Hi! My name is Katy Miller. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor that provides online counseling sessions based in CBT.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut, CT
CBT is the gold-standard for a lot of the issues that I see clients dealing with. It has been studied over and over and has always given consistently positive results! It is also a theory that can be used for many different issues. Plus, it just makes 'sense' to me! The basis is that your behaviors, thoughts, and feelings all influence one another. If one (or more) of the three are unbalanced - then the other two (and ultimately YOU) will suffer. If you are suffering, please reach out!
Solution Focused Brief Therapy - is just what it sounds like. It is my goal to help my client find solutions to their issues as quickly and efficiently as possible. This takes different forms depending on the client and the issues they are struggling with, but the foundation is the same. What issue is this client dealing with? What solutions can we find? Which solution will give the client relief the fastest? That's the direction we go in!
Integrative Therapy means that I can pick and choose different elements from different types of therapy and use them, if I think they will help my client. I think it is important to counselors to be integrative, and able to incorporate anything that will benefit the client. After all, that is our purpose - to help the client! I always keep an open mind and utilize different 'tools' from different theories if needed.
