It is so hard to ask for help but you have gotten this far, let me help you! My goal is to provide hope and guide you to a more fulfilling future! My name is Tara and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Behavior Specialist in Pennsylvania, also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). For 6.5 years, I worked with children and adolescents with Autism and other mental health disorders and their guardians, managing their children's challenging behavior. This has also included co-parenting difficulties. I have 15 years' experience helping people who struggle with alcoholism and addiction. Also, pre COVID, I volunteered to assist and facilitate activities during the weekend-long (2015-2019) Camp Erin, Philadelphia (Eluna Network), as a cabin ‘Grief Chief'. This camp is geared toward helping children ages 6-17 process the death of a loved one. We created a fun and safe atmosphere where the children could express their feelings, tell their stories and memorialize their loved ones. I believe in treating my clients with dignity, respect and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused (because really- who makes it out of childhood without some kind of trauma!), and psychodynamic therapy.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Conneaut Lake counselor?

Before seeing your Conneaut Lake 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 Conneaut Lake.

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 Conneaut Lake 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 Conneaut Lake 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 Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania 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.
