43 years of experience as a therapist

I am a highly experienced therapist licensed in Ohio with over 40 years of experience providing individual, couple, and family counseling across a wide spectrum of persons and life-style choices. Though having successfully treated a large variety of personal and relational problems over the years, my most common successes have been in helping persons solve their anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, grief and loss, of aging, or marital and other relationship problems. As I work to help free up the stuck places in people's lives, I draw from their own strengths especially but also my own strengths and experiences achieved over the course of my own 74 years, 53 years of marriage, and 43 years of post-Masters clinical training. I draw from my 1977 Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from The Ohio State University, as well as a 2002 Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree from United Theological Seminary. My specialty training over the years has been in Structural/Strategic Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Gerontology. My work is informed by a strong spiritual faith from a Christ-centered perspective. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy that begins with the present but utilizes past and present strengths to build toward your own preferred future. If you are ready to take the first steps toward a more satisfying life, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

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!

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Milledgeville 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 Milledgeville 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 Milledgeville 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 Milledgeville, 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 do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

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

Milledgeville therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Milledgeville 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 Milledgeville.

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 Milledgeville 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 Milledgeville, 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.

Milledgeville 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.
