Welcome. My name is Judy Goldman and it is my pleasure to assist you on your travels through the bumps, twists and turns of life. We all walk this journey in our own individual ways. Sometimes life can be filled with joy, excitement and hope for what lies around the corner. But for those times when we get knocked off balance and it seems harder to find our way, just having the right person to speak to, helps us regain our footing and continue on our path. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, having been licensed in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I earned my degree in 2003 and have been working as a therapist with individual, couples and children and families for more than 15 years. I am open-minded, accepting, and always willing to listen. I draw from a wide variety of styles and techniques, but do not rely on any particular one. I believe we are all unique with our own way of processing the events and experiences of our lives. I am here to help you sort out and work through whatever isn't working well and holding you back from being the highest version of yourself. I believe together we can find more contentment and peace in your life. My experience working out in the community and in private practice has included clients of all ages and backgrounds with Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Recovery, Eating Disorders, Behavioral and Cognitive Difficulties, Relationship Issues, Parenting Difficulties (including foster care and adoption issues) and Abuse and Addictions. I work with phone and live chat as well as messaging. Feel free to message me anytime as I try to check Better Help twice daily. Congratulations on taking the most important step in taking care of yourself by reaching out to connect here. I welcome the opportunity to work together and help you discover a way in to the most rewarding relationship of your life...the one with your truest self.

Hello! My name is Mehjabeen (Mehj) Aubol. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania, and a National Certified Counselor located in Pennsylvania. I have a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling and have about 9 years of experience working as a mental health counselor. I grew up immersed in more than one culture. I consider myself to have a strong cross-cultural understanding, and can relate to individuals who come from multiple cultures and backgrounds. My approach to counseling is always to get to know the individual first, understand their goals for counseling, and work with them as a team to help them get to where they desire to be in their life. I am always open to feedback and willing to try new methods or approaches that best fit the needs of each individual I work with, as every individual is unique! I have significant experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety, PTSD, family conflict, self-esteem issues, and Autism. My primary approach and training is Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which focuses on identifying and changing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As I mentioned, I can modify my approach for each individual I work with. My favorite part of being a counselor is getting to know each and every individual. The most satisfying part of this job is seeing people attain their goals and noticing change in their lives.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Cross Roads. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Cross Roads, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Cross Roads region and in the state of Pennsylvania. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Cross Roads or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300

While many psychologists in Cross Roads may not take health insurance, some in the state of Pennsylvania may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Pennsylvania you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Cross Roads 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.

Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 17322 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads.

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 Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads 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 Cross Roads, 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.

Cross Roads 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.
