The goal of my psychotherapy practice is to create a safe place for clients to learn how to change patterns that no longer work for them. I see each of my clients as uniquely molded by past and present influences, and I endeavor to understand the impact these influences have on my clients' lives. I use an approach of curiosity and compassion to help my clients better understand themselves, and gain self-acceptance. I accept my clients for where they are at, and I commit to helping clients get to where (and who and what) they want to be.

Psychotherapy can include individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy and address a variety of issues such as depression, addiction, relationship issues, or anxiety. Depending on what you are looking for in therapy, we will work together to come up with a customized treatment plan for your individual situation and your goals. I have trained in a variety of treatment methods, but find that I most commonly use mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family systems in my work. We will explore your family history, how you grew up, and important relationships. We will also help you to develop coping strategies that use mindfulness, relaxation, and behavioral changes.

I adopt a holistic approach to therapy. I view you as an integrated whole--a person with unique goals, hopes, and fears. I do not endorse a 'one size fits all' approach; thus, my services are tailored to your specific needs. I offer strength based and solution focused services. Thus, I emphasize your existing skills, help identify your areas of growth, and offer you specific strategies to promote your personal growth. Our work together challenges unhelpful thinking patterns and self-defeating behaviors, increases self-empowerment, promotes physical health and emotional well-being, and creates the space for your hopes to materialize.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55126 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

I work with individuals, couples, families and groups as they seek to overcome obstacles in their life and/or better understand themselves. I believe in our ability to heal, and will approach our work together from a solution oriented approach and one in which we work together as a team to both develop your treatment goals and meet them. In addition to the more traditional approach, I also use several creative methods in the journey to meet your goals - such as the use of photography, art or immersion in nature. I am also certified by EAGALA to practice Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning, and find horses incredibly gifted at helping humans find healing.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

I'll help you explore what's getting in the way of living the life you want, and support you as you start experiencing more of what's important to you. You'll gain insight into your personal challenges and learn useful tools for managing yourself, your relationships and your problems. My philosophy is that our past experiences and the ways we've learned to deal with stress and relationships often leave us unprepared to cope with current issues. We tend to rely on old habits to solve problems and end up feeling frustrated or disappointed. With support, you'll discover your capacity to feel more comfortable with yourself and share that with others.

In 55104 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating word to describe the process of working on your emotional well-being. I try to take the intimidation and mystery out of the counseling process with a straightforward, yet kind approach, whether I am working with individuals, couples, or families. The biggest predictor of success in therapy is the connection with the therapist. No one can be a good fit for everyone. Consider your first visit to be an audition for the therapist to see if it feels right for you. I have extensive experience working on issues of anxiety, depression, life transitions, sex and porn addictions, and trauma, to name a few. I do in-office and online counseling.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 55402 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

I believe that the difficulties we encounter in our lives develop in relationship and get healed in relationship. Because of the nature of the therapeutic situation and the relationship you form with your therapist, psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to explore the ways in which you may repeat frustrating or painful experiences in your life, to relieve suffering and grow your capacity to tolerate unpleasurable (as well as pleasurable) feelings, and to experience yourself in a new way.

Psychotherapy is a very general term that refers to the process of a trained professional helping an individual, couple, or family sort through their feelings, thoughts, and relationships. I have been providing psychotherapy for over 10 years, using a very practical, problem-solving, strengths-based approach. Often this involves the use of hypnosis, but not necessarily. I like to identify up-front with my clients the goals they are looking to achieve, so that we can assess together over time how well we're doing at reaching them. We adjust the process along the way to help them get the maximum benefit out of their sessions with me.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a relational therapist who works from a narrative perspective. That means that I preference the knowledge and experience of the people who chose to work with me. While I can offer tools, theories and techniques to make the changes you want in your life, our work together will always be centered around your personal values and preferences. I take great care to work at a pace that is right for you and on goals that you identify. I use warmth, humor and curiosity to create an impactful therapeutic experience.

The craft of psychotherapy is part science and part artistry. I am informed by current research and also my extensive clinical experience (35 years) to build a solid therapeutic relationship with you. Once this occurs the trust will exist to allow us to create unique solutions your concerns. I take a cognitive behavioral approach, but find it helpful at times to explore your past as a way to help get "unstuck". I help clients to learn to better deal with emotions, to be assertive and to build self-confidence to feel better. I work with a wide variety of problems - see my web page for more details. My therapeutic style is engaging, warm, sometimes humorous and down to earth.
