Hello! My name is Melody Anderson, CMHC. As a therapist, my hope is to provide a safe space for you to explore the issues and concerns in your life that are inhibiting your growth, healing, and ability to move forward. I have an irreverent approach to life and am awkward and a bit silly in my attitude and goals. No one person is the same and I seek to help you rediscover you. I have been fortunate and lucky to have worked with different people, races, culturals, sexualities, identities, spectrums, ages, and goals. Further, I’ve worked with substance use, domestic violence victims and perpetrators, people going through grief and loss, depression, anxiety, sexual identity crisis, and personality disorders. I specialize in Cognitive Behavior Therapy with an emphasis on Person-Centered Therapy (finding out what you value and finding ways to incorporate those beliefs into your everyday life.) I am married and have five adult children and a tween (5 girls and a boy.) I have a basset hound: Ginger Longbottom Spice. My hobbies include camping, fishing, boating, reading, crafts and being a grandparent. The quote I live by is, “Those who can, should.”

My name is Mary 'Beth' Fisher Sanders and I go by 'Beth Sanders'. I have practiced for over 30 years and am a licensed clinical social worker with certifications that reflect extensive background in addictions and other mental health issues. I have also worked for most of my career with a focus on families and couples. My approach is relational. There are as many approaches to therapy as there are therapists - if we align to work together my role is to empower you to reach your goals, to help you identify the assets and barriers to doing so, and perhaps teach some healthy coping and communication strategies as well. I consider the journey to self awareness and understanding a sacred journey, and one that is vital for desired change. Time is a precious commodity, and I will challenge you to maximize yours to achieve desired results. Additionally, it is a process that I myself continue to do, so be assured that there is nothing that I will ask you to do that I have not done myself. While I do not claim to be a religiously based therapist, please know that there is a spiritual foundation in my approach and I will meet you whereever you are in your spirituality, whatever that means to you. I consider it a great honor to know the deepest parts of those that I walk and work with, and will help you lift up and strengthen the best parts of you.

Hello there, it's nice to e-meet you! Along with my formal education, training and direct, clinical experience, I'm also a "BIG T" trauma survivor, hence I get it and care. Once my own healing journey began, I wanted to help others get out of the trenches too, just as some great therapists helped me do so. Trauma leaves us feeling broken, but healing is possible if you work hard with a professional. I specialize in treating identifying females 12+ years old who are experiencing C-PTSD/trauma, body dysmorphic disorder, depressive and generalized and social anxiety disorders, and alcoholism recovery. I am trained in CBT, EMDR and am currently getting trained in IFS therapy. Pain is difficult, but we grow, and are set free working through it. We can also learn how to decrease distress in the moment, increase our tolerance to pain, and avoid unnecessary suffering. Allow me to help you transform limiting/negative beliefs and thoughts, and to heal trauma wounds so you can finally thrive! I look forward to connecting with you!

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Bluffdale 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.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Bluffdale 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 Bluffdale due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Bluffdale therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

A Bluffdale 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.

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

Before seeing your Bluffdale 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 Bluffdale.

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 Bluffdale 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 Bluffdale 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 Bluffdale, Utah 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.

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.
