My Approach to Helping

You are not alone. Life isn't turning the way you thought it would? You are not alone. Anxiety, depression, addiction: these words are heard often especially in modern times. How do you cope with constant thoughts? Are you unable to concentrate on work or school related obligations? How much difficulty do you have sustaining relationships with others? What is your level of frustration? These questions are not uncommon when facing struggles. You are not alone. Who is in your support system? Do you have room for another person to help you grow mentally? I could discuss all of my qualifications for being a mental health counselor, but I consider myself a person first who wants to help you deal with frustrations.

I understand how certain issues like addiction plague your daily life activities. I provide a safe and warm environment, honest feedback, and a judgment-free atmosphere where together we discuss challenges and how to overcome them safely.

I believe some people are frightened to go to therapy for various reasons such as not wanting to discuss their feelings, thinking they are paying someone to only listen to them when the person could go to a friendrelative and are unsure what will happen after seeing a mental health professional. I am here to help and support you in dealing with these frustrations. Some individuals are not ready to discuss their issues and that is okay. Talking to the people in your support system is encouraged but sometimes external assistance is necessary. Since therapy is a mutual relationship, we are working together to face these struggles. You are not alone.

More Info About My Practice

Since I am a pre-licensed mental health counselor, I am unable to take insurance. As a result, my costs are lower than many other individuals in the mental health profession.

Many methods are helpful in the therapeutic relationship, but I find cognitive-behavioral techniques most constructive because I believe people act (behavioral) based on how they think (cognitive). Mindfulness, guided meditation, and homework are used often to decrease worries and allow focus on a single topic.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Addiction is a mental health illness that can be treated if the person wants help. Between interning at an addiction-focused agency and working with both adolescents and adults, I have seen just how prevalent addiction is among various ages and the fact that different treatment help individuals of different backgrounds. Psycho-education, insight into the specific issues, and treatment modalities are useful in the therapeutic setting. Some of the most constructive questions asked are what are your triggers and coping skills in dealing with your unique struggles.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

What causes a person to be "on the fence" regarding attending therapy? The reasons can be plentiful for being uncertain for going to therapy. It is a common feeling to be uncertain about going to therapy and there is nothing wrong with being indecisive; the question I would ask though is what is causing the hesitation? Anything can be discussed with me. It is okay to have feelings. It is okay to be frightened of therapy and being unsure how it will help. Let's work together to bring more happiness into your life.
