*ACCEPTING CALIFORNIA, ILLINOIS, AND MISSOURI CLIENTS* Have you experienced trauma or wonder if you have? Curious how trauma may still be affecting you? Are you hesitant to seek out therapy out of fear of judgement about your cultural identity? Do you feel like you encounter more microaggressions than support when seeking healing? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then you may be in the right place. Trauma is more than PTSD. Numbness, difficulty making decisions, perfectionism, dissociation, low self-worth, addiction, insomnia, panic, anger, codependency, self-sabotage, and isolating can all be symptoms of trauma.

The single most consistent predictor of success in therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. I prioritize creating a trusting relationship. My approach is collaborative, relational, and interactive. I balance listening deeply with gently challenging clients to make meaningful change. I am not a therapist who sits back silently. I also do not presume that any given technique or my own experience hold all the answers in our journey together. Rather, I draw on evidence-based, relational practices, more than a decade of clinical practice, and your lived experience, cultural and personal practices, beliefs, and values.

It may seem like we are alone in our journey. We are all waging a personal invisible fight that we share with few people. Individual therapy is a way to help you make sense of your experience, and gain emotional support to push through difficult times. Beginning therapy is an opportunity to start offering yourself more compassion and grace. I’ve spent eight years supporting adults and families in crisis. I work with adults and adolescents struggling with transitions, grief, anxiety, depression, panic, phobias and addiction.

I offer innovative solutions for complex challenges. I focus on the kind of mental health challenges that may threaten your hopes and dreams. Maybe people are using labels that seem chronic and don’t accurately reflect either what you are experiencing or what you’ve been through! Maybe you’ve had experience with institutionalized care and you don’t want to go back! Or maybe you are a family member and don't know how to help. When there is no simple answer for anxiety, depression, emotional pain, social exclusion, abuse or addictive behavior, perhaps it is time to go a little deeper.

I work with individuals, couples, and families to guide them to achieve more satisfying, meaningful relationships and social adjustment. I believe therapy is a collaborative, creative process to unveil hidden strengths and courage to motivate change and create new experiences in your life. Creating a therapeutic relationship that feels safe and trusting enough to take personal and emotional risks is important. Through an eclectic approach best suited for my client, I have had success treating a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, past trauma, and grief/loss.

Sometimes being human is just plain hard. I work collaboratively with you to assist in utilizing your strengths to get through those rough patches. You are unique in your experiences, and I draw upon multiple evidence-based therapy techniques to explore and create an individualized plan that is solution-focused and works for you. I create a safe space that fosters personal growth and allows you to feel heard and understood. We are all human, and sometimes we just need a little extra help to make it through.

I am here to be present with you as you explore and process how the vast injustices in the world may be affecting your internal states. Together we can examine the question: Is there something “wrong” with me as an individual, or do we live in an inequitable society that causes emotional and often generational trauma? Our trauma can lead to behaviors that do not ultimately serve us or align with our core values—but there is room to heal. Your ancestral roots, intersecting identities, and cultural practices are an honor for me to make space for in our work together.

My ultimate goal as a psychologist is to provide a safe and empathic environment for individuals to address their presenting concerns. I believe that developing a strong therapeutic relationship and working with clients to achieve their goals will lead to growth, healing, and a better understanding of one’s self. I believe all this is possible in a supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic environment. I have a passion for working with culturally diverse populations. It is one of my goals to empower clients to create a meaningful life despite the pain that inevitably occurs.

My passion is helping anyone toward getting ‘unstuck’ and reconnecting with their lives and loved ones. I provide therapy for children, teens and adults navigating anxiety, OCD, selective mutism, mood disorders, post-traumatic stress, and peer issues, as well as ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses. I especially love working with teens and their families as they adapt to change; whether it’s better understanding and celebrating a teen’s gender identity, knowing how to discuss family separation, or finding healthy ways to cope with an unexpected loss.

Clients who typically feel drawn to work with me tend to prefer a more action-oriented and present-focused approach to therapy. While developing self-understanding in therapy can be very powerful by itself, I like to try to empower my clients to use their insight to create concrete change in their lives. I also like working with clients who are interested in setting goals, willing to experiment with new behaviors and thinking patterns, and motivated to do homework between sessions. My specialty areas include anxiety, perfectionism, impostor syndrome, low self-esteem, disordered eating, stress, and work-life balance.

As your therapist, my desire is to learn about your story. I commit to work alongside you to lessen burdens you are carrying while equipping you with additional skills to live a more fulfilled life. The things you are going through, or have gone through, impact how you see yourself, the world, and how you approach life. Sometimes those things hold us back from how we want to live.

Confidence and connection are the key ingredients for a meaningful life, but they can be compromised in times of stress or transition. The foundations of the past, once familiar and secure, are shaken. Anxieties encroach. Connections are lost. Yet, I believe that despite the pain and difficulty of these phases, there is immense potential for positive change and personal growth. Helping you discover that potential is what I love most about my work, so I encourage you to reach out to me to get started today. You can email me at vanpeltcounseling@gmail.com or text me at 510-859-4448 to set up a free consultation. I will respond ASAP.
