Hello all. Thank you reaching out , My name is Donald and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Advanced Addiction Counselor as well as a certified YOGA instructor. I enjoy working with others to achieve a happy values based life. Life happens and sometimes we do need some help to get back on track. Sometimes this is brief intervention other times it is an on-going struggle. Either way I can be there to assist you on your personal journey. I have my own experiences with life issues that I share and draw from to assist others as well as an education from The University of Pittsburgh where i received my masters degree in Social Work. Over time I have developed a rather "laid back" approach to therapy, and some have told me I have a calming influence. My experience includes EMDR ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) nd Motivational interviewing. I am also a huge fan of mindfulness (meditation) which has proven efficacy for many life problems. I draw from my experience with yoga and meditation to assist folks with anxiety/depression, grief, and trauma. I graduated U of Pitt Magna Cum Laude and Golden Key Honor Society as Masters in Social Work and certifications in Drug and Alcohol and Mental Health. I have spent much of my career working with addicts, homeless people, veterans suffering from PTSD and readjustment issues. I have recently retired from the Veterans Administration where i worked with the veterans with a wide range of issues. I have also worked as a therapist in Drug Rehabilitation in patient settings. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how I may be able to help. SPECIALTIES: Stress/Anxiety Trauma/abuse Grief Depression Anger Management general life issues (not fitting in..) My response time is very flexible as I am mostly retired but my preference is early morning, later afternoons or evenings. I can also be available later at night with advance notice/scheduling.

Hello! I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania with over 20 years of experience. I have worked with adults over a wide spectrum of issues and life problems and look forward to assisting you in developing goals for your overall success. Much of my experience includes work in preventing or combatting stress, especially career or job-related issues, anxiety, relationship issues, addictions disorders and co-dependency, grief counseling, critical incident debriefing, and working to resolve issues surrounding physical disabilities or trauma. In the past three years much of my work has included helping others deal with or prevent the negative impact of covid-19. I tend to work in a solution-focused framework, helping remove immediate obstacles to allow further work on underlying or longterm issues. I also utilize Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, especially in working through addictions-based problems, to assist in dissolving irrational beliefs that may be holding a client back from fulfillment of goals and dreams. The atmosphere of sessions is one of acceptance and not of judgment for what may have brought a person to talk with me, or what has come before. It takes courage to realize there is a problem requiring assistance and also to believe that the help is available. By tackling that step you have begun your journey. I would be honored to assist you along the way.

As someone who has spent more than half their life in therapy and now as a therapeutic professional, I recognize and honor that therapists come in all shapes, sizes, mind-frames and approaches. As a practitioner, I approach the therapeutic relationship with an open mind and welcoming spirit. I show up as a human first, inviting you to do the same. Our time spent together is a place for you to express yourself and feel things as they come to you. Then, we can work together to process them. This is your space and your time and I am honored that you are willing to share it with me. MY FOCUS AREAS Religious Trauma Syndrome | This area of specialty is primarily focused on helping anyone who has left a damaging religious practice. We can work to find hope, instill belief in self and reframe locus of control. Grief | Loss is an unfortunate guarantee in our lives. Together, we can work to remember and honor who you have lost and make way for a path towards healing. Trauma Support and Recovery | Re-centering understanding of trauma throughout the lifespan is our goal. We will work together toward your recovery so you can thrive post-trauma. I am particularly excited to work with individuals who deal with housing injustice, financial trauma and disordered relationships. Co-occurring disorders | While not certified as a CADC, I have professional experience with folx who have a mental health diagnosis and a substance use disorder. My role is to support you with the interaction between the two and wherever you are in the recovery spectrum. MY IDEAL CLIENT My ideal client is any person who is willing to show up and share their struggles. Recognizing the need for support and actually asking for it are huge accomplishments. I enjoy working with folx who want to explore themselves, are open to the therapeutic process and want to work with someone who is not as stoic as therapists are portrayed in the media. If you enjoy honest communication, gentle feedback and have a desire to care for yourself, we would be a good match. GOAL As a LGBTQ+ and queer-identified therapist, I seek to create a confidential space for clients from diverse identities and backgrounds where truths can be shared, sorrows can be honored and joy can be found. I am affirming and celebratory of all who fall in the LGBTQ+ community. Sessions with me take place in a “come as you are” setting. Fear and shame are not practiced here. As a practitioner focused in cultural humility, please know I will seek to educate myself on any topics in which I am not well-informed--leaving room for you to be able to speak about and process any and all identities, sexualities and rituals. APPROACH As a therapist, I believe you are the expert in your own life. I will work with you to identify your strengths and abilities when it comes to any issues you face, both past and present. My approach is strengths-based, in order to assist you with identifying and working towards your goals. Additionally, I tend to operate from a queer, feminist, trauma-informed approach, but I feel it is important to always be learning and growing as a therapist, to bring the highest level of care to you and all the people who work with me. Professionally, I feel called to work and support work toward ending all forms of systemic oppression, including racism, classism, sexism, transphobia, fatphobia, body shaming and heterosexism. Our journey together is inextricably linked to the world in which we live and the communities where we love and learn. When it comes to sessions, I strive to be an active listener and work in a kind, direct manner to help you use your strengths and address any weaknesses in order to replace tired practices with invigorating and restoring ones. By utilizing engaging, open questions, I seek to help you more clearly understand what things fall into and out of our range of responsibility. This makes way for more present thinking, greater ownership of feelings and often can help increase identifications of self-worth and dignity.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed New Cumberland 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 New Cumberland 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 New Cumberland 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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 New Cumberland, 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). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. 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 as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in New Cumberland above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT).

You can also try a New Cumberland therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 New Cumberland 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 lot of people in PA, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a New Cumberland 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

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. A New Cumberland 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 New Cumberland, 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.

New Cumberland 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.
