Hello and welcome to Betterhelp! I know seeking additional support can be intimidating initially. I hope if you chose to work with me, I will be able to meet you where you are and provide reassurance and support as we go through this process.
Allow me to introduce myself to you. I have been working within the field of social work for 13 years with populations ranging from infancy to late adulthood. Upon completion of my graduate program in 2015, I geared my focus to outpatient adult individual/group/family mental health counseling. I have and continue to work alongside those who are experiencing significant life changes, depression and anxiety. I have also supported survivors of trauma (domestic violence) and those who are experiencing grief and loss of any kind.
It is my hope to provide you with a non-judgmental, safe place for you to explore challenges, strengths, and your goals. When we work together, we will explore the most suitable therapeutic approach based on your specific needs/desires for treatment. A few treatment modalities I utilize include solution-focused, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness.
On this platform, I am happy to interact within all methods offered on the platform, that you find comfort in-phone, text, and live chat My availability is limited and sessions will be scheduled with messaging.

You will get out what you put in. Mandy is supportive and understanding of my goals and where I am in my process. I am finding a lot of validation and clarity through her guidance. It is still early in my process, but I see this helping me stay on track with my goals and stress management
