I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Tennessee with over 3 years of experience working in the substance abuse field. My counseling style is warm and playful. My approach uses motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, somatic therapy and solutions-focused therapy. As humans we all have our own vulnerabilities, desires, insecurities, and each of us, our own past. Working with a counselor is a tool of empowerment that allows us to meet our goals, create self awareness, and foster changes we wish to see in our lives. With life’s twists and turns, we can get out of balance and have struggles with adapting to our ever-changing surroundings. I work with clients to find healing and growth in a safe, non-judgmental space. It is my firm belief that in order to properly approach all of life’s external challenges, we must attend to our own internal challenges as well. I work with clients who are confronted with concerns about self worth, substance abuse, life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts and many other stressors.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Missouri with 14 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients to address issues relating to depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship issues, and career challenges. Are you feeling: Apathetic? Confused? Tired, worn out? Misunderstood by others and yourself? See life as a bunch of "puzzle pieces"? If you feel any of these emotions, then it's time to make a change. I would be honored to help you take those "puzzle pieces" and empower you to create the mosaic masterpiece you are so ready to see manifest. In my role as a therapist, I am here to help my clients develop healthy ways of thinking about and dealing with the issues you have mentioned. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your circumstance will change, but how you view your circumstances will be crucial in the therapeutic process. I believe in meeting my clients where they are, which means finding out from the client what they believe their needs are and what they would like to focus on at this time. I also believe that clients should be able “pivot”, should their needs change during the course of therapy. The reason being is life is full of ebbs and flow and ever-changing. As situations and circumstances change, so do the needs of the client. The relationship between the client and the therapist is a crucial component to having a successful therapeutic process. As you take this step towards reclaiming and recreating the life you want, you should have someone you trust to work with you in getting your needs met. I am honored and humbled to walk on this journey with you!

Why did you decide to become a counselor? I have always found that making connections with others is what drives change. I want to be able to provide others with that connection to help them find the best version of themselves and to help them through challenging situations in their lives. With my own personal experiences in my childhood, my goal has always been to help others overcome their circumstances, to show them they are not limited by their experiences and trauma. What would you say to a potential client? *This world is full of things and situations that make us feel powerless and not in charge of out own lives. My philosophy, and what drives my approach to therapy, is about learning to take control over yourself despite what is going on around you, or what has happened to you. You are the ultimate driver in your life, you find power within yourself. How does your personality influence your approach to therapy? *I am a no nonsense, down to Earth individual. I feel that I am straight forward and that helps me challenge clients to address the most difficult areas in their lives, the areas in which that hold them back from their full potential. I also believe that education is key, understanding how the brain works and how trauma affects the brain, it’s about using these concepts to help drive change. Brief description of Work Experience? *I did my internship at a Domestic Violence shelter for women and children as well as therapeutic day counseling in school settings. I have worked the past 7 years in residential treatment, 1 year doing outpatient, specializing in kids and teens with complex and severe trauma. I have worked extensively with self-harm, suicidal ideations, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, anger, aggression, defiance/conduct, family conflict, sexualized behaviors, trauma (sexual, physical, neglect, mental/psychological). I currently work outpatient therapy seeing both adults and children. Brief description of Education background? *BS in Pre-med Biology, Chemistry, and Psychology from Bluefield College in 2012 *M.Ed. In Human Services and Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lindsey Wilson College in 2015 My modalities include, but are not limited to, TF-CBT, Client Centered, Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing, DBT. I do not believe in a one size fits all therapy approach and try to cater my therapies to the need of the client.

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Let me take a second to introduce myself. I received my bachelors in psychology at Western Carolina University and then attended Walden University to obtain my masters in clinical mental health counseling. My therapeutic approach is Holistic and Person Centered, as I believe that you are expert on your life, and you are inherently driven toward growth and self-actualization. My role as a therapist, is to provide a safe, non-judgmental, empathic, and welcoming space for you, regardless of your sex, age, race, culture, religious beliefs, or disability. I was trained to help you figure out what is best for you, rather than giving direct advice or telling you what to do, however, I will be there to guide you along the way. We will work collaboratively to identify skills that are beneficial for you during challenging times. This approach will support growth in self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to regulate your emotions. During our sessions, we will discuss issues that you would like to work on or challenges you might be facing in life. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). These three therapeutic approaches help alleviate the challenges that come with trauma, PTSD, and personality disorders. The skills learned through DBT also assist with anxiety and depression. I will have you challenge negative thoughts and look at other ways to view issues or situations and learn to utilize healthy coping skills. I also like to incorporate mindfulness skills, such as guided meditations, worksheets, practice, and suggested reading. We can discuss therapeutic options that you are interested in when we meet. I am excited for you to reach out for support and I look forward to working with you to help you reach your therapeutic goals! "There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; Not going all the way, and not starting." -Buddha I am proud of you for starting!

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 Dayton 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 Dayton 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 Dayton 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 Dayton 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 therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Dayton 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.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Dayton?

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

Dayton 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 Dayton 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 Dayton 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 TN, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Dayton 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 Dayton.

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 Dayton 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 Dayton 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 Dayton, 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.

Dayton 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.
