It is often said that courage is found in unlikely places. Welcome to Better Help! I applaud your courage today! I know that this approach is quite different from a traditional in person therapy setting. I frequently tell the individuals that I work with that if "Plan A" doesn't work to just remember that the alphabet has 25 more letters! In other words, don't ever stop seeking life changes or asking for HELP when needed. There is often more than one solution to a problem and it is all about collaboration with that "just right" professional. I'm sure you're wondering if this approach will be a good fit for you, too. A little bit about me. My name is Stephanie Bigham. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the beautiful state of North Carolina. I grew up in Florida but have resided in N.C. for over 15 years. I attended the University of Florida (Go Gators!) where I earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Major in Sociology and Minors in Psychology / Education. I went on to receive my Master of Social Work Degree from Florida International University. I am also a Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator. I have worked in many settings including a mental health clinic for individuals with developmental delays, a hospital / NICU, a respite program, a private practice office and a classroom. I have been a full time "stay at home mom" and also worked as a substitute teacher for grades K-5. My perspective is unique in that my career path has expanded outside of the traditional Mental Health pathway. I use a mindfulness/ acceptance based cognitive behavioral therapy approach to treatment in order to guide individuals to become more self- aware. I help individuals to notice their thoughts, feelings and attitudes in a direct but nonjudgmental way. By tracking and noticing dysfunctional thoughts one may obtain relief from feelings of stress, anxiety, depression or conflict. I require active participation as well as collaboration and often give homework to explore between sessions. I also take a psycho-educational approach to treatment as information also leads to awareness and helps individuals learn better techniques for coping with stressful life situations. My specific areas of expertise include: Stress/Anxiety, Parenting Issues, Family Conflict, Relationship / Divorce Issues, Motivation/ Self-confidence, Coping with life changes, Depression and Grief /loss. I also work with individuals experiencing career difficulties or seeking Professional Coaching. I leave you with one final quote from the great Vince Lombardi, "It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get up!" I look forward to working together with you on this journey of introspection, growth and change.

Hello! My name is Kristin, and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of North Carolina with over ten years of experience providing therapy services. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: individual and group outpatient therapy, intensive outpatient therapy with community-based interventions, and treatment teams serving individuals with co-occurring disorders. I currently also serve as a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS). I graduated from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte in 2013 with my MA in Counseling and have enjoyed working with a variety of individuals since. My approach to therapy is client-centered, trauma-informed and humanistic: I believe each individual has their own unique set of strengths, abilities, and experiences which are equally valuable. I also believe that each individual deserves a safe and non-judgmental space to explore ideas about themselves and how they fit in the world (unconditional positive regard). My hope in working with you is that I can support you through your own process of self-discovery and improved self-efficacy (knowing you are capable of healing and working towards your goals). My therapeutic style draws from several different treatment modalities, which I use interchangeably to meet your needs. These include Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. Each of these modalities offers strategies we can use together to help you identify your own personal values, hope and motivation, as well as assist you in learning ways to challenge the inner beliefs and dialogue that may be acting as barriers to your self-esteem and confidence. Let me know if you have any questions. Finding a counselor you feel connected with is important.

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I have worked with all ages and walks of life in my 20 plus years experience. As a seasoned therapist I believe that a successful outcome of therapy goals begins with a harmonious relationship with the client. This begins with a clear understanding of the needs and desires of the client. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy and Integrative therapy are used to reach the best desired outcome for the client. My approach is to have a kind, caring and sensitive demeanor, yet direct and firm as needed to achieve success. I strive to listen well and give appropriate feedback. I attribute my successful record as a therapist to having the education, knowledge, work experience, and confidence to work with each client, and consider it a privilege to work with each one. I have gained volumes of wisdom through training and personal experiences in my life. My desire is to resolve emotional and behavioral problems and disturbances, and to help people to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. I would be honored to work with you.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in High Point.

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

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in High Point or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point, 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 27282 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 High Point 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 High Point 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 High Point, 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.

High Point 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.
