One of my greatest pleasures of being a counselor is the honor of witnessing and helping a client along their personal journey to a life worth living. I assist my clients, which include adolescents and adults, to find healthy perceptions of themselves, identify skills, and strengthen their relationships to find peace, hope, and joy. There is no single approach for every client, and I have been trained in a range of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and client centered techniques. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling from the University of Mississippi. I have a B.A. in Psychology from The University of Memphis. I have been practicing as an outpatient therapist in community and private clinic settings since 2013. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Minnesota, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Wisconsin, and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC). I have just recently moved to the sunny Southwest - Albuquerque, New Mexico to be exact! So if you're in MN or WI I'm just an hour behind. :) I look forward to talking with you and helping you on your journey towards the life you want. *she/her

A relationship with a therapist is it’s own sort of bond, and can often mirror other relationships you have experienced. Our sessions will sometimes feel like friends catching up over a cup of coffee, and will sometimes feel heavier than that. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can learn about yourself and how you interact with the world. I will challenge maladaptive behaviors that are getting in your way, even while validating that these same behaviors helped you survive at some point in your life. I want to be your partner in solving the mystery of you, and be your collaborator in figuring out strategies to help you move forward into well-being and happiness. You come to me because something in your life isn’t going right, and I welcome you with loving kindness. I will use everything you teach me about yourself to assist you in reaching your self-defined goals. I work with adults with anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, relationship difficulties, attachment disorders, personality disorders, mood disorders, life transitions, addiction, general trauma, childhood trauma, social anxiety, grief and loss, identity exploration, and even more. I have specific training in several different therapeutic modalities, including trauma therapy. I am a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) in Minnesota with 7 years of professional work experience and 50 years of life experience. I work from an eclectic mix of psychological theories and fully embrace the concepts of unconditional positive regard, harm reduction, and strengths-based treatment planning. I ask you to set the direction of our work together, and you can count on me to keep us on track.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Rushmore region and in the state of Minnesota. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Rushmore or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Rushmore area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Rushmore therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Rushmore due to a higher cost of living.

While many psychologists in Rushmore may not take health insurance, some in the state of Minnesota may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Rushmore?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Rushmore therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Rushmore therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Rushmore therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Rushmore therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in MN, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 56168 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Rushmore 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 Rushmore.

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 Rushmore 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 Rushmore counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

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 Rushmore, Minnesota 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.

Rushmore has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

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.
