Greetings! My name is Allison and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the state of Georgia and a Licensed Independent Social Worker for the state of Ohio. I have obtained a bachelors degree in Social Work from Johnson C. Smith University, a masters degree in social work from Georgia State University and a masters degree in family therapy from Mercer University. I have over 6 years of clinical experience in providing trauma-informed therapy to individuals, couples, and families with a variety of psychiatric, relational, and situational needs and concerns which include grief and loss, issues with depression and anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma. I also have experience working with individuals and couples who are a part of the LGBTQ community. My therapeutic style consists of meeting and approaching people where they are in their varying situations. I have an open-minded, non-judgmental approach to therapy in which I work to view issues and concerns from a non-pathologizing standpoint. I mainly center around systemic and strengthening based therapies that are drawn from Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapies. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, exercising, traveling, watching "reality television", and spending time with friends and family. Life changes and transitions happen to all of us. Sometimes, we need someone to talk with to help better understand, process, and cope with things that are beyond our control. It is my hope that as you move through these changes and experiences, you will consider working with someone who is devoted to understanding what makes you uniquely YOU.

17 years of experience

As a Clinical Psychologist, I have training in a wide range of therapeutic techniques. During my original training I held a dual specialization in Health Psychology (aka Medical Psychology) and adult psychotherapy. I have done rotations working in community mental health centers, college counseling centers, medical practices, and outpatient clinics. I have 17 years of experience working with individuals with a variety of concerns ranging from relationship difficulties to severe depression and anxiety disorders (and almost everything in between). I have a special affinity for working with neurodivergent individuals and have experience with a variety of interventions for ADHD in adults of all ages. I have worked to help many people through major life transitions, to develop coping skills to manage stress, to develop self-awareness, and to adjust thoughts and perceptions to support emotion regulation and overall wellbeing. For the past 12 years I have also taught college-level psychology courses on various topics, including interpersonal relationships; stress, coping, and adjustment; positive psychology; neuroscience; and health psychology. As a result, my therapy interventions are based in research findings that support their use; combined with my own experiences with clients over the years. I view the whole person - including neurological and biological processes, social, and cultural factors - in determining what approaches may work best. My typical focus is on short-term treatment modalities. I work from primarily cognitive-behavioral perspective, but implement techniques from many approaches to fit the individual and their needs. I believe that each person is unique and therapy cannot take a one-size fits all approach. It is important to note that I do not have training in specific methods for treating trauma (such as EMDR) and will often decline to treat acute traumatic reactions in a virtual setting. In addition, my schedule sometimes fluctuates from week to week and I cannot guarantee that the same appointment times will be available each week. I do make certain there are enough appointment times available for my current clients, however times and days may be variable.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Groveport 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 Groveport 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 Groveport 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 Groveport, 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 Groveport 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 Groveport helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Groveport 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 Groveport 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 Groveport 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 43125 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 Groveport 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 Groveport 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 Groveport, 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.

Groveport 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.
