10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I started my career as a Recreation Therapist in Utah challenging individuals to do things they were scared to do but would ultimately help them grow. I took clients rock-climbing, rappelling, swimming, and canoeing, and watched them stretch themselves through each experience. I built on those aspects in my career by returning to school and getting a degree in Mental Health Counseling. That has expanded my opportunities immensely, and I've continued to use experiential activities to challenge individuals to grow. I'm a big believer in challenging you to take what we talk about, and find ways to look at life differently by giving yourself meaningful experiences. The majority of my 10 years in the mental health field has been with young adults with autism and Aspergers, which has given me deep experience in teaching relationship skills. More particularly, in my 5 years as a counselor, I've worked closely with individuals dealing with pornography and sex addiction, and have also had experience working with trauma, and mood disorders. The biggest lessons I have learned have come from my role as a father of four, and being married to my wife for over a decade. I'm a big believer in a client-centered approach, which means the client has the answers, they just need someone to help them look at their challenges with a different perspective. I am a visual learner, and use this approach in counseling however I can. While the online format doesn't allow me to stretch you through rappelling or rock-climbing, I will find ways to help you overcome the challenges keeping you from your potential. I look forward to working with you!

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Utah with nearly 10 years of experience working with a wide variety of people. I have worked with clients with anxiety, depression, problems adjusting to changes in life, addictions, and more. My therapy style is interactive and cooperative. I work to help people move toward the values they have in their lives in spite of challenges that exist in life. I believe that people suffer when they are stuck in their thoughts and believe that they are powerless to make changes in their lives, and I work to help people see how to move forward. I work with people to help them get separated from the thoughts and feelings that keep them from moving toward the things they value and help them move toward a life with more meaning.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Springville 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 Springville due to a higher cost of living.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Springville?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Springville 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.

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

A Springville 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.

With a lot of people in UT, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Springville counselor?

Before seeing your Springville 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 Springville.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy 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 Springville 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 Springville 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 with a therapist 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 therapist 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 Springville, 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.

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 during telehealth appointments?

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.
