Hi Everyone! My name is Kara Gubner. I am a licensed mental health counselor in New York with over 5 years of experience in the counseling field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also have experience working with people with developmental disabilities and/or autism and managing behavioral concerns/providing support and counseling to those individuals and their care-takers. In addition, I’ve also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse, and assisted in working with people in crisis situations. I have also worked in counseling and providing support to friends/family of a person who struggles with mental illness. My counseling style is open, empathetic, non-judgmental, and interactive. My approach is person-centered and it combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. However, I typically tailor counseling sessions/dialog and treatment plan to meet each person’s unique and specific needs. In most cases, I work with clients on increasing their self-awareness to better understand themselves in order to better assist on improving their situation. It takes a lot of strength and courage to begin a journey to bettering yourself and seeking therapists/therapy is a fantastic first step! I am here and available to assist you in this journey!

I believe each person’s individual experiences are vital to the therapy journey. With that in mind, I invite you to utilize your own experiences and natural creativity as the primary tools to find positive and quick, but long-lasting solutions to problems. I embrace cultural diversity and truly respect people’s differences. People of all genders, sexualities, religion affiliations, and cultural backgrounds will find a friendly and warm atmosphere when meeting with me at Better Help. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I am partial to the holistic and integrative approaches to psychotherapy. The holistic view helps us become more awake in our day to day life, and in-tune with our emotions, thoughts, physical experiences, and spiritual senses. The integrative view of psychotherapy blends clinical interventions of various psychotherapy schools, and looks at each individual as unique. It yields the best results, and opens doors to positive and effective changes. I have been trained to work with adults and children struggling with mood changes, sadness, anger, anxiety, stress, trauma, and emotional emptiness. I provide therapy in English and Portuguese. Now, what brings you to therapy at this time?

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Coxsackie. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Coxsackie, 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 in the Coxsackie region and in the state of New York. 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 Coxsackie 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Coxsackie due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Coxsackie 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 Coxsackie 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 Coxsackie 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 NY, 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 12051 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 Coxsackie counselor?

Before seeing your Coxsackie 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 Coxsackie.

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 Coxsackie 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 Coxsackie 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 Coxsackie, New York 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.

Coxsackie 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.
