I am a home based therapist. I believe all children deserve a loving family that knows how to best parent them. While I do not have an "ideal client" per se, I do believe no child should be taken off alone to develop an attachment to me, the therapist. Children should attach and bond to their parents so therapy with foster and adopted children is most effective within the family. When working with older youth in foster care, individual therapy may be warranted, but I would prefer to work with the family whenever that is a viable option.

Life is a journey, a journey that is most difficult when traveled alone. I strive to walk with clients on their path towards healing and happiness. Working from a client-centered approach, it is essential for me to understand each client as an individual to develop trust and a partnership in therapy. Relationships, trauma, careers and other stressors take a toll on a person's ability to flourish. I believe that each person has potential for growth from those experiences. My goal is to help you regain your footing on your path to living a full and vibrant life.

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" - Carl Rogers. Accepting difficult situations in life and moving towards change is a journey you don't have to face alone. I have 10+ years of experience working with adolescents and adults who struggle with overwhelming emotions, feeling disconnected from others, poor relationships, poor sense of identity, thoughts of suicide and self-harm. These symptoms and behaviors are often a result of feeling unheard, invalidated and/or traumatic experiences.

Life is beautiful even through all its struggles and disappointments. I believe the connections we make with others give us purpose and drive to fulfill our dreams. Though sometimes our intentions do not manifest and we become stagnant and distressed. In my therapy I like to focus on what we can control...ourselves. To take a look inward and view our most delicate fears, insecurities, and desires can be a lot of hard work. I approach each client with this recognition and strive to make a true connection to help foster self-improvement and life satisfaction.

Sometimes my clients wonder is my child depressed? Does my child have anxiety? Am I doing a good job as a parent? My passion is working with children and families, helping them to relate better with one another or to cope with normal family issues in healthier ways. I believe all clients possess the potential to improve their lives. My goal is to offer support and strategies so that clients can decide for themselves what is appropriate for them. In addition, I strive to help adult clients gain perspective and understanding of their lives so they are empowered to make meaningful changes for themselves. I no longer accept insurance.

My job is to help you work through life's challenges so that you can attain a greater sense of wellbeing and fulfillment. I start with listening carefully to how you construct the world and identify problems. It is important to first understand where you are before we work towards where you want to go. Sometimes, it's important for me understand where you've been too, but I certainly do not want to dwell in the past. Most people want to be more connected to the present, while also orienting themselves toward positive future aims. This is precisely what our work will be about.

Feeling overwhelmed is part of being human. We all struggle. Struggles are more common when you are coping with serious medical issues. You don't have to wait until an issue reaches a crisis point before you seek support in a safe, caring environment. My primary goal for my clients is to provide the caring support and compassionate challenge they need to cope with difficult situations. I believe that most people can benefit from having an objective perspective on issues facing them. You can learn more on my blog: http://www.drannbeckerschutte.com/blog

My aim is to help individuals and couples who are experiencing repetitive, entrenched patterns of problems or symptoms. These problems may appear in the realm of mood (emotions), behavior, or be physically lodged (psychosomatic). Disturbances such as these are often found to have their roots in templates formed earlier in life, but exert force upon present-day perceptions, emotions, cognitions, and interpersonal life. My role is to facilitate an in-depth understanding of the understructure of these mental and emotional constellations (usually out of awareness) which uphold and perpetuate the problems and patterns in need of modification or relief.

Stuck. Trapped. Controlling. Anxious. Over it. Apathetic. Do you find yourself resonating with these words? Maybe you feel yourself enraged at little things your partner or kids do, and then hating yourself after you snap. Perhaps you used to get excited about a weekend brunch, meeting a friend for a coffee, or strolling Target alone - but now you only feel apathetic and empty. What if you could find your spark again? Does that sound possible? Maybe going back to where you used to be isn’t even your goal: maybe your goal is the ability to be present, without nagging anxieties and crippling depression. Either way, therapy can help.
