About my approach (style) to therapy:
Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in multiple states: Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Oregon. I have 13 years of counseling experience. My counseling style and approach is Holistic/Integrative which means I focus on the mind/body/spirit connection as all three components are equally important aspects of our lives. I offer a safe, non-judgmental environment with a client-centered and strengths-based approach and customized strategies to assist you in meeting treatment goals and transforming your life. Together, we will identify solutions and resources to empower you through the changes and outcomes you want to make – you are your best expert. I will guide you to the inner wisdom already available. I have extensive knowledge working with children and families, special needs, and behavioral therapy. That foundation has enabled me to gain skills which translate to being effective with almost every person. Afterall, we were all once children and many of those early childhood wounds are still very prevalent in our adult lives!
About my background and training:
I incorporate more traditional psychotherapy models and modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Empowerment Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Solution-Focused Therapy with integrative tools focusing on identifying and modifying self-defeating behaviors derived from negative core beliefs about ourselves. These negative core beliefs typically create anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. I utilize Behavior Therapy to formulate practical applications done outside our therapy session to create new coping strategies, positive behaviors, and skill building for a more enjoyable and peaceful life.
About my work:
I help people aged 18 to 55 find freedom from anxiety and depressive symptoms rooted in low self-esteem, negative self-talk, and intense self-doubt and perfectionism. I help my clients shift their self-image, overcome self-defeating behaviors, and learn tools to cope with stress, improve relationships, and confidently trust their intuition. I also help 18-55 year-olds struggling with symptoms of ADHD like anxiety, procrastination, overwhelm, and scattered focus move from feeling disorganized and depressed to a life where they feel empowered, competent, and witness daily improvement. Using integrated tools combining solution-focused, behavioral modifications, we work together to implement practical tools and structures to increase their confidence and allow them to create an efficient life.
