15 years of experience

Hi, thanks for checking my profile, my legal first name is Beatrice, please join my family and friends in calling me Faith. Overall, I tend to be informal as a counselor. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years of experience. While my official professional title is properly documented, I consider myself to be in the "human love and restoration business". This explains the varied things I’ve done professionally and personally. My sole purpose in a client session, or even in a brief interaction with another person, is to “add value ” in whatever manner this needs to happen. I consider it an honor and privilege to be welcomed into a person's life; consequently I want to make them glad we met. I understand the value of putting ideas and concepts into writing to enhance communications, and for professional/personal growth. I am a confirmed contribution to two publications, "Seeing is Achieving, Invisible Walls & How to Break Through to Achieve Success”. (2013). And, as a contributor, editor and researcher for an innovative high school textbook, “Black History 365 An Inclusive Account of American History", (BH365.org) just published, August 2020. It is a great pleasure helping clients empower themselves--assisting each person in uncovering their true self-worth and value. I find most people underestimate their abilities, while overestimating obstacles. This doesn't mean ignoring or minimizing real difficulties and even pain. However, I believe people are smart, creative and capable, as a gift of birth. We work together to “remove the dross” -- issues impeding the ability to enjoy life fully. I love nature and often encourage clients to look at animals and how they cope with stressors in their environment. They do so without the added burden of things like guilt and low-self-esteem. My philosophy as a counselor is to help clients release their "fun gene"--let’s talk about ways to bring a big smile to your face, despite very real challenges dogging your heels. In other words, I’m big on fun! It’s a default approach in most cases. I’ve found when we laugh out loud and be less serious, things tend to improve faster. It’s a valuable cheat sheet; we talk about specific fun opportunities unique to each individual. Since no two peoples are alike, I customize sessions for every client. While I occasionally use similar clinical tools, I enter each new client relationship with fresh eyes—open to what naturally manifest as the best approach . As a result of doing a lot of professional contract work when my son was young (needed work hour flexibility), I gained experience in a broad away of people services and counseling. These include working with individual and couples, medical social work, a trainer in professional career development, and over 8 years working with military service members, couples and families. I've also been a business owner in fields unrelated to social work; my family too has a history of business ownership, Because of this, I love encouraging clients to stretch and take calculated risk to reach new goals lying dormant in the soul. In essence, my goal is to help clients attain a higher quality of life, never living in fear of any kind—the sky’s the limit. Finally, while I use a solution-based approach in counseling, we jointly decide on goals, plans and objectives--seeking to impose solutions backfires every time. Clients have "what it takes" to heal and feel better; I see it all the time and know it deep in my soul. I look forward to meeting you in a session where we can laser focus on how to bring more peace, joy and contentment into your precious life. All the best, Faith

Hello, I am Sandee Nebel, MS, LMHC, LPC, LPC-MHSP, LCMHC, CEDS-S. RYT. (licensed in 4 states) Are you struggling with feeling stuck or with adjustment and resistant to change? There are so many changes universally right now and they can be overwhelming. Even adapting back to what we are referring to as "normalcy" is different and new, right? Or...do you have some issues with feeling confident in one or more areas of your life? I get it. Sometimes clients come to me for support and guidance with their relationships, yet their work situation is mostly satisfying. And still others would like to feel more comfortable in their family role, professional role, or even in their roles in general. I can help you with these struggles. They are challenging to work through on your own and getting some help from a professional can bring such relief. Especially if you have been feeling stuck for awhile now, I can help you move past any traumas that may be holding you back. Sometimes you may not even realize that something from your past is re-playing in the present. I use eye movements in a form of reprocessing called Accelerated Resolution Therapy. It is similar to EMDR, except it is known to be faster (as in you're not re-experiencing trauma for long) and we clear past traumas in a solution focused format. I am certified as a Master ART Therapist. If you are someone who has been in therapy before, or are reaching out for help for the first time and you are ready to try to make lasting change, I am the type of therapist who will encourage you along your path. It will sometimes be a few steps forward and one or two back in the process of personal growth. As an experienced and compassionate therapist for 18 years, I aim to help my clients walk through life situations, over the bumps in the road, as you continue to keep moving forward, getting better and feeling better. In therapy, I use the treatment modalities that best resolve my clients’ issues. If you are experiencing a lot of stress and feeling anxious, I may use mindfulness skills from my training as a yoga teacher to alleviate the discomfort you are feeling. I provide therapy tools (Yoga, Accelerated Resolution Therapy) for you to apply on your own, too. If you are struggling with making changes, whether it is to cut back on alcohol, eat or sleep better, have better relationships, or move into a new career, I use motivational interviewing. I use all evidence-based therapies, matching the solution-focused theory to the problem, meeting you where you are at. I really look forward to my work each day, am basically tireless whether I am providing therapy, training to new therapists, or leading a workshop or seminar. I make time for my relaxation, learning, and taking good care of myself, so I can enjoy my own relationships and my career to the fullest.

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!

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Tennessee and have worked in various therapeutic settings over many years. I have experience in helping clients with stress, anxiety, and relationship issues as well as coping with grief, loss, motivation, and self-esteem. I am a certified DBT therapist (C-DBT) and will incorporate these skills in our work together. This includes a focus on mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness skills. I began my clinical training in Portland, Oregon working with youth and their families who struggled with behavioral issues in the home and school settings. In this environment I was trained in various therapeutic styles including parent management training techniques and family systems theory. I have worked with Spanish speaking communities in both Tennessee and Oregon. Cultural humility and an openness to learn and grow alongside my clients fundamentally shape my practice. Much of my career has been in community mental health settings providing services for self-pay clients and those on Medicaid. My experience also extends to working within DBT skills training groups and other group settings; these have helped me understand how we heal and grow in community and through relational dynamics. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy is courageous and I am proud of you for beginning your journey!

My hope is to provide a non-judgmental, compassionate setting to help you connect with your innate capacity to heal and feel greater connection with yourself and meaning in your life. I am licensed in Kentucky and Tennessee with five years of professional work experience.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Halls 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 Halls 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 38037 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 Halls 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 Halls 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 Halls, 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.

Halls 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.
