I am Orin Willner, and have been a social worker for 25+ years, and an LCSW in New York City for most of them. Prior to this career, I worked in the corporate arena, earning an MBA, which I use regularly for assisting my clients establish a strategy for achieving their goals. I use a combination of psychodynamic techniques and modalities, depending on the needs of the individual. If we don't set goals, we most likely don't achieve them, but the hardest part is often articulating what we want, or where things tend to go awry, and we just need some assistance looking at these things clearly or objectively. My experience in different settings with varying populations (children with disabilities, memory issues, assisted living residents, adults in early recovery, EAP/employment issues) means I can easily adapt to provide the necessary services to benefit most clients, while keeping the focus on the individual.

Therapy is essential because it provides the safest space for us to be our most authentic self. Therapy allows us to speak our unapologetic truth without fear of judgement by family and friends. Think about this.. Most people have had experiences/feelings that are connected to shame and guilt? Do we run to family and friends to share these experiences/feelings? Those of us that answer no should understand how these repressed thoughts/feelings manifest in our lives and this is where therapy comes in! Many people misunderstand the importance of having a Therapist. A lot of people feel like they can deal with life's challenge's on their own. While self determination is great it does not allow for authentic revelations. Self determination in this sense is equivalent to cross examining yourself on the witness stand. Think about it...are we truly capable of asking ourselves the tough questions? Do we have the insight to go deep and connect past experiences to current events? Can we say to ourselves hmmm... I just connected my past trauma to the manifestation of some of my problematic behavior? If you have that level of insight then that is great however if you are among the many that cannot then please allow yourself the opportunity to benefit from therapy. Therapy can help you discover some revelations that may change your life! Using Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness I will help you connect the dots. I will help you understand your emotional cycle (experiences, feelings, behaviors and consequences. I will help you identify your triggers and determine what peace of mind looks like for you. Using S.M.A.R.T goals will help us set goals that can be tracked and measured so you can see your success in real time. Your success is my success! In closing.. As we get older the expectation is that we can "just deal with it" but the reality is this...Dealing with certain feelings and emotions is not that easy to do alone. Choosing to have a Therapist in your life is the best way to "just deal with it" So let's get started! Hope to hear from you soon! Chamika Barrant

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hoosick Falls therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Hoosick Falls due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Hoosick Falls therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hoosick Falls 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A Hoosick Falls 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 Hoosick Falls, New York 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.
