Hello! My name is Sarah and I have been a licensed mental health counselor since 2003. I have also held many titles such as a certified thanatologist (grief and loss), clinical supervisor, and clinic director. I have worked in many settings besides private practice, including community mental health settings where I often worked with the chronically mentally ill, drug court where I worked together with substance use counselors to help people with addiction, and marital counseling centers where I taught communication skills to couples. I have treated clients who have struggled with depression, anxiety, relationship, and/or family issues, phase of life issues, grief and loss, and I have worked with many adult children of alcoholics and the challenge of low self esteem. Asking for help takes a lot of courage, and you should be proud of yourself getting to this point of choosing the right counselor for yourself. I strive to be a safe place for my clients, that they know that they are never judged, only given positive regard and encouragement. I am an interactive therapist, often looking for those "blind spots" my clients can't see are not in their best interest, and bringing them to light so my client can have those"light bulb" moments of new insight into themselves. I often remind my clients in the beginning that change in therapy is not a "drive through" fix, and it takes a commitment from both the client and the counselor to achieve the goals, outcomes, and change the client is wanting. My approach is very eclectic, learning with years of experience, that different clients learn in different ways. I tend towards the cognitive behavioral, Adlerian, (feelings create thoughts, thoughts create beliefs, and beliefs create belief systems) and psycho-dynamic approaches. I am flexible in my approaches knowing that some clients need a more coaching kind of approach with lots of cheer leading, while others need a more nurturing and gentle approach. I look forward to building a therapeutic alliance and relationship with you !

A little bit about me: I am a licensed therapist living in the mountains of Utah. Along with being a therapist, I'm a Guide and Educator. In the winter months I teach Avalanche Education and also work as a Mountain Guide taking people in what we call the "Backcountry". I love spending time in the outdoors and I have utilized this setting for many years as part of my therapy work. My private practice is called "Walk & Talk"; and my website is: walkandtalkhelp.weebly.com. I have worked with adolescents, families, and adult individuals of all ages and ethnicities for over over 10 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, addictions, grief, self worth, and ADHD. My therapy style is compassionate, empathetic and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and acceptance; and I believe that the only thing we can really change in life is our attitude and how we deal with the issues that are confronting us. It is my belief that many humans struggle with issues of self esteem in one way or the other, and yet we are all worthy of living a healthy and content life. My therapeutic approach combines many different modalities, with the key being that you the client are capable of leading your own healing path. I believe it is you the client that dictates the kind of approach needed for moving forward in your own healing process. This healing path will not have you out there on your own, and some of therapeutic processes I incorporate into my sessions utilize cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy . We will work together, and our dialog will help in determining the specific treatment plan to meet your personal needs. Everyone deserves to wake up each day and look forward to what that days has to offer, and find a new sense of enjoyment within themselves and those around you. If you have a desire to bring more joy and contentment into your life, I welcome you to invite me into your journey. I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Harrington 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 Harrington 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 Harrington may not take health insurance, some in the state of Washington 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 Washington 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 Harrington, Washington 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 Harrington 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.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Harrington 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.

You can also try a Harrington 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 Harrington 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 WA, providers may be booked out with clients.

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 Harrington 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 Harrington 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 Harrington, 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.

Harrington 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.
