To my future clients, wow I'm so glad you've crossed my page. I'm not sure what it took to get to this point, but I am sure glad you did. I could give you the long spill of why I think this process is helpful and enlightening, but I won't. What I will tell you is; you are capable, you are strong, you are resilient and going through the psychotherapy process I hope you discover that too! You deserve to be seen, to feel valued and to be heard. Life has a way of knocking the wind out of you and causing you to question your existence. Resilience is one thing we all share; the capability of getting back up and breathe again. Breathe. I am a licensed therapist that believes through deep inner work; perspectives can be challenged, new patterns emerge and change happens. Life can be fulfilling again. I believe in empowering you through this therapeutic relationship and help you develop the skills that are already within you. I utilize an eclectic approach drawing from structural, solution-focused, emotionally focused and cognitive behavioral therapy. My sole purpose as a therapist is to show up for YOU, come alongside you and help tackle the barriers that are potentially in your way. I want to help you gain deeper understanding and find freedom to become your authentic self.

Counseling is a journey. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, the opportunity to copilot as we work through the barriers and forge forward in that journey is my motivation. Although it can feel overwhelming and counterproductive to add yet another thing onto our to do list; being intentional with our time and using it to work on oneself and access resources can expedite healing. Thus, it makes sense that when our tank is low and we are faced with endless battles, we would benefit from something extra introduced into our lives. By creating a therapeutic relationship and providing a space where we are able to take the time to explore, confront and address your identified needs and goals we may be able to form a catalyst to a healthier lifestyle. I work to provide opportunities for my clients to obtain insight and practice skills to thrive through evidence-based approaches.

32 years of experience as a therapist

I am a Pennsylvania licensed psychologist and hold a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. I have over 35 years of experience as a therapist. It takes courage to begin therapy. I also know that therapy sessions tend to exclusively focus on problems, on what is not working. I will encourage you to see the full picture, define your strengths, and use them to reach your goals. My interest and experience include depression and trauma both physical and racial. I also help individuals whose career or interpersonal success is blocked by factors such as low self-esteem, procrastination, or impostor syndrome. Multicultural issues have always been of interest to me over the years. My caseload reflects a wide range of diversity. This interest and experience are heightened by my interracial and international family. While this does inform me of issues that others face, I also know that all members of a group are not the same and in the service of my work and my clients, I make no assumptions based upon how one looks. During our sessions, I want to hear your story. I also encourage you to question any ideas or techniques that are offered. In my work, I combine cognitive therapy techniques with mindfulness. In therapy sessions, we will explore your thoughts about yourself and the world. Unfortunately, as human beings, we are hard-wired to focus on negative interactions with the world and our missteps. I will then use mindfulness techniques to help clear away the anxieties that fog up the mind so that you can focus on what is truly happening. It helps one to be less influenced by trends or social pressures and allows one to live one's own life, to not absorb the noise chaos, and confusion that is so prevalent. I enjoy the respect of my colleagues I genuinely enjoy my work and often feel that I was born to be a therapist. I bring respect for you, expertise, warmth, and humor to my sessions. It is your right to understand suggestions that I offer, and I encourage you to ask for clarification. I look forward to being part of your journey. I bring respect and integrity to my work, and I abide by the ethical guidelines of the Pennsylvania State Board of Psychology. As such, I am duty bound to collect certain information about you. This information includes your identification, location, emergency contact information and any past and present mental and physical issues. This information must be completed before we can set up our first appointment. While I urge you not to be discouraged by this process, I also must confess that when these regulations first became implemented that I sometimes felt frustrated by having to complete the information prior to seeing my health care providers. But it clearly was in my best interest. This process is here to protect you. Once again, I look forward to the opportunity to help you feel empowered and effective in dealing with challenges in your life.

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Seven Springs therapist?

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

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 Seven Springs 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 Seven Springs, 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.

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.
