I have 7 years of counseling experience and look forward to getting to know you better. My highest degree is a Doctorate of Philosophy in Rehabilitation Counseling and Administration. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC # 9531) and a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC # 00272838). I employ a multi-systemic approach that is founded upon person-centered therapy and evolves to include: Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-focused, and Narrative therapies. I incorporate techniques that assist in the modification of behavior and cognition such as emotion regulation, development of alternative behaviors, and negative thought replacement. Using these techniques, I hope to assist you with describing and finally living the narrative of your ideal life. My counseling style is nurturing and empathetic, with honesty and challenge. I want to provide a therapeutic relationship where you feel validated and confident enough to make steps toward bettering your life. We all have an idea of the person we want to be and sometimes we need a safe space to grow and then take flight. I’m hoping our interaction can be that for you. I am a HUGE consumer of various fandoms. I enjoy all things that allow my nerd flag to fly. I love connecting with others over things that are special to them and I look forward to connecting with you.

In life, you seek out the ability to have peace, harmony, a fulfilling career, and a happy family. However, sometimes these things do not happen, or things go astray. Life happens, tragedy comes about, or situations arise to make you feel unhinged. Sometimes, you just need someone with whom you can unload. Someone who will walk you through solutions to the problems at hand. I would like to be that person for you. I have a Master's of Divinity in Theology, a Master's in Professional Counseling and a Ph.D. in Psychology. I am certified in AACC counseling with panic disorder; Neurobiology and Addiction; Certified Clinical Trauma Professional; and Certified in PCIT for Traumatized Children. I also have a certification in sexuality and sexual addiction. I have experience working with clients with depression, anxiety, PTSD, Tourette Syndrome, OCD, marital issues and numerous other mental health issues. I have also worked with military members and their families dealing with PTSD related issues. I have also worked with clergy members and their families dealing with issues of the church.

Hello, I'm Brenda and I've been a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina for just over 17 years. I've been working in the public mental health sector for a majority of my career. I graduated in 1997 from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling. Prior to working in the mental health sector, I was a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and assisted people with disabilities to find and maintain employment. I utilize a diversity of approaches in my counseling treatment as every individual is unique and has their own needs. The primary modalities of treatment that I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, motivational interviewing, and person centered therapy. I've worked with both individuals and groups during the course of my practice and feel both are helpful to work toward individual growth. I have a great deal of experience working with depression, anxiety, chronic illness, phobias, social anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and LGBTQ issues; however, I have also worked with other populations as well. The ability to succeed in therapy is up to you. I feel that I function as a catalyst to help you with making change. You've already started your journey towards change as you've started to seek out a therapist. Let's see what we can do together to help you achieve your success in life.

No matter what kind of challenges or difficulties or painful situations you go through in your life, we all have something deep within us that we can reach down and find the inner strength to get through them. Alana Stewart My name is Melanie Griffin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), practicing in North Carolina (#C11127). I am also licensed and have done extensive work as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Connecticut (#007008). I have been a Therapist/ LCSW for over 12 years and take pride in the fact that I have worked with a diverse population/culture of people. I received my Master of Social Work (MSW), from Southern CT State University, I also hold a Bachelors (BS) in Public Health. I have done work in such areas as Forensics, Community Services, Crisis Intervention, Trauma, Mental Health and Addictions, Geriatrics, Adolescent Services and Family Reunification. I firmly believe in “Meeting the client where they are”. This, I believe has enhanced my role as a truly empathetic therapist and has helped me to understand the importance of Person-Centered Therapy. CBT is another theory which I strongly believe really works in therapy. I understand that reaching out for help can not only be scary, but for many it still holds a realm of stigma and shame, this is why I am so conscious of the therapist’s role of engaging with their client for the purpose of opening up the gates of trust, empathy and understanding. If I can help you in anyway, please reach out to me.

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to serve you. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina , with over 11 years of experience in Rehabilitation Counseling and 4 years of experience in mental health therapy. My goal in every therapy session is to help you become "fully functioning" in whatever form that looks like for you. I truly believe that we are all equipped with the tools to allow us to thrive and be successful, we just all need a little help in learning to utilize those tools. I whole-heartedly believe in Psychological Flexibility. Throughout life, we will all be thrown a few curveballs. Being equipped with the tools and skills that gives us the ability to adapt to life changes or cope with difficult life events can greatly change our quality of life. For that reason, I encourage all individuals to set the pace of their time in counseling. We will always have clear goals and then we will work together to allow you to learn what is needed to reach your personal goals. This will allow you to continuing to utilize skills learned during therapy long after counseling is done. I have experience in therapy with adolescents and adults and I have worked with individuals with a wide range of mental health disorders, from varying ethnic backgrounds. I am also experienced in the areas of anxiety, depression, career difficulties and various issues with people with disabilities. My theoretical approach to counseling is interactive in style and based on the cognitive behavioral therapy model. Most sessions will focus on self-awareness, choice, problem solving, and setting goals for the present and future. Outside of session, there may be homework assignments such as journal writing, reading, art or other methods of self-discovery and expression. I currently offer live chat sessions during the day and live video and phone sessions at night. If there is a specific time you would like to meet that isn't open on my calendar. Please let me know as my schedule is flexible and I am open to accommodating your availability.

I am licensed in North Carolina with over 5 years of professional counseling experience. I have experience in outpatient and inpatient settings, helping clients with stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, & veteran and relationship issues. I work primarily from a person-centered and existential orientation while also drawing techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solutions Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I also use Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) in my work with trauma and the Gottman method for couples. My goal is to highlight a person’s strengths and achievements to aid in developing healthy coping mechanisms for stress management, dealing with hardships, and trauma. To accomplish this a person must challenge and examine their own thoughts and feelings about themselves and their world. A new perspective can aid in discovering tools to overcome obstacles and empower them to make healthier decisions in life. Counseling is a challenging process and takes time, but can lead to a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to our journey together.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wallburg 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 Wallburg 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 Wallburg 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 Wallburg, 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 Wallburg 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 do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Wallburg 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.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Wallburg 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 lot of people in NC, providers may be booked out with clients.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Wallburg 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?

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.
