If you are looking for a therapist who cares and makes the effort, who listens without judgment. If you wish to be seen and heard and valued, I am unique in making others feel comfortable, safe and willing, and ready to work through difficult areas of the self. From start to finish, I am on your side. I believe in the therapeutic relationship. I will meet you as an equal, with genuine and effective listening and feedback. We will set goals and assess and revise them along the way. I believe in the therapeutic process and want to help you become your best self. I will be using my 24 years of experience to work for you. I use evidence-based interventions to create a safe therapeutic environment that is conducive to growth and healing. An eclectic blend of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Client-Centered, and Positive Therapy are my treatments of choice. I will be providing weekly 'therapy boosts', that will be tailored information and opportunities to reflect and work on issues between sessions. I am an active messager, so if this appeals to you, we will be a great match. I have found Betterhrelp's platform to be very effective, as combining 24/7 messaging with live sessions is an amazing formula for success. If you've never been to a therapist, I can empathize with the uneasiness. It is scary to entertain our struggles and even scarier to think of telling someone. I assure you I am here to go at your pace, to make you as comfortable as possible, and to help you get to that version of yourself that you are desiring.

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

Before seeing your South Rockwood 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 South Rockwood.

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 South Rockwood 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 South Rockwood 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 South Rockwood, Michigan 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.
