10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Javonne Spivey and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, trauma, and relationship challenges. My counseling style is genuine and validating. I am passionate about building therapeutic rapport with individuals to help them identify strengths as they work towards achieving personal goals. I believe therapy consists of a collaborative relationship and therefore I welcome feedback and encourage individuals to be an active participant in their treatment. My approach to treatment combines cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I am intentional about educating individuals about the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and highlighting the power of thoughts and self-talk. I am a Christian and I enjoy utilizing scripture to help individuals achieve wellness that will lead to greatness. I have experience with implementing bible plans in treatment to help individuals address depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and purpose. I created a Christian mental wellness journal titled, Changing My Unhealthy Thoughts. The journal teaches the skills of utilizing scripture and taking thoughts captive to control and manage thinking patterns. The journal introduces a technique called prayerful thoughts. Prayerful thoughts are thoughts rooted in scripture. The journal encourages the reader to challenge unhealthy thoughts with scripture and replace unhealthy thoughts with prayerful thoughts. I appreciate your interest in working with me and I am looking forward to listening to your story and building a therapeutic relationship. My mission is to help you achieve wellness that leads to greatness. Let’s get started!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Adelphi 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 Adelphi due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Adelphi 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 Adelphi 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 Adelphi 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 OH, 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 43101 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 Adelphi counselor?

Before seeing your Adelphi 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 Adelphi.

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 Adelphi 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 Adelphi 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 Adelphi, Ohio 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.

Adelphi 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.
