My Approach to Helping

My approach to treatment helps you focus on what you can control and find a balance in your life through introspection, understanding, and patience. I am very passionate about my work and value the importance we all put into attaining happiness. I do not believe we should shoulder the weight of our struggles alone, we become better individuals by learning about ourselves through interactions with others.

I have received training in dialectical behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy and use these approaches to work with adolescents, teens, and adults in both individual and group formats experiencing emotional, behavioral, and addiction issues in their lives. My experience in residential treatment facilities has helped me have a patient and gentle approach to treatment. I believe a focus on taking life one step at a time and being mindful of how one's thoughts impacts their behaviors is vital to understanding ourselves.

My Therapy Focus

When working in the helping profession I often try to find unique takes on what "help me help you" means:

Helping someone is like visiting their house. It is hard to know what is inside from one glance. Within this structure, the homeowner knows where everything is stored away. They know if you have to jiggle the handle to the toilet to get it to work or if you have to slam the basement door hard because the hinges are old. Every home has it's quirks and is unique in their own way. All houses have a "standard" structure; roof, rooms, floors, doors, windows, etc. The way the resident furnishes it is very different.

In my experience with houses, I am confident enough to navigate my way around with time. I may or may not find what I am looking for as fast as someone living in the house, but I'll get there. The same goes when working towards resolving a problem. A lot of problems "look" the same on the outside. When you open the door it is a different story. I'll never come over unannounced, I only show up when invited. Same goes with helping anyone...I can't change anyone besides myself. It is not something to be forced on another. Show me what you want to show. Clean up before I come or leave it as is. All I ask is: give me a tour so I know where everything is. You are the expert about yourself. Help me by showing the quirks, and we will get to it faster.
