Issues I Can Help You With
My Style of Therapy
My therapeutic approach is collaborative in nature. I view every therapeutic relationship as a collaboration, where together we process how your personal qualities, values, strengths can be an assistance to you. I strive to offer an environment that is nonjudgmental, trauma informed, relaxing, supportive and empathic to all. I provide interconnect psychoeducation, to also assist those to feel less shameful, grow insight and develop skills tailored to the individuals she is working with.
I utilize various evidence-based psychotherapy approaches that best suit the specific individual. I find that utilizing evidence based strategies from CBT can assist in alleviating symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, negative self-talk and schema’s you have towards yourself or how you perceive situations.
A Strength-Based Approach
Asking for help is a sign of strength and courage. Sometimes, having support can help us cope with trauma and stress. You already have the internal strengths, we will work together to identify your strengths and improve your coping.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Life can be challenging at times. The way we perceive these circumstances and the way we have learned to cope with these circumstances in the past, may not be the approach you want going forward. Sometimes, we may choose a strategy that will provide quick relief instead of lasting change.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is engaging and active through each therapy session. We will address your needs to identify and develop insight into your thoughts, behaviors and feelings. This will empower you to break the vicious cycles and negative outcomes. No two people respond to life’s challenges the same, we will work together to develop and improve your problem solving and coping strategies. The goal will be to improve your symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and emotional dysregulation.
