Life is not easy, and I know that finding the right therapist can be hard. However, I strive to provide you with a positive and relaxed therapy experience through active listening, empathy, support and respect. Together, we will explore only the issues that you feel are important to your personal mental health journey. We'll find effective coping skills that you can use in your everyday life to better manage negative thoughts and upsetting emotions. I want you to be able to end each therapy session feeling supported, heard, and more confident and empowered to take control of whatever stressors life is throwing at you right now. I am actively licensed in the United States as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Counseling. I have 15+ years of experience in the mental health field and am in my late 30's, married, and a mother. I have worked in a wide array of diverse behavioral health settings, including outpatient, residential, academic and school settings, community settings and most recently in a behavioral health hospital and psychiatric emergency department. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses, including mood & anxiety disorders, substance abuse, personality disorders, trauma and abuse, and supporting parents of kids and teens with developmental delays and ASD diagnoses, just to name just a few. I am also open to both secular counseling or counseling from a religious or spiritual perspective. I primarily utilize a cognitive-behavioral (CBT), Interpersonal (IPT) and person-centered approach to therapy. I aim to help you find your own solutions by examining how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interconnected and also focusing on any interpersonal challenges in your life. I seek to create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment where you maintain control of what is discussed, what goals are identified, and also what therapy approaches are utilized in sessions. In addition, I want to help find practical and healthy coping strategies that will work best for you personally; this might include how to stop the constant loop of negative thoughts often associated with depression and anxiety, or identifying ways to gain increased confidence around others and stop self-loathing. I also commonly utilize DBT, EFT, and ACT therapy strategies, as well as other modalities to help you learn effective ways to regulate difficult emotions. ****COMMUNICATION & THERAPY PREFERENCES: In addition to 24/7 unlimited messaging, I am available for weekly text-based chat sessions. I am temporarily not able to offer video-based sessions or phone calls, but I plan to resume these modes of therapy in the coming months. Therefore, I would encourage you to seek out another counselor if you are in need of weekly video or phone appointments at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I assure you that your sessions will be confidential and in compliance with the ethical standards set forth by the American Counseling Association. I would be honored to work with you during this important time in your life. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I want to support you in any way that I can, and I look forward to meeting you and beginning our work together!

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.

Hi, my name is Karen. I have a BS in Religion, a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy and I am licensed in the state of North Carolina as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. My approach to helping people is Eclectic Therapy. I integrate multiple psychotherapies from a variety of disciplines to customize the best possible therapeutic process for each unique client. Whether using a single treatment or a combination of treatments, each counseling session, each treatment plan is adapted to the needs of each individual client, depending on their problem. I have worked with clients in many venues: hospital, private practice, outpatient facility, crisis line. I have treated and co-treated numerous problems: schizophrenia, bi-polar, GAD, PTSD, ODD, OCD, family, marriage and couple relationship issues, pornography, grief, caregiver burnout, substance use, addictions, career changes, trauma, abuse, and more. Asking for help is not always easy but it can be extremely rewarding. I hope when we connect that my training, experiences and style is the right fit for you.

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 Momeyer area can be found below:

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

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 Momeyer 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 Momeyer 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 27856 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 Momeyer 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 Momeyer 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 Momeyer, 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.

Momeyer 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.
