My Approach to Helping
I work with children, teens, and adults struggling with anxiety, mood, or attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD). I would like to help you promote immediate relief of suffering by providing you with tools for coping with current struggles, combined with insight-oriented work to understand how life experiences impact current struggles. This approach helps create long-lasting effects of treatment and your hope for leading a happier and more fulfilling life. (Most of the sessions are conducted through telehealth but I also offer walk and talk therapy at a public location in the central SD area for children and adults who prefer in-person sessions.
Therapy is personalized to your need. Adult clients often prefer insight-oriented work including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy while kids improve their conditions through play therapy and sand play therapy. I also specialize in parenting sessions to support parents with challenges they face in each developmental phase of the children.
I might not have experienced what you are going through, but I do understand the pain and feelings. I work with people of all ages (3+). If you are interested in working with me, please visit my website and read more about what I can offer.
