Berlin, Wisconsin was the home of Native Americans before it was settled by people from Scotland, Wales, Poland, and Italy. Berlin straddles the Fox River for miles, making it rich in natural resources and the perfect environment for its rich cranberry industry. Much like Berlin, it can be difficult to straddle all of life’s events with joy and contentment.

Like the variety of people who settled in Berlin, your life can be rich again when you match with a professional counselor in the Berlin area to help you tap into the richness of your internal resources.

My counseling values: understanding personal/family/extended family relationships & dynamics, professional work/home life balance, active listening, non-judgmental, insight-oriented, finding meaning/purpose in life.

Schneider, Ph.D., LPC Compassionate Counseling Since 1977 PS Please be reminded that I am mandated to report any/all suspected abuse to children, adults, or other vulnerable persons. Also, please note that using a phone app or connecting from a vehicle usually leads to technical difficulties. Google Chrome is the preferred and most reliable means to ensure continuity of care. Also, ensure any, and all, applications, e.g., Zoom, Skype, PhotoBooth, Google Hangouts or any other websites are closed; as these may interfere with the video connection. Couples Therapy: Please indicate if you are meeting with individual therapists for any reason. Driving: I do not provide services while one is driving. Time zones: All appointments are scheduled for Eastern Time What is Counseling? Counseling is a process. Counselors are professionals who chose their vocation because they care about individuals' safety and wellbeing, are empathic listeners, continue their professional development, and want to help. What does a counselor actually do and how can they help me? • Counselors serve as neutral party who listen, create a safe place to dialogue, and make every effort to understand and guide without judgment. • Counselors encourage one to learn about themselves and offer honest/challenging feedback. • Counselors teach/suggest techniques and strategies to assist with discovering ways to approach life's challenges. • Counselors can refer one to additional resources that may be helpful. • Counselors provide a safe place to learn/practice social skills and enhance personal development. What are the limitations of counseling? • Counselors should not tell you what to do or try to direct your life. Think of the proverb: 'Give them a fish, and you feed them for a day. Teach them to fish, and you feed them for life.' • Counselors guide one to learn to identify and resolve one's own challenges, rather than solving them for them. • Some mental health challenges cannot be managed by counseling alone. So, a medication consult may be suggested. • Benefiting from counseling does require work between counseling sessions. Complete homework, practice skills, and make efforts to try the recommendations that are offered. • Counselors cannot be your friend after starting a therapeutic relationship. Counselors generally make every effort to get to know them better. However, ethical principles prevent the formation of relationships outside of treatment. • Counselors trust in the therapeutic relationship resulting in reasonable outcomes. • Counselors encourage questions, concerns, and clarifications at any time during the counseling process.

Hello , I and Donna and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Wisconsin. I have over 20 years of experience working in the mental health field. I started working in a residential facility for adolescents then moved on to intensive in-home therapy with individual adults, parents and children, and with teens and children in our local schools. I have never been one to practice with in the traditional framework, so meeting online is an extension of meeting people where they may feel the most comfortable. Therapy is a collaboration between people, I have expertise in the therapeutic process, and you are the expert on you. The most important ingredient of therapy is building the safe and secure relationship. People heal and grow the best in the context of supportive relationships. I offer education on the brain/nervous system mechanisms, which are intended to keep us safe (fight, flight and freeze,)but after a trauma or chronic stress become over activated. This often leads to feelings of anxiety, depression and feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Learning how this mechanism drives our behaviors, thoughts, and feelings gives us all he power to change. I believe in treating the whole person; body,mind and soul. To accomplish this I use methods for expressive arts, yoga, and cognitive behavioral models. I look forward to connecting with you!

About Me My Name is Connie Champion. I am very passionate about my work as I love to see clients reach their personal goals. My methodology is to use solution focused therapy to support clients in making positive changes. Solution focus is a future-oriented, goal-directed approach to assist in solving problems in our daily lives through use of strengths, skills, readily available resources, and coping tools; a technique I try to utilize in myself. I am fond of this therapy because change is a constantly evolving concept that should always be considered within one’s reach. Those who seek help inherently want change and clients are experts of the change they are seeking. My approach utilizes a steady source of positive motivation rooted in highly organized planning tailored to my client’s specific needs. I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals and couples ranging in ages from 6-65. In the last 10 years, I have narrowed down my therapeutic style to match my own personality while leaving the door open to additional honing which my education and work experiences consistently provide opportunities for.

How to find counseling in Berlin

Finding the best therapist close by in Berlin can feel challenging, but know that once you narrow your search for a counselor serving your area, you can find a therapist in your city that is accepting new clients and fits your goals. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Berlin. 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 Berlin, 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 Berlin 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Berlin area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Berlin, elsewhere in Green Lake, or in the greater state of Wisconsin.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Berlin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin may not take health insurance, some in the state of Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Berlin, Wisconsin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin 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 WI, 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 54923 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 Berlin 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 Berlin 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 Berlin, 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.

Berlin 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.
