7 years of experience

I’m Becks, a Licensed Professional Counselor & NASM Certified Personal Trainer who specializes in behavior change & nutrition coaching. You might also call me a guiding light toward overall wellness or a catalyst for growth & healing. My great passion as a Health & Wellness Professional is to help you build a healthier relationship with food & your body, cultivate emotional agility to freely express yourself, & be able to communicate your needs/wants to others more effectively. While I’d love to help you improve your mental health through movement & balanced nutrition, I also understand that everyone’s starting point in therapy can look very different. It would be my pleasure in meeting you where you are in your journey to help build your toolbox of skills so that you can lead the life you deserve to live.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then discuss specific challenges that are bringing you to therapy. This will help us create goals in session to work through in follow up sessions. In our sessions moving forward, we'll explore your biggest successes/challenges or discuss ways in which you best managed your week.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength is the ability to help others improve their body image through balanced eating & movement. Since self-care can look different for any individual, I love helping my clients implement ANY form of movement into their self-care routine. In my own time growing up, I've learned a lot about how our thoughts & emotions can impact the way we lead our lives. I enjoy utilizing CBT to help you recognize when your thoughts might be troublesome & work through ways to redirect those thoughts or relate to them in a different light. Combining this with DBT can also be beneficial in learning how to manage overwhelming emotions. Overall, I love helping my clients develop acceptance of what is, incorporate mindfulness into daily life, & build strength to live a values-based life.

My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

I utilize DBT interventions with those struggling with depression/anxiety to create a toolbox of skills to help manage & reduce some of the distress caused by those mood disorders. Access to such a toolbox provides individuals with immediate relief & can reduce feelings of hopelessness. Individuals will be able to learn skills for acceptance of what they can't change (their past, other people) & adaptive change skills for what they can control.

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I utilize ACT to help individuals struggling with depression/anxiety to get "unstuck" from difficult thoughts & feelings, to be more accepting of themselves & their experiences, & to live life in a way that matters most to them.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

The foundation of CBT is the connection between emotions, thoughts, & actions. By implementing CBT for clients struggling with depression/anxiety, you're able to learn about cognitive patterns & apply effective skills that challenge those negative thoughts, actions, or beliefs. When you're able to apply these skills to your everyday life & change your thoughts, your behaviors tend to follow.
