My name is Tracy and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from New Jersey. I have over 15 years experience in various counseling settings. I have worked with a variety of clients of all ages. Making the decision to begin therapy can be an intimidating one but I will try to make it a comfortable, welcoming experience. Often, we know what we have to do to feel better but we need someone in our corner giving support and guidance. I try to stay focused on the positive and help my clients see their strengths and abilities. I tend to utilize a humanistic approach to therapy where I focus on the whole person. I believe in helping my clients discover their life purpose and values. I utilize mindfulness therapy often. By focusing on the present, we can bring gratitude and quiet our inner critic. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you overcome obstacles so you can be the best version of yourself.

My name is Dr. Paschal. Helping is what I do. To be an effective helper requires the ability to connect with clients. To connect implies making clients to be disposed, and to feel comfortable in my presence in the virtual office. I bagged a doctorate in mental health counseling, and I am a licensed psychotherapist. Although my orientation is cognitive behavioral therapy; however, I tend to incorporate other treatment modalities and techniques in order to better help the client. I also apply psychoeducation and motivational interviewing techniques as needed. I have been helping clients with difficult to treat conditions for the past twelve years. Clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, Bipolar, ADHD, ODD, Low self-esteem, Impulse control disorder, acute stress disorder, relationship issues, other life issues, et.c, are able to function again in the course of treatment. Generally, a speedy recovery normally depends on the client's commitment and readiness to implement treatment recommendations. See you.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Bound Brook 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.

Bound Brook 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 Bound Brook 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 Bound Brook 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 NJ, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Bound Brook 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 Bound Brook.

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 Bound Brook 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 Bound Brook 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 Bound Brook, 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.

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.
