15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a professional counselor, licensed in both Wyoming and Oregon, with over 15 years of experience. I have worked as both a residential substance abuse treatment counselor and as a outpatient mental health counselor with an employee and family assistance program. I have worked with clients with a broad range of issues including substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship concerns and sexuality. I have also worked with first responders who have experienced trauma. My counseling style is warm and supportive, with a little bit of humor thrown into the mix. All clients will be treated with respect and compassion, regardless of where they are on their life's journey. I strongly believe that the client is the only expert of his/her/their life and it is my job to help each one reach their full potential. We enter counseling to change something in our lives; whatever we are currently doing isn't working. But we must change how we think in order for our new behaviors to have lasting change. To this end, my approach combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive, dialectical-behavioral and client-centered counseling. Just as each client is unique, each treatment plan must be as well. We will work together to create a plan that meets your specific needs. I look forward to our first session!

I base my practice on the theory of Wellness-Body in Balance. Body in Balance includes five domains: eating, sleeping, exercise, relaxation and fun. Learning to improve these domains can help an individual handle life's stressors better. For those suffering from anxiety, depression or PTSD, it can add tools for your coping skills toolbox. For those with a current situation that needs attention, I can use person-centered strengths-based solution-focused therapy. As I have been a licensed therapist for almost a decade, I also have training and experience with Psychodynamic therapy, CBT, DBT, and Trauma Focused Therapy. I can also help with life changes as I have considerable life experience not only as a therapist but also as a woman, mother, and grandmother. I am look forward to working with you.

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 30+ years of post-graduate experience. I was the Executive Director of a non-profit counseling agency and have worked with clients in prison, hospital, residential, wilderness, probation, group home and outpatient settings. Clients have included children, adults, couples, groups and aging adults. I have worked with people of varied sexual orientations, ethnicities and races. My counseling style is cognitive-behavioral. I help clients focus on the role thoughts play in driving emotions and behavior. I believe the mind is our greatest tool, but too often our chief critic or saboteur. I have helped many navigate the waters around addiction, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, grief, anger, unforgiveness and other "stuck thinking." I have helped patients come to terms with terminal illness, loneliness, caregiver stress, divorce and life purpose. I start with a lot of listening. My clients describe me as being a calm and grounding presence in their lives. Together we will create a customized treatment plan that addresses your needs and helps achieve your goals. I look forward to working with you!

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, I’m Hilary! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LISW-CP) in South Carolina and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Oregon. I have experience working with adolescents and adults with a wide range of concerns including trauma and PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance use, self-esteem, stress, ADHD, motivation, health and wellness, anger, parenting, and coping with challenges and adjustments. Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals on an outpatient and inpatient basis within community agencies, private hospitals, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and my own private practice. Ultimately, providing therapy through this virtual platform has become my favorite modality for therapy as it breaks down barriers, opens up doors and allows you to communicate with me when and how you want. My passion is to help you move forward by taking the steps needed to move in the direction you want to. To do that, I use evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I am also certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure and Focused Health Coaching. The approach we take together will depend on your specific situation. As everyone is different, I tailor these approaches to your specific needs, goals, and situations. Throughout our journey, I will remain warm, gentle, empathetic, and firm while pushing you to reach your goals through honesty, support and effective techniques. I work with each individual to develop and practice cognitive and behavioral coping skills to manage stress and stressful situations throughout life. I believe in finding the strengths within each of you, and using these strengths to adapt, cope, and grow. I often reinforce that if you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always gotten. So, what does all of this mean if you choose to begin therapy? It simply means we will work together to figure out how to change. We will find some thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping you “stuck,” and find more helpful thoughts and behaviors that lead to feeling better emotionally and reaching your goals. I also believe the basis of any life-changing journey is a strong therapeutic relationship, and I enjoy spending time getting to know each of you to foster that support. When you are ready, I look forward meeting you, getting to know you, and supporting and empowering you to reach your goals and live the life you want to live.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rogue River 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 Rogue River due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Rogue River?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Rogue River 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.

Rogue River 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 Rogue River 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 Rogue River 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Rogue River counselor?

Before seeing your Rogue River 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 Rogue River.

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 Rogue River 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 Rogue River 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 Rogue River, 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.

Rogue River 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.
