Announcement icon I am offering online video sessions and phone sessions to help give you the support you need. You don't have to go this alone!
Are you struggling anxiety, depression, and/or all the life changes happening right now in our world? Is your child or teen having a tough time with this major life transition? Are parenting challenges rising to the forefront? If so, you or your family members don't have to go it alone. I can help you or your family member learn tools to manage anxiety, decrease depression, improve your mindset, and increase your ability to cope with the changes in our world. Sometimes it can be helpful to have someone outside of your family and friends to get support from, and a trained licensed therapist is the way to go.
With nearly 20 years of experience, I specialize in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help people learn ways to work with their emotions and mindset to move to an improved emotional state. It can feel overwhelming to deal with life when not at our best. Working with me can help you move towards a more balanced and peaceful life.
My practice is totally online and via phone at this time, including my Wise Girl Workshops program, which provides support for girls in 3rd-8th grades. You can learn more about my work on my facebook page Sierra Dator, MSW, LCSW and on my instagram @wise_girl_workshops.
