First of all, I was absolutely appalled by the negative comment about Helen. In my 10+ years of being Helen’s client, following her to every location she worked in those years, I have NEVER seen an unhappy client. She always manages to create a beautifully styled hair out of anything, sometimes “anything” is close to “nothing” and it looks totally great when she is done. I just don’t think she is physically able to create an “ugly” cut. She’s done all kinds of services for me and my family: short cuts, long cuts, perm, braided do’s, up do’s, coloring of various types (regular, 3d, ombre), Keratin treatments, my hair and makeup for my wedding, facials. So I have plenty of positive experience with her and decided to speak up.Here is my story (or 10+ years history) with Helen. When I just moved to Baltimore with my hair all chopped up and wedding looming in just four months, Helen was my personal savior – she managed to create a gorgeous up-do for my wedding. People thought I had long hair, beautifully laid out in locks on top, while really my hair length was hardly reaching my shoulders – and I refused to use extensions! Helen managed my hair ever since then, creating fresh and cute short cuts when I wanted to keep my hair really short; helping me painlessly and conveniently growing my hair almost down to my waist when I decided to grow it, so I personally know what she can do with hair of any length. Also, she handles different types of hair: my hair is wavy, and my daughter’s hair is long and curly – Helen manages is beautifully, too. She also has knowledge about different products to help our hair stay healthy even in summer, with all the sun, pool and ocean trying to take toll of us. I saw drastic difference in my hair and in my daughter’s hair after such treatment with Keratin. Overall, she is a great professional, and if you have any “wants” or “needs” about your hair, just let her know and she will help you figure it out and will create a style that best fits you and your requests. Personally, I intend to be Helen's client no matter her location, for as long as she is practicing in this field.

I have been going to Helen for over 13 years now. I have followed her to every salon she has worked at since she was in Catonsville. I even moved a few years ago and drive from Pennsylvania now just to go to Helen for my hair care needs. My mother and best friend also go to her.She is a genius with color. I change my hair color about two to three times a year and it always comes out perfect. I have had long hair, mid length hair and really short hair. No matter what the length; she always gives me a great cut. The one time I strayed, she was able to fix the damage done by the other stylist. I can be a difficult and demanding client because of how much I change my hair but Helen is always friendly, courteous and professional.I have never had a complaint about Helen and I know that she has many clients that have followed her for years and are incredibly pleased with her work.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
