Hi! Welcome to BetterHelp! I'm Jane. Congratulations on taking this step toward personal understanding and growth! It takes wisdom to identify that you could benefit from a professional's insight and assistance. It takes even more courage to actually reach out. Thank you for allowing me to be the person you trust. I'm an LCSW licensed in North Carolina. My education began with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from UNLV. My MSSW came from University of Tennessee. My counseling work began in Memphis, TN and over the years I have worked with a wide variety of people ranging from children to geriatrics. The types of issues I have expertise in is also quite varied. From sexual assault to depression and anxiety to chronic mental illness to hospice, I've done it. The first thing of importance in counseling is developing a trusting rapport. If you are not comfortable, it's hard to engage and make progress. My general approach to therapy is one of figuring out what fits my client's needs. I don't fit you into my style; I make the style and intervention fit YOU. I’m a firm believer that the success of therapy is not that a therapist “fixes you” or tells you what to do. It is about a relationship focused on discovery and solutions. You are the expert of your life and it is up to you, with my guidance and support, to implement changes that will bring you to a more satisfying place in life. I want YOU to feel the pride of success in overcoming these challenges. You can do this!! I very much look forward to walking this road with you.

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

For as long as I can remember, I have always been the person who my friends went to for advice. I always knew I wanted to help others, so I attended UNC Charlotte to receive my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling to turn my passion into a reality. It was not until I went through a difficult situation in my life, where I battled cancer in my twenties, that I realized exactly what I was meant to do. The feeling of being alone, and not having anyone who truly understood me, taught me that I never wanted anyone else to feel the way that I did. I have been blessed to work in environments where I had the opportunity to work with a diverse population of all ages on various different issues. I gained experience in working with individuals, couples, and families. I provide therapy for young adults and adults. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and life’s stressors. My approach in therapy is that you do not have to face life’s challenges by yourself. I will be there next to you to walk with you on your journey. I do my best to provide unconditional support, warmth, empathy, and understanding by providing you a safe and non-judgmental environment. I believe in using different types of therapeutic approaches in therapy since I believe everyone is different. I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, while remaining Person-Centered to help you recognize your strengths. I use different tools to help you learn the skills to help you cope with life’s stressors. I also believe in the importance of self-care as a part of your well-being. I hope to instill hope and positivity into your life.

13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has a passion for counseling and helping others. I have been counseling for 13 years and have addressed a variety of concerns with clients including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, stress, parenting issues, trauma, ADHD, relationship/marital issues, family related problems, academic issues, military and family life concerns, self-esteem, self-care, spirituality, and work related issues. I believe that building a positive therapeutic relationship is a key factor in helping others, so I make every effort to connect with my clients in a way that helps them feel comfortable in opening up about the issues they are experiencing. I love to operate from a strengths-based perspective which allows clients to tap into their inner strengths and use their natural abilities to overcome any barriers or obstacles they may be facing. Cognitive-behavioral therapy is another method I tend to use to help client's understand how changing their thoughts and mindset can influence their emotions and actions for the better. Exploring spirituality is another method that I tend to incorporate to help client's view their circumstances from a spiritual perspective. We all go through various challenges that may cause us to experience what I like to call "a rollercoaster of emotions," but the beauty is that we do not have to figure life out on our own. If you would like support as you attempt to sort through life's challenges I am here to help! I look forward to connecting with you!

