Challenges in life occur for people of all ages. Professional counseling provides a safe, private, confidential and supportive avenue to reflect and explore on how to best understand and meet these challenges, so the joys of life can be more fully enjoyed. Dr. Dorothy Soukup, is a licensed psychologist with her doctorate in Counseling Psychology. She provides counseling services to children (3 and older), adolescents, and adults throughout the life span. She offers individual, couple, and family counseling related to relationship, behavior and work issues of all kinds.
She has 25+ years of experience as a psychologist. Having worked in a variety of outpatient mental health clinics, university counseling centers, and owning her own private practice for ten years, Dr. Soukup has a rich background as a clinician and teacher. Some of her passions include working with children and teens especially around issues of family change, school challenges and behavior issues. She is particularly knowledgeable and experienced in working with children and teens challenged by excessive anxiety and or ADHD. As a previous classroom teacher and with her training in psychology, Dr. Soukup can help your child/adolescent manage the organization and learning demands of the school environment and ultimately be more successful and confident.
Dr. Soukup relies heavily on Cognitive Behavior Therapy and teaching clients how to break free of thinking and behavior patterns which keep a person captive to depression, anxiety, and maladaptive eating patterns or relationship conflicts. However, she draws heavily on strength-based approaches, family therapy models including Internal Family Systems, Somatic Processing approach, and mindfulness approaches.
As a psychologist, my hope is to journey with you and use my skills to help facilitate the accomplishment of your therapy goals. I find great pleasure in hearing clients comment on how helpful counseling has been to them and how much they wish they had accessed the services earlier. Please come and give it a try!
