About Therapist Rhonda Scarlata
I assist my clients in achieving their goals. Whether you are wanting to feel better about yourself, make your life work better for you or you are going through a tough situation-talking with a professional counselor can be very helpful. You want a therapist whom you trust. You want someone who is easy to talk to, who will listen and not judge you. If you want to make changes, I can show you strategies that will help you develop new habits and keep you motivated. If you have been upset or under stress, we can explore what is making you sad, mad or anxious and get you feeling better. Our work together is confidential and my office is a safe place where you will feel respected and understood.
If you are the parent of a college student or young adult, you want a therapist with whom your son or daughter will feel comfortable talking. At the same time you want to feel that the therapist you entrust with your child’s mental health is a professional who can provide you with guidance as to the best course of treatment. I have been successful in helping young adults achieve their goals in part because I involve their families.
I am experienced in the treatment of depression, anxiety, addiction and relationship issues. Other areas of particular specialty include eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder or BED, compulsive overeating, orthorexia), obesity, overweight, weight loss, weight management, chronic dieting, body image and recovery from Gastric Bypass and Gastric Banding procedures. In the treatment of addiction, specialties include alcoholism, drug addiction, food addiction and recovery. My primary method of treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT.
