Do you find yourself consumed by anxiety and worry, no matter what you do? Does your depression make you feel stuck, unfulfilled, and unhappy? Maybe you are tired of the overthinking or the plate being too full. Maybe you are fed up with being alone or unmotivated. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel calm, in control, and relaxed. You’re ready to feel happy, motivated, and at peace . Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again and to find a new “normal,” and I can help you get there. Clients come to me looking for someone who “gets” what happened to them on a deeper level, because therapy should be a place where you feel safe & validated. Sessions are about more than just talking; we incorporate both your mind & body, so you can experience wholeness again. And we always go at your pace, never pushing to places you don’t feel ready to be. As an experienced anxiety and depression therapist, I believe that everyone has a right to feel in control, at peace, and happy. You don’t have to let the anxiety or depression control you anymore and you definitely don’t have to do it alone. I can’t wait to work with you.

Why do we keep arguing about the same things over and over again? I've tried to forgive you but I can't stop thinking that I would be happier with someone else. I don't know if it's worth the fight anymore. We've grown apart and I don't remember the last time we've experienced real connection, maybe you've never even loved me. I'm insecure and doubtful that things will change. Everyone says I deserve better. I'm not sure where we are anymore and I need support getting back to love. I just need a safe space without judgement to be vulnerable and say the things that I'm really feeling. Have you found yourself asking these questions? Have you contemplated cheating or divorce to solve the loneliness and regret? I can help! I enjoy sitting with couples as they sort through the tough stuff. I believe most relationship issues stem from a lack of safety and trust. I enjoy helping couples repair damage and build hope before, during and after the storms of life.

Hello and welcome! I am a licensed clinical social worker in New York with 24 years of professional work experience. Yet that isn't the most important characteristic for you to know about me. As a follower of Jesus Christ, it is through the lens of His love for others that I see the value of life, that I live in respect for ALL others, and I see the possibilities for sanctification (to set apart for special use or purpose), for healing, and for redemption to pain in this life. I believe Jesus to be the Son of God and that He is the greatest therapist to have ever lived and loved. A client's own belief system will be explored to help them attain their therapeutic goals as well as guidance given based on the Bible that is relevant to individual needs. Born and raised in Tennessee, Georgia was home before moving to New York. Through the years, experience has included that such as assisting clients with stress and anxiety, decision-making, communication & relationship issues, motivation, self esteem, & confidence, and parenting & family issues (including work with birth parents, foster and adoptive parents as well as families of children with disabilities). Feeling safe, respected, and heard is paramount for individuals and will be met with sensitivity and compassion. Our dialogue will be goal-directed, and the treatment plan will be tailored to your unique and specific needs with a time frame for growth in healing that brings hope. It takes courage to take steps for change towards more fulfilling and joy-filled moments in life. Through your journey, I am here to support & empower you, guiding you through to self-actualization.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rye 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 Rye 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 Rye 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 Rye, 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 Rye 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.

You can also try a Rye 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 Rye 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.

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 Rye 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 Rye 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 Rye, 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.

Rye 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.
