Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am Susan Shafer, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor for the state of North Carolina, 500hr Certified Yoga Instructor and Certified Practitioner for Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as tapping. I hold a Masters Degree in Community Counseling from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte and have been providing therapy for almost 15 years. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in a variety of settings. My areas of specialty include working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief/loss, ADHD and trauma related hardships. I invite you to check out my website : shafer.services My counseling approach is eclectic and I use approaches that integrates effective wellness practices with traditional psychotherapy including CBT, Mindfulness and Emotional Freedom Techniques. I believe in creating a space that allows clients to express themselves openly and without judgement. My work focuses on helping clients to connect to their inner strengths and increase their awareness of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. At times, I combine yoga practices and psycho-educational techniques that allow clients to experience the power to connect the body and mind through breath and movement. Another form of treatment I highly encourage clients to consider is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), also referred to as 'tapping', which is a scientifically researched method of using self-applied acupressure to reduce stress, shift negative emotions, change unwanted behaviors and work to resolve with trauma memories. I have been trained in these techniques and completed mentorship to become an Accredited, Certified EFT Practitioner through EFTi. It takes courage and trust to begin counseling and I appreciate your willingness to allow me to be a part of this journey. Together, we will identify your goals and skills to help you overcome the challenges you are experiencing or have experienced. One of my greatest joys as a therapist is to witness individuals resolve issues and gravitate toward a life fulfilled with inner peace and joy. When you are ready to begin, I am here to walk the next steps with you!

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

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

Collingswood 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 Collingswood 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 Collingswood 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 08108 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Collingswood 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 Collingswood.

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 Collingswood 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 Collingswood 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 Collingswood, 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.

Collingswood 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.
