Are you finding yourself stuck in the middle? Don't know whether to go right or left? Up or down? It's natural to go through hard times when you have a hard time moving ahead, but an equally hard time looking behind. Eloy is a town that's all too familiar with the notion of being put in the middle. Equidistant between Tucson and Phoenix, Eloy is a popular halfway point between these two Arizona cities.

If you're feeling a little stuck, Eloy-area therapists are available to give you some mental health help, and a little boost so you can choose exactly which way you need to go.

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Arizona. I have worked in behavioral health for about 15 years, and have been a counselor for 7. I've helped people who have extensive and complex trauma, depression, relationship issues, loneliness and all kinds of other issues. One of my areas of extra training in is working with for are people who have been sex trafficked, and I have worked with survivors of sex trafficking. I believe in treating clients with empathy and respect. I feel a solemn obligation to be a safe outlet to clients so they can share deep hurts if they need to. I don't believe in judging or critiquing other people's pasts. I also don't push. I believe in letting people steer their sessions and set their own pace. Some clients do better with forward focused therapies with little focus on the past and I can provide that. Some clients feel a need to look at the past to figure it out and I can help you do that too. I am trauma informed and trained/experienced with EMDR, DBT, ACT, MI, CBT, and brief strategic therapy. **Please note, my calendar is always in Arizona time. If it says otherwise, just ignore that. I live in Arizona and have never bothered to memorize when my time zone matches MST or not.**

Hello! My name Is Natalie Knight and I am an LCSW who is passionate about utilizing the strength of the therapeutic alliance as a support to enter into an exploration of what is beckoning for our attention at any given moment. I believe once we learn how to meet our emotions that we can clear ourselves of old past traumas or new anxieties and fears that are inhibiting us from being the best versions of ourselves that we are longing for. In a nutshell I work to help my clients identify and then let go of old habits and ways of being that no long serve them and help guide them in the allowing process of letting new ways of being that are more healthy in. Together I begin to assist the client with untangling the knots of beliefs that have held them back from truly knowing the peace and contentment. I have been doing this work for the past eight years professionally. I use a person-centered approach in my counseling practice which emphasizes that the client is the best authority for his/her own life and that the answers to his/her questions are inside of them. I serve as a mirror to reflect to the client the inherent knowing. I also rely strongly on EMDR as a modality to help client with the root of their traumas and held beliefs that cover the growth that they are desiring most. This process has been quite effective for me in my search for understanding and I hope to be able to share it with others who feel called to this type of work with me as well.

Hi there! My name is Mike and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Utah. I obtained my Master's in Social Work from University of Southern California. I have worked as a social worker for over 8 years with families and individuals in community, outpatient, and inpatient settings. A lot of the work I've done has been extensively with individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and LGBTQ+ issues. My approach leans heavily on CBT, solution-focused, and strengths-based modalities, which helps me to empower clients and help them to feel more at ease in a setting that can typically feel uncomfortable. I have a genuine passion to help others work towards their best self. I consider myself a very approachable and down-to-earth person and therapist, and I pride myself on being able to make sessions feel as inviting, friendly, and fulfilling as possible. When not working, I am often trying to keep myself busy by playing video games with my son, going to rock concerts, or watching any movies or TV shows that can make me laugh.

I welcome you and commend you for seeking help as I know it can be challenging to do so. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan, having graduated from Western Michigan University with a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have 6 years experience as a therapist. I am also a husband and a father of 3. I have a love for the outdoors and learning new things. I am also an avid fan of hard rock music. I would describe therapy as an organic process, much like a relationship. As with any relationship it takes time to develop and requires honesty and vulnerability on behalf of both parties in order to grow. It can be hard to take that first step and ask for help. My focus is to meet you where you are in your journey and support you as you face life's challenges. I am here to work with you to aid in greater self awareness, utilize strengths to solve problems and discover hope. The process of change can be both challenging and rewarding. I am excited to have the privilege to join you on your path and help you discover the next steps.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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 Eloy 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 Eloy 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 AZ, 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 85193 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 Eloy 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 Eloy 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 Eloy, Arizona 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.

Eloy 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.
