If you feel that you need to work on any area of your life including but not limited to trauma, relationships, parenting, handling conflict, anxiety, depression , grief, behaviors, crisis, and the list goes on to please contact me about how we can work together to achieve your goals.
I believe that all individuals will encounter a time in their lives when they will be facing some form of hardship, conflict, or distress. The ability for someone to recognize that they cannot go it alone and need a partner to assist them in navigating life situations is where I come into play. I believe that individuals can make the changes necessary in their lives with the proper supports and skills provided through counseling. Individuals who are ready to put in the work needed to navigate this life are the ones who will succeed.

As the sixth generation of my family to live in Howell County, I understand how foreign the concept of counseling may be to some people. Yet, as an Ozarker, I also understand the wit, humor, passion and intelligence of the people of this area, and I combine these traits with formal training and natural curiosity about people to create space for my clients to go through the healing process. Native Ozarker or not, it is my belief that everyone, at some point in their lives, will experience trauma, loss, or mental illness that is treatable through therapy.

Providing a safe space, being entrusted with vulnerability, and bearing witness to healing is an awe inspiring and mutually rewarding experience. Therefore, a good relationship is the first priority in therapy. Christine realizes that successful treatment begins with a strong therapeutic rapport. This focus allows clients to feel safe and understood, which is a strong catalyst for progress towards healing and achieving goals. Positive results can only occur once a therapeutic alliance is developed.

Deadlines, demands, sickness. It feels like you can’t keep up. Everyone wants a piece of you and there is not enough to go around. You are exhausted and your mind won't shut off. The What if's overwhelm you... "What if I am not good enough? What if I let everyone down?" Your family, your job, your friends are counting on you. You may wonder, "When is it about what I need?" only to feel selfish and guilty about that too.

I hope to work with clients that are motivated to develop trust with their body and connection to their story. Developing this trust within the self aids in developing effective resources to cope with the stressors of life. Anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, difficulty maintaining relationships, and utilizing maladaptive coping skills are some of. the ways past traumas manifest in daily life. I enjoy helping clients develop a nonjudgemental perspective to understand their traumas and how these experiences impact them presently. I enjoy working with clients to strengthen their self-compassion and increase their adaptive skills.

Hi, my name is Jen. If you are like the rest of us, I imagine life has been a little chaotic and more uncertain lately. Feeling unsettled and uncertain about the future can create challenges in all areas of our lives. It is completely normal to feel unsettled, but you can learn and practice tools that will help you regain a sense of peace in your life. The two most common questions I get in sessions are: 1) Am I crazy; and 2) Can you really help me? First, you are NOT crazy. Struggles with anxiety and depression are much more common than you think! Second, I can help you, as I have helped many others. Don't hesitate to reach out!

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in West Plains. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
