Hello, I am Dana Rummery and I look forward to getting to know you! I am an Art Therapist (masters level clinician, registered with the American Art Therapy Association and board certified MA, ATR-BC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), licensed in Pennsylvania with 18 years of professional experience. I have experience working with patients and families managing terminal and chronic illness within the hospice setting and in their homes, helping clients with stress and anxiety, caregiver fatigue and family conflict, coping with grief and loss, & coping with life changes. I have worked with people of all ages, using both verbal and therapeutic arts interventions, to cope with the difficulties of life and find joy again. The work I do with clients is goal oriented and focused on what brings you joy, creating and finding meaning, focusing on what can bring you closer to who you want to be and who you want to connect with. I work from a humanistic/person centered and strength based approach. When life feels difficult it can be hard to see and engage with the parts of ourselves and our lives that bring us meaning and connection. We will focus on what you want your life to look like. Acknowledging the traumas, difficulties, and barriers are an important step of the process, but we will primarily focus on what you can change and are willing to change after discussing those barriers. I can introduce a variety of treatment interventions to address your concerns until you find a path forward that fits for you. I am also trained in eco/nature based therapy and find that engaging in the natural world can be a useful approach for some people. If you are grieving the loss of someone important to you we will focus on coping, connection, and memorializing your loved one. No matter how recent or distant your loss is it can be difficult figure out how to moved through the world without your person. For those interested in therapeutic arts interventions, I will work with you to come up with projects/ tasks that can help bring clarity. You don't need to have any experience with creating or much in the way of art supplies to engage in therapeutic art reflection. If you have no interest in creating, that's ok too, my job is to be present to your needs and help you create and engage with your goals to live more fully. When life is hard and you know you need help, it can be really difficult to ask for help. The fact that you're here looking for help is huge, and you should be proud of yourself. I look forward to helping you!

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of New Jersey. I have a doctorate degree in Psychology and Behavioral Health with a specialization in Education and Counseling Psychology. The primary focus of my practice is to help my clients to reach their potentials. I have been privileged to work in the helping profession for the past fifteen years. I believe that the entire process begins by identifying those stumbling blocks in the lives of the individuals that prevented them from achieving their desired goals. I maintain a high level of openness with my clients having realized over the year that what matters most in therapy is the client /therapist relationship. I truly believe that it is the relationship that heals. My practice incorporates the client-centered, non-directive approach, the cognitive behavior approach and the eclectic approach. This is important to me because every individual is unique and should be treated as an individual by entering into each clients own world. The use of compassion, empathy and unconditional positive regard are the core elements of treatment in my practice. I specialize in psychotherapy with individuals of all ages with various mental health diagnoses and behavioral issues. I have extensive experience working with families and children and I also have a great interest in community development.

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

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

Mercersburg 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 Mercersburg 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 Mercersburg 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.

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

Before seeing your Mercersburg 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 Mercersburg.

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 Mercersburg 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 Mercersburg 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 Mercersburg, 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.

Mercersburg 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.
