You’re sitting here and a thought pops into your head saying “I am not enough” which leads you down a rabbit hole of negative thinking and now has you feeling anxious, irritable, and moody. You don’t know how to stop this train wreck of thinking and your thoughts have taken power over you. You’ve tried everything you can think of to silence your inner-critic: reading books, blogs, yoga, journaling, and even therapy. But none of it has worked, at least not for long. You’re ready for a change.

You experience challenges in life, but these issues don't define who you are. I believe everyone is on their own unique journey but sometimes the challenges become obstacles to achieving your full potential. The obstacles you face could be specific such as adjusting to chronic illness or disability, managing chronic pain, or unresolved trauma or they might be life transitions such as starting or returning to school, starting a new job, or returning to the work force.

There is a quote that says, “Life is a journey that is not to be feared and planned but to be traveled and enjoyed.” However, with many of us, no matter how much and succinctly we plan our life, things do not go as we plan which affects our happiness (depression) and trigger our fears (anxiety). Seeking help to manage the journey can make all the difference and can help with taking the focus off of the detours of the journey that causes the unhappiness while placing joy on the ability to see the lesson and beauty in the detours.

Life is too short to spend so much time letting trauma control us and not living our truest self. I believe therapy can help you work through emotional pain, find purpose, develop better relationships with yourself and others, and make important life changes.

What type of Bloomington 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Bloomington?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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?
