Taking the first step to get help is not easy, but it shows an individual’s strength and your innate ability and will to survive and progress.
The purpose of most therapies is to heal or alleviate, symptoms of a concerning issue or condition. However, it is so important to support and guide clients to find their true and authentic lives is the primary goal of therapy intervention. As a clinician, I practice from a cognitive-behavioral approach, which is aimed to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. I work with the client to develop an understanding that allows for healing and growth.
I strive to facilitate a safe atmosphere that is warm, accepting, and judgement free, where we work together to create a space to explore thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams. I take a collaborative, strengths-focused approach to therapy.