35 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Nova Southeastern University in 1984. I have been a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida for over 25 years and am currently licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor(LCMHC) in North Carolina. I am also a national certified counselor (NCC) by the National Board for Certified Counselors .I am trained to work with individuals and groups, as well as teaching and supervising perspective counselors at Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Florida Theoretical Orientation: Counseling is a special type of relationship which demands that the counselor always consider the well-being of the client. Although, I have an eclectic point of view, my theoretical orientation is person-centered. I respect and value the goals of the client as the best path toward self-growth and personal fulfillment, so after a detailed intake session which includes family and personal history, identification of the issues, and importantly, client strengths as well as weaknesses, the client and myself, together, design a treatment plan which usually includes some behavioral contracts and homework assignments. I do not believe that I hold the answers to solve a client’s problems, but rather see my role as a resource and support person whose job is to empower clients to take personal responsibility for their own choices. I choose to engage the client in building resources through positive reinforcement, role-play, and esteem-building exercises. In addition to talk therapy, I expect the client to be an active participant in the therapeutic process. Treatment Options: I am also a Certified Heart-Centered Hypnotherapist and have found that hypnotherapy is one of the most effective treatment modalities used, producing lasting results while being cost effective because less sessions are usually required. I also employ Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT, also known as Tapping) as a useful practice in helping to relieve anxiety or change undesired behaviors. These techniques are only utilized after a full exploration of client needs and a thorough explanation of the processes and an agreement signed by the client. I believe in providing a safe environment that is non-judgemental and allows for feedback by the client to help focus the course of therapy, and if you choose to work with me, I will do my best to be honest and authentic in pursuit of your goals, and would be honored to be a part your journey.

Welcome, The counseling experience is one of a very personal, shared interaction; one of the most crucial aspect of this relationship is trust. People come to counseling because they want something to be different in their lives. The counseling process can be fun and exciting, and at times, possibly challenging. However, the goal will always be to bring about some positive change. My approach to counseling is best described as and can include: strength based, solution-focused, client-centered while utilizing cognitive behavioral and/or family systems techniques.

I view counseling as a process where I help my client explore, clarify and identify their needs and facilitate them in making changes in thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. I also value collaborating with other community resources in order to extend support for the well-being of the client. I look forward to working with you.

Hey, my name is Allison but I go by Alli and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to consider your mental health! I have a Master's degree from Winthrop University in Counseling and Development with an emphasis in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). I am currently in my third or advanced year of specializing in a trauma-informed approach to counseling called Somatic Experiencing (SE). I consider myself to be a grounded individual who understands the human experience and just how painful it is at times. However, I have complete trust in my clients' ability to heal themselves and build a more satisfying life with proper support. Nevertheless, I believe it is my moral responsibility to show up for my clients as a human myself. This means I do not believe in a cold and detached professional relationship with my clients. I practice professional immediacy, meaning I will interact with you and your story in a healing manner as we explore your life together. I believe that humans are delicate and it is a normal part of our experience to feel as if our lives are overwhelming. However, it does not have to be our experience to face this overwhelm alone. Nonetheless, I believe the only expert on you is you, and I am here to aid you in the way that resonates with you the best. Presently I work with adolescents, young adults, and adults. My main modalities for therapy include SE, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Experiential Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT).

I am licensed in Illinois, North Carolina, and Indiana, with 22 years of professional work experience. I am also a licensed clinical addictions counselor in Indiana. I have experience in helping clients with lgbtq+ related issues, relationship issues, family conflicts, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence.

Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Each of us holds the power to make choices that will enhance our lives and move us closer to our goals. Sometimes we are able to move towards change with deliberation and intent and other times we find ourselves in situations and circumstances where we feel an urgent need to change our thoughts, behaviors, or feelings. Change can be difficult, but my role is to provide you with the support you need to manage planned and unplanned transitions and changes. I believe that enhancing wellness and increasing a client’s sense of empowerment to make better choices will help clients become more capable of finding happiness and contentment in their lives. Helping clients learn to better manage life stressors and develop strategies for coping with developmental transitions and relational challenges are emphases in my work. In our work together, I may employ a variety of therapeutic techniques to encourage you to take new perspectives and engage in new behaviors that will help you better manage the challenges that have brought you into my office. Using a humanistic framework, and depending on the nature of the concern, I may use techniques from cognitive and behavioral therapy, existential counseling, choice theory, and feminist theory. I often incorporate client homework assignments into therapy including bibliotherapy, journaling, or other brief writing assignments.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Salisbury 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 Salisbury due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

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

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

Before seeing your Salisbury 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 Salisbury.

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 Salisbury 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 Salisbury 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 Salisbury, 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.
