24 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I was born and raised in Central New Jersey, enjoying the seasons, playing tennis and vacationing in Florida. Friends asking for advice led to a career in psychology/social work, which was a good fit. After college and graduate school, I moved to Chicago and then ironically, to South Florida! I am Jewish and married for 29 years and have 3 children, ages 24, 21, and 19. My lived experiences in a variety of circumstances allows me to be a very empathetic therapist: Relationships, friendships, spectrum issues, loss, illness, motivation, relational bullying, sociopathy, self-esteem, empowerment/self-strengthening, family issues, career concerns, and sports psychology. At 23, my tennis racket was traded in for figure skates: I have been skating ever since at the Silver Ladies Freestyle Level, in addition to testing in dance. I have been with betterhelp for almost three years. I feel each of us is unique and our therapeutic pathway reflects that individuality. I enjoy helping clients become motivated to make life changes while exploring their inner self. When experiences are reviewed, they are often examined from a different vantage point, proffering insight to begin the journey of change. I have extensive experience supporting individuals with relationship difficulties, childhood spectrum disorders (ADD, ADHD), parenting, self-esteem and self-empowerment struggles, goal management, career goals/issues, familial concerns, and grief and loss. I'm also interested in the intersection of psychopathy, triangulated interactions (especially related to jealousy), and manipulative tactics within relationships. I take an eclectic approach and enjoy integrating different treatment modalities into session to adhere to the individual needs of the client: Psychodynamic; EMDR (I am EMDR trained), Couples therapy (Gottman Level 1); Systemic, Insight-Oriented, Solution-based, Narrative, Rogerian-Strength-based, Emotion Focused Couples Therapy, Vulnerability Cycle Approach, Emotion Focused and Client Focused Therapies, and Cognitive-Behavioral. My specialty is in relationships, change, organization, and self-control. By helping individuals learn how to respond to others' behaviors and daily stresses in a healthful manner, they are able to perform better, live happier, and become mentally healthier. I assist clients to detect deficient life patterns to pinpoint underlying issues for remediation. In turn, clients are able to strengthen their personhood. I particularly enjoy working with couples, helping them communicate and reflect on themselves, each other, and their relationship. Men and women often have very different perceptual styles. Understanding these differences and how to approach and embrace these unique aspects helps couples become stronger and more unified. If you do not see a time on the scheduler that accommodates you, it does not mean that I cannot do a certain time for you. I often schedule "by appointment," especially on weekends. I also utilize a very honest approach, so if you desire to be lulled into a false sense of security, I am not the therapist for you. Quotes: "Who is afraid of the wolf does not go into the forest." Aljona Savchenko "If you live long enough, you experience everything." Scott Hamilton "If you have the choice to be kind or right, be kind and you will always be right." Anonymous "Thinking is difficult, that's why most people judge." Carl Jung "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It is the life in your years." Abraham Lincoln "If you don't have a miracle, you can create one."

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Litchville 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.

Litchville 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 Litchville 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 Litchville 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 ND, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 58461 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Litchville 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 Litchville.

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 Litchville 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 Litchville 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 Litchville, North Dakota 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.

Litchville 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.
