My Approach to Helping
The fact that you a here on GoodTherapy reading this right now means something. It means you have taken the first step toward improving your life situation... and that’s great!
It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, and it's okay to admit that you need a professional to help you figure things out - someone who can teach you the skills to handle the inevitable challenges of life. And let’s face it, today’s world is pretty stressful!
You might be feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, or stuck in old patterns that prevent you from moving forward. First of all, let me just say there’s nothing wrong with YOU at your core. You see, most of us were never taught the right SKILLS to master our responses to stress, challenges and adversity.
There is a better way. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to help you learn how to THRIVE in today’s world. Thrive? Yes, Thrive! It’s all about recognizing the patterns that keep you stuck, and practicing the new responses - thoughts, emotions and habits - that empower you and move you forward.
