21 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Life Purpose and Career Coach based in North Carolina. I have a BA in Psychology with a minor in Women's Studies from Rutgers University in NJ as well as a Master's Degree in Social Work from the Graduate School of Social Work , Rutgers University.. I have training in Psychodrama from the Montclair Institute of Psychodrama in NJ. I have been in the field for over 18 years most recently working as a Behavioral Therapist and Program Coordinator of the Lifestyle Coaching Program at the Duke University and Medical Center Diet and Fitness Center in Durham NC.. I left there after 9 years to go into private practice. I have worked for many years in the area of weight loss and weight maintenance from the behavioral perspective - one's relationship with food. Within this focus I have had the opportunity of working with clients on the issues that often lead one to overeat.. " its not what you are eating - its what is eating you". Usually the issues have to do with other challenges in their lives and the way that they are dealing with them. .Some examples of this are anxiety, depression,marital issues, communication issues within interpersonal relationships, anger, grief, stress as well as other life challenges. I help my clients acknowledge and identify their challenges and concerns by asking key questions - "peeling back the onion"- then developing a plan of action to put into effect to challenge and overcome these concerns . I combine a client centered focus with solution based focus, cognitive behavioral therapy as well as approaches using a coaching model. I also will incorporate psychodrama techniques when I feel it would be helpful My style is warm and interactive. I am skilled in CBT ( cognitive behavioral therapy), Solution Focused Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, as well as incorporating some DBT skills as needed. As a life coach I am aware how important it is to not only gain insight into the issues but also develop a realistic plan to over come the challenges. When it may seem helpful I will also use some techniques used in Psychodrama to assist in the therapy . I truly love what I do and honor , respect and show deep compassion for all my clients. I believe that their trust in me is essential for our work together to be successful. I do not take that trust lightly. It takes great courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support, motivate and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

My license in Illinois is called LPC or Licensed Professional Counselor. My license in North Carolina is called LCMHC or Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor.I received my Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University in Illinois.

I now have moved back to the Midwest and reside in my husbands hometown in Wisconsin. In the past 8 years I have become a Nationally Certified Counselor as well as a Nationally Certified Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist. Throughout my years as a counselor I have worked with those who have been domestic violence perpetrators and survivors, those who have been court ordered for anger management and parenting classes and those who have need trauma counseling.

11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome! My name is Pam, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in North Carolina. I have over 10 years of experience in mental health, including eight years in outpatient therapy. I work primarily from the perspective of cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused therapies, but also incorporate other techniques such as mindfulness, skill-building, and trauma-based interventions. I believe strongly in the validation of clients’ feelings and experiences, to help remove stigma and shame. I will meet you where you are, free of judgement, and with full support for whatever goals you wish to pursue. I believe that with support, clients can be empowered to make difficult decisions and take charge of their own growth. While some decisions we make may not result in the most desired outcomes, I believe that everybody is just doing the best they can. I believe that you are the expert and author of your own life story, and the answers you need will come from within. I am a very direct person, known for my honesty and “cut-to-the-chase” attitude. I avoid buzzwords and clinical language most of the time, except for the purposes of educating the client, so that they can make fully-informed choices. In our sessions, I want you to feel relaxed, at ease, and open to sharing your honest self. I want our time together to be productive, but yet feel as comfortable as a chat between friends. Over my years of practice, clients have described me as “relatable,” “trusted,” and “real.” I am comfortable and supportive of diverse needs and lifestyles. While I make every effort to be “culturally competent,” I appreciate listening to clients tell their own stories. I share my home with my husband and dog. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, traveling, attending outdoor music festivals, and getting my money’s worth from streaming television.

39 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the mental health field for the last 38 years. The first part of my career was in in Virginia working as an emergency mental health therapist in a community mental health clinic. I moved to North Carolina 30 years ago. For 16 years I worked as a mental health therapist in an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Then I went to work for the military as a mental health therapist working with the Marines and Navy servicemembers for the last 14 years. I also had a part time private practice for 23 years where I primarily worked with couples who were working on their relationship. I did not have much opportunity in my full time job to work with couples which is my passion. I was able to meet with couples in the evening to help them resolve their conflicts and develop positive coping skills as a couple. I am semi-retired and living in Florida now. I love being close to family and the beach. I love working with people to help them achieve their goals. My style is to help you develop the goals you want to change and give you the tools to achieve that goal. It is my privilege and honor to help those who are seeking help for themselves. I see my self as an integrative therapist who utilizes many tools to help my clients. I check my messages several times a day seven days a week and will get back to you within 24 hours or less.

