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 with a skilled professional who will enable you to discover and rediscover your own strengths and joy more quickly and thoroughly. 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
- Postpartum Difficulties
- Relationship Stress
- Racing Thoughts (difficulty falling asleep or while awake due to thoughts racing)
- Anger or Aggression
- Suicidal Ideation
- Cutting/Self Harm
- Eating Disorders
- Domestic violence
- 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 do the best to find the approach that best serves you, which could be any of the following: Interpersonal Neurobiology, Psychodynamic Therapies, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and Attachment Theories. The interventions I utilize often include dialogue, interpretation, cognitive reframing, exploration of thoughts and feelings, awareness exercises, self-monitoring, journal keeping, and reading. 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.
