HI everyone! Glad that you reached out. My name is Sean Butler and I am a licensed clinical social worker who loves to work with others to achieve a happy life. As we move through life, we sometimes are effected by mental health --- I rather use the term emotional wellbeing issues. I am here to help you as a partner in this journey. Over the years, from my personal experiences with therapy and education I have been able to create a therapeutic style, which is inviting and warm. I have experience utilizing several modalities including CBT, Psychoanalytic, Mindfulness and Meditation, which I will use in a person-centered manner. I have worked with clients who are affected by multiple emotional well- being issues: depression, anxiety, bipolar, and addictions are some of my favorite emotional well-being issues that I love to work with. I have learned depression can be defined as either a need not meet or loss of purpose in life: anxiety is the fear of the unknown: and with regard to bipolar, if we can harness the positive attributes of this, you will have the tools to create a great life! Following is some more personal information about me: I was born in Royal Oak, Michigan; from age one to age six I lived in England (both my parents were born in Ireland), and I have one brother that is four years younger than me. When we returned to the “States,” I lived in New Jersey. I went to Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, North Carolina ( the first time—apparently I forgot to go back—it was the late 70s), then returned to New Jersey where I began a career as a licensed/assistant chief engineer in power plants in New Jersey. In 1984, I moved to the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, had three children, and then experienced divorced. In 2010, I chose to follow a dream created while in therapy (thank you Dee) to become a therapist and help others. So I returned to school (thank God I had 54 Credits from Belmont Abbey) gaining my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychology from Desales University and Masters in Social Work from Marywood University. Since 2017, my wife and I live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and my full-time job is working with people at a local agency. In closing, I am looking forward to meeting you and walking with you towards whatever goal want to achieve. Until we meet, have a great day! SPECIALTIES • Stress, Anxiety • Trauma and abuse • Grief • Bipolar • Depression • Addictions Response time : My response time during the hours of 9 AM to 5 PM will be limited due to other obligations. Most evenings I am available from 5:30 PM EST to 9:00 PM EST as well as on the weekends where I have more flexibility. Also I prefer to use video platform since this gives us a chance to meet. I will connect by phone/email in between sessions as needed. Thank you in advance. Sean

Hello and Welcome….. Everyone has choices to make in life. Some are harder to make than others. My goal for you is to work together to provide a non-judgmental therapy experience. My name is Denise Mitchell and I have been providing therapy to individuals from age nine to adults for over ten years. My educational background started at the University of Pittsburgh where I received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in education and Counseling. My journey to Maryland encouraged me to take my education a step further. Once I settled in Maryland, I attended Loyola University where I completed the requirements to become a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). I have been providing therapy in this capacity for four years. I have a wide array of experience working with adults 18+. My specialty is diverse and includes working with individuals with learning challenges, social skills challenges, anxiety/stress, behavior concerns, trauma/abuse, coping skills, friendship skills, self-esteem/self-confidence, problem-solving and self-harming/suicidal ideations, and grief. My approach to therapy is to use a variety of modalities such as Person-centered therapy to guide you through steps to resolve problems. Reality therapy to discover choices and options and what is happening in your life now. Cognitive behavior therapy assists with recognizing how your thinking affects your behavior. With these therapeutic styles as the focal point, it is still my practice to select a combination of approaches that best fit the person and their needs. Not one approach fits all. I will tailor therapy to your specific needs. My style of therapy is to create a warm therapeutic environment where you feel safe, relaxed, and open to begin discussing concerns. The decision to seek therapy can be scary and feel overwhelming. Making this decision together can lessen your apprehension and provide room for change to occur. I provide genuineness, caring, and empathy during my sessions. I encourage us to work together to create a treatment plan that is right for you. I am looking forward to us working together and enlightening you with a different way of thinking. Don’t worry I will meet you where you are, and we can make the transition together. Best wishes, Denise

Let me start off by saying, I admire your braveness for seeking support and your dedication to yourself! Sometimes life can be overwhelming for a variety of reasons or for unknown reasons. It's very common to not feel okay and to not know what to do to make it better. What are your goals and what is in stopping you from reaching them? These are some of the concerns that bring people into counseling. I find Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be a beneficial technique to help people make changes in their thinking, which ultimately leads to changes in their behaviors. As a therapist, I will not tell you what to do or push my own agenda. Instead, I will challenge your current beliefs and thoughts to give you the confidence and tools to help you help yourself. If you are nervous about starting this process, therapy or counseling does not have a specific look and will be tailored to what you need. Respect, active listening and a nonjudgemental approach are very important factors in building a strong therapeutic rapport. A little bit about me, I am a clinical social worker who is licensed in the state of Maryland. I earned my Bachelors degree in psychology from James Madison University and my Masters of Social Work (MSW) from University of Maryland. I have over 11 years of experience and have worked in a variety of environments including hospitals and outpatient clinics. I have worked with clients who have many different needs, so please feel free to be open about what you are experiencing. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, parents and young adults. Depression, mood disorders, life changes, ADHD, anxiety, stress management, behavioral concerns and family issues are some of the reasons that brought people into therapy. I wish you much success in your journey of becoming the best version of yourself.

I am a professional counselor licensed in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as nationally certified. I am also certified in school counseling k-12. I have worked with varying age groups and populations. I started out my professional career in a social service department in a hospital. Following this, I have worked in schools, as well as various mental health agencies. Most recently I was the director of a mental health and drug and alcohol facility. During my career as a clinical psychotherapist, I strived to become a very well-rounded clinician, working with multiple modalities along with ongoing continued education to provide the best care to those I served. I am in the process of earning my PhD. While I do utilize multiple modalities such as DBT, CBT, and SFT, I believe in a person-centered approach overall, as each individual is unique and thus deserves the approach and style that best fits their own unique needs. Additionally, I have worked with addictions extensively both individually and in a group format. I have taken extensive training in gambling addiction and have run IOP for drug and alcohol groups for many years. I believe wholeheartedly in providing validation and helping my clients understand the importance of self-validation. No matter what the struggle is my clients are facing, I believe that they have the strength within them to overcome their obstacles. I strive to help them find that strength.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Landover Hills counselor?

Before seeing your Landover Hills 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 Landover Hills.

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 Landover Hills 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 Landover Hills counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Landover Hills, 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.
