We at Thelma A Costello recognize the trying times the COVID-19 outbreak is causing on our clients, which is why our virtual doors are still open to you. For those who have been financially impacted by this pandemic, we have teamed up with BetterHelp to offer free or discounted help depending on your situation. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

As online therapy is a relatively new way to receive help, we understand your hesitation in connecting over the internet. We assure you that this service is a safe and protected way to communicate your situation to us. However, we also encourage you to conduct your own online therapy research if you feel the need.

Please be advised as of July 1 , 2021 my office will be open 2 days weekly for face to face sessions only.

Thelma A Costello LMHC Counseling & Therapy

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, we need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems.

Everyone has hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, or any other mental health issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.

You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you.

"Thelma has been an important part of my recovery and personal life. She has helped me tremendously and has put me at ease more times than I can count. I have gotten great advice and solving mechanisms with family and relationship issues. I always go into her office knowing I'm in a safe place. Her office itself is unlike any other therapists office I've been to. It's very inviting, comfy, and serene. I no doubt would recommend Thelma to other people. After seeing several other therapists and losing hope before, I can finally say I believe in therapy and it's benefits. She is always on top of calling and confirming appointments so I don't forget. Her scheduling and punctuality is always on point. She has even been available after hours for me in emergency times. Overall, 10/10 for Thelma she is a blessing!"
