My Approach to Helping
My name is Jeffrey H. Carter, welcome to Walkin Talkin Therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Glenside, PA, a suburb on the north side of Philadelphia. I have spent the past 15 years providing comprehensive psychological care to individuals and couples. A common occurrence I see happening is this idea we're all familiar with....change happens. But what happens when the consequences of the change are so negative they severely impact our lives?
· Do you sometimes feel stuck, unsure what direction to proceed?
· Ever feel like you're second-guessing each decision you make?
· Are you tired of feeling alone in a crowded room?
Recognizing that every individual is different and challenged by their own set of specific concerns, my goal is to assist clients in finding new strategies for managing their current issues and to become the lifelong custodian of their own happiness and wellness.
If you feel the time has come to address your depressionanxiety, relationship discourse, addiction, anger issues, or perhaps grief and loss....just know you can overcome whatever challenge facing you.
More Info About My Practice
Individual - Life can be such a challenge, and there's not an owner’s manual or clear cut direction given on how to become the best version of ourselves that we can be. As we travel our path, we discover more about who we are, but the time might come when we find ourselves stuck, fearful or confused. Unfortunately, we're often unaware of the ways in which we've stopped growing and living vibrantly until anxiety, depression or some compulsive or addictive behavior affects our lives. Psychotherapy offers a pathway to change and engage our lives more fully.
Couples - Intimate relationships are filled with ups and downs, we know that. Yet after we decide to commit ourselves to someone else and love them wholeheartedly, we inevitably face conflicts and challenges. The object of our affection seemingly becomes the root of our problems; paradise becomes hell.
Walkin Talkin Therapy - The healing powers of nature have been a belief I have held on to throughout my life. As I began thinking about my own private practice, I knew the outdoors would somehow find its way into the work I do. WalkinTalkinTherapy was born of this vision. What I have found in working with clients over the years, while combining the simplicity of walking outdoors with talk therapy, the approach of being active during session helps patients relax and open up quicker.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as substance abuse or dependence (alcohol and drugs), depression, anxiety and fear, adjustment concerns, trauma and PTSD, relationship issues, grief and loss, sexuality concerns, spiritual conflict, and early childhood abuse.
Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn in session.
