About Dylan Cleary
Dylan has experience working with both adults and adolescents from diverse backgrounds. When working with clients, Dyan implements the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). As the client-therapist relationship is a collaborative process, Dylan would use the most beneficial modality to the client’s situation, as each client is unique. Beyond his use of implementing either modality, he is also a big advocate for the use of self-care, as this is an area he believes most of us seem to neglect. He thinks it is vital that we check in with ourselves from time to time, assess how we are doing, and be mindful of our limits. Practicing self-care is a great way to “recharge your battery.” He enjoys partaking in self-care methods like going on hikes, practicing mindfulness, and exploring new places to eat.

Throughout Dylan’s educational career, there is one practice that has stuck out to him more than others, and that is mindfulness. He likes it so much that it has become something that he tries to practice as often as he can. One of the reasons he is so fond of mindfulness is most likely due to its versatility. It can help aid in falling asleep, reduce stress, help with anxiety, and much more. One of the great things about it, is that majority of the exercises are easy to do and do not require a significant amount of time to complete.
