CBT helps with addressing those negative thoughts and changing the way you think in order to change the emotions and behaviors you don't like. It allows us to examine how your thoughts may impact you and help you reframe them to be more kind/helpful to yourself. CBT is regularly used with other modalities to address anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other issues.
It is tough to experience an event that becomes traumatic to you. It can bring up confusing feelings, negative behaviors, and overwhelming thoughts. For individuals struggling with trauma, I utilize EMDR to help individuals process the event, uproot the negative belief system that has developed because of said event and install a positive belief to help them move forward. While amazing for individuals who struggle with trauma/PTSD, EMDR can also be extremely helpful for a wide variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, substance use, low-self esteem, eating disorders, and so on. Special population I work with are sexual assault survivors, family/generational trauma, veterans, and first responders.
Sometimes we need a little more tools in our toolbox to be able to handle events of life. This is where DBT comes in handy as it focuses on four components: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance. It is use to help individual who may struggle with mood disorders or personality disorder such as bipolar or borderline personality disorder. It is also utilize to help individuals prepare for trauma counseling.
We may not always be as ready as we'd like to change. It is hard to let go of what we know and try something unfamiliar, no matter if it can be a better path for us. I incorporate MI to explore with clients where they are in the stages of change and fears/barriers that may be preventing them from moving forward. MI is utilize to help clients examine what they need to help them take action without the pressure to do so.
