19 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi! My name is Rob Lieberman and I'm a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio. After graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with my MSW, I moved back to my native Ohio to begin my career. I have over 19 years of experience working with clients ages 6- 15 and their families who have significant mental and behavioral health issues. During this time, I have worked with clients who have issues with impulse control, anger management, coping skills, interpersonal relationship, defiance and oppositional behavior, grief and loss, and self esteem. My work has been in both group and individual settings with clients who are primarily from low income households. When working with my clients, I feel it's important and necessary to start where they are. Everyone is different with varying needs and deserves to be treated as such.. I also believe it important to be realistic in expectations for counseling and working with the client about how to reach obtainable goals. In terms of what to expect in working with me, I am a kind and patient person who takes a genuine interest in my clients' wellbeing. Seeing others make their desired changes is very fulfilling to me. I believe anyone can face challenges in their lives and have the need for support and guidance. Each person experiences events in their own way and the feelings associated with those are valid. It is my hope to be able to provide the aforementioned support and guidance to make managing those challenges and stressors easier. I know it's not easy to seek help and I acknowledge the importance of taking the first step to do so. In working with you, I seek to support that and look forward to working with you to make the changes you desire. I'm open to any questions you have and and will do my best to answer them honestly.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Jackson Center region and in the state of Ohio. 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 Jackson Center 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. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Jackson Center 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.

Jackson Center 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 Jackson Center 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 Jackson Center 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 OH, therapists may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 45334 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site.

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

Before seeing your Jackson Center 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 Jackson Center.

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 Jackson Center 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 Jackson Center 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 Jackson Center, Ohio 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.

Jackson Center 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.
