Clinical Social Worker in Golden Valley, MN
Through my 8 years of experience in dialectics behavior therapy, I have a large amount of exposure and experience in working with individuals that struggle with depression. I use behavioral techniques to assist in challenge depressive symptoms on a daily basis.
I have 8 years of experience working with individuals that have significant urges to harm themselves or are experiencing suicidal ideation. I think that recognition, honesty, openness, and having a supportive ally, are really important steps in beginning the path of challenging self harm urges and actions.
I have extensive experience and knowledge specifically with borderline personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, and avoidant personality disorder.
I appreciate DBT because it gives us direct tools we can use on a daily basis to challenge ineffective urges. I also love the mindfulness associated with DBT. I believe that the first step towards change is recognition of the barrier / problem.
Our thoughts are powerful. Recognizing the impact they can have on us and beginning to challenge those negative thought patterns can do wonders. I appreciate CBT because it brings mindfulness to negative thought patterns that may be happening everyday of our lives.
ACT allows us to take something that that causes us pain and suffering and flip it on its head. I love ACT because it gives us a tool that we can use, when maybe we feel like there are no other options. Changing our relationship with pain is the essence of ACT.
