Patricia Thorn Kish, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Lafayette
Are you ready to lead a more meaningful life but struggling to see the possibilities? Maybe you are longing to feel happy and wish you could experience joy again? Are you wishing for deeper, more intimate relationships? Struggling with work, school or health? How life unfolds is not always predictable. Sometimes, situations and feelings are too much to bear alone. You may want insight into your situation. You need tools. You certainly want results. We will work together to guide you to a place that feels hopeful again. My therapeutic approach emphasizes caring & attentive experience that builds upon lasting progress.
My roots are in Cognitive Behavioral and Family Systems. As a trained therapist, I believe deeply in family preservation, resolving conflict in relationships to develop and maintain healthy ways of interacting versus the opposite choice of disowning loved ones. I encourage communication, seeking & offering forgiveness, maintaining and re-establishing trust.
Reducing feelings such as depression, anxiety, and anger, can improve your life. There will be rich opportunities to work deeply at the heart of what troubles you. Change is not always a comfortable process, it can be easier with support. Reach out, take a risk, to improve your tomorrow.
