I am licensed in North Carolina with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & coping with grief and loss. I also provide Christian-based therapy. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Further background: After graduating from Lee University in May 2007, I worked at Lighthouse Counseling and Life Skills Center in Chattanooga, TN. I gained skills in helping to complete therapeutic intakes, helping to oversee Life Skills classes, and facilitation of co-parenting courses. I moved to CO in and began working at Beacon Youth and Family Center, working with at-risk adolescents who resided at the facility. I then became a Program Counselor at the Council on Substance Abuse and Mental Health (Comitis Program), a residential facility for at-risk adolescents and for temporarily homeless families. During my time there, I assisted with suicide risk assessments and in-patient hospitalizations, when necessitated, intake screenings, co-therapy groups for adolescents and for adults, individual counseling sessions for adolescents and adults, family meetings, and aided in crisis management and de-escalation. During my graduate program at Colorado Christian University, I completed my supervised clinical hours at Michael Dawson Counseling and The Philippi Center in Aurora, CO. I conducted individual (adolescents and adults), couples, and group (children, adolescents and adults) therapy sessions in a faith-based setting. I also received extensive training in counseling clients (children – adults) in various stages of grief and in trauma resolution. I received training in Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP) during this time as well. I also completed clinical internship hours at Christ Haven Lodge – Home of Chuckie’s Place, where I helped to provide clinical support at retreats for families with children with special needs and helped to provide clinical support at retreats for military families affected by deployment and PTSD. I was then employed by the Child and Family Assistance Center at Ft. Carson Army Base in CO. While employed there, I aided in completing ER suicide and homicide risk assessments (for children – adults), crisis management and de-escalation, and facilitation of in-patient hospitalizations, when necessary. I conducted initial therapy interviews to establish treatment. Additionally, I facilitated individual and/or family crisis resolution sessions with children and adolescents. I co-facilitated adolescent, family, and couples therapeutic and educational groups. All of the clients I saw during my time working at Ft. Carson were military families facing issues related to deployment and military life and adjustment, and many were affected by PTSD. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and couples. I enjoy helping adolescents and adults resolve crisis, develop better coping skills to continue in their healing, and allowing space for clients to process areas that may be difficult to discuss with family or friends. I also enjoy helping couples to learn to communicate better, rebuild intimacy, and have a healthy marriage. It is my honor to be able to walk with people as they process grief/loss and/or trauma, and hopefully see resolution. It is my desire that each client feels safe and respected while in my treatment. I believe that the client must be invested in therapy for it to be truly beneficial and therefore believe that this a joint effort between the client and myself. I want to help each client develop and reach their own individual counseling goals, as there is not one approach or theory that works for every client. I come from a faith-based, Christian background, but will strive to honor my client’s personal spiritual values. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), EMDR, Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP), grief/loss therapy, trauma therapy, and have received training in The Gottman Method for couples therapy.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

You can also try a Spencer Mountain 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Spencer Mountain 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 Spencer Mountain 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 Spencer Mountain, 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.

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.
