Not accepting new clients, wait list available.

My goals for all of my clients include building on effective life skills, learning new coping skills that empower you to reach your goals, processing past traumas to change core beliefs about yourself and the world, and overall feeling respected as a human being through the therapy process.

Feeling lost and overwhelmed by all the decisions and choices you are faced with daily can be stressful and exhausting, and stress can be magnified by the constant changes everyone experiences. These changes in relationships, your roles in school or workplace, family situations, and demands from others can all make you feel anxious, depressed...helpless. For some, the current health crisis has brought about changes that added isolation and loneliness to the mix. An increase in substance use in an effort to feel better is not unusual, but may add even more pressure to strained coping abilities.

I have a very rich understanding of mutual help groups, and I have contacts with providers of inpatient/detox services for substance use disorder treatment.
My ideal client would be someone who is prepared to complete tasks that are agreed upon in-session between the client and the therapist. The client would complete these tasks, on their own, away from the session, and would review the results in the next weekly session. I believe that any change that is made in a client's life, even the tiniest, has the potential to be a positive force for overall change. These series of small changes can build momentum, session to session, that ultimately empowers the client to live the life that they want to live. I believe in the power of therapy to provide recovery for anyone who tries.

I know for many people, myself included, asking for help can be a scary and vulnerable thing to do. However, I believe seeking help demonstrates bravery. Vulnerability does not make us weak; in fact, it makes us strong and courageous. It is my desire to work with individuals and assist them in their personal growth. I use many forms of therapy, but Cognitive Behavioral therapy is my most commonly used approach. I want to increase my clients' self-awareness. It is my goal to help individuals develop healthier thinking and behavioral patterns in order to improve the ways they view themselves and interact with others.

What type of Columbia 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 Columbia?
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.
