I love couples work! To me, there is no greater fulfillment than helping two individuals reignite what was lost, and create new behaviors that have the ability to create a whole new relationship that both individuals may have lost hope for. Alternatively, couples counseling may also look like learning how to say goodbye, and doing so in the most productive and least painful way possible. The most painful option is to stay stagnant in an unhealthy relationship, having the same conflicts time and time again, and endlessly searching for an answer that isn’t appearing. You and your partner do not have to navigate these waters alone.

I work with individuals, couples, and families with attachment concerns and complex Trauma histories using EMDR, IFS, and Polyvagal Theory. I am sex-positive and welcoming to LGBTQIA+ clients. I feel confident working with individuals who, are or already have, deconstructed their faith/religion. When I meet with you, you can expect to have a conversation - one where you are heard, empathized with, and challenged. The therapeutic relationship is just that, a relationship. I will spend time getting to know you and helping you determine exactly what your goals are for this service before diving in.

Life rarely turns out how we think it will, so when a deeply distressing or disturbing experience occurs, we often struggle to find our next steps. Hope and purpose can become a distant reality. Sometimes, the traumatic event occurs to just one person, but often times, these experiences happen within the context of the family and everyone is impacted. Despite our best efforts to continue on our own, we may need the assistance of another person. At Mountain Valley Counseling, I use an integrated blend of evidence-based techniques as well as a warm, authentic approach to provide hope-filled healing and professional guidance.

You’ve been to therapy before, but it keeps feeling more like bandaids than breakthrough. And you’re worried the problem is you. Things start off okay, until the inevitable plateau hits and you keep leaving sessions feeling frustrated and empty. Something’s definitely missing, but you can’t put your finger on what. You just know it hasn’t led to the lasting change you crave. Motivated to do deep work and ready to get at the root, you’ve outgrown the one-size-fits-all approach. Annd it’s also a little scary going to those deeper layers.

One of my professional strengths is helping others build confidence, communication skills, and resiliency. I primarily work with youth, but serve all ages and backgrounds. By providing psychoeducation on the body and mind connection and it's responses to stress (eg: brain development, role of hormones, etc.) along with skill development, we can learn to regulate our emotions ,and how to communicate more effectively. Once we understand the Why behind our feelings and reactions we can begin to control the How in our reactions.

Female Therapists

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
