It's all about relationships, starting with your relationship to yourself, your family of origin, your partner, children, friends. And then there's the relationship to your problems: things like depression, anxiety, ADHD, post-partum and parenting stress, body-image problems. How do you work with the set of challenges that life hands you? I work with clients to understand themselves and their own story, and then apply that understanding, in the form of coping and problem-solving skills, to their relationships, to get through life's pain and into a life worth living.
I use DBT, CBT and Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), as well as other evidence-based treatment modalities to help adults throughout the lifespan, teens, and parents, including moms experiencing post-partum depression, to get back on track with the life they want to lead. I work cognitively and relationally to help clients build skills for coping.
I'd love to talk with you about how we might work together to get you moving into the life you want to lead. The best way to reach me is by phone, to set up a free 30-minute telephone consultation. Or you can reach me via my secure client portal, and even book an appointment or send me an email. https://valerie-hodgskisslmft.clientsecure.me
