My Approach to Helping
My goal is to help individuals lead a more healthy productive life. Therapy can help alleviate the symptoms associated with trauma, divorce, anxiety, and depression. Allowing you a safe place to discuss issues is vital in the healing process. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to provide individuals insight on how to change their reactions to events and people in their life.
Do you have toxic people in your life? Do you wish you could simply walk away from them? Giving you permission to not be used, to implement self-care, and to incorporate healthy boundaries is very important. Having a healthy self-worth is not selfish; it is vital for a healthy state of mind. Many people have difficulty building healthy boundaries and enforcing them. Therapy can help you know what your boundaries are and how to ensure you keep them in tact.
There is no set timeframe for therapy. Each person is different, and it truly depends on what there is to work on. There are goals that we can set together, and it will take work, but I am here to help you learn to be the best you and have a more positive view of your life. Therapy does not have to be a scary process. I provide an open environment where you can voice your thoughts and feelings and where we can process any issues you present with. I have a direct, open approach, and I welcome your honest feedback.
