In person Counseling & Therapies

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy helps people understand themselves and others, and how to navigate life's difficulties. It's a deep dive into awareness, problematic behaviors, beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and compulsions, to improve functionality, relationships, and social skills.

Relationships

Our identities grow out of a sense of reference points in social expectations and relationships. How we manage relationships activates our well-being. In counseling, we'll identify how this plays out over your lifespan and how you can grow in your ability to create connections, and establish & maintain significant romantic relationships.

EMDR Light Bar Therapy

EMDR & Brainspotting

Eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR)is an eye-movement therapy for mental health conditions occurring due to memories from past traumatic events. It treats trauma of any kind like PTSD, abuse, Adverse Childhood Experiences, accidents, the shock of illness, etc.

Brainspotting is used for the same purpose of neutralizing negative emotions and activating emotional regulation.

Nutritional Therapies for Mental Health

Women's Life Transitions

Pastoral/Christian Counseling

This integrates psychotherapy with

strategies to address the microbiome (Gut health), Mind-Body Techniques, sleep problems, mood-boosting exercise strategies that WORK, recognizing

nutritional deficiencies, key nutrients for pain control, mood, attention and

cognition, hormone issues, and diet-based relapse prevention strategies.

As women, we go through many transitions in education, relationships, motherhood & caregiving, in our careers, as homeowners, as empty nesters, retirees, in medical needs, menopause, widowhood, and more. Every new decade delivers a life passage with different needs & desires. Life Transitions Counseling helps you define your purpose with self-exploration, growth, resources & a plan for intentional living.

You matter to God

Many women of faith choose a counselor with the same worldview. You can choose to integrate Bibical principle into your counseling for a pastoral counseling method or integrate research-based psychological treatments with a Biblical world view.
