Do You Need A Mentor/Therapist?

Do you need a Psychologist, Psychiatrist, or a Life Counselor? or maybe a CBT (cognitive behavioral) Therapist?

What do psychologists treat?

  • They research your condition and provide treatment recommendations
  • Provide therapies and tools that may help your condition
  • They often work with a psychiatrist to get prescription treatments (if needed)

Ultimately, choosing between a psychologist, psychiatrist or another type of therapist depends on your needs and overall goals. Any type of mental health professional can help you establish and achieve therapy goals.

What do therapists like myself treat?

  • Gaining a big picture of your life and mental/emotional cycles and patterns.
  • Helping you discuss your feelings and address them in a constructive way
  • Guiding you through healthy decision-making processes to where you feel solid and sure in your choices and decisions in life
  • Using talk therapy techniques that usually surprise you as to what comes up
  • Employing critical thinking — logic and reasoning skills that will go far in the creation of your future outside of any therapy — is the ultimate goal
  • Providing the LGBTQ+ communities with couples council, as well as individual Transgender counsel on all things trans for FTM and MTF since my partner is. I have great insight into male, female, lesbian, trans conditions, and situations pertaining to HRT therapy, sexual reassignment surgeries, and the challenges that come with those.
  • I employ other supportive avenues of information for my clients while they are not with me to cause further learning and insights and questions they find they need more information on. After all, life does not happen on demand or by a pre-determined future time. My clients have permission to text me when something critical pops up — while it is happening, as that is the best time to learn how to respond and deal with things because we tend to forget details by the time our therapy appointment rolls around. It isn’t for every situation or all the time, of course, I wouldn’t humanely have time for every text from every client on a consistent basis so there are guidelines, of course, out of necessity.
    Emergencies are another story and are handled quite differently.

WHAT ABOUT DEGREES AND DOCTORATES? IS an Associates Degree or simply CERTIFICATION ENOUGH?

Counseling and therapy can be costly, yet I have made it affordable where I can and also will soon offer a self-help course that goes hand in hand and is a one-time fee.
