Licensed Professional Counselor in Wheatridge, CO
I am a licensed addictions counselor and have worked inpatient facilities for the past decade. I am also in recovery from addiction.
Working with substance use disorders for the past decade the two go hand and hand. Recognizing how experiences from childhood have resulted in maladaptive coping mechanisms, negative core beliefs, and the process of healing and replacing with healthy boundaries, effective communication, changed thought processes, resulting in increased self-esteem and self-worth.
Working with people on embracing their highest self and working towards incorporating positive healthy behaviors and changing thought processes to assist in this growth process.
Helping people learn to structure their lives, recognize that their brains function a little differently than others, and how to maximize and reward these processes and best times to engage in activities that may cause distress, lack of interest or motivation.
I've worked in substance use disorder treatment for over a decade. This was a method I often used as often it was a brief stay.
I am a licensed addictions counselor this is a large part of our training and modalities used to determine readiness to change.
I believe in changing thought processes to challenge the cognitive distortions that are contributing to your distress.
Aligning the parts of ourselves with loving, compassion, and acceptance of self.
There is no one therapy that works for all. I use a myriad of modalities such as DBT, Solution focused, Existential, Narrative, ACT, and coaching are some of the orientations used.
