Therapy is not one-size-fit-all. I use an individualized approach to therapy to help clients meet their treatment goals. All techniques utilized are evidence based, grounded in research, to assure that clients obtain the best possible results. Treatment is tailored to each client and their individual needs.
Substance use is common and often parallels other concerns. To stop using/drinking without support is particularly challenging. I help individuals find why they use and develop an achievable path to regain control over their lives. I have worked with individuals seeking to reduce their drug/alcohol intake or quit entirely in many settings, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation centers.
I have worked with individuals struggling with depression in a number of settings. I often notice that these clients desire to return to a happier, lighter mental framework. Often, depression feels like a snowball rolling down a hill and it can be hard to even know where to start to feel better. I approach this concern with creating small achievable goals and through discussions about one's values, experiences, and desires.
We all experience stress. However, when someone does not have the right tools to manage it, stress can lead to a number of concerns such as anxiety and depression. When working with individuals experiencing stress, I find it important to help them develop cognitive and behavioral techniques to mitigate the factors and outcomes.
