Many children in the United States have been orphaned or put up for adoption and this can cause unresolved mental health issues that need to be dealt with. While some will get counseling, many will not, and these children can end up with mental health issues as a result. 

The City of Sand Springs was started in 1911 by a wealthy man named Charles Page, who wanted to start a home for orphans and widows. He bought 160 acres to build a home for the women and children and then started a community around it. The home is still in operation today. The city also has some of the best mental health professionals who specialize in the mental health of children and teens.

Greetings! I am elated that you have found your way to my profile. This is an exciting time for you, and I applaud you for taking the first step (of many) in seeking the support that is needed to allow your journey to begin. You are stronger than most, because you have made a decision to get help, and I would be grateful to help you get to your goal. Let me introduce myself, and what I can offer in order to support you to the fullest. I am a career minded person, that believes that everyone has the uncanny ability to be better today then they were yesterday, and more room to improve themselves tomorrow. I love to laugh, and I love to be real with people. I have dedicated my career to the counseling field since 2001, and can openly say I have not one regret for the career path I chose – I often think that counseling chose me! I have a master’s degree in Community Counseling from Adams State University (2009) and a Doctorate degree in Clinical Counseling, with an emphasis in Neuropsychology from University of the Rockies (2013). I currently hold a license in Colorado as well as in Oklahoma as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been steadily refining my counseling skills in a multitude of settings since 2001. My experience draws from dedicating 12 years of counseling at an inpatient psychiatric hospital, while also working with active military, veterans, and their families. My most current professional clinical settings have been working within the Oklahoma and Colorado prison systems, as well as with the juvenile detention centers. I currently hold the position of Clinical Director, and this position gives me great pleasure as I have the opportunity to work directly with clients, as well as have the opportunity to help other counselors grow professionally and hone their skills. I have a great passion for supporting others and helping them build themselves up, in order to make positive life choices, and reflect a pay-it-forward attitude. I have had the pleasure of helping individuals on their journey heal from past abuse, discover their self-esteem, and grow to discover that they do have the confidence to live their lives fully. My therapeutic style is truly eclectic, and adjusts to meet the needs of the person requesting support. I truly subscribe to the ideology that one size does NOT fit all. And this is the beauty of being you, you are an individual and your sessions will be just as individualized as you are. To give a glimpse of what a session would look like, and to add some structure, I utilize a strength-based approach, closely followed by the Rogerian Therapy methodology, more commonly referred to as client-centered. You know you best, and I want for you to be comfortable in teaching me all that there is to know about you, so that we can help you reach your goals. I will be there to guide you, encourage you, possibly even challenge you if I feel you are unknowingly allowing obstacles to stand in your way. If this kind of therapeutic relationship sounds like it could work for you, then I welcome the opportunity, with open arms and an open mind, to join you on your journey of awakening, healing, and self-discovery. I hope to work with you soon! Bobbie Warren, PsyD, LPC

Work with me! Welcome to Betterhelp. My name is Ajibola Harris. Just refer to me as "ABBY". I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Oklahoma, Texas and Nevada. I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2007 and obtained a Master of Human Relations degree (MHR). In 2010, I obtained my first license to practice as a Licensed Professional counselor (LPC) in Oklahoma and started my career that same year. I worked with four counseling agencies over the course of eight years before relocating to Texas. The in-person therapy sessions were held at clients' homes, agency offices and schools. In 2021, I became licensed to practice in Texas and had my first experience in online counseling which I really love since I can work from the comfort of my home. In 2023, I obtained another license to practice in Nevada. I have experience working with a wide array of clients from different cultural backgrounds dealing with various life challenges. I have had many years of fulfilling practice. I am experienced in many counseling techniques and I can combine such techniques based on a client's present concerns and goals. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Technique (CBT) which involves a collaboration with clients to jointly come up with the best goals and solutions to alleviate their symptoms for a better quality of life. This technique focuses on changing how we think in a way that changes our emotions and behaviors. I also utilize Client-Centered Therapy that regards clients as experts on their lives and thus determine the direction and depth of therapy. I am passionate about my job as a therapist and strive to establish a therapeutic relationship with clients that fosters a strong rapport, trust, comfortable environment, unconditional positive regard, respect, dignity and compassion. As a non-judgmental and open-minded listener, I approach the therapeutic relationship with acute sensitivity to multi/cross-cultural factors. I believe that having a good connection with my clients helps facilitate effective counseling and provides the best outcome. My goal as a Counselor is to restore hope to those who have lost it and empower clients to develop healthy coping skills to enjoy life fully. I applaud your courage to seek help and I intend to support and work with you to achieve a more fulfilling life. I have many years of experience in the following issues: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Anger management, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, LGBTQ issues, Addictions, Divorce & separation, Mood disorders, Unresolved grief issues, Self-esteem, Parenting, Trauma and abuse, Abandonment and loneliness, Codependency, PTSD, Phobias, OCD, ADHD, Women issues, Clinical Approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Client-Centered Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Family Systems Theory. I look forward to working with you.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Sand Springs 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.

Sand Springs 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 Sand Springs 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 Sand Springs 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 74107 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 Sand Springs counselor?

Before seeing your Sand Springs 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 Sand Springs.

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 Sand Springs 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 Sand Springs 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 Sand Springs, 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.

Sand Springs 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.
