My clients are not interested in receiving a psychiatric diagnosis, but are seeking an expert who provides psychological services. My broad range of training & experience allows me to bring my expertise to, for example, attorneys and judges needing input on a case, to family business owners trying to sort out costly (in dollars and relationships) conflicts, to business owners trying to retain their employees, and to individuals seeking input for life problems. I offer a practical performance-oriented approach and for those who would be better helped with insurance-based psychotherapy, I assist them to find the appropriate referral.

You're feeling stuck. Perhaps you know what’s holding you back and haven't been at a place in life to address it, or maybe you’re just overwhelmed by all life keeps throwing at you. Either way, it's hard and it keeps getting harder. And now, add social distancing and quarantining and face masks, and it feels out of control. You've been thinking about reaching out for a while, but the timing has never seemed right. But now, due to COVID-19, you can access most counselors from your home on your computer, tablet or phone.

I have a passion for working with behaviorally challenging kids and their parents. I enjoy the process of sorting through the outward difficult behaviors and discovering the root of their actions. I have worked with troubled teens and tweens for more than 10 years and have discovered that there is always more than meets the eye with these youngsters. The teenaged years and the few preceding years are difficult times not only for the kids, but parents and caretakers. It may seem that nothing helps manage their behaviors and emotions. I can help kids and their parents find solutions to defiant behaviors.

It happened again. The hint of sarcasm. The blatant disrespect. “Why do I put up with this?” you ask yourself over and over. When it happens, your mind is screaming on the inside, yet there you stand. Frozen. Most of the time with a smile on your face. You may as well be invisible. They don’t see the hard work, the anxiety, the struggle, the loneliness. Often you don’t notice it either as you stay so incredibly busy…except for on those days when there may as well be an elephant standing on your chest. It’s heavy, and you couldn’t move if you wanted to. The nagging voice inside blames it all on you. Worst of all you believe it.

I believe one of the most challenging things that you can do is to begin to understand your own story. We gather a lifetime of experiences which affect us in different ways. Holding on to past negative experiences prevents further exploration and healing. In a sense we get stuck in patterns of thinking and relating that hold us back from true potential and empowerment of our best assets.

In a small community, seeking help can be hard, embarrassing, and even shameful whether it's for you, your spouse, or your children. Do not let the stigma of asking for help hinder you from getting back to the person you want to be. This professional, comfortable, laid-back and private environment focuses on quality connection to support moving you from where you are, to the place you want to be. Life transitions, divorce, trauma, betrayal, personal challenges, loss, or sometimes a strong feeling or worry or sadness that just does not go away can all be reasons that counseling can be helpful.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Pierre, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Pierre listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Pierre are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Pierre

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Pierre you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Pierre and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Pierre or family therapy in Pierre.
