Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Silver Spring, MD
I am specialized in treating anxiety disorder. I use CBT, mindfulness, and ERP when I work with clients. My goal is to help clients tolerance feeling of anxiousness and overcome their anxiety or distress.
Do you tend to devalue yourself? Do you judge yourself when you cannot meet up your expectations? Do you have self-doubt when you make a decision? If you can relate to one of above statements, you may experience low self-esteem. However, it can change as I am specialized in supporting clients with low self-esteem. I provide a safe space to help clients let go of the critical voice and cultivate self-compassion to themselves.
I use a strengths-based approach to treat clients with trauma history. I help clients focus on their strengths, adaptability, and resilience.
I use CBT to help clients challenge their distorted thinking patterns, maladaptive behaviors, and emotions. My style is structured, but also flexible. This approach is ideal for clients who are motivated to take an action to alter their unhelpful thinking patterns.
I make mindfulness very approachable as I believe mindfulness can be delivered by a variety of forms, such as mindful walking or mindful movement, so you don’t have to sit on the cushion all day to practice mindfulness. By practicing mindfulness, you will be able to develop a better understanding to self and other people, increase ability to accepting circumstances without judgments, and bring healing into your life.
I was trained to treat clients with trauma history and I use a strengths-based approach when I work with clients. I help clients recognize and understand the impact of traumatized event and I also support clients to unlock the traumatized experiences, so that they can develop coping skills to manage the triggers.
