My name is Ramata Adebawo. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oregon with several years of experience working as a therapist in a diverse community. My cultural competency is built on a lifetime experience. Growing up and moving to the United States, where I was surrounded by cultures different from my own, I was encouraged to identify and value the commonalities and differences of the human life experience. Exposure and working with diverse people were instrumental in shaping my worldview and values. My awareness and appreciation of cross-cultural understanding grow as a journey of life. I highly respect and value individuals who come from different cultural backgrounds, religions, and experiences. I feel strongly about working with people who don’t have a voice and collaborating with individuals as a team. I want to be an advocate, a partner, and pursue a role that will allow me to work with as many people as I can. I chose this profession because I feel passionate about it. Not many people are fortunate enough to find a job or a career that they help and teach me how to value and respect individuals who are going through some kinds of life circumstance in life and trying to find a way out of the situation with the support of community and therapist. I am grateful for the opportunity. My counseling style is very empathetic, caring, mindful, and client-centered, and my counseling style is very understanding, caring, aware, and client-centered. I approach my counseling with combination strengths therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, and solution-focused therapy to ensure that the highest level of outcomes is achieved as outlined by a unique treatment plan that will focus on your needs precisely. Most importantly, I am committing myself to demonstrate compassion for all and being sensitive to the needs of others.

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!

Welcome! My name is Lindsay and I am licensed in Oregon with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, family conflicts, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. You have the right and responsibility to choose a counselor and treatment modality that best suits your needs. This document is part of the Standards of Practice for Board Licensed Mental Health Counselors. The Professional Disclosure Statement is designed to inform you of my professional credentials, standards of practice, types of service offered, therapeutic orientation and fee schedule. Please review the following information. Happy reading! Credentials: • Board Eligible Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) - #301816 • Professional Counselor in Oregon (LPC) - #C3629 As a Licensee I abide by the ACA (American Counseling Association) and state Board’s Code of Ethics. To maintain my license I am required to participate in continuing education, taking classes with subjects relevant to the counseling profession. Education & Training: I hold a Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Gonzaga University. Major coursework included human growth and development with an emphasis in children and adolescents, group process and dynamics, multicultural counseling, the counseling relationship, change process, ethics, research and statistics. Counseling Experience: I have enjoyed working with children, teens, adults, families and groups for nearly twenty years. My journey into the field of counseling began with working at summer adventure camp in Montana as a teen myself. I continued on the path of counseling and outdoor education through undergraduate studies. Towards the end of my undergraduate experience I sought a way to really make a difference in peoples’ lives; not just teach them how to ski or canoe, but journey with purpose. That’s when Outward Bound found me. During my three fulfilling years with Outward Bound, I gained great satisfaction in seeing the kids whom the world had told, “you can’t, you will never, and you’re not enough” discover “I can, I will, and I am enough!” I witnessed them build trust and relationship with staff, peers, and family members. This sparked a desire to increase my knowledge and skill in how to help individuals and families find healing. In 2012 I graduated from Gonzaga University with a Master of Arts in Community Counseling. During graduate school I worked as a Mental Health Counseling Intern for Excelsior Youth Center (a long-term residential care facility for youth with emotional and behavioral issues). In that time I also worked as a Graduate Assistant for Gonzaga University’s Student Wellness Resource Center, where my primary role was facilitating harm reduction model alcohol education classes. From 2012 to 2015 I owned and operated a private practice in Spokane, Washington where I worked with youth, adults and families primarily with anxiety, depression and relationship problems. During this time I also received certification in equine assisted therapy and facilitated EAGALA model sessions. In 2014 I began working as a contracted provider with Alliance Counseling in Canby, OR and facilitated Eco and Equine therapy for Chemawa Indian School students. Beginning in September, 2015 I became employed with the Indian Health Service full time and continue to provide counseling services for Chemawa Indian School students, families and community members. I work with a wide variety of presenting issues/needs including: • ADHD • Alcohol Education • Anger Management • Anxiety or Fears • Attachment Related • Child or Adolescent • Coping Skills • Depression • Family Conflict • Mood Disorders • Parenting • Relationship Issues • Self-Esteem/Identity • Self-Harming • Suicidality • Spirituality • Teen Issues • Trauma Recently I began adding private practice hours and work with many of the same issues. My specialty lies in experiential therapies. For nearly twenty years I have worked with youth, families and young adults in the field of experiential education and therapy, facilitating self-discovery, team-building, problem-solving, communication, and leadership activities. I often draw from this by utilizing experiential techniques in session. Counseling Methods: I view therapy as a dynamic, collaborative process for holistic (mind, body, spirit) and multi-systemic (e.g. self, family, peers, school, career) growth where clients regain or develop balance, satisfaction and purpose. My view of therapy comes largely out of what I believe is true of all people. I believe all people: • Need and form attachments • Need family/community, and strive to understand their place within it • Experience competing needs daily & make choices based on needs and wants • Develop “patterns of being” that can lead to distress or wellness • Make mistakes • Have the capacity for, and seek, forgiveness • Want to be known and understood • Have a sense of, and appreciation for, humor • Seek to find meaning and purpose in life • Seek knowledge or faith regarding what happens after death • Face life challenges and have varying measures of resiliency • Learn best by experience • Have drive and capacity to express creativity • Have the power to change Given this, my approach to therapy is integrative and humanistic. My view is that every person sees change differently, so I must use my skill and training to follow your lead and offer the resources, skills, perspective, or perhaps just the environment for you to discover the change you are looking for. I sincerely believe YOU have the power to create or find the change you desire. You, like all people, may just need some help to find your way back onto the path of wellness and fulfillment. Some strategies and techniques I use include: assessment, art, music, play therapy, writing/journaling, animal-assisted therapy, therapeutic recreation, psycho-education and traditional psychotherapy (DSM diagnosis and exploration of past, present and future oriented thoughts, feelings and behaviors). Counseling can be a painful experience with unpleasant feelings. As people grow and develop through counseling, social relationships may change as well. I encourage you to utilize your support network as you make this journey.

It's my honor to help you get there. I'll be your biggest cheerleader.

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 Moro. 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 Moro, 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 Moro 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.

  • CBT

  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro, 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 97039 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 Moro 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 Moro 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 Moro, 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.

Moro 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.
