Hi! Thank you for viewing my profile. I have 28 years of experience in providing mental health counseling to individuals and couples in the state of RI. I would describe my style as "warm" and caring. I love helping people reach their individual potentials. My therapeutic persuasion is primarily cognitive-behavioral. I truly believe that the way in which we think and perceive an event is based upon life experiences and has alot to do with how we feel. If we can change the way we think, we can then change how we feel. I like to work collaboratively with a client. I see my role as a facilitator, to help you achieve your therapeutic goals. Most of my treatment expertise is in the area of depression, anxiety and issues related to sexual orientation, gender identification and gender dysphoria. If you choose to work with me, I promise to truly listen to your concerns and help you formulate a plan to address your issues.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I have seven years of experience in clinical social work, primarily assisting clients with adjustment to challenging transitions in life. Much of my experience has been with clients who are living with serious illnesses, facing difficult decisions, learning how to manage anxiety and depression, and/or coping with grief and loss. Personally, I am a recent cancer survivor and work in an oncology clinic. My experience in both of these roles has reinforced my belief in a whole health approach to treatment. The mind and body are inextricably connected and both must be given attention and cared for to maintain balance. My therapeutic approach is client centered, strengths based, and solution focused. I help clients set reasonable expectations to meet their personally identified goals. I value the therapeutic relationship and strive for my clients to not only feel heard by me, but to hear themselves clearly as well. Sometimes hearing ourselves is very difficult with the chatter of the stress and worry in our minds. I work to help clients gain clarity in their thoughts and alter less functional patterns of thinking, primarily drawing from mindfulness practice, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Hello! Welcome to Better Help. My name is Starlett Armstrong and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in the state of Tennessee. I have several years’ experience in the behavioral health arena, and I am certain that my knowledge, skills, and abilities will make me an excellent clinician with the Better Help Team. I am a graduate of Eastern Michigan University, in Michigan where I began my career. As a past protective service specialist for the State of Tennessee as well as Michigan, I acquired many skills during my experience in child and family services. Using forensic interviewing, solution-focused planning, crisis intervention, evidence gathering techniques, and necessary court actions I have a thorough understanding and knowledge of youth and families as well as the legal operations related to minors. I have conducted several forensic interviews in an effort to determine whether abuse or neglect had occurred. Working with abused and neglected children allowed me the opportunity to utilize solution-focused techniques along with a trauma-informed approach while conducting crisis interventions with children and families to preserve the family unit. Additionally, I have experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults in crisis. As a past crisis counselor for Youth Villages, I was afforded the opportunity to assess children and adolescents in times of crisis. I diagnosed severe and persistent mental illnesses through clinical assessments, risk assessments, and client evaluations. And when deemed necessary, I facilitated in-patient psychiatric treatment for the safety of the children and families. As a previous Social Work Consultant for the University of Tennessee, I worked with the foster care and juvenile justice workers to assure that children entering the State’s custody received the proper services and level of care. For the past 10 years, I have been the Director of Clinical Services for a 73-bed residential facility; however, approximately one year ago, inherited a 30-bed psychiatric hospital that treats children, adolescents, and adult patients. Because I treat patients with trauma histories; therefore, I became a certified clinical trauma professional. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR, TBRI, TF-CBT, DBT, and CBT. I am confident that my knowledge, skills, and abilities make me a superior candidate for your treatment needs. Your consideration of me as your therapist is greatly appreciated. Specialties: • Trauma • Grief and loss • Anger Management • Emotional regulation • Coping Strategies • Self-esteem • Depression Also experienced in: Trauma and abuse, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Bipolar disorder Clinical approaches: EMDR, TBRI, TF-CBT, DBT, CBT, and ARC Years of Experience: 15

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket may not take health insurance, some in the state of Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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 Woonsocket, Rhode Island 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 Woonsocket 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.

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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 RI, providers may be booked out with clients.

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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket 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 Woonsocket, Rhode Island 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.

Woonsocket 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.
