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.
