If you're struggling, you owe it to yourself and those around you - your partner , children, colleagues, friends - to take a step toward change. If you're like many women, you are in a constant balancing act. Whether your struggle is managing the day-to-day stresses of life or a more specific concern, talking with someone who will really listen, getting support, and having help to consider your options can make a tremendous difference.

We all get wounded in the battles of life -- some of us in tragically dramatic ways, and others of us bleed through the piercings of a hundred small injuries. Let me help you get to the core of the struggles and back on the road to living your life again. Perhaps it is an addiction you can't seem to get rid of, or that haunting sense of inadequacy or loneliness. It may be anxiety or depression, gender identity issues, or past trauma. Maybe for you a relationship you value has have become difficult or painful.

Have you been suffering in silence or struggling with relationships? Know that hope is near. We all have experienced pain that if left untreated, can keep us trapped, inhibiting our ability to enjoy life and genuinely connect with others. There are three main areas that are near and dear to my heart: Children who’ve gone through adverse life experiences, women having difficulty navigating life stages, and victims or survivors of betrayal trauma: emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Know that it will take time to heal, courage to face the reality of your experience, and a steady commitment to your own healing.

I'm not the expert on your life, YOU are. With the perspective of an outside observer and insight born of experience, I seek to help you map out a path to pursue healing and wholeness. I believe that ignoring your heart is as dangerous as following your heart. I instead seek to help you understand what's happening in your heart, so you can explore your inner world and respond out of a place of self-awareness and growth.

I have experience working with at-risk children, adolescents, couples counseling , and family systems therapy.
Life becomes too difficult; you need an objective someone to talk to, listen to your story, and provide encouragement that you can not only survive what you are going through, but work to find purpose and meaning in the midst of the storm. The most important aspect of therapy is the Client-Therapist relationship. Once it is determined that the Client is comfortable with me, then it is a collaborative effort to help facilitate the healing process through the life changes the Client faces. My job is to provide a safe place for change and growth to happen.

Services include individual, couples and family sessions as well as parenting strategies and education.
Healthy boundaries, relationships and communication can be really hard. Feelings of doubt, anxiety and /or depression can influence our behaviors, emotions and mood. If these or other areas of concern are preventing you from reaching your full potential, counseling can be an empowering experience. We open our lives and our hearts to strangers in counseling. It’s natural to want to find a person whom you can relate to and trust before beginning this journey. I look forward to partnering with you during your time of discovery. As an EMDR practioner we can discuss if this integrated approach is right for you.

Hi,I'm Adam Pearson and I see clients who suffer from PTSD, Anxiety, OCD, Panic Attacks, Depression, couples /relationships, substance abuse. In Our sessions some goals we will work on are retraining the brain to think healthy, learning to manage emotions, and learning to like and love yourself, maybe for the first time. I use various techniques to help process trauma, manage your emotions and thoughts, helping grieve past losses so they don't infect your future. Perspective and perception usually are culprits in mental health. I am not a therapist who will tell you what you want but what you need to hear and encouraging you always.

What type of Carthage 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 Carthage?
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.
