Hey! I'm Elvia, a clinical social worker licensed in Utah. I have been in this field for 6 years, but have over 3 years of experience as a psychocounselor. I have worked with diverse clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, parenting, trauma, and self-esteem. It's important to me that my clients feel respected, safe, and supported in all our interactions. I describe my counseling style as "keeping it real" and "out of the box."  I believe in meeting my clients where they're at and helping them set and meet THEIR goals. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, and psychodynamic counseling. Trust me. I get it. Seeking out support is a big step and takes a lot! You're already one step closer to meeting that goal or making a change in your life! Let's do this! I got you!

I believe that despite a person who has family/ friends to consult with, that the value of therapy is having an objective person's eyes and ears on your struggles and that the process can help you move forward when you are feeling "stuck." Identifying your strengths and ideal solutions are part of a treatment plan that helps us stay focused and determine how effective therapy is in your life. Additionally, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy mode I use to discover what thoughts, feelings and belief systems are at play in feeling "stuck," and produces new ideas about approaching your issues. I am now very excited about implementing the use of a fairly new mode of therapy known as "ACT" that stands for "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy". People walk through this self-discovery process not because it's easy, but to feel better, lighter and more effective in navigating their lives. For the best therapeutic outcome, there needs to be trust and respect between the client and the therapist. I encourage any and all questions to see if we could be a good fit! I have recently decided to add to my bio by specifically letting potential clients know that most of my professional career as a therapist has been in working with sex offenders, their families and victims, as well as having expertise in domestic violence issues. Additionally, (and on a bigger scale as these issues are becoming more pervasive now that the pattern is clearly identified), I am working very hard with individual clients experiencing Narcissistic Abuse. There seems to be a growing need for attention to these specific problems and a need for a professional who has a lot of experience in addressing these issues. It should also be noted that if someone is in need of sex offender therapy, they must have successfully completed a legally recognized program first. In my private time I enjoy growing organic gardens and cooking with the results, playing outdoors in every season- skiing, camping, hiking, kayaking, and love playing and hiking with my new dog (rescue), Blue. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to discover healthier and more authentic ways of relating to people, but especially ourselves.

Hello. I have been a mental health counselor for 20 years; currently residing in Utah. prior to that was NY and FL. I work with an array of concerns, including, but not limited to marriage and family, childhood trauma, attachment disorder, ADHD, disordered eating, anxiety/mood disorders, anger management, substance use, grief and loss, and some psychotic disorders/behaviors. I have also worked with individuals and families involved with divorce/blended/separation issues; including reunification and parental alienation. As a Christian, I believe in meeting people where they are, with respect, dignity, humility and compassion. My therapeutic approach includes EMDR, existentialism, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution-focused. Our therapeutic relationship is that of a dance; sometimes you will lead, sometimes I will lead. Our dance will be slow and steady at times and yet other times unsteady and off beat. Please understand that sometimes, the dynamic of the dance will seem uncomfortable and you will doubt whether or not you can continue; rest assured, that is where I begin to lead you. I will teach you the dance, in other words, how to cope with whatever it is you are struggling with. Then one day you will lead, by mastering the skill set needed to overcome whatever difficulties lie ahead in your given situation. It is a process that requires patience, trust and kindness on your part - being kind to yourself, but also, gradually allowing yourself to trust and be patient with the process. It takes great courage to reach out for help from a stranger! And you are very brave and courageous by taking the next best steps in this journey; this dance! I consider it a privilege to work alongside you. Blessings, Jessica

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Farmington 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 Farmington 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 Farmington may not take health insurance, some in the state of Utah 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 Utah 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 Farmington, Utah 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 Farmington 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 Farmington 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?

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 Farmington 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 Farmington 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 UT, 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 84025 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 Farmington 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 Farmington 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 Farmington, 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.

Farmington 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.
