I use the following therapies in my practice:
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
• Solution Focused Brief Therapy
• Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
• Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy
• Pia Mellody’s model of Post-Induction Training
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address problems such as depression and anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy stems from the concept that one’s problems, emotional difficulties and unhealthy behaviors originate from one’s perceptions about particular situations. In easy to understand terms, this means, that the way we feel (emotion) and behave (action) in a particular situation, is influenced by how we think (cognition) about the situation. Treatment using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can help individuals lead happier, healthier lives, as challenging perceptions and self-limiting beliefs can help lift debilitating emotions and improve overall behavior patterns. Research shows that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has successfully treated problems such as depression, anxiety and panic disorder.
As a solution-focused therapist, I will emphasize the “here and now.” I will focus on past events in therapy as it pertains to and impacts present situations.
I also work from an eclectic framework, which will enable me to draw on other theories and modalities to assist you in reaching your therapy goals. I will tailor the treatment specifically to what works best for your situation and work alongside you in the counseling process.
