Hello, let me introduce myself to you. I am a therapist who is dedicated to work with clients motivated to improve their lives. Are you a client who want to learn how to think more clearly, make better decisions, and avoid drama? Call me if you want a guide who will help you improve your relationships, reduce your stress, and create a more fulfilling life. My goal for my clients is to help them improve their attitudes so they will feel better about themselves and obtain the life that they desire. I work with clients who believe that they can change and grow and want to improve their lives. I design the therapy to meet each person's needs. The best therapy is creative and interactive. I am trained to use art and guided imagery in addition to talk therapy. My clients walk away from a session feeling they have learned something about themselves and have been given skills to solve their problems. I value each client I work with. I believe that together we can learn from each other. At this time I am working with clients through telemedicine in Oregon and California.

13 years of experience

I work hard to help people identify and overcome obstacles to their happiness and well-being.  The obstacles can appear as old patterns in the way we think or the way we interact with others, or as a combination. New obstacles spring up to keep us stuck in the old pattern. Sometimes the belief that there is nothing we can change is its own obstacle.  Whether you are age 18 or 78, the change process can be overwhelming, and you don't have to do it alone. I wholeheartedly believe that working with a qualified counselor in a confidential and secure format, ideally a very experienced counselor who brings care, curiosity and trusted tools, can be the most direct and effective way to make desired changes in your life, to remove obstacles to your sense of fulfillment and well-being.  A counselor should listen carefully to your goals and help you stay focused on them. I have worked as an individual and family therapist/counselor for over 13 years (and several years before that as a life-skills trainer), and I am licensed (LCSW) in Oregon for private practice. I believe that safety, respect and consideration should guide all of our interactions. Diagnoses and labels may in fact be helpful in some situations, but this is not the main approach in my counseling practice.  Similarly, I don't push clients to fill the session with talk about their feelings or family-of-origin, unless they think it could be helpful.  Whether you consider depression, anxiety, frustration, disappointment, grief and loss, relationship issues, habits, self-image/esteem/identity, or various changes in your life (or a loved one's life) to be at the core of your barriers to your well-being, I respect the fact that you're considering hiring a professional to support you, and I hope that you find a good fit in a counselor. (On that note, I would not be a good fit for someone who needs to meet after 4:30pm.)

28 years of experience

I have been a counselor for over 28 years seeing individuals, couples and families across the lifespan and from all walks of life. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. I completed my master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Lewis & Clark College and a PhD specializing in Marriage & Family Therapy from Kansas State University. I also completed a two-year post-graduate program in Clinical Human Sexuality at the Menninger Clinic. This blend of training has been useful as I help my clients address both individual and relationship issues (whether their partner joins them or not). I find that, often, the individual and relationship struggles overlap. I have worked in traditional out-patient mental health settings, residential treatment, private practice, forensic assessment and consulting as well as taught for several universities. During my years as a counselor, I have worked with clients struggling with a wide range of issues including those related to depression and anxiety, adjusting to life changes, relationships, parenting, eating and body image, trauma, substance abuse, anger management, divorce/separation, and sexual abuse. My counseling style is characterized by collaboration and respect. I tend to have a client-centered view and use psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral strategies. I believe that the systems of which people are a part (family, social, and cultural, for example) have a significant impact on their health and happiness as well as their pain and distress. Commonly, people set out to solve a problem only to have the solution turn out to be unhelpful or even unhealthy over time. I focus on helping clients address the original issues so as to let go of the now-troublesome solution. I have a deep interest in Positive Psychology and believe that there are many ways in which people can increase their own well-being and happiness in their daily lives. I incorporate many interventions from this field into my counseling practice. It can be that removing the pain or discomfort in life doesn't necessarily bring deep happiness and well-being. There are many ways to enhance this in one's life to create resilience when future challenges show up. If this sounds like a fit with your needs, let's get started!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have over 17 years of social work experience in a variety of positions. Of those 17 years, ten years have been direct, one-on-one counseling. I obtained my Masters in Social Welfare from the University of California Los Angeles and am licensed as an LCSW in California since 2009 and Oregon since 2016. I have been blessed to have a wide range of experience in a wide range of settings, ranging from a homeless shelter in downtown LA Skidrow, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, outpatient counseling in clinics, schools, and homes, and both the inpatient medical hospital and outpatient primary care clinic. Every opportunity has allowed me to work with a different population, to grow skills, and address common needs and issues across a variety of lifestyles. My approach is always to start where the client is, where you are at, in your needs, treatment, support, issues, and concerns, focusing on short-term therapy interventions. I have a goal-oriented, client-centered approach, identifying steps and treatment plans in collaboration with my clients. My therapeutic approaches lean towards Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, while identifying and incorporating behaviors, core values, and mores from the client's past that no doubt impact the situation you are working on presently. My hopes are to work and grow along side of my clients, helping you to identify, progress, and ultimately reach your goals. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your desired goals!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls, 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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.

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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls, 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.

Klamath Falls 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.
