Thank you for visiting my profile! It takes strength to realize that you need help or guidance in your life. The truth is, we all need it at times! My name is Ashley Widmayer. I am a licensed mental health and substance abuse counselor in the state of Wisconsin. Over the past 14 years, I have worked with people suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction, and the stress of life change and transitions. I have spent time working in a number of settings, including community mental health/ addiction clinics, Hospital-based addiction treatment (ResidentiaI, Partial Hospital, Intensive Outpatient), College Counseling Center, and a group Private Practice. I am a primary referral resource for local college students dealing with a variety of issues from daily stress/anxiety to more serious addiction or mood disorders. I have experience working with clients ages 13- to 80-years-old. I love to work with adolescents, young adults, and the young at heart! I have trained in Motivational Enhancement, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and related approaches (ACT, DBT). I like to focus on developing your strengths to deal with issues, while providing compassion, humor, and advice when needed. I do not focus on diagnoses, but rather focus on the whole person, life, and situation. As a unique individual, your treatment and goals will be tailored to your needs and preferences. A little to know about me: I am a proud Aunt. I am a very dedicated Mama/Servant to cats and a dog. I love the outdoors (walking, hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking), trying to be active, yoga, mindfulness practices, laughing, listening to true crime podcasts, reading sci-fi/fantasy novels, napping, cooking and eating. My availability for live sessions can vary, so if you are interested in having a live session, let me know when you would like to schedule. I look forward to working with you!

Hello, and welcome! My name is Leora and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Wisconsin. I am passionate about helping people meet their goals and live happier, more fulfilled lives. I believe we all deserve to be who we truly are, and sometimes we need help to harness the bravery to live authentically. I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQIA+ and poly communities. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I understand that having an identity that differs from the societal norm can make seeking treatment feel especially daunting. My clients enjoy a truly non-judgmental space to cultivate the strength to become a prouder version of their authentic selves. Many of my clients describe sessions with me as relaxed and not overly clinical, while still being extremely effective. The issues I am most experienced in treating include anxiety, depression, OCD, intrusive thoughts, gender dysphoria, low self-esteem, body image issues, trauma, PTSD, and relationship boundary issues. I primarily use well-researched Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness therapies. I believe that being open about our mental health and seeking help when we need it is one of the most noble things a person can do. Taking care of your mental health doesn't just benefit you, it benefits everyone who knows and cares about you as well! Congratulations on your bravery in taking the first step. I know how important it is that you can count on regular responses from your counselor. I respond to messages at least once per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. I am currently offering messaging and Live Chat. If you would prefer video or phone, please select a different therapist. Thank you!

Welcome and congratulations in taking the first step to attaining your goals. My name is Theresa Weise and I have been a mental health and substance abuse counselor for over 10 years. My current role is working with college students, but I also have worked in the community with individuals from ages 14-75. My counseling theory is that each person is the best expert of their life, but sometimes life disconnects us from that. That is where I can come in to assist you in reconnecting to that knowledge. In my practice I have assisted individuals struggling with: depression, anxiety, trauma, LGBTQ concerns, self confidence and overall life satisfaction. The counseling modalities I most frequently use are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Client Centered. I have a very relational approach and utilize mindfulness to assist in gaining peace and tapping into ones own intuition. I look forward in assisting you in making the smallest or greatest changes in your life to reach your dreams.

I strongly believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can drive progress. My education was based on a cognitive-behavioral approach which I still apply in my work with clients today. I will work collaboratively with you to identify and set realistic goals to strive for.

Hello! If you are here to explore BetterHelp, you are probably looking for support. I'm glad you're here. I know it is important to feel comfortable and to be able to trust your counselor, especially when you're working through personal or difficult things. Let me tell you a bit about myself to help you decide if we will be a good fit. I have been providing counseling for over 10 years as a social worker, and have enjoyed working with many different people in a variety of situations. Some of the people I have worked with have had challenges that they never thought they could handle or work through. Typical feedback I get from my clients is that I am approachable, trustworthy, compassionate and direct in my counseling. I feel I have the ability to get a sense of where you are in your life, your struggles and where you want to end up. It's a challenging world out there and if you work with me, I want you to feel that you can trust me as I support you in this process, because feeling emotionally safe is highly important. I have daytime, evening and weekend appointment availability. We can interact over video, chat or email, depending on your preference. On the days when I don't have appointments with you, I do check my messages regularly. I feel that maintaining a strong connection through the therapy process is also highly important. If you feel that we would be a good fit in counseling, I encourage you to schedule an appointment. It would be an honor to work with you through this time in your life and I hope you feel empowered by taking this first step.

How to find counseling in Coleman

Finding the best therapist close by in Coleman 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 Coleman. 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 Coleman, 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 Coleman 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.

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman, 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 54112 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 Coleman 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 Coleman 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 Coleman, 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.

Coleman 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.
