Counseling is a unique process where you can feel safe and be yourself, create goals and find ways to improve your quality of life. As your therapist, I provide a relaxed and comforting environment for you to share whatever you choose to share. My job is to listen, provide feedback and help you develop skills to create positive change in your life. I will be able to help you reduce stress and help you grow. I am creative and comforting in my treatment process and will remain objective and non-judgmental to allow to work together on the presenting problem. I specialize in relationships, couples therapy and individual counseling. I can help you improve your relationship with your spouse, partner, boss or family members. I also work with folks who have addiction issues including substance and gambling addictions. My main focus and priority when working with clients is to provide a safe and comforting space to allow clients to engage and be open in therapy, this will help to get to the root of the presenting problem.

Hello, I am Daphne Jakstis. I have been a licensed therapist for over 20 years. I keep up to date with the latest advances in evidence-based therapy practices and incorporate them into my work with clients. Evidence-based practices are skills and techniques that have been proven to be effective. I also believe that healing is a holistic approach so I combine evidence-based practices with complementary approaches to promote overall healing and wellness. I realize that no two people are the same, so I tailor my approaches to best fit the specific needs of my clients. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, or any other issue, I will help you fully realize your strengths and provide you with skills to help you manage challenges in healthier ways.

"When you make peace with yourself, you make peace with the world" As adults, we are responsible for changing things not because we are to blame for these things, but because we are the only ones who CAN change them. That can feel unfair, and it is. But it can also be empowering- you are the catalyst for personal change, you can always take a turn or step in a different direction, you can always act differently, feel differently, and (with the right tools and assistance) heal. I am here to help you with this noble work. As a mental health professional, I am passionate about helping others feel more whole, hopeful and effective by developing deeper self-knowledge, self-respect, compassion, resilience and coping skills.

Hi this is Carol. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in eight states including Pennsylvania, Virginia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Illinois. My career started in Pennsylvania where I attended Chestnut Hill College and received my Master's in Counseling Psychology, Marriage and Family Therapy Option. It continued in upstate Pennsylvania and New York where I attended SUNY University of Buffalo and received my Master of Social Work Degree. I capped those off with a Psy.D. from CalSouthern University, received Magnum Cum Laude in 2012 using an online doctoral format. I am also an Advanced Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor in the state of South Carolina. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to attend the University of South Carolina shortly after relocating there in 2016 where I received a certificate in Military Matters. If you are having flashbacks or memories of traumatic events that you cannot shake, we can disburse them using best evidence practices. If your anxiety has gotten out of control, we can combine forces to put you in control of the stressors and persistent thoughts that keep you from being your best and sleeping well at night. When depression makes you want to stay inside of your home or in bed each day, I have tools we can use to empower you and help you avoid guilt. For any problem that interferes with your life or life transitions, there is a tool in my toolbox that has the power to bring about change. If we need a tool from someone else's toolbox, I know how to either borrow that tool, gain that missing knowledge, or do a warm handoff to other resources and providers without missing a beat. I strongly believe in the unity of and interaction between the mind and body. The body keeps the score and emotional and physical assaults leave scars. I believe that a respectful level of humor enhances one's ability to grow and accept the dialectal events in life. Research tells us that a sense of humor helps people to learn and grow. Therapy is one of many ways in which we learn to navigate the roads and streams of life.

About You Are you in a situation where friends and family are not enough help right now? There are times when almost everyone needs to talk to an objective person. If this is your first time in counseling finding out a little about about your counselor is just one of the steps you have to take. Another is understanding what counseling/therapy is. It's a confidential meeting with an objective professional trained to sort things out and identify if you are at risk of harming yourself because life is too painful to bear. Suppose you are dealing with an unbearable situation such as being threatened of losing a job, a death in the family, a serious illness of your own, ongoing disability or addiction, a relationship going sour or breakup, loss of any kind, depression, and anxiety, I can help you get back on track. The truth is, I have lived a bit. I know what life is like. I was a New Yorker. I settled down in Massachusetts. Then I had a family later than most. Although I did work in human services with my bachelor's degree, I went back to school as an adult with a young child. I am so grateful to be this educated to help my clients. I ran an outpatient early recovery program, an inpatient program for long-term alcoholics, individual sessions at an outpatient community mental health clinic, and of course my private practice. This is who I am. I will be pleased to be your guide on your journey to a happier healthier life. ,

You are here hoping to find that therapist who stands out to you because you want to find someone who can help you. The search can be overwhelming for some. Most of the profiles of therapists are going to say similar things. Most of which should be standard like brakes on a car. I cannot promise I'm the right one for you. Here is what I can tell you about my approach. I believe in being practical which means I will not use a lot of psycho-babble or fancy strategies. I have a tendency to be blunt. My wife says I'm the "bluntest politest man" she has ever met. I'm going to be real with you. I love couples/marriage counseling, and that is my main focus. However, about half of my clients have always been individuals. Some people just need a place to vent. Others need help solving a problem, and most people need a little of both. I know therapy might be a little intimidating or even scary to some. Try to think of it as a massage for your brain. It's a place where you can say whatever you want guilt-free.
