The Healing Relationship

“In the space between words, an awakened heart orchestrates the symphony of healing within the sacred space of the therapeutic relationship.”

"In the pursuit of wellness, one finds not only the harmony of body and mind but also the symphony of a fulfilled life." - John Smithson

Therapy with
Dr. Iektje van Bolhuis, Licensed Psychologist

If you need help or are looking to make positive changes in your life or your relationship, you have come to the right place! I work with adults, teens, and couples who are struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, life transitions, chronic pain and illness, trauma, and with people who would just like to get along better with others and feel happier in their life. Healing in therapy occurs within the safety of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client. Within this relationship, only your needs and your healing matter. For therapy to be effective, a good fit between therapist and client is essential. Therefore, I approach therapy as a highly collaborative process. It is like we are going on a road trip in your car, where you are in the driver’s seat and pick the destination. I am in the passenger seat next to you, helping you navigate and find the best route to reach your destination of choice: your therapy goals. I am looking forward to our journey together!

    How can I determine if seeking counseling is the right choice for me?

    Persistent Emotional Distress:

    If you are grappling with persistent emotional distress—such as anxiety, depression, overwhelming stress, anger, or grief—that profoundly affects your daily life, relationships, or overall well-being, it may be an indicator that seeking counseling could prove beneficial. When your emotions become challenging to handle on your own, a professional therapist can assist you in crafting effective coping strategies and offering valuable support.

    Impairment in Daily Functioning:

    Assess whether your emotional or mental health issues are impeding your capacity to perform effectively in various life domains. This could encompass challenges at work or school, strained interpersonal relationships, or a noticeable deterioration in your overall life satisfaction. If these issues are obstructing your personal or professional development, seeking counseling can empower you to regain control.

    Aspiration for Personal Growth and Development: At times, you may harbor a yearning for personal growth, self-exploration, or enhancements in specific facets of your life. Counseling stands as a valuable resource for those seeking to augment self-awareness, cultivate healthier coping strategies, foster improved relationships, or pursue personal objectives. If you possess a proactive outlook towards self-improvement, counseling can offer valuable guidance and support on this transformative journey.
