I specialize in working with women's issues in people ages 18 and older.
What do you seek? Does suffering get in the way? Let's use your hardships as a vehicle of transformation into the greatest version of you. Arise and Heal Counseling is founded upon this vision for your life. In therapy, I work to foster a healing relationship with you by creating a space of safety and unconditional acceptance in hopes you undertake a personal journey of growth. I not only help you fix what is wrong, but build what is right. I observe the dignity and strength in each person regardless of who they are or their behaviors. Once trust is established, I will encourage you to take risks and create the changes you seek.

Soothe anxiety, embrace your truest self, and feel confident in your own skin. You desire a life in which you are thriving, but right now you feel stuck and held captive by anxiety. You can't shake the constant worry or second guessing of things you say or do, and while you care deeply for others, you're hardest on yourself- like you're never enough. Perhaps it feels as though your inner self doesn't match your life on the outside. It's possible to have a fulfilling relationship with yourself and love your life without the unhelpful thoughts and conditioning from your environment that don't reflect you.

My practice reflects my personal commitment to ongoing growth and expansion. My approach is direct and practical, integrative and holistic. Having been in practice 30 years I offer you a plethora of skills,tools, training and experience. Regardless of presenting issues most people seek counsel because something is not working and feels painful. This pain comes from resisting the call to make changes, literally blocking your aliveness/energy making you feel unhappy and "stuck". My role is to offer ways to release this resistance at all levels: mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I tailor sessions to meet your individual needs.

My goal as a therapist is to assist you on your journey of self-awareness and personal discovery. I like to take a here-and-now approach during therapy and I also believe that understanding your present and being able to be fully aware of your thoughts and actions in the moment will help unlock and uncover unresolved issues from your past. I strongly believe in the concept of subjective reality. I enjoy working with a wide variety of clientele and have a special interest in working with adolescent and young adult females, and individuals and couples in areas of sexual intimacy.

What type of Bend 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 Bend?
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.
