Hello my name is Cali Park. I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor and national certified counselor. I have 6 years counseling experience working in a variety of settings. I am most passionate about helping women develop a greater relationship with themselves to ensure long lasting healthy relationships with others. My expertise when working with adults include helping clients improve self esteem and self worth , reduce loneliness and isolation, recover from abandonment and breakup trauma, reduce depression, anxiety, and procrastination, set and achieve realistic goals that add purpose and meaning to life, learn healthy communication to apply at home, with friends and with coworkers. I approach counseling as a collaborative process in which the client and I will be able to establish a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship. Throughout the relationship we will work as a team to explore and define present life difficulties and develop goals for the future that are easy to apply to daily life and solution focused. If you feel worthless, discouraged, heartbroken, unfilled, un motivated, overlooked, or broken, I am here to support you. I look forward to meeting you.

Hello! My name is Kara Snodgrass and I am looking forward to this new way of counseling. I am licensed as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with 10 years experience working as a therapist. Before becoming a counselor I worked as a family support worker for 5 years. My experiences include in-home work with families and children, substance abuse, child protective services, foster care and crisis work with the goal of reunification when possible. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including relationship issues, parenting problems, with a special focus in anxiety. I have a collaborative, client centered approach. I offer a variety of interventions depending on your needs. My approach is focused on you, I take your lead but can nudge if I think it will be helpful. I am empathetic and and believe we are all struggling in some area. You are welcome to message me anytime through Better Help. The frequency with which you can have access to a counselor to work through day to day emotions and problem solving is extremely beneficial for most and a nice change from traditional outpatient counseling. I usually check messages each day, five days per week. I offer messaging, live chat and phone sessions with limited availability in the evenings and weekends. Please note that what you see in my calendar may not reflect my only availability so you always want to check that out with me through messaging first.

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and trauma specialist with over 8 years of experience working with individuals experiencing varying levels of unwanted mental health obstacles. An office and couch was not my style to impact others, so I built my career coming to them, working with clients inside residential treatment, in-patient psychiatric, and in-home counseling with high risk families. By having worked for the high risk community, I can say not only have I heard "almost" all, but I've been there and carried some of the battle scars too. I've always preferred environments where I've had to give my best work but work fast with client's who did not have the time or patience for a more drawn out treatment. It's been my desire to specialize with those clients who were dealt the most challenging of hands. I guess you can say those are my people. I'm accustomed to working in areas of depressive episodes, panic and anxiety, broken family relationships, life stressors, parenting issues, abnormal psychiatric, spiritual issues, and traumatic experiences. While I may utilize multiple evidence based treatment strategies, inner healing doesn't come in a box, and is different for everyone. I believe the best therapy is done through having as much first hand experience in the trenches with what it is that we are working on. Some wisdom can only be gained by experiencing. Is this counseling or therapy? Counseling may look like just casual chatting back and forth via messaging as some seem to prefer to have a second party help them look at their life. For others focusing on more significant distresses, therapy could consist of the traditional order: a more comprehensive session to identify the sometimes hidden roots of the problem (what sustains it) and then at your readiness some live sessions to begin the work to promote your mind and body Healing, Our Head is still attached to our body, so for some it may be necessary to take re-ownership of both components. But you may be thinking: Therapy doesn't really work, I'm not a mushy feelings type of person... You're in good company; We're just re-learning balance. You used to have it! Finding again that place of optimal functioning. If your mind rattled your world enough to get you to even consider therapy, it's more likely you have a talent for a very strong mind, but you may just need to learn to control your power. Our professional relationship and your trust in my care for people and confidence to help them overcome, I hold as my greatest skills.

