We have been conditioned to think about our lives in certain ways. To love a certain way. Or even believing that you deserve what has happened to you. But what if that way of thinking is not true, toxic, unhealthy, or holds you back to fully becoming who you are destined to be? It’s not easy but if you are willing to invest in yourself, your mental wellbeing, or even spiritual growth, the transformation you’ll see will be well worth the healthier you.

If your tween (9-12) or teen (13-18) is having a hard time with… well life, I am here for them! I loves to work with tweens, teens, and families to help manage sticky situations like anxiety or depression, help with navigating relationships, managing stress, understanding big life changes, and much more. I believe that each person already has what they need to heal, but it sometimes our "okay-ness" gets stuck under layers of self-protection and hurt. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process that involves peeling back layers of protection so you and/or your teen can get back to your true authentic selves!

Therapy is not only finding ways of managing unwanted thoughts and feelings, but also catalyst for change. Therapy can be a change in direction and a launching off point. When clients came to therapy, they are given an opportunity to reflect on their lives, their goals, and learn more about who they are and who they want to become. As a therapist, I strive to help clients discover and accept themselves. This allows them to create a strong purpose in life while intrinsically motivating them to change whatever might be holding them back from their potential, whether it is a toxic environment, relationship, or state of mind.

Most of my clients bring individual and marital issues. They seek on-going inner peace, the lowering of distress factors, happiness in their relationships, and/or a vision and hope. Some seek to integrate both personal development and spiritual development. Most seek to find happiness, success, and personal satisfaction. Whether anxious, depressed, or seeking career satisfaction, my clients want to expand their inner peacefulness, resolve old conflicts, and move forward into a more successful life. When a person seeks to resolve conflict with self, life-partners, spouse, friends etc., I welcome them and invite them to journey with me in therapy.

If you are having struggles in your marriage or mental health, finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. Most couples go through their fair share of ups and downs throughout their relationship, and can often feel overwhelmed in how to start addressing underlying issues in their relationship (that go beyond communication). In therapy with me, I use effective evidence-based Gottman method interventions to address these very issues. I also am a mental health counselor for women struggling with mental health issues related to our gender. Such as PMS, infertility issues, and issues regarding sexism.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Ada are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Ada then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Ada, or Child Psychologists in Ada.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Ada psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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. Psychologists in Ada specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. 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?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
