Approach

Over the first few sessions, I work with you to develop a plan of action to help you feel better, to know what it will take to create change and to experience relief.  Together we’ll work to discover what exactly you want to be different in your life, and if you already know, how that difference will come about.  Together we will tailor a treatment approach using different psychotherapeutic techniques that fit your unique needs. Below are just a few of the approaches I offer:

Psychodynamic therapy helps with increasing insight about long-standing interpersonal patterns and conflicts.  Cognitive behavioral therapy is more directive and task-based, extremely effective for quickly reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression.  Mindfulness builds an ability to accept difficulties without hindering our ability to change them and move forward in our life. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) works to reprocess disturbing memories and the symptoms that accompanies them so that they no longer cause distress.  The Trauma Resiliency Model works with a client’s own nervous system to build a greater tolerance for distressful experiences and mental health symptoms while also helping clients reprocess previous traumatic events.

In all instances, my aim and expertise will help you more masterfully deal with difficult emotions and more skillfully cope with life’s adversity.
