8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I’ve worked with hundreds of people to help them recover from traumatic experiences, improve their personal relationships and build healthy habits to transform their lives for the better. I've worked with a variety of clients with a wide range of challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, identity issues, and more. I don't have a specialty, but I especially enjoy working with young adults working to overcome their difficult past experiences while building a new life for themselves. Regardless of your age or experience, therapy can help you discover your true self and empower you to create lasting change in your life. I’m trained in a variety of person-centered therapy models -- I most enjoy using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My mindfulness-based approach is built on my commitment to building strong therapeutic relationships with my clients while providing a safe space for self-exploration to promote healing and growth. My passion for mental health stems from my personal experience with it, as well as my love of learning about and understanding people and the complex systems within which they live. I have personally overcome some mental health challenges over the course of my lifetime, so I understand how overwhelming and frustrating it can be to feel like you're in a battle with yourself and your environment. The process for getting help can be overwhelming, and it can feel so frustrating and lonely. However, I also know from experience how much life can change for the better when you find support and take steps towards taking care of yourself!

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.

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 meet my clients where they are, using Client Centered focus, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, including Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (cause & effect) of behaviors. 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.

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

Before seeing your Healdton 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 Healdton.

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 Healdton 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 Healdton counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Healdton, 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.

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.
