My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgmental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You are not alone; allow me to be there for you. As a psychotherapist I am trained in working with individuals, as well as groups to help them manage a range of psychological and emotional issues ranging from anxiety disorders to psychosis. Having completed my MSc in Counseling Psychology and Psychotherapy, I am capable of understanding inner conflicts as well as addressing each person’s thought process, feelings and behavior with respect, sensitivity and empathy. During these years, I have learned how to work with issues of diversity in different settings, as well as how to deal with crisis or conflict. I have worked in settings such as mental health hospital, college setting, worked with the unemployed population, as well as the incarcerated. I hold an LPC license from Wisconsin as well as Illinois, and I am a Licensed Clinical Hypnotherapist . My counseling style is warm and empathetic, and I am highly influencedby the existential/humanistic approach, while incorporating brain-based techniques.

My name is Vanessa Blanchette and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Wisconsin. I have over been working in the mental health field for over 15 years. I have counseled in various settings- first as a Crisis Counselor, then as therapist at the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, and now as an outpatient counselor/therapist and Clinical Director of an outpatient clinic in Green Bay, Wisconsin for the past 5 years. My approach is simple- to provide a safe space and non-judgmental environment for clients to bring their stories to. In order to do this, I bring many approaches to sessions with individuals, couples, and families because I believe that everyone's story is unique and each person deserves to have a safe space to share it. I incorporate a combination of different therapies & theoretical approaches, including existential therapy, mindfulness & Buddhist inspired psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioral therapy, & attachment theory. I believe that humor and genuine empathy are also important tools that are helpful in a world that can often feel unfriendly, uncaring, & at times, to serious. My most recent trainings include trauma certification CTTP, Brainspotting, EMDR, and mindfulness trainings. I feel very honored to have clients trust me with their stories and I look forward to sharing your journey with you!

Welcome! My name is Toni Morgan-Jones and I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Wisconsin. I have over 23 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, mood instability, trauma, relationship difficulties, grief and loss. I also have experience working with clients and their families that are dealing with persistent mental illness (psychosis and schizophrenia). I have work in private outpatient clinics, county based mental health services, and integrated services programs (CCS/CST/CSP). I have worked in large urban areas (Madison and Milwaukee) as well as small rural Wisconsin communities. In my practice I use different interventions depending on what works best including solution focused, narrative, cognitive behavioral, rational emotive, and humanistic. It has been my experience that many clients have been significantly shaped by events that are either outside of their control or have always felt outside of their control. These events significantly impact how a person views themselves and the world around them. I have worked with many brave individuals that have allowed me to be a part of their exploration of these experiences and the impact they have had on them emotionally and psychologically. It takes strength to face the hurts of the present and past to start the journey of healing. I look forward to working with you on this journey towards health, wellness, and happiness.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah, 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 54646 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 Necedah 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 Necedah 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 Necedah, 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.

Necedah 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.
