About Damaris Vanderhall's service

What sets me apart from other counselors is my ability to meet the client where they areu2026Whether that is a client with a severe and persistent mental health disorder or a client that I only meet with for a few brief sessions to help them work through a tough period in their lives. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been working in the behavioral health field since 2005. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Cedar Crest College in 1998 and my Master’s In Social Work from Kutztown University in 2010. I have worked as a therapist on a multidisciplinary treatment team in inpatient facilities and outpatient clinic settings. I am certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy which has been proven effective in changing thought process and/or behavior to get more out of life. Simply stated – life isn’t black OR white and we often miss the importance of approaching things from a gray point of view. Thinking dialectically has changed how I communicate and handle stress and I embrace every opportunity to teach those skills to those who need them. Depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and communication issues, addiction (your own or a loved one’s) are just a few of the things I have focused on with clients throughout my career. I feel grateful every time I have an opportunity to work with someone who trusts me enough to be vulnerable and willing to allow me to help them reach their goals.
