Hello! My name is Carly and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. I received a master's degree in counseling with a concentration in trauma, abuse and deprivation from Ottawa University. I have worked with individuals and families to help them overcome the impact of stressful or traumatic experiences. I believe that people deserve the chance to heal and move past negative experiences. I work from a trauma informed perspective to help empower people of all ages to be able to pursue their personal life goals. I work to help people understand how the brain and body work so that they are able to take more control over their lives and experiences, not just now, but also in the future. I like to combine empathy and logic when working with people. I view the role of a counselor to be a guide to help people through how to ask the right questions so that they are able to find the answers that they really need to get the outcomes that they really want. People are unique and the answer for each person will be different even when facing similar challenges. Counseling can be the process of going through a current challenge and learning how to face future challenges as well.

I am a licensed psychotherapist in Colorado and Oklahoma with an emphasis on family and marital therapy. I have over 10 years of experience assisting others with their personal growth and expanding limited mindsets in a deliberate and conscious way. Throughout all of my sessions, I aim to create a safe, non-judgmental, and private space for clients to effectively and productively express their emotions. I specialize in breaking generational trauma/curses, inner childhood wounds, religious (including LDS) trauma, substance/drug abuse, anxiety, depression, creating healthy boundaries, toxic perfectionism, body positivity, limited beliefs, LGBTQ+ issues, couple's counseling, conflict resolution, and pornography addiction. I also deal with topics such as sex therapy, sexual dysfunction, sexual infidelity, and low libido. I have extensive background in evidenced-based therapies, such as narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoeducation, and mindfulness practice. I will tailor my approach towards the client based on the client's own preferences and needs in therapy. Throughout our sessions, I will help you formulate various coping strategies and goals to help you grow. If you ever feel that you are in need of urgent help or in a crisis, please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This platform currently does not have any emergency services available, so I want to ensure that you have the proper resources to get the help you need in the event of crisis. It takes an incredible amount of courage and awareness to reach out for help. My ultimate goal is to guide you in the direction of healing and personal growth; if you feel that you are ready, I will be here to unconditionally support and empower you every step of the way.

I am a licensed therapist (LCSW) in Oklahoma with 4 years of professional work experience. Before going back to school, I spent 17 years in an agency assisting individuals to meet their education and employment goals. Many of these individuals were experiencing a variety of challenges getting to work or maintaining a job due to past trauma, anxiety, depression, etc. At that time, I did not have the education, training or experience to assist individuals with these challenges. Five years ago, I started on a journey to obtain a Master’s degree as a licensed therapist. I focused my training toward trauma informed care as well as person centered care. My form of therapy consists of guidance and direction in the areas of life where excessive negative thinking patterns affect an individual’s self-actualization. Past trauma experiences often manifest in difficult relationships today. Anxiety and depression can make anyone’s life difficult. I employ various therapy techniques such as CBT, DBT, grief models, and EMDR, to name a few. I assist clients in their search for the most effective technique to improve their quality of life. My experience includes assisting clients who have or are experiencing trauma, abuse, stress, depression, relationship issues, and/or anxiety. I assist clients coping with grief, loss, motivation, self-esteem, and self-confidence. I work with my clients to create an open and honest dialogue where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear, judgment or criticism. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Cole. 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 Cole, 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. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Cole or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Cole 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 Cole 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 Cole 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Cole, Oklahoma 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?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Cole above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Cole helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Cole therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Cole 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 Cole 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 OK, providers 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 73093 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Cole 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.
