Maybe you have waited a long time to seek help and suffered in silence. Perhaps you've become accustomed to this discomfort or a pain. Or maybe you desire change through seeking understanding and want a greater sense of wellbeing. Therapy can help you with this process of personal growth and healing. Whether you have a crisis, traumatic experience, significant life challenge or are wanting to experience greater fulfillment therapy may be for you. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders and helping people heal from traumatic experiences. I also enjoy working with people struggling with anxiety and depression, self-esteem and body image, and substance abuse/recovery from addiction. I believe through understanding and awareness, we can move toward becoming our true selves and deeply experience life. As a therapist, I am nonjudgmental, genuine, compassionate and goal oriented. I believe humor helps humanize the therapeutic experience. My treatment philosophy is primarily based in psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapy. I am trained in EMDR and certified in equine-assisted psychotherapy.

I am an open-minded practitioner with a here-and-now focus who values warmth, unconditional positive regard, kindness, and understanding. I am a licensed independent clinician with more than 10 years in the social work field and mental health field. I have a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree in social work from East TN State University. I have dedicated my life to the field of clinical social work. I am currently a licensed clinical social worker and have a private practice . I have been a therapist within both outpatient and residential settings. My specialty is treating those with depression, anxiety, anger, and adjustment disorders. My treatment approach is set on the foundation of the patient centered therapeutic relationship with the use of cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I believe in helping others improve their lives through supportive listening, positive feedback, and offering helpful questioning designed to inspire change and instill hope. Autonomy is important in change while working within a collaboration. My role is to guide and support you in building the skills and confidence necessary to live your best life. I meet you where you are and build on your strengths and resources. My style is not always “easy”, as a CBT therapist helping clients identify/challenge faulty thought patterns and beliefs is important. Motivational Interviewing involves questioning designed to help clients discover discrepancies in their behaviors and their goals/wishes for themselves. This can sometimes push you past your comfort zone but with great consideration and emphasis given to your feelings. Oftentimes, clients aren't aware of what is holding them back and keeping them stuck in unhealthy patterns. I look forward to us working together in strengthen awareness, improving communication, increasing personal growth and nurturing healing.

Making the decision to seek counseling is a courageous step towards the opportunity for wholeness. Oftentimes, it is helpful to be reminded that emotional peace and happiness are possible. As a licensed clinical social worker, I strive to create a safe and accepting environment where individuals can fully explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a meaningful way. Your interest in therapy suggests that you are ready to start the journey to achieving and sustaining emotional wellness. The purpose of therapy through Better Help is to embark on a path that will help you find balance within yourself and with the interpersonal relationships that you value. One of the most important aspects of the counseling process is building a collaborative relationship to help you meet your needs. It is my mission to do just that. Although therapy can be challenging, it can also yield rewards for those who are willing to be consistent, vulnerable, and engaged. If you are open to the therapeutic process, I look forward to partnering with you to create a self-care plan that is tailored to address your specific needs and goals. In our work together, we will find ways for you to become your most authentic self and in the process rediscover peace of mind, self-truth, and happiness.

My name is Leslie Kay and I’m a professional counselor, licensed in the state of Tennessee. I began serving in the mental health field in 2010, and in 2014 received my MS in clinical mental health counseling. I’ve worked in various clinical settings, including in a community mental health clinic, a rehabilitative correctional facility, an inpatient addiction recovery center, and most recently on a university campus. I have experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, motivational and quality-of-life concerns, attachment wounds, relationship issues, self-esteem and self-confidence, spiritual abuse, developmental/stage-of-life concerns, spiritual/meaning-of-life concerns, identity development and addiction recovery. I would describe my integrated approach to counseling as being strengths-based and client-centered in nature; including elements of motivational enhancement, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic and attachment theory; and being informed by neurobiology. While I do not have the expertise to describe myself as trauma-focused, I would say that I am trauma-informed, in that I am mindful of the behavioral and neurological impact of developmental trauma. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step toward seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You can also try a Piperton 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 Piperton 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 Piperton 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 Piperton 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 Piperton, 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.

Piperton 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.
