10 years of experience as a therapist

Are you striving to thrive and struggling to get there? Do your thoughts and worries keep you up at night? Has life not turned out to be what you expected? You've come to the right place. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California, and have over 9 years of experience working with a wide variety of concerns from anxiety, stress & worry, trauma & abuse, depression, grief & loss, to relational and communication issues, work & career challenges, and low confidence / self esteem. I have also helped many folks with creative blocks, personal growth, spiritual crises and issues, and those in life transitions. I have a special place in my heart for those that reach out, look at what's not working and try to make it better. You'll find me to be calm, caring and accepting. I think it's very important to respect others, their experience and meet people where they are with sensitivity and compassion. So, your dialog and treatment plan will be as unique as you and your story are. As a Holistic Psychotherapist, I work from a strength-based perspective, which means I want to find what is right with you and build on those strengths. It also means that I incorporate tradition talk therapy methods (such as cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, psychodynamic, gestalt, humanistic, somatic awareness, transpersonal, and positive psychology among others), with alternative healing methods (energy psychology, meditation, guided visualization, therapeutic breathing, and nutrition as pertains to the brain). This integrated and balanced counseling approach summons the strengths of all your parts to meet the challenge in front of you. It's courageous to seek change, growth and deeper satisfaction with life. I'd like to empower and support you in that journey if you are ready to take that step. I look forward and hope to be working with you soon!

15 years of experience as a therapist

Hello! Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Jaye and I am glad to have the opportunity to serve you. They say, “Do what you love and never work a day in your life”, well, I don’t know who “they” are, but they are right! I knew I wanted to be a therapist after finding a book about Freud when I was 10 years old. I was a voracious reader and I was captivated! Yeah, I know I was a nutty little kid, but I held fast to my dream. When I was 18, my life took a different path and I became a hairstylist instead, as I had a young son to support. I loved that work – the fast pace, the creativity, the mixing of chemicals in the backroom… it was FUN! The best part though, was learning about my clients through their stories and becoming a trusted part of their lives. People tell their hairdressers everything, right? What better training ground! I worked as a hairdresser off and on for 18 years and spent the rest of the time raising 3 beautiful children. When my children were a bit older, I decided I wanted to go back to school and fulfill my dream of being a therapist. I went back to school in 2003 and then started working in mental health in 2005. At first I helped co-running groups with children and then working with men diagnosed with schizophrenia within a small locked facility. While working there, I finished my undergrad in psychology in 2005 and started grad school in 2006. In 2008, I was hired by the Washington Department of Corrections and moved into forensic mental health. I have worked in forensic mental health, at a variety of facilities in the Pacific NW, for 13 years. In 2017, I worked at a couple ‘community health’ facilities and even spent some time working at the Multnomah County Jail. Its all been a wonderful, wild ride but I am ready now for new challenges, and thusly, I have decided to leave forensics behind and move into private practice. I love working with individuals and couples! I have years of experience with 'people of color' (is that a politically correct, relevant phrase anymore? I don't know... :) ) and years of experience with just about every mental health concern imaginable. I have many “specialties”, as in mental health topics that I like to help with, but my top specialties are anxiety/depression; identity issues; LGBTQ issues, intimacy issues and couples’ issues (intimacy, sex, divorce). My counselor ‘style’ is client-centered and solution-centered based in Mindfulness. I utilize various exercises/skills teaching and journaling as my modality of change with my clients. We will always work in collaboration together… Your therapy is all about YOU! I have practiced as a therapist for the last 15 years utilizing client-centered, solution-centered, strength-based style combined with empathy, validation and compassion to form a strong therapeutic relationship. I view my therapeutic role as one "with the heart of a teacher" in which I spend time finding out what the client desires in their life and then teach the client ways to create and attain their own vision of success through holistic, collaborative effort. My specialty is working from a trauma informed standpoint teaching Mindfulness for symptom management and distress tolerance. Starting where the client is on their therapeutic journey the learning/practice of Mindfulness allows for the exploration of belief systems and offers the client consistent safety and support needed for them to shift beliefs and try new behaviors. I am a proud member of the LGBTQ community! In my personal life I love spending time playing with my dog, growing mushrooms, writing group materials and having many outdoors adventures with my wife such as kayaking (she paddleboards, I am the kayak!), hiking, camping and foraging in the forest. We also love to do art projects and cook together. I look forward to hearing your story and helping you meet your goals in life… I can promise your hard work will be worth it!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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

Therapists in Donald, Oregon 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 does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Donald above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

You can also try a Donald therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

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

Donald 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 Donald 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 Donald 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 Donald 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 Donald.

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 Donald 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 Donald, 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.

Donald 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?

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.
