Counseling is a process in which a counselor and client work together in a professional relationship to resolve concerns or issues that the client is experiencing and chooses to bring to sessions. It is my belief that the therapeutic relationship is purely client driven as you (the client) are the expert in your life. My theoretical orientation is diverse, I blend "Reality, Adlerian, Cognitive-Behavior, Gestalt and Client-Centered" therapy approaches to help clients maximize their self-awareness. I work closely with clients to assist them in increasing their positive thoughts/images in effort to promote efficiency in their overall thinking, coping and behavioral patterns.

*Kimatha is currently full & unable to accept new clients at this time * “Charity begins at home”, my mother would always say. “Outside, the world is hard enough, but at home you should have peace.” This has been my mantra for many years and continues to be a standard I commit to uphold. Generosity should begin at home, but home can look different for many of us. Home can be a person, place, or even a feeling. It can be with someone or somewhere you belong - where you are loved, respected, and cared for. Sometimes, though, our life experiences can make us feel without a home. Our home, perhaps, isn’t or wasn’t a safe place.

Life is full of obstacles that hold us back from our dream lives. School, work, relationships, family, health, finances, and sometimes our own thinking can absolutely overwhelm us.

I believe there is a resiliency that lies within each and every one of us. That strength is what gets us through each situation – even when we thought, “There’s no way I am going to make it through.” However, there are times when things can become overwhelming, and we need someone to listen, and encourage us as we navigate through the difficult situations life throws at us. No matter what brings you to therapy, know that it will be a space for healing, growth, and realization of the strengths that lie within you.

I'm Rhonda Bantsimba and I consider it an honor that I'm allowed to be present as people discover new levels of mental and emotional health and wellness. I firmly believe that, barring a few exceptions, people already have in them what they need. At the moment they are seeking help, something is creating a barrier to having the best life possible. I see my role as the person who holds a space for them to safely work through their distress, while giving support and challenging thoughts and behaviors that undermine their success.

What type of Canton 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 Canton?
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.
