Choosing a counselor is an important decision. Prior to meeting with new clients, I will talk with you on the phone, giving you a chance to ask questions and see if my experience and therapy style are a good fit for you.
Welcome to my site! I'm glad you found me and hope that my services will be a fit for you. I am a licensed therapist in Helena, Montana, and the owner/operator of Mount Helena Counseling, PLLC.
I believe that most of us desire the same thing - to be truly seen and understood by another. Most of my clients enter therapy feeling alone and stuck in their thoughts and emotions. As your therapist, my goal is to help you feel understood, while teaching you skills to use in the real world, outside of my office. My style has been described as compassionate, but practical.
I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment, with focus on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Learn more about my treatment approach for specific issues on my Services page.
Prior to private practice, I provided therapy in a college setting, working with young adults with a variety of challenges. I've also worked as a parent and family life educator. My educational and career background have given me the heart of a teacher. I strive to teach my clients WHY we do what we do, HOW the brain works, and WHAT we can do to change.
I welcome people from all walks of life into my practice. I won't judge you, and I will treat you with respect and kindness. I will also offer therapeutic modalities that are backed by solid research support.
I hope to hear from you! Please contact me with any questions you have about my practice.
