About Me

Thank you for allowing me to be part of the beautiful journey you have set in motion for yourself. I understand it can be difficult to share thoughts and emotions with a stranger but I challenge you to continue to be open-minded and continue to be courageous with me. Change is possible when you are willing to make a commitment to the process…

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona. My years of experience comes from a variety of settings: outpatient, inpatient, and community based. I have a holistic approach which has been most effective because not everyone is the same and people require a unique individual approach. I utilize the following therapeutic approaches: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Strength based therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Mindfulness.

Everyone experiences various obstacles in life which includes trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, anger, and addiction. I am here to listen and be part of your support system. Together we can identify triggers and develop skills to manage unwanted thoughts and behaviors. You will develop a deeper understanding of self and thrive with self-confidence so you can continue to move forward in your journey.

There is hope…

Literally the best therapist I have! It truly means a lot to me how she ask how I am doing and actually being friendly. I did have some anxiety when I was signing up for better help because I have heard from my friends that therapist can be mean and very blunt too. But Im happy that Rhiannon has showed me such kindness and was being straightforward about things making me rethink the ways I've been dealing with. She have helped me out so much and I just appreciate it so much.

I have had one session with Rhiannon so far, and she has been extremely supportive and responsive thus far. She attentively listened to my background and a summary of my life journey up to my current mental and emotional status and asked pointed questions to help me assess my situation. I look forward to our next session. Thanks Rhiannon!

I was very hesitant to do therapy, let alone virtual therapy, but Rhiannon has help ease all my worries about virtual and made it feel as natural as possible. So far, it has been a good experience and I feel like I can really trust Rhiannon & hopeful about the continuation of this therapy.

Rhiannon is a kind and patient listener. I'm able to share everything I'm feeling and get guidance on better understanding why I may be feeling this way. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, but Rhiannon has helped me navigate through the grief and I feel so much progress in identifying my feelings and processing in a healthy way.
