Welcome! Thank you for taking a minute to explore a bit about who I am. My name is Paul Deutsch and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for the past 15 years. I recently received my Doctorate of Education in Counselor Education and Supervision from Viterbo University. I have been working in a community based rural setting for my career. I have been a member of clinical teams and have been working in a solo practice for the past 4 years. I have a broad base of clinical skills with an emphasis on complex challenges like personality disorders (and related concerns like self-harm), depression, anxiety and panic, LGBTQ stressors, family dynamics and the various forms of marital conflict. My theory of practice is based in a Humanistic approach. I could be seen as a Post-modern (Solution-Focused, Narrative) but also have strong ties to interventions related to Cognitive Behavioral Theory and Radical Acceptance. I am deeply connected to the metaphysical qualities and energy work associated with our mental process, both as it relates to our relationship with our intuition and our interactions with our external worlds. These skills connected with my understanding of neuroscience and brain functionality have supported my effective use of language to develop deep and supportive rapports with my clients. I spend my time off from counseling as a Personal Trainer and Strength and Conditioning coach and have extensive training in nutrition and physical wellbeing. I also love to ski and ride fat tire bike. An additional skill set is within Business Coaching and have helped many clients improve their work lives, keep jobs or change to better ones while supporting an improved sense of self. I look forward to having the opportunity to find ways that I can support your journey. The road is hard and living a life brings suffering but these days we don't have to do that alone. Be well, Paul

Hello! My name is Amanda Falkers and have been a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing counseling services for the last 5 years. I have always been passionate to empower others and help them through life's journey. I graduated with my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Viterbo University in 2015. Since this time I decided to go back to school to receive my Doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision. I have experience working with adults, families and couples and am certified in substance use and addiction treatment. I also have experience with holistic wellness, addictions, depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD and other mental health disorders, as well as integrating overall spiritual wellness into my overall practice. I take an integrative approach to treatment focusing on building a trusting relationship first and foremost. An integrative approach is a blend of elements from different approaches and the tailoring of treatment according to each client's needs. In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and spending time outdoors in the country. It is nice to warm up with s'mores next to a nice campfire, or in the cold Winter months cuddle up with a good book or watch a movie. I am passionate about wellness and self-care. Those who know me would describe me as having an approachable personality and compassion for others.

I am licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years of experience and am currently licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, anger management, OCD, ADHD. relationship issues, parenting struggles, and trauma. I was excited to join the BetterHelp team because I believe therapy should be accessible and available to more people, without limitations and labels dictated by insurance companies. I would describe my therapy style as genuine and eclectic. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion, and while I cannot be anyone other than me, I will tailor my approach to meet the needs of the individual. I also believe that as a therapist it is my job to challenge my clients and not simply tell them what they want to hear. I believe that if we are not being challenged, we're not growing! My approach combines cognitive-behavioral (CBT), humanistic, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused, as well as mindfulness and relaxation techniques. Life is hard and I believe it is essential to have a sense of humor and find joy in the little things. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with animals on my hobby farm, gardening, listening to music, skydiving, hiking, camping, fishing, being a mom, traveling, and learning new things. It takes courage to seek help and I look forward to helping you on your journey towards becoming the best version of yourself you can be!

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.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders.

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 Wild Rose 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose, 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 54984 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose 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 Wild Rose, 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.

Wild Rose 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.
