Greetings and Welcome, Thank you, in advance, for this esteemed consideration. Choosing a therapist can be as daunting as the inner work itself and one of my initial goals is to always honor the courageous decision to allow someone "in" (which can often be a difficult step to overcome). It takes a certain amount of strength to recognize when a little assistance may be needed to get through life's challenges (recent or long-standing), and I would welcome the opportunity to be a helpful, therapeutic ally. I am a client-focused Counselor with 25+ years of experience in inpatient and outpatient settings. As an accomplished care-setting clinician, engaging communicator and empathetic listener, I strive to create a safe, authentic and collaborative space that supports your current needs and encourages overall well-being. Helpful in that purpose, is respecting the importance of understanding the issues from your perspective utilizing evidence-based modalities that include, but are not limited to motivational interviewing, client-centered/narrative/solution-focused and talk therapies. In partnering with me you can look forward to being heard objectively and valued. Together, let’s endeavor to increase clarity and lessen uncertainty or doubt. You’re not alone. It’s nice to e-meet you!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Missouri with 14 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients to address issues relating to depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship issues, and career challenges. Are you feeling: Apathetic? Confused? Tired, worn out? Misunderstood by others and yourself? See life as a bunch of "puzzle pieces"? If you feel any of these emotions, then it's time to make a change. I would be honored to help you take those "puzzle pieces" and empower you to create the mosaic masterpiece you are so ready to see manifest. In my role as a therapist, I am here to help my clients develop healthy ways of thinking about and dealing with the issues you have mentioned. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your circumstance will change, but how you view your circumstances will be crucial in the therapeutic process. I believe in meeting my clients where they are, which means finding out from the client what they believe their needs are and what they would like to focus on at this time. I also believe that clients should be able “pivot”, should their needs change during the course of therapy. The reason being is life is full of ebbs and flow and ever-changing. As situations and circumstances change, so do the needs of the client. The relationship between the client and the therapist is a crucial component to having a successful therapeutic process. As you take this step towards reclaiming and recreating the life you want, you should have someone you trust to work with you in getting your needs met. I am honored and humbled to walk on this journey with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Fort Edward 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 Fort Edward 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 Fort Edward may not take health insurance, some in the state of New York 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 New York 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 Fort Edward, New York 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 Fort Edward 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 can also try a Fort Edward 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 Fort Edward 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 NY, providers may be booked out with clients.

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

Fort Edward 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.
