He is trained in Biofeedback and Neurofeedback which are good tools to help clients with issues such as depression, anxiety disorders and addiction. David’s initial approach is to develop a trusting relationship with the client. He then works with the client to identify the specific issues. A treatment plan is developed to address these issues. As treatment proceeds this plan may be revised as specific issues come up. When the client completes the plan, he will be reassessed. Depending on the clients progress the client may be discharged with specific goals to work on. If there are still unresolved issues a new treatment plan will be developed and treatment continued. If there are issues that require a different approach David may refer the client to another counselor that specializes in the client’s specific issues.

Welcome, and thank you for connecting! I have 22 years of counseling experience with families, adults, and teens in community mental health. I have lived in Wyoming for 25 years, have 2 teenage children, earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of New Hampshire in 2001, and was fully licensed to begin counseling practice in WY in 2002. I have a full work history over this time with individual adults and teens, groups, couples, and families in brief and longer-term practice. I have also been a Clinical Program Supervisor, Emergency Services Counselor in clinic and hospital settings, and am a Certified Mental Health Educator and Trainer. Process counseling in grief, trauma, stress, anxiety, adjustment, communication, relationships, drug and alcohol issues, and depression have been my focus. I have trained in the Best Practices of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM). I have developed a practice that focuses on a person's strengths using Brief Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. There are many factors and layers that contribute to feeling unsteady and a desire for change. My training emphasizes understanding how our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors impact each other and how a connection to a healthy body and choices effects most everything we do. Therapy is a learning process for both of us: education, understanding, setting goals, and practice...you will want a warm, interactive, and inviting relationship with a counselor to walk through these changes with and I can provide that. ◉ Here are a few nuts and bolts about scheduling: ► You can find my schedule here on the BH platform, it is set for the month. ► The listed days and times available are issued in your time zone, as they relate to my schedule availability. See if it works for your schedule. ► If you do not see days and times that work for you, please give me a few different options that do work, I will see if I can accommodate them. ► Book a 30 minute appointment, which is all you can book. I will add an additional 30 minutes on the back end for a 50-minute hour. You may also book 30 minute sessions. ► Scheduling to meet by phone or video, at least one time each week for 4-6 weeks, is my recommendation to get started. The site allows you to book only 60 minutes per week of phone/video time. ►You have the ability to message back and forth during the week any concerns or insights. There is a journal, worksheets, and groupinars that can be great resources for education and support. ►Asking directly for interventions that you feel work for you can be helpful. I look forward to working with you…

My name is Steve Lewis and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Douglas Wyoming. I have over 14 years of experience at the Masters level. My first job out of the master's program was with an agency that had an evidence based parenting program. I currently use that program even to this day. I have seen tremendous changes in how parents parent their children after going through this program. I work with people ages 0 - 100 for any issue they may present. I got into this field because I believe that all people can change if they want to and I want to be part of that process and hope for that change. My approach in working with clients is similar to performing surgery. That means I get to the heart of the issue so that the issue is no longer there and you can experience peace and contentment. My therapeutic approach is solution-focused. People do not want to be in their struggle any longer than they have to. So I go directly to the issue and present options to overcome that issue. I also have a integrative approach which uses all the therapy styles. I believe we are all different and one approach may work on others but it may not work for you. My tool box is full and ready to be given to you. Over the years I have developed numerous concepts that I have helped hundreds of people and I would like to share them with you. Clients have indicated time after time how my concepts have changed their lives. Could they change yours? I started my own private practice named New Beginnings Counseling. I named it that because I want people not to be stuck from their past or current situation but for them to have a new beginning. To start your new beginning, contact me. Allow me to be part of your story as you find and start your new beginning.

Hello, My name is Maureen and most people call me Mo. I currently work at our local Drug Court and am the therapist for the adults in our program. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who loves to work with a variety of people. I have spent most of my carrier working with individuals struggling with substance abuse and other addictions. I am familiar with working with those who have intergenerational trauma and those who have been in or are currently in the judicial system.

Many of my past clients have described me as personable, caring, non-judgmental, and motivated to help clients by meeting them where they are at in their lives. When working with clients, the most important goal is to create a positive and trusting relationship. I like the clients to teach me who they are. I do not have a specific style per say, I try to adapt to the client's needs. I have worked with mood disorders (anxiety and depression), personality disorders, trauma, grief and loss, relationship concerns, spiritual guidance, clients who are working to gain custody of their children, abuse, and basic daily struggles. I look forward to working with you!

How to find counseling in Gillette

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

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Gillette. 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 Gillette, 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. 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 Gillette 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. They may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain. 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 Gillette area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Gillette, elsewhere in Campbell, or in the greater state of Wyoming.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Gillette 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 Gillette 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 Gillette may not take health insurance, some in the state of Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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 Gillette, Wyoming 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 Gillette 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 Gillette 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 Gillette 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 Gillette 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 Gillette 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 WY, 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 82716 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 Gillette 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 Gillette 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 Gillette, Wyoming 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.

Gillette 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.
