***CURRENTLY OPERATING A WAIT LIST FOR NEW PATIENTS****. My style of counseling blends deep emotional work with tangible, behavioral change. I have over 16 years and 15,000 hours of experience helping people of diverse backgrounds to navigate through dark times in their lives. I have REAL hope that people can overcome depression, calm anxiety, be transformed through grief, and find their peaceful center in the midst of over-stimulation and busyness. I love helping angry, estranged couples find connection and re-create intimacy. I enjoy helping people find psychological relief in the presence of physical pain.
Let's face it...life can feel complicated, stressful, and downright hard. An important thing we can remember is that we weren't meant to go through it alone. Sometimes we need someone who can hear us and validate us and help us see things that we might have missed. That is where I come in. One of my passions is hearing the stories and struggles of hurting people and helping them to come to a place of acceptance, healing, and adaptive coping. I work with clients of all ages, races, gender identities, and sexual orientations and I'd love the opportunity to talk with you about your needs, struggles, and goals! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Finding a therapist can feel like a daunting process. How do I choose? I read through this short blurb and I'm supposed to know that I will connect and feel comfortable to bear my heart to this stranger. I understand, sharing the heartaches we bear is not easy, I know how difficult it can be to ask for help. It can all feel overwhelming. Our thoughts and emotions can sometimes take over, we often create barriers for ourselves that we don't intend. If it's prompted by anxiety, depression, past traumas, know that we can work through it and find ways to decrease the distress you're experiencing.
Marriage & Family Therapist Associate, MA, MS, SMFT
My passion is working with couples, families, and parents and teens to improve their relationships in strengths based therapy. I also enjoy working with individuals to improve not only their mental health but also their relationships with others. My work is trauma informed and I utilize evidence based resiliency practices. It is important to me that we honor your belief system in our sessions. Whatever the need, my goal is to make this experience a collaborative effort with you.
My personal journey in counseling has taught me that a listening ear is helpful but not .enough to move you forward. I offer my clients a space to not only be heard without judgement but also a place to receive wisdom based on experience and education. I bring a balanced approach of compassion and challenge to the clinical setting with the hope of helping you discover your best life. I believe in the power of healthy relationships and communities. I care about the lonely and overwhelmed. I focus on strengths and intentionality, I am here to comfort, motivate, and problem-solve. Please allow me to join you on your journey.
As a social worker, my goal is to partner with my clients so that they may achieve their goals. I have a diverse background in treating trauma, addiction and mental health from a strengths-based perspective, and I have been successful in helping clients to integrate long-term solutions in their daily lives. I feel that my ability to create a strong therapeutic alliance with clients as one of my biggest strengths. For those suffering from PTSD/other past trauma, I offer EMDR therapy which continues to be researched as highly effective for individuals suffering from these conditions.
When we're feeling hopeless and overwhelmed by the stresses of our lives, it can be really hard to take the first step- to do one more thing. It's a lot easier to cope when you're not alone. I work to develop collaborative relationships with my clients to alleviate symptoms and resolve underlying traumas as quickly as possible- with or with out homework- your choice.
If you are exploring the option of therapy, you may have already made attempts to improve your situation on your own. You may feel depressed, anxious or lack assertiveness. Though you desire to make a change, you may be skeptical about the idea of counseling. You may also feel that finding a therapist who listens without judgment and who balances honest feedback with empathy, is a confusing and difficult task. If this describes your situation, I hope that I might have the opportunity to speak with you about a practical strategy to bring about the change you desire.
I have been in private practice, in California for 35 years. The focus of my practice is psychotherapy with adults and adolescents and I also provide couples counseling. My patients come from personal referrals, other professionals, previous patients and internet advertising such as this listing. Through continuing education and consultation with colleagues I maintain a high quailty in the services I provide.
My passion lies in working with adults, adolescents, and families. My experience has been working on a variety of issues including trauma, mood d/o, anxiety, self-exploration and understanding how our thinking affects our feelings and behavior. I enjoy assisting patients with identifying messages taken from life experiences that drive our choices and behavior in order to give each individual a better understanding of self. It is this understanding that brings awareness of habituated behavior patterns, effective communication skills and balance in our daily lives. Skills that are useful to patients outside of the therapeutic setting.
Currently accepting new clients! Immediate availability. I utilize a warm, person-centered, empathetic, and motivational style of communication which assists my clients in feeling heard, understood, and supported in their endeavors. I specialize in selecting the most effective approach for each individual’s needs throughout the therapeutic process. As a practitioner I am particularly skilled in assisting clients with confronting irrational thinking, coping skills, developing effective communication skills, self-esteem, and identifying goals to live their best lives.
I provide a specialty therapy for people with a high degree of self-control (perfectionists, introverts, worriers, and the notably stubborn). Can you have too much of a good thing? It turns out possessing too much self-control impairs our ability to relax, adapt to change, and connect to others. Humans have a fundamental need for fun and belonging, without it, we’re naturally depressed and anxious.
I provide a therapy called ERP (exposure and response prevention) for people with OCD. If you’re reading this, you probably know that OCD can take on a life of its own. My clients are trying their best to keep themselves and their loved ones safe, yet OCD can become incredibly time consuming and take attention away from the very activities and people that matter most. With treatment, my clients are increasingly able to feel a sense of safety in their lives and join others instead of needing to control the moment.
My clients are often experiencing anxiety, stress or significant life transitions and are ready to make a change and commit to therapy. Externally, my clients typically appear hard working, ambitious, high-achieving and organized. They seemingly have it all together. However, internally they’re caught up in a vicious cycle of worry, rumination, intrusive thoughts and may be scouring the internet for answers regarding their mental and physical symptoms. These symptoms may include difficulty sleeping, uncontrollable worry, irritability, fear of failure, self-doubt and an inability to remain present due to wandering thoughts.
I believe connecting humans back to the Earth is a source of healing. Because of this, I am exploring how to use adventure-based therapy in my work with my clients. Currently, I am able to offer therapy intensives outside, whether that’s sitting in a quiet park or hiking a local trail. Through Beyond Healing Center, I am also able to offer healing retreats using Equine Therapy on a beautiful farm. I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is of utmost importance. Finding a therapist that you connect with is a difficult task and therefore, I offer a free initial appointment.
Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC , CST, NCC, MA
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (KS and MO) and Certified Sex Therapist who believes in the importance of laughter and understanding in our lives and in treatment. I know that change can be scary and because of this I adhere to a teamwork approach which allows you and I to create a safe and supportive treatment environment uniquely suited for you and your individual needs. I have specialized training in the fields of sex and relationship therapy and specialize in working with issues related to female sexuality/ sexual empowerment, romantic relationships and gender identity in individuals age 18+.
I have had the pleasure of being a mental health therapist for more than 27 years. I specialize in working with individuals and adults, as well as those couples in marital conflict. I believe in a strong connection between early childhood development and issues that continue to create issues as we grown adults . In this society, we often struggle to find our emotional equilibrium and at times lose our sense of self. Adolescents also have difficulty during their normal development stages which is also of interest to me.
" I understand that finding the right therapist can be a daunting task. I believe that feeling seen, heard and understood is essential to successful therapy. I am committed to providing a healing, nurturing space that will enable you to move through emotional pain and into authentic connection with yourself and others".
