10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello all! My name is Nakeisha McGee and I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have been in the field of mental health and substance abuse treatment, in theory or in practice, since 2005. I have managed school and community based programming and provided services for individuals, children, teens, those who have experienced varying types of trauma and those suffering from varying addictions both in patient and outpatient care. I also counsel couples and have been trained in the Prepare and Enrichment assessment in which I served as an Enrichment Feedback Coach. I have utilized several different treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT, Rational Emotive Therapy. The one I use most for couples therapy is Intersubjective Therapy, in which the client is the broken relationship and is the focus of treatment. Generally speaking, I have a laid back approach to therapy where my goal is to build a working relationship with you to see issues from your point of view. This is one of the best ways to guide you to your own version of healing and eliminates me "telling you what to do." I look forward to working with and helping you along your journey to your next level of greatness. Let's change your world, one session at a time. :-) **Note: I am in the Central Standard Time Zone. Please observe**

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, my name is Wendie Clemens. I’ll start out with giving you some information on my history and experience, then I’ll move on to explaining my approach to therapy. I have a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family therapy and I’ve been a licensed therapist for 20 years; I’m licensed through the state of Oklahoma as a Licensed Professional Counselor and my license number is 3401. I’ve worked with several different populations, providing outpatient individual, family, and group therapy to adults, children, and adolescents; providing individual and family therapy to children and adolescents in the foster care system and their birth families, as well as providing supportive services to the foster families; and providing individual and group therapy for court-involved persons. I have experience working with clients who sought treatment for problems related to anxiety, depression, trauma, bipolar disorder, substance use, family conflict, difficult relationships, issues related to changes in life, and other severe and chronic mental health issues. Over the last few years, I’ve also had extensive experience providing services through virtual means such as iPad, computer, phone, etc. so this service platform is comfortable for me. For 15 years of my career as a licensed therapist, I worked in community mental health; the majority of my clients there not only struggled with severe, life-long mental health issues but also struggled with other issues such as isolation, poverty, lack of resources, and the stigma of living with a mental illness. Working in that setting could be extremely demanding but those years played a significant role in my growth as a therapist (and a person) and the experience of serving those clients, as well as having the honor of sharing their lives, was overall richly rewarding for me. In my view, the relationship that develops between a therapist and client is part of the healing process and I do my best to develop and maintain a positive, healthy relationship with clients. You’re the one looking for help, so I look to you to determine what we discuss in therapy sessions, what you’d like to accomplish in therapy, and how you’ll know you’ve finished therapy. My part is to help you sort things out so you can see problems more clearly, understand yourself better, and feel more comfortable in making decisions about your life. I’m also here to help you find and learn different tools you can use to accomplish that. With that being said, I also recognize there will be times I may need to give you a little push to discuss something you’ve been avoiding, to express thoughts or feelings that may be difficult for you, or even to revisit your past in order to work through issues that may still be affecting you. All of that requires trust and a willingness to be vulnerable on your part, which is why I tend to emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship. Even though I value our relationship, I’m also human and I realize that I may misinterpret something you say, misunderstand what you’re trying to communicate, or unintentionally offend you or hurt your feelings. I don’t plan on this happening, but if it does, please let me know!! (No need to worry about being too blunt or hurting my feelings – I need to know these things so your therapy is helpful and it will help me grow and be a better therapist.) Most things we’ll be able to work through and that will help me understand you better – it can also help you as misunderstandings and unintentional slights happen in all relationships and you can use bumps in our relationship as practice in working things out in the “real world.” Regarding the technical side of things, I use tools and techniques primarily from Cognitive-Behavioral based therapies, Person-Centered Therapy, and I incorporate mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation tools from Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I’ll also throw this out – if at any point in our work together you find that we’re just not relating, you’ve gone as far as you can with me, or I’m just not the right therapist for you, don’t hesitate to discuss this with me as it will be no problem for you to be matched with another therapist that may be a better fit for you. This is just a general introduction so you have some feel for who I am and how I approach therapy; there is more specific information about meetings, confidentiality, etc. contained in the Informed Consent in the member information from already provided by the platform.

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

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

Mustang 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 Mustang 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 Mustang 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.

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

Before seeing your Mustang 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 Mustang.

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 Mustang 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 Mustang 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 Mustang, 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.

Mustang 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.
