I have been educated to utilize CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), DBT-informed (dialectical behavioral therapy), trauma informed care, person-centered approach, solution focused.
Are you beginning to notice that life has begun to feel unmanageable or overwhelming? Often times, we encounter periods in our life that seem to push us to our limits and exhaust our ability to cope with daily experiences. Each person enters therapy with a lifetime of triumphs and setbacks. We will work to gain awareness of current and past challenges, develop sustainable strategies that will improve your ability to cope, and—most importantly—provide you with a safe, warm, and accepting environment where you can be openly expressive. I am passionate about assisting others in defining their own inner truth.

The general goals for the client are that they can identify the issues, develop a plan of action, and then implement that plan. This is a very personal process. It is educational and developmental by nature. Cures are not immediate, pain-free, or instant by nature, but may require diligent effort and candid exploration. This exploration often involves experiencing ‘unpleasant’ feelings as part of the counseling process within and outside of scheduled sessions. These feelings may include but are not limited to: Anger, guilt, sadness, anxiety, or confusion.

How do you feel about change? Or lack of control? It is not easy with adapting to change, and as the world is changing, it may feel like we don't have a grasp of our lives. Sometimes the more we spend time with ourselves, we discover more about what we like, don't like, can control, can't control... and often times, we don't always know what to do or how to keep going. I've been there, and I want to be there for you through this time. Sometimes, all we need is a person to hear us without judgment, and provide us with insight and the truth to our concerns.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Lakewood, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
