3 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Amy and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have been in the mental health field for nearly 15 years in a variety of settings. This has given me the opportunity to assist a diverse group of people in addressing both acute and chronic mental health issues while also striving to achieve an improved satisfaction with life. While I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, a person’s needs and preferences ultimately determine what will drive the collaboration. I am extensively trained in relationship issues, post traumatic stress disorder, and women’s health issues including pregnancy emotions, postpartum depression and perinatal loss. In addition to that, I also have a significant amount of experience with anxiety, depression, bipolar, grief /loss, and adjustment issues. It can be overwhelming to experience negative emotions. Some of us only experience them for a short amount of time after a specific event occurs, while others experience their interference in life satisfaction for many years. It is my hope that I can assist you in assessing and managing the negative thoughts and emotions you might be experiencing. I believe those that I have worked with in the past would describe me as easy to talk to, having a love for humor, and liking to keep things “real.” I value creating a warm and genuine environment that you can feel comfortable in discussing some of the most difficult topics. Making this initial decision to establish a relationship with a counselor can leave you feeling vulnerable when getting ready to talk with a complete stranger. It is my goal to immediately create a comfortable working relationship. I look forward to meeting you!

9 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am an autistic therapist, this is important to mention as I will speak in a way that you may not be familiar with hearing. I will be very direct, honest, and base what I say in research or lived experiences of other clients. People familiar with a therapist that only listens may find me to be a challenge, which is ok, finding the right therapist is part of the journey, and I am here for that journey. I began my education in research psychology before entering counseling. Now, I am a Community Counselor. I have spent my time as a therapist side by side with people in their homes, in their schools, at their workplace, and out in the community. I have worked with people on the Autism Spectrum, with ADHD, depression, mood disorders, and end of life issues. My approach to helping has always been to help you define your current purpose. I utilize a client-centered approach, cognitive behavioralism, and existentialism. I want you to feel heard, seen, and feel that you are important. We will work together to help you on a journey to discover yourself. I am glad you are here and I look forward to working with you.

Also at www.coryianshaferlpc.com and available by call or text to 570-332-2093 I have been in the field since 2005 as a psychological professional, but before that I worked as a paramedic. I think it was there, that when I began to see death and change in our lives, I began an internal journey. After a while I transferred schools and began to study psychology and sociology, therefore leading me to becoming a clinician.. Overtime, as a therapist I have gradually moved closer to an existential philosophy of counseling. My primary areas of focus are in grief, change of life, anxiety, depression and stress reduction with a mindfulness based approach. While I'm primarily an existential therapist, I also consider myself eclectic, borrowing from other schools of thought. I am also client-centered and I believe that most of us already have the ability to be the best that we can be. However, life can be difficult and it is guaranteed that a few times we will be thrown off of our intended course, it is when these storms come that we find ourselves lost and in need of a little help to walk out of whatever we are in.

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Fredonia 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 Fredonia 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
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Fredonia 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.

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 Fredonia?

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

Fredonia 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 Fredonia 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 Fredonia 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 16124 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 Fredonia counselor?

Before seeing your Fredonia 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 Fredonia.

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 Fredonia 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 Fredonia 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 Fredonia, 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.

Fredonia 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.
