Hi there! I am Brandi Geddings, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina. I am nationally certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors and am also active in the American Counseling Association (ACA) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). I desire to use my personal and professional skills to relate and meet where you presently are in life. This is done with empathy and curiosity using relaxed and practical methods. I believe strong rapport, nonjudgment, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard are of most importance when developing and maintaining a therapeutic relationship. My style of counseling involves taking a holistic approach to help you identify strengths within yourself, recognize any negative patterns or concerns, and develop improved thought patterns and coping skills. I tend to be easy going and talk without using a lot of clinical terms while taking a collaborative and equal position with you. I hope to walk alongside you and be supportive, non-judgmental, and open-minded as we navigate difficult areas of life. With many individuals, I use a strength-based person-centered integrative approach. This is often solution-focused and includes interactive CBT, DBT, techniques, psychoeducation, problem-solving skill-building, family systems, active/reflective listening, mindfulness, existential therapy techniques; with a general approach of holistic wellness (physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, environmental, occupational). You may also prefer a simple emotional outlet. I am here to listen and provide support for you. I have worked in an outpatient therapy setting with a diverse population of individuals that include children, adolescents, and adults across the lifespan as well as working across social and class lines. I provide counseling services through individual, family, group, and psychoeducational settings. Some areas of expertise and competence include teen and adolescence, anxiety, depression, trauma, mood disorders, life transition phases, adult ADHD, adjustment/transition, executive functioning, family dynamics, effective communication skills, and self-esteem. I hope to assist in meeting your personal goals and create practical coping mechanisms to build on. I won't suggest interventions that are complex or that doesn't make sense for your current life. We will work together to create goals that are meaningful and rewarding throughout the therapy process. I always encourage open communication regarding what is helpful and not to ensure a positive therapeutic experience and move forward towards goals. I cannot wait to meet and begin working with you!!!

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 Wentworth, 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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.

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

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

Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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.

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

Before seeing your Wentworth 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 Wentworth.

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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth 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 Wentworth, 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.

Wentworth 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.
