Welcome to my profile! I am glad you are here. My name is Dr. Patrick McCain. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor in Oklahoma. I have been in the field for 16yrs. I have experience in helping with a multitude of disorders. My experience underlies success with treating Anxiety/Depression, PTSD, Bi-Polar, and Personality Disorders such as Borderline Personality Disorder, Children's Disorders such as Reactive Attachment Disorder, Oppositional Defiance, and Emotional Disturbances. I have learned to take a variety of approaches to help clients find healing, growth, and desired change. My person-centered approach maintains the utmost positive regard for you and your needs. My cognitive approach will help challenge and change depression or anxiety thinking. My training as a Trauma-Focused therapist will help in understanding symptomology, identify triggers, and reduce sensitivity to events that may be a reminder of past trauma. Substance abuse is another specialty. In treating substance use therapists need to be careful not to take a singleness approach. We all experience different believes and respond differently to addiction. Therefore, I use a variety of approaches that help clients maintain a life without the obsession of substances. I take pride in my journey to help others. The road is long but rewarding. If you are interested in facing the challenge of change than I will be dedicated to facilitating. I believe you will be the expert in the process. I will help you build on your strengths and work with you to find solutions in your time of stress. I will respect your decisions and maintain a non-judgmental attitude. Let me help you find your own solutions and way of coping with life struggles. I find the counseling process to be an exciting process. I will be enthusiastic to build a professional and counseling relationship. This process should not be taken lightly. It should be respected, as the decision to get counseling is not an easy one. If you are here and have chosen to start the journey of growth then congratulations! Please let me know if I can help.

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 Medford 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.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Medford 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 Medford 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 Medford 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 Medford 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 Medford?

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

Medford 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 Medford 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 Medford 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.

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

Before seeing your Medford 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 Medford.

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 Medford 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 Medford 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 Medford, 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.

Medford 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.
