How we treat?

Cultural sensitivity and humility are imperative to successful treatment. Glacier Mental Health Services is dedicated to creating a safe and supportive environment for all peoples and communities. It is my responsibility and mission to continuously challenge my understanding of mental health as it relates to different communities, cultures, experiences of oppression and more. I am passionate about getting to know my clients’ stories and understanding their perspectives to inform treatment in the best possible way.

Individual Therapy

In therapy, you will experience a relationship unlike any other, one that is both professional and perhaps extremely vulnerable. I will take the time to get to know you, your individual needs, strengths, values and challenges. It will also be important for you to get to know me so that we can work together to attain the goals you set for yourself. Individual therapy can take many forms, dependent on each individual client’s needs.

Couples Therapy

In couples therapy my goal is to make each partner feel heard, understood and cared for. Couples easily get “stuck” in patterns of communication that are no longer working for them. My role is to help couples stop the unhelpful patterns and learn new ways of communicating and actively listening to one another so that each partner’s needs are met.

Family Therapy

Family therapy can be a very dynamic and complex process, as families are dynamic and complex. I work from a systems approach which looks at family roles, communication patterns and general habits to identify helpful and effective versus unhelpful and ineffective dynamics. I also like to focus on family strengths and values, utilizing those as the foundation of the progress desired.

Play Therapy

Children often do not have the words to explain their internal experiences (thoughts and feelings). Therefore, play offers a window into that experience as children use their imagination to express themselves through play. Play will also be utilized to teach your child new ways of coping and expressing his or her experiences to parents, teachers and other caregivers to have his or her needs met. Play therapy is often utilized in family therapy services as well.
