Not everyone who attends therapy is suffering from major depression or anxiety disorders. Sometimes we all need a space to process our feelings and experiences in order to grow and become better versions of ourselves. One of my favorite things as a therapist is to walk with someone who has great awareness and insight, while also wants to become healthier and grow into a better version of himself/herself. I truly believe that therapy can be beneficial for everyone because the process of being vulnerable, open, and connecting with another human brings about knowledge, growth, and satisfaction!

As a collaborative therapist I view you as the expert on your life. I am your guide through the process of growth and not your leader. Through a systemic approach we will look at how relational contexts influence our construct of the world. This includes all aspects of life including influences from family, community, and society. We do not look at a mental health diagnosis as the only answer. Instead we attempt to stay away from the label a mental health diagnosis may create. Each individual experience in therapy is a unique journey based on your own particular needs.

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.

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.

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.

If you're like most people, you have been thinking about counseling for awhile now. It often takes people months, sometimes years to finally make that first appointment. Congratulations. It takes a tremendous amount of courage to admit to needing help and even more to seeking it out. I continue to be honored and humbled by my clients' willingness to open up to me and allowing me to help them. What you are about to do (or are at least thinking of doing) is a decision that could profoundly change your life for the better. Let me help you to recognize your own courage, strength and other unique abilities and draw on them to see lasting change in your life.

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.

In 55408 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

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.

Therapist/Life Coach

In 55122 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

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.
