My Approach to Helping
Dr. Tasha Vitales is a postdoctoral fellow who received her Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Walden University. Dr Vitales' ideal clients are teens and young adults with anxiety, depression, ADHD, adjustment disorders, and challenges related to self-esteem and self-confidence.
Dr. Vitales customizes her approach to suit the individual needs and meet her clients where they are, focusing on helping them find solutions using cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, psychodynamic, strength-based, and person-centered approaches while establishing a trusting therapeutic space. Her approach includes identifying treatment goals, increasing coping skills, and addressing barriers to progress.
Dr. Vitales has experienced her own hardship before getting to where she is. She battled through homelessness and poverty, was raised by a single parent, and had an absent father that struggled with substance abuse, yet she was able to thrive and overcome these obstacles and become a Doctor of Psychology. She is now in a position to give some of her wisdom to others, equipped to help clients to overcome their own challenges both through her experience and resilience and her expert technical training.
No topic is off limits with Dr. Vitales, she allows clients to feel comfortable enough to express themselves freely and help them to live their best life.
