More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 16

Hello. My name is Goldie Marker Oakes, Licensed Professional Counselor, and I look forward to working with you. My professional clinical career began in 2006 providing treatment in the mental health field. My primary therapeutic modality includes a strong but eclectic therapeutic modality that incorporates a strong clinical perspective using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. If you are comfortable with this approach, I also use a holistic and Christian perspective using Mindfulness and Relaxation Therapy, prayer and scripture. My goal as your therapist is too help you find peace, joy, and happiness in life. My job is to help you learn how to overcome your life events, emotions and experiences that have caused you problems functioning normally, relating to others, or even finding motivation to continue on your life's path. My professional experience with both includes clinical approach with a Christian mindset that includes:

• treating clinical concerns such as anxiety, social anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, and other clinical concerns.

• relationships

• self-image, self-esteem, and efficacy

• anger management and self-harm behaviors and impulse control

My therapeutic approach often incorporates homework such as reading Christian literature or specific scripture, journal and self-reflective writing and practice of specific CBT and DBT strategies outside the clinical setting, at home, and in the community, all of which supports your growth and progress. My goal is for your growth to be internal as you move towards defining or redefining your relationship with Christ. This means a great deal of your progress requires your need to periodically evaluate your own progress through self-evaluation and self-reflection, in addition to my own clinical assessments with your progress.

My goal as a counselor is to help you find peace, joy, and happiness in life as you learn to overcome those things in your life that have caused a loss of functioning individually or within the family dynamic. This path is not always an easy one; however, God promises us that we Never have to travel that path alone.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Goldie is very supportive, getting me to prioritize my thoughts.

S.C.·May 25, 2021

Overall

I like Goldie. She says what she thinks and is not afraid to use her life experience to solve issues. She's good at providing feedback and playing devil's advocate. She's also good at being present and discussing what arises in the moment. I signed up for better help for a lot of reasons that have actually not been the topic of discussion thus far. But in a roundabout way they are related. Goldie is not afraid to take these scenic routes. For me, it works.

Goldie Oakes is an amazing counselor. She helps me talk through my issues in a way that leaves me feeling confident and better prepared to take on my issues. She is very supportive and knowledgeable. She has helped take me out of a dark time in my life and continues to perform excellently. She takes the extra time to address my concerns through texts and I always leave our video sessions feeling renewed with positive energy.

M.A.·Mar 08, 2021

Overall

Goldie has been phenomenal. Not only do I feel heard and seen by her, I also feel loved and accepted. She is so easy to talk to and yet also very professional. She can be both blunt and gentle at the same time. And she gives very creative "homework" for the week that are actually helpful and makes me feel like I'm progressing even on my own from session to session.

C.O.·Mar 04, 2021

Overall

Goldie takes in all the information you give her and then makes an honest assessment of where you are. I feel very comfortable relaying my struggles with her. She makes you feel like the more you open up, the more she can help you. She listens and then asks probing questions that really make you think about what you're saying.

S.A.·Feb 18, 2021

Overall

Goldie was a pleasure to work with! She challenged me and encouraged me in various ways. Our first session I felt truly listened to and that she had paid close attention to things I was saying in order to ensure that our time together would be well spent! Throughout our time together she made me feel supported and gave me incredibly helpful feedback and goals for me to do throughout the week in between sessions. Would definitely recommend her!

I like Goldie's demeanor. First, she is a good listener. Key to success. Second, she says what needs to be said calmly and then, allows the statement to have the impact. She does not try to make the impact. She is wise and kind. By the end of the session, her kindness and acceptance, along with her wisdom helps to encourage and motivate. Thank you.

Goldie is nothing shy of amazing!! She listens, cares, supports, helps, understands and is so nice and realistic. Every time I talk with her, I feel better. She's given me so many tools and so much knowledge. Talking to her is like talking to a long time friend or a family member. After our first session, I felt so much more hopeful and I still do after each session. She also replies in a very timely manner. She has changed my life, for sure!

Goldie is an exceptional therapist. In my life, I've spoken to many therapists and counselors and Goldie, in our short time working together, has proven to be among the very best. Not only is Goldie timely and responsible with her replies, she genuinely cares and puts a tremendous amount of effort in her feedback. I highly recommend to anyone who seeks an active partnership with their therapist.

Goldie is everything a counselor should be. She makes it easy for even the most guarded to be vulnerable and safe with her. She takes me to task, but only in the kindest and gentlest way. I’ve had a few counselors over the years, but none like Goldie.

I am happy with services!

J.E.·Aug 11, 2020

Goldie’s approach is very welcoming and professional. I feel heard and seen whenever we talk and always leave a session feeling lighter and adequately equipped to take the next steps. After just one meeting, I felt like I could breathe again and like I could get through anything. Thank you, Goldie!

S.H.·Aug 07, 2020

Overall

She is a wonderful counselor; because she listens to the client's reason why they came to counseling. She also helps you to overcome issues with the goals that she sets; and she is very understanding of why someone feels a certain way.

M.I.·Aug 05, 2020

Overall

Working with Goldie this first month has been a pleasure. She listens well and puts to words the feelings that I sometimes struggle phrasing. I think the tips and activities she has had me do are super practical and things that can become a useful habit to continue even after our time together. It has been an overall positive experience thanks to her.

K.A.·Aug 05, 2020

Overall

So far I’ve been enjoying my counseling sessions and my messaging with Goldie. There is something about her where she listens thoughtfully and doesn’t interrupt when I speak. She has this deep understanding of what I’m going through without me having to backtrack very far. And she mirrors my words well so I can take time to reflect (if that makes sense). Her counseling has helped me keep a calmer mind and learn that counseling is a tool in my bag but not something I should use a crutch or a band-aid. I love how I can grow while having her counseling support me. I will continue to have Goldie as my counselor as I continue to work on myself and how I interact in my relationships.

J.O.·Aug 05, 2020

Ms. Goldie Oakes have been continuously checking on me much as possible she offers great advice thank you so much you are the best!

S.H.·Aug 04, 2020

Overall

Goldie is WONDERFUL. I've had two sessions with her so far, and they've been life-changing, significantly for the better. She has a strong sense of understanding of the issues I struggle with, and her guidance has helped me work through my issues with understanding, solution discovery, and empowerment. Goldie's compassion and her regular follow up gives me the sense that this role is a calling for her, more than just a profession. I greatly value her wisdom, care, and accountability. Thank you Goldie!

H.A.·Aug 04, 2020
