Most therapist training and education generally focuses on identifying risk factors in clients. Therapist narrow in with a laser beam mentality, all while excluding the positive traits of the client. At ChoiceWorks Counseling, the therapist focuses on building clients resiliency by focusing on clients personal strengths (ex. compassion, humor, determination). Every client has been created with resilient traits that will allow them to overcome obstacles in their life. The therapist will take the client on a journey of self-discovery in order to identify psychological barriers and discover personal strengths. As a result, the client will develop new insights regarding their thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a cognitive behavioral therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. Cognitive Behavorial Therapy involves learning to recognize and change thought patterns that led to troublesome emotions, feelings, and behaviors. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
