Individual Therapy

If you feel it is time to make a change in your life, I provide individual counseling services to pre-teens, adolescents, young adults, adults and elders. The changes may be due to long term suffering from symptoms and situations like childhood trauma, PTSD, grief and bereavement, ADHD, anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, self-harm, poor frustration and anger tolerance, or male specific issues.

Our first 90 minute session will help define changes you want to make and what it will look like when disruptive symptoms no longer exist. Subsequent 60 minute sessions will review weekly progress on objectives, discuss self-work assignments, practice skills, and enhance motivation to meet goals. Call me at 406-396-7834 to see if working together is right for you.



 Family Therapy

Offering counseling services for families struggling with issues involving divorce and separation, parenting challenges, life transitions, domestic violence and abuse, sibling rivalries, challenging or harmful behaviors involving pre-teens and teens, harmful behaviors, boundary setting, trauma, grief and loss, adoption, and school issues.

In family therapy, I use a family systems approach that generally means that the entire family should be involved in addressing challenges. I encourage the use of the Positive Discipline parenting approach where it is appropriate.

Young Adult College Transitions

I am excited to work with young adults as they launch into independence by providing life skills development including finding an apartment, transitional supports for adapting to college life, support connecting with local resources including medication providers, and therapeutic services.

The college transition can be a stressful experience for both young adults and parents. This is especially so if the young adult has never lived on their own, has come from a boarding school or treatment facility, or has struggled with legal issues, substance abuse, or academic challenges.

This service provides clinical and case management support, when needed, to improve the likelihood of a successful transition process or to redirect one that is off course. This process helps student and parents set achievable goals, improve communication in order to reduce stress, develop problem solving strategies, and enhance accountability and motivation to stay on course. Along the way, we identify needs and marshal the plentiful resources available in the Missoula community to meet outcomes that launch them into independence.

After the initial assessment, I tailor the services provided to meet your needs. These may include traditional outpatient therapy, family therapy using Skype or phone, parent consultation and training, or more intensive case management services.

Call me at 406-396-7834 to discuss treatment options, intensity of treatment provided, and fee structure.
