Life can be like a river. It can be calm and provide you with the resources you need to live a good life, or it can be raging or hard to navigate. Your inner river can be determined by how you feel. Depression, anxiety, or any life problem can make your river harder to navigate. Luckily, there is a solution. A counselor based in South Jordan. 

South Jordan is named after the gorgeous Jordan River. Your life can be as pretty as this river, but you must sort out your issues. A counselor based in South Jordan can help you do just that.

Have you been overwhelmed with anxiety, feeling down, lacking motivation or self-confidence? Many of my clients find themselves on edge, irritable, at the end of their rope. Often, they struggle to see their own worth, burdened with negative core beliefs and memories of their past. They’ve felt like they haven’t had control in their life for far too long. They’re exhausted, burnt out, and don’t know where else to turn. They are humans having human reactions to this wild ride called life. My clients are adults (18+) who thrive with online therapy. They are looking for help with their problems and want to see someone from the comfort of their own homes. Because Capital City Counseling is fully telehealth, I am licensed and able to serve individuals living in the states of Louisiana, Nevada, or Utah. My professional experience in the field of mental health has afforded me an opportunity to impact hundreds of lives. This experience has also impacted yours truly (me). I am experienced and comfortable with a broad range of issues including depression, anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief, family conflict, addiction, self-esteem, chronic relapse, traumatic brain injury, anger management, gambling, parenting, infidelity, ADHD, sexual abuse, domestic violence, self-harming, oppositional defiance, coping skills, impulsivity, spirituality, bipolar disorder, suicidal ideation, personality disorders, dual diagnosis, emotional disturbance, relationship issues, divorce behavioral issues, codependency, racial identity, trauma and PTSD, and stress. I specialize in treating maternal and postpartum mental health issues, trauma recovery, and the unique issues marginalized individuals and individuals within the BIPOC communities face. I believe in the inherent ability of everyone to heal and grow when provided the appropriate opportunity. My approach is honoring, kind, and forthright to enable you to feel safe, not judged, and make the progress you desire on your path to enhanced well-being. My strengths lie in helping you negotiate and sort through the complicated choices, transitions & challenges life presents. You’ve already taken that first step, and I’m proud of you. I hold space for each client no matter their background, gender, size, age, race, religion, income, career, culture, sexual orientation, abilities, or disabilities. If you are ready to heal what has held you back, process what you've been avoiding, and resolve the issues that life has thrown your way; then, I am ready to walk beside and guide you on your journey. I provide a non-judgmental, safe, and supportive setting in which to move forward. Encouraging you to explore the internal landscape of your own life, holding you accountable in our work together, and holding space for you to experience your emotions.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, and I have been practicing Mental Health and Addiction Therapy for the past 18 years. I specialize in providing healing to those who struggle with Substance Use, Depression, Bipolar, and Anxiety (specifically OCD, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder both with and without Agoraphobia). I also have experience with grief and loss, physical trauma, emotional abuse, and relationship conflicts. My counseling style embraces empathy, compassion, mindfulness, and empowerment. Patient Centered Therapy is one of my main therapeutic approaches, as it takes into account each person's own preferences, needs, and values before making any treatment decisions. My theoretical approach utilizes coping skills and techniques from both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Rational Emotive Therapy. The Practice of Mindfulness plays a significant role in my counseling style and approach as well. Mindfulness is very effective in calming the mind and freeing it from anxiety. It is a safe, effective healing therapy that provides long lasting positive changes. When we believe we are given more than we can handle, the next step is to begin the journey of healing. With healing comes self-confidence, well-being, freedom to control our thoughts and emotions, and to understand our purpose. It would be a privilege to enter into the journey of healing with you. As you begin the healing walk on the way of your journey, the healing way appears - Kyra Dawn Delcambre, LCMHC

It is my goal to help you identify these events, and help my clients move through them.

How to find counseling in South Jordan

Finding the best therapist close by in South Jordan can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in South Jordan. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. 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 South Jordan, 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. 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 South Jordan 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater South Jordan area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of South Jordan, elsewhere in Salt Lake, or in the greater state of Utah.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan, 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 84095 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan 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 South Jordan, 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.

South Jordan 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.
