In my practice, I understand that what may initially seem scary and daunting can become familiar territory when you embark on a journey of self-discovery.

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Work with me! Welcome to Betterhelp. My name is Ajibola Harris. Just refer to me as "ABBY". I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Oklahoma, Texas and Nevada. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2007 and obtained a Master of Human Relations degree (MHR). In 2010, I obtained my first license to practice as a Licensed Professional counselor (LPC) in Oklahoma and started my career that same year. I worked with four counseling agencies over the course of eight years before relocating to Texas. The in-person therapy sessions were held at clients' homes, agency offices and schools. In 2021, I became licensed to practice in Texas and had my first experience in online counseling which I really love since I can work from the comfort of my home. In 2023, I obtained another license to practice in Nevada. I have experience working with a wide array of clients from different cultural backgrounds dealing with various life challenges. I have had many years of fulfilling practice. I am experienced in many counseling techniques and I can combine such techniques based on a client's present concerns and goals. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Technique (CBT) which involves a collaboration with clients to jointly come up with the best goals and solutions to alleviate their symptoms for a better quality of life. This technique focuses on changing how we think in a way that changes our emotions and behaviors. I also utilize Client-Centered Therapy that regards clients as experts on their lives and thus determine the direction and depth of therapy. I am passionate about my job as a therapist and strive to establish a therapeutic relationship with clients that fosters a strong rapport, trust, comfortable environment, unconditional positive regard, respect, dignity and compassion. As a non-judgmental and open-minded listener, I approach the therapeutic relationship with acute sensitivity to multi/cross-cultural factors. I believe that having a good connection with my clients helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcome. My goal as a Counselor is to restore hope to those who have lost it and empower clients to develop healthy coping skills to enjoy life fully. I applaud your courage to seek help and I intend to support and work with you to achieve a more fulfilling life. I have many years of experience in the following issues: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger management, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, LGBTQ issues, Addictions, Divorce & separation, Mood disorders, Unresolved grief issues, Self-esteem, Parenting, Trauma and abuse, Abandonment and loneliness, Codependency, PTSD, Phobias, OCD, ADHD, Women issues, Clinical Approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Family Systems Theory. I look forward to working with you.

I have been providing counseling for about 25 years. I worked my first 10 years with the elderly population. For the past 15 years I have worked with all age ranges in a variety of areas.

I also use EFIT (Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy) to assist with trauma. My clients are a critical part of my treatment plan development as my desire is to assist in their success - effectively working myself out of their lives. They learn the coping skills rather than dependence on a person to go from one crisis to the next.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Addington 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 Addington 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 Addington 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 therapists: $100-300

While many psychologists in Addington may not take health insurance, some in the state of Oklahoma may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

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

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

Addington 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 Addington 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 Addington 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 OK, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 73520 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Addington counselor?

Before seeing your Addington 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 Addington.

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 Addington 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 Addington 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 Addington, Oklahoma 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.

Addington 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.
