It has been my passion to help people who have experienced a traumatic event regain a sense of self and help them go from victim to survivor. It is through the integration of different therapy styles and techniques that together with you, that I work to build on your strengths and achievements towards personal growth. This collaboration of techniques will give the opportunity to more effectively work through past and/or present issues that may be causing pain and hardship. It is through these combined efforts, that together and at your pace, we are able to gain insight and understanding into the difficulties so that you may overcome emotional hurdles and experience a more fulfilling life.

Hello and Welcome! Are you tired of trying to resolve problems and issues life has thrown at you, tired of friends and family offering advice or struggling alone with things that seem overwhelming? The reason I became a social worker and progressed to being a therapist is because of my own life experiences. I joined the military out of high school to escape. After three years I came back to the same places and people that I had run away from. I enrolled in college and started counseling with a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who changed my life. She helped me realize that I could change detrimental aspects of my life and gave me the support I needed to succeed. If you are struggling with life challenges, I would like to help you. I recognize that taking the first steps to make changes can be incredibly difficult and I strive to create a calm and relaxed relationship with my clients, so they feel comfortable discussing the intimate details of their problems and life challenges. My style of counseling is warm, empathetic. I use a strength based, goal oriented approach for my clients to set attainable goals to help empower them overcome obstacles they face on their life journey. I have worked with inpatient and outpatient clients from adolescents to geriatrics with a broad range of problems in individual and group settings. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you regarding the obstacles in your personal or professional life.

My education, 20 years of experience, and license is in clinical social work. As your therapist, I help you to practice the skills related to hope, compassion, and solution focused thinking. If you're feeling lost, and desire help finding the map back to you, then music, art, poetry, and writing can ignite feeling, motivation, and drive. Once the fuel is identified we will use it to help power your ability to heal. Utilizing your resources is key to feeling hopeful. It is very cool to realize your own potential and that what you needed to move forward, you already have. May therapy allow for the revealing of your grit and ability to endure. As you become aware of this energy that is yours, you can begin to use it for yourself right now. What if you use your own power to continue forward and perhaps even discover a new path for healing? All humans know loss. It feels amazing to find hope and to feel found. Your favorite music, art, pets, food, people make you feel alive and connected. Healing is finding that again. Healing is hoping, and having the courage to love and to forgive again. It starts with loving yourself. It can start with our first conversation. I want to help ignite your potential. Oh and of course love is never a mistake. How would it feel to start loving yourself more? Let's talk about reclaiming a future that you're excited about.

As a combat-deployed veteran and military family member, I have first-hand experience with the demands of military life and enjoy working with service members, veterans, and their families to help heal the invisible wounds in their individual, couple, and family relationships; helping them heal and become better partners, parents, and family members. I also particularly enjoy working with parents. Parenting is a journey for which there is no set road-map and yet it is one of the most significant journeys most people will undertake. I believe in empowerment and in my practice I bring compassion, honesty, and mutual respect. I utilize an eclectic style of researched based therapeutic approaches that are personalized to each individual I work with and am looking forward to getting to know you.

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 Millersville area can be found below:

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

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 Millersville 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 Millersville 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 Millersville, 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.

Millersville 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.
