WORKING WITH BROOKE
Individual Psychotherapy & Holistic Life Coaching in Charlotte, NC
Brooke is a progressive thinker who utilizes traditional psychotherapy modalities and transformational coaching techniques in working with client's personal dynamics. She believes that coaching and therapy are not mutually exclusive. When used together, they can best get to the sources of core issues while focusing on action, accountability and follow through for optimal results.
During the first session, Brooke will come to understand what it is that you really want, things such as more peace, love, health or balance in your life. From the point of understanding where the work is going, you will begin a co-created journey of deep inquisition designed to identify barriers and illuminate the invisible subconscious forces that have been preventing you from fully experiencing your most joyful life.
Following each appointment, integration work is provided in order to extend the work beyond the session.
Brooke Osterhoudt is committed to creating a safe, inclusive environment designed to move through and transform occurrences such as depression, anxiety, addictions, grief and general stuckness or stagnation. These are just a few human experiences that catalyze the need for this work. Brooke truly looks forward to the opportunity to be a support partner on your journey.
What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy consists of a series of techniques for treating mental health and emotional disorders within a confidential, professional relationship. This treatment is aimed at the elimination of a client's suffering and the facilitation of change in a client's life to feel better, make positive changes and enjoy life more fully. Psychotherapy is often also referred to as Counseling or Therapy. I may use techniques such as CBT, DBT, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, or Internal Family Systems (IFS). I also offer EMDR which can be used to eliminate painful side effects, such as depression and anxiety, that result from big and little traumas such as physical or sexual abuse, death, grief, loss, breakups or addiction.
