Welcome! Sometimes life is hard and it is easiest to just lie down and let life happen to us. But because you’re here, I know that there is something within you that realizes that while this may work for a season, it will not lead you towards the happiness you seek nor the life you desire to live. Something within you recognizes that this is a moment to seize. This is a moment that has the potential to bring about invaluable self-discovery that could inspire great change. It is through times of difficulty that we are able to discover the true strength and courage within us. Already you are showing such courage! You have chosen to gain understanding of yourself through whatever challenge you may be facing currently, rather than allowing it to dictate who you are in this world. Owning our own stories is an endeavor worth pursuing. Will it be easy? Not always. Will it be worth it? A thousand times, yes!! I would love to walk with you and support you in your pursuit. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and have 15 years of counseling experience. I am also a Certified Life Coach through the International Coach Federation and have been coaching individuals for two years. Working with clients is something that I truly enjoy. My past and present experiences as a school counselor, a therapist and a life coach have provided me with invaluable experience working with clients of all ages from children to adults, helping them as they process through various experiences and/or reach to achieve goals they have set for themselves. Through these positions, I have worked with individuals and families dealing with such issues as relationships, grief, divorce, anxiety, depression, social difficulties, anger, teen pregnancy, abuse (physical and sexual), rape, trauma, careers and academics. My counseling style is person-centered, meaning that the relationship that we build together is instrumental in helping you to realize your dreams and goals. I will work diligently to foster a safe, honest and caring relationship between us where you have the freedom to fully be yourself and find acceptance in me. Also subscribing to a narrative therapy approach, I believe that the stories we tell ourselves and the meaning we ascribe to the events taking place in our lives have great significance on how one chooses (or not chooses) to deal with life circumstances. So, I’m very curious to know your story. In the grand scheme of life, what story is being told about you and how do you feel about it? Do you believe that you have the ability/power to re-write that story (if need be) to promote a greater sense of self-confidence, identity and satisfaction with your current and/or future life circumstances? Please consider me a guide as you navigate your own personal path of self-exploration. As your story unfolds, I will listen and not judge. I will ask questions to help us both gain better understanding. It is my hope to support, empower and encourage you in the actualization of the goals that you determine are the most important for self-fulfillment at this stage of your life. I would be honored to have you share your story with me and come alongside as you seek to take your rightful position as the hero.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my profile. If you are looking for a compassionate and non-judgmental person to assist you through your journey I would be happy to assist you. I have over 15 years of experience in the mental health field. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Psychology from Hood College and obtained my Master's of Social Work at the University of Maryland, Baltimore Campus. I have worked in a variety of settings including but not limited to; outpatient treatment, hospitals, mobile crisis, the criminal justice system, schools, and adult residential settings. I believe that everyone, at some point in their life, needs a little assistance getting through tough times. I offer a listening ear with the knowledge that the benefits from therapy grow from a good foundation and solid rapport between the client and the therapist. I believe that it is important to let the client chose what to focus on, and while I will guide the client, I am not a therapist who will give the client answers but let them come to their own conclusions. I borrow strategies from a variety of therapeutic modalities including cognitive behavioral, solution focused, mindfulness, and relational therapy.

Hi, I am Erin, I am a licensed counselor in the state of Maryland. I help children, adolescents, adults, caregivers, and people wanting to grow their families. I have a wealth of experience, training, and knowledge in many areas, and my goals are to work with my client to reach their highest potential. My therapeutic approach is focused on a collaborative effort to identify individual strengths and needs, develop meaningful goals, and to explore the necessary steps to attain those goals. My approach leads to increased self-esteem, learning, and attaining the supports that are out there — and teaching you to learn how to transition to a positive lens. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I believe treatment should be as unique as your situation. And I will utilize eclectic methods to help you reach your fullest potential. I am a believer that each case should be treated as each client is unique and therefore utilizes an eclectic source of techniques. When working with children as young as four, I believe that parent involvement is essential, and likes to work with both the parents and the child individually and in a group setting. This may include adding in siblings or other family members so everyone can work as a whole to benefit the child and family. I want my clients to learn how to control their negative self-talk, and therefore, will utilize cognitive-behavioral strategies. I also do not shy away from multisensory and tactile work with her younger clientele. I am only providing messaging and live messaging services and occasional phone sessions. If this is something that you were interested in I am so happy to work with you. I will be checking in Monday through Friday. I can't wait to begin our work together!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Garrett Park counselor?

Before seeing your Garrett Park 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 Garrett Park.

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 Garrett Park licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Garrett Park counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

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 Garrett Park, 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.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

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.
