8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My journey as a therapist started in 2008 when I began my graduate work at Cairn University. I graduated in 2012 and began working at the University Counseling Center and accumulating hours towards my license. Throughout the next several years I split my time between private practice and doing assessments at the psychiatric hospital. Between these two venues I was privileged to participate in providing the full range of mental health services available within the community and worked with people from all walks of life and levels of need. Over the last 9 years I have worked helped individuals and families deal with depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, relationship concerns, and stress management. I've walked with people through times of crisis, job searches, and stage of life transitions. In particular, I know first hand the burden families face when a loved one is chronically ill and how to help people navigate through those challenges. My approach to therapy utilizes practices from a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic interventions along with mind-body techniques. I have a strong passion for integrative medicine and therefore consider all aspects of a person’s life pertinent to their wellbeing. Each person is a unique and therefore every person requires a unique approach tailored just for them. I can be a strong voice, inserting direct feedback and challenge or I can gently assist and guide you to find your way. I am here to laugh, cry, strive, and fight with you. My joy is to see people discover more of their true self, to overcome personal obstacles, and to learn contentment in the midst of unpredictable life trials. I am grateful for every opportunity that I am given to share in another's journey of life.

If you are here, it’s probably because you are at a breaking point. Tired of feeling down? Tired of feeling exhausted? Maybe you feel alone or ignored? No matter what you are dealing with, it is my honor to walk beside you. My approach to counseling is one of empathy and understanding. I want to help you develop deeper insight into your thoughts and emotions and how they impact your behavior. I will not simply give advice. I will, instead, help you to see yourself from a different perspective. I use an eclectic blend of psychodynamic therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. My goal is to help you not only recognize thought patterns but also to be aware of the framework from which these patterns have emerged. You are in control of this process and my hope is that through this process you will begin to find your voice, find hope and see change in your life.

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

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

Before seeing your Farrell 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 Farrell.

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 Farrell 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 Farrell 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 Farrell, 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.

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.
