You took the hardest step today; your healing journey can begin. My name is Kristina (Tina), and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). What being a LCSW means to me is that I am a helper. The space I hold for you is individualized to acknowledge you, support you, and encourage you to be your greatest advocate. For trauma, my focus is in helping clients work through the impact trauma has had on their lives. Trauma effects multiple aspects of life: can’t trust or are over-trusting, feelings are too big or too little, sometimes things are just really hard. Your trauma is unique to you deserving a path to healing. ADHD can feel like a rollercoaster of things to do, disorganization, poor time management, feelings all over the place. There is so much more to ADHD than meets the eye. We can learn together what your ADHD is to you. Anxiety can feel like you’re always vibrating on the inside, body and mind feels chaotic. Let’s find out ways to ground, be mindful, breathe. I am accepting new clients. Please contact me directly for help with scheduling. I look forward to working with you.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
I provide a free 15 minute phone consultation to see if we will be a good team. Please email me at email@example.com to schedule a consultation. You can also contact me at 682-251-1641. After that, we can schedule our first session! During our first session we will explore what support you are needing and plan together a goal approach you are comfortable with. My method during the first session and following sessions is to listen, gently explore, and help you garner self-awareness. Here is Grow Therapy's National Provider Identification Number (NPI) if you'd like to contact your insurance company to verify my services will be in your policy's network; 1245845932.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I like to intertwine several methods with my clients. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, mind/body connection, as well as Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR).
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have an empathic style. One of my biggest strengths is being able to pay attention to what you are saying, as well as what your body language is saying. Many times, we hold feelings in our body physically. For example, tight shoulders or shallow breathing. We can work on connecting the connection!
