Named after an uphill, rocky slope of land nearby, Rocky Mount, Virginia is a rural place that played a major part in shaping America’s early history. Booker T. Washington was born a slave in the same county but after being emancipated, became the greatest African American leader and educator of his time. This didn’t happen without struggle and sacrifice.

So it is with our lives. Although stress, depression, and other mental health issues may lay as heavy burdens on our heart and minds, there is nothing that we can’t overcome. There are several professional counselors in the Rocky Mount area who would love to help you with this process if you are willing to reach out today.

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I was a career Paramedic/Firefighter before going to graduate school. This is part of why working with first responders is one of my passions and my primary area of expertise. I completed my Masters in Counseling at Old Dominion University in 2009. I am licensed by the Virginia Board of Counseling as a Licensed Professional Counselor. My primary areas of counseling are in traumatic stress, professional burnout, and compassion fatigue. I also provide counseling in couples counseling, family issues, occupational issues, life stressors, general depression, general anxiety, etc. I understand that the world is not made of perfect scenarios and not everything in treatment is going to work idealistically the first time. I see my role as a counselor as being that I help you learn the knowledge and skills to help yourself. I adapt my counseling style to my client's needs, so I will use a mix of REBT, CBT, Person-Centered, Gestalt, and Adlerian, among various other theories and methods, as needed to meet each specific individual's needs. I use these theoretical approaches together with integrative medical health, meaning that we will explore others areas of life that effect mental health, such as exercise, nutrition, sleep, etc., and may include recommendations for consult and follow up with professionals in these areas. I do not typically limit my counseling practice to any specific age or population, nor do I typically limit what issues I will help a client with in counseling, but I do use a lot of cognitive approaches that requires a level of maturity where the client is willing and able to think critically, self-reflect, and understand the interactions between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and actions. Many of my clients are people that previously had difficulty finding comfort with other counselors, so I have over the years learned to appreciate and enjoy working with people who have started losing faith in the benefits of counseling. While being at a distance does change some details on how things are done, the my counseling approach via distance counseling platforms (such as BetterHelp) is the same as the counseling I provide in-person; my clients here get the same level of dedicated service that my in-person clients receive.

7 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi! My name is Robin Carver. I have been a licensed clinical social worker, LCSW since 2002. I come to this position with varied professional experiences. I completed an internship at a domestic violence shelter, provided intensive, in-home counseling to families for 1.5 years, worked on a mental health unit at a local hospital providing discharge planning, group work and conducted suicide assessments for 6 years. I spent 4.5 years working in a Therapeutic Day Treatment Program at both a middle school and elementary school (5 yo-18 yo), in which I offered a minimum of one hour of therapeutic intervention and support to children/adolescents, on a daily basis. I was in a supervisory role for the TDT Program and a School Based Outpatient Counseling Program for the last 11 years, supervising clinicians in these positions and providing supervision for their LPS/LCSW licensure. I also supervised an Intensive Care Coordination program, one of the most intensive therapeutic services available for youth, for the last 2 years. These numerous experiences have helped me to grow in my professional development immensely as well as provided me with varied opportunities to develop and strengthen my clinical skills. I feel that building a strong and trusting relationship is the foundation to a successful therapeutic experience. Hence, that is the focus of my work, finding a way to join with you where you are in life. Being warm, kind, accepting, non-judgmental, listening and reflecting are core principles I utilize in counseling. Once a trusting relationship has been established, I will begin working with you to find strategies that will work to alleviate the various symptoms you may be experiencing. I find it extremely rewarding to help you identify your strengths and values, teach you coping skills and strategies to assist you in overcoming challenging situations in a positive way and being there for you in times of need. Sometimes, you just need a person to trust, someone who will listen to you, someone to be with you in your most difficult moments. I am humbled to have this opportunity and cherish each and every person with whom I have the opportunity to work. I believe that everyone is unique, strong and resilient and I enjoy being able to walk beside you in your journey of self-growth. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you! Warmly, Robin

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Rocky Mount 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.

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

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

Before seeing your Rocky Mount 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 Rocky Mount.

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 Rocky Mount 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 Rocky Mount 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 Rocky Mount, Virginia 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.

Rocky Mount 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 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.
