Hello. I am a clinical mental health counselor who is licensed in multiple states and have 6 years of experience as a counselor. I use an eclectic approach to counseling as I believe each and every person is unique and requires their own style of counseling and learning. I have worked with individuals ranging from crisis to depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, relationship issues, trauma, and family concerns. I have worked with troubled children and their families. I truly believe that the body, mind, emotions, and spirituality are all interconnected and in order to get the best results possible, you have to examine all areas of a persons life to help balance out their needs. My counseling style is also eclectic in that I can match the approach to the needs of my client. I believe in treating everyone with respect and strive to always do the best I can to help my clients. I see each person as an individual and understand that each person has their own perspectives and understandings of their environment, allowing me to individualize each meeting we have together. It would be my pleasure to have the opportunity to help you in anyway I can to help you through your life journey.

I have been a social worker for over 20 years and have worked with many people who are focusing on increasing their quality of life by focusing on healing those things which have been standing in their way. I have experience treating people of all ages coping with depression, anxiety, PTSD, marital issues, blended families, divorce, death, chronic pain and eating disorders. My special areas of expertise are chronic pain, grief and eating disorders including weight management. I was a Registered Dietitian for over 30 years, have a PhD in Nutrition with an emphasis in communication and have been an LCSW for over 20 years. I have completed the Certified Grief Counseling Specialist (CAGCS). I also have completed Level One of the Gottman Institute. I enjoy focusing on process/insight-oriented modalities and feel the excitement as my client achieves an “aha” moment in the therapeutic process. I am comfortable looking into family of origin topics as well as end of life issues. Because of my health background I am also comfortable dealing with medical issues and take a more holistic approach to clients. I do believe that alternative therapies including somatic therapy can be helpful in the therapeutic process. I have spent most of my career continually learning new techniques and theories to provide the best care of my clients. I have a tool box of helping techniques which are based on evidence based theories to include cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, solution focused therapy, Socratic Questioning, and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). My education background includes a BS. In Foods and Nutrition ( which took 13 years to receive due to “life”), a Master’s degree in Health Education, a PhD in Nutrition and a Master’s in Social Work. I taught a Body Image and Eating Disorders class for over 15 years at the University of Utah. I also have training in gerontology and enjoy working with older adults who may be in transition and with families that are struggling with older adult issues. As a widow, I also was a single mother for over 5 years with 2 teenage sons and understand the complexity of singlehood and blended families. I look forward to working with you.

Hello! I'm Jenny, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Since graduating from IU School of Social work in 2011, my focus has mostly been on those with intellectual disabilities and mental health issues. I have worked with several individuals on the Autism spectrum, as well as individuals with Down's Syndrome, ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, GAD, among others. I have worked as a behavior therapist for the past 8 years and am looking to continue to help others through additional platforms.

I tend to focus more on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as well as utilizing a strength based approach. Overall, I would say I utilize an individualized eclectic approach. Reaching out for help is an incredible sign of strength and I applaud you for making that first step. If you would like me to assist you on that path, feel free to contact me.

My name is Chanel Carlile and I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in the state of Utah. I received my M.Ed. in clinical mental health counseling and B.S. in psychology. My primary focus is on the treatment of anxiety and mood disorders, though I have experience working with a wide array of concerns, including trauma, addiction, and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Because I have worked in both private practice and community-based mental health settings, I have treated a variety of issues ranging from panic and OCD to personality and psychotic disorders, and feel this breadth of experience has made me a well-rounded clinician. I view therapy as an opportunity to assist you in finding practical tools to help decrease your current distress, while also addressing underlying causes/driving forces of such distress. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all, so I tailor established theories and evidence-based interventions to suit each of my clients’ unique personalities, situations, and values. Although my foundation is based on principles of humanistic and psychodynamic therapy, I also frequently pull from acceptance and commitment, strengths-based, cognitive behavioral, and narrative therapies. While therapeutic approach does matter, research has shown that the best predictor of therapeutic outcomes is not one particular approach or strategy over another, but the therapeutic relationship itself. When I first set out on my own therapy journey, one of the most frustrating things was finding the “right” therapist—someone I clicked with and felt truly seen and heard by. There is power in connection, and I place a lot of value on forming authentic, caring, and respectful connections with each of my clients. I genuinely care about people and firmly believe that each of us is worthy just because we exist. Nothing you could do or say would change that belief. I want to hear about your whole self—the parts that are good, bad, ugly, scary, shameful, boring, average, exciting…I understand that people are complex and nuanced, and I want to help you see that all of those parts have value. When I’m not seeing clients, I can generally be found collaging, crossword puzzling, or enjoying a good spoonful of peanut butter. I love collecting rocks, making up songs for my dog, and taking pictures of the sky. I’m an accomplished procrastinator and master self-roaster. I’ll forever hate putting away the laundry, and I frequently stay up way too late. But hey, I’m only human.

I am a skilled, professional and resourceful Clinical Social Worker with twenty-eight years post Masters (MSW) experience. I believe in providing evidence-based, culturally sensitive, patient-focused mental health treatment and support. I have assessed, diagnosed and provided clinical, evidenced based treatment to men and women who work, young adults, the elderly and those living with chronic medical conditions. I am passionate about helping people grow and learn to be the best version of themselves. I believe that it is never too late to change, to challenge or to grow beyond our previous experiences of ourselves and our world. The one true reality is that the only constant in the universe is "Change." Accepting this reality opens up a world of possibilities. My goal is to help you find your way to the person you want to be; one step a time. We do this without shame, guilt or any "woulda, shoulda or coulda" recriminations. I am a strong believer in the human spirit. I believe that if one could do better they would. Therefore, at any given time we are all doing the best we can; even it if may not be looking so great. The work of therapy and counseling is to help you raise the bar and know better, so you can choose it, practice it and own it as your new normal. My job is to help you identify what to work on and to support you and teach you new skills to manifest positive movement. I will offer you different perspectives for your consideration to include lessons from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and paradigms and models. I look forward to working with you. We will begin, "where you are at" and move forward together.

Greeting! My name is Keiana and I would love to provide counseling services to you ! I have a 21 plus year track record of providing counseling services. I have worked in hospital, clinic, schools, and prison setting. I enjoy working with all populations ( e.g., children, young adults; older adults; etc). I have experience in multiple areas- metal health issues( e.g., depression; anxiety; schizophrenia; bi- polar; etc) ; anger management; phase of life changes; relationship issues; trauma, substance abuse; dual diagnosis( e.g., mental illness and substance abuse); and a host other areas. My theory of choice is the Adlerian Theory. However, I function from an eclectic approach as I used various techniques/ theory to reach my clients ( e.g., client center; cognitive behavior; brief therapy model; evidence based; mindfulness; etc). I often use the first 10 - 15 minutes of the session to process what has happen in the client's life since our last contact. The reminder of the session is used to introduce the client to techniques/ interventions he or she could utilize to mange her /his symptoms, behaviors, or environmental stressors that maybe associated the identified area of need of environmental stressors that may have occurred between sessions. Homework assignments are implement and these assignments normally consist of the client implementing the techniques/ intervention. During the next session, the client will be encouraged to reflect on the effectiveness of this technique/ intervention. My most powerful techniques are empathy, active listener, and genuine personality.

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 Laketown, 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown, 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 84038 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 Laketown 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 Laketown 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 Laketown, 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.

Laketown 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.
