My utilize some of the following therapeutic techniques, but tailor your treatment to your needs.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Through our conversation I help you recognize your negative thoughts and assist you with developing the insight to change your negative thought patterns.
With techniques such as meditation and yoga, I will help you become more connected with your present experiences. Instead of worrying about what has happened in the past or what will happen in the future. You learn to focus on where you are in life right now. Learning to appreciate the here and now can help you increase your self-esteem and happiness in what you have. You become free from “could have” or “should have” and begin to think “I am”.
I love using narrative therapy with people that want to re-write their story. Basically that’s what it is. Our therapy sessions will lead you to re-write the negative stories that others have been telling you all your life. How exciting is it that! You can change the way you have viewed your life.
Art, Play, and Movement Therapy
Through drawing, play, or movement such as dancing you can understand the way you are feeling. As with other therapies you will learn about patterns in your life and you gain control in how you feel about those feelings. These type of therapies work well with children and or people that have trouble understanding or expressing their feelings. And if you don’t feel like talking about your feelings on a particular day you can do this as well.
Our sessions can be held in my office, through video chat, or in special circumstances in your home. I want our time to be as stress free as possible given that you will be discussing uncomfortable things. If at any point during your time with me you are unhappy with how things are going, please be sure and bring it to my attention. Our therapy sessions are always going to be about you. After all I’m here to help you.
