36 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a certified licensed clinical social worker with a masters degree from the University of Texas at Austin. I am married and the mother of three adult children. I have worked in agency settings and private practice for over 37 years. I have been in private practice providing individual psychotherapy with adolescents and adults, couples counseling and family therapy for 20 years. I use a variety of techniques in therapy, trying to find what will work best for you. These techniques are likely to include dialogue, interpretation, cognitive reframing, awareness and self monitoring exercises, relaxation techniques, mindfulness work and journal writing. Approaching feelings or thoughts that you may have tried to avoid for a long time or recent painful experiences can be painful and scary and my goal is to provide you a confidential, supportive and non judgmental space for you to explore these feelings and life experiences. My areas of specialization and expertise include individual therapy for both men and women, couples and family therapy. I have extensive experience working with a cognitive behavioral approach for anxiety and depression, adjustment, transition and relationship issues. In addition I have experience working with survivors of trauma, abuse and victimization. My private practice is currently located in a college town and I have had years of experience working with college age students transitioning to the college environment as well as the transition to the next stage of their adult lives. It would be my pleasure and honor to support you at this time in your life. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you. Amy

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.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Rosemont region and in the state of Maryland. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Rosemont or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Rosemont therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Rosemont therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Rosemont therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Rosemont therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in MD, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Rosemont 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 Rosemont.

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 Rosemont 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 Rosemont 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 Rosemont, 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.

Rosemont has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. 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.
