About Me

Hi!

My name is Moriah E. McCarthy. I am a licensed mental health counselor that believes in a holistic and blended approach with respect for the mind-body-spirit connection. Mental health is a pivotal component of all wellness.
Treatment with me blends the exploration of the past and the deepening of insight with more concrete interventions and a forward-focused momentum. I use psycho-education and skills-building to empower clients to support themselves after counseling. Strengths and weaknesses are brought forward to integrate thoughts, feelings and actions into the whole self. I believe in collaborating with clients throughout the process. Clients feel supported and also challenged to take responsibility for their own success.
When you work with me, I hope that we partner in your treatment. I value your feedback, appreciate you opening to possibilities, and taking action for greater stability. My approach is best described as client-centered and creative. Thank you so much.

Let’s get started,
M.E.

Moriah has really helped me go through lots of life changes. She is very good at helping me challenge my beliefs and open up new ways of thinking/seeing the world which has helped me a lot with my anxiety. She is excellent, and has helped me pave the path for the life I truly want.

Moriah is absolutely wonderful, I have tried all kinds of therapy, coaching, spiritual counselors and she's by far one of the biggest factors in helping me be well and become functional in all aspects of my life

Written by K.A. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Moriah for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and compassion fatigue

I think Moriah has great energy and knowledge, but I'm not sure if I'm vibing with her yet!

Written by T.R. on May 07, 2022 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and compassion fatigue

-She's supportive but impartial, which is a refreshing change of pace for me.
-She never tries to make decisions for me, but helps me to be more confident in my own choices.
-She stays practical when I'm whimsical, and stays hopeful when I'm cynical.

I've never seen a proper therapist before her, but I find it difficult to imagine someone being better at this than she is.

I have worked with Moriah over 6 months and she has helped me work through anxiety, chronic pain, grief, and internal beliefs. She is a good listener and validated my feelings while also offering solutions and helped me reframe my thinking. I definitely recommend her and enjoy working with her!

Moriah is my favourite therapist out of the 4 I've had to date. She is attentive, observant and incredibly supportive - I love her energy and feel like she actually understands me specifically.

Moriah has been a huge help this past year! I’ve had so many thoughtful conversations with her that have really helped me work on anxiety, coping, and confidence. She’s very helpful and you can tell she’s focused and present in all of our sessions.

Written by T.E. on Jan 24, 2022 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, anger management, and coping with life changes

I've only had 2 sessions so far with Moriah but I am blown away with what she has helped me to understand about myself just from the first session alone. I have recommended her to both friends and family.

Written by D.O. on Nov 17, 2021 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

This is my first time to talk to a professional and I really like how the things are going every discussion. At first, I wasn't expecting so much about live sessions but after going through few of them, I believe it really helps me to go through what I am feeling right now.

Written by L.E. on Nov 14, 2021 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

Moriah has helped me tremendously and I would recommend her to anyone !! I was initially so nervous about trying therapy and talking to someone but Moriah’s warm and fun personality, whilst maintaining utmost professionalism made me feel comfortable.
She genuinely listens, is honest, direct, and is not judgemental. I am very impressed with how quickly she picked up on the issues I needed work on and how applicable her advice and guidance was. It really showed how well trained and knowledgeable she is in her role. She challenges my thoughts and sheds light onto a lot of thoughts and behaviours I have been unaware of until now.
I trust her and am lucky to have been matched with her

She’s very understanding and helps me realize different perspectives as well as help me understand and grow my boundaries.

We haven't said too much just yet as still early days but I appreciate her listening and I like that she makes an effort to understand and she has made me think about what I've said

Written by B.. on May 12, 2021 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

This isn’t the first time I have had therapy, In the past I have had help from other therapists but feel I wasn’t getting anywhere.
With Moriah I look forward to our next sessions and telling her how much she has helped me in the previous week.
I feel I have a really good connection with her, she listens, really listens! I feel very supported by Moriah and would highly recommend her to friends and family if therapy is what they feel they need.
I can’t fault her, she’s honestly the best therapist I have ever had! She’s great!

Moriah is understanding and she tries to help you through what you are experiencing in the moment. She genuinely wants to help you uncover your inner thoughts and grow from them. She is really flexible when it comes to communicating as well. I don't think I'd be seeking this out if she didn't try to hear my story and understand me for me.

Written by C.L. on May 05, 2021 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions, and relationship issues

I find Moriah very easy to talk to and value her advice

Written by A.L. on Feb 28, 2021 after therapy with Moriah for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I have been to counselling before and Moriah is everything I have ever looked for in a counsellor! She is supportive, caring and understanding. I particularly appreciate her honesty, humour and trustworthiness. Her holistic approach has helped me to see things from a different perspective and helped me when I was struggling the most. I am truly grateful to have met Moriah.

She’s simply fantastic. Knowledgeable, encouraging, motivating and humorous. I genuinely believe Moriah is helping me and will be largely responsible for my recovery:)

Written by L.I. on Sep 24, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I loved working with Moriah. She's insightful, encouraging and direct in the best way, able to pinpoint thought patterns and beliefs about myself that I didn't even know I had, also she will challenge your thinking! I really recommend her, I think she could be a good fit for anyone!

Written by J.O. on Aug 20, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, and coaching

I appreciate everything she does for me.

Written by J.O. on Jul 02, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

It was my first time having counselling, so I wasn't really sure about what to expect. I shouldn't have been worried as Moriah made me feel at ease within the first 10 seconds of our first video call.
Not only is she friendly, easy to open up too and someone who you can have a laugh with, but she was so wise, full of incredible advice and has an awesome holistic approach. I am so grateful for her guidance and would recommend Moriah and BetterHelp to everyone.

Written by S.A. on Jun 21, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, and coping with life changes

I absolutely LOVE Moriah! She’s made my first experience of counselling really great. I love her spiritual outlook and her ‘comic relief’ approach. She makes me feel at ease and I feel completely able to talk openly with her about whatever’s going on.

Written by C.A. on Jun 05, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Very responsive and perceptive reflections to offer collaborative, empowering approach.

Written by R.A. on Apr 11, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety

Moriah been amazing and very knowledgeable. She is always listening to everything I have and always has a rational answer that breaks down how I feel and makes me feel good about it.

Written by J.E. on Apr 01, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Moriah listens extremely well and makes astute observations that I have been unable to see myself. She really helps me process things and helps me see things in a very positive light.

Written by K.R. on Mar 30, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and anger management

She's great! When we had our first voice chat she made me feel at ease and I felt comfortable opening up to her. It's great to have counseling where I feel comfortable talking about anything and feeling listened to.

Written by S.U. on Mar 26, 2020 after therapy with Moriah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and intimacy-related issues

Moriah is respectful and a great listener. I’ve been to counselling before but I feel like Moriah has understood my perspective the best. We all have someone who understands us the best so I’m really lucky that I found Moriah at a painful time in my life.

Work with me!
