Welcome! It takes a lot of courage and strength to seek therapy , you should feel proud of yourself for taking the first step in reaching out. My name is Erica Holtz, M.A., LMFT and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Supervisor. I also have a Certificate in Child Sexual Abuse Treatment from Widener University. I graduated from La Salle University in 2007 after a year long internship at a family therapy agency in Philadelphia, where I continue to assist in training other therapists and interns. I also am an AAMFT Approved Supervisor, which means the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy required me to do an extensive training program to be able to supervise therapists who want to be licensed to practice marriage and family therapy. My therapeutic approach is based in Systems Theory, which is the basis for couples and family therapy. Systems theory differs from purely individual therapy models in that all affected parties are included in therapy, whether they are present in the sessions or not. This means there is a focus on the family relationships you had as a child and how they have affected current relationship issues. It focuses on patterns of behavior between people, and what is happening between people that maintains the problems. The first choice is to Include all parties affected in the problem (s) because it helps enhance the quality of relationships and create positive lasting changes often at a more rapid pace. However, I have done systemic work with individuals with great progress. My goal is to help individuals, families and couples who are struggling with painful emotions, distressing relationship problems and who feel “stuck”, confused or frustrated with their current life situation. I specialize in couples therapy, working with various types of families and working with individuals with trauma histories. I also work well with families who have a member with Autism. My therapeutic style is adaptable as well as empathetic . I often use humor and authenticity in my approach with clients, which allows the therapeutic relationship to grow and evolve by creating emotional safety from a "real" person. I have also been a client before, so I know what it is like to enter the therapy room feeling anxious, unsure, and vulnerable. I look forward to working with you and creating lasting change and growth!

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed professional counselor located in Pennsylvania and have been in practice for about 30 years. My first career was in music. After leaving New York CIty, moving to PA, and starting a family, I became involved with a postpartum support group and , a few years later, decided to get an MA in Counseling. I feel most comfortable seeing myself as a work partner with my client. You bring your story, and together we explore what changes you might want to make in yourself and in the direction of your narrative to promote your well-being. I have training in many modalities, all of which work better after establishing a space for you that feels safe, nonjudgmental, and respectful, We are not often given the encouragement and the opportunity to talk about ourselves, to pull over for an amount of time each week and make sure we are living as well and deeply as we want to be. That is what therapy can offer, and I hope that the knowledge and experience I've gathered through the decades, both in and out of the office, may be helpful to you.

I am a professional counselor licensed in Pennsylvania and Maryland, as well as nationally certified. I am also certified in school counseling k-12. I have worked with varying age groups and populations. I started out my professional career in a social service department in a hospital. Following this, I have worked in schools, as well as various mental health agencies. Most recently I was the director of a mental health and drug and alcohol facility. During my career as a clinical psychotherapist, I strived to become a very well-rounded clinician, working with multiple modalities along with ongoing continued education to provide the best care to those I served. I am in the process of earning my PhD. While I do utilize multiple modalities such as DBT, CBT, and SFT, I believe in a person-centered approach overall, as each individual is unique and thus deserves the approach and style that best fits their own unique needs. Additionally, I have worked with addictions extensively both individually and in a group format. I have taken extensive training in gambling addiction and have run IOP for drug and alcohol groups for many years. I believe wholeheartedly in providing validation and helping my clients understand the importance of self-validation. No matter what the struggle is my clients are facing, I believe that they have the strength within them to overcome their obstacles. I strive to help them find that strength.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a New Baltimore 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.

New Baltimore 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 New Baltimore therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

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

Before seeing your New Baltimore 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 New Baltimore.

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 New Baltimore 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 New Baltimore 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 New Baltimore, 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.
