My approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and psychodynamic therapies, wherein we will explore methods of helping you to find a happier and more functional way-of-life.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

Welcome! I like to think counseling is a wonderful journey to help explore yourself and develop helpful coping skills when facing difficulty in life. I am a licensed professional counselor with over 7 years of experience in the field. I have a Master of Arts degree in counseling from Waynesburg University in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the State of New Hampshire, and I am also a DBT Linehan-Board of Certification, Certified Clinician and an EMDR-Trained Therapist. I have worked with many different individuals, including those who struggle with depression, anxiety, addictions, and trauma. I think of counseling as a process of working together to develop an insightful mind set into who you are and how to make meaning from your experiences. My counseling style involves a high level of active listening upon my part and an overall collaborative effort to help you meet your specific goals and needs. I tend to practice from a person-centered, humanistic perspective. I also have specific training in dialectical behavior therapy, which is an incredibly helpful combination of developing skills in handling highly stressful situations in a healthy way, as well as improve upon communication skills and regulating emotions. I also work with individuals using EMDR therapy as a modality to help resolve unprocessed traumatic experiences. I believe everyone's story and experiences create strengths that can be helpful in feeling better. It takes a lot of strength and courage to start the process of counseling. Something you might want to know about me is that I've been in the client's seat in the counseling relationship and understand just how much strength and courage it takes to talk with a counselor. If you're ready to start the journey, I'm here to support you. I look forward to working with you!

20 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed therapist in both Maine (LCPC) and Pennsylvania (LPC), and have been practicing in the counseling field for over twenty years. I was raised in a family focused on human services, as my mother was a therapist and my father was a special education teacher for emotionally challenged students. I began my own work in the field while still in high school, volunteering with child survivors of sexual abuse, moving on to complete Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology. I have worked with people of varying ages and of diverse backgrounds over the years and in a variety of settings. I have been an outpatient therapist and a residential clinician, a wilderness therapist and a marriage counselor. I have held therapy in offices, schools, family homes, and deep in the forests of northern Wisconsin. Over the years I have come to believe in one thing above all others: no matter what the environment or the form of therapy, the individual strength and resilience of the human spirit is paramount. From this perspective, my role as a therapist must be to trust the individual as to the direction they need to travel, and to assist along the way by opening doors and exploring options rather than dictating any one path. I draw on a number of clinical approaches in my therapy work; including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Motivational Interviewing. I also have experience with psychodynamic approaches with specific clients. I believe the approach is best matched to the individual, rather than the individual to the approach. I therefore tailor my approach to the strengths and disposition with whom I am working, and remain flexible in this approach as the work progresses. Growth and development are cornerstones of therapy, and I believe this is true too of the therapist. I remain excited to grow and learn, and continue my own education through trainings and regular engagement with literature. My best teachers, however, continue to be those I work with. Therapy is a partnership, and while I have much to offer in the therapeutic relationship, rarely do I conclude work with an individual quite the same as when we started together. I look forward to walking with you on your journey for a little while, and will feel honored and wish you well when our ways eventually part. Most of all I hope the part of your journey we call therapy will be enlightening, strengthening, and yielding of the peace we all seek and deserve.

3 years of experience as a mental health therapist

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.

Hi! My name is Jasmine and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Pennsylvania. I have worked for over 14 years in the behavioral and mental health field; in settings such as hospitals, daycares, schools, and outpatient mental health facilities. I specialize in treating children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing challenges related to ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and trauma. My approach to therapy is an integration of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, person-centered, and narrative. The evidence-based treatment modalities utilized are determined by my client's individual needs and personal goals. I appreciate research and utilize only evidence-based treatment modalities that have proven to be effective for many who are suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, and having difficulty on their life journey following a loss. Sometimes life's daily demands can become a bit too much. As a result, one may feel overwhelmed, defeated, and the stress may begin to negatively impact relationships, job performance, self-esteem, and overall quality of life. If you can relate to this in any way, be encouraged to know that you certainly are not alone. I am here and I am here to help.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a West Middlesex 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.

West Middlesex 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 West Middlesex 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 West Middlesex 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.

No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your West Middlesex 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 West Middlesex.

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 West Middlesex 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 West Middlesex 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 West Middlesex, 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.

West Middlesex 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.
