I am a Licensed Professional Counselor offering mental health services via telehealth to clients in Virginia, North Carolina and New Mexico.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Suffolk, VA
Are you anxious most days and nearly all day? Do you feel anxious even when you can’t identify the source of your anxiety? Do you avoid situations that cause anxiety to the degree that it stops you from meeting important obligations? Research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.
Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self? I want you to know that you are not alone. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that it is possible to once again have hope for their lives. I understand the social stigmas that come with label of being depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.
I am trained in Exposure Response Prevention to assist clients overcome Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how he or she will feel and act in response. A person’s perception of an event if often based upon beliefs shaped by prior experience, assumptions, and styles of thinking that may alter distort their perception.
