Hello, I am Dr. Maxine Notice. I am a professional counselor with experience practicing in New York, New Hampshire, and Nebraska. My clinical work has allowed me to serve clients in a variety of settings. I work best with helping clients dealing with issues of depression, stress, relationship issues, and unexpected life adjustments. My work in commuity mental health clinics, and hospital settings has made me well rounded in helping clients and their family members adjust to illness, pain management, mental health diagnosis, and grief/loss. I use a series of evidence based practices including cognitive behavior therapy, and solution focused intervention to help clients learn effective skills to gain control over their current life circumstances. I assist clients by creating action plans, tailored specifically to meeting their goals. I am vigilant with staying aware of the latest research, and treatment methods to provide my clients with the most relevant resources to help them succeed. Most importantly, I recognize that life's struggles can be overwhelming and challenging. My goal is to provide you with practical solutions and tools you can apply in all aspects of your life. As my client, we will begin services where you are, while assisting you in identifying healthy solutions to your problems. It is my belief that most people have the ability to grow and build on their own strengths; however, at times, need empowerment and encouragement. Therapy is a collaborative process and I will assist you to learn, grow, and make positive changes that can result in a more fulfilling life.

I am a New York licensed LMHC with over a decade of experience working with formerly incarcerated, currently incarcerated, and severely mental-ill individuals. I have also worked with addicted and dual-diagnosed patients and hold a New York Credential in Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. I do my best to be patient-centered as something that works for one person is not guaranteed to work for someone else and it is the therapist's role to tailor the situation to the person in front of them. In addition to severely mentally ill and incarcerated individuals, I have been trained in trauma therapy and critical incident response management to help individuals work through previous traumas they experienced with the goal of being able to reduce negative feelings that the patient might experience. I am also married to a first responder and have done field work being an assessor to determine a proper level of services needed. These experiences have helped me develop patient-focused skills on people who experience greater traumas as part of their jobs compared to individuals in the regular population.

I promote positive mantras and positive thinking to have you live in a healthier environment in order to be productive and achieve your goals. My passion is to help people, make sure they feel understood and supported. I do my best to assist them in living a more satisfying life. The little things help create big changes and I appreciate those things in you that you often don’t see. I provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment to help you obtain the support and feedback you need. Therapy is about exploring, experimenting, discovering, and being vulnerable. In our therapy together you will learn to increase self-compassion and mindfulness, and your ability to sit with uncertainty and bear witness to uncomfortable feelings and body sensations. You will gain awareness of the role negative core beliefs and thoughts have upon mood and learn how to challenge those negative thought patterns. You will learn to set appropriate boundaries by asserting feelings, recognizing wants and needs, and identifying the role shame and guilt might play in causing unhealthy, harmful, stale, and inauthentic behaviors. My availability is catered to stay at home mothers, college students, or those who work from home or can utilize a lunch break. I am looking forward to meeting with you and working together to start this journey of yours!

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Upper Brookville 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 Upper Brookville due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

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

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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Upper Brookville 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 Upper Brookville 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 Upper Brookville, 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.
