10 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, in Cincinnati, OH with over 10 years of experience. I have had the opportunity to work with children and families involved in the child welfare system. These individuals have displayed a variety of struggles which include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Substance Use Disorders and etc. These problems caused significant problems in their personal, social, and professional path. My vision is to help individuals and families establish trust to help reunite and keep families together. My counseling style is warm, understanding and meeting individuals where they are at in their journey of life. It can be challenging for anyone to seek assistance or help. I want to provide a warm and inviting environment to normalize the experience for individuals or families. My therapeutic approach is to provide Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-Focused Therapy techniques which best cater to the individual or families needs. I believe not every individual responds to the same therapy techniques as we are all unique and different. I will implement approriate therapeutic approaches and treatment plans to help you get back on your road to success. I look forward to working with you and thank you for allowing me to be apart of your healing journey.

I am Norene Vello, I am a licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Ohio. I received my Masters in Pastoral Clinical Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio and have been practicing 19 years. Life is a journey and at certain points, we all need guidance and direction to navigate the bumps and roadblocks along the way. We need fellow travelers to come alongside, to be present, to listen, guide and direct without judgement, criticism, or condemnation. If you allow me, I would like to be that person. I have collaborated with people ages 6-82 working to better understand themselves and make peace with their struggles using Cognitive and Achievement assessments, Mindfulness breathing exercises, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I have participated in and co-facilitated small women's groups for 18 years using Biblical principles, Spiritual Mindfulness, meditation, prayer, journaling, art, nature, music, CBT, Positive Therapy and Psychotherapy. These groups have addressed issues of depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, abuse, and self-destructive behavior patterns. My focus in Psychotherapy includes the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual aspects of self because when one part hurts all parts hurt. We are spiritual beings with a need to belong, loved, accepted, and have meaning and purpose to maintain and develop a sense of well-being which, starts in childhood and continues throughout life. My goals in every session are safety, peace, well-being, health, contentment, healing and wholeness in God. I welcome the privilege of walking with you and alongside you if you choose to invite me.

11 years of experience as a therapist

I am licensed therapist in the state of Ohio with 11 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients cope with addiction use disorders both in an in-patient and out-patient setting, work through trauma and abuse, increase motivation, self esteem and confidence, and gain skills needed to cope with depression and anxiety. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I offer a solutions focused environment. I understand that when people come to me for help, they are looking to improve their lives in some way and I am here to help them do that. I believe that in order to have a successful therapist/client relationship the client must be met with empathy, compassion and the safety that it takes to open up and work through things together. A little bit about myself: I am a wife and a mother of two. I have two dogs as well so I guess you could say that I am a mother of four. We enjoy being outside; walking, camping, adventuring. In my spare times I enjoy sitting outside by myself and drinking my coffee. I developed a passion for helping others while starting college and going through my own challenges of anxiety and depression. It can be difficult to accept sometimes that life does not always go as planned. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Please note that I build my schedule around the needs of my clients to the best of my ability. Do not get discouraged if my schedule does not look like it will work for you. Please reach out and I will do my best to adjust my schedule. I open evening sessions on an as needed basis.

Hello! My name is Jan Ricks and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida and a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio. I recently moved back to Florida from Northern Kentucky where I lived, while I taught for 15 years in the School of Social Work at the University of Cincinnati. I retired as an Emeritus Professor and am now focused on providing therapy. I have been a Professional Social Worker for over 30 years, and I also have over 10 years of professional therapy work experience. I have experience working with many different populations including individuals and families, the elderly, and the LGBTQ+ community including Transgender, Intersex, and other gender variant people. I have worked with people experiencing life changes, grief and loss, women's issues, and many other life challenges. I have traveled to many places in the State of Ohio, conducting workshops for the employees of the State who required recertification. I also conducted workshops and classes for private agencies providing education about Transgender, Gay, Lesbian and Intersex communities. I recently taught at the University of Central Florida as an Online instructor in the School of Social Work as well as teaching in the classroom setting. After leaving the University of Central Florida I began working as a therapist at BetterHelp. I truly enjoy my work and have found online therapy is very effective offering many opportunities that are not available in an office setting. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the power of change, and I also believe that people have many strengths that will help in overcoming things that are challenging. I utilize Cognitive-Behavior therapy as well as other therapeutic models to help create change in peoples' lives. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage and I admire that. I am here to support you in that process, and I look forward to working with you!

It is also possible to do combinations of some of the above-listed therapy types, if you would prefer. If you are familiar with the different therapy types and have a preference, please let me know which type or combinations you would prefer. If you are not familiar with the types but would like a brief explanation of one or more of the above, let me know and I can send you that information, also.

13 years of experience as a therapist

It is my pleasure to introduce myself to you as you explore provider and service options. My name is Annie Bennett and I am a Ohio licensed clinical social worker and supervisor. I received my master’s degree from the University of KY and then completed two years of conjoint marital and family therapy training. Although I have spent time in academia teaching in the social work graduate department at the University of KY, most of my experience over the past thirty plus years has been in the field of addiction, primarily working with women. Of course, this experience encompasses mental/emotional health and partner/family issues. For ten years I worked in an alcohol and other drug long-term residential treatment program where women could bring their children 12 years of age and younger. My therapy style would be a combination of cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and solution focused. I have found it important to meet clients where they are and help them work toward where they want to be. I believe in transformation, which is why I am in this field. I made major life changes myself over thirty years ago with the help of therapy and support from my environment. It is work and it is not easy, but most of the time it is well worth the effort. The important thing to know is that we do not have to be alone with our problems. I am working on a part-time basis but can usually respond within a couple of days to requests. My online schedule is posted. These sessions are 45 minutes, and the frequency of our visits will be determined by the progress you feel you are making in our sessions. I generally check messages everyday Monday through Thursday and respond as quickly as I can. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/personal responsibilities. Please remember that BetterHelp is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away! Working with others and seeing them make progress gives me great satisfaction. Having spent time on a sailboat I like the following metaphor: “You can’t change the winds, but you can adjust your sails”. I look forward to helping you achieve the quality of life you desire and deserve.

How to find counseling in Greenwich

Finding the best therapist close by in Greenwich can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Greenwich that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Greenwich. 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 Greenwich, 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 Greenwich region and in the state of Ohio. 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 Greenwich 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.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Greenwich area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Greenwich, elsewhere in Huron, or in the greater state of Ohio.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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 Greenwich, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Greenwich 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. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Greenwich helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Greenwich 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.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

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 Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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.

Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 44837 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 Greenwich 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 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 Greenwich.

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 from a therapist. A Greenwich 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 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 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 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 Greenwich, 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.

Greenwich 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.
