21 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Mental Health Therapist for over 20 years. I earned my masters in social work at the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2002. Since I live in a rural area with little access to mental health services; I have had the opportunity to work with all populations. I have been the most effective in assisting those who experience depression, anxiety (including related diagnoses like OCD and sleep disorders) , and relationship problems (unhealthy and abusive relationships, parenting, and couples counseling). I have worked in all levels of care from psychiatric inpatient, to group homes, crisis centers, and outpatient counseling. A large portion of my work has been in the child welfare system and juvenile system. I have worked with abused and neglected children as well as their parents. I have many military veterans in my life. My family has navigated the VA disability process and I have many ideas to share in order to help clients involved with the VA. I practice through the lens of trauma-informed care and consider the whole person; not just individual symptoms. My approach is eclectic and client-driven. I will assist you in formulating a treatment plan that will be ever adapting to your current needs. My friends describe me as "The most approachable person in the room." I know how hard is it to seek support and I never make people feel judged or minimize their experiences. Helping people help themselves is my passion. I like the Better Help platform because people can often feel stuck and unable to take the multiple steps needed to seek counseling in a traditional office setting. Online counseling removes many of the barriers that keep people from seeking support. I have had anxious clients who started out with messaging and slowly moved to phone and video as they felt more comfortable. I have been with Better Help for 4 years. I started 1/2020 as the pandemic was starting up and I had the opportunity to work with clients all over the world and see how they were being affected by the illness and local rules and regulations meant to mitigate the spread. I still have three of those clients who started in 2020. It has been very nice to see their progress over a long period of time. I am looking forward to assisting you in meeting your potential and helping improve your daily quality of life! You have taken the first step. Let's get started.

Hello, my name is Sarah Isaack and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wyoming and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Idaho. I would like to provide you with some information about myself so you can determine if I am a good fit for your counseling needs. I have two dogs named Solstice and Sam in addition to a Cockatoo named Pinkerton. I am currently married and have lived in Wyoming most of my life. I enjoy reading, walking in nature, and gardening for self-care, and I am extremely passionate about helping others help themselves. I have been both a substance and mental health counselor for over 9 years and have a degree in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. I have vast experience working with a variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, burnout, self-esteem, self-identity, and life purpose. I also have experience working with trauma, addictions, and relationships. I have worked with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults in all types of settings ranging from outpatient therapy to residential treatment. My passion is helping clients help themselves so they can become the best version of themselves. I believe individuals should be in control of their sessions and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. I understand how uncomfortable it can be to self-disclose to a stranger as I have been in counseling myself which is why I try to provide a nonjudgmental place to explore counseling issues. I have a strong theoretical counseling orientation with Person-Centered Therapy which focuses on creating a safe and non-judgmental environment. I am also a big fan of Solution-Focused Therapy which focuses on helping individuals create meaningful life goals. At times I will use Existentialism which focuses on the meaning of life. Although I have certain preferences for theoretical orientations, I often use an eclectic counseling approach to individualize treatment for clients. I am passionate about helping others and believe empathy is the key to successful counseling relationships. There will be times I will gently challenge clients in sessions, but I aim to do so in a respectful manner that isn't insulting. I look forward to working with you and hope you will enjoy working with me!

It is my belief, and my experience supports, that a strong client/therapist relationship is absolutely essential. My approach to treatment varies, depending on the issues that a client comes in with. This may include Client-Centered Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy and Solution-.Focused Therapy. Of all of the clients I have worked with, teenagers have been a challenge and the ones I seem to have a passion for. Much of my experience has focused on depression, anxiety and grief and loss. I can also provide Faith-Based Therapy if that meets the clients needs. I am a strong advocate for the utilization of exercise and eating well and can provide psychoeducation in this area. I have a passion for working with people to help them obtain success in living their lives to the fullest. I fully understand that being attached to the right therapist is essential and that it may take time to find that right fit.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Lovell 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 Lovell 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:

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

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

Lovell 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 Lovell 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 Lovell 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Lovell counselor?

Before seeing your Lovell 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 Lovell.

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 Lovell 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 Lovell 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 Lovell, 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.

Lovell 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.
