My philosophy is that therapy is more than just giving you a space to talk; therapy is about getting you results. If you are working through symptoms of depression, lack of motivation, anxiety or self-esteem issues we'll work on getting a good understanding of it, tools to manage it and perspectives to address it. Whether you've been feeling down or simply trying to figure yourself out, progress and relief are your ultimate goal and we're going to work on that together. My focus is on helping you figure out your next step, learn the next tool, or develop the new insight that will help you get to where you’d like to be. I collaborate with you to make sure your goals are being met. You and I will check in with each other often to make sure we are moving in the direction you'd like! I take a Client-Centered approach and utilize the latest advancements in mental health care to treat clients as individuals with unique needs. What that means is that I will meet you where you're at by prompting you with exploratory questions and then also provide you with practical feedback/interventions/techniques to help you facilitate the changes you're looking to make. Bettering yourself can start today!

10 years of experience as a therapist

Hello! My name is Emily Cyburt, and I have been an outpatient mental health therapist since 2013, and have been licensed since 2019 in the state of Pennsylvania as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Master of Science degree in Community Counseling. I am a Certified Personality Disorder Treatment Provider (C-PD) with training to treat individuals with personality disorders, as well as help those being affected by someone in their life with a personality disorder. I am also a Certified Integrative Mental Health Provider (CIMHP) trained in evidence based holistic approaches to prevent and treat common mental health problems. Additionally, I am recognized as a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) with the National Board of Certified Counselors since 2018, a voluntary national certification, and the largest national counselor certification in the world, that identifies counselors who have met national standards set by the profession. I prefer to work with teens, young adults, and middle aged persons. I am most comfortable and competent in treating those with anxiety, depression, stress, low self esteem/self confidence, relationship/marital problems, and family problems. The areas in which I have the least, or minimal experience in treating are trauma-focused, grief and loss, and post-partum issues/depression. My counseling style is non-Christian based, truthful and honest. I believe change can only occur through dedication to the process, hard work outside of session, honest reflection, and working together as a team. My approach combines Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Psychoeducational, and Rational-Emotive counseling. But what does all that mean? Person-centered therapy is talk therapy wherein you, the client, does most of the talking. I will not judge or try to interpret what you say, but may restate your words in an attempt to fully understand your thoughts and feelings. CBT places an emphasis on changing thinking patterns. Through exercises in the session, as well as “homework” exercises outside of sessions, clients are helped to develop coping skills, whereby they can learn to change their own thinking, problematic emotions, and behavior. Psychoeducation helps people better understand (and become accustomed to living with) mental health conditions. It is generally known that those who have a thorough understanding of the challenges they are facing as well as knowledge of personal coping ability, internal and external resources, and their own areas of strength are often better able to address difficulties, feel more in control of the condition(s), and have a greater internal capacity to work toward mental and emotional well-being. REBT is an action-oriented approach that’s focused on helping people deal with irrational beliefs and learn how to manage their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a healthier, more realistic way. Using these approaches, we will work together to create a plan and goals to help you achieve success. It takes courage to seek help and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Pennsylvania with over 20 years experience providing mental health services to clients of all ages. I am a developmentalist at heart, believing in the whole of our life experience making us who we are today. Over the years my clients have ranged from age 2 to age 80 and I have seen individuals and families in settings such as outpatient, inpatient, treatment facilities, hospitals, schools and residential. More important than approach or type of therapy is the relationship that you form with a counselor. Research indicates that the client/therapist relationship is the biggest indicator of success in therapy. In other words, safety and comfort in the therapeutic relationship is key. I use an eclectic approach to counseling which means that I draw from various types of therapies to best meet your needs. Each person is unique and to be most effective, each approach needs to match the individual. I use aspects of Person-Centered Therapy , CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Solution Focused Therapy, IPNB (Interpersonal Neurobiology), Dyadic Developmental Therapy, Trauma Focused CBT and Psychodynamic Therapy. It takes strength to reach out for counseling, especially if you are not feeling particularly strong. I will join you by whatever means of communicating is best for you; video, messaging, phone or live chat. Together we will move toward your goals. I am available to communicate daily and look forward to working with you.

The helping profession which is often referred to as therapy or counseling has been my life-long goal. My desire has made me a patient, attentive, and non-judgmental listener and has shaped my approach to understanding clients’ needs better. I am also supportive and seek positivity in every situation presented. I thrive to make clients feel safe including even reluctant clients to find their own way during treatment but also help clients to learn how to take personal responsibility to take charge of their behavior. I facilitate, encourage, empower, and help the client discover their potential to overcome barriers to treatment and find solutions and subsequently heal. I utilize approaches that are tailored to the client dependent on the issues, goals, and outcomes. Clients must be willing to participate to reach enlightenment to help them understand themselves in a new way and break from their own poor mindset and maladaptive behaviors. I hold a master’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in mental health counseling and am a licensed professional counselor in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey with 10 years of experience helping children, adolescents, adults, and families. I am a multicultural counselor who believes that endogenous factors can control individual behavior. Hence, when clients realize and acknowledge the inside factor, it eventually can bring about healing. That is, I am not there to prove my client wrong but help them find their own way out of their self-entanglement or damaging belief. No one approach fits all clients. The therapeutic alliance that is the client-therapist relationship will become the greatest change agent-Trust, genuineness, and participation.

As someone who has committed to my own personal growth, I understand the importance of feeling comfortable, seen, and accepted, within therapy. I am best known for my creative and flexible integration of skills, providing effective approaches tailored to each client. I am licensed in Pennsylvania with 12 years of professional work experience. I appreciate that addressing life’s challenges can be uncomfortable, especially with someone you don’t know. I am committed to supporting you in your journey. I work best with highly motivated clients who are aware of their goals, curious about their barriers, and open to collaboration. Individuals who are receptive to gentle-challenging and feedback coupled with compassion, validation, and encouragement, are a great match for my therapeutic style. I also thrive with clients who are interested in learning more about themselves. I wish all clients knew that growth in their relationship with themselves and others is possible. It might take becoming uncomfortable and vulnerable or attempting multiple interventions, but with commitment, hope, and learning, it is possible. If you are highly motivated to improve your relationship with yourself, and those around you, schedule an appointment with me today.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

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

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

Therapists in Malvern, 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).

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 or medication as treatment, or perform psychological assessments and other psychiatric services.

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

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

Malvern therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Malvern 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 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 Malvern.

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 from a therapist. A Malvern 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 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 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 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 Malvern, 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.

Malvern 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.
