Psychotherapy is a proven technique for learning to manage and overcome anxiety. After your initial consultation and learning about your concerns and challenges, we will work together to develop a treatment plan. I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and other modalities to successfully treat anxiety.
Are you feeling down, tired, and overall lacking zest for life? Perhaps you are depressed.I believe a strong, empathic and trusting therapeutic relationship can create the right conditions for my clients to access their strengths and begin healing at their own pace.
CBT promotes change through learning to modify dysfunctional thinking patterns. Clients explore patterns of thinking and beliefs that lead to self-destructive behaviors. Once an individual understands the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, the individual is able to modify or change existing patterns of thinking to cope with stressors in a more positive manner. This treatment approach focuses on automatic thoughts, schemas, assumptions, beliefs.
DBT is a scientifically researched, evidence-based therapeutic treatment for individuals struggling with inner conflict, stormy relationships, impulsive and intentional self-harming acts, and other concerns. DBT helps people with these problems regain control of their lives.
Mindfulness therapy can help anyone, especially those who are new to the practice of mindfulness. It can help people with mental health issues like depression, addiction, anxiety, and other mental conditions. It can also help you if you have physical problems that are causing or caused by your mental health issues.
