9 years of experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Addition Specialist and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of North Carolina. I received a Master of Science in Substance Abuse and Clinical Counseling from East Carolina University in 2013. Over the past 9 years, I have worked in a variety of settings with individuals and couples struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, mood disorders, grief, self-esteem issues and relationship issues. In the counseling process I utilize Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Existential Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I use a person centered approach with the understanding that you know yourself and what you need better than anyone even if you are unaware of this at the present moment. We can work as a team to help you find your answers and help you reach your goals. I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in the counseling process. I am a firm believer that our thoughts and beliefs can direct our emotional wellness in a positive or negative direction. In some cases, the thoughts and beliefs we develop throughout life are inaccurate or even irrational. I believe that I can offer assistance in helping a person challenge irrational or automatic, negative thoughts that worsen depression, anxiety and other emotional challenges. I believe we do have the ability to identify, challenge and change thoughts that do not serve us well. We can create healthy and realistic thoughts that promote mental wellness. I truly love sharing this information with people because I have seen it work wonders in both myself and others. Also, I would like you to know that acceptance is paramount to me. I love working with all types of people. I believe my clients would say I have a warm, accepting and laid back personality. I want people to feel accepted no matter what they say, think or have experienced. I want people to feel they can tell me anything without the fear of judgement. Non-judgement is one of my strengths. It is important to feel you can tell your therapist anything without fear of judgement. You can find that with me. Please let me know if you have questions about me or think we would work well together.

4 years of experience

I am licensed in North Carolina with four years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with depression, stress and anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with grief and loss. I view life as a journey, and counseling as help and guidance in a portion of that journey when it becomes difficult. All of our journeys at some point will come to a place of hardship, pain, or sorrow. Counseling can provide both healing and the ability to overcome those obstacles that are holding you back from living your best life. My counseling style would best be described as eclectic. I use cognitive behavioral therapy because of its proactive nature, but also use interventions from other modalities. The most effective counseling to me addresses both the cognitive mental piece and the emotional piece as well. In other words, I want my clients to be able to express themselves and release pent up emotions but also understand the possible causes creating the issues. I believe the key to successful therapy is creating a safe environment that encourages openness and honesty and is free from judgment. I encourage my clients to express themselves without feeling as if they have to edit or filter their thoughts and feelings. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey. On a personal note, I am a widowed and remarried father of two wonderful but challenging teens. My journey has had certainly had some hardships but has also been filled with more blessings than I can count. Thanks for taking time to read this, and if you feel we might work well together, then please reach out. Either way, I sincerely hope you find the peace, balance, and happiness that you deserve.

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 Louisburg area can be found below:

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Louisburg 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 Louisburg 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.

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

Louisburg 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.
