Learn. Grow. Evolve.
Through the highs and lows of life, sometimes the only way we can reconcile all of it is to remember: “I’m evolving.” Therapy can be a place to nurture new growth, understand yourself better, strengthen those important emotional muscles, and begin enhancing your life from the inside out.
At Miami Modern Counseling, we value a COLLABORATIVE approach. Together we will identify the patterns that are keeping you stuck, and work to change them. That process involves evaluating what is working and what isn't, bringing into conscious awareness some of your unconscious conflicts, and building new ways of managing life demands so that you may freely discard the old, less adaptive ways of coping.
Together, we can work towards…
Becoming curious about what is driving your symptoms/distress and reducing those negative experiences
Developing increased self-awareness
Determining your personal strengths and assets, and using them to reach your full potential
Practicing new perspectives, ways of managing emotions, communicating, being in the world
Working toward deeper connection and positive change in your most important relationships
What to expect in therapy...
Entering treatment can be exciting, nerve-wracking, and even intimidating. If you've never been to therapy before, you may be wondering what it will be like to start this process.
THE FIRST SESSION
The initial session(s) will consist of an evaluation of your needs. By the end of the evaluation, you will come away with some early impressions of what your work in therapy might look like. There would also be a collaborative discussion of your goals for treatment. You will always be in the position to determine whether to continue with therapy.
A TAILORED APPROACH TO FIT YOU + YOUR GOALS
The course of psychotherapy varies considerably, based on your particular situation, symptoms, and goals. Many different therapeutic methods may be applied in order to help you move toward positive and meaningful change. Usually a blend of insight-oriented approaches (like psychodynamic psychotherapy, existential psychotherapy, and interpersonal psychotherapy) and concrete skill development techniques (pulled from modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy [CBT], Dialectical Behavior Therapy [DBT], and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy [ACT]) will be used to help you achieve your goals.
You don’t have to go it alone
It's important to note that in order to have the best possible outcome, you will have to invest time and energy, not only in your sessions, but also in the time between sessions, thinking about and working on the themes that have been identified in therapy. And as therapists, we’re here to match your commitment at each step. The ultimate goal of therapy is to be able to end your work, and for you to move forward in your life from a position of increased strength, stability, happiness, authenticity and trust in yourself.
