Sean's personal warmth and sense of humor put me at ease. He really listens. His spirituality grounds him and is important to him but he doesn't push it at all. I find him relatable, encouraging, supportive while also asking some really important questions. He lets me take my time responding. He always lets me know how I can reach him if necessary between appointments. I felt safe and understood.

More about me
Years in Practice: 3
HI everyone! Glad that you reached out. My name is Sean Butler and I am a licensed clinical social worker who loves to work with others to achieve a happy life. As we move through life, we sometimes are effected by mental health --- I rather use the term emotional wellbeing issues. I am here to help you as a partner in this journey. Over the years, from my personal experiences with therapy and education I have been able to create a therapeutic style, which is inviting and warm. I have experience utilizing several modalities including CBT, Psychoanalytic, Mindfulness and Meditation, which I will use in a person-centered manner. I have worked with clients who are affected by multiple emotional well- being issues: depression, anxiety, bipolar, and addictions are some of my favorite emotional well-being issues that I love to work with. I have learned depression can be defined as either a need not meet or loss of purpose in life: anxiety is the fear of the unknown: and with regard to bipolar, if we can harness the positive attributes of this, you will have the tools to create a great life!
Following is some more personal information about me: I was born in Royal Oak, Michigan; from age one to age six I lived in England (both my parents were born in Ireland), and I have one brother that is four years younger than me. When we returned to the “States,” I lived in New Jersey. I went to Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, North Carolina ( the first time—apparently I forgot to go back—it was the late 70s), then returned to New Jersey where I began a career as a licensed/assistant chief engineer in power plants in New Jersey. In 1984, I moved to the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania, had three children, and then experienced divorced. In 2010, I chose to follow a dream created while in therapy (thank you Dee) to become a therapist and help others. So I returned to school (thank God I had 54 Credits from Belmont Abbey) gaining my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychology from Desales University and Masters in Social Work from Marywood University. Since 2017, my wife and I live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia and my full-time job is working with people at a local agency.
In closing, I am looking forward to meeting you and walking with you towards whatever goal want to achieve. Until we meet, have a great day!

Response time : My response time during the hours of 9 AM to 5 PM will be limited due to other obligations. Most evenings I am available from 5:30 PM EST to 9:00 PM EST as well as on the weekends where I have more flexibility. Also I prefer to use video platform since this gives us a chance to meet. I will connect by phone/email in between sessions as needed. Thank you in advance. Sean
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
