- There are many forms of therapy. Some types of treatment work better than others when handling different issues. It is common for therapists to combine ideas from different approaches when addressing a person's needs.
- Best time to seek therapy: if an issue causes distress or interferes with daily life. Distress can mean negative thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or even a bodily sensation such as pain or fatigue.
- It is important not to wait until symptoms become severe before going to therapy. It may be best to seek therapy if you are often unhappy or feel overwhelmed and hopeless about issues in your life.
- Therapy can also help if you cannot focus on work or school, experience addiction, or feel like hurting yourself or someone else.
- The first session of therapy often focuses on gathering information. A therapist speaks with the person in treatment about their past physical, mental, and emotional health. They also discuss the concerns bringing the person to therapy. It can take a few sessions for a therapist to have a good understanding of the situation. Only then can they address concerns and determine the best course of action.
- The person in therapy can also use their first session to decide if the therapist’s style is a good fit for their needs. Finding a therapist you are comfortable with is vital to successful treatment
About Lighthouse Marriage and Family Therapy
I am a Marriage and Family therapist and earned my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University in San Diego, California.
With Lighthouse Marriage and Family Therapy, I hope to help others by offering a neutral place for my clients to freely express their feelings, concerns and uncertainty. By doing so, I hope to create a sense of security and clarity which is my overall goal - helping others heal in a safe way. In addition to offering an ear and heart to my clients, I am in pursuit of actively de-stigmatizing therapy and want others to know and feel the power of healing through therapy.
Clinically, my philosophy is based on Jungian and Humanist Psychotherapy. I’ve worked extensively with all ages and specifically with tweens and adults. My experience as an associate marriage and family therapist provided me with skills to help individuals, parents, and couples with a wide range of emotional dysregulation, behavioral issues, trauma, and toxic abusive relationships. My passion for psychology developed from my own personal work of understanding my own emotions and relationships over the past eight years. I’ve experienced different stages of personal development and growth. I continue to strive towards a deeper understanding of myself and others.
I am thrilled to share my goal of creating an anchor for those who are willing to explore and cultivate themselves by creating a safe and non-judgmental space. If healing is on your heart, please feel free to reach out to me or schedule an appointment. I can't wait to meet you.
