My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with young adults facing issues related to anxiety, self-esteem and the pressure to be perfect, depression, addiction, and trauma recovery. Whether you are feeling stuck in the past, living in the future, or feeling too anxious to participate in life, you can learn ways to properly cope with unpleasant life experiences and regulate emotions in the present. My practice revolves around identifying and changing self-sabotaging patterns, learning how to think and live differently, finding opportunities when breakdowns occur, and building resiliency.
My clinical specialities and areas of professional interest include anxiety, addiction, relationships, heartbreak, trauma recovery, and depression. I have worked with individuals and couples in a variety of settings throughout the years while remaining dedicated to maintaining standards of professional conduct and confidentiality.
More Info About My Practice
My integrative approach is straightforward, open, empathetic, and solution-focused. You hold the answers and are the expert in your own life; with therapeutic guidance and direction, you can learn the skills necessary to stop anxiety and negative thoughts regulating unwanted behavior and emotions. I use effective and scientifically based treatment methodologies tailored to your specific treatment plan. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) combined with mindfulness-based and solution-focused based therapies have proven to be most effective in my work. I look forward to working with you!
Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance
The client-therapist alliance is hugely important in facilitating positive movement and growth. It is my view that therapy is most successful when the client and therapist have a strong and trusting relationship. My approach is warm and somewhat unconventional, as I incorporate humor and metaphors and whatever I believe will be beneficial to your needs.
