8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Madison and I have been providing therapy services for over 7 years in Ohio and Minnesota. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and walks of life in a variety of settings, including schools, physician's office/hospitals, and private practice. My approach typically includes methods from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT, Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). Some issues I specialize in include anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, interpersonal conflict, and coping with major life changes. However, I believe that every client is unique and has different needs, even if they are facing similar challenges. It is my job to figure out which approach will be most effective for you. I received my Bachelor of Science in Social Work and my Master of Social Work degrees from the Ohio State University, where I also played division 1 hockey. As an athlete, I learned that resiliency, determination, and collaboration are important skills not only in sports, but also in life. As a therapist, I see my clients as my teammate. We will work together towards a common goal, which we will set together. You have your strengths, and we will identify those and use them to our advantage. The fact that you are here shows me that you are ready to make a change. Seeking support is the first and most difficult step. I am so glad that you are here, and am excited for us to work together to improve your quality of life. Welcome to our starting line!

Hello and Welcome. I am so glad that you decided to reach out for support at this critical time in your life. It takes a great deal of courage to pursue change and to work towards living your best life. I am honored that you would allow me to partner with you on this journey. Here is some information about me and how I plan to support you as you move forward. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Cleveland State University (2014) and am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with Supervision Designation for the state of Ohio. Since the beginning of my social work career I have been refining my skills and gaining valuable work experience in a variety of settings. After obtaining my Bachelor degree from Bowling Green State University I set out to change the world one person at a time. For the first half of my career I worked for the Salvation Army as a Community Social Worker and concluded my time there as The Director of the Women and Children’s Shelter. As a community social worker I engaged in crisis intervention, case management and served as a life coach. My experience as a director helped me to gain knowledge in group therapy, advocacy and coordination of services. I have worked with runaway teens as well as those involved with the justice system. The second half of my career included clinical social worker in the acute hospital setting as well as a rehabilitation center. In these settings I provided case management and counseling services for those individuals who had a sudden life changing event that resulted in depression, anxiety and a need to formulate a plan for a new normal. My current position as a hospice social worker allows me to provide grief, marital and family counseling prior to and directly after the patients transition. I truly believe that the work I do is my gift and each day I live by the motto, “We come into this world full, leave empty”. My counseling style is warm and engaging and I always strive to develop a therapeutic relationship that leaves the person feeling valued and heard. My primary approach is Client Centered which focuses on providing unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuine support. I also utilize Cognitive- Behavioral and Psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and special needs. If you’re ready for a change I stand ready to help.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Mayfield Heights counselor?

Before seeing your Mayfield Heights 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 Mayfield Heights.

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 Mayfield Heights 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 Mayfield Heights 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 Mayfield Heights, 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.

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.
