Hi, I'm Michele. I work with adults and adolescents to guide you through life's ups and downs. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Arlington, TX
I help couples address recurring conflicts, feelings of disconnection, an affair, issues related to sex, or difficulties due to external stressors. I help couples on improving emotional attachment, focus on the positive aspects of the relationship, and focus on self-reflection rather than blame.
I educate clients on Dialectical Behavior life skills. DBT is helpful to prevent self-harming behavior, and suicidal ideation, working through conflict, improving listening skills, and increasing self-esteem. I help clients define problems and options and how to take action guided by goals and values.
I educate clients on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) skills to learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. I help clients identify automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to depression and anxiety and replace them with positive, realistic thoughts. This helps clients to change inaccurate distorted thinking patterns, emotional responses, and behaviors.
