Welcome to Better Help! You've taken a the first and often most difficult step toward getting the help and support you are seeking. It can often be a bit scary and intimidating to reach out and make yourself vulnerable to a new person, but I assure you that I will do my absolute best to help you feel comfortable and to support the development of a trusting therapeutic relationship. My name is Blaire Schroder and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in both New York and New Jersey. I earned my Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University in 2009 and have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Queens College as all of my secondary education is in the field of mental health. I have approximately 14 years of professional experience working in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, relationships/parenting and more. My experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling is the connection and comfort you feel with the person you choose to share your personal struggles with. I believe we all have the capacity to develop self-awareness through our challenges and therefore be equipped to make positive changes and improve our overall quality of life. Sometimes an individual with an outside perspective and no prior connection can offer an unbiased perspective, can provide helpful support, and can guide and motivate us to successfully address a difficult situation at times when we may feel otherwise stuck. It would be my privilege to be that person for you. We all want to be able to share our personal experiences, perspectives, feelings and even flaws, and have a strong desire to be both accepted and understood. I believe that being open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story with me to be critical to the development of a trusting relationship and I sincerely look forward to developing that connection with you.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Palisades 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 Palisades 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 Palisades 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 Palisades 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. 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.
