Hello and thank you for visiting my page. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina. I have over fifteen years of experience working with preteens to seniors. My experiences have taught me the importance of being an active listener who is nonjudgmental and noncondemning. In my work it is important for me to inspire others. My specialties include Ethnic discovery, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focus Therapy, and Executive Functioning skill development. Because every situation is different and flexibility is important I also use eclectic variations of meditation, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Strength-Based strategies. Since prayer has shown to relieve tension and provide focus, together we will consult about its use during the counseling sessions. My willingness to hear your words and heart will guide the depth of our discussions in the establishment of goals. In much of the Bible, we learn about peace, joy and well being. Together we will pursue and practice skills to diminish or resolve issues that get in the way of obtaining your own level of well-being. I am inspired by Philemon 1:5-6, and the good things Christ has for you. It would be my privilege to assist you in finding your place of peace, joy, and wellbeing.

Greetings! My name is Camille Green. Please feel free to call me by my first name. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in states of North Carolina, Georgia, and Nevada. I have been fortunate to work with many different people from all walks of life for over 13 years. As a LMFT, I have worked with adults individually and through couples and marital therapy. I have also worked with the LGBTQ+ population throughout my 13 years of experience. This work has included working with adults experiencing issues surrounding gender identity and interests in same-sex relationships. In addition, I have had substantial experience working with same-sex couples in couples, pre-marital, and marital therapy. Being a therapist who is also in a same-sex marriage, I directly identify with some of the issues within the LGBTQ+ population, perhaps providing a better understanding as to how to approach matters pertaining to the population. I am a therapist who takes a holistic approach, getting to know the whole person in an effort to better assist them in meeting their personal goals and ultimately feeling better. All facets of an individual's life are important; Including one's cultural background, spirituality, sexuality, and social and economical status, etc. I have extensive experience working with individuals in crisis, those who have experienced marital infidelity, those with depression and anxiety, the military population, and those with Serious and Persistent Mental Illnesses. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, and community mental health settings. Some of the modalities that I utilize are Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Structural Therapy. However, I am a therapist who likes to "meet the individual where they are," realizing that most people require an eclectic approach, encompassing various modalities. My goal is to make you feel that you are in a safe, non-judgmental, professional atmosphere where you feel comfortable to share your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in an effort for me to assist you in the best manner possible. I am looking forward to working with you and seeing you succeed! Here's to discovering your inner strength and ability to conquer anything life tries to throw at you. Remember..."Don't watch the clock; Do what it does. Keep going." ~Sam Levenson

My name is Courtney Davis and I have been a licensed therapist for 16 years. I have extensive experience with clients of all ages (children, adolescents and adults). My undergraduate studies are in Marketing. I coached competitive gymnastics throughout my undergraduate studies and I realized that I did more counseling than coaching. I realized then that I truly love people and love helping people become the best versions of themselves. This is why I chose to get my counseling degree in graduate school. I believe you learn from education, but I also believe that life experience is the ultimate teacher and guide. I may not have personally been through what you are experiencing but I can promise that I have experienced something similar and I can 100% be present and walk by your side through your journey and help you get to the other side. I believe in meeting you where you are in life with absolutely no judgement. I want to get to know you and support you through your journey. I look forward to talking with you soon. Warm Regards, Courtney

How to find counseling in Lattimore

Finding the best therapist close by in Lattimore can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Lattimore. 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 Lattimore, 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 Lattimore 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Lattimore area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Lattimore, elsewhere in Cleveland, or in the greater state of North Carolina.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore, 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 28089 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore 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 Lattimore, 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.

Lattimore 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.
