20 years of experience

As a therapist I have 20+ yrs. of experience in finding solutions to life's changes and challenges that often result in anxiety, depression and stress. I work collaboratively with individuals to build upon existing strengths to overcome obstacles. I want for others what they want for themselves; to be both content and happy in life. My approach to therapy is collaborative and straightforward with honest communication. I bring kindness, compassion, and humor to the counseling process and work from a strengths-based perspective to help you explore issues interfering with your happiness, relationships, or feeling good about yourself or your life. Depending on what you are looking for I'll draw from a variety of theories in our work together including: -Psychodynamic - Exploring how childhood experiences are affecting current relationships and behaviors. -Humanistic Perspective- This is a holistic perspective that attributes human characteristics and actions to free will and an innate drive for self-actualization. -Gottman Method - A research-supported therapy for conflict resolution. -Solution Focused Therapy - Helping you to begin to make changes in the direction you'd like your life to be going in. -Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- This is a solution-focused approach to treatment, oriented toward solving problems and learning skills, helping clients overcome their difficulties by changing their thinking, behavior, and emotional responses. I am so looking forward to meeting and working with you!

I am a licensed mental health counselor located in Washington with over 7 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, mood disorder, relationship issues. I have extensive experience working with individuals diagnosed with PTSD, mostly due to childhood trauma and abuse. As a counselor, I provide a peaceful and compassionate presence, while enthusiastically facilitating the discovery of inner wisdom and strength needed to move forward. My work is grounded in client-centered therapy and keen understanding of human relationships. Relationships connect us to ourselves and others, and the quality of these connections greatly impacts overall sense of well-being and ability to meet life’s challenges gracefully. I believe that we are most likely to consider change in life when we feel understood and supported and my goal is to provide that understanding and support. My own story has taught me the benefits of transparency, vulnerability, and safe place to explore and ask tough questions. I have extensive experience working with individual who, in a desperate attempt to gain control over their life and overwhelming emotions, often resort to behaviors which can actually make things worse. This often takes them even further from their life worth living. In my therapeutic work, I strive to make a therapeutic alliance with clients, and together we develop a treatment plan that meets their needs and where individuals with recovery as their goal make real changes with actual improvement that can be measured and monitored. With open/honest and direct communication, we work to identify and overcome barriers and improve their life one step at a time. I look forward working with you.

Hi – I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State and a National Certified Counselor. While I have an MS in clinical psychology, I also have a BA in business administration, having managed companies for many years. It took a while but I finally got around to honoring an inner calling to become a therapist, which is a privilege and very rewarding. While I’m experienced in treating a variety of challenges, I specialize in working with anxiety and mood related conditions, grief/loss, and unresolved trauma. I also work with clients experiencing interpersonal conflict, parenting concerns, career related stressors, and stage of life angst. My counseling approach is client-centered and honors a person’s unique nature and needs. Depending on the challenges at hand, this may involve teaching coping skills that help reduce immediate symptoms; insights-based work to discover how our life experiences shape and form us; and developing behaviors that help people transition from suffering to focusing on what they find important and meaningful. Our inner drive for happiness and capacity for growth moves me. You may not feel particularly resilient right now, but do know that reaching out for help demonstrates courage and strength. I look forward to meeting and talking with you. Be assured that I’m personable by nature, engage openly and respectfully, and aim to walk alongside you on your journey!

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: 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!

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 Lind, 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 Lind 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind, 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 Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind 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. 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 99341 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 Lind 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 Lind 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 Lind, 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.

Lind 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.
