How To Choose A Therapist in Asheville NC?

If you live in Asheville NC or the surrounding area and you are looking for a therapist, the most important question to ask yourself is what you want to get out of therapy. That answer may be simple as, “I want to feel better,” but sharing that with a would-be therapist will help both parties find out if it’s a good fit. Take time to understand what environment you feel the most comfortable in and what accessibility you have to a prospective therapist.

Once you have narrowed it down to just a therapists that you are interested in, set up a phone consultation with each one of the potential therapists. These calls will help you discover things like like availability, cost, and how many therapy sessions to expect, but most importantly these calls will help you determine if you feel comfortable with a specific therapist. While on the call think about these questions:

  1. Do you feel like you can talk to this person?
  2. Do you feel like you can be honest?
  3. Does it feel like this person accepts you?
  4. Are they a good listener?
  5. Will they customize their approach for you?

IL – LCPC, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

As a counselor, it is an honor to come alongside you in your story, and assist you in figuring out the next chapter and the overall arca of where you want it to go based on the values that are most important to you. Together we will work to identify places where you have become stuck, or perhaps where you have become your own worst enemy, and over time I will help you develop a fresh perspective of your identity and new skills for tackling the problems of life.

I have a MS in Community Mental Health Counseling from Western Carolina University, eight years’ experience working in community mental health settings, and 20 years’ experience of leadership in various church settings such as Celebrate Recovery, teaching marriage enrichment conferences and classes, and facilitating men’s groups. I have a passion for helping individuals and couples sort through relational and emotional conflicts. I have experience helping people overcome addictions related to alcohol, drugs, pornography and sex. I have walked alongside people who struggle through job and life transitions, and grieving losses while finding hope.
