I help individuals to reduce stress, anxiety, guilt, shame, and depression. I also work with individuals to rebuild self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy; as well as parts work to help individuals recover from life distress and trauma.
Game Assisted Therapy
Do you find traditional talk therapy to be intimidating and uncomfortable? Do you find it difficult to connect to your therapist in a traditional office setting? Have you been told that there must be something wrong with you because you find comfort in gaming? With Game Assisted Therapy we utilize a variety of games to help build connection and break traditional ideas of what therapy can be! Game Assisted Therapy utilizes games as a vehicle to spur connection. Providing a safe space for individuals who crave a non-traditional therapy environment.
Parental and Family Trauma
Do you find yourself stuck in a manipulative or emotionally abusive relationship with your parents or other family members? Do you often take on parental or family member responsibilities and burdens that breeds shame and guilt when you are unable help? Do you often find yourself craving validation from your parents, only to be hurt time and time again? We cannot change the past, nor control the future but we can change how we respond. I collaborate with you to communicate and implement healthy boundaries. Along with other necessary skills that allows you to have healthier relationships, not only with others, but also with yourself.
Do you often find yourself agreeing to help others despite being burnt out yourself? When you do make time for yourself do you constantly beat yourself up over uncompleted tasks? Does it often feel as though your brain just won’t shut off? Anxiety and Depression can fuel an exhausting cycle of wanting to do more but lacking the energy to get the ball rolling. I collaborate with you to create a personalized treatment plan that focuses on meeting YOUR needs, because therapy is not a one size fits all approach.
