Therapy isn't just for people with mental illness. Life is hard for all of us. Unexpected changes happen. We lose people. We get disconnected with who we truly are and what we believe in. Daily tasks become overwhelming. We stop taking care of ourselves.
Soon enough, we're just surviving life, instead of thriving in and savoring it.
Working with a therapist can help you attain true wellness: in your mind, body, and spirit.
The benefits of therapy are research-backed, and often profound when you personally experience them.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, helps people notice and change the thinking patterns that might be leading them to painful feelings. This isn't meant to minimize the fact that things are really hard right now. But sometimes, the way we think about situations and events can make us feel even worse. Together, we can find these thinking patterns and explore the idea of challenging them.
One of the most important principles in person-centered therapy is unconditional positive regard. This means that I see every person as a worthy human being, no matter what you've done or how you feel. I promise to always look at your strengths first, and I will never forget that you are already worthy just the way you are. I'm here to enhance your strengths - not to turn you into a completely different person.
Interpersonal therapy, or IPT, is a focused, time-limited therapy method. Like its name suggests, it focuses on helping you improve your interpersonal relationship. This is a great therapy approach for people who feel lonely or isolated. By getting more fulfilling relationships in your life, you may start feeling better. IPT is an evidence-based treatment for depression and other disorders.
Mindfulness has its origin in eastern religion, but the way it's used in therapy today has nothing to do with religious beliefs. To put it very simply, mindfulness is the practice of staying present with each moment, no matter how dreadful it may be. Research has proven that training your brain with mindfulness has countless benefits, from lowering stress and anxiety to improving your physical health.
Dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, was originally created to help people deal with the most intense and painful of emotions (like depression or suicidality). It teaches people skills to build healthy internal lives and to improve their relationships. One of the principles of DBT is that two seemingly opposing things can be true at the same time.
In all of my work with clients, I strive to be your partner in healing. I'm not here to tell you what to do or overwhelm you with unsolicited advice. You already have so much internal wisdom about your own wellness, and I'm here to help you unbury, and add to, that wisdom.
You work so hard for others. You deserve to make an investment into your wellness.
