Hello! Congratulations on taking steps toward your healing by seeking a counselor - that takes a lot of vulnerability and bravery. The most lasting changes are made when we are in control of them, and this is a great step forward in taking control of and managing your life. I’ll tell you a little bit about me so you can decide if we might be a good fit. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon and a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner in Nebraska with over 8 years of experience working with individuals, families, and couples. I have worked at two therapeutic boarding schools and a counseling support network where I have been privileged to help individuals and families work through hurt and trauma, grow through struggles, and come through on the other side stronger. This has included offering support to individuals through periods of high anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, and working through trauma and grief to a place of peace and comfort. I’ve also worked with parents through difficult periods of parenting as their children make decisions outside of their control, and helped individuals and families as they continue to process the effects of trauma, adoption, and/or grief. Sometimes life feels overwhelming, and most people go through a period or long stretches of anxiety and depression. We all want deep and meaningful connections in our lives and to experience wholeness. As we work together I want to empower you to take charge of who you are through tools, through support, and through new thought patterns. Sometimes we all need a safe space to cry and be ourselves so we can face the world, and I feel honored when someone shares their story with me. It’s a privilege to witness when someone faces the darkness and moves forward into the healthy and whole life that they want, and I want this for you. Primarily, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to draw from tools and well-researched methods for coping and growing. I have experience in helping individuals, families, and couples develop healthy boundaries and healthy communication so you can be your best self in the world and with the people around you. I am a Christian and can also provide a Christian therapeutic perspective if this is something you are looking for. This is your story and your time, so may you continue to take charge of who you are. I look forward to getting to know you.

6 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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!

I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking a real change in their life. Sometimes you are "tired of the rut I am in" or feeling that "something needs to change..I do not want to feel like this anymore." Sometimes you are struggling with "old issues" and sometimes it is more current stresses like anxiety, relationships, or just do not know what to do next; I believe when you are ready to make a change, having a supportive push can really work! I have been a practicing social worker since 1985. I have worked in many areas of practice including active duty military members and families, VA hospitals, and community mental health. I currently specialize in treating trauma of all kinds, depression, anxiety, women’s issues and life transitions. I enjoy supporting people seeking positive life changes. I am a firm believer in real change being very possible. For me, therapy is a support system offering a course of treatment. I usually work with a client for 8 to 10 sessions with a goal of active change and renewed energy and confidence. Give therapy a chance...give me a call.

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.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Mill City. 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 Mill City, 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 in the Mill City region and in the state of Oregon. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Mill City or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Mill City 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 Mill City 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 Mill City 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Mill City 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.

Mill City 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 Mill City 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 Mill City 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.

With a lot of people in OR, therapists 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 97360 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Mill City counselor?

Before seeing your Mill City 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 Mill City.

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 Mill City 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 Mill City 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 Mill City, 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.

Mill City 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 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.
