Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you are struggling with something important in your life. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is vital. If you don't have a good connection with your therapist, you won't make the progress you are hoping to achieve. I want to provide you with some information about me, in order to help you decide if my experience and style is the right match for you. I believe every person has a unique story, and I focus on creating a plan together that makes sense. I use a patient focused model that is realistic for day to day life, and provides skills that can be taken outside of the sessions. I strive to create a safe environment where every individual feels accepted and is able to openly share their experiences and thoughts. I have been a Social Worker for more than 20 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds and ages who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, issues with sleep, interpersonal relationships as well as the challenges of parenting. The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. You can expect me to work with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself, the way you interact with the world. I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I find it helpful to participate in video sessions so that we can get to know each other better and I am available to you via phone and text if that is more comfortable for you. I presently have limited availability and it is only in the evenings, but I check messages at least once during each weekday. My availability is currently limited, and I am only able to take members who are seeking sessions on weekday later evenings. If we correspond initially and our scheduling looks to be an issue or we are not a good match, I will request that you select an alternate therapist from the many choices here on BH I know how hard it can be to find a therapist who you feel a connection with, and I assure you that you are in good hands.

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

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

Before seeing your 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 Audubon Park.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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 Audubon Park 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 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 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 professional 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 Audubon Park, New Jersey 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.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

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.
