Hi there! My name is Cadi and I am a Licensed Masters Social Worker. As someone who has struggled with both anxiety and depression, I understand the weight that these two issues can cause in our everyday lives. I want to be able to help others not only understand, but be able to manage and work through these challenges. My main goal is to be a light to help guide you on your healing journey. To me, the best progress is made from the client-therapist relationship and it is my hope that my true authentic light and energy can help this professional relationship grow. With this in mind, I encourage my clients to go at their own pace to develop a positive healing environment.
Anxiety and depression can cause significant distress on day to day functioning and I am here to help you manage the symptoms along the way. I can help you gain knowledge and understanding on how anxiety affects the brain; how to work through anxious thoughts; and cope with day to day feelings of depression. Along with working through anxiety and depression symptoms with my clients, I also have training in couples therapy and utilize treatment approaches from Gottman Level 1 & 2. With these trainings, I am able to work with couples through conflict management, compromise, and building connection back into your relationship.
As a therapist, I provide person-centered and strength-based approaches. I work to encourage and support my clients so they never feel alone. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches to educate clients on how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can influence one another and the effects that these domains can have on our mental health. To ensure the safety of those with mental health I also have training in suicide prevention and ways to help cope with overwhelming feelings and emotions.
Still not sure you want to start? I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to determine if I would be a good fit for you. Not every therapist may be a good fit for you depending on your goals for therapy, so it is important for me to ensure all potential clients are making informed decisions.
