Hello, I'm Cheryl Carr!! Licensed Clinical Social Worker and licensed Registered Nurse. I work with anyone who lives in the state of NY.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Hamburg, NY
I have a passion and desire to assist others. Therapist experience burnout from being care givers to their clients, patients & to their own family members. Also, the expectations put on them or they put on themselves. They often wonder where do I fit in & who takes care of me? How do I continue to keep giving, when my reserves are being depleted or empty. I assist therapist/providers with finding that balance amongst their family, career, relationships and most importantly for themselves.
My training, experience and overall belief is that our mind, body and spirit are all connected. When any of those are out of alignment, we feel out of balance, stressed, anxious, or depressed. Also, our beliefs shape our thoughts and can trigger our responses. We're not made of separate components. We are all one and connected. I assist you with restoring, regaining or being that person you truly are.
Most common health issue and complaint is feeling stressed or anxious. We have all felt that experience. We all know there is healthy stress or anxious feelings. However when there are too many stressors or events that occur, our mind, body and spirit feel disconnected. When that occurs, we need strategies to feel connected or aligned again. I have experience assisting you with learning and employing those strategies to have a calmer and balanced life so you can enjoy things again.
As humans, we store memories, experience and emotions on a cellular level. Which means, it’s not “all in your head”; rather, our bodies hold information as well. Somatic approaches are used to engage the relationship between mind, body, brain, and behaviors. I'll use strategies and techniques to help calm your nervous system, and create more ease in your healing process. The mind-body techniques aid in the release of pent-up tension that’s weighing on your emotional and physical well-being.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most common treatment methods used by many. CBT focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. Our thoughts triggers responses and behaviors. You'll learn how to change negative patterns with skills to reduce anxiety, stress or other distressing emotions. This leads to a calmer, balanced and peaceful sense of self and well being.
The goal of holistic therapy is to balance all the different aspects of the person, so the entire person is addressed during therapy and not just one aspect of ourselves. It is the integration of the mind, body and spirit. You'll gain understanding and knowledge of how our mental health can affect our physical health and overall sense of well being. You'll learn techniques to decrease the tension, anxiety, and stress and aid you in creating a more balanced state of mind, body and spirit.
