It is not uncommon for us to feel stuck, ambivalent, or even apathetic. We can fall into unhealthy and unmanageable patterns. And it is very common for us to go through episodes of this, revisiting familiar, unwelcome emotions when we least expect it. Through a collaborative and supportive therapeutic relationship, I help clients navigate these feelings and patterns toward renewed vision and direction. Through approaches from cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, emotion focused therapy, and solutions-focused therapy, I support clients in developing realistic personal goals to recalibrate negative thoughts, identify and articulate emotions, and improve relationships to self and to others. My practice is grounded in person-centered, humanistic, and psychodynamic theories. I believe that your individual, unique perspective shapes how you see and navigate the world. Our childhood experiences are often what create unconscious behaviors and beliefs that can create challenges in how we relate to ourselves and others as we get older. My time with clients is guided by my client’s unique position in and experience of the world, taking into account racial identity, sexual and gender identities, religion, political affiliations, economic status, and other important components of how we place ourselves in the world. I firmly believe that we are each worthy and deserved to live our authentic selves, and we inherently have the capacity to overcome struggles and challenges. I don’t have all of the answers; but together we will find better strategies for resilience. I have particular experience and expertise working with LGBTQ+ clients, BIPOC clients, adolescents, and adults in a variety of areas including exploring racial identity and sexuality, particularly living with multiple identities; college and career planning; interpersonal relationships; anxiety; depression and mood; navigating life adjustments and transitions; and making health behavior changes. I completed my Master of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis and I am independently licensed for clinical practice in Oregon and in Washington. And I have nearly a decade of experience working in community-based, inpatient, and outpatient settings.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Grants Pass 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 Grants Pass 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 Grants Pass 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.

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

Before seeing your Grants Pass 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 Grants Pass.

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 Grants Pass 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 Grants Pass 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 Grants Pass, 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.

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.
