13 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Hi, my name is Zamen Abo-Zebiba, and I am a Doctor of Psychology, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor. My own cultural competency is built on a lifetime of international experiences. Growing up surrounded by cultures different from my own, I was encouraged to identify and value both the commonalities and differences of the human experience. Exposure to diverse peoples was instrumental in shaping my worldview and values. My awareness and appreciation of cross-cultural understanding grows continually. I highly respect and value individuals who come from different cultural backgrounds and faiths. I feel strongly about helping people who don’t have a voice. I want to be an advocate and pursue a role that will allow me to help as many people as I can. I chose this profession because I feel passionate about it. Not many people are fortunate enough to find a job or a career that they feel so passionately about and I am thankful for that. I have a speciality training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I utilize CBT as my primary theoretical orientation because I find it to be helpful with many different populations. I like that CBT is a collaboration between client and therapist and that they work together to problem-solve and there is an emphasis on treatment goals. I also have extensive training in a range of modalities which include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for emotional dysregulation as well as other mindfulness based therapies. I believe that it is very important for clients to be aware of their emotions and to be able to have that sense of control back. Other areas of specialty include trauma, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, self-esteem, and relationships. Individuals need to be in an environment where they feel safe, accepted, and not judged and this is what I provide. You have already made the first step, and I would welcome the opportunity to help you in that journey. I look forward to working with you.

My style is eclectic. I incorporate multiple theories and models into our work together. I have completed training in Gestalt Psychotherapy and Attachment theory. I'm well-read, so I use other approaches in my work too, and like all counselors, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I can take a spiritual approach to our work when requested. I will incorporate nutrition and exercise into conversations as well when asked. My style is straight-forward and direct. I see our relationship as a partnership in a collaborative process. You know you, I know psychology. We work together to figure out what you might address to improve your life. My focus is on your strengths, and I work to empower you to see things differently to feel better. I enjoy helping people with anxiety and depression. I work well with overachievers, intellectuals, and high-functioning or over-functioning individuals to help them find balance in their life overall. I understand addiction and how to support family members of a person with an addiction. I enjoy working with couples. I have completed the Gottman phase 1 training for Marriage Counseling. I like working with children and teens. I have experience working with schizophrenia, OCD, Selective Mutism, Hoarding, Bipolar, and chronic mental health diagnosis. I'm skilled in Parenting Concerns. I've worked as a mobile therapist with children and teens; I have experience supporting autism in male and female clients. I've also worked with children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder and ADD, and ADHD. I've also worked in crisis and inpatient mental health, but I think that online therapy is not for those who are in crisis. I'm skilled and knowledgeable about supporting seniors, the disabled, and children with special needs. I own a small business that supports this population, www.ikorofwpa.com. I'm well versed in how to best support these areas. I understand caregiving and how hard it is to provide care can be. I know public programs for care, and I am considered an expert in care-related areas. I'm well versed in Alzheimer's and Dementia, and chronic health concerns. I attended Carlow University and earned a Master's Degree in Professional Counseling after working in sales and marketing after 25 years in business. I'm well versed in career-related concerns and career transitions.

26 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Psychologist. Over the past 25 years, I have provided mental health services and support to children and their families, helping clients gain control over emotional and behavioral dysregulation and learning difficulties. I worked for over a decade on the child and adolescent units of a psychiatric hospital. As the educational consultant, I assessed children carrying a variety of diagnoses including ADD, ODD, Tourettes Disorder, Autism, Intellectual Disability, Anorexia, Depression, OCD and others. Unique IEP's or 504 Plans were developed for students before their return to their home schools. I also worked in the public school sector as a school psychologist for twelve years in Pittsburgh, PA and for five years since moving to the west coast. I have administered and interpreted hundreds of psychoeducational tests over the years and while in person assessments are on hold during the pandemic, families may have questions about their child's school progress. My experience in both the medical and educational systems allowed me to gain a unique understanding of school systems from an educational and legal perspective as well as expertise in the the development and monitoring of a successful IEP. In private practice, my areas of advanced study include PTSD, Anger Management, Depression, and ADHD in both children and adults. The pandemic has affected all if us in ways we may not yet fully understand. And now we are all dealing with inflation and the related financial concerns. If you feel the need for support, this would be a good time to call.

Hello! I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and owner at Counseling Sphere LLC, an online private practice serving clients across PA. To see if we're the right fit, I encourage potential clients to cross reference me on: www.counselingsphere.com or search "Molly St. Cyr" on Psychology Today. You can also explore specifics about my style and approach on my business instagram page: @counselingsphere. *Friendly Disclaimer* for potential new clients. Working with me on Betterhelp is not “therapy on demand.” I view my work on on this platform the same way I operate in private practice: therapeutic work occurs during regularly scheduled live therapy sessions. I welcome clients to share journal entries and messages in the chat, however the processing around those messages will primarily be done during live sessions. If you've been matched with me, please be aware that I'll respond within 48 hours unless its a weekend or holiday, which may delay my response. I am only accepting new clients who prefer video or phone sessions, I am not accepting new live chat requests at this time and I do not view asynchronous chat messaging as a primary method of conducting therapy. In other words, if you'd like to primarily message your therapist: I'm not the one for you. There are other therapists on the platform who operate differently, so I encourage clients to explore who might best fit their needs and preferences. If this is all agreeable to you, keep on reading. For the past 9+ years, I've worked as a therapist in various settings and with clients experiencing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief & loss, and family conflict. Many times, concerns showing up in present day are not random, and are often rooted in unresolved trauma. I spent a chunk of my career specializing in helping clients who have experienced both chronic (long lasting) and acute (single incident) trauma. Let's chat more about the flexible definition of "trauma," and how past experiences might be impacting you! My Approach: My job as a therapist is to empower growth and hold space for clients in vulnerable moments. I recognize the importance of treating the whole person: body, mind, heart and spirit within each clients' unique context. Counseling is also centered around building a trusting relationship. Clients can expect to be greeted by a friendly face paired with a professional demeanor and flexible attitude. I have found it most beneficial to integrate different therapy techniques/interventions based on the needs of the client. What To Expect: The first few therapy sessions with a client are focused on information gathering, where I'm taking a thorough history of past and presenting concerns. Clients can expect thought-provoking questions which help them build new insights and themes. Ultimately a colorful picture is painted that illuminates how the client would like to move forward and where they'd like to see themselves. If you are ready to work together to create a healing path forward, you’re in the right place. It's an honor to walk alongside clients during some of their most vulnerable and empowering moments.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Laureldale. 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 Laureldale, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Laureldale 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 Laureldale 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.

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Laureldale due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

Laureldale 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 Laureldale 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 Laureldale 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 19605 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 Laureldale counselor?

Before seeing your Laureldale 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 Laureldale.

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 Laureldale 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 Laureldale 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 Laureldale, 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.

Laureldale 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.
