My Approach to Helping
I love helping people find freedom from fear and worry! I recognize my clients' strengths, desires and values. They experience: respect, acceptance, wisdom, humor and energy! For 6 years I've helped clients address the depression, anxiety, conflict, parental heartache and substance abuse that are associated with work stress. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, boundaries exercises and and understanding of their family of origin, I help my clients advocate for themselves at work and home, let go of negative thinking and grow in emotional wealth. With proven exposure techniques, I help clients re-train their brains' warning systems to decrease panic and fear. I prefer to use real world language, not jargon, and my clients appreciate that our relationship feels like a team, not a therapist lecturing them. Positive psychology is a firm foundation and base that helps my clients worry less, improve relationships and increase their internal motivation.
