Mission Statement

To help others help themselves by providing positive outcomes contributing to hope, growth and those ‘aha’ moments.

Our Team

Cauley & Associates, Inc., began its psychotherapy group practice in 2004.  Within our practice, we cover a wide-range of services/issues that are common in everyday life. We have a diverse group of clinicians with multiple focuses, specialties, and backgrounds. Prior to scheduling an appointment, we will have an initial consultation over the phone to get a sense of the issue and determine if we are a good fit or if a referral should be provided.

Biography

In the therapeutic process, my goal for my client is two part: create a safe and therapeutic environment allowing my client to explore emotional blocks and heal past wounds. Additionally, setting measurable, realistic and achievable goals allows my client to work toward future change. We work together to create an interactive therapeutic process. I believe that through the process of gaining insight and awareness, my client will develop healthy coping skills to overcome obstacles in their life after therapy has terminated and not foster dependency.

Biography
My approach is very collaborative and holistic, focusing on the client’s strengths and meeting them where they are in a non-judgmental atmosphere. I believe utilizing understanding and compassion, while encouraging a client to push their limits, allows them to grow. By integrating therapeutic and coaching techniques we can build on strengths to attain the personal growth needed to accomplish goals set forth together. I believe it is important for all of us who struggle in life with what troubles us is change our perspective and sometimes that comes in the form of asking for help to do this.I specialize in addiction, trauma family systems, and interpersonal relationships while meeting the client “where they are”. I utilize a variety of intervention models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Sober Coaching and being a Sober Companion, both therapy supported.
