More about me
Years in Practice: 5
Hi! My name is Helen and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I've been in the field for 26 years, and in practice for 5 years. In that time, I've raised 4 kids, three of which are teenagers, and an adult son with high functioning Autism, who is soon to graduate from college. I've worked in various therapeutic settings such as employee assistance, providing on-going clinical services and case management for employees with work performance problems. I've also worked in preventive services, providing brief and extended therapy to children, adolescents, couples, and families, as well as working in a substance abuse outpatient setting, where I provided substance abuse counseling for adolescents and adults. I have a special interest in personality disorders and currently run two online support groups for survivors, as well as Cluster B individuals working on self-awareness and behavior modification.
I would describe my approach to therapy as warm, non-judgmental, and empathic. My role is that of a facilitator. Through our sessions my goal is to help you work on the areas of your life that you feel you are struggling with.
Outside of social work, I am very involved in fitness. I have been a CrossFitter for 8 years and I am also a weightlifter who follows flexible nutrition. I walk 6 miles a day and it's one of my favorite activities.
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 $60 to $90 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.
