15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a mental health counselor in WV and NC. I love working in the helping field. I have 15 years experience with School Counseling, Mental Health Counseling and Substance Abuse Counseling. I have done everything from running treatment centers for addiction, to providing case management support for people with Schizophrenia. I have worked with 100's of clients, and each story is inspiring and incredible. The resiliency I see in the people I work with just proves how powerful the human spirit can be. Some other personal things about me, I am also a dance instructor. I love to tap and learn new forms of music. My friends call me a searcher, because I am always wondering about science and space or how the universe ebbs and flows. I enjoy reading nonfiction books mostly, typically about how a person has experience trauma and came out the other side to help others. I am currently working as a School Counselor in WV, but I missed the clinical aspect of my career. So, I am using this online platform to provide counseling to those who may not have access to transportation or just prefer the online experience. I am comfortable working with you if you have experienced trauma, have depression, anxiety, bipolar dx, ADHD, adjusting to a new situation, relationship issues, LGBTQA, addiction, etc. All clients are welcome. I'm very excited to start working with you.

10 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Louisiana and West Virginia. I have nine years of experience working in the mental health field, specifically with counseling for the past five years. I have experience working with clients dealing with a vast array of issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, stress, abuse, trauma, addictions, emotional instability, career, relationship, and parenting issues. I use an eclectic approach to counseling, which means I use several different therapeutic approaches according to the needs of my client. Three approaches I use most often are derived from cognitive behavioral, solutions focused, and rational emotive. I provide individual, couples, and family counseling in order to help facilitate change, healing, and restoration. My ideal client is one who is struggling in life and willing to be open and honest. Every person has a story made up of different experiences that impact who you are. As your counselor I want to listen to you and learn about your experiences, so I can help you reach your goals and become the best version of yourself. Counseling is similar to life in that it is not always easy and painless, but as your counselor I will be here to support and walk alongside you in this journey. I want you to know that where you are now does not have to be where you stay, and that you are worth it! I’d like to give you a brief overview of myself and experience. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Psychology in 2012 from Concord University in Athens, WV, at which point I began working as an in-home counselor for children and families involved with child services and/or the court system due to behavioral issues. After a year in that setting, I began pursuing my master's degree in clinical mental health counseling through Regent University. While pursuing my degree, I worked as a case manager for physically and developmentally disabled clients, and then I transitioned to a private practice setting for my internship. Since graduation in 2016, I have counseled patients in a mental health inpatient/outpatient facility, and then juveniles in a group home and detention setting. While I enjoyed the experience gained from both of those settings, in 2018, I decided to go back to private practice; I love the flexibility, the atmosphere, and ability to work with couples, which I am very passionate about. Also, client care is my priority. Through the years, I have acquired experience counseling individuals as young as six years old, couples, families, and groups. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am here for you whenever you are ready. I look forward to hearing from you, and I welcome any questions or concerns you may have about this process.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Marmet region and in the state of West Virginia. 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 Marmet 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.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Marmet 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 Marmet due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Marmet 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 Marmet 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 Marmet 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 WV, 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 25315 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 Marmet counselor?

Before seeing your Marmet 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 Marmet.

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 Marmet 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 Marmet 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 Marmet, West Virginia 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.

Marmet 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.
