15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Oregon and Wyoming. I’m a good fit if you want a therapist who both accepts your process when you need to talk things out, but who will also coach you in specific tools and techniques for feeling better, performing better, and flourishing. Clients tell me that they like that I balance accepting their process with patience whilst actively providing the tools for change and the push for change when needed. I specialize in applying the tools, techniques, and knowledge of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Positive Psychology to assist adults with fostering better relationships, improving quality of life, and increasing capacity for resilience in the face of setbacks and trauma. I also assist my clients to access their unique character strengths, experience more positive emotions, and deepen their sense of meaning, and engagement in their daily lives. I believe that people change and grow by developing opportunities and resources more than by merely managing problems. Treatment may assist you to identify, build, and utilize your strengths. Treatment may also help you to improve your relationships and your ability to relate to other people and to yourself. What you do outside of treatment in your daily life will be as important in fostering change and promoting healing as the work we do in our meetings. METHODS AND THERAPEUTIC ORIENTATION - DBT-informed treatment: DBT consists of the technology of change (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and the technology of acceptance (skills for building awareness, commonly referred to as "mindfulness"). - Positive Psychology: clinical tools, techniques and interventions derived from the empirical study of well-being, attachment, meaning, flourishing, resilience, and achievement. - Interpersonal Neurobiology: Many clients find it easier to understand skills for managing stress, emotions, addictions, and relationships when these are explained within the context of the brain works; you might find it easier to relate to therapy when it is explained in terms of the brain and the nervous system. - EMDR: EMDR promotes the efficient and safe processing of disturbing memories and emotions. Effective counseling depends on the quality of the relationship that a counselor establishes with you. As a counselor, I commit to the following: to seek to understand your perspective; listen for your most important concerns; accept you without judgement; respect your freedom and autonomy; follow you in determining the goals of your recovery; honor your ideas, your timing, and your pace of change especially when you have moments of doubt and indecision.

14 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Career and work issues are two of my primary areas of emphasis, helping people who want to stay in their present job with its difficulties, make a decision to leave and how to prepare for it, or even explore a different career and/or educational path--with all the emotions those things can evoke. Relationships, which are so important can be affected by these issues and a host of others. Many of those with problems in either area that seemed overwhelming began by talking about them and when ready took small steps that in themselves brightened their outlook on the future and eventually led to improved outcomes. My mission is to see the world through your eyes, to pose questions to help clarify how you see that world, and to always be in your corner whatever you decide. What I will do consistently is listen intently without judgment, show sincere empathy, look for and validate strengths, do collaborative problem solving, and even share some humor along the way. I find that these practices help good solutions rise to the top. My name is Eric Levine. I’m a licensed Counselor based in Washington State having worked 12 years in the field of counseling after earning my Masters specializing in Counseling Psychology at UCLA. Like many counselors my preference is to work with people in person. But since remote counseling has come to the fore (even more so after the pandemic hit) I find the next best mode is talking on the phone which brings with it a sense of "presence," along with inflection, emphasis, feeling tones, humor, and most importantly the ability to immediately clear up any misunderstandings with the sensitivity of the spoken word. In that regard I’ve been told I have a very calm and pleasant voice that I owe to my father, a newscaster whose warm emotionality came right through the radio, even more so to those of us around him. After a fairly long career in education and counseling programs, I seek to return through this venue to a similar position I held in a university setting where I was able to work individually with students, staff, and administrators, young and old. The shared openness involved was something I could never take for granted, the life stories amazing in themselves.

In 2019, I retired from a local Law Enforcement agency where I provided crisis intervention services to the community. It was a remarkable 20-year career helping people on "the worst day of my life." Many of those calls for service included assisting individuals and families dealing with mental illness, addiction, domestic violence, sex crimes, child and elder abuse/neglect, and death-related situations (natural, suicide, homicide, and accidental). I learned three things; people are incredibly resilient, desperate to be heard, and open to options when respect and trust exist. My ideal client meets all three. I offer in-home and telehealth counseling. My work and personal history lend themselves well to assist many individuals and families. In addition, I have a particular interest in working with First Responders, both sworn and civilian. If you are interested in speaking with an open-minded, culturally competent, and creative solutions therapist, please reach out with your inquiry or interest. I welcome challenging, complicated, and creative content issues. Thank you. I look forward to assisting you!

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a special emphasis in neuropsychology and forensic psychology. I am licensed in the states of Colorado, Iowa, and Washington, and I have worked in it for the past 15 years. In the time I have practiced in Colorado and Iowa, I worked with patients with depressive and anxiety symptoms, using an approach to assist patients in identifying their current methods of exacerbating emotional problems, such as constant verbalization of their worries. An approach that helps patients select methods of reducing depressive and anxiety symptoms from their brainstorm-generated alternatives. A modality that challenges patients' thoughts and transforms rational concerns into overpowering and irresolvable conflicts. A modality that has given the power to patients to see life through different lenses while empathizing with them; most of these patients are with depressive and anxiety symptoms. Through this modality, patients are assisted in understanding the negative functional consequences of their psychological maladies, and how these maladies are perpetuating self-defeating behaviors, such as social withdrawal, disturbed family and interpersonal relationships. An approach that has helped patients select a few methods of reducing depressive and anxiety symptoms through brainstorm-generated alternatives. An approach that has been used to challenge patients' thoughts and transform rational concerns into overpowering and irresolvable conflicts. Also, I have worked with adolescent and adult patients with serious and persistent mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. I was able to assess and help those patients with traumatic brain injury, neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, and all forms of dementias. I have also used several neuropsychological assessments in diagnosing depression, anxiety, traumatic brain injury, and all forms of dementias. Additionally, I have worked with family members to perform capacity evaluations and the completion of a statement of expert evaluation forms for competency hearings. It is important that one recognizes when help is needed to subdue life's challenges. And it is laudable when one actually takes the steps to confront those life's challenges. It is laudable because, in today's society, it is difficult to get to that stage. Thank you for recognizing what it takes to get well emotionally. I am looking forward to serving you.

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

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

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

Buckley 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 Buckley 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 Buckley 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 WA, therapists 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 98321 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Buckley 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 Buckley.

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 Buckley 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 Buckley 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 Buckley, Washington 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.

Buckley 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.
