Living in a growing city that still has a small town atmosphere is something that you can appreciate. The friendly nature of everyone around you is fantastic but you wish that you could enjoy it to the fullest. Your struggles with depression and anxiety keep you from feeling like you are truly engaged with the community. These depressing thoughts inside your head and feelings of anxiety can make you feel isolated and alone.

To help with these severe problems, it is a good idea to contact a White House-area counselor that can help. They can speak to you about your feelings and will help you to feel better about the situation. The advice of a counselor and their companionship can help you to properly navigate tough times. It will be possible for you to heal over time, and you will be able to enjoy your life completely again.

24 years of experience

I am a Professional Counselor with 23 years of experience and am licensed by the state of Tennessee . I have experience working with individuals and families in a variety of areas such as anxiety, depression, parenting, relationship issues, abuse, trauma, adoption, grief and loss, and professional burn-out. I have worked in a variety of inpatient, residential, and outpatient settings with clients ranging from children and adolescents to adults and geriatric populations. I have served as the Clinical Director for a residential treatment center for children and youth, and later as the Clinical Director for an outpatient counseling center. I now practice independently. I believe that human beings were designed to live in relationship with God and with other human beings and that we are never more healthy and whole than when those relationships are thriving. In contrast, broken or poorly functioning relationships are often a deep source of pain in a person's life. The work of reconciliation in relationships both human and divine is central to my concept of the counseling process. As a follower of Christ, my faith is a great source of strength and comfort in my own life, and I believe that there is truth, wisdom, and healing to be found in scripture. With clients who share that conviction, or are open to exploring it, faith, scripture, and prayer will be significant sources in our work together. However, I also believe that there are useful concepts available to us in the field of modern psychology which can prove helpful in the pursuit of emotional health and well-being. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is an approach that makes a lot of sense to me, and since it has a proven track record of actually helping people, I find it's concepts particularly helpful. Simply put, CBT teaches that what we think and believe directly affects how we feel about ourselves, others, and the world around us, and this directly influences the choices we make regarding our actions or inaction. That being said, each client is unique in the challenges he or she faces, and I am committed to exploring what makes sense to you and finding what is helpful and meaningful in your situation. I look forward to joining you in your journey toward peace-filled and joyful living.

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor /Mental Health Service Provider (LPC MHSP), licensed in Tennessee with 5 years of experienced as a licensed therapist. Prior to that I worked as a therapist for 3 years as I worked toward requirements for licensure. I have worked with children and adults helping them to explore a range of issues including, anxiety, depression, parenting concerns, relationship (Couples) and family issues. My approach to therapy is client -centered, open and focused on positive regard for you, the client. Modalities I use in therapy include Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Often I incorporate existentialism into these approaches. I am a Christian and although I would not advertise myself as a "Christian Counselor" or use therapy as a means to proselytize, I would describe myself as a counselor who sees the world through the teachings of Jesus. I do have much experience though with clients from many backgrounds. I will always meet the client wherever he or she is and work to develop rapport and a plan of treatment specifically for each of you. Reaching out, trying to better understand yourself and others takes a lot of strength, energy and courage. It is an honor to be invited to help someone in this process. If you think that now would be a good time to step into this journey, I am ready to meet you.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in White House.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in White House, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in White House or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed White House 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 White House 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 White House 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 White House, 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 White House 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. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in White House helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified White House therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a White House 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 White House 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 37188 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 White House 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 White House 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 White House, 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.

White House 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.
