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.

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.

I enjoy working with many types of people and assisting them in the challenges they are facing. My specialties are the areas of trauma and interpersonal violence, including the secondary effects, such as anxiety, depression, anger, relationship/trust issues, self-medicating, and stagnation. I use a wide range of approaches in working with my clients, meaning that I like to employ many different therapeutic styles in sessions. I approach issues honestly, openly, and directly. I have been described as warm, genuine, easy to talk to, and dedicated. I holistically view every client. Rather than asking, "what's wrong with you?" I ask, "what have you been through?" The effects of trauma and grief/loss can wreak havoc on lives and often cause anxiety, depression, mood dysregulation, relationship/Intimacy issues, and many other problems. The good news is there is hope, and I am delighted that you are ready to take the journey towards healing. I use multiple evidence-based treatments, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); Brainspotting, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness/Zen, TBRI and other modalities to best suit each client and their individual needs. Together we will tailor a plan that works for you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

You can also try a Riverdale 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 Riverdale 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.

Riverdale therapists 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 Riverdale therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Riverdale 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 Riverdale 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 Riverdale.

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 Riverdale 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 Riverdale, 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.

Riverdale 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.
