Hello, I'm Sakera Are you struggling with trying to stay on track? Are you struggling with figuring out why you think the way you think, why you feel the way you feel, or even why it's so hard to stay focused? I completely understand. Let me help you gain the coping skills needed to be the best you that you can be. But before, we move forward here is a little bit about me. I'm a highly motivated and dedicated mental health professional with years of experience using therapeutic techniques and working in various settings, including Intellectually/Developmentally Disabled (I/DD) adults, Substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, medication-assisted (MAT) treatment, and Autism. I therapeutically rely on evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MT), and Mindfulness. (Mental health is Physical health)
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
After our first session, we'll begin to dive into some very important moments. I like to figure out the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and HOW questions. These questions help us to understand what's going on inside our brains. But before we can get started rapport building is number one, building a therapeutic relationship is what helps to foster a solid foundation. So let's get to know one another.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
My specialty includes CBT Cognitive behavioral therapy, one of the most effective methods of treatment for mental health disorders. Motivational Interviewing and solutional focus therapy. Although, our past can help bring clarity into who we are and why we do the things we do. I also like to focus on current problems and solutions. In other words - How can I help you today?
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
Teaching my clients to become self-aware is my biggest strength. But what makes it even more special is that I also teach my clients coping skills to use once they become mindful of their thoughts, feeling, and actions.
