8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hello! My name is Megan Bartz and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have over 3 years of experience working with individuals in outpatient and inpatient settings who are struggling with mental health and substance use disorders. I am passionate about treating individuals holistically and believe that the counseling relationship is one of the main vehicles for change as it provides a safe place for individuals to process and progress. I am person-centered and believe in not only being genuine with everyone I work with, but also treating you with unconditional positive regard. Ultimately, one of my main goals in treatment is to help individuals discover what gives them hope as I believe that hope is imperative in order for change to occur. I also draw from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in order to help individuals discover how their thinking is affecting their emotions and their behaviors and then how to learn to think differently so that they may find a different outcome. Ultimately, I believe you are the expert on yourself and that it can also be helpful at times to have a fresh perspective to walk alongside you as you journey to a place of greater self-awareness. My main priority is listening to what your needs are and helping you find a way to make those a reality. I would love the opportunity to work with you, thank you!

My passion is helping hurting people regain their lives, sense of direction, and wellness. I assist clients in discovering the roots of their present-day issues and work to foster healthy self-perceptions and relationships. When people experience trauma, pain, or mental illness in their lives, it can feel difficult to cope, let alone function. My path to becoming a psychologist was a clear one for me; I always had a desire to help people in distress. If someone was upset, I seemed to know it (even without a word) and wanted to do something. I worked as a professor for about seven years early on in my career but preferred working one-on-one with people in private practice. Starting counseling can be challenging. Talking about trauma, flaws, and imperfections is sometimes not what we want to do. However, when we've been hurt by people and circumstances, we need someone to talk to. I believe counseling is a wonderful place for people to finally work through issues and problems that have been bothering them. I am nonjudgmental and feel comfortable letting a client lead in sessions if we are making good progress. I am a stickler for confidentiality because, without that, no one would want to come to therapy. I focus on creating a meaningful and safe working relationship where clients can talk about their history as well as what is going on in the moment. I take an eclectic approach depending on the reasons for referral. I offer EMDR as one modality for treating trauma, and also have experience in providing Christian counseling.

Fundamentally I believe that everyone is doing the best that they can, with the caveat we can all work towards a better self. This assumption drives me to pair compassionate nonjudgmental empathy with hope and meaningful wellness targets to assist with getting you to where you want to be. I focus on exploring internal and external motivators of intense emotion and ineffective behaviors while integrating a self-acceptance and better understanding of how our biological motivators/drives interact with life’s constant barrage of stress and develop conditioned response patterns. Each individual entering the process of developing insight and confident self-management brings with them unique strengths and challenges based on life experiences and genetic/biological vulnerabilities. When selecting specific treatment strategies, I look to harness innate strengths, assess for opportunities to educate, encourage, and reinforce the change process. I tailor my approach to highlight and utilize personal expertise with your life to target specific barriers to wellness self-management pairing with practical strategies to establish self-control and direction. Recognizing personal challenges and choosing to explore them is the first significant step towards self-awareness and confident stability. I am confident in our ability to successfully develop a strategy unique to you that effectively encourages and self-reinforces you to towards a confident wellness with improved competency and stability. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you see opportunities for your own self-improvement with me. I am looking to partner with individuals who are willing and active collaborative participants in this process.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a New Hyde Park counselor?

Before seeing your New Hyde Park 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 New Hyde Park.

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 New Hyde 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 New Hyde Park counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 New Hyde Park, 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.

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.
