Hi! My name is Kelsey Haymond and I would love the opportunity to work with you. Life can be difficult at times and leave you feeling stuck. My hope is that I will be able to help you through times like these. The best way to describe my approach is client centered; meaning, it is important for me to develop a genuine relationship where you feel safe to open up, no judgment, and validated. Our therapeutic journey will involve a safe space to share thoughts and feelings, hope, empowerment, self-exploration, growth promoting experiences, work outside of therapy, and I will try to throw in some fun and laughter along the way. It is also important to me that we work on what you want to work on. Early in the process we will determine goals and most of our work with be centered on those. I have worked as a therapist for 4 years and love what I do. I have experience working with adults with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, OCD, relationship struggles, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. Therapeutic theories in which I have had training and experience are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, and Family Systems Theory. Techniques I use will be based on the individual and their needs. On a personal note, I love spending time with my new baby girl and husband, biking, yoga, basketball, volleyball, and ATVing.

Life happens; the effects of loss vary; and the impacts of stress/trauma are more ‘normal’ than most people realize. You are not alone; your struggles are real; and your mental wellness is and should be treated with as much vigor as your need for food and shelter. It is natural for our bodies to want to heal themselves; and our human strength and natural behavior is to adapt and evolve. We develop negative coping skills as we adapt to stress/trauma, grief/loss, major life changes/transitions, chronic illness/pain, identity struggles, and relationship conflicts. As these behaviors can be learned through our abilities to adapt and evolve, so can they be unlearned through behavioral health and strengthening (aka counseling). I am a Certified Advanced Grief Counseling Specialist (CAGCS), a Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP), Certified in Brainspotting (BSP-C), and formally trained by the IFS Institute in Internal Family Systems (IFS) work (and will continue my journey to certification). I am independently licensed in AK, AR, ME, OR, SD, UT, and WA; and a Child Mental Health Specialist in WA. In addition to the specialties mentioned above, I also have experience and expertise in serving individuals struggling with addiction, chronic and/or terminal illness, adolescents, persons identifying as queer or LGBTQIA2S+, First Responders, Veterans, Government Personnel, Alaskan Native / Native American (AN/NA), and individuals struggling with high conflict situations. With over 23 years in the behavioral health field, I use my clients’ strengths to find natural healing, unique to their needs. I work with clients who may be struggling with trauma and loss/grief. During our initial sessions, we will delve deeply into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first few sessions and sustained improvement thereafter. I consider myself a Solution-Focused Therapist (SFT), meaning we focus on finding the strengths and solutions you already have within yourself (often a re-discovery process). I often use techniques such as strengths-based talk therapy, Brainspotting (learn more at www.brainspotting.com), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Psychoeducation; it all depends on your comfort level with each method.

I am a licensed clinician with over 20 years of experience working with multiple treatment modalities to assist both people in crisis and people seeking to improve self esteem, evaluate all types of relationships and life goals or make major life changes. I am very practical in terms of helping you to make changes and transitions in your life. My viewpoint is one of working with a person and also what surrounds that person - family, community, workplace and social life. I am also caring, warm, and open professionally to spiritual and alternative methods such as mindfulness and meditation. I am open to both video and phone sessions but not to chat or text sessions as I believe it is easy to misinterpret emotions and levels of concerns you may express via text and chat. Finding a therapist that you trust and connect with is a challenging task, it is important to me to offer the best of myself when we are working together. Over the past twenty years I have worked with people experiencing chronic and terminal illness, mental heath crisis, homelessness, PTSD, consequences of aging, and disability. I have also worked with people wanting to improve self esteem, work through family and relationship issues, and also the many internal conflicts experienced throughout the stages of life as beliefs, needs and goals change over time. I am comfortable working with LGBTQ clients and also with clients in alternative lifestyles such as polyamory, swinging and BDSM. My goal is for each client to have a space to discuss choices and needs openly in a caring and professional relationship. For all the clients who have posted reviews - I am so grateful you are a part of my life, and thank you so much for your kindness!

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 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Mendon 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 Mendon 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 84325 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 Mendon 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 Mendon 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 Mendon, 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.

Mendon 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.
