Life is a journey we all take with no manual of what to do or how to navigate it. Many times we can get stuck or paralyzed by our feelings, thoughts or situations, without the ability to move forward. If you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed right now, just know things can get better.

Does your child struggle with accepting the word “no”? Do they act out in ways that causes you as a parent to feel overwhelmed and uncertain of how to help your child? Does your teen feel worried about little things that cause big problems? As a Trust-Based Relational Practitioner, I use play approaches to help children identify and express emotions. Through play a child can understand that emotions are not bad. They can also find ways to express their emotions in appropriate ways. This can help them become more confident in their interactions with the world around them.

In life things don’t always turn out the way we’d hoped. We didn’t get that degree we said we were going to get, marriage or relationships didn’t last, our loved ones passed away, and we just might feel stuck. How do we make sense of life again? How do we achieve our goals when they seem so out of reach? How do we create a happy life for ourselves.

First year social work students are always asked what their preferred population or job is when they graduate. Although most therapist do not know what they want to do for years, I knew right away that I wanted to work with children and their families. I am specifically passionate about children and families that have been affected by the foster care system. Research proves that what happens in childhood affects us all as adults. Although therapy does not magically make trauma go away, I want to help reduce the level of disturbance that trauma causes children so that they can be the best version of themselves as an adult.

Do you feel "STUCK" in everyday life? Feeling STUCK is one of the main reasons individuals seek counseling. Family and friends are often biased when we turn to them regarding how to handle situations in our lives. Counseling can provide an unbiased view point that can help you figure out what is best for you. As a counselor I use an Anthetic therapy to help individuals get past their "stuckness" and take back control of their lives. For couples counseling I use Gottman Therapy. Both techniques can have phenomenal results and that's why I use them. If you would like to schedule an appointment please call me at 318419-6990.

Being a caretaker comes with numerous demands that can be quite challenging. Managing responsibilities can be overwhelming and can lead to increased stress across all areas of your life. Providing care for others can lead to burnout, which in turn can cause you to experience feelings of depression and anxiety.. Many caregivers tend to overlook their own personal needs, leading to a worsening of their symptoms.

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
