"I am a firm believer in finding balance between feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Sometimes what we are dealing with is simply present day stress, needing a safe environment to process and get feedback. Other times events from our past dictate our reactions to today's experiences. This leads to giving our power away and continuing to suffer. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as other approaches when indicated, always focusing on the client's goals. I am focused on respectful approaches to teaching tools that allow each client's efforts to result in positive impacts throughout their lives."

I employ many different therapeutic techniques such as client centered, mindfulness, cognitive -behavioral, ACT, etc.
It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I hold an Anger Management Certification. I also enjoy working with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially. This includes working with individuals on the high functioning end of the Autism scale.

I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and also utilize cognitive and behavioral techniques.
We all experience events, whether earlier in life or more recent, that cause us to become stuck. Sometimes the cause of our symptoms is quite clear, other times it can be difficult to recognize what is causing avoidance, doubt, depression, anxiety, or escape. I empower people to identify, confront, and heal from past memories or recent experiences that lead to undesired thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. I believe people naturally move towards becoming the best versions of themselves and, with some guidance, can make choices that move them in healthy directions.

Life can bring about overwhelming emotional experiences that make us feel out of touch with our ourselves. Healing is possible. Neuroscience has shown us that our brains have the ability to make new connections and heal throughout our entire lives. We can restore our balance and find ourselves again. I love helping my clients to make these new healthy connections. I am committed to the clients that I serve. I use a structured approach and have clear plan of action.

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 Normal or for a Normal CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
