As the world begins to move toward the period of "post pandemic" we may find ourselves struggling. Reports of anxiety and depression are on the rise, particularly among children. Managing our own feelings alongside our loved ones can also feel extremely overwhelming. I feel it is important to have an objective party with whom you can share and process your difficulties while improving healthy coping skills.

Hi there, welcome to my profile. This personal statement is a challenge for me to write because the truth is that therapy has to start with a therapist you can feel comfortable with and click with in a way that makes you feel safe. Sometimes you can tell right away that your therapist is someone you are a good match with or not, sometimes it takes longer (especially with teens). Please feel free to reach out to me and we can spend some time on the phone to see if you feel comfortable enough to make a first appointment.

Admitting you can’t do everything on your own, is the first step toward achieving wellness in a fast paced, demanding world. The good news is, asking for help gets easier with a little practice. The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a fresh perspective is often the first and most profound step toward developing the mental muscle needed to become stronger.

Growth and change are possible. People are constantly changing, but those changes can be difficult to notice or appreciate. Our best selves are present, here and now. Working collaboratively, we can identify obstacles that block potential and limit happiness. Problems with mood and our relationships impact our feelings of worth, confidence, and motivation. If you feel unsatisfied, experience frustrating relationships or spend too much time worrying, there is hope.

I believe that compassion for oneself is the key to feeling better. When we can stop idealizing and stop trying to be what we're not, we can learn to have compassion and acceptance of who we really are. Accepting our human condition with its limitations, leads to self-knowledge, which leads to growth and ultimately to comfort within ourselves.

What type of Pleasantville 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 Pleasantville?
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.
