Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here! My name is Casey and as a licensed therapist in the state of Pennsylvania, my job here is to provide online counseling through the BetterHelp platform. I am board certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NCC). I started my career in the mental health field in 2009 when I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in psychology and criminal justice and started as a Therapeutic Staff Support. I have worked as a Crisis Intervention Specialist in an emergency room setting since 2014 assessing and providing care to patients who are experiencing crisis situations. I graduated with my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have been a counselor since 2015 in the emergency room, outpatient and residential treatment settings. I have experience working with a variety of clients including children and adults with a vast variety of mental health needs including conduct disorder, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, PTSD, bi-polar, adjustment disorder, and more. I have helped clients through life transitions, adjustment issues, relationship issues, parenting, trauma, grief, abuse and more. I have experience providing individual, family, and group counseling services, as well as, crisis intervention. My goal is to help people in their desire to close the gap between where they are right now and where they want to be in the future, with the support of individualized therapy sessions. I typically utilize cognitive behavioral therapy to help my clients focus on connecting thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I want to help people understand how thoughts, behaviors, and emotions relate and influence one another to restructure thinking in an attempt to develop healthier thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. I utilize motivational interviewing skills as well to help clients resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find motivation to change behaviors. I work from a strengths-based approach in which I focus on a client’s strengths, resiliency, and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. I like starting and focusing on a positive mindset to help clients change their worldview to one that is more positive. I aspire to utilize my experience to help make a valuable contribution to others by promoting mental health through service, advocacy, and education. I strive to aide clients in developing mood stability and safety to live their best life. I am happy you have reached out for some assistance. It takes a lot of courage and motivation to reach out for additional support. I am here to listen, respond, and support you through reaching your personal or professional goals. Together, I believe we can reach both long-term and short-term goals through the client-therapist relationship!

It has helped me so much just knowing that Casey is "there" when I need her. She works with my schedule and is open to all the means of communication within BetterHelp. She always tells me just what I need to hear to feel motivated and confident again.
Casey is an amazing counselor. You can tell that she really cares about her clients and she’s extremely patient in listening to your needs. She is also very insightful and is really helping me work through my issues I highly recommend her!
Casey is very professional and is willing to sit and listen to every detail in order to find a solution or multiple solutions.
We’ve only had two sessions together so far, but Casey has actively listened and already helped me in several ways. It has been a very positive experience!
Casey has given me some of the best life tips to put into action! I have already been making so much progress working with her. I'm recommending BetterHelp to my friends and family as well. What a good resource!
My therapist Casey is very helpful and I am surprised with the results since online therapy is something new to me. At first, I hesitated, because it was hard to trust, but then I was amazed at the results I got. I started to see things from a different angle. Thank you BetterHelp, you made my life easier. I’m living in the middle east so It is very hard to find a qualified open-minded therapist who provides professional help without inserting religion into it.
Seems knowledgeable and thinks into what I say, and gives me great steps to follow.
