My Therapy Approach & Services
Laura Wilhoit, Ph.D., PMH-C
Clinical Psychologist (#26656)
One of the ways I approach therapy is to think about it as a sort of experiment. (Bear with me here.) Basically, I think there are a lot of variables in everyone's life, and my job is to help you figure out a combination of new variables to implement, such as increasing your sources of support, validation, and self-care, or applying new skills I might teach you, alongside minimizing or managing triggers (a.k.a. negative variables). Together, we can find a combination that works for you at this point in your life.
My goal is to help you reach your goal, whatever that may be. I am curious about what is working and what isn't working for you. If something isn't working for you anymore, I like to collaboratively seek solutions to determine what can change to improve your life. Life is about learning and adapting to our environment. But sometimes, in the process, we get stuck. We can benefit from an outside perspective, and I aim to support you during your journey.
My personality tends to be curious, thoughtful, and authentic. In therapy, sometimes we might laugh. Sometimes we might need a moment to process. Just like in life, what we need varies over time. Overall, I try to help you connect the dots, help you notice patterns that might contextualize experiences and, most importantly, use that information to help you figure out the best path forward.
