Did you know Depression impacts 17.3 million in the U.S. alone?
Did you know everyone experiences stress at some point in their life? What changes person to person is how we cope with it. (ADAA)
Depression may impact millions of people each day, but each person experiences it differently and those nuances should be noticed and recognized in treatment.
Collaboratively, I work with each teen or adult to determine how they can best treat their depression.
Common Techniques can include but vary case by case:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, and Motivational Interviewing.
Stress impacts everyone, but if it is becoming chronic or overwhelming and unmanageable; therapy can be a support to start to manage those stressors again.
An important point, I make with those I work with is we
can't stop stress from happening, but we can be prepared to handle it and manage it as best we can.
Common Techniques used for Stress Management:
Psychoeducation on Stress, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Based Therapy.
Gender and Sexual Identity Development & Exploration
Gender and Sexual Identity support as a teen and adult can be beneficial when finding the right fit in your therapist. Whether you want to exclusively focus on better understanding where you are in your journey or if you want a therapist that is accepting and affirming of your identity while you address other therapeutic areas, I am here to provide you a space for you to be you unapologetically.
My training is ongoing to remain up to date on best practices and I seek out trainings provided by those of lived experience on various topics.
