PROFESSIONAL DISCLOSURE STATEMENT QUALIFICATIONS Dr. Del Rio is trained in couples and family therapy, with a specialty in clinical mental health counseling. His experience is vast, and it includes individuals, couples, families, and groups of various backgrounds and with diverse clinical needs. He has taught and supervised future mental health professionals over the past 18 years. He is a national certified counselor, a licensed independent mental health practitioner in Nebraska, and a licensed professional counselor in Illinois. His clinical experience includes anxiety, depression, grief, adaptation, trauma, life changing events, and existential issues. With couples and families, his clinical experience focuses on their common and tenable goals for therapy, including: sexuality, relationship satisfaction, healing, grieving, and any other systemic life task that may be important to systemic clients. His commitment is to preserve respect for human diversity and individual human dignity. THERAPEUTIC APPROACH Dr. Del Rio is interested in essential features of human nature and aspects of human development. He applies classical philosophy to his understanding of today's axial period. His research focuses on spirituality, sexuality, virtue ethics, process groups, clinical supervision, and couples and family therapy. He is the author is the Spiritual Typology Inventory, a non-religious taxonomical assessment of human spirituality. This inventory is based on Dr. Del Rio's theory: Hylomorphic Attitudinal Spirituality, a tautological "substance" explanation of human ontology. His approach to therapy is primarily Rogerian, and systemic (structural, generational, emotional, and solution focused). But it is his client/patient needs that determine the approach he must follow. For example, there may be people who need objectivity and accountability, or there may be others who wish to delve into early experiences; and he adjusts to the needs of his patients. He views therapy as a collaborative process that empowers people to live meaningful lives. He is happy to provide video therapy to people who may need it. His experience teaching graduate students to become mental health practitioners keeps him current on ethics, and best practices. He brings this wealth of experience to each therapeutic encounter, and he is ready to listen to you. Dr. Del Rio understands how anxious people may feel when beginning therapy, particularly with a new clinician. He welcomes clients openly and spends time discussing anticipations clients may have, and how therapy works: people make sense of their experiences, and make choices to improve their experiences or relationships.

With 10+ yrs. as a licensed therapist and 15+ yrs. working in the human services field, I have assisted many individuals, couples, and families through life’s challenges. I have extensive experience working in a variety of settings. Settings have included private practice, non-profit organizations, in-home therapy, therapeutic group homes, and juvenile & adult detention centers. In each setting, I’ve assisted clients through life’s positions that are not planned on being in, and yet find ourselves in. I believe in a holistic approach to wellness in which a healthy mind, body, and soul lead to a happier, more fulfilling life. I look to strengthen the core of each individual and couple to be able to strive, not just survive, through difficult moments. I provide tools and resources for short-term and long-term growth. The hardest and yet one of the more alleviating steps a client can take is the first step to reach out. As a partner in the therapeutic process, I meet each session with support and commitment.

My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, and mindfulness therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I do want to share with you that I am dyslexic, and I have found that live chatting is not a way I can be really effective as a therapist. I am comfortable communicating via messaging, but unfortunately I am not able to offer live chat. I prefer to offer both live phone, and live video sessions. I look forward to working with you!

Whatever roadblocks you face, we will develop concrete solutions through an individualized approach. What you are going through needs to be validated and heard. I focus on working with severe mental illness and supporting my LGBT+ clients. I also believe men's issues are neglected and therefore increasingly important in a society that disourages men from expressing emotion. As your therapist, you can expect me to be calm & non-judgmental. Together we will address the source your stress and guide you to make lasting changes. I know seeking help can be a process. Reaching out to initiate therapy is a sign of strength on your part! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hi there. My name is Teresa Noah and I am a licensed mental health and substance use counselor. I have 10 years of experience working with individuals from a variety of different backgrounds and life experiences. Through my experiences, both professional and personal, I have developed the following beliefs. First, and what I believe to be most important, is that I do not believe people are "broken". I believe people are amazing, resilient, unique souls who have an incredible capacity for healing and change. I believe we are significantly impacted by our experiences, both past and present, oftentimes in ways that are completely outside of our awareness. These experiences shape our beliefs about ourselves and the world, which then are transferred and reinforced within our relationships. These relationships certainly include our relationship with ourselves, our family, friends, and community. However, these relationships also include our relationship towards work, alcohol, drugs, food, sex, money, to provide a few examples. My goal is to listen to better understand your personal story. Through this understanding, I will help you identify your beliefs and patterns that are impacting your personal level of happiness and satisfaction with life. It is through the process of gaining awareness that we become empowered to create the meaningful change we are so desperately seeking. I am so very excited to begin this journey 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 Lyman, 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. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Lyman or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lyman 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 Lyman 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 Lyman may not take health insurance, some in the state of Nebraska 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 Nebraska 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 Lyman, Nebraska 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 Lyman 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.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Lyman helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Lyman therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Lyman 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 Lyman 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 NE, providers 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 69352 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Lyman 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 Lyman 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 Lyman, Nebraska 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.

Lyman 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.
