Clinical Psychologist in Bonne Terre, MO
Anxiety can be such a debilitating problem for so many people. I enjoy helping clients cope with their anxiety by working through what skills would be beneficial for their lives.
I have worked with many clients who suffer from various degrees of depression. Every client is different when it comes to their depression, however depression can usually be well defined by their symptoms, duration, and degree of social support. I work with clients on how to identify what works for them and what does not.
I have had many years assessing and treating clients with personality disorders. I often give presentations on the differences and how to treat them through evidenced based methods.
I love using CBT to help clients see how their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are connected. Clients often learn to open up about how distorted thinking can affect their lives. They learn how to improve cognitive flexibility and apply the CBT core concepts to make major changes in their lives.
There are so many reasons a person may need to complete psychological testing. Psychological testing allows me to take a deep dive into a person’s psychological functioning. We have decades of research to support the use of different tests to help make good clinical treatment decisions. I specialize in conducting Personality Testing, Diagnostic Clarification, Emotional Support Animal Evaluation, Forensic Evaluations, and Risk Assessments.
I have found that DBT can be used in treatment plans for a plethora of psychological problems. This includes stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and of course personality disorders. I enjoy helping clients learn and apply the four components of DBT into their lives, which include Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. DBT gives clients a ton of tools to add to their toolbox.
