Is your teen often withdrawn, depressed, or angry? Failing at school, acting out at home, causing you sleepless nights? I know it's hard to see your child hurting when they refuse to tell you why. You fear the worst. Parenting was easier when they were small. Kids today are dealing with their feelings in ways that create more problems - self harm, drugs, bullying, sexual pressures are all too common. You're afraid, and I'm here help your child and family deal with the difficult emotions, and unhealthy choices spurred by peer influences or poor judgment. There is hope.

Wouldn't you agree that good healthy relationships are one of the greatest joys in life? When our relationships with those who are most important to us are going well, life seems at its best. But these relationships can become broken and cause us pain. Relationships take time, effort, careful handling and real love. The good news is relationships can heal, and there's help to get you there. As a marriage and family therapist, I most enjoy helping couples and families navigate life's challenges through learning new skills to get to the relationships they desire.

*NO CURRENT AVAILABILITY*. I am a virtual only practice. I have a degree in Marriage and Family therapy. The title of my field is misleading; I work with all sorts of individuals and I offer the opportunity for those clients to bring other people into sessions with them if/when it feels helpful. These people can be romantic partners, family members, or anyone else that is relevant to a client’s wellness. I’m trained to think about how people are impacted by their relationships (friends, family, romantic partners), the larger social context, and vice versa.

If you are a parent there are many experiences you may be having that you want to process in order to make decisions for your family in a way that is authentic to you. If you are an expecting parent you may be thinking about what this big transition means for your identity or what kind of parent you will be. If you are raising children who are disabled, you are making even more complex decisions to support them and to advocate for their needs. If your family is multiracial/multicultural you are probably having on going conversation about how to bring all these elements into your family today. You want support in your parenting path.

We will not try to make you do what somebody else wants you to do. We start with your goals & find ways to help you develop the necessary skills. We have found that, if a person's individual wishes are not represented in the solution, it will not work in the long run. So there is a strong emphasis on helping each person take responsibility and control over their own happiness. Some things are better handled individually, and some things are better handled with both people in the room. Our unique blend of individual & couples therapy is quite effective.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Kent 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 Kent 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 Kent, or Child Psychologists in Kent.

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