My name is Froogh Khatibloo and I am a Licensed professional Clinical Counselor with over 20-years of experience providing psychotherapy/counseling, harm reduction services for adolescents and adults in State of Ohio and I am happy to share the wealth of knowledge I have gained during my decades in community mental health. I am currently listed as network providers of multiple health insurance company panels as well as EAP plans, Medicare, Medicaid, and Bureau of Workers Compensations. I offer therapy for individuals or couples that are experiencing life transition and enjoy the challenge of working with wide range of people and their concerns. I do however, have some specific interest and areas of expertise. I am trained in and practiced from harm reduction perspective, meeting people where they are at their struggle with alcohol and substance abuse concerns and helping them set their goals for change. I blend cognitive behavioral technique, interpersonal therapy, and mindfulness practice to address depression, anxiety, and mood disorders with a exploitation of the underlying cause of distress. I prioritize creating safe spaces where survivors access their natural resilience promote healing to recover from trauma and loss. I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most and make desired changes in their lives to change their habit and setting their goals. I help people with employment and career consultation to recover from job loss, change careers, deal with workplace, apply for disability, and address creative blocks. I provide an accepting space for discovery in which people can explore their identity by learning who they are, where they are going, and who they want to be. I teach interpersonal skills and copying tools to help people to learn anger management and conflict resolution, so that they can communicate assertively and improve their relationships. I welcome everybody and I am particularly interested in inviting those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of LGBT communities, people wanting to talk about size acceptance, people of color, and members of marginalized groups. Additionally, I am able to provide clinical supervision for unlicensed mental health professionals, graduate students, and consultation for peers seeking additional assistance.

The face of someone who looks for support-looks like mine. Sometimes it's struggling with anxiety or depression. Maybe diabetes and the toll the healthy management takes on your life. It could also look like a young adult feeling stuck with so many opportunities in the world. It could look like someone who has lost their job or home and turned to Alcohol or Gambling to ease the pain. Or someone who just can't shake things they may or may not label as TRAUMA in their lives. More important than any of these situations, is the question: How do we regain CONTROL over Happiness and OUR own lives? I believe in taking a holistic and collaborative approach. This means we work together, as a team to improve your whole life-not just your mental or emotional health. There are multiple ways we can go about finding this answer, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EFT, EMDR, Addiction models, Mindfulness-based modalities, Motivational Interviewing and, more. I have been supporting individuals just like you for over 14 years. I am committed to helping people learn how to live their BEST lives! My practice focuses on targeting Anything that stands in your way of functioning as your Best self!

Hi! My name is Lorraine Hanson, but most people call me Lori. I am an experienced counselor. As a lifelong Ohioan, I have lived and worked in rural, inner-city, small town, and suburban areas from the Ohio River to Lake Erie. I have been a counselor for nearly 20 years, and am currently a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. Over the years, my work as a counselor/psychotherapist has allowed me the privilege of working with wonderfully diverse people who wanted to grow and improve personally, but ran into a wide variety of challenges and concerns. I specialize in helping people create happier, more satisfying lives. Over the years, I have studied all therapy traditions and have observed which ones are most effective. My approach begins with a client-centered belief system where I respect you unconditionally as the expert on your own life. I then offer you the opportunity to learn skills and strategies that will last a life time! These will empower you to: (1) solve problems, (2) manage symptoms (such as anxiety), (3) overcome obstacles to improve functioning or performance, and (4) increase happiness and life satisfaction. All this is possible if you put your mind to it! While this platform is not for those in crisis, we can certainly examine difficult life events of the past (distant or recent) in order to move forward. I use my specialized training in trauma-focused therapy to assist people in examining and processing traumatic or tragic events. Persons who have suffered as victims of crime, serious accidents or natural or man-made disasters often need help to recover. I also help people who are suffering from compassion fatigue or burnout including first responders, medical/mental health professionals, professional carers and family caregivers including Moms. Family members and friends of a person with Traumatic Brain Injury often need support, too. I meet all clients with compassion, good humor, respect and hope, infusing therapy with elements of Positive Psychology and Mindfulness. As an experienced counselor, I have come to understand that you have the ability to heal, grow, move forward and thrive. All you have to do is put your MIND to it!

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 Mayfield, 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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Mayfield or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield, 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 44143 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield 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 Mayfield, 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.

Mayfield 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.
