While my ultimate goal is helping my clients reach holistic wellness, my primary therapeutic approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based approach that has proven effective for issues like anxiety, depression, addiction, general stress, chronic pain, insomnia, and many others.
It is a powerful therapeutic approach that looks at your current thoughts and the behaviors they trigger. It hones in on your automated assumptions and how these manifest when you experience frustration or stress.
In CBT we identify the unhelpful thoughts that inform your feelings, decisions, and actions, and challenge these in a safe and non-judgmental way. What do you think about “X?” Is this thought accurate? What is the likely reality in situation “Y?” Are your thoughts counterproductive? What would be a more plausible explanation?
CBT provides you with greater understanding of your internal dialogue, helping you to train different thinking patterns and beliefs to better reflect both the reality around you and a more empathetic self-image. We aim to ease your suffering, improve your problems, and help you live a healthier, happier life.
