Trying to find the counselor that best suites you can be frightening. It takes courage to try to seek help. Sometimes people come to counseling ready to bare their soul, and some people come to begin the journey towards being vulnerable. Levels of resistance and vulnerability vary, but they are both important to understand for each unique individual. There is hope in every situation. Everyone is on a different path in their journey, and I enjoy being chosen as a part of it. I work with a variety of clients with a variety of issues, needs, and goals.

I am an independent contractor working with Neuro Harmony, LLC. I most enjoy working with folks struggling with trauma, ADD, BPD, NDE's, and who consider themselves "quirky" or "misfits." Often they are simply seeking validation - reassurance that they are not actually "crazy" - and have the curiosity, sense of humor and resilience needed to undertake existential adventures. Like most of us, what they are basically seeking is contentment and peace of mind.

I am an independent contractor working with Neuro Harmony, LLC. My ideal client is someone who is ready to begin a journey of self-exploration and face life on life's terms. That being said, anyone who comes to me for counseling is someone I would like to work with. I like helping people reclaim their self-esteem and power in life, overcome anxiety and depression, develop coping skills to deal with life, heal from trauma and overcome old behavior patterns that are self-defeating and self-sabotaging.

As a Trauma Therapist I honor the differences between Counseling, Therapy, and Trauma Processing and am happy to provide whatever combination of these services you're needing. I work well with clients who are trying to break free from PTSD/ CPTSD/ DTD, people invested in breaking cycles of dysfunctional family patterns, and people who think outside the box. If you have experienced trauma, if you suffer from chronic pain/ invisible illness/ or iatrogenic injury, if you are highly sensitive, an empath, or an outcast, if you're searching for your higher self through spirituality, we may be a good fit.

Now accepting new clients! Are you overwhelmed, struggling to keep it all together, and constantly feel like you are failing? Are you tired of feeling anxious, stressed, and burnt-out? Do you know some strategies that could help, but struggle to implement them? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are in the right place. We all deserve a place to talk with someone who we know will not judge or shame us when we are struggling. If you are feeling overwhelmed, it’s okay to reach out for help, support, or guidance.

You’re struggling to keep afloat in the deep, seemingly unending pool of emotions. From the outside, things look good or at least “fine.” However, inside it is anything but fine. You feel alone, misunderstood, depressed, anxious, and struggle with these intense emotions. Sometimes the emotions quickly change and other times you feel like you are stuck . You want someone to understand and know that this pain is so real, so heavy. You want some relief from the mood swings, anxiety, loneliness, and ongoing confusion that you feel about yourself and your relationships.

My approach when working with individuals is to facilitate a learning environment. I help clients by actively listening and creating a space where they are able to open up and explore their own conclusions on how best to traverse their struggles. I want my clients to feel that they are being heard and feel that they have come to conclusions on their own rather than being told what to do.

The choice to reach out for help is often a difficult choice to make. But, when our life's journey presents us with challenges and obstacles, it can be difficult to face this journey alone. I have experience with, and enjoy being a genuine source of support for teens and young adults. My clients are individuals in need of clinical or emotional support, who need assistance with identifying and working through life's stressors. My clients are also individuals who may not need clinical support, but want to learn skills and strategies, which promote their well-being and assist in maximizing their personal and professional potential.

What type of Effingham County 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 Effingham County?
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.
