I find myself with more enthusiasm when I provide therapy for children and adolescents along with support from family members. I utilize the strengths based perspective and pair this perspective with families to facilitate healthy development and healing. Emotions can be challenging to manage and understand. It is essential for children and adolescents to develop distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and mindfulness to begin to better express themselves and to handle their emotions in a more effective manner. Being able to cope through distressing emotions will allow children and adolescents to feel the sense of control and will allow them to develop life-long skills.
Parents play an essential role in the supportive environment that children and adolescents need in order to develop the healthy coping skills to manage emotions. I will provide guidance for parents to allow the help necessary for when their children are at home. This guidance allows for much needed support and validation when handling sometimes difficult or confusing challenges in your family. My goal is to provide a warm environment in order to allow family members and their children to communicate feelings and needs between them.
My main approach to therapy is empathetic, active listening, friendliness, and open-mindness. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) also play a significant role in my approach as a therapist. I tend to meet clients where they are at and allow them to develop healthy habits and skills when they are ready and comfortable.
