I have been a grief counselor for 15 years. We know that grief does not come isolated, there are many issues that may be entwined with grief. Therefore, my experience is with all aspects of end-of-life issues (dying, death and bereavement), spiritual crisis, spirit versus religion, discussions of spirit (signs, symbols, visitations, dreams), relationship issues, self-esteem and confidence, trauma, forgiveness, reinvestment in life, life coaching, career coaching, pet loss and other disenfranchised griefs (unacknowledged relationship, suicide, overdose, homicide, etc.). I am an eclectic counselor and like to use many different techniques as appropriate to the client and their goals. My most used techniques are cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, affirmation and positive techniques. My passion is to help spread kindness, positivity and healing throughout the world. My belief is that each one of us can be a beacon of hope and healing for others and the world. I look forward to working with you in the future. Sincerely, Diana Sebzda

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in New Jersey. I have been working in the counseling field for over ten years. I have worked in many different types of settings over the years including inpatient, outpatient and private practice. I have worked with both adults and adolescents.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe rapport and trust are at the heart of a good counseling relationship, as everyone should be treated with respect and that the counseling environment should foster growth individually, in addition to helping to resolve what brought you into counseling initially. It takes courage and strength to contact someone for counseling to help you make changes in your life, no matter how big or small those changes may seem to you or to those in your life. I hope to see you soon!

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

Before seeing your Woodstown 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 Woodstown.

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 Woodstown 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 Woodstown 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 Woodstown, 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.

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.
