As an LPC who has worked in partial hospitalization programs, led group therapy, and helped youth, adolescents, adults, and seniors in an outpatient setting, I know how hard it can be to reach out for support.
“What if this doesn’t work out?” “Why did I say the wrong thing?” “It’s never going to get better.” Whether it’s uneasiness about a new job, a break up, or, say, a global pandemic leading us to spend more alone time than ever before, when an opportunity for anxiety presents itself, our thoughts can run worryingly rampant. While it may seem impossible in the moment, you have the strength to control how these thoughts influence your feelings before they turn into actions. Sometimes all you need is a hand.

Finding a therapist can be an overwhelming task. You don't want to pick some name off a list. If you are looking for help, you might feel at the end of your rope, you don't know what else to do, like nobody understands or "gets" you, or that you need some simple guidance. We can help. Therapy isn't magic. Most people intellectually know what they need to do, they just need guidance, encouragement, or new skills to get there.

It usually takes couples about 6 years to get help for problems in their relationship or marriage. While there are many reasons for that, that is a long time to be unhappy. Couples/marriage counseling works, even after infidelity and other significant events. Sexual and intimate issues are also commonly experienced but difficult to discuss. I have many years of experience and training regarding these challenges and create a safe an comfortable environment for addressing them. For individuals, I deal with the range of relationship issues, depression, anxiety, sexuality, and recovery from addiction.

I believe that my role as a clinician is to facilitate a safe and empowering therapeutic environment, which allows clients to explore thought and behavior patterns that may no longer be serving them. Through education and individualized interventions, I work together with my clients to support them in developing the skills needed to reach their self-identified goals for healing and peace. Although we cannot experience peace in every moment, everyone deserves to experience moments of peace.

No one escapes life without experiencing worry at some point. However, if you are consumed with debilitating worry and irrational fear about things you can’t control and it’s intruding on your social life, work performance, and general happiness, you are experiencing more than just typical stress. Anxiety is draining and colors your every thought. You may feel anxious about your future, experience constant worry about your loved ones, or feel anxious without knowing why. You may experience several physical symptoms like stomach pain, headaches, and muscle tension. You feel like it is impossible to relax.

Whether you're seeking help for yourself or a loved one, taking the first step toward recovery can be overwhelming. It takes courage to reach out to another and ask for help. You have just taken that first step! Soon you won't have to walk the path alone any further. Whatever challenge you are facing, it will be far more manageable if you have someone at your side to share the load. Relationship problems, anxiety, depression or preventing substance relapse does not have to stop you from living the life that you dream for yourself.

What type of Ocean mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ocean?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
