Many of us struggle with our self-esteem. We often have negative self talk and see ourselves as imperfect. I believe that most healing starts with forgiving and accepting yourself as a perfectly imperfect human being. You are worthy of love, respect and care just as you are, right now. My clients have benefitted from my ability to help them make peace with their inner self. I create a calm, relaxed environment where they can be safe to express themselves honestly.
Throughout my education, I have focused on domestic violence and it's impact. I have dedicated a majority of my education researching and understanding the complexities of intimate partner abuse and its effects, as well as how to help victims become survivors. In order to help victims of abuse, it is important that we create a safe and nonjudgmental environment for them so they can feel comfortable in opening up about their situation.
I am dedicated to helping my clients find effective strategies to overcome them. Whether it's difficulty with organization, time management, or focus, I work with my clients to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs. I use evidence-based techniques to help my clients achieve their goals. If you're looking for compassionate, non-judgmental support to help you manage your ADHD, you've come to the right place.
Throughout my career, I have successfully supported trauma survivors, domestic abuse victims, veterans, and foster children in their healing journey. I believe creating a safe environment for individuals to recover and giving them the right tools is crucial in the healing process. That's why I utilize evidence-based approaches to achieve the best outcome and do my best to create a warm and nonjudgmental environment.
Since then, CBT has become a popular treatment for many mental health conditions, including anxiety disorders and depression. The goal of CBT is to change negative thinking patterns into more positive ones and to replace irrational beliefs with more rational ones. Studies have shown that CBT is effective in treating many mental health conditions and aims to help people change their patterns of thinking and behaving.
Narrative therapy is effective at helping clients who have experienced trauma. Mild traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a condition that affects people who have been exposed to a severe or life-threatening event. Narrative therapy helps clients to process their experiences and work through the trauma they've faced. It uses storytelling as a way to heal, which allows the client to use their own voice and create meaning from their experience.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is effective at helping people with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. The therapy encourages the client to accept their painful thoughts and feelings instead of trying to change them. It also teaches the client how to commit to valued goals by focusing on what they are able to do instead of what they cannot do.
I help women navigate life's challenges through active listening, empathy, and evidence-based techniques. Together, we identify goals and develop strategies to overcome obstacles such as relationship issues and healing from trauma. My mission is to help women feel empowered, confident, and fulfilled in all aspects of life. I am passionate about creating a safe and supportive environment where my clients can freely express themselves without judgment.
Goal-oriented approach centered on finding solutions. It concentrates on clients' strengths and resources, exploring present and future solutions rather than ruminating on past hurt. This method encourages clients to articulate their desired outcomes, enabling therapists to collaboratively identify and amplify existing strengths.It's a forward-focused, pragmatic approach that emphasizes small, achievable steps toward positive change.
