Welcome and hello! My Name is Adam and I am an Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I am also a nationally board-certified counselor (NCC) and school counselor (NCSC). I have experience working with children as young as 6 and adults as old as 76, and everything in between! For the past decade, I have worked in various settings with teens, college students, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse and addiction, relationship and family conflicts, grief and loss, and life transitions. I help people through the lens of narrative therapy, which means you and I will start our time together talking about your personal stories – the people, the places, and the experiences that make up who you are – and as time progresses, we will process the themes of these stories and how you understand the way the impact your life. I also use strategies and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI). In simple terms, most of my work has been supporting incredible people who are experiencing distressing life circumstances and transitions. I have witnessed many of these people successfully navigate these challenges and thrive through the counseling process. If you are struggling with diagnosed mental health difficulties or just a hard season of your life, I would be honored to support and help you discover healing and growth. I look forward to working with you!

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) outside of Phila. with over 12 years of clinical experience. I've worked with individuals, couples and families in both in-patient and out-patient settings dealing with a wide range of mental health and life issues.

My goal in providing coaching and therapy is always to promote effective solutions for whatever issues clients face. My style is warm, empathic and tailored to the individual. I am a strong advocate for self directed learning, having homeschooled my son and daughter for 9 years. I bring that same philosophy to facilitating growth in all I work with. My work with clients is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidenced based approach to problems in living. If you would like to have a more valued and vital life, have issues or problems you struggle with, and want to reduce your struggling and increase valued living, then ACT is for you! I will collaborate with you to promote psychological flexibility and self awareness.. I utilize the ACT Matrix to collaborate with clients in discovering how to move toward who and what is important to them.

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.

Are you looking for a male therapist who has experience working with children, adolescents and adults?

I enjoy helping individuals discover their hidden strengths as they work towards personal growth. When working with couples I focus a great deal on communication and really hearing what your partner is saying. When working with children and teens I work hard to find the individual talents, strengths and interests of each of my youth, to make individual plans and sessions tailored for their unique goals. I am also understanding that the youth I work with do not operate in isolation, and incorporate caregivers in all treatment plans, while also assisting them with the tools necessary for sustained progress.

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

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Yorkana 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.

Yorkana 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 Yorkana 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 Yorkana 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 17406 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. 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 Yorkana counselor?

Before seeing your Yorkana 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 Yorkana.

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 Yorkana 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 Yorkana 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 Yorkana, 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.

Yorkana 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.
