30 years of experience as a therapist

Hi, I am a practicing Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 20 years and have over 30 years working in the mental health field. My experience ranges from working on inpatient psychiatric units and in crisis counseling programs, to providing individual and family therapy. My therapeutic approach is always person centered, strengths based and goal oriented. Whether you are having a crisis in your life, have suffered a loss, are adjusting to changing situations in your life, or are just wanting to be happier and feel better about yourself, I can help you. I have a passion for helping the LBGTQ community, be that helping someone through the coming out process, improve family relationships and develop healthy confidence and self-esteem in a culture that is still sometimes condemning and unsupportive. I like to help family members of LGBTQ folks better understand and improve ways of showing loving support and overcoming any obstacles to being supportive. Another population that I have a passion for helping is Highly Sensitive People. Many people get diagnosed with major mental illnesses due to their symptoms of having difficulty coping with a stressful and chaotic world. Highly Sensitive people, and introverts, are often misunderstood and criticized for being themselves and end up feeling like something is wrong with them, when, in fact, they may just have traits that need to be understood, honored and respected. Our culture tends to value extroversion and toughness, and yet sensitives and introverts are some of the most creative, artistic, kind and empathetic people on the planet. Sensitivity and introversion are not problems or things to change, explain or defend. They are wonderful traits that you can understand better and therefore develop greater confidence and ways of communicating your needs and feelings. If you wonder if you are a Highly Hi Sensitive person, Google search Highly Sensitive Person self test and check out Elaine Aron’s work online. I also enjoy and have experience working with Autism Spectrum folks. I like to help people develop deeper insights and understanding of their unique personality, and using such insight to improve communication, relationships and life choices. I frequently work with people on knowing and understanding their personality typology (based on Carl Jung’s work and Myers Briggs test) and will link you to free online tests to get the information you need to better understand yourself and how you fit with other personality types. This kind of insight therapy will help you throughout your life rather than just focusing on addressing the issues of today. If you can relate to any of this information, I may be a great therapy fit for you and would love to work with you. -Julie

26 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from the University of Colorado in Denver in 1995 with a master’s degree in counseling psychology/counseling education. Since then, I have amassed 26 years of experience seeing clients in a variety of settings. I have worked with high school students on their personal and professional development. At universities, I led workshops for non-traditional (older) students. I have developed teambuilding workshops for companies and provided career counseling for individuals. I have been invited to present personality type workshops to various community groups. I have worked for agencies and in private practice. More recently, I have worked with client’s in their homes, addressing the gamut of personal issues a person can face: depression, anxiety, grief/loss, anger issues, premarital/marital issues, suicide, addictions in the family, low self-esteem, family of origin issues, and others. I am currently licensed in the state of Oklahoma Early in my education, I was encouraged to develop my own style of counseling, and that is what I have done. I have many different theoretical techniques in my “counseling toolbox”: cognitive/thought oriented, behavioral oriented, past/present/and future oriented. I steer clear of typical “psychobabble,” but I am fond of a good analogy. I like to use humor, and I believe that we all can laugh at ourselves if we feel secure enough. Knowing that we are loved in spite of (or maybe even because of) our flaws can be quite encouraging. I will accept you, and your issues, because I know I have my share. In fact, I was once told that the difference between a therapist and a client is that a therapist is further along in sorting out their issues. The counseling setting for me can be similar to the old joke where a man loses his wallet on a dark street. Another man sees the first one searching around under a streetlight and asks if he can be of assistance. The first man explains that he has lost his wallet and would welcome any assistance. The two men comb the area thoroughly, looking everywhere to no avail. Finally the second man says to the first, “Are you sure you lost it here?” To which the first man replies, “No, I lost it down in that dark alley.” The second man says, “Well, Why are we looking here?!” The first man says, “Because the light is better here.” A good therapist can be a flashlight - helping you explore the darker areas of your life. But, don’t worry, we won’t go until you are ready. I look forward to searching with you.

My name is Dr. Stephen W. Baker M.A. MFA. Ed.D. LPC, and I am glad to help you as your potential Therapist! Understanding that our feelings are ours alone, we sometimes require an objective ear to speak to when processing emotional concerns. As a licensed professional counselor, I value open talk-therapy and evaluate and discuss client’s emotions as they see appropriate in the open counseling environment. As a practitioner, I believe that simply needing a calming environment to vent frustrations and or process feelings can be paramount to finding a personal sense of balance and wellness. During the therapy process, emphasis is given to inner reflection, understanding of personal-strengths, supportive behavioral change, and positivity- awareness for anyone seeking emotional relief from life's complexities. I generally work with teenage and adult populations and have experience working with the following client concerns: depression, general anxiety, identity issues/support, school-performance concerns, parent-child relationship issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, injury concerns, career transitions, veteran issues/support, relationship issues, marital concerns, couples counseling, and substance abuse impairment. Same day appointments and weekend appointments are available in addition to my normal week day schedule! Welcome to Therapy! SB

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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

Therapists in Terral, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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

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

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

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 from a therapist. A Terral 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 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 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 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 Terral, 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?

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.
