I utilize a person-centered approach, strengths based, solution focused, and employ various methods of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Aloha, my name is LaVon, and I want to first say great job on taking the first and necessary step to address your challenges. Therapy can provide you with the space you need to safely and openly explore your experiences of trauma, conflict, and loss. Addressing these experiences in therapy without the stigmas and fear of judgment can be useful in alleviating stress, anxiety, anger, and depression. The relationship that ensues between the client and therapist along with the client's strengths, insight, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, facilitates growth toward goal achievement for the client.

Do you find yourself burdened with repetitive thoughts of “Why can’t I escape my past?” or you can’t seem to escape the guilt or shame associated with a past traumatic event? Do you find it nearly impossible to find peace? These very things rob us daily from experiencing joy, confidence, happiness, peace, and healthy relationships. Relationships are my passion, especially those concerning individuals suffering from issues related to communication, addiction, sexual abuse, loss of identity, intimacy, marriage/divorce, depression, and broken trust. Each individual, in my opinion, is unique and my approach is tailored case specific.

We all experience challenging and sometimes overwhelming periods in life. While turning to friends, family, or faith is often helpful in navigating life's paths, we also benefit from a trained ear that can listen from the outside. Therapy is a safe place for exploration; a journey towards more fulfilling relationships, a greater sense of emotional, mental & spiritual well-being as well as increased self-esteem. Our work together will provide you with the support, guidance and the tools you will need to reach your goals.

On the outside, it seems as if you have it all together. But inside, you are struggling with imposter syndrome. Your list of things to do continues to grow, but it seems as if there are never enough hours in the day. You know you should prioritize yourself and your health, but everything and everyone else’s needs seem to dominate your time, energy, and efforts. At the end of the day, you sometimes don’t recognize yourself in the mirror. Your best efforts don't seem to be enough and it’s impacting you and those you love. You want things to get better, but you don’t even know where to start.

You can’t control the challenging factors you are faced with in life but you can be empowered by how you perceive and respond. Difficulties, trials, struggles, pain, and grief are unavoidable even if you perceive to make the "right" choices. Life can be hard sometimes and unfair. Even the daily stressors of work, career, family, responsibilities, life transitions, difficult relationships, and lack of expectations being met can weigh you down. You live life through experiences, and experiences are understood through your perceptions. When you develop the tools to manage your perceptions, you can also manage those experiences.

"You are the Potter I am the clay. Mold me and make me, have Thine own way. Lord,I give my life, I give my all to You, To be a willing vessel, to use me through and through." These lyrics describe the reason why I have chosen to pursue my dream in private practice.How often do we find ourselves living a life of mediocrity? Knowing that we have one life to live wouldn't you want it to be dynamic & fullfilling? Life is too short to not be living at our best.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
