Individual Therapy

As a therapist, I help my clients to develop coping strategies and to develop strengths to address the life’s everyday issues, stressors and traumas. This is addressed by building upon what has been helpful or worked in past situations. Providing Psycho-education and challenging and correcting thinking errors, introducing helpful skills/techniques.

Conjoint Therapy

Conjoint therapy is an approach to treatment where two or more clients are seen together in a therapy session. This type of therapy may be used in marriage counseling or to deal with issues between a parent and a child. Clients dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following military service or another traumatic event who are having trouble in their personal relationships may also benefit from conjoint therapy.

Adult Transitions Counseling

Making the transition into adulthood can be a frustrating, self-doubting, and even painful experience. With the structure of you parent’s home, high school or even college gone, the “real world” may be staring you down. And, the pressures to figure out who you are, what you want to do with the rest of your life and new adult demands and responsibilities can feel very overwhelming. You may be struggling with relationships and friendships. You could be feeling challenged at school or at work or be struggling to find and maintain a job. You may be sleeping too much or distracting yourself with partying, video games or other activities. Regardless of how you’re spending your time, you’re likely feeling pressured to figure it all out and do something meaningful with your life.

Therapy Can Be An Extremely Effective Way To Help You Figure Out Next Steps

Group Therapy/Counseling

Group counseling is a form of counseling where a small group of people meet regularly to discuss, interact, and explore problems with each other and the group leader. Group counseling seeks to give students a safe and comfortable place on campus where they can work out problems and emotional concerns. Members gain insight into their own thoughts and be­havior, and offer suggestions and support to others.

In addition, people who have a difficult time with interpersonal relationships can benefit from the social interactions that are a basic part of the group counseling experience.

Most groups composed of students of differing ages, backgrounds and ex­periences. This helps to provide additional perspectives.

Intimacy Issues Counseling

Intimacy is the ability to share true closeness and connection with another person - this includes romantic relationships and sex, of course, but other types of relationships can also experience intimacy and intimacy issues. Many people with a fear of intimacy and intimacy problems have few close relationships outside of their families, and even familial relationships may be distant.

An example showing fear of intimacy is someone who constantly pushes away people they care about without meaning to or realizing they are doing it. Your intimacy issues might even prevent you from attracting the right kind of people into your life or forming intimate relationships. And although a fear of intimacy won't kill you, (you can, of course, live without intimacy in your life) it will likely be a lonely and unhappy life, perhaps even a shorter one. Research shows that lack of intimacy may lead to a shorter lifespan, not to mention the negative impact it has on your relationships. This is one of the main reasons people who have a fear of intimacy need to find healthy of dealing with intimacy disorders and emotional intimacy issues.

Lack of intimacy in your relationships and physical intimacy issues can cause health issues. People who rate higher on the fear of intimacy scale report more physical ailments and mental health concerns. Many people aren't aware that fear of intimacy can lead to physical symptoms like chronic pain and mental health issues like anxiety, disorder, or depression.

Other effects of intimacy issues can be social isolation, increased risk for depression or substance abuse (or both), short-term serial relationships, and relationship sabotage.

Youth Adolescent Therapy

Child counseling is a type of therapy that focuses on young children, teens, and adolescents with one or more mental illnesses. It also provides aid to youths, who have experienced trauma, and/or who are experiencing a dysfunctional or stressful home environment.

Trauma Informed Therapy

Trauma-informed therapy is centered on the understanding of the emotional, neurological, psychological, social, and biological effects of trauma on those who are seeking therapy and mental health services. Trauma experienced when young affects the mental well-being of individuals throughout life. If you are wondering, "is trauma-informed therapy right for me?" and you have experienced trauma in your life, the answer is yes.

If you have experienced trauma in your life it is important to understand that it affects your life now. The trauma left untreated does not go away, it buries itself in the psyche and emerges in destructive behaviors such as alcoholism/addiction, depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. Trauma-informed therapy is right for anyone who has experienced trauma in their life.

Trauma-informed therapy addresses the underlying trauma that triggers undesired thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that surface. If the trauma is not addressed therapy cannot be effective. It is impossible to solve a problem when pieces to the puzzle are missing. A trauma informed therapist uses psychotherapy techniques that are focused on understanding how that trauma triggers behaviors that seem unrelated.

In behavioral health settings, trauma-informed care is the norm. It is important for you to be honest and straight forward when answering questions before you begin therapy. The therapeutic relationship between your therapist and you are only effective if the therapist is aware of any trauma you have experienced, even if you think it is completely unrelated to the problems you are seeking help with.

Through research and studies such as ACE or the Adverse Childhood Experience, modern psychology has uncovered the strong relationship between trauma and present adverse behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. If you have experienced trauma in your life, you will benefit from trauma-informed therapy. And, if you aren't comfortable attending sessions in person, or don't have time in your schedule to make it happen then try online counseling session through the licensed therapist at BetterHelp. Don't let there be a reason you don't seek the treatment you. (n.d.)
