Hi, my name is Rosaura, but please call me Rose. Do you ever feel like your thoughts are "too much"? Or maybe you're having certain negative thoughts that interrupt your daily life, relationships, and even work? I can help you understand these thoughts to be able to manage them and continue to live your life. I help people who are suffering from anxiety and depression by teaching them and inviting them to understand where these thoughts are coming from and why they are happening. I like to use cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness to enhance awareness and increase mindfulness in our day-to-day life. You don't have to do this alone, you're already taking the first step in this journey, meeting with a therapist and working together to overcome these difficult challenges and obstacles is something we can tackle together.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
Our sessions are all about you! After the first session, we will discuss a treatment plan to guide us to your goals and each time we meet, we will focus on the objectives to reach the goals. Because each client is different, no two sessions are alike, there will be days where sessions will focus on gaining knowledge and learning skills while others will focus on sharing and being vulnerable. While I will encourage you, I will not push you to share what you do not feel comfortable with. As we have more sessions together, trust will be developed until you feel comfortable to share the more distressing memories you might hold.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as my primary method of intervention, I work collaboratively with my clients to identify "thinking errors" and to reframe them so they do not cause anymore distress. While I enjoy using CBT, I also utilize interventions from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Schema Therapy. I am eclectic during sessions in hopes to provide my clients with different tools so they may explore what works best for them.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I enjoy working with individuals who struggle with anxiety and depression as those disorders can have a big effect on their everyday lives, such as stopping them from going outside to not being able to form meaningful relationships and the sooner we start the therapeutic work, the sooner we can see change and progress.
