Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Research supports that people change through the therapeutic relationship. Regardless of techniques or training, the most important variable is the relationship between therapist and client. It is a place where, with a good therapist, clients can say whatever they want without being judged. There are few places in life where people can experience that. When we have started to talk about the problem, we are already starting to change.

The purpose of psychotherapy is to help you know and accept yourself at deeper levels so you can live a more full and successful life. You do not have to continue repeating self-defeating patterns in your life. When you really understand yourself you can then make conscious and intentional choices to change what needs to change. I will help you gain insight, get clear about what is true and important for you and find the strength within to grow forward to realize your full potential. Call today.

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Cottage Grove

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.

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.

Connie Studer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Cottage Grove

We are skilled at recognizing the most effective therapy approach to help you find more satisfaction and joy in life. You are unique and the issues you face are unique. After the initial intake sessions we will work together to prepare a treatment plan with your personal goals for therapy defined. Periodically we will evaluate your progress toward meeting those goals. In our practice we are skilled in several therapeutic approaches so that you can be assured that the most effective treatment for your issues will be available. The "fit" between therapist and client has been shown to predict a good outcome. We offer a 30 minute consultation at no charge to determine our "fit".

Heather Holt, MSW, LICSW

Licensed Indépendant Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of 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.

Psychotherapist

JoAnna Smith, MA, LMFT

Therapist/Life Coach

Within driving distance of 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.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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!

Psychotherapist

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of 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.
