Therapy can be the start to a wonderful path to a more fulfilling life. It’s a safe and welcoming place where you can trust that you are being cared for and guided towards a happier you. I believe that we are all naturally resilient and with the right support and tools, healing can take place. I incorporate mindfulness, relaxation training, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to assist my clients. CBT is a research-based type of therapy that is used to treat a variety of concerns including: anxiety, depression, and ADHD. The skills that are learned with CBT last a lifetime. It is an interactive, engaging process and many clients find that it is empowering. CBT teaches us the relationship between our thinking, feeling, and behaviors and gives us the tools to break unhealthy cycles and rewrite new, healthier, ways of thinking about our world. There is also research on mindfulness and ADHD and relaxation training for ADHD as well as others. Whenever possible, I incorporate current research into my practice to give my clients the best tools possible.
One of the most important aspects of the therapeutic process is to feel comfortable with your therapist. It’s important to have a good relationship with him/her. My goal as a therapist is to actively listen to you, empathize, and provide the gentle care and support that you deserve to feel better.
