In my 16 years of experience as a therapist, I have discovered that each of us has problems that at times become overwhelming. Many of us know that we are capable, but there are times when each of us find ourselves struggling to cope with certain issues. My counseling approach acknowledges this similarity in all of us. My approach to counseling embraces the reality that all of us will both need and offer help as we journey through life. More importantly, I embrace the value that my clients place upon the issues they present to me. From my perspective, any issue that you feel will improve your well being deserves the benefit of therapy to help you get there. In my practice, I take a non-directive, practical approach to helping. I acknowledge your strengths and embrace you as your own greatest resource. I recognize that each of us experience our distress in our own way. My approach involves listening to you. I believe that therapy is a place for growth and new perspectives. My clients have come to me for many reasons, but much of the time it is because although help is needed, they don't want to be a burden on friends or worry family members that might otherwise be supports. My approach involves exploring your difficult experiences, processing emotions, and building strategies to help you cope with life's challenges.

Hello, I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania; I believe that there are solutions within us, and sometimes a guide is needed to unearth them. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music Therapy from Mansfield University in 1992 and became a Board Certified in Music Therapy within the same year. In 1997 I completed a Masters of Arts with a concentration in Music Psychotherapy from Temple University. Seeking to find a balance between the arts and science, I returned to school for a Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Behavioral Analysis through Penn State’s Worldwide Campus (2008) and a year later became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. My therapeutic approach is rooted in expressive arts techniques with the guiding principles of trauma-informed care. I use specific therapy interventions, including the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music, the Mandala MARI Art technique, Positive Psychology, and Attachment-Based therapies. These techniques are woven together in a creative tapestry for individual growth and wellness. My areas of interest include: 1) Performance Anxiety; 2) Depression; 3) Sleep Disturbance; 4) Parent-Child Relational Problems; 5) Stress Management; 6) Compassion Fatigue; and 7) Vicarious Trauma

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Wormleysburg 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 Wormleysburg 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 Wormleysburg 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.

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 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.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Wormleysburg 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 Wormleysburg 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 Wormleysburg, 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.

Wormleysburg has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

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.
