We all think negatively at times; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel better and cope in the best way possible. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts rational or reasonable? Are they helpful in changing the situation or making us feel better? Are they in proportion to what has happened? Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a particularly effective form of psychotherapy that can help you learn how to feel better especially if CBT is part of a comprehensive treatment plan

I believe that the therapy process should be one in which the therapist and client work TOGETHER to achieve the client's vision. The relationship should be built on trust and mutual respect. I will offer guidance and recommendations if you request it, but will never tell you how you should or should not live your life. I believe you're an expert on your own life. Together, we will work to determine what you want from life, what's getting in the way, and what to do to help you feel better and let go of old behaviors or thought patterns that don't serve you anymore.

Psychotherapist

Callan Olive, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lakewood

I practice a form of psychotherapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT). It is based on the idea that thoughts and feelings are just a normal part of life and something we don't have much control over. Because of that, we need to spend less energy trying to control our thoughts and feelings and more energy working on our actual behavior and values. I will help you learn to overcome the difficult thoughts and feelings that come up for you while you pursue the things that are most valuable and meaningful to you.

Being properly diagnosis is the first order of business. Feeling comfortable with your therapist is also very important. Having clear and concise goals for psychotherapy helps both the client and therapist stay on course and ensure a successful outcome in a time frame that allows for efficient change that is long lasting. Also working in conjunction with medical personal can help better use the therapy process.

Psychotherapy varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Psychotherapy is a bit like a medical doctor visit in which it calls for a very active effort on your part. You will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions as well as on your own between sessions. Psychotherapy has benefits and risks. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. However, research shows psychotherapy benefits people who go through it. It leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reduction in distress.

In psychotherapy, you will start to more deeply understand your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors with a guide--your psychologist. What I often hear from the clients I meet is, "Wow, I never looked at my mother like that!" or "I guess it makes sense that I would react that way to my son, just like my father did with me." I help you turn yourself inside out & your world upside down so that you can see & experience your life differently, now.

I am trained in a variety of traditional and non-traditional treatment methods that I integrate in a holistic approach to psychotherapy. While grounded in scientifically proven methods such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I also integrate with treatment methods such as Positive Psychology which emphasizes the development of strengths over targeting weaknesses, and hypnotherapy approaches that incorporate subconscious and body-based processes.
