Licensed Mental Health Counselor in West Palm Beach, FL
Tuning into your 5 senses, body responses, and your breath can provide volumes of awareness and understanding to managing emotional stress and reactions. No individual is too young to learn body and mindfulness awareness. Not to be confused with meditation, mindfulness can be incorporated into daily life activities.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a treatment modality used to work through trauma memories, experiences and/or distorted views of self. I may present this modality after we have established a positive working relationship and trust. This process can be emotionally challenging and life changing.
DBT is a skills based curriculum founded on the core beliefs of mindfulness and understanding our thoughts to limit harmful behaviors, thinking and/or unhealthy relationships. I have completed extensive coursework and real-time utilization of DBT in my practice. We can incorporate portions or more regimented versions of this technique in our work together.
My compassionate, validating and spunky character lead to a positive alliance with adolescents. I can guide your teen and your family through challenging times to understand expectations, needs, coping skills and compromise.
Vulnerability and change is hard! I can guide you through the challenges of your current situation to cope with the stress and build small steps towards your next move.
I can guide you through emotional awareness training and skill building to combat negative self-talk. We will understand your beliefs and cultivate functional thinking patterns to build your self-esteem.
