I specialize in helping clients struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma. I particularly love helping those individuals who may be struggling with low self-esteem and self-worth. I enjoy guiding my clients to identify their own strengths and unlock the hidden potential that each of us possesses. I love working with individuals who are ready for change but are in need of some extrinsic motivation and guidance. I primarily focus my work in mind-body therapies such as yoga and art. I combine the use of movement based therapies with talk therapy to help clients get "unstuck". I am a certified trauma-informed yoga instructor as well as trained in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. If you are tired of just talking about your problems and want to try taking a full mind-body approach to therapy please reach out so we can chat. I am confident that in working together, you can begin to heal yourself from the inside out.

11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado. I have experience working mostly with adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, bipolar, relationship issues, trauma, confidence and self-esteem and career challenges. I am committed to helping people through a method specific to their needs. I’m here to counsel, and counseling isn’t a “one size fits all” when you have a lot of different people with different issues and different responses to those issues. When a person experiences a life stressor, life may seem like it is unraveling. It is my passion to prevent the fabric of one’s life from further unraveling. It is my intention to help that person sew the unraveled threads back together through therapy. We do it together in a way that is appropriate and in accordance with specific needs of that person. That is why I have been trained in a range of modalities: cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, gestalt therapy, person-centered therapy, and humanism. I counsel people from all backgrounds, including children, adults and families. It is my moral code that we don’t ever stop trying to be better people, to understand ourselves better, and to address concerns in our lives in a healthy manner so that we are whole, complete, and safe. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Therapy does actually work! Many people reading this will probably be asking themselves about the truth of that statement. I am a therapist licensed as a clinical social worker in PA, and I seriously enjoy partnering with people for change. I have worked in mental health for about 20 years, within the U.S. as well as abroad. My counseling style is interactive and authentic. I believe in treating others with respect, compassion, and truth. I recognize that labels do not always help. I appreciate that each individual is made up of complex parts that work together, including mind, body, soul, and spirit. My approach to therapy utilizes combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, rational emotive, and structural family therapies. You will find that our dialog and treatment plan are tailored to meet your unique needs and specific goals. It takes courage to step out of the familiar toward the changes you want to see. As you consider taking those steps now--the ones leading to greater wellness and a fulfilling life--I am eager to support you. I look forward to working with you.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi there! I am a licensed clinical social worker with 7 years of experience, currently licensed in Illinois, Tennessee, and Maine. I have a Master of Social Work degree from Loyola University Chicago and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Education from Illinois Wesleyan University. Much of my practice has been as a school social worker, providing therapy to students as well as support to their families, but I have been working with BetterHelp since April 2021. In my BetterHelp practice, I enjoy working with individuals in the college and young adult range, as well as folks in middle adulthood. The clients I have served have presented with a wide range of social, emotional, and psychological concerns including social challenges, anxiety, stress, family conflicts, and parenting challenges. I have also worked with people with different neurodivergent classifications such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and intellectual disabilities as well as other mental health disorders . I have helped many families and individuals who have experienced emotional and physical abuse, a variety of traumas, and stressors stemming from disabilities as well as financial strains. My counseling style is relaxed, yet attentive and compassionate. I have a strong belief that a therapist should be approachable and that the therapeutic environment should be an inviting setting, particularly for those who are newer to therapy. Throughout the duration of a counseling relationship, I value respectful and direct interactions and enjoy using humor to put my clients at ease. My clinical approach is a combination of the following: client-centered therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, solution-focused therapy, and trauma-focused therapy. Though I've received formal education and training in these different approaches, I value making therapeutic concepts and theories simple to understand and easy for clients to apply to their own lives. For whatever reason you are seeking out therapy, I am here to take the journey with you and I look forward to taking those first steps together.

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

Before seeing your Cornersville 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 Cornersville.

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 Cornersville 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 Cornersville 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 Cornersville, 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.

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.
