I am a licensed professional counselor with experience working with adults, teenagers, and children.

Hello! I am an enthusiastic, licensed professional counselor in Oklahoma, whose worked in mental health for more than 5 years. My experiences include working with diverse individuals across the lifespan and on a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns such as, depression and anxiety, grief/loss, work and career issues, trauma, and beyond.

My style to counseling is laid back and warm; one that is non-judgmental and one that meets you where you are. I work to create a space where you feel heard and experience unconditional, positive regard and genuineness. My approach is an application of techniques from a variety of theoretical perspectives to aid you in reaching your goals. Whether you are feeling overwhelmed and not yourself and experiencing symptoms of anxiety/depression, unhappy in your career, or just struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy, you are not alone and being right here, right now is a great first step to having the resolve you desire. I am passionate about helping others on their journey to a more fulfilled, healthy and whole self.

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! My name is Carly and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. I received a master's degree in counseling with a concentration in trauma, abuse and deprivation from Ottawa University. I have worked with individuals and families to help them overcome the impact of stressful or traumatic experiences. I believe that people deserve the chance to heal and move past negative experiences. I work from a trauma informed perspective to help empower people of all ages to be able to pursue their personal life goals. I work to help people understand how the brain and body work so that they are able to take more control over their lives and experiences, not just now, but also in the future. I like to combine empathy and logic when working with people. I view the role of a counselor to be a guide to help people through how to ask the right questions so that they are able to find the answers that they really need to get the outcomes that they really want. People are unique and the answer for each person will be different even when facing similar challenges. Counseling can be the process of going through a current challenge and learning how to face future challenges as well.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Wanette region and in the state of Oklahoma. 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 Wanette 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 Wanette 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 Wanette 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 Wanette due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Wanette 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 Wanette?

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

Wanette 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 Wanette 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 Wanette 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.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 74878 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Wanette 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 Wanette.

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 Wanette 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 Wanette 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 Wanette, 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.

Wanette 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.
