I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor licensed in North Carolina with over 8 years of experience working as a counselor and therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and various mental health diagnoses. I have had the privilege of working in both outpatient and inpatient settings, in order to assist individuals in progressing towards their personal goals. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. Theoretically, I work from a Cognitive-Behavioral, Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused approach. A Cognitive-Behavioral approach focuses on behavior and how behavior is reinforced or negated by what happens as a result of the behavior occurring. A Person-Centered approach is based on the philosophy that people are basically good, while also acknowledging that people must advance developmentally to become what they are intended to be and reach their full potential. A Solution-Focused approach focuses on the future and encourages the client to establish meaningful personal goals, as well as identify the available resources to reach those goals. The theoretical approach that I utilize integrates all of the aforementioned theories and their techniques, in order to personalize counseling and make it as effective as possible for each individual client. As a client, you are in complete control and may choose to terminate our counseling relationship at any time. In my experience, the most difficult step in the counseling process is the first step; and that is being willing to ask for help. I know how difficult asking for help can be, but if you are willing to take that step, I would privileged to assist you in working towards living a happier and healthier life!!

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

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist with over 10 years of experience. My interactions in therapy includes me being warm and encouraging while also promoting accountability. I have provided therapy in varied settings with a wide range of individuals. Issues addressed have included but are not limited to: family conflict, childhood trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety and feeling lost. I do not believe in "fixing" people; however, I do believe in recovery! I utilize an eclectic counseling approach consisting of cognitive-behavioral methods, along with a person-centered approach. Cognitive-behavioral therapy consists of techniques used to reduce emotional stress and negative behavior patterns in thoughts and perceptions, such as cognitive restructuring, problem solving, and modifying thoughts. Person-centered therapy focuses on the interpersonal relationship of the counselor and client, and identifying the client’s feelings and accept or alter these thought processes. Gestalt therapy is grounded in the client’s “here and now”. The initial goal is for clients to gain awareness of what they are experiencing and doing now to become whole or complete. Reality therapy focuses on keeping the client in the present with emphasis on client responsibility for success. Motivational Interviewing is often used and endorsed at my current place of employment due to effectiveness of the treatment modality when treating substance abuse and/or dependence. These therapy modalities are well established, researched, and highly respected. Deciding to seek out and utilize help takes courage and strength. I would like the opportunity to support you on your journey. I look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck, 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 Scotland Neck 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 can also try a Scotland Neck 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.

A Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck 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 Scotland Neck, 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.

Scotland Neck has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
