Cali Schneller, MS, LPC
I have experience working with all ages. However, I tend to work primarily with adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma and life transitions. For the past ten years I have used cognitive-behavioral therapy to help clients change their negative patterns of thinking and behavior. More recently, I began using EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which is a type of therapy that alleviates the emotional distress tied up in traumatic memories. This type of therapy works for a single traumatic event or negative core beliefs that have developed over years of negative experiences. With both of these types of therapies, I incorporate mindfulness including guided imagery, guided meditation, breathing and grounding strategies.
My Therapy Beliefs
I’ve had many clients come to me who report having a bad experience in therapy because they just talked and never resolved any concerns. What sets me apart from other therapists is that I take the time to get to know my clients on a deeper level, including their upbringing, worldviews, and beliefs about themselves. All these factors impact how a person thinks, feels and behaves in their day-to-day life.
My clients range from people who have been in therapy for years and have gained a lot of insight to people who are trying therapy for the first time. No matter what your experience with therapy, I want you to know that my office is a safe place to share your story. We will work together on creating goals and a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
A Person-Centered Approach
Often times people want change but aren’t sure how to do it by themselves. At Peace of Mind Therapy, we take a person-centered approach to mental health so people can gain a deeper sense of self as they face life’s twists and turns. No two experiences are alike, but we’re excited to partner with you as your process the challenges you’ve experienced.
