My desire is to provide holistic therapy for individuals who would like to receive guidance and support within a non-judgmental client/counselor relationship. As a counselor, I have over 13 years of experience assisting individuals who are needing support due to various problems within the mental health field. My main strength and specialty as a counselor is providing Christ-centered care through faith based counseling and intercessory prayer. Some of my credentials include a Master of Arts in Education (clinical counseling) from an accredited graduate school and I am currently licensed in the state of Ohio to provide counseling independently as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor or LPCC. My intention on this platform is not to provide formal clinical diagnostic services or procedures but to provide informal individual listening, perspective, and support for whatever concern or concerns that you may have within this season of your life. One of my goals is to make sure that you feel comfortable within the client/counselor relationship. I believe this can be accomplished by me modeling authenticity and acceptance while actively listening to you and your concerns. Common concerns that are addressed in my counseling sessions include anxiety, depression, low self esteem or self worth, search for meaning and purpose, spiritual/faith issues, stress, men's issues, addiction, loneliness, grief/loss, trauma, relationship problems, and many more. I look forward to hearing from you!

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies from The Ohio State University and a Master of Social Work from The Ohio State University. For over 15 years, I have served and supported people of all ages. My areas of focus have been people facing difficult transitions such as becoming a parent, parenting a child with a developmental disability, starting college or a new job, getting diagnosed with a serious and/or chronic medical condition, divorce, or loss of a loved one. I utilize a non-judgmental and relaxed approach to help my clients feel safe and at ease. I also utilize a strengths-based approach as I believe each person has their own strengths and talents that can be used help make the changes they want to see. The client-clinician relationship should be collaborative. While I may have years of experience, you are the expert in your needs and your story. You are worthy of dignity, respect, and feeling however you want to feel. You matter! I look forward to working with you!

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello, I hold a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling and have been working as a counselor since 2007, providing individual counseling, assessment of mental and emotional disorders, crisis intervention and referral assistance as well as mental health programming, community outreach, advocacy, and education. I hold an independent Professional Clinical Counselor license with supervisory designation (LPCC-S) from the State of Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, Marriage and Family Therapist Board. I believe that counseling is a collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential helping relationship which helps clients better understand themselves and the world around them. Open and honest discussions of feelings, behaviors, relationships, life experiences, and circumstances in a non-judgmental, safe, confidential environment enables individuals to grow towards greater freedom in making healthy choices and taking appropriate actions for more satisfying relationships, self-concept, and progress toward life goals. I utilize a variety of treatment approaches in therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Existential Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, and Brief Therapy. I have assisted clients with a wide range of mental health issues, such as, depression, anxiety, grief/loss, adjustment, life transitions, and exploration of self (related to gender, sexuality, religion, etc.) to name a few. My goal is to provide a genuine therapeutic relationship and help you feel heard and respected, regardless of the issue or struggle you are facing. I work with clients to help identify strengths, locate support resources, and begin a process of change and growth. I will respect your values, choices, and lifestyle and will see you as an individual with your own unique strengths and limitations. It takes courage to seek advice, help, and/or support in times of struggle. Change can be scary but necessary and the first step is often the scariest. There is power and strength in taking control and choosing to make a change for the better. I am honored to be considered as a resource on your journey. Per Ohio State law ( http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/4757-5-13v1 12) we will need to schedule a video session to verify identity prior to starting services. Once we have our first video-chat, verify identity, and review consent we can start working together using any of the platforms you prefer: messaging, live chat, phone, or video sessions. I recommend reviewing several profiles of various providers before making your choice. It is important to your success that you find a therapist you feel comfortable working with and is a good fit for your needs.

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 Logan, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Logan 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 Logan 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Logan 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 Logan 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 Logan 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Logan 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 Logan 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 Logan 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.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 43138 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 Logan counselor?

Before seeing your Logan 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 Logan.

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 Logan 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 Logan 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 Logan, 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.

Logan 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.
