I use clinically tested and evidence-based interventions and often use humor to help individuals find the positives amid life's challenges. I believe what makes me unique is my background as the daughter of a military father and my career as a Flight Attendant. I flew internationally for TWA and domestically for Continental Airlines.

15 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington state and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the states of Oregon and Wyoming. I’m a good fit if you want a therapist who both accepts your process when you need to talk things out, but who will also coach you in specific tools and techniques for feeling better, performing better, and flourishing. Clients tell me that they like that I balance accepting their process with patience whilst actively providing the tools for change and the push for change when needed. I specialize in applying the tools, techniques, and knowledge of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Positive Psychology to assist adults with fostering better relationships, improving quality of life, and increasing capacity for resilience in the face of setbacks and trauma. I also assist my clients to access their unique character strengths, experience more positive emotions, and deepen their sense of meaning, and engagement in their daily lives. I believe that people change and grow by developing opportunities and resources more than by merely managing problems. Treatment may assist you to identify, build, and utilize your strengths. Treatment may also help you to improve your relationships and your ability to relate to other people and to yourself. What you do outside of treatment in your daily life will be as important in fostering change and promoting healing as the work we do in our meetings. METHODS AND THERAPEUTIC ORIENTATION - DBT-informed treatment: DBT consists of the technology of change (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and the technology of acceptance (skills for building awareness, commonly referred to as "mindfulness"). - Positive Psychology: clinical tools, techniques and interventions derived from the empirical study of well-being, attachment, meaning, flourishing, resilience, and achievement. - Interpersonal Neurobiology: Many clients find it easier to understand skills for managing stress, emotions, addictions, and relationships when these are explained within the context of the brain works; you might find it easier to relate to therapy when it is explained in terms of the brain and the nervous system. - EMDR: EMDR promotes the efficient and safe processing of disturbing memories and emotions. Effective counseling depends on the quality of the relationship that a counselor establishes with you. As a counselor, I commit to the following: to seek to understand your perspective; listen for your most important concerns; accept you without judgement; respect your freedom and autonomy; follow you in determining the goals of your recovery; honor your ideas, your timing, and your pace of change especially when you have moments of doubt and indecision.

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical therapist in Wyoming with over 30 years of experience as a social worker. I have spent my entire career serving youth and families often involved in the criminal justice and foster care system. I am a strong believer that every child deserves a permanent family, either through safe family reunification, adoption or guardianship. I also strongly advocate that children have the right to be raised with their family if it is safe. One of my greatest joys is working with alumni of the foster care system as they break cycles of negative behaviors and practice new skills to raise their children in a healthy safe home. Serving this population I have developed skills for depression, anxiety, abandonment, trauma, all forms of abuse and neglect, parenting, relationships and special needs of children of incarcerated parents and the incarcerated parent. I work with families on adoption preparation, disruption and the importance of birth family involvement and management. As a foster and adoptive parent I have learned to draw on my experiences but be open and willing to listen and brainstorm new ways to help youth and families heal. My counseling style is relaxed with an appropriate sense of humor. Dignity and respect are rights everyone human being deserves. and I honor different perspectives and lifestyles. I use solution focused, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapies. I will start where people are and walk with them towards healing.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Hanna 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.

Hanna 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 Hanna therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

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

Before seeing your Hanna 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 Hanna.

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 Hanna 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 Hanna 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 Hanna, Wyoming 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.

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.
