If your teenager is in turmoil and you don't know what to do I can provide them with a safe place to take a deep breath and unload their problems. Being a teenager is hard enough and the ever-increasing demands and pressures from school and society can take their toll. Along with adolescents and their families, my other area of specialty is help and healing for women who are having emotional difficulties after having an abortion. For some women, this experience can cause severe anxiety, guilt, anger and bitterness. I am trained to help you through this, grieve the loss and move forward in a completely non-judgmental setting.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) is a short-term, evidence-based treatment for kids ages 2.5 to 7 years old who exhibit behaviors such as anger, hyperactivity, trouble focusing, frequent tantrums, aggression, and anxiety. Caregivers learn and implement play therapy techniques that help kids regulate their emotions, increase focus, and strengthen the parent-child relationship. Caregivers learn concrete strategies to promote consistency, predictability, and motivate their child to follow directions. PCIT with Toddlers is an adaptation of PCIT for kids ages 12-24 months with similar behavior concerns.

There's nothing worse than feeling like just another client in a counselor's rotation. You're sitting there pouring out your heart, while he/she glances at their watch, making sure you're not going past your allotted time slot. I see people and I know that the circumstances you're facing are real, and they have a real impact on how your life is lived. When you sit down with me, you get more than some fancy counseling lingo, you get a person who genuinely cares about your well-being. And best of all? You'll leave with practical tools that will help you thrive in real life.

I believe people seek out counseling when they have realized their life has become unbalanced and they are asking for help to heal either their mind, body or spirit, or at times all three. Reaching out for assistance I always viewed as a strength and I am in this profession to be the hand you grab onto so we can walk this path together. My mindset is there are always stepping stones to get to the path we are destined to find whether it be anxiety, stress management, conflict resolution or relationship breakdown. I would provide a safe place for healing and guide you along with each stepping stone as we build a strong foundation.

Update 9/1/22- At this time I am only taking the following types of clients: First Responders and mental health counselors. Practicing clinicians know well that doing this challenging work means our own feelings, our counter-transference experiences will arise. How do we function as self monitoring professionals? One way is to know when to seek therapy for ourselves. When we work on our own issues, we provide better care for our clients. I have been grateful for many opportunities to provide consultation and psychotherapy for other clinicians. If I can be of help to you, please reach out.

As a young girl, I wanted to be a teacher. I got my teaching certificate and then a degree in counseling and guidance. Increasingly, the field of psychology captured my attention. My training focused on children and families which led to working with couples. In my work with children, I developed expertise in the areas of trauma and pediatric illnesses and led to trauma with adults and to work in end-of-life issues. The field of psychology has changed so much! 40 years ago people attended therapy for years. Now people can utilize the tools and strategies the therapy can provide in fewer than five sessions.

What type of Bluffton 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 Bluffton?
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.
