Beck PazdralCounselor, MA, D.Ed., LMHC
I use my 10+ years experience to approach our therapy relationship with respect, warmth, and curiosity to create a safe space for everyone.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a classic talk therapy technique that helps increase awareness of negative thinking in order to better handle challenging situations. In addition to helping those with mental health disorders (such as anxiety or depression), CBT is also helpful for anyone who is looking to learn how to manage stressful situations. Therapists that use CBT often have a structured program, which involves a set number of sessions. CBT is frequently paired with other treatments, such as medication, when necessary. Think this approach may be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s CBT experts today.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Rather than viewing people as inherently flawed with problematic behaviors and thoughts that require treatment, person-centered therapy identifies that each person has the capacity for personal growth and change. With a person-centered approach there is recognition with the ability to trust the human potential and doing this with empathy and unconditional positive regard will foster change.
If you find yourself slashing your tires or just getting a lot of flats in your personal life, it might be time to make some changes. And sometimes that requires some guidance, introspection and support that an authentic, warm and professional therapy space can offer. As a licensed psychologist I work with adults and those 55+, and tend to specialize Mood disorders, Life transitions, Acute Stressors, Grief and losses, Impact of Chronic Health Conditions, Caregiver Stress, among others.
