Founded in 1705 by Nicholas Moore who bought the land from William Penn, the town of Hatboro was named as such because the main business in town was a hat manufacturer. There are many spots in the town that is on the National Register of Historic Places that you can explore to learn more about the town’s history.

It is also fun to learn about your own family’s history including medical history because there are some illnesses that are hereditary. Some of these may include mental or emotional illnesses that can strike without warning. If you have any concerns about your mental health, talk to one of the Hatboro area counselors today for an appointment.

I am a graduate of Bryn Mawr College of Social Work and Social Research Masters Program. Since then, I have worked in adoption, with hospice, and with a variety of people with different problems in my private practice of 25 years. Some of these include relationship counseling, individual counseling, obesity, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, alcoholism, drug addiction, women's issues, and geriatrics. Working with people to be the best that they strive to be is always the only goal that I have. I will help you discover what is right with you. We will use your strengths to make you the best you can be. It only takes a serious commitment from you. Sometimes we may have to dig a little deeper, and that is OK, too. There is no "cookie-cutter" counseling! However, I will always treat you with the respect that you deserve, and encourage you to use the intelligence that you have within you to resolve your issues. It takes courage to change; it often takes a person in emotional pain as well. Whatever has brought you here, I salute you for taking that first step! I look forward to helping you on your journey as you find out how small changes in behavior and thinking can lead to big changes in your life, one step at a time. I am a Certified Diplomate through the National Psychotherapy Association, a Masters Addictions Counselor through the National Association of Addiction Counselors, a member of long-standing in the National Association of Social Workers, and a Masters Addictions Counselor through the National Association of Forensic Counselors. Let's get started on your being the best that you want to be! You are incredibly and beautifully complicated, and you will be impressed with all of your complexities that we will discover together as you begin your journey of self-discovery! Jan

Life can be challenging, am I right? Perhaps we all need a little help working through these challenges. I am a Nationally Certified and Professional Counselor with experience treating Drug and Alcohol and Mental Health challenges and obstacles you and others may face. My belief is we all have the ability to make changes and improvements in our lives, and some of the most challenging experiences can lead to valuable insights and the opportunity for self-growth. I also respect we all have differences, therefore, being seen and heard without judgement by another can be one of the most healing experiences we can have. My goal is to empower you to find solutions, learn new ways, explore your strengths, work toward healing from past experiences, and stay focused on becoming the best version of yourself that you can be. I wish to be a collaborative guide who helps you gain self-awareness, view your thoughts and life in a more positive way, and develop strategies to cope and regulate your emotions in a healthy manner. I will encourage you through the process of gaining greater self-confidence, self-compassion, a stronger sense of identity, and trusting your own decisions. I consider myself to be a strong community and social services professional who holds a Master of Arts - MA focused in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Bachelor of Arts - BA focused in Clinical Mental Health Psychology from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. I draw from many evidence-based theories, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy; Person-Centered Therapy; Emotion-Focused Therapy; Trauma-Focused Therapy; Psychodynamic Therapy; Dialectical Behavioral Therapy; Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness practices. I've worked with clients aged 4 through 88 experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, ADHD, trauma, loss, behavioral, emotional, and developmental challenges, among others. "Before every session I take a moment to remember my humanity. There is no experience this man has I cannot share with him, no fear I cannot understand, no suffering I cannot care about, because I too am human." -Carl Rogers

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. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Hatboro or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Hatboro area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hatboro 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 Hatboro 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 Hatboro 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Hatboro, Pennsylvania working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Hatboro above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Hatboro therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Hatboro 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 lot of people in PA, providers 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 19040 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Hatboro 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Hatboro, 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.

Hatboro 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?

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.
