Greetings! I am a licensed clinical social worker in the states of North and South Carolina. I have been licensed for 13 years during this time I have provided therapy services to youth, adults and families in office, community and home settings. The modalities I tend to use consist of solution focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, reality therapy and person centered modalities. Prior to becoming licensed I worked as a family preservation counselor and a youth residential counselor. I have an extensive background in family work including parent education. I pride myself in being an honest direct yet empathic clinician who believes despite therapy being a difficult and sometimes uncomfortable decision it should be an enlightening and awakening experience.

Is the hurt of a traumatic past still weighing on you? Or maybe you’re struggling with a toxic relationship or can’t find the confidence to stand up for yourself. I can help you learn to let go of the past. Even if it’s been months, years or even decades, there is hope. The idea of rebuilding our life is daunting, but not impossible. Above all, I help people cope with anxiety, depression and substance abuse to get back to living life to the fullest and being the best version of themselves. I believe in being transparent and honest with my clients. Sometimes the message that we need to hear isn’t easy to hear. However, through honesty, I foster an environment of focused growth and progress. Therapy is a way to understand the challenges you face and develop ways to overcome them with the support of someone in your corner. Life can be full of ups and downs that often come without a warning. While it’s natural to attempt to attempt to overcome these challenges on our own, this can often lead to additional stress, isolation and anxiety. Change doesn’t occur overnight, but through therapy, I can support you to in your journey towards a different future.

It is my passion to partner with therapists and other adults who find themselves depleted, exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious and frustrated with no space to creatively and couragously nurture their own wants and needs. I use a psychodynamic approach in my practice to help you make sense of the behavioral patterns that lead you away from what keeps you from feeling happy. I teach Self/Ego awareness to bring the unconscious to the conscious where action can be taken to change what is causing you harm and keeping you stuck. I align closely with and utilize the principals of ACT and IFS and believe wholeheartedly that you have all the answers within you already and it is my duty to help you discover them. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to support you as you move toward your most authentic identity where anxiety, overwhelm, and resentment cannot survive long because the space becomes filled with love, compassion, and acceptance which are truly powerful forces. I am licensed in North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida. I have 22 years of professional Social Work experience; 12 of those years have been under full clinical Social Work licensure. I am trained in various evidenced based practices, however, those I primarily use, have focused my training in and believe in for relief of mental health difficulty are ACT and IFS. I have worked across populations and in diverse environments throughout my 22 year career which helps me be a seasoned, dynamic and well-rounded therapist. I believe in meeting you where you are at in your healing journey and using my unique collection of expertise to help you get to where you want to go. I look forward to partnering with you and helping you be unapologetically and wholeheartedly you. Heidi V. Bailey, LCSW

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 Mooresboro, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Mooresboro region and in the state of North Carolina. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Mooresboro or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Mooresboro?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Mooresboro 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.

Mooresboro therapists 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 Mooresboro 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 Mooresboro 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 psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in NC, therapists 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 28114 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Mooresboro counselor?

Before seeing your Mooresboro 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Mooresboro.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 from a therapist. A Mooresboro 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 with a Mooresboro counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 therapist 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 Mooresboro, 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.

Mooresboro 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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
