Announcement icon We are still providing in-office if desired as well as telehealth options to continue meeting the mental health needs of our clients!
If you are someone who is struggling with depression, anxiety, hopelessness, guilt, grief or shame I can assist you. Through a compassionate and empathetic approach, together we can explore your symptoms and build skills to enhance your quality of life. I utilize techniques of: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, and Mindfulness. Many individuals feel a lack of support and seeking therapy can be intimidating and difficult. As your therapist, I will provide a consistent support you can advocate for your mental health. I also lead an anger management group that assists individuals in recognizing triggers.
We also offer Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) (an in home worker) whom works with children 5-18 on skill building (i.e., anger management, communication, relationships, coping, listening, boundaries, etc.). BHIS is a great addition to the therapy process for quicker improvements and family interaction! BHIS is an IA Medicaid service.
Not sure if you are ready to begin your therapeutic experience? Give us a call and receive more information about how therapy works as well as what to expect!
