What is Therapy?
Have you ever felt lonely? overwhelmed? desperate? These are very hard emotions to shoulder even once, let alone on a regular basis, and no one should have to bear them without help. Therapy is the avenue whereby you can safely explore your emotions and relationships with a skilled professional who will enable you to discover and rediscover your own strengths and joy more quickly and thoroughly internally and in relationships. Though the road may be daunting, you do not have to brave it alone. Let a therapist help.
Some of the experiences you may be having that are treated in therapy include:
Low Self Esteem
Racing Thoughts (difficulty falling asleep or while awake due to thoughts racing)
Anger or Aggression
Sexual, Physical, or Emotional Abuse
Human beings are complicated and no one therapy is a good fit for all people at all times. The successful art of therapy is deciphering the timing and intervention that best fits you, your life, and the world around you. In my practice, I will work hard to find the approach that best serves you, which may be any of the following: Psychodynamic, Attachment-oriented, Relational, Mindfulness, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotionally Focused approaches. The interventions I utilize often include dialogue, interpretation, cognitive reframing, exploration of thoughts and feelings, awareness exercises, self-monitoring, journal keeping, and reading and all work to enhance insight and integration. I may refer you to speak with a psychiatrist, a primary care provider, or other health care provider along with my own services. You have the right to decline any referral without any sort of penalty.
