I have training in a treatment approached called T.E.A.M. Therapy. T.E.A.M. Therapy is an advanced form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This approach provides me with 50 different techniques to change negative thoughts. I also have additional training in grief and family dynamics.
I became a counselor after a life altering event so I do not take my work with clients lightly. I enjoy studying new techniques so I can skillfully help others develop coping skills that they can carry with them throughout their life.
I love helping my clients transform their negative thoughts to thoughts that give them hope and happiness. It is wonderful to hear my clients tell me that they are feeling much better since they started therapy.

My process involves going over the symptoms a new client is experiencing and their life history. We will then discuss why they are seeking counseling after discussing their history. Near the end of the first session, I will discuss with the client my style of counseling and explain Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My advice is to not give up on counseling if you do not connect with your counselor. Each counselor may or may not be a fit with your personality. Do not give up hope on finding relief from your pain.
The biggest question that you need to answer is why you are seeking counseling. Think of the goal that you want to accomplish. Do you want to get more organized, do you want to start socializing more, do you want to finally find a healthy relationship? These are the type of questions that you need to explore. Don't worry, a good counselor can help you set your goals.
