I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and have been providing counseling services for 11 years in both face to face and virtual platforms. During my time I have been able to assist many individuals struggling with a wide variety of struggles including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, severe and persistent mental health symptoms, relational and family concerns, and substance abuse issues. My approach to counseling in each and every session is one that is focused on meeting the individual where they are. I am focused on making this process warm and comforting for you as I understand that the concerns being brought to the sessions are ones causing great discomfort. The theoretical approaches I utilize are Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Behavioral Therapy. Again, all of this is just saying that together we will begin processing through the concerns being presented and identify ways in which you can begin working through them. I understand that it takes a great deal of courage for one to reach out and ask for help and I commend you on taking this step. I am so blessed that you are choosing to allow me to be apart of this journey with you and am looking forward to meeting you. At this time I am able to provide services via the chat sessions, phone sessions and messages. I respond in the chat Tuesday through Saturday checking in several times per day.

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!

I believe every person has a story, and every story has purpose. Your experiences matter. Who you are matters. We all have things that become obstacles, but it is when those obstacles interfere with our ability to live each day to its fullest that we need support to address them. I have worked with all people of all ethnicities, religious affiliations, ages, and states of health to address anxiety, depression, and stressful social dynamics. I provide a safe non-judgmental space to share what is in your heart, and work together to process that into actionable steps for improving daily life, in whatever way that means for you. I have used motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, Labyrinth work and guided imagery as specialized ways to uncover and process emotions and issues.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Archbold 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.

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 Archbold 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 Archbold 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 OH, 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 43502 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 Archbold 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 Archbold 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 Archbold, 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.

Archbold 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.
