Hope Risher, MS, LPC

I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become. ~Carl Jung



It takes an incredible amount of courage to realize and decide to positively change your life, and even more so to include someone in that intimate journey of fulfillment. Whether it be a small, specific area of your life, or a major change, it is my honor as a therapist to be included in your journey.

My therapy style is the humanistic approach to therapy, which provides positive support and objective reflections while the client explores what they want in therapy – YOU are the expert of your life. I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Acceptance and Commitment Therapy focuses on identifying values we hold dear in our lives and making concrete efforts to work towards those values. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps us understand our thought patterns that may be blocking our path towards positive change, and how to alter them to serve our journey.

I specialize in eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Music with a Psychology minor from Oklahoma City University, and a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas.

Additional Training:

2023: Discernment Counseling Training: Discernment counseling is a specialized form of counseling that aims to help couples gain clarity and confidence in their decision-making process when they are considering divorce but are not completely sure whether to pursue it.

Happy Client

Jan Shope has helped me in so many areas of my life. She has helped me to grow as a person and discover happiness, joy, and faith in my life, when I thought I wouldn’t have any. She has helped me to find the tools within myself that I didn’t know I had to overcome addiction, depression, anxiety, self blame and guilt. She has helped me to have confidence that is still growing. She also encourages my creative expression through art and writing to relieve the stress I have been feeling in my life. She is an extremely gifted, empathetic, and wise counselor who is phenomenal at what she does.
