An ideal client is one who is being just who they are in spite of all the challenges or concerns they may be dealing with. I have weekend and some evening hours. I work as a counselor and as an instructor for SUDC students at CVTC. I have a masters degree in counseling from the University of Iowa and am credentialed with a LPC and CSAC in Wisconsin. I work with persons who have issues related to emotional well-being, whether mental health, adjustment related, substance-use related, or couple's issues. I have worked in a private practice setting for 12 years. I have experience with emergency work at a ER (primary suicidal assessments). I have worked in substance use disorder agencies (hospitals and clinics, inpatient and outpatient, small non-profit and a few which are profit-based). I have extensive work with employee assistance counseling. I have also worked with clients with correctional issues. Getting to understand what one is going through is a priority. Developing a working alliance with that person is essential. Patient empowerment and collaborative problem solving are cued in on.

24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello…and thank you for taking that difficult first step by viewing my profile! My name is Lyn and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Wisconsin. During my 23 years of clinical practice, I have worked with a variety of clients presenting with issues from depression and anxiety to childhood neglect/abuse, PTSD and grief. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, my expertise is working with individuals who experience trauma in their lives. What is trauma? "Trauma is the psychological, emotional (and physical) response to an event or an experience that is deeply distressing or disturbing to the individual." Sometimes trauma is related to just one event, such as losing your house in a fire or the sudden loss of a loved one. Other times, trauma can cast a long shadow over our lives, such as childhood abuse or prolonged exposure to events out of our control. My therapeutic approach stems from the core belief you are the expert of your own life and our time together is a partnership. My role as therapist is to guide, assist and occasionally challenge you in that healing process. My style is grounded in Client-Centered and Humanistic models though I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I am comfortable using many adjunctive therapies, as well. Personally, I am a mother, grandmother, yoga enthusiast, hiker, friend, sister, retired Director and active therapist. I am honest, compassionate, progressive and disciplined. I am recently semi-retired though I love this work and that is how I found BetterHelp. My years of experience have shown me the relationship between therapist and client is the key to therapeutic success. If you don’t like your therapist, you won’t do the work. So, I am honored you might consider trusting me as a partner in your journey. “Today I Chose Courage over Comfort” – Brene Brown

My therapeutic philosophy is that it's not what is wrong with you but what happened to you. I believe that symptoms like anxiety and depression are not signs of weakness but messages to our mind and body telling us that something is not right and needs to be addressed. Maladaptive ways of coping may have once served us by dulling stress or pain but are not working any more, and so we have to learn new, healthier, more adaptive coping skills. I believe both the body and mind work together and are ultimately designed to survive, heal and thrive. Sometimes we just need understanding, validation and support to navigate the process. I love to help clients and empower them to help themselves. I understand how important it is to find a counselor you can connect with; one that is caring, respectful and skillful. I have had my own therapy during my life and approach clients the way I wanted to be treated.I can relate to clients that have attempted therapy more than once and are frustrated and tired. I understand what that is like and commend you for trying again. Change can be scary but often less scary than staying stuck. Seeking out counseling takes a lot of courage and strength. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over five years of experience working with clients with various concerns including Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Assertiveness/Boundaries, Attachment Issues and Emotional,Sexual and Physical Abuse. Being a more mature counselor brings with it life experience, insight and knowledge; at the same time I am flexible, open and always seeking emerging therapeutic approaches. I believe in treating clients as individuals that have unique strengths and resiliencies and do not fit neatly into diagnostic categories. My counseling style is warm, approachable and authentic. I relate to clients with compassion, non-judgment and empathy. My approach is eclectic and tailored to meet clients where they are at. I practice through a trauma-informed lens and use modalities such as Solution-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioral, Brainspotting, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems, Existential, Spiritual, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Somatic therapy. I will work with you to find the best treatment approach that meets your specific needs and goals. I consider it an honor to collaborate with clients in pursuit of their well-being. If you are ready to take a step I am here to support you.

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 in Friesland that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Friesland. 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 Friesland, 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 in the Friesland region and in the state of Wisconsin. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Friesland or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. 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 Friesland area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Friesland 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 Friesland 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 Friesland 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 a BetterHelp therapist 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). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

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

Friesland 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 Friesland 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 Friesland 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 53935 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Friesland 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 Friesland.

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 Friesland 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 Friesland 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 Friesland, 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.

Friesland 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.
