Emotionally Focused Therapy or (EFT) acknowledges the power of leaning into and naming emotions while teaching skills to help emotional expression feel less overwhelming.
Interpersonal Process Therapy or IPT uses the therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for change.
Person-Centered Therapy maintains that clients have an innate "proclivity toward growth and fulfillment" that's activated when the therapist demonstrates unconditional positive regard, genuineness, and empathic understanding.
Depression is painful, numbing, and pervasive. It casts a cloud on nearly every facet of a person’s life, and yet it can be difficult to recognize. If you feel sad most days, lack excitement about things that once brought you joy, or feel tired, and foggy, you’re likely depressed. I’ve found that depression can be a teacher as well as a thief. It can illuminate what’s not working while unfortunately keeping you stuck in place. My approach to therapy is to make space for both insight and change.
Anxiety is #$%*&$# exhausting. It means well. It’s trying to keep you safe. Unfortunately it’s an alarm that trips easily (where there’s smoke there’s not always fire), and when it does you may want to run away or stay frozen in place. This is how anxiety prevents a person from learning what they’re capable of, what’s possible, and the liberation of letting go. If you relate and you’d like to feel more courageous and peaceful, please reach out to me. I understand anxiety, and I’d love to help.
Addiction hijacks the mind. It’s also influenced by genetics and early life experiences. I start here because there’s often so much shame when it comes to talking about addiction. If you or a loved one are struggling with substances or behavioral addictions, I have a lot of knowledge and experience in this area. You can reach out to me for a consultation, an assessment, treatment recommendations, or therapy. I’ll end on this note: People recover from addiction every day. I believe you can too.
