I want you to know your worth and how valuable you are.
I suffered with self-doubt, anxiety and insecurity as a teen and young adult. As a parent I felt constant feelings of guilt- feeling that I was not enough. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice because the methods have worked for me. I was able to shift my perspective from being stuck in negative self-critical thoughts to being more accepting and kind with myself.
Therapy doesn’t have to be forever.
I’m invested in your improvement. Part of what I do is ask for feedback to make sure that treatment is focused on what it is you want to talk about and accomplish. I use 50 different tools and strategies to help you untwist your thinking and I do require homework.
