One of the best things about coming to therapy is the amount of courage it took for you to get here. You know what you want out of life and you know when you are not getting it. There is nothing I dislike more than to see human suffering. I have gone through my own and was determined to not let it ruin my life. Sometimes all it takes is for you to feel heard, understood, and feel validated. Therapy is a collaboration between client and therapist and together we will focus on your strengths and help you understand your worthiness was never in question. Other times you may require more skills and techniques to learn in order to overcome your concerns and issues. My primary focus is anxiety, depression, self esteem, phobias, fears, women's issues, OCD symptoms, and finding meaning to life and answer questions like, why am I here? I also volunteered at a Hospice and did my internship there and have knowledge in grief and bereavement. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor and received my Bachelor of Arts through Ashford University and Masters in Science in Clinical Counseling from Bellevue University. I have over 7 years experience working with people from 4 through 89 years of age. These people have taught me so much and I am blessed to do the work I do. I am very much a believer in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as I know the way we think has a direct impact on the way we feel. I also utilize a Person Centered approach, meaning I follow my client's lead and the direction they wish to take. The great thing is, is that there are so many different sets of skills and interventions to use, you will find the ones that work best for you. It all depends on each individual's specific needs.

18 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania with over 18 years of experience in the helping profession. I began my career as a Mental Health/Substance Use Case Manager, where I linked individuals who were diagnosed with a mental health or substance use disorder to needed resources in their community. After completing my masters degree in Community Counseling, I began to counsel various individuals and families who experienced issues with: depression, anxiety, bipolar, grief, trauma, relationship issues, parenting problems, substance use/dependency and other life issues and events. I am a warm, relatable person who believes that each person is currently on their own life's journey. During that journey we experience things that can be pleasant as well as things that can be painful. Therapy/counseling can help serve as a guide to help us navigate those unpleasant moments and painful experiences. Respect and empathy are my guiding principles. My therapeutic approach combines Cognitive Behavioral, Psycho-Dynamic and Humanistic Therapy with Motivational Interviewing and Person Centered Thinking concepts and techniques. Taking the first steps toward change can be difficult at times. If you are ready to begin the journey of healing and positive change I am here to support and encourage you. I look forward to meeting you!

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

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

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

Cranesville 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 Cranesville 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 Cranesville 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 PA, therapists may be booked out with clients.

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

Before seeing your Cranesville 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 Cranesville.

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 Cranesville 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 Cranesville 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 Cranesville, 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.

Cranesville 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.
