Great to meet you!
Hi my name is Doris Irvin and I have been a practicing LPC for 9 years, with my Master's Degree earned from University of Missouri-Kansas City. I specialize in Anxiety, Depression, relationship issues, communication, stress, among many others.
A bit about my approach to therapy
My main approach to therapy is to first build a warm, trusting, and approachable relationship with my clients. I firmly believe that a strong relationship is the key component of real change happening within the therapy unit. My primary theory of counseling is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which purports that our thoughts directly affect our feelings. Together we can learn to identify your unhelpful thoughts and change your feelings!
What you can expect from our first session
You can expect to come away from sessions with some tangible action items you can utilize to make your life better. I will help you discover coping skills, better communication in your relationships, and ways to minimize your anxiety and depression symptoms.
