Do you want to improve your quality of life? Are symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression getting in your way? Do you feel trapped in an unhealthy or abusive relationship? Are you overwhelmed, burnt out, or juggling multiple roles? Counseling can support you through these challenges!
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a structured therapeutic approach with the emphasis of psychotherapy on the present and focuses on teaching skills to change unhealthy thinking and behaviors. CBT is an evidence-based and highly effective approach to counseling.
Mindfulness and Acceptance based approaches to counseling can also be very effective. I infuse these elements into my practice, including relaxation training, breathing exercises, visualization, and accepting or acknowledging the difficult aspects of our lives without judgement. With Mindfulness you can learn to pay attention to thoughts and feelings with acceptance and non-judgement.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a set of skills that are focused on distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. These skills also incorporate a mindfulness component.
Working with survivors of abusive relationships and domestic violence including verbal, emotional, and psychological abuse is one of my specialties. I am experienced in supporting individuals whose partners are exhibiting manipulative and controlling behaviors.
Social Anxiety is one of my specialties and I really enjoy seeing the progress that CBT skills can make both cognitively and behaviorally. This is a type of anxiety that exposure therapy is very effective in treating.
Whether due to stressors, life changes, or feeling overwhelmed by everyday life, anxiety can crop up in our lives in many ways and for some it can become debilitating. CBT is very effective for the many different manifestations of anxiety. I'm also trained and experienced in exposure therapy which is one of the primary evidence based treatments for certain types of anxiety disorders. I especially enjoy working with individuals who experience Social Phobia and Generalized Anxiety.
