Paulina Blecker, MS, LMHC provides counseling for adolescents (age 14 & up), adults, couples, and groups experiencing a wide range of struggles. I work from a holistic approach to address your health from an emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical perspective. Oftentimes a person seeks out counseling to address a specific issue but it can also assist you in discovering a new path in life, improving communication with those around you, or to gain a better understanding of yourself. Some of the specific issues I work with are listed below, with my areas of specialty marked with ***:
Addiction & Recovery
Anxiety and Stress***
Career & Vocational Issues
Trauma and PTSD***
Limits of Confidentiality
What you say in session, stays in session...for the most part. This section highlights those times when confidentiality between a therapist and client can be broken. The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
