12 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Janice Johnson, MA, LPC, and I have 12 plus years in the field of psychotherapy working with a wide range of clients. I hold a BS from Oregon State University in education as well as a Masters degree in counseling psychology. I specialize in sex abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship issues as well as family conflict. I use an eclectic approach in therapy using cognitive behavioral, solution focused, mindfulness and, Gottman approach in relationships. I have a passion to help people get thru difficult times in their lives whether It’s a transition or a traumatic event like a divorce or abuse. My goal is to always establish trust in the therapeutic environment so to best help clients to feel safe. In counseling, the best environment is one of caring and trust and I strive to provide both for my clients. Counseling can offer a fresh perspective on a situation. It is often hard to see the solution when you are right in the middle of a problem. I care about those impacted by sexual abuse as well as those who are dealing with depression and anxiety. In my practice, I will often explore unresolved family and other relational issues. I help my clients work through forgiveness and let go of any bitterness they might be holding on to. I like to help others become self-confident, insightful, and strong to face their situation to bring about healing and restoration. In my practice, I work with clients to establish their, “truths”, about who they are. Once this is established, then we have a foundation to work on instead of believing lies of shame, guilt, and thoughts that can leave one discouraged and hopeless. The mind is powerful and when we use it to heal and not to harm. I look forward to helping you thru whatever your challenge might be! Please let me know how I can help!! Therapy can be hard work but well worth the effort.

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a therapist that is comfortable working with adults along the age continuum. I have experience working with people that are just trying to cope with an unexpected event to those struggling with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness. I believe that everyone, no matter what the reason they ask for help, deserves to have the best possible experience for them. It may be that you need someone to listen or be a sounding board while you figure things out, or you may want someone to work with you to chart a path to recovery. I can be both and everything in between. I prefer you tell me what your goal is and then together we come up with a plan to get you there. I have spent much of my time working with older adults as I have a Gerontology degree with special training for Advanced Behaviors and Cognitive Care so that I am better equipped to work with those with a dementia diagnosis and their loved ones. I have also spent much time leading grief support groups and assisting those facing a loss, either through death or otherwise. I believe in using a strengths-based approach as everyone that I meet has 100% success rate for getting through the tough times to date. I applaud that resiliency and help focus on healthier coping skills going forward. Sometimes the tools that we use to get through the tough times are not ones we want to keep, such as smoking, drinking or over eating. We can work to replace those with healthier options. It is not easy to reach out for help and I promise that I will always listen. We will work on a plan together to reach the goals that you set for yourself and your life. Whether it be anxiety or depression, feeling overwhelmed or experiencing a loss, I believe in providing you with my undivided attention so that I can better understand what you are experiencing and what you are seeking. I look forward to working with you and helping you look forward to a more rewarding and fulfilling life.

Hello, I have worked as a Social Worker for 30 years (licensed for 17). I would love to support you on your journey. My work experience is in Community Mental Health (Housing first Model, Intensive Case Management. Assertive Community Treatment, and I taught peer counseling classes) and in Public Health. I worked in a Federally Qualified Health Clinic for the houseless, taught chronic pain management classes and managed medical respite beds. This is where I learned that people need their basic needs met before they can progress to more healing. I therefore prioritized getting people housed and helped them apply for social security benefits etc. I also provided a lot of unconditional love, support, and advocacy. Later I worked with frequent utilizers of the 911 system, referred by ambulance and fire depts. I now work part time in an emergency dept. providing Mental Health and Risk/Suicide assessments and as an on-call family therapist in an Adolescent Psychiatric unit. Along the way I have learned a lot more about how trauma impacts us across the lifespan and It is my passion to try and help others understand how they are impacted and to help them with the tools and support to heal and better appreciate and enjoy this wild ride we call life. I come from a large, loving, diverse family and my life experience includes unexpected deaths, divorce, inter-racial marriage, open adoption, love of travel and diverse cultures, the use of plant medicines for healing, supporting a loved one with long term cancer, and growing awareness re social and racial justice issues and advocacy. I would love to hear from you to see if we might be a good fit. I believe all beings are divine and have the innate ability to self heal, but a little guidance and support can be helpful.

Hi Everybody ! BH is terrific and I am so pleased that you have found the courage to ask for help here :) I am a Clinician licensed in the States of Texas and Washington with over 18 years of experience. I work in private practice with individuals and couples who are struggling with a broad range of concerns, including anxiety-related disorders, clinical depression, PTSD as well as Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. I also have extensive experience working with children and their families. I have broad experience with a large variety of populations, including Veterans and Trauma survivors. Since I worked as a medical social worker for a significant number of years - I have also worked with women and men struggling with cancer and chronic pain - as well as the rare diseases: infantile nephropathic cystinosis, intermediate cystinosis and non- nephropathic cystinosis. I have experience with Huntington's disease as well. Additionally, I enjoy helping clients who suffer with infertility-related problems. This was a personal journey close to my heart that also led me to want to help women who are struggling to have a baby and those who have suffered a miscarriage or a stillbirth. My counseling approach is warm and interactive. My clinical approach consists of multiple theoretical backgrounds. A few include : humanistic, dialectical behavior counseling, mindfulness, acceptance therapy, cognitive-behavioral counseling and counseling aimed at helping those to resolve trauma. The only time that I would incorporate psychoanalytic counseling would be to help the client to understand how the past could be contributing to her or his present circumstances. I do not consider stigmatizing labels to be beneficial in the helping process. When I am not working in the field of counseling - I work at my fundraising business to help women get their lives put back together following assault or domestic violence. I also volunteer for an organization that helps to stop domestic minor sex-trafficking. It takes determination to seek a more rewarding and happier life. If you are ready to take steps toward change then I will be with you to support and to empower you ! I am pleased that you are here at Betterhelp.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Barlow 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 Barlow 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 Barlow 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 therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Barlow may not take health insurance, some in the state of Oregon 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 Oregon 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 Barlow?

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

Barlow 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 Barlow 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 Barlow 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 OR, 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 97002 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 Barlow counselor?

Before seeing your Barlow 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 Barlow.

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 Barlow 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 Barlow 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 Barlow, Oregon 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.

Barlow 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.
