I use a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment:
Based on the belief that one's thoughts, not situations or circumstances, are a core cause of feelings and behaviors. A benefit of this framework is that one can change their thoughts and feelings-- impacting actions, even if the environment does not change.
Focuses on four modules: mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance.
Supporting the analysis and exploration of early childhood trauma and experiences in various family systems: examining conscious, unconscious, and subconscious parts of the mind.
Coordinating and customizing social services, referrals, and resources to meet comprehensive mental health needs.
Assessing and learning about one's uniqueness and potential for self-actualization through strengths, skills, and talents. This becomes a catalyst for treatment, planning, and self-directed growth.
