Hey, welcome. I know the process of trying to find the right therapist can feel overwhelming. When I’ve looked for therapists for myself or as referrals for others, what I generally want to know is who the therapist is, what kind of person they are. Will they get me? Will they judge me? Are they going to actually call me on my stuff, but, in a nice way? These questions make sense. Therapy is vulnerable, it can be raw and real in ways we generally aren’t, even in very close relationships. Change is often hard and sometimes really scary but if you’re ready, I will meet you there.

One thing this pandemic did if nothing else is it made us turn inward. What happens when we turn inward, sometimes we may not like what we see or we may want to change things. As a black female therapist, I enjoy helping clients process inner child wounds whether that be related to trauma, racism, or other layers of societal expectations. Clients and I strive to create collaborative goals toward healing and acceptance of self. We can be both in a place in of acceptance and transition towards our healthiest self.

Life comes with many challenges and obstacles that may seem impossible to overcome. We all have an innate need to succeed and prove ourselves as worthy and deserving of good. There may be times when we feel overwhelmed, self-conscious, or inadequate and we don't want to be a burden to others, so we don't ask for help. It's at these times when we need that support most. The truth is, we all face these challenges and with some self-reflection, mental energy, and focus, we can overcome those barriers and develop skills to help ourselves that become second nature.

PLEASE MAKE INITIAL CONTACT VIA E-MAIL. Do you feel like a square peg in a round hole? Are you out of touch with who you are and what you really want? Do you sometimes lie awake nights worrying, "Is this IT?" You know you need a change, but you're not sure how to take the first step. Somewhere along the way, you may have started doing what others thought was best for you instead of trusting your own gut. Perhaps you're unhappy because you and your job aren't a good fit. Maybe you feel overwhelmed with stress from all sides.

What type of Schenectady 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 Schenectady?
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.