24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Thank you for visiting my profile! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Certified Integrative Mental Health Professional. I am licensed in the states of Alabama and North Carolina and I am an approved out-of-state telemental health provider for Florida. I work with individuals facing issues including but not limited to: PTSD/trauma, adjustment/transitional stress, anxiety/depression, interpersonal/relational, and sociocultural/identity struggles. With over 29 combined years of working in the mental health field in a variety of public, private, and virtual settings, I integrate systemic, holistic, neuro-biopsychosocial, and, traditional psychotherapeutic approaches to assist you in your journey toward emotional and relational healing and balance. My style is relaxed, reflective, casual, conversational, compassionate, and creative. I am naturally empathic and intuitive and my hope is that these traits assist with alleviating anxiety about the counseling experience. I invite you to ask questions if you have any questions about me or my approach in order for you to make an informed decision about what is best for you on this brave healing journey you have chosen to pursue. Additional info: *I have a pretty quick response time if you send me a message. However, messages will most likely be returned in the early morning and late evening hours (Central/US time). Although I may respond over a weekend, I cannot ensure that will always be the case. *I require at least the first live session to be a video session. Using phone (audio-only) and live chat(text-only) options can be used for future sessions as long as it seems clinically appropriate. *The availability you see is not the only availability I have. Because I do have a private practice in addition to working with BetterHelp, I needed to create an availability calendar that would not likely lead to an accidental double booking. Feel free to ask about a time slot that is not listed. I do not have availability options after 2:00 pm (CST), but I do offer early morning and weekend morning availability. *While I cannot guarantee a specific appointment day/time each week, I do try to offer a predictable, recurring appointment schedule for you when I can so it helps with consistency. *I absolutely love what I do! Counseling is not and has never been just a "job" for me. By nature, I am a helper and an encourager. I love empowering others to find and be the best version of themselves and to learn skills in the area of self-love, self-acceptance, and self-advocacy while still on a path of self-improvement, growth, awareness, and getting out of the rut of a comfort zone that has interfered with individual, relational, or career success. I appreciate that BetterHelp allows for opportunities to engage/encourage/empower/provide psychoeducation in between sessions which is often difficult to do in traditional therapy settings. *BetterHelp has journaling features for the clients and worksheet features for the therapist that can be assigned. There may be times I might assign some in-between session "homework", though not always in journaling/worksheet form. Sometimes it's an observational task or an opportunity to implement a skill we might be exploring in sessions. This will help keep you focused, prepared, and possibly less emotionally overwhelmed about the inner work you are doing by having an outlet of expression that still accomplishes the inner goals you have for yourself. It's also a great way for you to feel successful and empowered! Any task or homework or expressive outlet assigned will depend on your unique situation and the goals you have set for yourself. *As a licensed therapist, I am required by law to obtain your full name, date of birth, contact information, consent for counseling, and verify photo ID. I am unable to work with anonymous clients. *Consent is given when you review and accept the member information form prior to our first appointment. Your full name, contact information, date of birth, and photo ID can be sent as a secure message on the platform or I can obtain that information during our first session. I am happy to answer any questions regarding this process. * I encourage you to upload a headshot photo of yourself in the profile picture because there may be times I have clients that have the same first name and it helps me remember who is who when appointments are scheduled. *If you are experiencing recent and/or frequent and/or intrusive thoughts of harming yourself or others, this platform is not designed for these types of cases. Please seek emergency or crisis assistance, or off-line therapy in your local area. Again, if you have any questions for me to assist you with making an informed decision about your counseling experience and therapeutic goals, please do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to working with you!

ABOUT ME I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). I believe that the counseling relationship is a very authentic interaction between therapist and client. The relationship alone has the power to produce change as long as there is trust, honesty, and motivation. In my practice, I am guided by three theoretical orientations: Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I view counseling as a journey of self-exploration and self awareness by the client. I, as the counselor act as a catalyst for this journey. I would love to assist you in coming up with solutions and reaching your desired goal. I believe that the client is the expert of his/her life and that they hold in possession the answers to their own questions. I look forward to assisting you in identifying those answers by helping you bring them to the surface.

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 Seaboard, 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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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.

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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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.

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.

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

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

Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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 27876 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 Seaboard counselor?

Before seeing your Seaboard 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 Seaboard.

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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard 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 Seaboard, 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.

Seaboard 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.
