20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I have a passion for counseling which began over 25 years ago. I have lots of experience with just about any age, diagnosis, and issue that are problems for people. A recent client said to me that I "was her lighthouse" in the foggiest time in her life. Another client recently told me that I helped him "spread his wings" and see how strong and wide they really are. Another client described my style as "intuitively accurate" and that her work with me was "life changing." I have a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from Temple University, and a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. (PA License # 006032) My style of counseling is individualized to fit the client. I am told my approach is warm, engaging, and supportive. I am solutions oriented and often utilize a cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and strengths based approach. I specialize in anxiety difficulties, confidence and self esteem, relationships and communication, emotional trauma, and mood disorders. I know there are many counselors to choose from, but I think you will find me to be able to quickly determine what you need and get you comfortably back on track to living the best life you can. And I won't quit until you are satisfied. Whether you choose to work with me or someone else, I wish you the very best life has to offer.

ABOUT ME Hello, I have been working with clients, and families, for the past 20 years. My experience includes dealing with a variety of concerns that impact their lives. I believe that who we are and what we are have been, to some degree, influenced by others which is sometimes out of our control. Who we are, our identity, can sometimes get lost and we just need a listening ear to get us back on the right path. My focus in counseling will always be that we have choices in the path we take in our lives, which empowers us to regain control of our lives: regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in while on this journey called life. A friend of mine said to me during one of our conversations, “the time you wake up in the morning is your morning, but you need to wake up.” This is your morning because you have reached out and I am glad that you did. I look forward to working with you

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Mountville 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 Mountville due to a higher cost of living.

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

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

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

Before seeing your Mountville 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 Mountville.

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 Mountville 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 Mountville 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 Mountville, 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.

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.
