I am here to help you through life's difficulties while creating positive, life long changes for your mental health.
Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Fort Worth, TX
Supervised by Laura Wright, MS, LPC-S
I have worked with adolescents that are experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, self harm, eating disorders, academic and social issues, self esteem, grief and many more.
Anxiety can be overwhelming and affect our quality of life. I have worked with clients exhibiting many ranges of anxiety. I try to help my clients take small steps to overcoming their fear and anxiousness.
Many people seek out help when they are suffering a loss. I have worked with clients that have lost their parents, siblings, friends and other loved ones. I believe understanding and compassion are important when helping a person deal with grief.
I believe that our brain often tells us lies and then we behave accordingly. However, we are able to change our negative thoughts to positive ones which allows us to choose different feelings and behaviors. I use CBT to assist me in helping my clients.
The way we think and process information comes from our experiences. One of the most influential parts of our lives is the family system. Adolescents are often struggling to find themselves outside of their family which can cause stress and tension for everyone involved. It is my goal to help smoothly transition during these times.
In the school setting counselors are not able to work with students on a long term basis. I implemented SFBT to help my former students overcome issues they were experiencing. This treatment focuses on solutions rather than problems. It can help clients change by allowing them to think about want they want, rather than what is wrong.
