Positive and Solution-Based Counseling Services in Missoula, MT

Center for Positive Change, LLC.

Psychotherapy is an active process resulting in clarity and change. It can help you identify ineffective patterns of thinking and behavior, which may create: stress, emotional problems, stress related medical problems, addiction problems, and/or relationship problems. Although the work can be difficult, it is profoundly rewarding and life changing.

We focus on solutions rather than problems, and as such help people:

  • Move from being down to being up

  • Reverse loneliness

  • Turn inner turmoil to inner peace

  • Resolve marriage & relationship conflicts

  • Tolerate the unbearable misery of illness

  • Turn life stress into life balance

  • Move from worry & fear, to peace & confidence

  • Turn from feeling lost to living with a life strategy

At the Center for Positive Change, LLC, our goal is to mutually determine the cause of your problems. Together, we then develop effective and lasting strategies. Finally, we implement positive long-term solutions as you move towards well-being. I use a combination of approaches because the "one size fits all" approach simply lacks results.

I spend much of my day helping people control their panic, depression, trauma, anxiety, grief, OCD symptoms, loneliness, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or relationship/marriage issues. I also have a special area of interest in working with stress-related medical problems (i.e., high blood pressure, headaches, digestive problems, COPD, and heart problems).

I strongly believe in working as a team consisting of: you, your physician, other medical providers, and myself in complimentary medicine. I believe you are the most important member of your mind-body-spirit medical treatment team.

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
