My overall orientation is integrative, which means that I blend the active ingredients of several different evidence-based methods. Below is a partial list of the therapeutic methods I employ in my work. If you are curious about the efficacy of an approach for your specific issues (including those not listed here), please don't hesitate to inquire.
CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
CBT refers to a group of modern therapeutic approaches that stem from the view that our thoughts (cognitions), behaviors, and emotions are interrelated. This is good news, because if we create change in one, we can affect change in the others.
ACT - Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
ACT is an action-based psychotherapy approach that focuses on creating meaning and improving quality of life. A key tenet of ACT is that emotions, including painful emotions, are an appropriate response to certain life events and circumstances. Thus, as the name suggests, ACT is an intrinsically accepting and inclusive form of cognitive behavioral therapy.
My approach to healing naturally incorporates mindfulness practices. Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are two approaches that rely heavily on the vast benefits of the cultivation of mindfulness.
Individuals who are experiencing difficulties, such as pain, loss of sexual interest or pleasure, mood changes and anxiety, often benefit from including their partner(s) in treatment. The people we are close to impact us on many levels and we impact them, therefore it is only natural for them to be a part of our healing.
Every person is unique, there is only one you. I always tailor treatment to meet your needs and circumstances.
