Hi, I look forward to meeting you. I truly believe all people are amazing and I’ve focused my life work towards psychology, human behavior and data analysis. I have more than 20 years of experience serving people who struggle with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, addiction, turama, anger management, ADHD, OCD, ASD, grief, hospice, and many other mental and behavioral problems. I am not new to living and learning or growing. I am familiar with pain.....although I know I dislike pain , in fact I often declare that “I’m allergic to pain because I know I don’t like it “, however I have learned that it is through pain I’ve actually gained the most happiness and peace. I am a professional with dual licenses.....a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed behavior analyst ......who started out professionally as a computer system analyst. Because of my own pain, experiences and education I’ve become more and more into Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) therapy a fairly recent Cognitive Behavioral Approach......it’s something I’ve found has severed me well and has been the most useful to others I’ve been blessed to engage with on our journey here. When we are able to notice our own discomfort we are more motivated to make effective and meaningful changes in our behaviors that will lead us to a more meaningful and joyful life. Growing pains are part of the process but can lead us to growth and the ability to identify and focus on what we, our own self knows is true for us.....what we value (self as context). My goal is to help you recognize what your pain is trying to tell you, discover what strategies can help you live through that pain....anxiety, depression....by increasing your behaviors of copping......mindfulness, focus ........ that will serve you and increase your psychological flexibility. I will often use the ACT Matrix to help “sort “ things out as a tool on our journey together. I would be delighted to take this journey with you and I look forward to meeting you and learning more about what you would like to achieve.

Welcome to my Profile! My name is Pamela J. Lane, MEd, LPC-S, but please feel free to call me Pam. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Texas and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Utah (LCMHC). I have well over 25 years of experience with diverse populations in the mental health field working with adults of all ages and adolescents. My history includes having extensive experience working with a myriad of mental health and behavior challenges in adolescent, adult, and special needs populations. As such, I have counseled closely with many individuals that suffer from Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and many other personality, behavior and relationship challenges through the multitude of life's transitions. I am happy to make myself available to help answer your questions and advise you of some ways of handling the challenges in your life or in understanding those around you. I can guide and advise you as to what coping skills and strategies may help regarding your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors, in order for you to reach your goals or manage your everyday world. I describe my counseling style as “Talk Therapy” with an easy to talk to presence. I believe that the connection of the way we “think” and “perceive” situations can be changed through rational/reality-based information. However, I am very eclectic in my manner of counseling and treat each person as unique with unique life experiences and circumstances. I have recently been trained in EMDR Therapy which can help greatly when a person’s history includes past trauma, abuse, or phobias. Let me help you decipher your needs & guide you in navigating the transitions in your life. On a personal note, as a mental health professional, I have more likely than not… heard it all and have seen most things. I would be honored to make myself available to visit and work with any person who would feel comfortable working with me on any (well, most) any challenge or life transition. With Regards, Pam NOTES FOR THE FOLLOWING POTENTIAL CLIENTS LGBTQ CLIENTS: While I am not a member of the LGBTQ Community, I am an ally! CHRISTIAN BASED CLIENTS: While I am a Christian, I do not specifically practice “Faith Based Counseling”.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders.

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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Midvale or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, 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 Midvale area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale, 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 84047 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 Midvale 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 Midvale 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 Midvale, 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.

Midvale 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.
