Individual Therapy, Group Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is the foundation of Karlee's approach, focusing on the idea that environment determines behavior. How a person responds to a given situation is the result of past learning, and usually behavior that has been reinforced. Coping skills I utilize are distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness, all part of Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Suffering with anxiety, depression, trauma and ptsd can range in severity and symptoms, requiring different interventions. I am eclectic in my approach so that I can meet the client where they need guidance the most. Coming from a strengths-based approach allows me to help the client discover the positive attributes in a situation rather than the negative.
Interests include exploring the Pacific Northwest with family and dogs. Running, cycling, hiking and cooking are just a few of Karlee's interests.
