Approach

Approach

I firmly believe that there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to psychotherapy. Within my therapeutic work, I blend a variety of approaches to mental health when working with my clients which can include; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Psychodynamic and even mindfulness based approaches. By completing various training modules in a variety of different emotion based theories and approaches to mental health, I am better equipped to work with individuals and teens struggling with a varying degree of mental illnesses. All approaches offered are focused on incorporating work that targets emotional regulation, deeper self exploration and personal healing and growth. In addition, my goal as your therapist is to show you how increased self-awareness empowers you to live your best, most authentic life.  

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a form of psychotherapy that treats presenting issues by modifying dysfunctional emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns. CBT focuses on solutions, encouraging clients to challenge distorted/negative cognitions or beliefs and change destructive patterns of behavior. CBT rests on the idea that thoughts and perceptions influence behavior. CBT is appropriate for people of all ages, including children, adolescents, and adults.

EYe Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a unique and alternative form of psychotherapy designed to diminish negative feelings associated with memories of traumatic events. Unlike most forms of traditional psychotherapy, EMDR focuses less on the traumatic event itself and more so on the disturbing emotions and symptoms that manifest in your day-to-day s a result from the traumatic event.

PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY

This form of psychotherapy is an in-depth form of talk therapy based on theories and principles of psychoanalysis. With the help of a therapist the patient is encouraged to speak freely about current issues, fears, desires, dreams and so on. The goal of treatment is to experience a remission of symptoms, increased self-esteem, acknowledgement of one’s abilities and an improved capacity for developing and maintaining more satisfying relationships.
