Narrative Therapy

I am located in South Dakota and I am certified and trained to provide online narrative therapy in South Dakota, Minnesota, and Florida.

Narrative therapy is a style of therapy that helps people become—and embrace being—an expert in their own lives. In narrative therapy, there is an emphasis on the stories that you develop and carry with you through your life.

These are the core aspects of narrative therapy:

  • The deconstruction of problematic and dominant storylines or narratives
  • Breaking the narrative into smaller and more manageable chunks
  • Rewriting the script of the problematic and dominant storylines
  • Broadening your view and moving toward healthier storylines (this is also called the unique outcomes technique, which may help us better understand our experiences and emotions)
  • What is true for one person may not be true for another person
  • Externalizing the problem because you are not your problem
  • A healthy narrative will also help us make meaning and see purpose

Individuals, couples, and families can all benefit from narrative therapy. Those who define themselves by their problems, whose lives are dominated by such feelings as “I am a depressed person” or “I am an anxious person” can learn to see their problem as something they have but not something that identifies who they are.

This form of therapy can be helpful for people who suffer from these conditions, among others:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Addictions
  • Eating problems
  • Anger
  • General difficulties with emotion regulation
