My family is multiracial, formed partially through adoption .
Life can be full of joy but can also be lonely and deeply painful. Your personal life may feel unbalanced or your relationships seem stuck. I think it is very courageous to seek health and healing from hurt, internal strife or relational trauma. Relationships cause tremendous pain but can also be the source of magnificent healing. Oftentimes a comfortable, inviting space where you can safely explore who you are at your core is just what you need to begin flourishing and thriving. That same space can be precisely the respite your relationships need.

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.

This is a time in which many are suffering from extreme anxiety having been given the order to 'Shelter in Place at Home.' As a mental health clinician I want to be available for those needing to use professional services and I am set up to take new clients for safe confidential online sessions or phone. It is especially difficult on those who have underlying emotional conditions that will become more symptomatic being in social isolation and having a sense of the unknown. I have been providing mental health therapy for thirty years and I am currently taking new clients including children and adolescents.

We are not meant to live life alone, but rather deeply involved in relationships. Some of these relationships are highly successful, while others have come with great loss, significant struggle or just the every day difficulty of learning to live and enjoy life with another person. I believe in the value of working through personal problems in the context of building stronger relationships. I will help you work through this on a personal level or with whomever you are needing to have a restored relationship with.

Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family, friends, society.

If you are here because you are going through a difficult time right now, please know you are not alone. Part of being human is the inevitability of encountering difficulty. Some of us accept this quite easily, but it is harder for us to accept ourselves while we face that difficulty. Sometimes the hardest thing we endure is lack of compassion for ourselves. Some of us, are experiencing difficulties for the first time (or first time at this extreme) and coping strategies that have worked in the past no longer serve us. All this individual difficulties are then multiplied by the troubles facing our world right now.

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
