My Approach to Helping

Howdy, my name is Andrew. 

 

I’m a licensed social worker with a focus in individual and family psychotherapy. My role in therapy is to be a compassionate and nonjudgmental second set of eyes to help examine your relationships with yourself and with others. My training as a social worker and my own life experience make me conscious of the structural inequalities that shape each of our outer and inner worlds – we all have shared and unique challenges to navigate, and at times they can overwhelm our ability to show up as our best selves.

 

In therapy, my goal is to help you be true to yourself, no matter what situations life throws at you. This means I take your identities and cultural belonging seriously, so that I can understand how your experiences affect you specifically, as well as understand how to support you in becoming stronger and healthier in yourself. How can I help you have a more authentic and present experience of your life?

 

I believe mental health – mental wellness – is a full body experience. Many people seek therapy to address something or things happening in their body as well as in their mind. I want your therapy to address your mental health needs at every level, but it starts where the rubber meets the road, and I’m passionate about sharing the latest evidence-based strategies that help you better follow your funky flow.

 

Reach out whenever you’re ready. It would be an honor to understand your world through your eyes.

“The glory of creation is in its infinite diversity – and the ways our differences combine to create meaning and beauty.”

~ Gene Roddenbury

A Few Services I Provide

Services also known as modes or types of mental health care sessions can be given in a variety of formats, including:

  • Individual Therapy & Counseling: This therapy involves only the patient and the therapist. Sometimes called psychotherapy or talk therapy is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a trained mental health clinician in a safe, caring, and confidential environment.
  • Marital/Couples Counseling: This type of therapy helps a couple that is struggling with aspects of their relationship. This type of therapy can also be used to help spouses and partners understand why their loved one has a mental disorder, what changes in communication and behaviors can help, and what they can do to cope.
  • Premarital Counseling: A type of therapy that helps couples take the next step in their relationship, resolve issues in their relationship before they commit to marriage, or set relationship goals.
  • Relationship Counseling: Focuses on improving the relationship between individuals by helping them resolve interpersonal issues. The relationship may fall under the marital, couple or family groups or may be in-laws, friends, co-workers, or other acquaintances. 
  • Social WorkMental treatment and counseling for those struggling to navigate the treatment process to overcome addictive behaviors, such as drug or alcohol abuse, or mental health conditions, such as eating disorders, clinical depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PDSD) among others.
  • Telehealth: Also known as teletherapy, generally, refers to individual psychotherapy or talk therapy delivered through technology like video conferencing.

Mental health crises range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to traumatic mental health crisis or serious long-term conditions.

Types of Therapy

Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is to help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.

While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A  therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several diverse types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on their unique needs. Below are some of the types of psychotherapy I utilize.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Ecotherapy / Nature Therapy 
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy 
  • Feminist Therapy
  • Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Integration of Different Therapy Models 
  • Mindfulness-Based Interventions
  • Nonviolent Communication (NVC)
  • Strength-Based Therapy
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

 

Therapy Groups​

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help people manage mental health conditions or cope with negative experiences and behaviors. One of the goals of group therapy is to bring people who share similar experiences together. 

Meeting other people recovering from or working through similar issues helps people realize that they are not alone. Group members and therapists can help each other by sharing information and offering advice. Group members can support, reassure, and help each other improve throughout the treatment. Below is the group I lead:

  • Young Adults 18-25 years of age
  • Parents
  • Grandparents
  • Addiction Recovery

Facility Accessibility

Morgan Health Centers and its Affiliates are outpatient centers and NOT an emergency care facility. In case of an emergency please contact a primary care physician or the local emergency room, police or 911.

Those with disabilities often face major barriers getting the health care services they need. Research shows that, compared to people with out disabilities, people with disabilities are less likely to receive comprehensive preventative care. Improving physical access to health care services is essential to achieving health equity. 

We recognize the needs of patients with disabilities, and make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and accommodate these patients.

  • Accessible Parking
  • Gender Neutral Bathroom
  • Service Animals Welcome
  • Wheelchair Accessible Building
  • Wheelchair Accessible Restroom
