting relationship. I use a solution focused approach that is customized for each individual and situation in order to help them achieve their goals. Each client is unique and has different needs, which is why I believe it is imperative to work together to develop an individual approach that focuses on their strengths and resources available. 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. This can help to ensure we are on the right track to helping you feel better and addressing your concerns.

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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Franklinton 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 Franklinton 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 Franklinton 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 Franklinton, 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 Franklinton 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. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Franklinton helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Franklinton therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Franklinton 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 Franklinton 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. 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 27525 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Franklinton 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.
