Hi! I'm Kristy. If you're motivated for change in your life but not sure how to achieve that change, I want to assist you on that journey.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Bowling Green, KY
CBT methods are useful for helping those I work with regulate their emotions, use effective and personalized coping strategies, and mitigate the effects of cognitive distortions and behaviors.
I believe in the power of evidence-based psychotherapy strategies in positively impacting someone's behavior.
I believe that every person is in a unique situation with unique challenges facing them. As such, I believe that multiple sets of techniques are best for helping people overcome their most complex life issues.
Anxiety attacks can be debilitating, I know. I want you to know that anxiety, like depression, can be treated. Effective therapy can reduce or eliminate anxiety symptoms fairly quickly. I understand that it takes some time to open up, but the sooner this happens the quicker you'll be able to overcome the grips of anxiety!
Sadly, more and more people are experiencing depression each year. I have a heavy heart for these people and want to help you overcome the disease of depression. I know the terrible extent to which it makes a person feel hopeless. What I want you to know is that depression can be TREATED. It is a mental health concern, not a personality flaw. Let me help you along the path of recovery and gain your happiness back.
I believe the family unit is one of, if not the most, influential support systems in one's life. Each individual in the family has a unique affect on other's and is similarly affected by the rest. So when one member of the family suffers, everyone is affected in one way or another. It's my goal to help families establish realistic expectations, roles, and behavioral norms. Let me help your family identify the issues, overcome them, and grow stronger together.
