20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My formal journey in psychology began in 1992, with one of my college majors, human communication. I went on to study Marriage & Family Therapy at Antioch New England before finishing a masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Webster University. Throughout my life I have traveled within 49 states; of those, I lived in the Midwest, the south, New England, the east coast & the west coast. Some of the places I lived were urban, some of them rural. Most of my last two decades have been urban. My roots though are rural. Very rural. During the last twenty years, I have traveled within over sixty countries. Prior to laying down roots in Oregon summer 2015, I had lived in four “foreign” countries, on three separate continents as an adult. This offers me a unique perspective in culture, values, religion, and life. Every person, every story, is unique. Every person is simultaneously simple on the surface, yet incredibly complicated underneath. I will see you - all of you - beneath the surface that you must maintain. I will respect how complicated you are, and where you are “coming from”… the complexities of your life; your history, the inter generational trauma, as well as what you have been and are currently living through. This is your safe place. Therapy is where you can let those heavy weights & feelings go. Choosing the “right” therapist means so very much in your healing. In first consultation, we will discuss your needs, and my scope of practice, and you can feel out if it’s a good fit for you. I have studied, and have been certified in, several modalities; but find that I lean in most to acceptance & commitment therapy. When we meet, I may draw upon this, or pieces of other modalities, depending on where you are in the moment. Therapy is about, and for, you … I have the education, experience, and tools to adapt to where you are and shift as needed. I am licensed for individual, couples, child, & family therapy in Oregon, California, Washington DC & Georgia. I am approved as an associate by Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors to supervise LPC & LMFT associates. I have also achieved E- RYT internationally and completed two semesters masters level coursework at the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. I continue to study holistic & “alternative” approaches to health. I firmly believe that mental health is “health”. Every part of you is connected, all of your history is connected. The mind feels the body and the body feels the mind. One cannot be “healed” without the other. … they work together. I am here to aid that togetherness with you … and help you find peace & joy in your life.

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a therapist that is comfortable working with adults along the age continuum. I have experience working with people that are just trying to cope with an unexpected event to those struggling with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness. I believe that everyone, no matter what the reason they ask for help, deserves to have the best possible experience for them. It may be that you need someone to listen or be a sounding board while you figure things out, or you may want someone to work with you to chart a path to recovery. I can be both and everything in between. I prefer you tell me what your goal is and then together we come up with a plan to get you there. I have spent much of my time working with older adults as I have a Gerontology degree with special training for Advanced Behaviors and Cognitive Care so that I am better equipped to work with those with a dementia diagnosis and their loved ones. I have also spent much time leading grief support groups and assisting those facing a loss, either through death or otherwise. I believe in using a strengths-based approach as everyone that I meet has 100% success rate for getting through the tough times to date. I applaud that resiliency and help focus on healthier coping skills going forward. Sometimes the tools that we use to get through the tough times are not ones we want to keep, such as smoking, drinking or over eating. We can work to replace those with healthier options. It is not easy to reach out for help and I promise that I will always listen. We will work on a plan together to reach the goals that you set for yourself and your life. Whether it be anxiety or depression, feeling overwhelmed or experiencing a loss, I believe in providing you with my undivided attention so that I can better understand what you are experiencing and what you are seeking. I look forward to working with you and helping you look forward to a more rewarding and fulfilling life.

16 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with nearly 20 years of experience helping people manage stress, anxiety, negativity and depressed mood, problematic patterns in relationship, unexpected life events, losses and transitions. I can help you improve communication, achieve work-life balance, manage troubling moods and anxiety, and to understand yourself better. Sometimes we need help making an important decision, and at other times we just need someone to listen and understand. I've worked in community mental health agencies, outpatient counseling centers and inpatient treatment programs, and I love what I do. My life experience spans 60 years, starting on the east coast and making home on the west. I've lived in urban and rural communities with exposure to very different cultures. And I spent nearly 15 years in academia, giving me an intimate understanding of university life. I embrace all forms of diversity. I believe everyone deserves respect, and we all have right to be ourselves here. If you are introspective, able to reflect on your experience and work through discomfort, are motivated for change, and willing to apply the work outside of session, we'll make a great fit. My therapeutic approach will be based on your needs. I apply solution-focused therapy for many issues and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for anxiety and depression. How we talk to ourselves and frame our experience directly impacts how we feel and how we approach challenging circumstances. Much of how we think and behave is shaped by significant others and impactful events in our early lives. Bringing mindful awareness to these habitual ways of thinking and behaving is the first step toward a new experience. Please note: I do not treat active addictions, acute psychiatric conditions, active eating disorders or self-harm. My counseling style is casual and conversational, accepting and curious. I will help clarify your values and strengths, ask questions, offer alternatives, and honor your choices. I may offer resources to guide you outside of session. And because I'm committed to empowering you, I will always be transparent by sharing what I've learned about mental health. With all of the changes and challenges that confront us now it can seem hard to remain present sometimes and cope with it all. Sometimes we just need another set of eyes and ears to help regain our ground or shift perspective. At other times, we just need to know that someone really "gets" us, and supports us through a tough time. If two heads are better than one, there's no need for you to feel stuck in your own.

Hello, my name is Lowell Wallace and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I earned my Master's degree in Social Work in 2013 and went on to earn my LCSW in 2017. I have expertise in working with individuals and families with co-occurring substance abuse and other counseling issues.

I utilize a client-centered approach and realize clients are the experts on their own lives. I work collaboratively with my clients in setting and reaching their goals that will ultimately benefit their lives. Some of my most used clinical approaches are cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I enjoy these approaches because it allows me to help my clients gain insight into their core beliefs and how these translate into their thoughts and ultimately their behavior. I believe everyone has inherent strengths and abilities to face and overcome adversity and become more empowered and all they need is some assistance to realize their solution lies within themselves. I truly enjoy working with others and assisting them in becoming better version of themselves.

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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Rufus 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.

Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 97050 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 Rufus counselor?

Before seeing your Rufus 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 Rufus.

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 Rufus 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 Rufus 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 Rufus, 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.

Rufus 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.
