I am a licensed professional counselor in Oregon with over 19 years of experience working with adult, individuals, couples and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced difficult life transitions, physical trauma (including athletic injury) and abuse. My treatment approach is rooted in relationship and the genuine goodness of all human beings. I believe that we are all striving for psychological balance and flexibility. We regularly face seemingly insurmountable obstacles such as shame, doubt, fear, anxiety and depression. In response, we seek out very reasonable strategies of short-term relief in effort to move away from these undesired internal states. I am most interested in helping you understand what you most value. From there I am invested in helping you accept and claim those values, lean into the undesired internal states and frightening external obstacles, and understand what coping styles may help you forge a path towards your long-term valued goals. With the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle, I strive to create an environment that helps you continuously move towards what is most important in your life. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and free life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I work hard to help people identify and overcome obstacles to their happiness and well-being.  The obstacles can appear as old patterns in the way we think or the way we interact with others, or as a combination. New obstacles spring up to keep us stuck in the old pattern. Sometimes the belief that there is nothing we can change is its own obstacle.  Whether you are age 18 or 78, the change process can be overwhelming, and you don't have to do it alone. I wholeheartedly believe that working with a qualified counselor in a confidential and secure format, ideally a very experienced counselor who brings care, curiosity and trusted tools, can be the most direct and effective way to make desired changes in your life, to remove obstacles to your sense of fulfillment and well-being.  A counselor should listen carefully to your goals and help you stay focused on them. I have worked as an individual and family therapist/counselor for over 13 years (and several years before that as a life-skills trainer), and I am licensed (LCSW) in Oregon for private practice. I believe that safety, respect and consideration should guide all of our interactions. Diagnoses and labels may in fact be helpful in some situations, but this is not the main approach in my counseling practice.  Similarly, I don't push clients to fill the session with talk about their feelings or family-of-origin, unless they think it could be helpful.  Whether you consider depression, anxiety, frustration, disappointment, grief and loss, relationship issues, habits, self-image/esteem/identity, or various changes in your life (or a loved one's life) to be at the core of your barriers to your well-being, I respect the fact that you're considering hiring a professional to support you, and I hope that you find a good fit in a counselor. (On that note, I would not be a good fit for someone who needs to meet after 4:30pm.)

About Me I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, specializing in individual and family therapy for individuals of varying backgrounds. I have a private practice in professional counseling in South Jordan, Utah. I have extensive experience working with adolescents and families in the community. I received my Masters Degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Utah where I focused her studies on Cognitive Behavioral and Multicultural Counseling. I started her career in mental health as a counselor working in the school system, and has since become passionate about working with adolescents and their families in a private atmosphere. I have experience and spent time volunteering in schools, homeless shelters, and religious/civic organizations. I have had my own private practice in mental health counseling where I have worked with hundreds of individuals, couples, and families to resolve conflict and cope with mental health struggles. In counseling, I use an integrative approach, pulling from various theories, including cognitive behavioral, rational emotive behavior therapy, and family systems. I use a varying range of therapeutic techniques to create a treatment plan specific for each client. I value the trust and safety of the therapeutic relationship, and creates a counseling environment that is full of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humor. In addition to individual and family therapy, I have presented to and trained groups in a public setting, on topics such as effective parenting, self-esteem, anger management, marriage, sex education, self-harm, and grief. Above all, I value my relationships with my friends and family most. I have personally experienced trauma, loss, change, and disappointment in life, and is continually working on my own progress towards peace.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I enjoy working with a diverse set of clients. Licensed in California since 2006 I have had the pleasure of sitting down to talk with a great number of individuals who were struggling with a variety of concerns. My work in mental health began in 1998 in a small farming community just outside of Bakersfield, CA. I was fortunate enough to be hired by a community health clinic to provide mental health case management for children and families. It was there that I realized my desire to help others and found my motivation to continuing me education and training. I went on to work at a variety of jobs including a mental hospital for a period of time so that I would have the skills necessary to serve clients in private practice. I began seeing clients in my own office shortly after getting licensed. I believe that one of the very best things that I can offer my clients is the gift of being heard. I will provide a safe space where clients can share their greatest challenges and know that I am listening. I will not judge them but will do my very best to encourage them and help them find solutions to their problems. I promise to treat every client with the highest level of respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I tend to approach my work from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. My work with individuals often involves some effort to change old habits including negative thinking. Marriage counseling has always been a significant part of my work. Those who do marriage well, take time to know what is going on with one another and make time to enjoy each other. I have had training in the methods of Drs. John and Julie Gottman and use their material with most of the couples that I see. You do not need to be “crazy” or be in significant distress to seek counseling. Sometimes our beliefs or expectations of ourselves or of counseling result in a delay in seeking help until situations become serious, or we are already in crisis. Many people tell us that they wish they had come to counseling sooner. Save yourself some avoidable distress and seek counseling earlier rather than later.

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! My name is Tarin Bickford and I've been a clinical social worker for more than two decades. In that time, I've worked with children and adults dealing with a wide-variety of issues such as trauma, addiction, mental health concerns, intimate partner violence, PTSD and child abuse (as well as many other life-altering issues). My approach to therapy is multi-faceted and I incorporate many modalities into my work (although I primarily use cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment and solution-focused therapy). Life can be so challenging and I commend you for taking the first step toward a better future. Engaging in the therapeutic process opens windows and doors you didn't even realize were closed. Together we can work on anything that is troubling you so that you can enjoy life to the fullest. I want to help you become the best version of yourself and will do this by fostering a therapeutic relationship built on mutual respect, trust and an abundance of kindness. You deserve to be safe, happy and well-treated. Let's work together to turn your life into exactly what you want it to be.

My name is "Ms. Tam" or "Ms. Hicks" and I am here to help. I am a licensed mental health professional and I will be able to partner with you on this journey. I am pleased you have selected me, Tamara Hicks as your therapist. This disclosure will inform you about my background and counseling practice to ensure that you understand our professional relationship. I graduated from North Carolina Central University in May 1996 with dual degrees, a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. I obtained my Master’s in Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University in September 2014. In 2015, I tested and passed the NBCC National Board of Counselors Certification exam. I also have met and continue to engage in the required CEU’s – continuing education units required to maintain full licensure in NC and Oregon. I am dedicated to helping individuals overcome obstacles that prevent them from enjoying healthy lives. My motto is: Therapy is a journey, and you are in the drivers’ seat, and I am in the passenger seat (shotgun!). My counseling approach is a very eclectic style and encompasses person-centered therapy, family systems, cognitive-behavioral therapy and as of recent, training in EMDR- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. I may pull from other theories and incorporate various techniques depending on the specific needs of the client. On occasion, I may suggest that you read books, take some tests, or interact with some worksheet assignments and journaling. Change is seldom quick and easy; therefore, your consistent and ongoing effort will be necessary.

My goal is to help individuals and families gain or improve their life skills in order to make the best choices for what they want to accomplish.

I believe that everything in your life intertwines to create your life story and that we all have control over our destiny.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield, 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 97875 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield 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 Stanfield, 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.

Stanfield 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.
