4 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) based in Maryland with four years of experience as a licensed counselor. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, difficulty managing life stressors, ADHD, and trauma. I can help you to recognize and explore feelings, resolve conflicts, work through difficult behaviors and impulses, reduce anxiety, improve mood, and increase self-esteem. Prior to licensure I served as a crisis counselor on the National Suicide Hotline and am a certified Suicidologist, as well as a trauma-informed counselor. I help to normalize difficult thoughts and feelings and provide concrete supports and tools to help manage them. My counseling style is warm and accepting, and I embrace partnership with clients. I use humor frequently in sessions, but will always honor your story with respect. My approach builds strongly from your strengths, combining humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical-behavioral approaches (and it is fully okay if you don’t know what those are). I tailor approaches based on each client’s needs and therapy goals. If you feel like we might be a good match, or even if you are unsure, I encourage you to reach out and take that step. I am here to support you, and I look forward to working with you.

Paths traveled in life are rarely the straight and narrow. We often encounter twisted roads, bumpy roads, and dead ends. These distractions are just what they are, distractions from getting us to our true destinations. We often need that extra push of encouragement, that new set of directions or even just a moment to regroup, regather, recommit and push forth. Its a normal part of life to face obstacles and we often underestimate our ability to overcome the challenges faced. Maybe you are dealing with conflicts with your significant other, teenaged children, financial struggles, all of this can make depression/anxiety/trauma harder. Maybe you have experienced trauma in your life that you have repressed and you feel as if it is resurfacing and impacting your ability to be the best partner, parent or even person that you can be. If you goal is to partner with a therapist and pull from within, the best you that you can be. I am that therapist for you. I have worked with many individuals over the years who have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. For them life’s challenges were bigger than they were and intensified their depression and anxiety. I spent a great deal of time listening and doing some reflection with them. Through reflection they saw and approached life challenges differently.

11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am licensed in Maryland with 11 years of professional work experience. I have clinical experience in providing counseling to culturally diverse adolescent and adult populations in both individual and group settings. While I consider myself a generalist, I have provided counseling services that address the following presenting concerns: • Depression; anxiety; substance use; relational issues; anger management; stress management; spiritual life adjustment issues; motivation, self-esteem, and confidence concerns. My primary theoretical approach to counseling is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This approach is based on the belief that people’s emotions and behaviors are heavily influenced by their perceptions of events. These unhelpful ways of thinking can negatively affect our emotions and behaviors. By using CBT, I hope to collaboratively identify strategies to modify your thinking, mood and behavior in a healthier and more useful way that leads to improvement in your life as you define it. Additionally, there are occasions where the issue is primarily external to you, in which case problem-solving strategies and skill building may be the preferred method. My approach is collaborative in that it relies upon you as the expert of your life and world. I also work holistically, which involves honoring and understanding your personal values system, which may include cultural factors (race, ethnicity, spirituality, affectional and gender identity, ability, socioeconomic background, and others). As the expert of your own life, I believe that you have strengths and resources which can assist you in achieving your goals. Consequently, this process requires active participation by you. Much of the work and progress is due to what is done outside of our counseling sessions. As such, you may be asked to complete outside activities to apply new skills and access your strengths, with the purpose of reaching your personal goals. I look forward to supporting and empowering you in that journey.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Berwyn Heights counselor?

Before seeing your Berwyn Heights therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Berwyn Heights.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Berwyn Heights licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Berwyn Heights, Maryland can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
