During our first meeting, I'll let you talk about the things that are getting in the way of you being your best self. We will talk about your expectations for therapy and things you want to work on. Moving forward beyond our first meeting, we will talk about things happening presently in your life day to day that are stress inducing or upsetting. We will work together to connect things that happened in the past to your ability to handle things in the present and work through empirically based strategies to reduce distress. We will discuss and practice coping skills in session, leaving you with tangible strategies to use for mood regulation between sessions.
CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and is the industry standard for treating many psychological concerns. I have been trained by the Beck Institute in implementing empirically validated techniques to help you change negative thought patterns to more productive ones. I use grief and loss techniques to help people recognize that grief is much more than the loss of a person to death, it is often experienced during any significant life change - good or bad. I utilize these techniques to help people understand and move forward from many different kinds of losses.
