Each of our counselors & life coaches have varying specialties including LGBTQ , depression, anxiety, substance abuse, domestic violence, PTSD and trauma, life transitions, and more.
Currently accepting new clients, practice-wide! Problems are here to stay for the long-haul. Stress is optional. We are a group of counselors who provide a space for self-reflection. We help you do the inner work, to learn what you aren’t necessarily aware of, to bring forward a deeper layer of yourself, and to understand why we are the way we are. Once we can understand that we do have a choice in all the chaos, we can start to heal.

I am LGBTQIA affirming.
Life is challenging, complex, and often stressful. Making the decision to seek help with life's challenges may seem over-whelming. People seek professional help for many reasons; to help sort things out; to receive support; to get through a difficult period; to learn new ways of coping; to strengthen personal and professional relationships; and to get relief. Regardless of the reason, I will make every effort to make this a smooth and comfortable process. I am a seasoned therapist with 30 years of experience. If you are ready for growth and are committed to living a healthier and happier life; therapy can change you.

I work with the LGBTQIA + community and other marginalized individuals.
I believe you should be met with compassion, no matter your past or current experiences. I will meet you where you are and walk beside you in the therapeutic process. I enjoy helping others learn new ways of coping and offer alternative ways to process through struggles as a non-judgemental party. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and I am a registered art therapist. I work with individuals experiencing trauma, dissociation, complex trauma traits (aka: personality disorders) anxiety, mood disorders, community reintegration, chemical dependency, and interpersonal relationship struggles.

I deeply enjoy working with the LGBTQ + community, adults, and adolescents.
Currently accepting new clients! Every experience we have shapes how we view ourselves and the world. My approach to counseling/ coaching is to help recognize that you absolutely have the power to change the things you don't love about your life- let's put the power back in your hands. You will learn how to best serve you, and unlearn things that no longer serve you. My hope is for you to gain the confidence to work through hardships as they arise in the future.

I am also LGBTQ + affirming.
It can be exhausting to cope with self-criticism and the feeling of never being good enough. Whether you're used to criticizing your body, your academic/work performance, or your social relationships, it can be tough to imagine a world in which you are kind to yourself. Through therapy, we can work together to address your inner critic and find new ways to cope with the stress of everyday life.

Often people know there's something wrong but aren't certain how to fix it. Or they know they "should be" doing certain things but can't quite seem to manage to do them. I help individuals who want to feel satisfied with their lives but instead feel overwhelmed, out of control, and stuck in the same place no matter what they do.

My philosophy of counseling is to collaboratively work with the client to achieve their best self as guided by their goals and hopes for their life. I believe counseling is most effective when the client takes an active role in working towards these goals through their willingness to consider and try new approaches. I also strive to provide an environment of support and empathy, which is free of judgement, so that clients feel comfortable exploring personal issues.

Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, and helplessness often bring people into psychotherapy. I help children, adolescents, and adults individually or couples with emotional issues. These important issues present in our lives in many ways including relationship problems, feelings of anger, anxiety or depression that many times do not make sense or may feel that things may seem unchangeable. May be difficult to imagine that current circumstances in your life could ever be better. For example, difficulties with work or school performance, or you may simply feeling stuck.

Currently accepting new clients. I think of counseling as collaborative, where I am able to act as mirror and consultant. I work to highlight your strengths and positive aspects, while gently pointing out certain aspects of thoughts and/or behaviors that might be contributing to your reasons for coming to counseling. And always, I hope to foster a safe, nonjudgmental environment.

Do you find yourself dissatisfied and unfulfilled? Are you struggling to get through your day, too focused on the pain or stress to find the joy in life? Sometimes it feels like there's no point, like these are the cards we have been dealt and there's nothing we can do to change it. But I am here to tell you that you have the power. We as humans are resilient beings, capable of growth and transformation. While sometimes we cannot change our circumstances, we all have the tools and abilities to develop new perspectives, habits and thought patterns that can help us lead happy and meaningful lives.

My ideal client would be interested in bettering themselves. They would be looking for support and be willing to start with the basics including identifying and practicing coping skills. They would want to learn how to control their emotions better and learn about how to manage stress.

What if all of those negative thoughts just didn’t bother you anymore? What if you could find a healthy way to not only process them, but let them go? Does it ever feel like you have a dark cloud hanging over yourself. Constant negative thoughts running through your mind. Maybe memories of trauma or negative experiences that creep up constantly. They may have happened years ago, but to you, it feels like yesterday. Life can be difficult enough without also having to fight negative thoughts and feelings in your own mind. It’s exhausting. And worst of all, it can stop you for accomplishing your goals and living your best life.

I am here to provide you with support in a non-judgmental way and to help you meet the goals you have for yourself. In the collaborative space we create together, I invite you to show up for the work of healing whatever you identify as your focus for our time together.

When life gets dark, it is hard to see the light. All it takes is one step to begin to find your way again. At the core of my practice is support, trust, and the inherent worthiness of each individual. I walk beside you offering my encouragement, support and knowledge on your path to healing, connection and wellness. Though I work with many of life’s difficulties my focus is generally in working with adults who have trouble with stress, anxiety, fear, rejection, the feeling of "not enough", depression, sadness, life transitions, self-esteem, understanding and being understood.

Often times, the human experience is anything but easy. With the reality of the unknown, societal pressures to conform, and a never ending to do list, there is no wonder why we tend to feel over worked, stressed, anxious, and mentally unwell. Let's take this opportunity to talk about the individual struggles that we endure at the fault of others and even ourselves. We will work to create a plan of action to manage difficult feelings such as shame, hopelessness, and worthlessness while also gaining insight to pursue making healthy choices and gaining perspective.

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.
