Everyone seeks counseling for different reasons. Maybe you have recently experienced a major life event and are looking for an ally to assist you in processing your emotions or thought patterns. Maybe you're looking to shed behaviors that you no longer find useful or healthy, and you believe could use help with the process. Maybe you're seeking new skills that will help you better understand and manage a recent change or diagnosis. No matter your reason for seeking help, my hope is to provide a compassionate, judgment-free space of trust where you are able to do the work you need to take back control of your life.

Welcome, I’m glad you’re “here”—taking steps to make your mental health a priority. Perhaps you are familiar with the feeling that life is moving at a pace you can no longer manage? Perhaps you are adjusting to a life change or caregiver/parenting role that has served to create new, or worsen existing mental health concerns. Know that you are not alone.

Hello! I know sometimes the most difficult part of beginning the counseling process is finding a caring and compassionate counselor with whom you can connect. Look no further. Stressors such as financial worries, family, relationship, or work concerns, and chronic pain or illness are just a few struggles that may change behavior and mood. I strive to create a warm, helpful, non-judgmental environment in which you will feel safe, supported, and heard.

Realistically, what we're all looking for is a more satisfying life. That is, we all want a life that maximizes rewards and minimizes the negatives. Heaven on earth is probably not going to happen, by definition, but we can probably get closer to that ideal. What I offer is the best approach I have found for myself and those with whom I work. It's called Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). Basically, REBT holds that events do not upset us; rather; we upset ourselves by the view we take of things.

Life can feel out of control at times. In the rush of modern culture it can be difficult to slow down and pay attention to ourselves or make desired changes. A variety of stressors can impact our mood and behaviors, making it difficult to get back in line with our goals and values. The added support of a counselor can help us feel better and regain our sense of self. It can be challenging to reach out for counseling and find a counselor with whom you can establish a strong connection. I strive to create a collaborative, safe, and non-judgmental space to explore what you are going through and help you feel supported and understood.

Life is hard at times and can leave us feeling hurt, confused or even hopeless, but I do not believe that any situation is hopeless. As a therapist, and as a person, I believe in the healing process that can occur through having an unbiased person who is willing to sit and listen to our needs. My goal is to be that listening ear for you and help you learn how to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, identify how to draw on your strengths to make positive changes and understand that you have the power to overcome any issue.

"If you always do like you've always done You'll always get what you've always got..." That's just part of a quote attributed to many from Socrates to Einstein and many more. Where it originated from and who said it does not matter as much as understanding how it applies to you. Things happen in life, in and out of our control that shapes us emotionally, physically and spiritually. How we manage it, determines between a hopeful or hopeless life journey. Everybody has something. I offer support and encouragement in helping you manage your life's journey.

What type of Peoria 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 Peoria?
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?
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.
