Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Giles "Stress, anxiety, and depression are issues many people face. These issues may be due to a current problem or situation. Chronic depression, anger, and self-destructive behaviors may also be related to long-term issues from childhood and adolescence. Early trauma can produce lifelong consequences that are treatable in the safety of the therapeutic relationship. My approach combines the insight oriented work of humanistic counseling with cognitive-behavioral techniques. Psychotherapy is usually very effective in helping individuals and families deal more effectively with difficult circumstances, by helping them reframe perceptions and problems in a healthier way.

I have a special interest in wellness, stress reduction techniques, and mindfulness training for trauma survivors,children with anxiety disorders, and individuals with life threatening illnesses. I am a holistic, person-centered psychotherapist who believes in the potential of every person to live a meaningful, purposeful life."
