I take into account the whole person (mind/body/spirit) and provide a very non-judgmental approach to therapy. Together we will focus on finding and resolving the factors that are at the root of your mental health symptoms. These symptoms are often natural responses/adaptations to stressful life circumstances and traumatic experiences. From this perspective, these psychological parts simply become imbalanced over time, and can get stuck in the past. Once they are properly integrated in the here-and-now, we can begin to live a life that is more easeful and true to our highest self.

Life gives us experiences that are unexpected, often perplexing and sometimes overwhelming. With over 30 years of practice, I've worked with wonderful people facing just about everything life has to offer. Through this, I've developed a way of working with clients that is empowering, and most of all, effective. Relief comes when we begin to understand the emotions motivating us. The ability to identify and soothe difficult emotions is central to alleviating depression, anxiety, the echoes of trauma, or relational issues.

My main approach is Cognitive-Behavioral, which means that we will focus on the role thoughts and behaviors play in psychological functioning and well-being. For couples counseling, I prefer the Gottman method, pioneered by John and Julie Gottman.

What type of Des Moines mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Des Moines?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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. 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?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
