I know from my own experience that sometimes those struggles and challenges can threaten to overwhelm us, making us feel frightened, alone, and doubting our ability to manage them. When I faced those challenges, I was grateful for both the help I received and the insight I gained from my experience.
As the Founder and Director of Gooding Wellness Group, it’s immensely gratifying to help others find the right therapist with the right training and expertise, for the best possible outcome.
Motivated by this conviction, I began my work in private practice, specializing in treating and supporting adults, couples, and families impacted by substance use disorder. The knowledge I gained in private practice reinforced my belief in the meaningful impact communities, families, and organizations have on someone’s success, and this belief remains one of my core values today
Through my work, I recognized there was a greater need for private therapists with a solid background in working with young people, as well as those struggling with substance use disorder. So in 2017, I reached out to other talented clinicians and founded the Gooding Wellness Group. The team I chose had the specialized training and experience required to understand the demands and stressors that young people face and the desire to support children, adolescents, and teens, and their families, confronting a variety of academic, social, emotional, and traumatic challenges.
To stay true to this purpose, the Group has expanded to include professionals specializing in treating an array of relationship issues and mental health challenges, including addiction, eating disorders, codependency, anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief, to name a few. We take advantage of the full range of expertise our clinicians bring, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization & Processing (EMDR), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), neuropsychology, and 12-step recovery.
