Hello! I'm a licensed mental health counselor with 17 years of experience. I would love the opportunity to help you with your concerns.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York
I am trained in traditional CBT as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD. One must change the thought to change the behavior.
I worked in a Partial Hospitalization Program for 3 years using DBT for group and individual therapy. I call myself DBT "informed" because I have not completed formal training but I am competent in delivering the basic concepts.
This comes from my extensive experience in human services and non-profit. I believe you must meet people where they are at. You must meet basic needs before any other.
I am trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and working towards becoming a registered provider. CPT has been featured on NPR'S "This American Life: Ten Sessions." It is a cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients learn how to modify and challenge unhelpful beliefs related to trauma. It has shown to show reduction in PTSD symptoms. It involves homework assignments and a commitment to active participation in therapy. This is not a body based trauma therapy.
