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 behaviors that are reinforcing them. This approach focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. My intention is to help you find meaning and purpose in your life.
I have experience working with young children. Previously, I was a preschool teacher and have experience working with many children who fall under the Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have experience working with many adolescents and adults who experience a variety of 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 are facing in your life and embark with you on your journey. It is my hope that throughout our time together that 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.
