Welcome! Do you feel stuck, lost, out of place, told to just deal with it? What if life with your partner could be as exciting as it was when you first got together? Has it ever felt like no one cared, that what you feel doesn't matter? It is so hard to think that we are important and that what we feel matters, especially if we feel alone, whether we are children, men, women, or the elderly. Communicating these feelings and other challenging moments can be so difficult for us as a couple, for our children or even for us as individuals, that we may yell, cry or use words that can hurt in an effort to protect ourselves.

There are times in everyone's life when events or experiences overwhelm our ability to cope, and we turn to those around us for help and support. Sometimes, though, seeking professional assistance is the best option. Psychotherapy can provide effective support during times of stress and struggle, helping you take care of yourself and start feeling better. I work with clients who are facing a range of personal, relational and emotional challenges. No two people are alike, and my practice is grounded in a respect for your individuality. My focus is on getting to know you, and supporting you to achieve your goals.

“How are you?” is a question many of us get asked several times a day, yet, the person asking is usually not interested in the honest answer to the question. I am. As a certified clinical trauma specialist, I am able to use a trauma-informed lens that highlights one’s strengths and resilience and allows for them to explore their experiences in a safe environment. Additionally, I use an informed approach when working with adults in areas regarding sex, sexual identity, sexual education, and general sexual therapy.

From a young age, I was always interested in the why of things. Whenever I was told that, "things could be worse", I was never satisfied and always remember thinking that there must be a better or different way of handling things. In my life, I have encountered many challenging times and tried to handle things the best I could. As a result, I decided to do my own work and in turn was inspired to help others. Today, I am fortunate enough to do the work I do and am passionate about helping others to make changes in their lives.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in L8H are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in L8H then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in L8H, or Child Psychologists in L8H.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like L8H psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in L8H specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
