Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Therapy Style

I am a positive, motivating, and compassionate professional who likes to keep it real and utilizes evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions. CBT is a psychosocial approach that helps change thoughts and behaviors to improve mood management and develop healthy coping strategies. Our thoughts are very powerful! When we change the way we think about the world, the world around us changes.

Therapy will focus on confidentiality, risks and benefits, desired changes, and writing down personal goals that are SMART: specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and time-bound. Homework assignments often involve journaling or working on one of the top five strategies for self-care. I provide a safe, supportive environment to openly express and process feelings.

I use techniques such as diaphragmatic deep breathing, relaxation exercises, hypnotherapy, bibliotherapy, journaling, positive self-talk, “I can” and “I am” affirmations, power thought cards, meditation, prayer, and mindfulness. I offer empathy, hope, and empowerment. Therapy is a powerful process that fosters overall mental health, self-care, mood management, stress management, coping skills, communication, interpersonal relationships, self-awareness, and personal growth.
