I use a variety of mental health counseling techniques and interventions to best serve my clients and the problems they are experiencing so that they are empowered to overcome and have success. I stand on a foundation of strengths based Person Centered therapy using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Existential Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy.
I also have extensive education, training, and experience as a Christian Counselor and Stevens Minister.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT, is learning how to non-judgmentally experience thoughts and feelings rather than avoiding and fighting them. You are then able to make decisions based upon what you value and who you identify as.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, is looking at how you think, how you feel, and how you act as relative to one another and changing unhealthy thinking and behavioral patterns.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy, or SFBT, is where we really do not focus on the problem, but in finding solutions and actively taking steps to implement them.
