Dee Young, MEd, LPC (69119)

Life is hard. But I believe we can manage the difficulties we face, and more importantly, learn to thrive by finding adaptive ways to better navigate and manage hardships.

 

My approach is non-judgmental and direct with compassion and honesty. I engage in active sessions and will not be a quiet listener who just takes notes. I work with clients collaboratively to establish therapy goals, staying abreast of them, and modifying as needed. I empower clients with in-session skills to learn, model, and practice   related  to  improving  emotion  regulation,  thought   shifting,  re-narration,

distress tolerance, and improving interpersonal interactions.

I utilize evidence-based approaches such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Somatic types of treatment, such as Emotional Freedom Techniques. I believe that childhood and early experiences/attachments shape how we relate to others, and I bring this understanding to the therapy room. In addition, I know that addressing early history trauma can be a difficult but an essential part of the therapeutic approach. I have the experience and evidence-based skills to provide solution-focused practices that can be pragmatically applied.
