Life is hard, and none of us escape unscathed. We are all bruised and broken in some way. If we are fortunate, we have friends and family who walk beside us through the difficult times. Even so, we sometimes feel alone and at a loss as to how to move forward. We need further support from a trained professional who will walk beside us; offering support, empathy, insight, and encouragement. This is therapy. Counseling is one the great passions of my life. I have been counseling for almost 20 years and have wide and varied experience. I counsel all ages and use a variety of treatment methods tailored to each individual I see.

Psychological Assessment for ADHD (adult), memory, ID, neurocognitive, personality, dementia , adaptive functioning.
“We do not grow by knowing all of the answers, but rather by living with the questions.” - Max De Pree. “Be curious, not judgmental.” -Ted Lasso These two quotes sum up my approach to therapy, and hopefully, to life. Our brains are naturally wired to make sense of things, to organize information into understandable experiences and thoughts. This relentless pursuit of understanding can lead to new discoveries, new technologies, new medicines. However, it can also lead to stress, burnout, anxiety, and depression. Balance between curiosity and living with the questions is necessary to a life of integrity.

I have a particular interest in caregiver stress and dementia based on both my professional and life experience.
I have enjoyed helping individuals and couples struggling with emotional and relationship issues for over 30 years. My first goal is to help you feel safe to share all thoughts and feelings. We will work together to identify where you are feeling stuck; better understand your issues; experience healing from past hurts; learn new ways to manage stress; identify solutions, and take action toward your goals. I am an interactive therapist in that I believe in the importance of non-judgmental listening and emotional support while also providing feedback, guidance, and education.

Aging can bring a host of new issues such as feelings of isolation after retirement, grief and loss due to deaths of friends and loved ones, and finding new meaning in life after old roles have disappeared. New roles such as being a caregiver for your parents, spouse, partner, adult child, or grandchild can also add stress at this time. Mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, addiction, and schizophrenia can continue and sometimes new mental health issues can arise. Health concerns and family dynamics can also make life challenging. Learning how to cope with these challenges and enjoy life is paramount.

During my 13-years as a pastor in rural, southwest Iowa, many people in my parish took me into their confidence and educated me on how their lives were impacted by brokenness in their families, trauma, substance abuse, and the stress of everyday life. Not having the tools to help in the ways needed, I returned to graduate school in Community Counseling.

Alzheimer's Therapists
A progressive neurodegenerative disease, Alzheimers Disease slowly destroys an individual's memory, judgment, cognition and eventually ability to function. It represents an enormous burden on victims of the disease and their family alike.

Alzheimer's is characterized by memory loss, language deterioration, impaired ability to mentally manipulate visual information, poor judgment, confusion, restlessness, and mood swings.

Alzheimer's usually begins after age 65, but its onset may occur as early as age 40, appearing first as memory decline and, over several years, destroying cognition, personality, and ability to function. Confusion and restlessness may also occur. The early symptoms of AD, which include forgetfulness and loss of concentration, can be missed easily because they resemble signs of natural aging.

If you're looking for help for a friend or mother or father with alzheimer's in Ames or for an Ames alzheimer's therapist, these professionals provide alzheimer's help, alzheimer's therapy, alzheimer's counseling and alzheimer's treatment. They include alzheimer's therapists, alzheimer's psychologists and alzheimer's counselors. Therapists can help with testing for alzheimer's or diagnosis of alzheimers in Ames. They work with alzheimer behaviors in Ames and follow alzheimer's research.
