I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. I have been providing therapy services for 5 years. I have experience working a variety of individuals from various walks of life with a variety of challenges and presentations, such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, mood swings/bipolar symptoms, relationship/family challenges, personality disorders, communication challenges, grief/loss, and much more. Another area of experience I have is working with clients who have traumatic experiences, and supporting them in managing and reducing the impact of those experiences on their daily lives. My approach to treatment is from a place of warmth and acceptance. My intention is for you to feel comfortable building trust with me, knowing that you will be welcomed into a non-judgmental atmosphere where we will work as a partnership to meet your goals. When beginning therapy, my approach is to provide support by learning about you from a biopsychosocial model, identifying how your biological, psychological, and social factors have impacted you to create the person you are today. From there, I use a range of interventions to support you in managing and reducing the challenges you are currently experiencing; Trauma Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, techniques from Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Strength's Based Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness Therapy. During our partnership, we will identify a plan together to help you become a healthier, happier you. I look forward to our time together and helping you become the person you have always wanted.

I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, depression, & coping with life changes. My approach is holistic, strength based, and person centered. I offer adult and teen therapy. I believe that when someone feels safe, growth can occur and my goal in our sessions is to meet you where you’re at and help you achieve your goals.

Within the structure of the therapeutic relationship I will help you access your inner strengths and promote change. In my free time I love to hike, play in nature, paint and sing loudly in the privacy of my car. I have always had a passion for the human mind and how we all interact in this big world.

My world view is flexible and my understanding is strong concerning multicultural issues in clinical practice. As confident as I am of my acumen, being able to communicate when things aren't working, and then offering to refer the client to another professional who may be able to better aid them makes me a good, self-aware and humble counselor As for my theoretical orientation, I have a fondness for Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which has its merits working with substance abuse patients. However, Person Centered Theory (PCT) and Narrative Theory (NT) are what I perceive will be using with my clientele as follows: My PCT approach would attend to the natural potential to self-actualize. I would focus on building a therapeutic alliance through the tenets - genuineness, unconditional positive regard, empathy – from which will serve to create an environment of safety, growth and discovery of the person s/he is to become. Through my NT approach, I would elicit the stories or narratives s/he uses to inform and organize their sense of reality and explore how those stories describe and shape their perspectives on their past, present, and future. I would take into consideration how culture influences their stories. I would pay keen attention to detail being left out (the omissions) of their problem-saturated stories. Sessions would focus on re-authoring their singular story to establish (or, at least, consider) alternatives and options to their stories.

How to find counseling in Othello

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 Othello, 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 Othello 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 Othello area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Othello 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 Othello 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 Othello 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 Othello, 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 Othello 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 Othello 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 Othello 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 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 Othello 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 Othello 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 99344 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 Othello 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 Othello 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 Othello, 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.

Othello 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.
