My approach is rooted in evidence-based therapies.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Put simply, CBT holds that our thoughts interact with our emotions and behaviors. We will work to identify and change the unhelpful automatic thoughts you hold to be more helpful, while practicing coping skills that work specifically for you. In turn, we can change the way you feel, leading to positive behavioral changes.
We all have stories about ourselves, others, and the world around us, which tend to be a culmination of cultural messages we have received throughout our lives -- from family, friends, community, and society as a whole. Many of our stories rear their heads through unhelpful thoughts. We will reflect on messages you have received, how they are helpful or unhelpful to living out your ideal story, and empower you to take control of your life's story.
