What this means, is that I have worked with people at various points in their mental health journey. My counseling style is warm, compassionate, and supportive, but I will also challenge you to grow. I will meet you where are you at, actively listen to you, and help you set and achieve the goals that are important to you. I utilize several approaches in my practice, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness, journaling, and positive psychology. It can be hard to reach out and seek help and I commend you for taking the first steps to make positive changes in your life.

Hello, my name is Tracy Faust and I have been practicing Psychotherapy with those of nearly all ages for over twenty years. I earned my Master of Arts from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI in 2000 and have been full time in the field ever since.

For over six years following that, I worked with children and families providing in-home psychotherapy, both individually with the identified client as well as family-based with parents and siblings. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you, and hope to hear from you soon!

Hello! My name is Thomas Kaufman, and I am an LPC working out of Madison, WI. For the past 20 years, I have worked with families, couples, adults, and adolescents. Using cognitive-behavioral theory with narrative techniques, I help empower clients to explore areas within their lives that present challenges and inhibit change, and assist them with finding solutions that will work for them. However, I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is a vital component within any program, which means that I believe that any work needs to be collaborative between myself and my clients. I am certified to deliver trauma-focused treatments as well as providing services to help manage stress and anxiety.

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

After more than 20 years in the counseling fields as a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in Wisconsin, my approach to collaborating with clients has a two-fold approach. First, I believe in a holistic approach. Almost every problem we experience has various pieces. Somewhat like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the pieces need to be laid out and evaluated to see the relationships among them to come up with solutions. This includes the present moment, our upbringing, our current employment, our own relationships, stresses past and present, any traumatic experiences we’ve had, etc. My second approach flows from the first belief in a holistic treatment. I encourage clients to develop a SANE lifestyle. Evidenced research shows a direct link among the elements of Sleep, Activities, Nutrition, and Exercise to our physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I embody what I encourage others to do. I also believe the path to wholeness lies within each of us and through the experience of heartfelt conversations we find that power within to bring about our own healing.

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

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

Barneveld 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 Barneveld 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 Barneveld 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 WI, 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 53507 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Barneveld 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 Barneveld.

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 Barneveld 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 Barneveld 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 Barneveld, Wisconsin 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.

Barneveld 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.
