Hello, my name is Shauna Pichette, and I graduated in 2015 with a master's degree in counseling psychology. I am fully licensed in the state of WI. Since this time, I have had a variety of experiences with different groups and specialties in different states. I have worked in acute care, residential, and outpatient levels of care. My primary approach for treatment is CBT, which includes DBT, ERP, and TF-CBT. I consider myself to be an ally for minorities and LGBTQIA individuals. My specialties consist of life transitions, stress, anxiety, excoriation/trichotillomania, OCD, panic disorder, and depression. My clinical framework is CBT, but my interpersonal approach is to be warm and candid. I believe everyone’s experience is valid. My goal is not to blame or shame, but rather to support you in understanding your own behavior and motives and find the strength to change within yourself. I believe in transparency as well. Although I am the counseling professional, you are the professional on yourself. My goal is to help you tap into that and give you the tools to succeed. Reaching out for help is such a wonderful step to take for your own wellbeing. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals!

Hi! Welcome to BetterHelp! I want to thank you for viewing my profile and for making the courageous decision to talk to a professional for support during, what I can imagine, must be a difficult time in your life. Choosing the right therapist can seem like an overwhelming process when there are so many incredible and very qualified professionals on this site; however, making sure that you find the right fit for you and your situation can be one of the most important decisions at the beginning of your journey. So, to help make this decision a bit easier for you, I want to introduce myself and explain a little bit about what you can expect if you choose me to help you along the way! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Clinical Professional Counselor, and Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist, counselor, life coach, caseworker, mentor, and intern supervisor. I have worked in many different settings throughout the course of my education and career, from inpatient behavioral health settings to forensics settings with court-ordered clients, long-term care facilities, private practice, and more. During this time, I have had the privilege of helping a variety of people identify core issues, develop healthy coping skills, and heal from deep wounds they once never believed possible. Something I like my clients to know is that you are in the driver’s seat! This is your life and your treatment. You know yourself better than anyone else. You know what has been helpful in the past and what has been unhelpful. We will spend time getting to know you. We can then build upon that knowledge to develop a personally tailored treatment plan to address the issues that you determine to be a priority in your life. I plan on assisting you with compassion, empathy, and directness to help you meet your personal goals. I am a very client-centered therapist, so if you would like me to apply a specific treatment method or technique, please let me know, otherwise, I tend to use an eclectic mix. I typically apply a great deal of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) throughout our time together, which can be very helpful if we notice that some underlying sources of your identified issues may stem from thinking errors. I also have experience with DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), including emotional regulation skills, communication techniques, grounding skills, and mindfulness which can be very helpful in improving interpersonal relationships and emotional regulation. Ultimately, what you can expect from working with me is a safe, compassionate, and supportive space for you to work through whatever you want help with. I’m really looking forward to meeting you!

Hello. My name is Esther and I want to congratulate you for taking the first 2 steps required for feeling better: (1) Acknowledging to yourself that there's something in your life that isn't working the way you want, and (2) reaching out to get some help with it. The next step is finding the right person to work with. Most people start by looking for a specific technique. There are tons of techniques available and my experience is informed by many of them, as you can see in the lists below. The most important factor for therapy being successful, though, is not techniques -- it is the connection you are able to make with your therapist. You are the expert on you and no matter how it may look from the outside, whatever you did to get you to today was the right thing because you got here. It may be time to find better ways to move on from here, though. My goal is to walk alongside you and help guide you past what's blocking you, to help you find your own inner wisdom and answers. In this walk my clients tell me they experience me as being warm, compassionate, supportive, easy to talk to, non-judgmental, a good listener, and deeply committed to their well being. I also have a great sense of humor, which can really help you get past some of the tough spots in this work. I have been doing my own personal growth work all my life, so I know what it feels like. And from the decades of therapy-related work I've done in addition to traditional therapy -- a broad range of support and advocacy for both native born Americans and people from 30+ ethnic groups from around the world -- I know that every human being has the same basic wants and needs: To feel safe in their lives, to be seen and valued for who they are, to find purpose, and if they are parents to be able to create a life of opportunity for their children. We are all in this together, and in this work I celebrate our commonalities as well as our diversity. I am acutely aware of the impact on our personal lives of the racism, the discrimination experienced by the LGBT communities, and the many other inequities currently rampant in our society. I also bring the experience of being a single adoptive parent who has raised an adopted toddler to successful adulthood, and I'm passionate and experienced in walking alongside foster and adoptive parents in therapy. Looking inside takes great courage, so I applaud you for reaching out. Whatever you bring, I look forward to speaking with you and walking alongside you. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My experience includes working with individuals, couples, and families. Feel free to get in touch.

How to find counseling in Lexington

Finding the best therapist close by in Lexington can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Lexington. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Lexington, 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. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). 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.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Lexington or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Lexington area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Lexington, elsewhere in Morrow, or in the greater state of Oregon.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington, 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 97839 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 Lexington 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 Lexington 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 Lexington, 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.

Lexington 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.
