I am a Licensed Psychologist in PA. I have worked in the mental health field since 1986 and have been in private practice since 1992. I have worked with many and varied individuals, couples, and families during these years. My early training was in Structural Family Therapy and I continue to seek to understand the role the family system plays, and has played, in each couple's current life challenges.
I strive always to meet the couple where they are in their current situation so that I can begin to understand their needs and goals in seeking treatment. As I learn more about a cpuple and their situation, we can then determine together what treatment modality would best fit their needs and proceed from there. When couples are not quite sure how to express these needs and concerns, the first goal is then to determine what is causing the current distress and what can be done to resolve it. Again, meeting the couple where they are in the moment and walking with them through the resolution of any underlying issues is the primary goal of all treatment.
Therapy can be very difficult at times and some sessions are more difficult than others. I can't guarantee that you will leave each session "feeling good" or even "feeling better" as there are often tough things to address. However, it is important to note that this is also a critical part of the therapy. Even in tougher therapeutic times, I will continue to provide support and encouragement to you.
So, welcome aboard Better Help and I hope I can make your life easier in some way.

I’ve only completed one session with Ms. Ventura thus far, but I would absolutely recommend her based on what I know. She was able to create such a rapport in the short time I spoke with her. I felt comfortable sharing my thoughts and understood in what I was saying. I have every intention of continuing with Georgette.
