Effective and advanced clinical techniques can resolve symptoms related to depression, anxiety and trauma. As we work through the process you will find your motivation increasing as you develop insight into yourself and your thinking process. You will begin to develop hope as you see a brighter future ahead. Sleep issues clear up as the underlying causes are reduced and you become more functional with the right amount of rest. When anxiety, trauma and depressive symptoms decrease you will be more functional at work and within relationships. You will be less reactive and find an increase in your problem solving ability.
If you decide to work on trauma you will gain pervasive and long lasting benefits as you rid yourself of negative memories that have been haunting you for years. This frees your mind to live a life of confidence and optimism. When therapy works the benefits are hard to measure as your new frame of mind will affect every decision that you make. Take time for your most important organ, your brain. I believe that a strong mental outlook and a healthy attitude will drastically affect the trajectory of your life.
I got into counseling by accident, or so I thought. In doing my undergrad at UPJ, I started my first semester undecided, that is until I walked into my first psychology course. It just fit me and my personality. Sure, I have a natural tendency to want to help people, but it is more than that. I love to problem solve and enjoy the process of psychotherapy. Taking someone that walks in off the street and coaching them to wellness is what I love. It is amazing watching the change.
After a few years in the field I decided to go back for a master's degree. I attended Pitt's Masters in Social Work Program and it forever changed my career and life. The skills and experiences at Pitt shaped me and layed a strong foundation for my career.
