My Approach to Helping
Are you facing challenges in your life and finding it difficult to overcome worry, feelings of depression, or overwhelming anxiety? Do you face identity challenges that impact how you see yourself in the context of the rest of the world or cause you to feel insecure? Are you struggling with the residual effects of past traumatic experiences? If you answered yes to any of these questions are you finding that it hasn’t been as simple as “pulling yourself together” when dealing with associated feelings and emotions? If so, the upswing is that counseling can help. Seeking help is the first important step in a process that I am confident will bring you closer to alleviating symptoms and increasing your ability to cope with stress-inducing circumstances in your life.
I draw from Solutions-Focused Therapy (SFT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) with a focus on identifying negative thoughts, the impact they play on emotions and that lead to negative behaviors.
My mindfulness-based, client-centered approach with a focus on strengths, goals, and current needs will aid you in developing coping skills that will allow you to move from problematic emotions and unhealthy habits to healing.
I have a non-judgmental, compassionate, supportive, and reflective style. My aim is to help you figure out the path that’s right for you to begin the process of change. With that said seeking help is the first step in your courageous journey towards improving thoughts, emotional stability, actions and greater wellbeing.
I’m here to listen and I look forward to working with you.
