certified in connecticut where i live and then tell you what else is…Betterhelp German… required to be a much better health therapist so to become licensed you require a graduate degree in one of a handful of areas so you could have a psychology phd or a master’s degree in scientific social work or marital relationship and family treatment or expert therapy and after that as soon as you have your graduate degree you need 3 000 hours of direct customer experience while you are being monitored by an expert who holds the license you’re seeking and you require a minimum of a hundred hours of guidance with this individual in which you go over how you are supplying therapy to your customers so usually attaining this many clinical hours and this much guidance most likely averages around three or 4 years of experience to get the medical hours to even then sit for the composed exam and then you sit for the written exam and then if you pass you get accredited so that’s what’s required to be certified as a psychotherapist in connecticut and after that if you wish to work for better help you need a minimum of 3 years of experience after you have actually been certified so you are absolutely not getting interns on better help you’re getting a therapist with an academic degree a solid number of clinical hours and a minimum of 3 years of experience after they have actually been licensed so there’s a preferred video on youtube which slams better help therapists and calls them lay counselors which is just not true and the reason she calls them late therapists i want to talk about that briefly is she states one they don’t recommend medication and two they do not handle court orders so let me attend to those 2 things since in the u.s as a psychotherapist you can not recommend medication unless you also happen to be an md or an lprn the only individuals in the united states who can recommend medical doctors or psychiatric medications could be your general practitioner or a psychiatrist Betterhelp German
or a licensed expert nurse who’s had specific training in psychiatric medications so those are the only 2 types of people who can prescribe medication the large bulk of psychotherapists do not prescribe medication due to the fact that they do not hold those other degrees and where i live extremely really couple of psychiatrists also do treatment most psychiatrists focus on prescribing the medication and leave the treatment to the psychotherapists so that is not a valid criticism and then the second criticism that they do not deal with court orders i will tell you in my own private practice i actually tried to avoid dealing with court orders and i will share with you why the majority of the time what would take place is i would get a call from someone who would be in a panic asking to have 5 sessions in a week because they had to go to court next week and they were attempting to fulfill the requirement that they had gotten probably five or six months ago now i understand that this takes place i really do however that’s not actually therapy that’s in fact doing something to please a court order and it’s not the type of work i ever did and probably for most court-ordered therapy there are community agencies that can offer that type of treatment in a more reliable way so i just wished to resolve those 2 criticisms because i don’t feel they stand so before i share with you this little technique on the website for better help in terms of having the ability to discover somebody in your own area that you resonate with i ‘d like to say two things one is that the fit between you and a therapist is super crucial and the design of a therapist makes a big difference how comfy you feel with them how safe you feel with them and you might go to somebody who has an extremely costly rate at a private practice and still not be happy with the therapist right i’ve had customers who’ve come to me after seeing somebody in my area where they were paying a high private practice rate and they come into my office and they ‘d say my previous therapist not did anything but discuss herself well that’s not appropriate so if that takes place to you either with a private practice or a neighborhood agency or on better help switch therapists and if a therapist ever does something egregious you can report it to the state licensing board so absolutely the quality of the therapist differs no matter what their training or background and you need to discover somebody who’s a great fit for you and really one of the

advantages i feel of the much better health platform is that you have this capability to quickly change therapists so there’s some accountability in that because obviously if better help has a therapist and individuals are constantly switching away from that individual they get that feedback right if you go to somebody in a private practice what do you tell and after that it’s really difficult to find evaluations unless you get an individual recommendation to a private practice therapist so i do believe that’s sort of an advantage of the better help platform that you can read reviews you can write a review you can supply feedback and you can change therapists if you need to so prior to i show you how you can go onto the betterhelp platform and pick a therapist who resonates for you in your location however i do have a link below this video that supplies you with 10 off your very first month i am an affiliate of better help i am not a therapist on the platform and i no longer take on psychotherapy clients just as an fyi due to the fact that i get that concern a lot however i connected with them since people all over the nation and in fact all over the world contact me routinely to say that they don’t have access to psychological health services so better help provide service in 140 various countries 40 different languages i remain in alignment with their mission so there is a link listed below this video that will give you 10 percent off your very first month so if you go to the betterhelp.com website you truly don’t get the choice up here to put your zip code in and see what therapists are available you have to scroll all the way to the bottom and you’ll see here find a therapist so you can put in any city in the united states i’m going to choose baltimore maryland i don’t live there
i do not understand any therapists there however i’m just going to try it and you will get an entire host of therapists and you can have a look and again i don’t know these individuals i’m not promoting them in any way i’m simply revealing you how you can screen to see who the therapists are that are readily available in your location prior to signing up and after that if you actually liked this therapist or state here dr veronica wanza she concentrates on stress anxiety lgbt relationship issues trauma and abuse Betterhelp German
