Balance with Finding Direction Therapy LLC
Megan Bulleigh LPC
I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been in practice since 2016, during my time in this profession I've worked to expand my learning, techniques, and interventions in order to better help clients. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Adlerian Therapy, with focus placed in identity, self-esteem, anxiety, depression and trauma. My goal is to provide space for clients to challenge not only their thinking but also their behaviors in order to make the changes needed to find each individuals direction to a more fulfilling life.
Identity and Self-Esteem
Who we are and our understanding of our core values directs our behavior. When we struggle to know ourselves we struggle to make choices and move our lives forward. Exploring our identity while finding value in who we are can lead to improved well being and happiness. During therapy individuals can use the safe space provided to develop themselves and their identity while finding value in who they are.
One of the most common concerns facing those in the United States is Anxiety. Anxiety impacts an individuals' thoughts, behaviors, and physical well-being. Physical discomfort and overthinking are just a small part of how anxiety can manifest itself in ones life. Although anxiety can have a great impact on ones ability to function, there is hope. Through therapy individuals can learn to understand what is happening to them physically, challenge thinking, and change behaviors.
"Depression and anxiety also share an essential psychological component - namely, pushing people away from living in the present moment." When one is experiencing depression their ability to think clearly or as their true self is impaired; because of this individuals are unable to find serenity within their life. With the help of behavioral interventions and thought awareness those struggling through depression can find help.
The effects of trauma can have a significant impact on an individual's life in the present but trauma may not stop there. A person's health and ability to live the life they want can be impacted by trauma throughout a lifetime. Treating trauma begins with looking at the traumatic experience itself and then with understanding working towards preventing more trauma and finding the course of action that best suits each person.
