Telehealth Tips If you're used to seeing your mental health professional in their office, it may take some time to adjust to this new process. Take heart that our patients typically find video conferencing beneficial. Make a list of the main symptoms you want to address in the conversation. Also be sure to indicate when your symptoms started, what tends to exacerbate them, and what, if anything, seems to soothe them. Write down questions. Remember that mental health appointments are a two-way street. This is your chance to ask questions you have about your symptoms, brain scan, diagnosis, and treatment. Having a list of questions ready can help you remember to ask them. Have your medical and psychiatric history handy. Your therapist may ask questions about past medical or psychological issues in addition to inquiring about names and dosages of medications you have taken. Having this information available can save precious minutes during your appointment so you can spend more time talking about how you are going to get healthy. Minimize distractions and choose a quiet, comfortable spot One of the best strategies to ensure a meaningful appointment is to eliminate distractions. Close your door, turn off the notifications on your phone, and make sure someone is watching the kids so you can focus. Being able to hear clearly is another important element of an effective mental Tele-Health Zoom appointment. Try to minimize any background noise, such as the TV, the washing machine, or a barking dog. In addition, it's important that you feel comfortable in your setting during your appointment. Find a spot where you are relaxed and at ease. Troubleshoot technology beforehand. Find out what technology will be used and make sure you know how to use it prior to your appointment. Are you signed up for Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing app? Do you know how it works? If you have never used the app before, do a practice call with a friend beforehand so you can work out the kinks. Set a reminder to keep appointment. Most of us can benefit from helpful reminders and alerts from our digital calendars. Setting your calendar to send you an alert 5-10 minutes prior to your virtual session can give you the time to gather your lists and questions and to prepare yourself mentally. Reminders can be especially critical if you have a tendency to be forgetful or inattentive. Unblock your phone. If you're doing a phone call, make sure your phone isn't set to block unknown callers and answer your phone at the designated time even if it shows that it's from an unknown caller. DURING YOUR APPOINTMENT Take notes and/or ask for a recap.

Let's face it Christian women experience multiple situations that they do not have the tools to overcome. I help Christian women to gain the skills necessary to manage and balance life as a result of anxiety, depression, relationships, work stress, early childhood experiences, grief and loss, elder abuse, church abuse, parenting and post-partum depression. My mission is to help Christian women to understand what is happening to them. That is, I seek to help clients to gain awareness on what is causing them to stay tied to their past experiences and how these experiences are impacting their growth in their families, for their friends, in their careers and life mission. I help women to establish inner and outer boundaries and how these are crucial for growth and well-being (physically, psychologically and spiritually). Additionally, I provide counseling services to English speaking immigrants and refugees (e.g. Caribbean/West Indies) to explore their acculturative experiences in America and to learn strategies to cope. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am an Associate Professor of Counselor Education at the university (both masters and doctoral levels), where I have been training clinical mental health counselors and school counselors for the past 13 years. I also have experiences working in a university counseling center, working in church counseling ministry, and school counseling (k-12). I use my lived experiences and spirituality to empower Christian women and to help them live and grow into their full God-given potential. I want to connect with you because you have the capacity to expand and outreach into your community and make a difference in this world.

I have worked with a diverse population since 2012. My journey in the clinical world started as a brief Strategic Family Therapist 11 years ago. I have been working for an urban school district for the past decade. I however always felt a void and wanted to find a way to dedicate time to both education and clinical work. An opportunity presented itself and for the past three years, I have been providing individual counseling services while maintaining my career in the public school system.

I became clinician to help others heal from trauma and life circumstances. I can guide you on a path of self-discovery and self-love that can empower you through many situations. Therapy is a place for you to practice being yourself and expressing your needs, so you are comfortable advocating for your needs and communicating your desires. Life is what you make it and I can help you to start walking into the person you desire to become. I have over 14 years in the mental health field and have experience working with individuals' families and couples with diverse needs. I have help people to regain a sense of self-worth and unlearn negative beliefs about themselves.

Hi there, I am Kerri! Do you struggle with stress management, self-esteem issues and finding a balance in your life? I help people explore their strengths and strategies for improving how they feel about themselves. Together we can explore what is not working in your life for you and develop some ways to create a better balance in your life. In our sessions, I will meet you where you are and focus on what is important to you to work on. I use cognitive behavioral health techniques, and talk therapy, to help you explore and identify ways to feel better about yourself and develop the tools you may need to better deal with everyday stressors. It can be hard to reach out for help. Asking for help and support is the first step to feeling better. Let's work together!

Hello, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who believe that healing and growth are possible for everyone, regardless of their circumstances. My goal as a counselor is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Through active listening, empathy, and unconditional positive regard, I aim to foster a strong therapeutic relationship that promotes trust and openness. I integrate spiritual principles and practices into the therapeutic process in my faith-based counseling approach. Faith can provide comfort, guidance, and hope during difficult times. By incorporating clients' beliefs and values into therapy, I help them explore their spirituality as a source of strength and resilience. I also recognize the importance of addressing the mind-body connection in therapy. Our physical health and well-being are closely tied to our mental and emotional well-being. I encourage clients to engage in self-care practices, such as exercise, proper nutrition, and adequate sleep, to support their overall well-being. As an experienced counselor, I have worked with a diverse range of clients and have experience in addressing various mental health challenges. Whether it's anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, or relationship issues, I am committed to providing personalized support tailored to each individual's needs. Outside of my professional life, I find fulfillment in spending time with my family, attending church, going on vacations, listening to gospel music, cooking, and reading. These experiences bring me joy and inform and inspire my counseling approach. I look forward to working with you on your journey toward healing, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose. Together, we can navigate your challenges and empower you to live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
