21 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed counselor in Idaho, Virginia, and Florida with 21 years of experience. I have a strong background in trauma, secondary traumatization, depression, military members, PTSD/anxiety, TBI, different cultures, LGBTQ, and those who have experienced disaster. I use a cognitive-behavioral approach combined with other theories that will be tailored to your specific needs. I have worked with clients who just need a bit of guidance to those who have much more complicated needs. I consider it a privilege to work with people through difficult and/or painful issues that maybe they have never told anyone about. I specialize in being present with clients as we explore new methods for generating a healthier balanced life. I have experience working with clients in the medical field, military, law enforcement, and fire departments. I am outgoing and easy to talk to. I believe that everyone can benefit from counseling at some point in their life. I especially enjoy assisting people with creating a balance in their lives and balancing stress with relaxation and mindfulness. I look forward to meeting with you to explore the possibilities of creating a more balanced and less stressful life.

Mental health is health. Taking care of your mental health is no different than taking care of your dental or physical health. Learning to manage your emotions and how to cope in a positive manner is just as important as taking good care of your body. When you feel ready to commit to working on your mental health I am here to provide a safe place to explore the barriers that are preventing you from living the life you truly want to live. I believe in whole-body wellness, and that healing comes from a place of both acceptance, and the willingness and openness to change. It takes courage to ask for help and support, and I want you to know that you don't need to do the hard work alone. Together, we can take those steps towards actively healing those emotional wounds, removing those internal barriers, and building up your confidence to ultimately reach your personal goals.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Dalton Gardens counselor?

Before seeing your Dalton Gardens therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Dalton Gardens.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Dalton Gardens licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Dalton Gardens counselor can be dependent on your process.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Dalton Gardens, Idaho can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
