Hi, I am Paige Dee (she/her). I believe every person deserves to live a life they find meaningful. However, a reality for many of us is that sometimes, living is tough, and meaningful wouldn’t be one’s word of choice to explain their life. Thankfully, significant benefits can come from being therapeutically supported while facing challenges and uncertainties. To provide this support to my clients, I approach treatment eclectically and draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy orientations, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. In addition, I draw from Feminist, Person-Centered, Strength-Based, and Solution-Focused orientations.
This all means that I am a therapist whose work focuses on the primary intersections of self-efficacy, social justice, and mindfulness. And I strive to help my clients positively adjust their faulty or irrational thoughts, behaviors, and emotional reactions to encourage effective changes and acceptance of themselves and living situations. When necessary, I work with clients to uncover how early-life experiences may affect them and how to improve held thoughts and feelings about these experiences. I enjoy helping my clients become increasingly more understanding of their current life situations by talking about what is going on and helping them recognize personal strengths and how to apply learned therapeutic skills to daily living.
I feel that empowering clients to be progressively more mindful and radically accepting of their present life is key to them uncovering paths towards a present and future they find meaningful. I am an Army veteran who enjoys supporting fellow veterans and their families. I also have recent experience in counseling college students. Through my years of educational studies, counseling experiences, and being a mother myself, I have developed a special passion for working with perinatal persons along with women from all walks of life. I am currently taking courses to become certified in perinatal mental health so as to serve the perinatal community better.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Sociology and Psychology from Texas A&M. And I received my Masters of Art in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University. I am currently working on the process of becoming a licensed associate professional counselor and am looking forward to further developing my skills by supporting clients as they move through the struggles and achievements of daily life.
I look forward to meeting you!
Paige only sees clients via telehealth.
