My name is Aditi Patel. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHC-A). I have a Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) approach in counseling; however, therapeutic techniques and approaches are modified based on your needs and what works best for you. In a CBT approach, we will focus on thought distortions that are causing psychological stress and reinforcing behaviors. This approach focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I intend to help you find meaning and purpose in your life.
I have experience working with young children. Previously, I was a preschool teacher and had experience working with many children who fall under the Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have experience working with many adolescents and adults who experience various mental health challenges such as anxiety, depression, anger, adjustment, etc.
My main focus as your therapist is you. I view counseling as a series of small stepping-stones, each representing success. When joined together, they provide a path for change. Teamwork is the most important foundation in my approach. I am here to help guide you towards meeting goals and resolving challenges that life throws at you. I aim to work with you to overcome the obstacles you face in your life and embark with you on your journey. I hope that throughout our time together, you will create a path towards understanding and being able to resolve your own challenges. Remember, counseling is a personal exploration of yourself, and change will occur if we work together. If you feel like you are ready to take that first step towards change, I encourage you to reach out to schedule a session. I look forward to working with you.
