You don't have to deal with overwhelming stress and anxiety on your own. Whether it's life changes, serious illness, or feeling overwhelmed in life where you once felt confident. You may be struggling to find your old self, balance, or it's time for renewal and change. Together we will build upon your strengths and allow a space where you can feel comfortable to express your experiences. My style is warm, non-judgmental, and straight-forward. Whatever your stress, anxiety, or life change, I will work with you to build strengths that you already have, build on your own coping strategies or identify new coping strategies. We will work together to identify your strengths to grow on and how to build on those strengths. I will help you using a blend of approaches including mindfulness, meditation, and strength-based interventions in our work to address your unique needs. I am Certified in Mind-Body Skills through the Center of Mind-Body Medicine, as well as a Certified Yoga Instructor, and also bring that into practice. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker- Clinical. I earned my Master of Social Work degree from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Social Work. I have worked with individuals facing life event changes, specifically transitioning time- such as graduation from HS, college, or graduate school, working with individuals with disabilities, and those who are under a lot of stress in school or work. Coping with and overcoming burn-out is one of my specialties. I do want to inform you that I am most accessible through the message board and have a limited live schedule but will work with you to find the best regular time for both of us. I look forward to working together!

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I was pretty lost in my teens dealing with my parent's divorce, relocation, depression, anger and I did not know how to ask for help. I just hid my feelings, kept busy with work and school and no one ever knew how I was suffering on the inside. I got through college, had a nice career, got married but was still not feeling whole on the inside. My world totally blew up when my husband suddenly died in my early 30's. That was my breaking point..... but I didn't break. I got help. I started counseling to deal with the ugly stuff in my past and to get to a place that I could even begin to heal. I stuck with it as much as it scared me to look inside. And... I started to heal. I also found my passion of helping others to move forward in their lives. The key is to identify your thinking patterns that hold you back and change them to a more realistic and motivating message. When our thoughts are more inline we feel better and our behaviors follow as well. I will help you identify how you hold yourself back, help you set goals, and work with you to make the changes you want in your life. It is such an enlightening experience and we may even have some laughs along the way.

Seeking help is the most challenging thing that most of us will ever do. Armed with life skills, information, and knowledge, we are expected to have all the right answers. Even if we have endured familial, racial, or socio-economic struggles and barriers, we hesitate to seek assistance because of our conditioning to perfection. This pressure makes it that much harder to speak with an absolute stranger and pour out all our life’s troubles. However, if that stranger is a genuine listener, makes us feel safe, and compassionately transitions us from pain to healing, it becomes easier to let that person in on our helplessness. One step at a time toward feeling whole is where it all begins. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the District of Columbia, National Certified Counselor (NCC), Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP), Certified Mindfulness Informed Professional (CMIP), and a Certified YOGABODY Breathing Coach (Yoga Teachers College, American Council of Exercise). At Georgetown University, I offer mental health counseling to employees and their immediate family members and significant others. From bus drivers, housekeepers, administrative professionals to chaplains, academics, international scholars, and more I have engaged a diverse population. Clinically, I have worked on reproductive, relationship, addiction, small (t) and big (T) trauma, mood, personality, developmental disorders, and more. The focus of my therapeutic intervention is an eclectic and integrative approach to holistic health and wellbeing. Integrating and incorporating different treatment modalities, I engage your biological, cognitive, emotional, social, and prosocial self to empower you towards healing. Whether you prefer talk therapy or need energetic behavior change, I will help you start from where you are now. Be confident that you will experience a kind and non-judgmental space for your struggle. I invite you to come to meet with me.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Millington therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Millington due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Millington?

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

Before seeing your Millington 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 Millington.

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 Millington 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 Millington 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 Millington, 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.

If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. 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.
