13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! My name is Bobbi Kelsey and I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in Michigan and in Oklahoma. I graduated from the University of Buffalo in 2011 and have approximately 12 years of diverse experience. I have worked with a wide variety of clients and concerns including depression, anxiety, healing from trauma/PTSD, adjustment to life transitions, grief/loss, sexual issues, and pregnancy, prenatal, and postpartum care. I know one of the most crucial and oftentimes challenging parts of the therapeutic process is taking the first steps to reach out and make the first appointment. I recognize the importance of finding the right fit between client and therapist, and as such, I offer a warm, flexible, and accepting client-centered approach to treatment. I will often utilize several different treatment modalities to best fit your individual needs and goals. My educational and professional background is trauma informed and I have been trained in EMDR for over 5 years. If you are ready to take the first steps toward meaningful change in your life and feel like I would be a good fit for a therapist to walk that journey with you, then I look forward to hearing from and working with you.

Imagine going to an amusement park and seeing all the joy and happiness around you but not being able to enjoy it yourself. You can smell the tantalizing smells and hear the contagious laughter. You long for the freedom to interact with those around you or at least be able to smile and mean it, yet there's something blocking that freedom. What is it? Is it depression? Is it severe anxiety? Is it overwhelming grief? Is it guilt and shame that hangs on you like an old worn out coat? Is it consuming fear that won't allow you to step into who you truly are and keeps you bound behind a frail representation of You. What can you do when your perception is woven with lies, fear, brokenness and pain? Is there a way to break free of your pain, fear, and beliefs that you are nothing more than your behaviors or nothing more than your brokenness? ABSOLUTELY! You have so much to offer and so much to give! It may be underneath some depression, or some anxiety, or some guilt and shame, or possibly some fear but I believe there is HOPE and there is FREEDOM for you! Some of us have went through tremendous pain, some have experienced immense trauma, and some just have feelings that seem to be uncontrollable and we may not even know why. I believe we are in this together and finding someone that we can open up to and relate to can be an incredible healing experience for both people. I use a faith based approach with those that are open to that form of therapy. If you prefer a different modality then I use cognitive behavioral therapy as an approach to counseling. I am very much looking forward to meeting you and beginning a counseling relationship where we can both grow and learn from each other.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Blanchard 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 Blanchard due to a higher cost of living.

While many psychologists in Blanchard 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 Blanchard?

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

Blanchard 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 Blanchard 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 Blanchard 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. 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 73010 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 Blanchard counselor?

Before seeing your Blanchard 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 Blanchard.

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 Blanchard 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 Blanchard 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 Blanchard, 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.

Blanchard 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.
