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) and have experience in a variety of settings.
I started my career in the mental health field in 2009 when I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in psychology and criminal justice. I started as a Therapeutic Staff Support doing in home work with children and families. I have worked as a Crisis Intervention Specialist in an emergency room setting from 2014-2019 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, community, school, and residential treatment settings and roles. 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 as a counselor 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 off and focusing on a positive mindset to help clients change their worldview to one that is more positive and goal oriented. 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!

Casey is excellent. She’s helped me more with my anxiety and depression and school and home stress than any other therapist I’ve talked to, whether in person or online. So glad I found her!

I don’t stop talking about her to friends and coworkers. I would be a hotter mess without her these past 9 months.
