20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) licensed in Oklahoma with 20+ years of experience working with children, adults and families. I've worked with those struggling with severe mental illness as well as those individuals who are struggling with issues including depression, anxiety, grief & loss, divorce, LGBT issues, parenting problems and serious and/or life threatening illness. My counseling style is client-focused ; I think it's very important to meet the client where they currently are in their journey and work from that point. I am very genuine in my day to day life and bring that trait to each session with the belief that in doing so, the client will feel more at ease with being honest as issues & challenges are being processed. I believe that everyone deserves respect and compassion as well as the opportunity to have added support when needed. My approach combines cognitive behavioral, client centered and rational-emotive counseling techniques. Your treatment plan and the direction of our sessions will be tailored to meet your individual needs. It's not easy asking for help - especially when life is presenting you with more than your share of challenges. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support you. I am accepting both international and Oklahoma clients!

I do not provide phone calls or video calls. What I do provide is text-only services. That means that a live text chat session is scheduled weekly for us to sit down and text together. I believe that human connection is the fundamental building block of therapy. Your comfort and providing a safe space for healing is my priority. I come from humble beginnings and have stayed close to those roots with my work in community mental health, mental health court, and residential addiction treatment. It is an honor and a privilege to do the work that I do. I have worked with diverse client needs, including addiction, anxiety, career concerns/aspirations, depression, relationships, and trauma. I have a primary therapeutic modality of Adlerian. We are social creatures so let’s connect and get you where you want to be! Therapy does not have to be all doom and gloom. It is about being comfortable getting uncomfortable but we will work through the uncomfortable together. If you have an emergency contact 911, 988 for the national crisis lifeline, or use the crisis text line by texting HOME to 741741.

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

For over 20 years I have been providing counseling services to the residents of Oklahoma. I received my bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Tulsa, went on to receive my Masters degree from Northeastern State University and then received my license as a Licensed Professional Counselor. My practice consists of counseling clients, supervising new counselors for their licensure and consulting with other counselors about their practice. Over the years I have employed a variety of therapeutic interventions for my clients ranging from Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Solution Focused Therapy. We all experience times in our life when we are unable to do those things that we want to, and our lives may become unmanageable and unfulfilling. These times may provoke feelings of anxiety and depression and may lead to substance use or other maladaptive and self-destructive behaviors and relationships. These emotions, behaviors and relationships can often overwhelm us and we experience a feeling of being stuck in our current situation with no way out. These difficult emotions may have been a part of us for so long that we do not realize there is a different way of living. If you are struggling with emotions, relationships, substance use or you find yourself repeating the same patterns, I would like the opportunity to work with you. After hearing from you about what you would like to change in your life, what you value and the strengths you will bring to therapy, I will work with you to determine the most effective plan to help you realize the life you desire.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Braman. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 Braman, 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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Braman region and in the state of Oklahoma. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Braman or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

While many psychologists in Braman 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. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Oklahoma you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Braman 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 Braman 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 Braman 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 74632 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 Braman counselor?

Before seeing your Braman 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 Braman.

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 Braman 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 Braman 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 Braman, 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.

Braman 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.
