How your day goes is directly related to the quality of your thinking. If you spend a lot of time ruminating; if you have anxious or fearful thoughts about the future; if you get caught in regret about the past; or, if it's plain old negative self talk, these things make it difficult, if not impossible, to be present and find worth in the present moment. And to pursue that which makes life meaningful and worth living. I have 20 years experience helping people increase the positives in their lives while decreasing the negatives. I see those who come to me as troubled and suffering rather than sick or diseased. Oftentimes it just takes a change of perspective or learning new emotional skills to turn things in a positive direction. Should you choose me as your therapist, we will work together to come up with a plan to help you get more of what you want in life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed to practice in Pennsylvania. I received my Master of Social Work degree (MSW) from Rutgers University in New Jersey and I received my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Social Work from Messiah College in PA. Additionally, in 2019 I completed a doctorate through Penn State University with a dissertation focused on social work education. I have been working with individuals, parents, and older adults since 2013. I started my social work career working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital, followed by three years in a medical hospital. I also supported families and children as an Early Intervention therapist. Most recently I work in a school setting providing individual and group counseling to teens and adolescents, as well as providing education and resource coordination to parents, families. And community members. I have experience addressing problems related to disorders such as depression, anxiety, divorce and marital issues, Trauma and abuse, as well as issues surrounding life changes and events. I use evidenced-based approach of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help with emotional regulation and distress tolerance, andto identify and recognize the client’s thoughts which contribute to their behaviors and feelings. The client can then identify distorted beliefs and thoughts, challenge them and create more balanced thoughts which improves the choices they make, and how they feel about themselves and the environment. In conjunction with focusing on thoughts, behavior modification challenges clients to makes a conscious effort to change negative behaviors to improve their feelings and thoughts. Other approaches I may use include strengths based approach, narrative therapy, and solution-focused therapy.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Myrtle Creek counselor?

Before seeing your Myrtle Creek 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 Myrtle Creek.

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 Myrtle Creek 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 Myrtle Creek 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 Myrtle Creek, Oregon 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.
