WHAT THERAPISTS IN COLORADO SPRINGS HAVE TO SAY
Aimee Solis
Aimee Solis
Colorado Springs, CO 80908

What therapy approach(es) do you utilize? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I am eclectic in my approach. I really meet my clients where each one is at in their healing and growth process and tailor each person's therapy to them. I use a person-centered core approach and combine cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness based cognitive therapy, trauma-informed, family systems, and humanistic interventions into my clients' sessions. The issues that I specialize in are: depression, anxiety (including OCD), family issues (including divorce), therapy for children, therapy for teens (including teens who are self-harming), and women's issues with a specialty in postpartum depression, anxiety and adjustment.

How does one know if therapy is right for them?

I am a true believer in therapy. I believe that our total well-being, including our emotional health, deserves our attention. Therapy is a healthy, proactive way to prioritize your well-being. It can be right for someone who may be struggling with serious symptoms of a mental health disorder such as depressed mood, worry, insomnia and fatigue who realizes that their symptoms are seriously impacting their life. It can also be right for someone struggling with behaviors that are impacting their life such as cutting, substance use, or spending or those who are having trouble in their relationships. It is important to keep in mind as well that if you're not dealing with a mental health disorder, but have an interest in therapy, it can be used to help you grow and explore, to prioritize your emotional health, to learn new skills and to grow into your best self.

What can one expect to gain from therapy?

Through therapy, you can expect to find the support you need to explore, heal and grow. During the therapy process, you will collaborate with me, or the therapist you choose, to identify what you're looking to accomplish. You may decide to change behaviors that are having a negative impact on or life or you may be looking to reduce and manage symptoms such as anxiety or depression. After identifying what you'd like to change, you will collaborate to create a plan. It may be necessary to explore ways that trauma or other difficult experiences have impacted you, ways that you behave that are helpful or hurtful to your life and who you are in relationships. You can expect to work hard and that you'll probably have to learn new skills and behaviors to help you reach your goals. You can also expect that as your therapist, I will support you throughout the process to help you move forward.

What is unique about you as a therapist?

My clients have shared with me that they appreciate how gentle and supportive I can be along with my encouragement of their growth. I am a caring and compassionate counselor, who is skilled in teaching my clients new ways to help them achieve their goals. My first goal is always to create a safe place for my clients to be able to express themselves and find the courage to grow. I am also licensed and attended one of the top-rated schools in the country, Northwestern University, for my graduate education and counselor training. I have been specially trained to assess and treat mental health disorders and I have experience working with children, teens, families and women, specializing in children's (and adolescent's) mental health and adjustment disorders and women's mental health including postpartum depression.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse?

There is a big connection between mental health and substance abuse. I think of substance abuse as a way to escape and we all escape, whether it's by using substances, self-injuring, eating, shopping, running, taking a bath etc. These behaviors all help us to escape and deal with emotional pain. When the pain is overwhelming, like it is when someone has a mental health disorder, we tend to turn to coping in a way that we know will work. Some are lucky to have learned healthy ways of coping such as relaxation skills, talking to a loved one or watching their favorite tv show. Others turn to substances. Substance use helps people escape their emotional pain, but doesn't help them heal. It will never make the mental health disorder go away and will eventually become its own problem needing treatment. This is why dual diagnosis (mental health and substance use diagnoses) is so common.

What therapy approach(es) do you utilize? What issues do you specify treatment for?

I utilize an interpersonal neurobiological approach.  This approach emphasizes the importance of integration between neurological and psychological processes, while recognizing the absolute necessity of the therapeutic relationship.  Once rapport has been built, and the relationship is strong, the brain is able to access a unique state of mind that is essential to psychological healing.  This state then serves as the background for various evidenced based techniques such as mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, and processing of past trauma.

How does one know if therapy is right for them?

Therapy is right for you if you experience a problem that interferes with your ability to function at work or in your relationships.  Therapy is also right for you if you feel overwhelmed by your problem and are unsure of what action to take.

What can one expect to gain from therapy?

Everyone reacts differently to therapy.  However, most individuals can expect to experience a reduction in symptoms and an increased sense of control over their life.  

What is unique about you as a therapist?

I believe my focus on the integration between neurological and psychological process makes me unique.  Many therapists focus on the psychological aspects of mental health, and neglect important biological processes that often produce or exacerbate psychological problems.  In my opinion, this creates an incomplete and short-acting healing experience.  I focus on integrating these two domains and therefore creating long-lasting change that becomes hardwired into the brain and body.

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse?

Substance abuse and mental health are often "kissing cousins".  In fact, I have rarely encountered an individual with substance abuse issues who does not have some sort of underlying mental health issues.  Many people use substances to alleviate emotional and psychological pain.  Thus, substance use becomes the temporary band-aid that masks the true disruption to mental health.

How does one know if therapy is right for them?

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.

People have many different motivations for coming to psychotherapy. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks. Therapy can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives.

What can one expect to gain from therapy?

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

• Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values

What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse?

Mental health issue and the drug or alcohol addiction have their own unique symptoms that may get in the way of your ability to function, handle life’s difficulties, and relate to others. To make the situation more complicated, the co-occurring disorders also affect each other and interact. When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse as well. And when alcohol or drug abuse increases, mental health problems usually increase too.
