Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MA, LCSW, DCSW
My training includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (or how our thoughts and beliefs affect our feelings and behaviors),
Therapy (an approach that helps with inner conflict, feelings of being different, and self-esteem), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (which helps us cope with out of control feelings and behaviors).
Almost all of us struggle, from time to time, with worry, unhappiness, self-hate, despair and anger. With too many negative feelings, our interpersonal lives can become conflicted and dysfunctional. We may lose our friends, job, or even our life partner, Further, we may turn to any number of drugs or behaviors to try to manage our pain.
Psychotherapy helps us to understand, cope with, and even change our painful feelings and behaviors. The goal is to enjoy and engage in life more fully, and move towards the goals that will give our lives meaning and value.
