Hi there! My name is Jen and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the beautiful state of Oregon with over 11 years of experience in working with adults and couples. I believe that we all have the ability to create wholeheartedness within ourselves, but sometimes we just get stuck in old patterns of thoughts and behaviors that are no longer serving us. It can be difficult to get out of the habit of these patterns, which can leave us feeling frustrated, ashamed, hopeless, and so many of the other not-so-fun feels! Therapy can be a helpful tool in dealing with, and eventually changing, these unwanted patterns. My theory of change is that it first begins with awareness. This awareness then leads to subtle shifts in our reactions, which help to form new patterns of thoughts and behaviors. I help clients create this lasting change in their lives by using an eclectic approach based on Mindfulness, The Daring Way™ (the work of Brene’ Brown), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Neurobiology, Relational Therapy, Attachment Theory, Nonviolent Communication, Hakomi, etc. My counseling style is relaxed and collaborative, and chock-full of empathy, curiosity, and humor! I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Integral Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. The focus of my program was a blend of East and West theories of psychology, as well as an integrated approach to the four waves of psychology: Psychoanalytic, Behavioral, Humanistic, and Transpersonal. I’m also a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator and it is the foundation of my work as a whole. #BreneBrownFTW So, if you’re wanting to cultivate more self-compassion, build more shame resilience, change your ways of thinking, and finally have true agency over your life, I can help you with that! BONUS: if you also want to nerd out on psychology and laugh a lot, I’m definitely your girl!

We've all had difficult experiences. These experiences can cause pain and suffering. I believe we can heal from these experiences and grow from them, becoming more of who we truly are and want to be. I have worked with a large range of life circumstances including anxiety, depression, medical illnesses, grief, self-esteem, LGBT and loss. In these painful experiences we all are faced with healing that pain. Through my academic studies, professional work and personal life experiences I have come to believe that healing is something which can be learned. My focus in counseling has been with individuals, couples and/or a group as a guide for people as they are healing through life. Empowerment over life comes through thinking clearly and making wise choices. Unfortunately, problems can become so overwhelming that it is difficult to accomplish either one of these. We will focus on your goals and move at a pace that is comfortable for you. I can offer tools and suggestions for relief from many common and not-so common problems. I understand that a one-size-fits-all therapy approach is not always useful, so I will work with you to create personalized goals that fit with your experience. As a committed provider of therapy, I take pride in offering the best care possible. I value all forms of diversity and encourage you to bring all aspects of yourself into our work together.

25 years of experience

My skills as a psychotherapist of over 25 years combines a solid history in the healing arts as well as the performing arts. My experience in both agency work and private practice includes treatment of young people, adults, couples, families and groups dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, trauma, relationship dynamics and many other concerns. I view therapy as an empowering treatment as it supports one in living a healthier, richer and more integrated life . I feel that pain and loneliness we all know as a paradoxically shared experience. I believe that we cannot go from birth to the age of accountability without experiencing wounds. We are driven by our wounds. I work collaboratively with my clients to help them navigate through life's transitions, resolve numerous issues and achieve goals to create change. A graduate of Pacifica Graduate Institute I received a background in Jungian psychology. In my years of experience working with the plethora of issues I have developed a foundation as a Client centered/Humanistic therapist. However, I tend to tailor my treatment to the needs of each individual.

The client can then identify distorted beliefs and thoughts, challenge them and create more balanced thoughts which improves the choices they make, and how they feel about themselves and the environment.

If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Florence, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Florence 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 Florence 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 Florence 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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 Florence, 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 as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

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, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Florence 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.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Florence helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Florence therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Florence 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 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Florence 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 lot of people in OR, providers 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 97439 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Florence 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Florence 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Florence, 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.

Florence 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.
