Individual Therapy 

Feeling unmotivated, sad or anxious are normal human emotions, but when these feelings are interfering with your daily life, reach out for help.

You're yearning to stop feeling this way, but you're not sure how to get there

Sometimes feelings of depression and anxiety can pop up after experiencing a negative event, sometimes it's been going on for awhile and you're not quiet sure when it started or why. 

How it works:

We’ll start where you are. We'll talk about what has been happening in your life and what brought you to therapy. I'll explore with you your family of origin and dynamics and patterns in your relationships and learn how you perceive the world around you and how you think and speak to yourself.

2

Then, we’ll start to explore the emotions and behaviors that are problematic for you and learn how they came to be. Connecting them back to the attachment significance, needs and injury. I offer EMDR if there is significant links to attachment or previous events that are impacting your thoughts feelings or behaviors.

After understanding and/or resolving past injuries that contribute to negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors, I will use CBT to help you learn strategies to improve your problematic areas. This is individualized to each person's need, but ranges from learning coping/relaxation skills, assertiveness training, behavior modification, tracking thoughts and feelings, amongst various other skills.

CBT Therapy 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a popular, evidence-based, form of therapy, often used to treat depression and anxiety (as well as other problem areas). One of the basic messages of CBT is that what you think and what you do affects the way you feel. CBT is a structured type of therapy, which involves various techniques that are used with and taught to an individual. Techniques are aimed at correcting dysfunctional thoughts and maladaptive behavior patterns. This type of therapy often requires the individual to complete “homework” such as logging thoughts, mood or activities outside of therapy sessions.

CBT is not a therapist telling you to “just think positively” or “look on the bright side.” Although thinking positively is helpful, it’s often not that simple, and CBT does much more than this. CBT teaches individuals to learn how to identify negative automatic thoughts, understand where they come from, recognize misinterpretations, and create more accurate and helpful thoughts. This change in thinking patterns results in a positive shift in mood and behaviors. CBT also looks at how our behaviors affect the way we feel. For example: If you sleeping 13 hours a day, then feel unmotivated and think you’re a failure – adjusting your behavior (sleeping pattern) into a healthier routine can assist in shifting your thoughts and emotions in a positive direction.
