I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) since 2018. I counseled the previous 2 years at a Limited License Professional Counselor (LLPC) at Par Rehabilitation. I worked and learned under Todd Westfall as an LLPC. I stayed on at Par for nearly 2 years after earning my LPC . I have since moved on to Fountain of Wisdom and Hope and A New Day Counseling. Since starting to counsel, I have worked with individuals with employment cases, depression, anxiety, autism, visually impaired, bi-polar and schizophrenia. I have worked in the disability environment my entire life. I have worked in direct care group homes, Hope Network, Community Mental Health and Harris Development Center. I have experience in case management of disability claims, Michigan Rehabilitation Services, SSI/SSDI claims with the Social Security Administration, short-term disability claims with Sedgwick CMS. Another area that I have experience in is with the Lansing Public School system. I worked as a special education assistant working with special education students and at-risk students. At age 18 I suffered a traumatic brain injury and had to overcome nearly all of life's obstacles to not only to become independent but to educate myself in the midst of living with the effects of a traumatic brain injury . So that experience gives me a unique perspective of how a client feels living with a disability and having the knowledge and information learned and used as a professional counselor. I appreciate you spending time reading my profile if you feel my education, life experiences and work experiences could help you get to where you want to go please give me a call. Thank You Charlie Rose

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. 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 advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Michigan can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
