Areas of specialty

LGBTQ+: There are parts of life that can cause an increase of mental health symptoms; how you identify shouldn’t be one. As a cisgender, heterosexual, white-looking man, there have been a few moments in my life where my identity caused internal conflict. I make that declaration as a statement towards the society in which we live. The feeling of being seen by others as we see ourselves is what creates a calm mind regarding our identity. Using [SBT], we will explore and discover strengths that you recognize, strengths that you dismiss, and strengths that you refuse to acknowledge. Once identified, we use these strengths to build a foundation that provides the vigor needed to control and manage situations where identity is challenged.

Substance Use: Each person has unique experiences that are defined by how they perceive that experience. Substance Use is no difference. Historically, if you experience “addiction” it becomes a defining part of who you are: I’m [Name here] and I’m a [Drug of Choice Addict Here].” Substances can impact our lives in a multitude of ways. Using the Harm Reduction Model, we will work to identify realistic goals opposed to idealized goals. Realistic goals help to provide the success needed to minimize the role substances play in our life. We will utilize SBT to help identify strengths that we can use to fortify your ability to maintain the goals you set and ensure that you define the role of substances in your life, not the other way around.

Family & Couples: The closer the relationship, the more frustrating it can be. We allow those closest to us to hold the most emotional stock. This can lead to some pretty volitile interactions, but can also create some pretty awesome interactions as well. Wheather you’re a family of 2, 3, 4 or more, you live within a system. Everyone has a role they play. When change occurs, these roles can shift. Identifying the strengths of your family helps to provide a strong base to lean on during more challenging times. Knowing how we interact within our family system provides us the opportunity to have a multitide of moments that make up the entire experiene, as opposed to allowing a few of these interactions to define the whole relationship.

 

ADHD: Imagine having a superpower and being told you have a deficit. ADHD gives us the ability to do multiple things simultaneously; it gives us the ability to have fluid thinking. Imagine if this is what you were told when first diagnosed. What we’re oftem told is that we’ll struggle, get distracted, have difficulty paying attention, be disruptive, etc… ADHD creates difficulty at times, that is a part of the diagnosis, but not who you are. Most of us have an inquisitive nature that yearns for learning, we like to ask questions and understand what’s going on, we enjoy being a wanderer of life. If you’re ready, let’s start to redefine how your diagnosis of ADHD impacts your life and show the world the power you have!
