If you are suffering with anxiety or depression we would discuss if using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Protocols would be a good fit for you. CBT is different than a therapy session where you just come in and vent about your problems. The following explanation is from the Beck Institute, “Cognitive behavior therapy is one of the few forms of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical trials for many different disorders. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more limited in duration, and more problem-solving oriented. In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors”. You can also check out the CBT video under Recommended Resources-Videos for some general information on CBT.
I help people move forward by providing strategies and coping skills to make progress towards their goals, whether to worry less, improve mood, or have more work/life balance. I can help you to improve the quality of your relationships, move you towards participating in activities that you may have given up, or maybe pursue goals that you feel are unattainable due to emotions taking over. You likely already have the answers within you, you just need someone to help you to discover your strengths and help you to see you situation from a different perspective.
I typically work with adults experiencing symptoms of anxiety including worry that feels uncontrollable, panic attacks, avoiding situations or people due to fear, sense of overwhelm and unable to move forward, and the resulting isolation and depression that follow.
