Hi,I'm Adam Pearson and offer consulting to clients who suffer from PTSD, Anxiety, OCD, Panic Attacks, Depression, couples/relationships groups. I am offering support groups online and in the Southern Illinois area. Our sessions, individual or group, will be therapeutic and supportive. Groups are much less expensive than individual therapy. Some goals we will work on are retraining the brain to think healthy, learning to manage your emotions, and learning to like and love yourself again. I use various techniques to help process trauma, manage your emotions and thoughts, helping grieve past losses so they don't infect your future.

****Not accepting new clients. After undergrad I moved to North Carolina where I received my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage and Family Counseling. I was licensed in NC for two years prior to making the decision to move back to Iowa. I work with all ages, but primarily focus on ages 10 years or older, and I am comfortable with working with most diagnoses. I am a CBT therapist that will also at times use a Solution-Focused and DBT approach. I remind clients who are searching for a therapist, “Therapist are like shoes. We do not fit you all. You need to make sure you find your right fit”.

I meet clients where they are and adjust each therapeutic intervention to the individual.

We all make our own way through life's journey and encounter hardships, and while these circumstances are temporary their impact influences us for a lifetime. If anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment/change or other struggles are interfering with your life, therapy may help you become more self-aware, to learn to love and accept yourself, enhance relationships, and improve your overall quality and functioning in life. I have a passion for helping people navigate life's struggles and assist them toward realizing their goals; I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to assist others on their journey of self-reflection.

I believe therapy is a way to develop a secure connection that can be rare in everyday life. Developing this connection allows one a space to express authentically what may have been hidden or not heard. Within the safety of this space, real change can begin to occur. So often we believe that it is by applying willpower to an issue that we can instigate change, and are left feeling defeated in the end. In therapy, we get the chance to take these moments of defeat and transform them. We can reorganize, reorient, gain hope, and live more satisfying lives.

Your life is amazing in so many areas, yet you can’t seem to get your anxiety to step aside and let you live your life to the fullest. You worry, your mind races with directionless thoughts, you’re distracted, and you’re too often irritable. Those awkward moments replay in your head and endless fears play and replay in your head. Then this presents challenges for you and your relationships. Maybe the anxiety is even coming from your relationships. Either way, let me help you come up for air. I know there is a lot on your plate, and these constant struggles with your thoughts, feelings, and moods are the last thing you need.

When facing life's difficulties, many of us can feel overwhelmed and alone. Therapy is where you are invited to safely connect and build a trusting relationship with someone who will accept you. I see therapy as a space to explore, learn, and heal in order to live a more secure and connected life. I have experience working with diverse populations and most commonly work with adults on issues related to life transitions, depression and mood, anxiety disorders, suicidal ideation, eating disorders and body image, and relational issues.

During my years in practice, I have noticed that many people feel like they are living their lives the way others would like them to live. This can create or contribute to depression, anxiety, and a general feeling of disconnection from oneself. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, childhood or recent trauma, or sexuality issues, my work is dedicated to helping you find your most authentic voice so that you can create the life that you've always wanted to live.

My clients are Gen Xers and older Millennials who are dissatisfied with the rhythm of their lives but may not know what to change or how to go about changing. They are high achieving but think they aren’t “good enough.” They feel worn out and stressed. My clients put others' needs ahead of their own, which often means they don’t have energy left to care for themselves. Many feel unfulfilled at work and are wondering about career changes. My clients long for an internal sense of grounded confidence and want to live intentionally. I'm a queer psychologist, and many of my clients are also part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Welcome, I know the first steps in asking for help can be challenging and I am glad you are exploring the possibility of counseling and how it can enhance your life. Most people exprience difficulty or obstacles at some point in life, the good news that difficulty doesn't have to be permanent. I strive to create an environment where people can express themselves, learn more about themselves, challenge themselves, and overcome life's obstacles. No obstacle is too small or too big for us to tackle together.

My approach in therapy is about establishing connection with my clients and validating their experiences. I enjoy creating a space where people feel respected, safe, and able to share anything that may be on their minds. The effect of having one’s feelings and thoughts acknowledged and understood is a significant component in working toward progress and relief of symptoms they struggle to manage. I also believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I work together with clients and families to identify goals that enable them to feel empowered to make healthier decisions.

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.
