Hello, my name is Jenny and I am a licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina providing therapy through Better Help. I am so glad you have decided to explore therapy. I completed a BA in Psychology from NCCU and earned my Master of Social Work at NC State. For over a decade, I have partnered with countless individuals in my work at local hospitals and outpatient to help them process their feelings and move forward with a healthier mindset. My overall message has always been, ' Go where you're celebrated, not where you're tolerated!' I believe in actively listening to understand the stressors, thoughts, feelings, and values of my clients and that the first step toward healing is self awareness. When we're confronted with problems it is helpful to have reflection from someone who is compassionate, has personal and professional experience, is educated and unbiased. But ultimately, I believe we're healthiest when we can become confident in knowing ourselves with and without affirmation from others. I employ a variety of strategies to help you re-frame the challenges of your life and navigate any trauma or loss. I am adept at solution-focused brief therapy. My foundation is built on cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy approaches. In essence, if you change the way you think, you can change the way you behave. I am grateful to provide therapy and would be honored to assist you .

As a therapist, I understand the bravery it takes to be completely vulnerable with another individual. My role in the counseling room is to meet you right where you are with respect, compassion, and non-judgement. I find it a privilege to journey with a client. Hi, I’m Tavares Bostic, I am a licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Best known for my down-to-earth and very sound approach, I look to help people marry the discontent they may feel in their lives, with proven coping mechanisms focusing on reducing symptoms related to their mental health diagnosis. With over a decade of experience, I have long been an advocate for helping remove the stigma attached to mental illness, helping couples renew their love and focus to one another, and ensuring that older adults in assisted living and retirement communities become educated on symptoms which are directly related to mental health diagnoses and become motivated to address them by engaging in psychotherapy and most appropriate psychotropic medication. I was blessed enough to earn my master’s in social work with a certification in clinical mental health from The University of Pittsburgh and my bachelors of social work from North Carolina A&T State University. I believe that the combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and Reality therapy is one of the most effective ways of empowering individuals to become their best. I have had the opportunity to work in multiple settings over the past 10 years and I’ve covered mental illness across the spectrum. Let’s sort out what troubles you in healthy ways by exploring your individual experience, and uncovering your unique strengths. I want to empower you to find your best path through this life as you heal from past hurts and search for meaning, purpose, and direction.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Princeville therapist?

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

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

Princeville 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 Princeville therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Princeville therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

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

Before seeing your Princeville 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 Princeville.

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 Princeville 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 Princeville 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 Princeville, 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.

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.
