Hi I’m Mallory. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, but it might help to think of me as someone who helps people change their lives.
Counselor in Redmond, WA
CBT is based on the idea that the way we think, feel, and behave are all interconnected. You will learn to identify your unhelpful ways of thinking and unhelpful behavior patterns so that you can change the way you feel. You can also expect to learn effective coping strategies for when life gets tough.
Negative life events can have a lasting impact, as our brains are not able to process them in a helpful way. This can have a direct impact on how we experience the world around us. EMDR therapy uses bilateral stimulation (side-to-side motion) which mimics what is naturally happening during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. The result of EMDR therapy is being able to process negative life experiences in a helpful way.
SFT relies on the principle that you are resilient and already possess some knowledge on how your life could be better. As your therapist, I will help you to explore hope for the future, so we can identify what steps to take to improve your life.
