What is Dialectical behavior therapy?
DBT is a modified type of Cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, regulate emotions, coping skills for stress management, and improve their relationships with others. It can help those who struggle with substances abuse and addiction.
What is Compassion focused therapy?
Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) aims to help promote mental and emotional healing by encouraging people in treatment to be compassionate toward themselves and other people. Compassion, both toward the self and toward others, is an emotional response believed by many to be an essential aspect of well-being.
What is Brainspotting?
Please check out my page on this therapy.
Are you struggling with drinking, using substances, gambling, shopping, or other compulsive behavior that you can’t seem to stop? Do you feel ashamed, guilty, and drained from hiding the behaviors you are engaging in? Addiction can make a person and their loved ones feel broken and helpless. Many aspects of your life could be suffering from the disease of addiction. Has addiction impacted your ability to work or maintain your goals and priorities? The cravings and anxiety you feel just wont give you any peace. The cycle of numbing from your emotions and feelings has now became too much to handle. Losing your family and employment are now at risk and you have decided that you are going to take the step to Recovery. The disease can be treated with much time and effort by you and your team. Education, psychotherapy, hypnosis, brainspotting, and AA meetings can all lead you on a path to recovery.
As a Licensed Advanced Drug and alcohol counselor, I have worked thousands of hours helping clients work at sobriety, and maintaining recovery. I take a three- legged stool approach working on Mind, Body and Spirit. Guiding the client on the journey of recovery includes teaching many coping skills, DBT skills, and working on underlining trauma. Often times clients have a hard time with talk therapy, the last thing they want to do is relive their pain. Other therapies such as hypnosis and brainspotting can help with this.
Working with all ages including teens, which I make great connections with. Let‘s walk the journey to Recovery together, it is my honor!
