"My approach to counseling appreciates and recognizes the fact that you are a unique individual with your own values, strengths, and life experiences. I begin the counseling process by inviting you to discuss your situation in a safe and non-judgmental manner. I foster a collaborative relationship with you to develop personal and professional goals that will help you with life challenges. These goals could include changing behavior patterns, improving interpersonal relationships, developing productive coping skills, reframing negative thoughts and beliefs, increasing motivation level, and coping with unpleasant emotions."

"We all feel stuck at times. I believe this experience can result from an unhelpful pattern developed over time, and in addition to feeling lost or unfulfilled, we may find ourselves having emotional or behavioral concerns. From a non-judgmental space, I offer a supportive environment to connect while we work together to uncover the patterns that may contribute to pain and problems in your daily life. It is my aim to help illuminate different ways of being so that you may experience less pain, more satisfaction, and a greater quality of life."

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Washington or for a Washington CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
