ACT offers a clear structure for identifying areas in our lives that are not heading in the direction we would like. In session we can incorporate the full structure of ACT or use hints of it to help bring acceptance to situations and a desired action plan.
Much of our suffering comes from the inner language we use with ourselves. CBT can help us identify how we talk to ourselves and look at new ways to interpret situations, ourselves, and others.
NVC is a helpful base to allow us to identify feelings and needs. THIS increased awareness can benefit our relationships with ourselves, our day to day relationships, and our views of society in general.
I am an avid learner so my techniques incorporate all of what I've experienced in my life, studied, read, and witnessed in others. My base theory is Adlerian therapy and I use instinct and your feedback to bring in techniques to benefit you. I incorporate aspects of strength based, CBT, ACT, IFS parts work, polyvagal nervous system, and mindfulness with most of my clients. I offer acceptance, non-judgment, compassion, humor, imagination, and creativity.
Anxiety can appear in our lives as self-doubt, over focus on others, anger, indecision, and difficulty enjoying quiet time. We can find relief by learning to tune into ourselves with compassion and acceptance. From this mindset we can discover our true desires.
Depression can appear in our lives as self-criticism, low hope/motivation, denial of circumstances, and difficulty with self-care. We can find relief by learning to tune into ourselves with compassion and acceptance. From this mindset we can uncover the path forward.
Low self-esteem can appear in our lives as not prioritizing out needs, self-blame, overreliance on others, and difficulty moving forward in life. We can cultivate inner strength, worth, and confidence. From this mindset we can let go of old beliefs to make room for a new view of yourself, others, and the world.
It is exhausting when we over focus on others and under focus on ourselves. We can learn to tune into ourselves and make time for ourselves. From a strong base of self-care we can continue to follow our passion of being of service to others.
It is difficult to watch a loved one suffer and we can end up self-sacrificing to care for them. We can find relief by learning to focus on what we can control and identifying what needs we have in the relationship. From here we can set clear boundaries and hold them leading us to relief from codependency.