26 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Thank you for checking out my profile! My name is Terry L. Massey and I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 1996 with a B.A. in Psychology. In 1997, I began studying with the International Association for Applied Control Theory, and after completing an advanced two-year program, was certified in the counseling techniques known as Applied Control Theory (more commonly linked to Reality Therapy). In that same year (1999) I was accepted into the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work Program (with a concentration in Clinical Direct Services to Children and Families) and was honored in 2000 as the first recipient of the UNCSSW Social Justice Award. In 2002, I completed my graduate studies and earned my MSW, with 75% of my work at the Honors level. I have worked in the mental health and early childhood fields since 1994 (Charter Pines, American Daylight Treatment, Volunteers of America, Thompson Children’s Home, and United Family Services) and continue to practice as an Individual, Couple, Family and Group Psychotherapist. I have worked with a diverse population set, with ages ranging from four through adulthood, and continue to attend various trainings on a routine basis to ensure that I am offering professional and competent support to clients. My practices are rooted primarily in the Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive, Family and Systems, and Existential approaches to Psychotherapy. I am licensed in both North and South Carolina (LCSW and LISW-CP), hold an internationally recognized certification in Applied Control Theory, and is certified nationally as a Clinically Certified Sex Offender Treatment Specialist (CCSOTS) through the National Association of Forensic Counselors and the American Academy of Certified Forensic Counselors (accredited through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, the accreditation commission of the National Organization for Competency Assurance). I have chaired the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Social Work Community Advisory Board and serve as a consulting advisor for local mental health agencies providing Community Support Team and Intensive In-Home Services. I am recognized nationally as Clinical Supervisor (certified through the National Association of Social Workers) and provide routine supervision to both LCSW-A and LPC-A practitioners. In addition, I provide Clinical Supervision to Master’s level students through internship in various clinical agencies, including the C.W. Williams Community Health Center, where I served as the Director of Behavioral Health Services for many years. I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship between the psychotherapist and the client is a partnership through which the conditions for change are created in a holistic environment. I use multiple approaches to help a client system make a connection to their own strengths that will give them the resources to meet their challenges with more success. I am a firm believer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and I especially love working with systems from the Experiential and Existential approaches to psychotherapy. I believe that change is constant and should be embraced and as we reinvent ourselves in healthy ways, we re-create our lives. As we re-create our lives, we learn to respect and embrace change to continually reinvent ourselves. It's an awesome cycle, isn’t? That is my concept of healthy movement in human development. In essence, my approach to providing services is for the client to eventually not "need" me, but for them to move through the change process where I can transition from being the "emergency mechanic" to the "tune up guy". A few of my specialties are: Stress, Anxiety Family conflicts Anger management Self-Esteem and Self-Image Depression I'm also highly experienced in: Coping with life changes Abandonment issues Aging Issues Codependency Communication challenges Family challenges Impulsivity issues Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) Motivational Interviewing Narrative Therapy Solution-Focused Therapy Experiential Therapy Existential Therapy Years of Experience: 23

31 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker/licensed psychotherapist with 31 years of experience. During the course of my career I have worked to help individuals clients address issues that are standing in the way of them becoming a better version of themselves. I am licensed in the states of Florida and North Carolina. My experience as a psychotherapist has been with people of all ages, a broad range of issues and diverse cultural, ethnic, sexual orientation and spiritual backgrounds. My areas of focus are: helping the individual manage their response to stress in a healthier manner so the stress does not manage the individual, providing education and skills to cope more effectively with anxiety and/or depression, dealing with addictive behaviors, relationship issues, increasing personal empowerment over the consequences of trauma and abuse, developing an understanding of the impact of early life experiences on personal development and impact in present day situations, and improving self esteem/self confidence and self worth. The principles that guide my work as a psychotherapist are as follow: 1) Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. 2) Seeking therapy is one of he most courageous, empowering, and healing choices one can make. 3) Helping the individual to understand, heal, and overcome negative life experiences from the past, 4) It is the therapist's responsibility to earn the individual's trust during the course of the therapeutic relationship. 5) Mutual respect and collaboration between the therapist and the individual seeking therapy make it possible for positive change to happen. 6) When it comes to the therapy approach, "One size does not fit all." There is no one specific approach that is effective for everyone. Therapy is tailored to meet each person's unique style to enhance the likelihood of positive results. Congratulations on taking this very brave and important first step on the road to a better you!

How to find a therapist for counseling in Saluda

Finding the best therapist close by in Saluda can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Saluda that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Saluda. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Saluda, 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. 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 in the Saluda 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 Saluda 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Saluda area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find Saluda therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Saluda, elsewhere in Polk, or in the greater state of North Carolina.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Saluda area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Saluda 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 Saluda 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 Saluda 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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.

You can also try a Saluda 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 in Saluda?

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

Saluda 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 Saluda 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 Saluda 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 28773 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Saluda 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 Saluda.

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 Saluda 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 Saluda 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 Saluda, 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.

Saluda 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.
