I am a philosophical counselor who has been in private practice for over 23 years. I do not diagnose mental illnesses, nor do I prescribe medication. What I can do is help you with a wide range of issues that we all deal with: relationships, jobs, moral dilemmas, personal identity, love, difficult choices, transitions, addictions, self-care, spiritual/metaphysical questions, questions surrounding the exigencies of everyday living. A conversation is a good way to help you develop your own voice, your own inner resolve and sense of self. The 2,500 history of philosophy can provide invaluable insights as you journey through life.

Just as physical therapy retrains and strengthens one’s body, mental health therapy retrains and strengthens one’s mind, emotions, and relationships. It has the potential to empower, enlighten, and encourage. Whether facing depression or a relational concern, or if you’re looking for balance and peace or need to deal with the effects of trauma or abuse, including spiritual/religious abuse, the first step is to know that you matter enough to take care of YOU. As a therapist, I come alongside. I walk with. I reframe. I do not judge or shame. You are enough. You are whole. You are worth it.

Most people arrive at their first therapy appointments uncertain of what to expect. From my point of view, our initial goals are simple, but vitally important — to form a trusting, collaborative relationship, and to use that stable base as a means by which we explore. From there, fear of judgment diminishes and understanding blossoms! The clearer we see, the more you feel understood, the more real insight and real change become possible. We are on our way to a transformative experience! Healing is just around the corner.

We can all use counseling! Even when doing our best, we can end up so stressed we can’t sleep, yelling at our kids or partner, trapped in unfulfilling relationships and jobs, stuck in grief, with habits we hate, and wounds from the past that just won’t heal. Counseling helps. My mission is to deeply understand you, your experience, what’s going wrong, what’s going right, where you’d like to be, and possible paths to get there. Based on your needs, I am a listener, sounding board, safe space, cheerleader, coach, teacher, and more. We work together to address and move beyond whatever holds you back from the wellness you deserve.

Life is challenging. So many ebbs and flows. I recognize that and would love to help you on your journey. We can all use a little support from time to time. Relationships can be difficult to manage. Setting (and keeping) boundaries at home, at work, or within relationships is hard work. If you or your child are looking for support with issues such as anxiety, depression, bullying, domestic violence, abuse or trauma, I'd love to help. I use creative therapy techniques in-person and via tele-health to support you or your child.

What type of Dent County 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.

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.
