Hey there! My name is Heath I appreciate your courage to seek out help. I have enjoyed working in the mental health field for 9 years now and I'm licensed in the State of Ohio. I have experience with children, adolescents, and adults from all backgrounds. I have experience working with an array of issues including depression, anxiety, anger control, and co-occurring disorders (mental health and substance use). I also have some experience working with trauma and grief and loss. My approach is very person centered, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused. I have a genuine personality, a nonjudgmental attitude, and a friendly demeanor. I believe the most important factor is the client-counselor relationship. It is within this relationship that a person can begin to heal, find hope, and be encouraged through the change process. If you are ready to receive help I am happy to be supportive and empower you through the process.

Sometimes the hardest part is taking the first step to reach out and ask for help. You have made that first step to BetterHelp and I'm glad to hear from you. My name is Annette Humberson and I've been a Social Work Counselor within that time for the last 15 yrs. My work has focused on young adults starting at age 21, to all people through the life span to those in their 90's. and from all different backgrounds. Every person has their own story and experience, but my compassion, acceptance, and interest to work with each person never changes. My approach starts with what is called Motivational Interviewing which means that I listen to who you are, what you are struggling with, and how you want your life to be different moving forward. I'm listening to understand what matters to you, what motivates you, and where it might be important for you to start. I recognize that some people are very easily able to express themselves and how they feel, while others may struggle and need to work at a slower pace - whatever style fits who you are is how we will work. It's important for you to feel safe and supported regardless of your communication style. A second approach I use to help is called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This is the connection between the thoughts in your head, heart, and actions. Sometimes it can feel like the harder we try, the worse it feels - but we can't figure out why we feel so helpless or what is getting in our way. CBT can identify our unhelpful thoughts and provide the structure to give you a sense of direction and hope while you work toward the goals you have identified. It may feel uneasy to experience the emotions of change as we figure out what works for you. Dialectical Behavior Therapy, including mindfulness, is another approach I use to help you identify emotional reactions and teach you to feel less vulnerable to them. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, and life changes; with the majority of my experience in relation to coping with life grief and losses; sudden medical conditions or illness; caregiver fatigue & adjustment; positive traumatic growth; end of life concerns for clients and families, as well as substance abuse & addiction and professional challenges. My first session needs to be by live video, per my state's licensing laws, but after that we can have sessions via live video or phone. I'm looking forward to helping you identify your goals and improve the quality of your life!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed New Bremen 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 New Bremen 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 New Bremen 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 New Bremen, 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?

You can also try a New Bremen 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 New Bremen 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a New Bremen 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 New Bremen 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 New Bremen, 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.

New Bremen 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.
