My ideal client is someone who is struggling and needs support quickly. His/her issues could range with intense moods to overwhelmed and stressed by life, work, or family. The goals would be to alleviate the symptoms and obtain relief quickly. The client would like to feel calmer and have more tools to help manage what he or she needs. Perhaps, the client is interested in gaining more awareness to their own thoughts, feelings, and sensations. My goal is to help people feel better faster. I have worked for a community mental health agency since 2008 and have a vast knowledge of strategies and techniques to use with you.
Are you looking to lead your best life? I can guide you as I have experience in many areas including trauma work, TBRI, TF-CBT, attachment theory, suicidal ideation (ASIST), ACT, SFBT, DBT, and play therapy. I also am fascinated by how the nervous system works and I use this knowledge frequently. I see individual clients as well as families.
My goal when building a relationship with a new client is to have you feel comfortable as soon as you are able to. I feel as though I am a guide in helping you work on bettering your self and feeling the best you can. I am primarily working on the weekends.
Yo trabajo con muchos diferentes siptomas incluyendo ansiedad, trauma, y depresion. Mi meta es para clientes y familias tener mas herrimientos para relajar y sentirse mejor. Trabajo con muchas personas de diferentes edades en muchas maneras. Usualmente, el/la cliente quiere relajar y/o se siente bien. A veces, hay tristezas o otras cosas causando estas siptomas o preocupaciones. Mi meta es para la persona se siente mas calmado y tener mas regulacion de las emociones.
Yo uso muchas tecnicas incluyendo para tener tiempo en el presente momento, reducir estres, y terapia de jugar (para ninos). Tambien, quiero procesando los sentimientos fuertes en una manera saludable y proveyer apoyo a el/la cliente.
Lo mas importante cosa en terapia es para Ud. le gusta la terapeuta y tener confianza en el/la terapeuta. Durante la inicial cita, mi meta es para Ud. se siente comodo y notar que esta pasando en tu cuerpo, tus sentimientos, y tus pensamientos.
