Brett Swords Practice Description
I am trained as a generalist and work with a wide range of people, but I specialize in working with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, adjustment problems, and life transitions, especially among young adults. Whatever it is that is getting in the way, I can help! I utilize evidence-based approaches and methods that have been proven to work. However, because there is no single approach that works for every person across all situations, I practice in a way that will be responsive to your unique needs. We may work on identifying problematic thoughts, putting new behaviors into action, or learning how to better identify, express, and manage your emotions. If your concern is relationship-related, we will explore your relationship patterns, identify factors that are having a negative impact on your relationships, and help you develop the skills to find and maintain healthy, fulfilling relationships. Regardless of the specifics, my approach to psychotherapy begins with a focus on the therapeutic relationship. The bottom line is that if you do not feel good about working with your therapist or you are not on the same page, then therapy is not likely to be effective. Therefore, I place a prime emphasis on providing a safe, supportive environment that is free from judgment. Additionally, I offer free 15-minute phone consultations so that we can both decide whether working together would be a good fit. Contact me today to schedule your consultation!
