Shelli Berman, LCPC
Hi, welcome to my page!
I am so happy that you are ready to begin your journey through BetterHelp. I genuinely believe that anybody can willingly find benefits from the therapeutic process- mind, body, and soul. I utilize a personal-centered treatment approach for clients to feel a sense of respect, autonomy, and trust. In addition, I utilize motivational interviewing, mindfulness, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and solution-focused approaches to assist you in reaching your goals toward a meaningful life.
I received a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Since that time, I have gained a License in Clinical Professional Counseling in the State of Maryland and a certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (C-DBT). I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults across a diverse population and I strive to maintain awareness of cultural considerations within our therapeutic relationship. Furthermore, I have experience working with individuals struggling with a variety of issues, some of which include: trauma-related issues, mood disorders, depression, anxiety, stress, ADHD and behavioral issues, development of interpersonal skills/ communication and boundaries, emotion regulation, and tolerance of distress.
Every individual deserves to have a life worth living and I am hopeful that through working together in a place of willingness, we can achieve your mental health goals.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
I look forward to meeting you!
