My Approach to Helping
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Are you struggling with feeling uphappy and dissatisfied; overwhelmed by worry and stress? Is there something that is not right in your life? Therapy can offer a place for you explore your feelings and thoughts and gain a better understanding of yourself. Being your true, authentic self can lead to real joy to in life. Otherwise, it can drain us of our energy and rob us of the life we truly want. Therapy can support you in making the positive changes that can lead to a full and satisfying life.
My name is Kristin Carney and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I enjoy helping people learn about what is not working in their lives and help them to better understand what is getting in their way. My aim is to create a safe, caring environment where people feel comfortable to explore the parts of themselves that get in the way of allowing them to feel happy and satisfied. I have experience working with issues such as childhood trauma, parenting, grief and loss, and couples and family issues.
My approach to helping focuses on responsibility, choice, and awareness. I have found this offers the most potential for growth. I use a combination of supportive therapy along with cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice. People have told me that I am gentle and caring, yet kindly direct when necessary. With that, I ask questions, provide feedback and sometimes assign homework. I have found this to be very useful in sessions.
Who knows? Your life could be better or happier if you just change something....even if it's something small. :-)
Thank you again for considering me and I wish you well.
