25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am licensed in Ohio as a licensed social worker and liscensed chemical dependency counsleor, I have been in practice since 1995 when I graduated from Case Western Univeristy with a Master's in clinical social work. I have worked in private practice as well as hospitals, employee assistance and corporations. My primary therapy orientation is person-centered, inasmuch as I strongly believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is paramount for client growth. I maintain that therapy should be an authentic experience, and the client’s need to be heard, valued, and understood is primary. I see my role as both a leader and a follower in treatment to promote client change, and thus I practice a balance of basic empathy and unconditional positive regard, versus directiveness in therapy. While I like to operate from an insight-oriented therapeutic stance, as I deem change that happens inside-out to be most lasting, it requires clients to have a certain level of insight into their concerns. It can be frustrating for clients who do not know what is judicious to discuss in sessions, and therefore I work with clients as well to encourage outside-in changes that can be used as a springboard to promote insight and effect lasting change. I understand that each individual is not an illness or label, rather a person with multiple contributing factors towards his or her distress and/or reasons that are his or her impetus for seeking help. For this reason, I try my best, as renowned psychotherapist Irvin Yalom puts it, to “create a new therapy for each client.” I use theory and techniques from ACT, CBT/REBT, Interpersonal Process Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Existential Therapy, Crisis Intervention, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, Psychoeducation, and Solution-Focused Therapy among other modalities. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families – adolescents and adults suffering from depression/mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/abuse, addiction and substance use, divorce, infidelity, family conflict, relationship issues, self-harming, suicidal ideations, and grief. Additionally, I have done work with clients involving career path, self-esteem/self-confidence, coping skills, life-transitions, and everyday issues. My passion lies in assisting people to find their authentic self and to improve their relationships. In individual or couples’ counseling, whether one’s unhappiness stems from mental health issues or life circumstances, it is my goal to aid folks in weeding through their thorns to gain clarity and inner peace.

25 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Thankfully, I consider myself blessed to have never “worked” a day in my life. I started over 25 years ago providing clinical social work to abused and neglected children and adolescents. Over the years, I have worked with multiple populations in rural and urban settings with low and high incomes. I diagnose and provide therapy to all age ranges, children to seniors. The diversity of the populations I work with include children, adolescents, adults, couples, LGBTQIA, veterans, and families. I have extensive training in PTSD and trauma informed care and continue to work with survivors of sexual assault, abuse and neglect; survivors of domestic violence; and persons in recovery from or believe they have a problem with alcohol, drugs or food. My no nonsense, yet warm and accepting approach is what my clients say they like most about me. Over the years I have helped people heal from the past and deal with current situations that cause them distress, depression, anxiety or fear. Allow me to put my experience to work for you. Yes, I have 2 Masters degrees and I am independently licensed in 2 states, but what I really have to offer is life experience applying evidence based models in a way that meets you were YOU are, not where I want you to be. If you think it is time to some work, then I am ready to help you feel better about you, your choices and your life.

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

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

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

Millbury therapists 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 Millbury counselor?

Before seeing your Millbury 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 Millbury.

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 Millbury 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 Millbury 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 Millbury, 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.

Millbury 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.
