Since 1849, the town of Kaysville has been home to many different kinds of people in the state of Utah. Mormon pioneers may have been the first to settle here but the farming community became a haven for everyone no matter who they were. From a famous cartoonist named Floyd Gottfredson to a football player of the Oakland Raiders, the diversity of the city is what makes it unique. 

Whether you are a football fan, someone who loves cartoons, or whatever interests you, sometimes you need a little extra help feeling like you again. It may just be that you need someone to talk to and there are many dedicated counselors based in Kaysville who are ready to help.

In this Safe Zone we believe all stories start with once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, and don’t let the Muggles get us down. Though it can get Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey the TARDIS takes us traveling (with Consent of course), to Boldly go where no person has gone before. On this journey, we can follow the White Rabbit, to Infinity and Beyond, through Platform 9 ¾ to walk across Middle Earth, and explore worlds found in wardrobes. Where we’re going we don’t need roads; but we fly beyond The Nothing, to find our Infinity Stones, Manage our Mischief, and Always question when we Aim to Misbehave. Even though Winter is Coming, the Force is Strong within us. So Don’t Blink and Don’t Panic because we believe The Truth is Out There, the No Win Scenario is Inconceivable, and Goonies Never Say Die. Here, our focus determines our reality, the goal is progress, not perfection, and we know the difference between walking the path and knowing the path; because we are The Chosen Ones. We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, that vulnerability is our superpower, and while hunting demons with the Winchester’s the odds are ever in our favor. In our quest to Know our Worth and Live Long and Prosper, we find that with Great Power Comes Great Responsibility and that We Can Do Hard Things. Even when We’re all Mad Here, we can still Have Fun Storming the Castle. So we will Just Keep Swimming, and Turn on the Light because we remember that Happiness can Always be Found even in the Darkest of Times. We’ve got Faith, Trust, and a little Pixie Dust, and rarely succumb to The Dark Side. So, Who ya gunna call?

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 Kaysville, 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 in the Kaysville region and in the state of Utah. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

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

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Kaysville 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 Kaysville 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 Kaysville 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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 Kaysville, 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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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, post traumatic stress disorder, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Kaysville 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 can also try a Kaysville 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 Kaysville 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.

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

A Kaysville 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 Kaysville 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 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 Kaysville.

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 from a therapist. A Kaysville 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 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 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 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 Kaysville, 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.

Kaysville 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.
