Healing Body, Mind, And Spirit!
I'm glad you're here. Everyone deserves the gift of therapy. You deserve to make sense of the things in your life that are not making sense. Whatever your struggles, let's work together to help you feel more balanced and more engaged in your life.
My approach to therapy is client-centered: I believe clients are the experts on their lives and determine the direction and depth of therapy. I employ an Integrative approaches from multiple approaches to help clients identify strengths and to develop treatment plans that accomplish their goals. Some clients may find they need short-term therapy. In these situations, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) may be used. SFBT strategies help clients to set goals and visualize what areas may be preventing them from moving forward in a current situation.
Others may find they need more in-depth guidance, in these instances Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and /or (ACT) Acceptance Commitment Therapy may be used in our work together.
Through the use of (CBT), clients replace negative or dysfunctional thoughts and behaviors and replace them with more realistic positive thoughts and behaviors. Clients may find through applying CBT practices that a change in thinking can lead to a change in behaviors.
Applying (EMDR), clients begin the process of healing traumatic memories while building a more positive self-concept with self and others.
(DBT) may be applied when a client feels they need help with emotional control and within their relationships.
(ACT) Acceptance Commitment Therapy, clients learn to accept their current circumstances and/or difficulties in a mindful and accepting way that builds resiliency and promotes mindful approach to daily life.
Outside of my work as a therapist, I am working to become a Trauma Conscious Yoga Teacher (TCY) and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). I enjoy spending time with my husband and family. I also enjoy reading, biking, practicing yoga, and traveling to new places learning about different cultures.
