Just as a hammer doesn't work for every repair, one theoretical approach may not work for every situation. I utilize aspects of Solution Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Transactional Analysis, and Mindfulness when appropriate, to more effectively help you make lasting change.
I've been a CBT therapist for 15 years. I believe we unintentionally create our own misery in the way we interpret the world in childhood. We take those beliefs into adulthood and don't have the awareness to realize our original thinking may have been faulty. I work to identify the ways you view the world that cause pain instead of happiness and help you adapt healthier thinking patterns.
Confidence issues often go hand in hand with my other areas of specialization: anxiety, depression, and OCD. These issues can make you feel that you're flawed. I work with you to help you develop compassion for yourself and to measure your worth in a more accurate and realistic way.
For the past 5 years I've focused on anxiety disorders. A large part of PTSD treatment is teaching the brain how to know when it's safe. The trauma that causes PTSD makes the ability to determine safety difficult. I help you learn to slow your brain down so you can rationally assess the world around you.
I sought additional training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) therapy for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. While Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the standard for treating OCD, traditional talk therapy doesn't work. Someone with OCD can understand their thoughts logically don't make sense but that doesn't stop the obsessions. ERP along CBT works!
I added anxiety as a specialty about 5 years ago and have become skilled at helping those with anxiety. I understand the way an anxious mind works and have tools and techniques that can help you change your thinking patterns so you're less anxious.
Not everyone likes working with depressed people. I am skilled at identifying each persons individual causes of depression. I help them to recognize the way their brain can distort thinking so they can learn to think in more realistic and accurate ways that reduces or eliminates depression.
