6 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome to BetterHelp! I'm so happy you were able to take this step forward! My name is Julia Donato and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in New York State. I have been practicing for almost 6 years in a variety of settings, including residential facilities, private practice offices, schools, the community and in clients' homes. I am educated primarily to work with family systems, including extensive knowledge regarding intimate relationships. Most of my experience is working with kids and teenagers, as well as their families. I also have training and education around parenting, the difficulties, emotions involved and helpful skills and techniques. In general, I have worked with many clients dealing with depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma, self-motivation and relationship concerns. I work from two main theories of therapy, including Attachment Theory and Cognitive Behavioral Theory. Using Attachment theory basically means I am curious about your family and friend supports so I can better understand how you grew up, the important people in your life and how they contribute to your success. As for Cognitive Behavioral theory, I prefer working with the techniques in this theory, as they are easy to learn and can be used at home in your daily life, helping you build better patterns. Generally, I am also interested in all the different systems of your life, as I believe they impact each other. However, I definitely want all clients to be able to lead their own journeys in treatment, and so I will look to you to provide goals and objectives. I view your role as the leader on this journey, and my role as the guide, helping provide all the potential pathway options. My initial goal is to always build a strong relationship with each client so that treatment can be tailored to your specific needs. I work from a very collaborative perspective and so I will work hard to make sure treatment is how you envisioned. I want to make sure all clients receive the care they need, and so I am always open to feedback from clients on what might work for them. I truly want what is best for all my clients, as I always want everyone to feel whole and full of life. Thank you for reading and I cannot wait to work together!

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Keeseville region and in the state of New York. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Keeseville or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

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

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

Keeseville 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 Keeseville 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 Keeseville 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 NY, 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 12944 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 Keeseville counselor?

Before seeing your Keeseville 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 Keeseville.

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 Keeseville 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 Keeseville 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 Keeseville, 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.

Keeseville 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.
