My personality greatly influences my therapeutic approach, a well rounded and holistic approach. I walk alongside my clients and allow them to process at the pace that is most comfortable and beneficial to the specific individual and their goals. However, I also include therapeutic support with safe movement toward confronting re-occurring negative themes that pose as a barrier to therapeutic goals. By doing this, my clients are able to experience a sense of mental and emotional balance directly modeled in the therapeutic session. This in turn provides perspective and my clients are able to see how to apply balance in their everyday lives.
Determining goals of therapy is an important factor of therapy that should be established early in the therapeutic relationship. I allow my clients to give an overview of what they want to address in therapy through the use of intake questionnaire paperwork. The client and I are usually able to set a pretty good idea of what things are most important to focus on while discussing the questionnaire during the first session. I usually re-evaluate therapeutic goals with the client to ensure that we are still moving forward and are in sync with the initial goals set. Sometimes these goals change as we continue working together and other times they may need to be refined or re-addressed.
What I like the most about how flexible mental health can be is that I am able to walk alongside my clients in real time and provide support in ways that best suite my clients. I love how innovative, individualized and specific therapy can be in addition to being versatile.
Depression often causes people to feel sad, empty, or hopeless, and can cause a lack of interest in life. It can also affect a person's thinking patterns and physical health.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.
Adolescent mental health
Adolescent mental health focuses on adolescent-specific experiences including physical and cognitive development, social and environmental factors, sex, sexual identification and orientation, emotional processing, and substance use. Given the influence that parents/guardians have on adolescents, home life is a particularly important consideration.
Parenting issues involve those associated with the child-rearing process. These may include safety, discipline, nutrition, finances, childcare, school, household rules, chores, daily routines, social activities, and relationships with extended family members. Because child-rearing practices vary by culture, cultural norms must be considered.
Distress stems from a subjective perception of something being unwanted, undesirable, or detrimental to your wellbeing. Excessive stress significantly impairs mental and physical health and is associated with many diseases and conditions.
Self-esteem is the degree to which a person feels confident, valuable, and worthy of respect. Feeling low self-esteem can influence overall well-being and be linked to anxiety and/or depression.
Adoption & foster care
Adoption and foster care considerations include education on the process, integrating the new family, establishing household rules and boundaries, processing past trauma on behalf of the child, emotional health, and other adjustment procedures.
Familial relationships can be the source of stress and emotional pain, even in the healthiest of situations. Painful interactions can range from irritation to resentment and lead to feelings of guilt, disappointment, and anger.
Coping skills are tools and techniques one can learn, practice, and use to handle difficult emotions, decrease stress, and establish or maintain a sense of internal order.
