Now accepting new clients! No longer a waitlist. As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a pastoral background, I firmly believe that solid, Biblical counsel, along with other counseling modalities tailored to individual needs can lead to a place of "serenity" and well-being. So many factors in everyday life can take their toll on us. Thus, I believe that it is important to find someone you feel you can trust to compassionately listen to your story and help give counsel that is solid and reliable and will lead you to a positive and enriching outcome. I hope to join you on your journey towards well-being.

I believe that one of the goals of therapy should be for a person to see a clear path to achieving life dreams. This often occurs through in-depth self study and examination, as well as telling one's story, and becoming comfortable with that story relative to a life situation. Through therapy, an individual develops the confidence he/she needs to face life and all its complications. A variety of treatment methods may be necessary to achieve the goals of therapy and a therapist should be willing to explore options based on the individual needs of his/her clients.

Going through any change in life is a challenge. It is perfectly normal to have feelings of doubt, uncertainty, and ambivalence. I truly believe that people are the expert on themselves. This allows me the opportunity to learn about each individual's unique experiences and provide an objective perspective. In doing this, it is my goal to assist each person in exploring different future options to help them achieve their best self. My promise to my clients is that I walk alongside them to offer support while making those changes. Ultimately, my hope is to make myself obsolete so that you become your own therapist.

I have many years of experience working with individuals who struggle with mental health and addiction problems. I use a skill-based approach to treatment called dialectical behavioral therapy. This type of treatment focuses on learning how to live in the moment, manage interpersonal relationships effectively, handle life's challenges with grace and competence, and understand and deal with feelings in constructive ways. Using my training and diagnostic knowledge I will develop a comprehensive treatment plan that emphasizes relapse prevention and living a life worth living. I work with a team of other mental health professionals including psychiatrists, and counselors.

Reaching out for help can be an overwhelming process that requires you to be courageous and vulnerable. When you are feeling sad, disconnected, hopeless, and uncomfortable in your own skin, the obstacles you face may seem hard to overcome. You have now taken the first step towards wellness and it is no longer out of your reach. I am glad you are here, especially if you may be feeling stressed and trapped in a world that just does not understand.

You may have ended up here if you have found yourself trying all of the fad diets only to have gained the weight back. When someone pulls out the dessert at events, you probably feel embarrassed, ashamed, and tend to withdraw because the thoughts you have about food consume you. It makes total sense that you believe if you were “the right size” you’d be happy and content with your body. The way we think and feel about our bodies and food directly impact our mental and physical health. In reality, the guilt and anxiety you have around food is what you need some support around – I get that and I am here for you!

What type of Mentor 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Mentor?
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.

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.
