I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Tennessee with over 5 years of experience practicing psychotherapy. I work with clients that have a wide variety of concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, psychosis, relationship issues, and trauma. My work experience has been in private practice, group practice, and community mental health settings. I counsel clients that range in ages across the lifespan, but have recently focused on teens and adults. I use an eclectic approach to therapy utilizing various techniques that include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, solutions focused therapy, and person-centered therapy. I look forward to meeting you where you are at and coming along side of you to find hope and change in your life as we work towards meeting your goals!

Hey, I think it’s time for a deep breath! The more we chase speculation the more we turn those things into a mental drain. Most of us just need to slow things down and relax, to let our natural gifts come to the surface. Sometimes the assets in our toolboxes get a little rusty. I can help you re-discover them for current and upcoming challenging scenarios. For over 25 years my client base has encompassed individuals, couples, and families in a number of diverse areas. I have counseled in homes, organizations, schools, places of worship, and the military. Ten years of international experience allows me to assess relationships from a variety of diverse angle. I prefer to work with my clients in the present and future. It was Winston Churchill’s wife that said “ You are strong because you are imperfect, you are wise because you have doubts.” So being imperfect and having doubts is important. I'd like to think I’m practical and motivating, with a dash of humor. I want to let you know my hours in advance, no surprises. I'm available Monday - Friday in the am at 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. And in the pm at 1, 2, 3, 4 (CDT time zone). House-cleaning tips: My clients set their own day/times with the BetterHelp Scheduler, Better Help asks you a number of questions when you fill out your profile. Please answer all of them - otherwise it can delay our first session getting off to a good start. Reminders: I don't do "live chat therapy," we can talk briefly between sessions though on challenging issues that pop up. I also don't do A&D or domestic violence challenges - something best handled in a face to face setting with a qualified person. The first session for me always goes best when I'm not forwarded multiple large blocks of text, phone textings, etc in advance. Those things will all be played out once we get started . I look forward to talking with you!

I am so glad that you are here and ready to improve your life. I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida & Tennessee. I have experience in helping clients with self-care, stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, coping with grief and loss, & parenting issues. My therapy style is warm, interactive and real. I will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. This journey is about you. Test everything. Treasure what works for you and disregard the rest. I believe in treating everyone how I would want to be treated. This is why I only take on a small caseload so that I can dedicate my time with my clients. I believe that self-awareness and mindfulness are vital components of reflecting on yourself and your behavior. In order to accept and acknowledge that you might tend to react to certain situations in a specific way, you first have to notice that it's happening. The most important relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself. Just as you know that it's important to take care of your physical well-being with a healthy diet and proper exercise, it is also important to take care of your mental and emotional well-being. Remember that your wellbeing is worth the investment of time and energy. The work you do now can pay dividends for years to come. Be kind to yourself! Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath, smile and start again. I generally check messages here a few times per day Mon-Fri and respond as quickly as I can. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/personal responsibilities.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Nashville. I earned my Master of Social Work degree, specializing in mental health, from the University of Southern California. I have worked with individuals who have a variety of physical disabilities and mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders and polysubstance abuse. I also have experience working with LGBT individuals, offering counseling for interpersonal relationship issues and other life stressors including trauma/abuse and stress management. Additionally, I have worked with individuals and couples to attain skills that foster healthy development of peer, romantic partnership, marriage and family relationships. Counseling can be a vital component of a person’s whole health, as it supports understanding of one’s own life experiences that have a direct influence on each person’s continuing journey. My approach to counseling is collaborative. I encourage everyone to consider counseling with a skilled clinician whose experience and therapeutic style is a suitable fit for his or her needs. Through counseling, individuals can gain valuable support and learn tools to manage the daily stressors of life. I enjoy helping my clients navigate their life paths. I would be honored to have the opportunity to work with you!

Hello! My name is Chloe and I’m a licensed professional counselor in the state of Arizona. I have been practicing counseling for over five years, and have worked with a variety of populations in the mental health field for over 10 years. I most often use a person centered, cognitive behavioral therapy approach to help treat a variety of conditions and symptoms, including anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions, interpersonal conflict, parenting, and career experiences. Person centered therapy provides unconditional, nonjudgmental, positive regard for clients. This means that I do not make assumptions about how things “should” be in your life, but rather we work together to explore options that makes sense for you specifically. Cognitive therapy explores how the way we think about thing impacts the way we feel about things. It then aims to replace negative thinking patterns with positive thinking patterns. While these are not the only approaches I use, I find that they tend to be the ones my clients gravitate toward and they tend to work! Prior to entering into mental health, I worked in corporate America. I am married, have two children, and several fur and feather creatures running around. I truly love and have a deep appreciation for the therapy process, and recognize how difficult things typically have to get in order for most people to seek help. As such, I already appreciate you being here and look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Blaine 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 Blaine 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 Blaine may not take health insurance, some in the state of Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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 Blaine, Tennessee 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 Blaine 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 Blaine 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 Blaine 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 Blaine 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 Blaine 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 TN, 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 37709 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 Blaine 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 Blaine 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 Blaine, Tennessee 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.

Blaine 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.
