Life is full of transitions. Changes in employment, relationship status, becoming a parent, the illness or death of a loved one, relocating or developing a new health issue are some of the most challenging life transitions. Without adequate emotional support and healthy coping skills, the extra stress can lead to developing further physical and mental health problems. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, substance abuse and family conflicts can appear or worsen as a result of not having support and knowledge of how to manage life changes. I educate and support my clients as they learn to think and care for themselves in a healthier way.

Depression, anxiety and addiction are often compatriots. They feed off each other and create a sense of hopelessness. Your struggle may be with substances (drugs/food), compulsive acts or obsessive thinking. However, they are often slightly different-shaped pieces to the same puzzle. Additionally, if you experienced trauma in your lifetime, you are even more susceptible to these disorders. Gratefully, there is hope and recovery for them! It is often not easy or quick, but it is doable. "God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless." -- Chester Nimitz, WWII Fleet Admiral.

Stepping out to ask for help can be incredibly intimidating and uncomfortable. I know how hard it is to ask for help, but the simple fact that you are looking for help makes you a step closer to healing than you were yesterday. Effective therapy is one that is based on a strong therapeutic relationship built on a mutual goal of healthy living. When emotions become overwhelming, we will work together to overcome struggles. You will never have to go through it alone. Whatever the obstacle ahead of us, as your counselor I will be right by your side every step of the way matching you step for step.

The focus of what I offer is to invite and empower you to practice trusting the wisdom of your body. By doing this, a more secure and trusting relationship with yourself can begin to develop. In time, this can help you to navigate stressors and aid you in trauma recovery. A person generally finds relief, compassion, and an empowered sense of self from this process.

Hi! I'm Maribeth, and I'm glad you've found me! It's so important to feel a sense of connection with a therapist. My philosophy is simple - I believe that we are all born as divine lights of the universe, but that through the course of our lives, we are given messages through the words or acts of others, or sometimes even ourselves, that impact how we see ourselves and the world. My style of therapy focuses on helping people change those messages to reflect the true nature of each of us - one of wholeness. Therapy, to me, is the act of holding space for someone as they journey towards their awakening.

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.

They may struggle with past hurts, shame, isolation, trauma, low self image, resentment, self-hatred, depression, or anxiety. They need someone to listen and to provide a safe place free of judgement where they will be heard. Their goals might include finding freedom, seeing their situation in a new light, gaining hope, finding their voice, or integrating their life experience and their spirituality.

Are you finding yourself feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and not sure how to cope? Perhaps you have a natural tendency to please and take care of others, but then find yourself struggling to cope. During my 20 plus years as a therapist, I've helped people with a variety of difficulties, and have developed a special interest in working with those who have a tendency to please and take care of others. I get you! You likely have difficulty saying "no" and end up taking on too much; you may struggle with feeling overwhelmed and stuck, lacking motivation, and likely feeling depressed, lonely, and/or anxious.

Reaching out for help can be difficult and intimidating. The truth, however, is that we are all human and there comes a time in everyone's life where we need help. Maybe we just need a non-judgmental, open minded, trustworthy person that we can sit down and talk to. Someone that can really listen and help to sort out our feelings and our situation. Someone who can help to make better sense of what is going on and maybe even help to come up with a plan for changing it.

Sometimes you need space that is only for you. Space for your feelings to be big, raw, and unedited while you sort through them without judgement from yourself or anyone else. Whether the issue is depression, anxiety, trauma, a life transition, relationship issues, parenting issues, sexuality/LGBTQ issues, religious abuse, or a need for personal growth, counseling can create a safe space to be your authentic messy self as you sort things out.

What type of Willard 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Willard?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
