Excelling as a nontraditional learner, I graduated from the University of Phoenix-AZ majoring in Psychology and received her Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University-MN and is currently pursuing her Ph.D in Advanced Studies in Human Behavior fro Capella University- MN. Tiffany learned how to balance many aspects of life from being a single parent, working full-time while pursing her degrees online to the changing roles of becoming a blended family. These nontraditional roles have helped to create meaning and shared experience with clients as our roles are often changing, unexpectedly at times. While we are the experts of our own lives it is my goal to help clients balance the many challenges of life by providing a supportive and nonjudgmental environment utilizing a multi-systems approach to therapy that is as unique as each client. I have completed Level 1 of the Gottman method of couples therapy, Ienjoys working with couples to enhance and/or improve their relationships by providing a way for couples to become more in tune with themselves and each other. I take pride in working as an ally to the LGBTQ community to help overcome the challenges of being part of a marginalized population in order to affirm who you are, as a person, as well do my part to educate others.

Greetings! My name is Demitra Hahnfeld (I go by Demi). I have a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Psychology and I am an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and CRC (Certified Rehabilitation Counselor) in the state of Wisconsin. I pride myself on being someone who has “been there,” meaning, I have fought to overcome mental health challenges myself. While no two journeys are the same, it can help knowing that the professional you’re seeing isn’t just speaking from a textbook. I have spent the last four years assisting people with varying disabilities to navigate both personal and career-focused challenges. My experience is broad and ranges from anxiety, depression, and trauma, to multicultural considerations and acquired disabilities, to memory, focus, executive functioning, and beyond. My approach is eclectic, meaning I pull from different theoretical orientations and tailor my communication style to your unique needs. I will match my pace to yours. Whether you have concrete goals in mind or you aren’t sure where to start, it is my goal to provide the safe space necessary for you to grow and evolve. Ultimately, I aim for progress over perfection and learning how to grow through what you go through. I look forward to working with you on your mental wellness journey!

Let's move forward together! Sometimes we feel our life is out of control and the first thing we need to do is to identify how and why. Once we can identify how we feel our life is out of control, we can work on the why. Now we can begin to identify what we want our life to be and what we need to do to move forward toward our goals. We will work as a team and I will provide a safe, secure and non-judgemental environment for you to share and explore your world in order to develop goals and a plan to move forward. I have over thirty years of experience and am licensed in Illinois as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor(LCPC), Texas as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor(LPC-S), and Wisconsin as a Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC). Everyone is unique and the therapy must be tailored to fit the individual. I have experience working with anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, forgiveness, grief, trauma and abuse, psychosis, life transitions and addictions.

Thanks for taking a moment to read about me. I am licensed in Wisconsin with 8 years of professional work experience. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in mental health counseling, and a doctorate in counselor education and supervision. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), and Independent Clinical Supervisor (ICS). I've worked in a variety of clinical settings including correctional, outpatient, group homes, and recently volunteered as a counselor at the Salvation Army. Besides being a licensed counselor for 8 years, I have been a supervisor for over 5 years, and an adjunct instructor for a graduate counseling program since 2020. My theoretical foundation consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered, motivational interviewing, and strength-based approaches. However, I utilize what is the best fit for the individual and enjoy making adjustments to meet different individual needs. I believe 'good' therapy shouldn't feel like therapy and should feel more like a helpful conversation. I've had an interesting life that led me to be a counselor. These experiences provide me motivation to help others and a dedication to the counseling profession. I absolutely love helping people and would be honored to provide any support to those in need.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards, 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 Port Edwards 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 can also try a Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards 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 Port Edwards, 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.

Port Edwards 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.
