Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a highly effective combination of talk therapy and behavioral therapy. CBT is a type of psychotherapy in which patients reframe negative thinking patterns into positive thoughts. Transforming one’s thoughts will ultimately result in positive actions and behaviors in difficult moments.
Mindfulness-Based Therapy is a modified form of cognitive therapy that incorporates mindfulness practices such as meditation and breathing exercises. Using these tools clients can break away from negative thought patterns that can cause a anxiety, depression and other changes to our mood and sense of well-being.
It's normal to worry about things from time to time, but when worry takes up a significant part of your day or causes physical symptoms, therapy can help you deal with it. I am skilled at helping you to turn the dial down on those thoughts and feelings of anxiety so that it does not take center stage in your life.
Often ADHD can prevent a person from achieving their potential in a variety of situations. Therapy can be very helpful for the individual with ADHD to develop a more planned and reflective approach to thinking and behaving, including social interactions. It can also help individuals adopt a more reflective, systematic and goal-oriented approach to everyday tasks, activities and problem solving, including academic or work functioning.
Anger is a normal, healthy emotion, neither good nor bad. Like any emotion, it conveys a message, telling you that a situation is upsetting, unjust, or threatening. If your reaction to anger is to explode, however, that message never has a chance to be conveyed. So, while it’s perfectly normal to become upset how we deal with that anger really decides the outcome. I am adept at helping others manage this in a new way.
